Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and sexy as hell.
Derek West rose from poverty to take the tech world by storm. He’s sexy, confident and gets any woman he wants. And who he wants is Cassie Storm, the rich girl he’s never been good enough for.
She’s desperate to save her family company and there’s only one man who can help. But Derek isn’t interested in helping. He wants to possess both the company and the woman he’s never been able to forget.
His plan? To seduce her out of his head. Except once he’s had a taste of Cassie, he doesn’t want to let her go. Her family remembers where he came from, and they won’t allow it. When the truth about their pasts comes to light, though, it may be Cassie who’s going down hard.
*All Billionaire Bad Boys Novels stand alone.
I feel like it has been forever since I read a book by this author. What have I been reading to keep me away from the pure joy that is Carly Phillips? I feel like I just sat down with an old friend to listen to her tell me a story. This is the third book in the Billionaire Bad Boys Novels. Don’t worry it is a stand alone novel and you didn’t need to read the first two books to enjoy this story. The plot is about Cassie, a rich girl from a rich family and Derek, the poor boy whose parents worked for Cassie’s parents. They had a connection, but hurtful words damaged whatever could have been before they even had a chance. Years later Derek is a very rich successful co-owner of a tech company and Cassie is trying to get an interview with the man she has never really forgotten. The chemistry between Cassie and Derek is pretty hot. Even though Derek’s first reaction when he meets Cassie is revenge, he can’t fight the attraction that he felt as a teenager. Especially after seeing the beautiful woman she has become. This is a pretty fast paced story with sexual tension, second chances and hidden agendas. This author is the queen of the happily ever after giving us a tie in to the next book of the series. There is strong character development as we get to see the main characters as teenagers and then adults. This is the perfect book if you need an escape from reality for a few hours.
