Waking Up With a Billionaire by Katie Lane
Description: He can have anything he wants…except her
Famed artist Grayson Beaumont is the most elusive of the billionaire Beaumont brothers. He has a reputation for seducing any woman with only a look, word, or sensual stroke of his brush. But now Grayson has lost all his desire to paint . . . unless he can find a muse to unlock his creative-and erotic-imagination.
Chloe knew she might have to shed her clothes when she agreed to pose for the celebrated artist, but she wasn’t expecting to shed all her inhibitions as well. Under his intense scrutiny, there’s nothing she can hide…including a secret from her past that, once exposed, will change how he looks at her forever.
I read the final book in the Overnight Billionaire series right after reading the second book. In the second book, it was clear that Grayson and Chloe were going to be the main couple for the last book. There is a bit of a gap between the two books. Over the course of those few months, Grayson, the youngest Beaumont brother, is dealing with a block on his painting abilities. He previously met Chloe around the time the block first started. Chloe was an escort with an abusive boyfriend who Eden, with the help of Grayson, was able to rescue her from. Chloe clearly has a hidden past that she is running away from and at the beginning of the book, she is determined to leave again. In a less than ethical move, Grayson detains her until Eden returns from her honeymoon. Grayson is attempting to manage French Kiss while both his brothers are engrossed in their personal lives.
This book was a satisfying conclusion to the series. I would recommend reading it if you have read the first two books. There were nice glimpse of Grayson’s brothers and their wives. Also, since there were hints of chemistry between Chloe and Grayson in the previous book, it was fulfilling to see them enter a relationship. They both had past issues to overcome and which threaten their relationship. I will say, I was a tad disappointed by the reveal of what drove Chloe to run away. In my opinion, it didn’t seem like a legitimate reason to leave home as a teenager. That being said, she did learn to work through her past mistakes and that made her an intriguing heroine. Honestly, both characters made mistakes and jumped to conclusions but that just made them more relatable. Katie Lane can definitely write a book that draws me in from beginning to end. While this wasn’t my favorite book in the series, I’m glad I read it and I did enjoy it.
