She's an investigative journalist in trouble. He's a billionaire CEO who has sworn off women for the foreseeable future, but has the ability to save her. They're two people who belong together and never really recognize it until the unthinkable happens!
I've known Chase Durand since childhood. He's drop-dead gorgeous, sophisticated, ridiculously wealthy, and wildly intelligent. Unfortunately, he's also my best friend's brother and completely unattainable for me. Always has been, even though I've had some kind of idiotic attraction to him for the last decade.
I can't say that Chase and I are really...friends. We're more like friendly adversaries whenever we meet up as adults.
Sure, he still treats me like an honorary sibling, just like his own little sister. Regrettably, I haven't seen him in that light since I graduated from college, and probably never will again, so I avoid him as often as possible.
Until the day that I just can't ignore the way I feel anymore.
Until the day he literally saved my life in a way I never would have believed possible if it hadn't personally happened to me.
Until the day I realize that there's so much more to Chase Durand than the cocky, brilliant, unbelievably hot billionaire that people see on the surface.
Until the day I see the pain he's always tried to hide from the rest of the world.
After all that, we're much too close to go back to the way we used to be. He's healed my body and my psyche. I can't walk away from Chase until I unravel the enigmatic man and do the same for him, even if it costs me both my heart and my soul in the process...
***Author Note: This is a billionaire romance with a friends to lovers and best friend's brother trope. If you like protective hero romance and rescue romance with a strong heroine, this might be the book for you. I highly recommend starting with Hudson's story, California #1 in The Billionaire's Obsession series since Hudson, Jax, Cooper and Chase are all related. Happy Reading!***
Book 19 in The Billionaire's Obsession Series coming August 15, 2023
Although this story is part of The Billionaire's Obsession series, it is the first book of the California Billionaires and can easily be enjoyed as a standalone billionaire romance.
Just when I thought I was destined to die in a foreign country after being kidnapped while doing a geological exploration, a mysterious rescuer shows up just in time to save my life. Unfortunately, my liberator also happens to be the co-CEO of Montgomery Mining, my employer, and a billionaire with an attitude. At first glance, Hudson Montgomery seems like the quintessential gorgeous billionaire with plenty of money to burn, and no concern for anyone but himself. The arrogant billionaire I could handle, but I wasn't quite so sure how to deal with the amazing guy I discovered once I looked past the superficial exterior. The one who stayed by my side as I recovered mentally and physically from the trauma of being a hostage.
There was so much more to Hudson than just billions of dollars, a prestigious lastname and a very handsome face. When the white-hot chemistry between the two of us finally explodes, do I trust the man I've come to know, or do I accept that Hudson Montgomery is the same guy the rest of the world sees?
Maybe my two older brothers had lost their minds over a woman, but that was never going to happen to me.
I'd never believed in soul mates, romantic love, or happily ever after.
The only thing any woman had ever wanted from me was the Montgomery name and all the billions of dollars and luxuries that came with it.
Those facts had been proven to me over and over again until I met Victoria "Torie" Durand, my best friend's little sister and the one woman who wasn't impressed by my wealth or my name.
Torie might need more than I was capable of giving, but I found it downright impossible to turn away from the haunted look in her eyes.
I was either going to have to let her turn my world upside down or I had to walk away.
Turns out that I'm not that jerk who can turn away from a woman who needs help.
But what's going to happen when she's perfectly capable of standing on her own two feet again and I don't want her to leave....?
You could say I'm a nursing student who is definitely down on her luck. My entire life has been a struggle for me. But I'm almost through the hard times, nearly done with nursing school so I can build a better life than the one I was given. I'm so ready to move from full-time waitressing to a professional nursing career. Until....disaster strikes just as I enter the home stretch. Through no fault of my own, I'm about to be homeless, and I'll end up kissing all my dreams goodbye unless some kind of wonderful, surprise event occurs, and great things just don't happen to a girl like me.
Or so I thought...until a miracle shows up in the form of the mysterious, stubborn, handsome billionaire, Simon Hudson. He makes me a bargain that's almost impossible not to accept when I'm looking at homelessness, and giving up everything I've worked so hard to achieve. Do I dare trust a wealthy mystery man that I don't even know? Simon has secrets and hidden pain that inexplicably draws me to him, but once I'm caught up in his web, will he ever let me go?
About This Series: This is the first of many bossy billionaire romance books in The Billionaire's Obsession series. This boxed set billionaire romance collection includes all of Simon and Kara's books, including the two holiday romances that were written after the core story.
I never expected the man I saw as nothing but a billionaire player to be the only person who could rescue me from near insanity.
One moment, everything was perfect.I was finally Dr. Harlow Lewis, research geoscientist, and I was actually employed at Montgomery Mining Laboratories, the crème de la crème of labs for my specialty.
I also had good friends, a supportive parent, and a budding relationship with a great guy. Add all of those things together and it was impossible for my existence to be anything less than ideal.
I had exactly the life I'd always wanted, until it...wasn't.
I guess I never realized that brief periods of perfection could instantly be followed by a nine day, horrific hostage situation that would forever change the woman I'd been before that incident.Oddly, after my release, the only person who knew that I was struggling to get my life back was Jaxton Montgomery, my billionaire boss, and the king of one-nighters
. Not exactly the perfect confidante, right? The two of us barely spoke unless it was company business, especially after I'd turned down a date with him two years earlier.
What rational female would want to have dinner with a man who was known for his one-and-done dating behavior? Maybe Jax wasn't the guy I would have chosen to be the person who would drag me out of the darkness and back into life again, but he was the only one stubborn enough to do it.
He systematically broke down all of defenses until I reached out and clung to him like he was the only lifeline I had.
It wasn't until I got to know him that I realized that Jax was so much more than the playboy he was portrayed to be in the gossip columns.
He was patient, he didn't judge, and he had a wicked sense of humor. Even stranger, he understood what I was going through, even when I didn't understand it myself.
Unfortunately, he was also the hottest guy I'd ever met, and as our bizarre friends-but-not-really-friends relationship continued, it was getting harder and harder to fight the intense chemistry between the two of us.
What happens when a guy you thoroughly disliked just a few months ago suddenly becomes your everything?
Jax had helped me claw my way back into my life, but was I brave enough to risk everything all over again to keep the one man I'd always wanted but could never have?
Author Note: This novel is the complete story of Sam and Maddie, but reading The Billionaire’s Obsession – The Complete Collection (Simon and Kara’s story) first is highly recommended to enhance your reading pleasure.
Billionaire Sam Hudson has pretty much lived his life with no apologies because he tries never to do anything that he’s sorry about…except for what he had done in the past to Dr. Madeline Reynolds. Many years and regrets later, Sam meets up with Maddie again by chance; his brother Simon is marrying Maddie’s best friend and the two of them are forced to be civil. But Sam wants to be more than polite, and he wants another chance to make things right, so he offers Maddie a bold proposition, an offer he knows she’ll have a very hard time declining even though she hates him.
Dr. Madeline Reynolds adores her best friend Kara and her fiancé Simon, but being forced into the company of Sam Hudson, because they are both in Simon and Kara’s wedding, is pure torture. She’s hated Sam for years, but when he offers her a bargain, something near and dear to her heart, she’s torn between her dislike for the man and the offer of something she’s always desperately wanted. Once, Sam Hudson nearly destroyed her, but Maddie discovers that sometimes things aren’t always what they appear to be. Is Sam really a devious heart-breaker, or is there something more to him beneath the surface?
Can two people with so many years of hurt between them learn to trust each other again?
I really want to hate Dylan Lancaster.
He hurt my best friend, and nearly destroyed her relationship with his identical twin brother. So, I decide that someone needs to rein him in so he doesn't try to demolish the couple completely before their wedding takes place. Unfortunately, the only woman who would try to take on that impossible task is...me.
It's only six weeks, right? Surely I can tolerate the womanizing, obnoxious jerk and keep him out of trouble so that no more of his scandals hit the media before his brother's wedding. I'm a public relations crisis manager. Squashing bad press is what I do, and I do it extremely well for my high profile clients.
What I don't count on is actually starting to like the glimpses of the real Dylan I begin to see underneath all of his cynicism. Nor did I ever imagine that I'd become so attracted to him that I could barely breathe every time he gets close to me.
Dylan is a man who has suffered profound emotional pain. I can sense it. I can feel it. The question is: Can I possibly reach the real Dylan Lancaster before it's too late?
Note: This is an enemies to friends to lovers British billionaire romance with an American heroine. I'd recommend reading Damian's story first in Tell Me You're Mine, Book 1 of The British Billionaires to enhance your reading pleasure.
