BILLIONAIRE by Juliette Jones Publication Date:December 20, 2013
Lila Carmichael is a good girl, a high-achieving academic, punctual to a fault, unfailingly conscientious – and embarrassingly inexperienced. After graduating from Princeton, Lila moves to New York City and begins her job search. Innocent and naïve, she is swept away by an uncharacteristic bloom of total abandon as soon as she meets the tall, dark-eyed CEO of Wolfe Enterprises. Under Alexander’s potent influence, Lila is thoroughly transformed from demure virgin to lusty goddess in just two days. Given her upbringing, it’s only natural that Lila would be attracted to such a pinnacle of stability, but as emotion and lust entwine, she begins to question the motives behind her covetous, hedonistic desires. Alexander Wolfe needs a new assistant to help him run his publishing empire. One résumé in particular catches his eye and he decides to interview the candidate one-on-one in his private penthouse office. When a green-eyed goddess walks in, Alexander, for the first time in his life, finds himself powerless to resist. The difficulties of his past ensure that his protective instincts are fiercely attuned, and Lila’s vulnerabilities, combined with her nubile body and voracious new appetites, only succeed in ensnaring Alexander past the point of no return. Set in New York and Paris, Lila and Alexander’s connection is a whirlwind of lust, love, jealousy and obsession. Will they find their happy ever after? _________ BILLIONAIRE (Complete Book) is approximately 310 pages. It is a serialized eBook originally published as a series of chapters; It contains adult themes, strong language and sexual situations, and is intended for adult readers.
Ok... where do I begin? This is one of those books you either hate or love. Lucky for me I really enjoyed this read. I think that some readers might not relate or have the same opinion but thats just it. It is an opinion. Why do I think they won't relate or like? Well the book is basically about sex. There is a story line in there and its a good one ,but if you don't like reading about sex then stop and don't pick this one up. Otherwise you will really enjoy this read.
The characters are entertaining and the story line is great. I liked the "innocent girl" who meets the "sexy billionaire" read. This is exactly that. You get what you ask for with this read and I loved it.
1. Alexander never had sex without a condom until approximately twenty minutes after he meets Lila. 2. Lila graduated from Princeton in three years with a 4.0 GPA. This is not obvious during her job interview :) 3. Lila ran away from home when she was ten years old. Alexander’s past is equally dark. Instant, white-hot lust draws them together but it’s their damages that bind them. 4. When Alexander first takes Lila shopping at Barneys, the total cost of her new clothes, boots and jackets (unbeknownst to Lila) was $78,000. 5. Alexander is a talented surfer. 6. Alexander’s favorite band is the Rolling Stones. He also likes Mozart. 7. On poker night, Alexander wins more than $350,000. Lila’s jackpot that particular night is more … physical in nature :) 8. Alexander owns the New York City skyscraper he lives in. He also owns two Maseratis, two limos, a Maybach, a Ferrari, a Ducati, two Lamborghinis, a yacht and a Gulfstream jet. Aside from his Fifth Avenue penthouse, his other residences include a hotel in Paris (where he takes Lila), a mansion in the Hamptons, an island in Maine, spacious studio in Key West, a beachfront condo in Hawaii, a city block in Houston and a bungalow in Malibu with a 12-acre vineyard and a view of the ocean. 9. Alexander’s brother Jake is guilty of insider trading and his favorite food is apple pie. These details will become relevant in the next book(s) [Jake will also get his own book (BADBOY, Billionaire #3). 10. The ring Alexander buys for Lila costs one million dollars. He buys it at Tiffany & Co.
