Billionaire’s Club, Book 2
Synopsis: In The Billion Dollar Player by Mandy Baxter, Jase Blackwell, starting tight end for the Dallas Cowboys, is a pro when it comes to football—and to women. Never one to shy away from a challenge, « Billion Dollar Blackwell » is finally able to get the cute waitress he’s had his eye on out for a little fun. But when their steamy encounters inspire Jase to play better than he ever has before, he has to wonder if this exciting woman is more than just a good luck charm… Avery Lockhart doesn’t understand why a pro football player would want to go out with her. Incredibly wealthy and undeniably sexy, Jase Blackwell is everything she thinks she’s not. Getting a little closer to this enigmatic billionaire, however, proves too much for Avery to resist. But as their passion heats up, so does Jase’s game play, and soon, the rumors start to fly. Is Avery only being kept around to ease Jase’s pre-game superstitions? Or, like she believes, does their connection run deeper…?
Review: What a pleasure to read the second novel of this short stories series. After discovering Riker in the first volume, we turn here to his brother, Jase. This boy looks like his brother in many ways, marked by life, trying to prove he has talent and does not have money at heart despite his lifestyle. He is a very talented football player who only goes up.
So we discover this man at a party in his honor and it is during this same evening as his eyes land on Avery, a rather clumsy waitress. But while she intrigues him, our hero will try to see if he can ask her out for a date and to his surprise, a man who is used to having everything he wants (as his brother elsewhere), the young woman refuses. A new challenge is launched. But as their relationship progresses, how to know how it will end for these two different souls?
I really enjoyed once again this novel. This new couple featured here is very touching and we understand why they have both doubts. Avery is a sweet young woman who does not really trust him and it’s true that it hurts my heart to see the states in which she is found, but it’s nice and touching to see them both happy. Both tries to become what they want and their history is just beginning.
I can only advise you to read these stories if you’re a fan of contemporary romances, a great time.
