Review

This is another situation where if I read the synopsis, I probably would’ve skipped this book because I’m not a huge fan of single moms. Especially single moms of multiple (kind of annoying) kids. Also reading “He was powerful, arrogant, and infuriatingly gorgeous” about a hero usually is cause to make me skip the book, but I’m glad I didn’t.

Similar to the first book, I appreciated that the heroine didn’t just roll over and take it when the hero was a jerk, she gave it right back and their banter was amazing.

Though I raised my eyebrows at some of the choices Tristan made when it came to Claire’s kids, I also really appreciated the fact that he wasn’t immediately The Perfect New Dad. He was annoyed by the kids (because they were annoying) and they scared him away (with good reason). But he also had a great comeback in that regard.

I also thought that Claire, despite having a spicy attitude with Tristan, needed to use some of that strength when it came to parenting (I still have so many questions when it comes to a lot of her choices – and this is why I don’t love romance novels with kids, because I get a little nit-picky at parenting choices). I think Tristan balanced her out pretty well, if he did overstep boundaries a lot, and I especially loved how things turned out with her oldest son and Tristan.

Review

I’m actually glad I didn’t read the synopsis for this book before picking it up because a surefire way to get me to skip a book is to read the word “billionaire” in the description. I’m so over billionaire romances, however, I really, really liked this one.

It’s my first by TL Swan, but I’m thinking this author can likely pull off billionaire romances for me simply because her heroines aren’t these naive, meek women who bend to the hero’s every whim. Where there could’ve easily been an uncomfortable power imbalance, the fact that her heroines can give as much as they take made me love this book.

Yes, there was a lot of drama and back and forth, but the banter was so on point, I was absolutely living for it every second of the way.

I don’t think I even mentioned what this is about, and the premise is actually really great. The heroine, while on her way to a dream job interview, gets upgraded to first-class and ends up sitting next to a guy she otherwise never would have batted an eye at, yet ends up spending one super-steamy night with him and not seeing him again… for a year. When that year is up, it turns out he owns the company in which she is newly employed.

I found that there were a lot of things I’m usually annoyed with that happened in this book, yet I didn’t mind. The hero is pushy, but the heroine pushes back and I think that was kind of the same throughout.
