The Rebel Billionaire Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
We said we could do casual. We swore we wouldn't fall in love. We lied.
I didn't buy my house just so I could stare at the guy next door. I swear. It's not my fault he mows the lawn with his shirt off. His tattooed muscles are an eye magnet. I can't look away.
The first kiss is an accident. One taste and I have to have more. We were supposed to keep it casual. Neighbors with benefits. No big deal. When a client comes after me for turning him in to the FBI, Lucas swears he'll keep me safe. I'm not supposed to fall in love with him. That's not the deal. I'm walking straight into broken heart, and I can't stop myself.
My new neighbor is a nightmare. Or a wet dream. Charlotte Winters, the crown princess of the Winters clan. It shouldn't be hard to keep my distance. We have nothing in common. I grew up not knowing where my next meal was coming from. She grew up with a personal chef. But Charlie isn't what I expected. It's not just that she's funny and determined and sexy as hell. She's vulnerable. She's in danger. And she turns to fire in my arms.
One kiss and I'm in too deep to walk away.
I have no business being friends with a woman like her, much less claiming a place in her bed. Too f**king bad. Now that I've had a taste of Charlie, I'm not giving her up. Not until I have to. Even if it destroys us both.
The Rebel Billionaire is a stand-alone romance with a happy ending. It's the fifth book in the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires series and reveals more about the notorious Winters family. You can listen to it on its own; everything you need to know is explained, but once you get a taste, you'll want to listen to the others. ;)

If I had to choose two adjectives to describe this book, they would be SWEET and STEAMY. Yes, believe it or not, both apply in this book! And about 80% through the book, I was fighting off tears, as well.
Well done, Ivy Layne! The characters are well-developed, and the plot works and moves well.
I do have two questions:
1) He and she both are well-to-do, and both of them are rebellious, but neither of them is a billionaire. Where did the title fit?
2) There is mention of an adopted out cousin, whose paperwork she finds in the attic. I thought sure I knew who it would turn out to be, but it wasn't mentioned again. Where did that child go?? Why even mention it, if it wasn't part of the story?
Even with those questions, it was an excellent read.
This couple had good chemistry, and the story was interesting. I liked the characters for the most part. Do I wish the heroine hadn't cried so much? That's affirmative. Especially because she kept saying that she never cries (insert eye roll here). Not a big deal. Do I wish the hero didn't mention "this is not long-term" about a hundred times? Of course. Again, not that big of a deal. However, the reason I deducted a star was because 1) the heroine agrees to have a quick, fun, "just sex" affair and it was too cliché that SHE wanted more, SHE was clingy and SHE expected more. And 2) I detest instant forgiveness after the conflict. Other than those minor issues that are mine alone, this was a marvelous book.
I can recommend this one as well as book 7.
After getting fired from her family’s company by her brother, angry, frustrated and hurt Charlie moves out of the family home to live her recently purchased fixer-upper. Charlie and Lucas’ story begins when she’s drowning her sorrows by drinking her brother’s insanely expensive whiskey. Neither are looking for a relationship but are attracted to each other so they agree to a sex only, no strings relationship.
Charlie transitions from working long hours at a job she is really good at but doesn’t love to being unemployed, living off her savings. When she is attacked outside her home, Lucas steps in to offer protection.
Charlie is a sassy, strong willed, beautiful young woman from an elite family. Lucas is a gorgeous man from the wrong side for the tracks. I really enjoyed their journey to love and highly recommend this series!!
