I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
A woman working for her brother’s best friend must navigate the complicated secrets of their shared past and the growing feelings they have for one another in author Krichele Monroe’s “My Billionaire Casino Boss”.
My brother’s best friend, the billionaire casino owner, is my new boss!
I needed a job and well, he was hiring…not great!
We had a one-night stand a few years back, and we’ve kept it hidden from my brother Eric.
Eric is not the understanding type, and he would be extremely pissed to find out after all this time.
He made a pact with Thomas, when we first met, that I was off-limits in every way.
Current “fling” Hillary wants Thomas desperately, so I’m being asked to play “pretend fiance” to help get rid of her.
I really hate games…
Who would’ve guessed all our fake dates and light kisses would turn into so much more?
Now I crave this man and every inch of his chiseled, hard body. And that face…I have no words.
A whole lot of time faking it together turned into deep love (and a surprise baby)…
How will my brother handle the fact we’ve lied to him for so long?
And will he give us his blessing after all?
This was yet another fantastic contemporary romance from this incredible author. The thing I always love seeing is the chemistry and inciting conflicts that drive the protagonists together. The secret past that Thomas and Lily share and the fear of their secrets getting back to Lily’s brother are a unique twist on the will they-won’t they storyline. The fast pace of the narrative and the unique setting of Tahoe is an added plus to this gripping romance.
To me, the heart of this story rested in the tension both between the protagonists and the people surrounding them, as well as the emotional connection between these characters and the chemistry that brews between them. The shock of their shared past and the heat that builds between them as the plot of the “fake fiancee” takes hold and their close proximity grows into something far more than a simple boss-and-employee relationship was engaging and kept the reader invested in these characters, and the heat readers will feel due to the almost “forbidden” nature of their relationship as they hide it from Lily’s brother was deeply felt.
Thoughtful, emotional, and memorable, author Krichele Monroe’s “My Billionaire Casino Boss” is a must-read contemporary romance. The twists and turns in the story and the intense emotional connection readers will make with these characters made this a truly compelling read, and one I’d come back to time and time again.
