Review 'The Billionaire Bachelor' by Jessica Lemmon (Audio)


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30845304-the-billionaire-bachelor
Manwhore. That's what the board of directors-and the tabloids-thinks of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn't care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing-and no one-will keep him from his life's legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that's exactly what he'll give them.

Merina Van Heusen will do anything to get her parents' funky boutique hotel back-even marry cold-as-ice-but-sexy-as-hell Reese Crane. It's a simple business contract-six months of marriage, absolute secrecy, and the Van Heusen is all hers again. But when sparks fly between them, their passion quickly moves from the boardroom to the bedroom. And soon Merina is living her worst nightmare: falling in love with her husband . . .

My Review:


I must say I’ve been loving audiobooks more and more lately. So when I saw ‘The Billionaire Bachelor’ on Audible, a book I’ve been wanting to read for a while now, I didn’t hesitate for a second and bought it. And when I finished my previous audiobook, I started as fast as I could with this one.

In ‘The Billionaire Bachelor’ we meet Merina Van Heusen. Merina is a hardworking single woman who would do anything for her parents hotel The Van Heusen. It’s been Merina’s dream for years to inherit the hotel one day. A lot of Merina’s childhood memories are about times she spend in the hotel. So when her parents tell her they sold the hotel to billionaire and man-whore Reese Crane, she is furious. But there is a way Reese Crane will give the hotel back to Merina. All she has to do is marry him for six months, and the hotel will be all hers. Desperate, and broke Merina decides this is the only way to get her families property back, but when she’s married to Reese she finds out there is so much more to the sexy billionaire. 

I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The story is understandably very predictable, but I never got bored or didn’t enjoy myself. The two main characters Merina and Reese are really fun to get to know. From the fighting in the beginning to the romance and many hot scenes. I loved getting to know them and I felt myself wanting to keep on listening when it was time to stop. 

The best thing about these two main characters was definitely how passionate they both were about their work, and how much chemistry they had. I love people who just really want to do the best they can, and Merina and Reese definitely wanted to make the best out of their hotels. It was fun to hear how they both achieved that goal. And the chemistry between them was just amazing. You could almost hear it sizzling through the words.

The narrator Sasha Dunbrooke did an amazing job. She had a different voice for every character, and I would recognize the different characters by them easily. Very impressive. Marina and Reese really sounded like two different characters. And best of all you could really hear the emotions the characters felt by listening to the narrator.

There were a view moments that I found myself losing interest a little when there was yet another sex scene, I mean to much is too much. But Sasha Dunbrooke and the romance the author created between Merina and Reese kept me hooked until the end.

‘The Billionaire Bachelor’ was definitely an audiobook I enjoyed. And I would love to listen to the next book in this series, about Reese’s brother Tag. I definitely love to know more about all Crane brothers.
