Synopsis

The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success – at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love…

Billionaire Logan Hawkings needs a vacation.
He’s had a rough time after the death of his father and the betrayal of his fiancée. But with a visit to a recent business acquisition—a private island resort in the Bahamas—he has a chance to mend his broken heart.
When a hurricane blows in, a misplaced passport and a stalled elevator bring Logan together with an unusual woman named Bronte. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met—down to earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato.
She also has no clue that he’s rich…

Bronte Dawson, a waitress from the Midwest, is stranded with the hotel’s domineering yet sexy manager Logan. What’s the harm in a little fling when it’s just the two of them, alone in paradise? But after several steamy island nights in Logan’s arms, Bronte’s ready to give her heart—and her body—to the man in charge.

But she soon discovers there’s more to Logan than he’s told her…a billion times more. Now, Bronte’s caught in a whirlwind affair with one of the world’s most powerful men. But can their love endure their differences or will it all just blow over?

My Review

Summary 

Bronte, was thrilled when she won a trip to a Bahama resort, but her luck turns when a hurricane comes in, and during the chaos she is stuck in a elevator with a man she believes to be the manager of the resort. After some time, they realize that no one is coming for them, and they must rescue themselves. They manage to get out of the elevator, and find the resort abandoned, both Bronte and Logan forgotten. They spend days together, and a connection forms, passion erupts and they spend those precious days together learning each other, but then Bronte learns when they are rescued who Logan really is, a Billionaire that became the resorts newest owner. And before Bronte realizes it she is thrown into a world that is so unknown to her, a world that she isn’t sure she can fit into to, but will the love Bronte and Logan have be enough to last?

The Hero 

Logan, is a billionaire, and is part of a brotherhood that became close friends in college and they made a pact with each other. A pact that must remain secret at all costs. Logan, doesn’t know love or affection. All he knows is the greed of women, and how they just see him for his credit card and not as a real person. He has little faith in women until he meets Bronte who charms him with her knowledge of Plato and is so honest and genuine that he can’t resist her. What was truly fun about Logan as the hero, is that he is a man that wants something real in a relationship. You see how he needs it and isn’t afraid to admit it or when he is wrong. He is much deeper than a rich businessman, we see how much he needs love and a woman that will stand up to him.

The Heroine 

Bronte, is a heroine that you just admire, and she sparks some interest in ancient history. Bronte has a degree in ancient history, but still works as a waitress because despite the horrid pay, she loves working with people. She is carefree and down to earth, and loves the simple things in life. What was most fun about Bronte as a character was seeing how she handles conflict and challenge. She is quite brave and she maintains her own identity when brought into Logan’s world of prestige and wealth.

Plot and Story Line 

I have been hearing some great things about this series, so I decided to read the first book up, and boy did I love this story. It just kept me so interested and involved, and the authors writing is superb…I love the way she makes the reader fall in love with the story. I am not always a big fan of billionaire romances, they have to be done right, and despite my reservations, I fell for this story hard. I loved everything about it. From the island fling that Logan and Bronte have, to making love in a freezer, how Bronte wins over his friends, and the way she gets Logan to become humble…and even the signs of another love story that is in the next book. What was most fun about this story was seeing how Logan and Bronte flounded their way through a relationship, both side makes mistakes but I found that most endearing…seeing them make mistakes but still find a way to work as a team and make a future together. There was many aspects of their relationship that was easy to relate with in a very realistic way. From beginning to end, I found myself falling in love with this story…with its charm and poignant love story…its guaranteed to warm your heart.

The Cover 

I honestly don’t know what I think about this one. In all honest I like it, I don’t mind a little bling-bling, but what my issue is how it relates with the story. I do prefer something that connects better with the story and characters. So as of right now I am undecided if I love it or not.

Overall View 

Stranded With A Billionaire is a charming love story that shows how love tests us all in ways we don’t quite imagine. This is a love story that promotes passion and raw emotion, and learning to trust again. Heartwarming from beginning to end!!

  1. Making love in a freezer ?!! That’s a new one ! Every time I see “billionaire” in a title, I flee, lol ! But your review made me think twice about it, I’ll add it to my list and might consider reading it 🙂

  2. Yay!! I’ve really loved the two I’ve read of hers so far. I need to get back to this one. SO excited to hear it rocks.

    And on the cover. I am so not a fan of the ones for the series. They just made no sense to me for the two I’ve read. If they’re gonna do the random objects/images they really need to fit the story somehow. Roni Loren’s series is like that. They’re random but in a way connected (at least the ones I’ve read so far).
