Book Review: Stranded with a Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club #1) by Jessica Clare

Series: Billionaire Boys Club #1
Author: Jessica Clare
Published April 16th 2013 by Penguin Group
Age: Adult
The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success – at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love…

Billionaire Logan Hawkings needs a vacation.
He’s had a rough time after the death of his father and the betrayal of his fiancée. But with a visit to a recent business acquisition—a private island resort in the Bahamas—he has a chance to mend his broken heart.
When a hurricane blows in, a misplaced passport and a stalled elevator bring Logan together with an unusual woman named Bronte. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met—down to earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato.
She also has no clue that he’s rich…

Bronte Dawson, a waitress from the Midwest, is stranded with the hotel’s domineering yet sexy manager Logan. What’s the harm in a little fling when it’s just the two of them, alone in paradise? But after several steamy island nights in Logan’s arms, Bronte’s ready to give her heart—and her body—to the man in charge.

But she soon discovers there’s more to Logan than he’s told her…a billion times more. Now, Bronte’s caught in a whirlwind affair with one of the world’s most powerful men. But can their love endure their differences or will it all just blow over?
Logan is a billionaire alpha male. He's checking his new hotel when a hurricane blows in and traps him with Bronte in the elevator. At first it's just about surviving, but then attraction hits and it's difficult to maintain their hands off while being totally alone at the wrecked hotel.

Bronte was fun, I loved her quotes. She's young and kind of a geek, so you wouldn't think she would be a good match for Logan, the sexy billionaire who is used to get everything he wants.

It's a romance full of twists, it's more difficult than you would thought for an independent woman like Bronte to have a billionaire boyfriend, and for Logan to trust a woman. But it was fun to see them together, and I even loved the secondary characters (I'm talking about a certain redhead).

It started good but at the end it was a little weak (too many things going on), but I really enjoyed Bronte and Logan's romance (I couldn't stop reading), and I'll keep an eye for next book of the series, Beauty and the Billionaire.
