Veronica Reviews: THE BILLIONAIRE BACHELOR by Jessica Lemmon
The Billionaire Bachelor
Reese Crane, CEO of Crane Hotels, appears just as cold as the interior of his hotels. With the retirement of his father, Reese finally sees his future ahead of him…all he ever wanted and worked his entire life towards. But when the Board of Directors for Crane Hotels threatens to strip him of his CEO title because of his womanizing and lack of family stability, Reese is determined not to be thwarted from his dream…even at the cost of giving up his bachelor lifestyle.
Merina Van Heusen has grown up living and working in her parents’ quirky and bohemian style hotel. The Van Heusen is known for its ambiance, and no one is more shocked than Merina to find out that her parents have sold her beloved hotel to Reese Crane. In a fit of rage, Merina marches over to his lofty office and demands he give her back the Van Heusen…no matter his price.
Reese and Merina make a marriage bargain to both gain what they believe is most important to them. But somewhere along the way, they find material things mean nothing…and love is found in the most unlikely of circumstances.
The Billionaire Bachelor is the first book I’ve read by Jessica Lemmon, and it won’t be the last! While not my favorite troupe, I found she made the usually arrogant billionaire/CEO likeable from the beginning. The chemistry between Reese and Merina was smokin’ hawt, and I especially enjoyed how Merina wasn’t afraid to fight for what she wanted. Highly recommend this story to both fans of this genre as well as second chance romances!
