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.

WAKING UP WITH A BILLIONAIRE BLITZ EXCERPT

 “Stay right where you are . . .”

Stretched out on the floor in front of Grayson, Chloe just felt sexy. The feeling only intensified as he took a seat and started to draw.

The way he painted was twice as sensuous as the way he drew. The brush was like an extension of his hand and the canvas her body. Wherever his hot gaze landed, she felt the stroke of his brush. Her feet. Her legs. Her breasts. Her warm center.

He made her feel beautiful. Breathtaking. And wicked.

She now understood what being “captured on canvas” meant. Right now she was Grayson’s. For all eternity, she wanted to be . . .

“Grayson’s.”

She didn’t realize she had spoken until his hand halted in mid-brushstroke. His gaze found hers, and he dropped the brush and slowly rose from the stool and looked down at her with hungry eyes. She remained perfectly still.

A willing sacrifice on the altar of Grayson . . .

“Who told you that I’ve bedded hundreds of women?”

“No one had to tell me. If you make the other women you paint feel the way I do, it just makes sense.”

Grayson lifted his head, and his eyes drilled right through her. “How do I make you feel, Chloe?”

It was past sexual attraction. Past anything she had ever felt with another man. But she couldn’t tell him that. Not when she was leaving. So instead of answering, she leaned in and kissed him. She kissed him with everything she had.

Without breaking the kiss, he stood and pulled her up with him. The warmth of his body spooned around her made her feel warm and secure, and she closed her eyes and drifted. She was in that place between wakefulness and dreamland when he whispered.

“You’re wrong, Chloe. You’re the only woman I can’t resist . . .”

Review: 

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.

A Billionaire After Dark

A Billionaire After Dark by Katie Lane

25861993Description: With endless wealth comes irresistible temptation . . .

It’s an undisputed fact that Nash Beaumont is the hottest of the Beaumont brothers. His slow, sensual smile charms every French Kiss employee-and tempts every woman to buy the company’s lingerie. But beneath Nash’s raw charisma is a dark, kinky side that he struggles to control . . . a side that may be exposed by one lovely-and unexpectedly adventurous woman.

Reporter Eden Huckabee needs a story. And when she discovers Nash’s dirty little secret, she thinks she’s found it. But Eden doesn’t count on Nash turning the tables on her-or that she will fall so deeply for this unbelievably sexy, one-in-a-billion Beaumont.

Review: 

I ended up binge-reading the last two books in Katie Lane’s Overnight Billionaires trilogy over Memorial Day Weekend. Once I got into this book, I knew I was going to read the last one right after it. The plot of A Billionaire After Dark was intriguing. Nash, one of the sexy ‘panty billionaires’ has a dark secret: he likes to hire escorts. Eden is determined to make it as a reporter and write a breaking story about the world of escorts. She ends up pretending to be an escort and meeting Nash in a hotel room. However, their relationship quickly moves passed that escort moment as Nash and Eden discover each other identities and that Eden’s grandparents live next door to Nash and his brother. Side note, I adore Eden’s hysterical, nudist, free-love, ‘special’ brownie making, grandparents. They’re a breath of fresh air to the story by adding a humorous element. Most of the story deals with the serious issues facing Nash, which culminate in his control and his hiring escorts. I did really enjoy watching the relationship between Eden and Nash grow as well as her friendships with Madison and Chloe. However, I had a problem with parts of Nash’s back-story. To avoid spoilers, I’ll just say that I wasn’t a fan of the catalyst from his past which led to his desire for control. That being said, I liked how Eden helped Nash address his issues and move on from past trauma. Eden’s strength of character came from her sheer determination to succeed, whether at her job, at running a marathon, or at having a relationship with Nash. That determination is admirable in a romance novel heroine and added to my enjoyment of the book.
