Pretty Much a Perfect Romance
I listened to the audiobook of this, the sixth book in the Billionaire Boys Club series by Jessica Clare. First, let me congratulate myself for making it to book six in a series - not because this series isn't great, but because I have such ADD when it comes to reading! My attention always jumps to something else and I rarely finish a series. So Yay me! Now that that is out of the way, let me say that when it got to the second half of this book, I couldn't stop listening. In fact, I listened until 1:30 in the morning - and when I sleepily rolled out of bed a few hours later and got ready for work, I couldn't regret the fact. Because this book was so good!
In One Night with a Billionaire, we finish up Cade and Daphne's story, characters we have met before in the previous books in the series (so please do not go into this book hoping that it is a standalone, because it really isn't). But wait - Cade can't get with his childhood friend Daphne, the drugged out horrible popstar from previous books can he? Well, there's the rub. Does he or doesn't he? What if he has a one night stand with Daphne's make up artist, Kylie, and falls head over heels for her instead? Wouldn't that cause major complications? Well of course. But the story was worth the roller coaster of a ride.
We finally get to really know Cade in this book. He steps away from being the good, easy, placating guy he has always been in the past, and finally reaches for what he wants. He finally understands that sometimes you have to be a bit ruthless, you have to take charge, and if you really want something, you have to go after it. The good guy can win, but only if he acts a bit bad now and then. Kylie is such a sweet character, but boy is she damaged. Her insecurities really struck a cord with me. Cade has to chase her, and chase her, and chase her again. But the fact that he does, is so, so thrilling. It made me want to cheer.
The whole series of books in Clare's Billionaire Boys Club are good, including the two novellas, His Royal Princess and Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding. They are great escape stories about rich guys and the girls that win them over. They are happy stories and stress reducers for sure. Read them in order for a break from this world and you'll end up with a smile on your face. You'll be tired the next morning, but sometimes, it's worth it.
