Beauty and the Beastly Billionaire . . .
Eli Crane is one tough bastard. After an explosion left him injured and honorably discharged from the Marines, all he wants is to be left alone. Yet his brothers insist he take a greater role in the family business. They’ve hired him ten personal assistants-and Eli sent each one packing as fast as possible. But when beautiful number eleven walks through the door, Eli will do anything to make her stay.
Isabella Sawyer’s employment agency can’t afford to lose Eli Crane’s business. Her plan: to personally take on the role of his PA, and secure her reputation with the wealthy elite in Chicago. But this beauty and her hot billionaire bad boy soon find themselves mixing business with pleasure in the most delicious ways. And passionate, stubborn Isabella won’t rest until she tames this wicked beast . . .
The Bastard Billionaire was an excellent third and final installment in the Billionaire Bad Boys series, and I really enjoyed reading Eli and Isabella’s story. Jessica Lemmon writes contemporary romance so well, and I have thoroughly enjoyed her writing style in each and every book that I’ve read from her.
Eli and Isabella were wonderful characters, and I really loved their personalities and chemistry together. This book was written in third person POV and I loved reading the story from both of their perspectives. It was great to see what each of them was thinking and feeling throughout. Eli and Isabella certainly had plenty of heartbreak and up and down moments in this book, and there were certain parts that were a little frustrating and I wished had gone differently, but overall their story was amazing and I enjoyed it very much. The secondary characters were wonderful as well, and I loved seeing familiar faces and couples from the previous two books in the series.
With all of that being said, I was very happy with the conclusion to Eli and Isabella’s story, and I’m sad to see this series come to an end. I would have loved an epilogue that was set a little ways into the future, but I’m a sucker for epilogues, so that’s just my opinion. If you love contemporary romance like I do, I highly recommend checking out Jessica Lemmon’s book, especially her Second Chance and Billionaire Bad Boys series!
