Description from the publisher:
The Billionaire’s Club: The wealthiest, most powerful men, not only in Chicago, but in the world. They are used to having whatever they want, whenever they want it.
Luke Preston is the ultimate playboy among his billionaire friends. Every bad girl in Chicago has surrendered in his bed. Some good girls, too. But when he ends up in the hospital after an assassination attempt, his friends suggest he take a long vacation to recoup, regroup and lay off the women until the man is caught. However, when Luke lays eyes on the stunning brunette across the beach, she inspires every dark, erotic thought his mind can conjure.
Peyton Lane has always been serious and responsible and she’s determined to have some fun for once in her life. And that means a deliciously, sexy affair with a stranger while she’s on vacation. So when a blond Adonis named Luke crosses her path at the Cancun resort, she’s determined that he will be the one. But Peyton gets more than she bargained for when Luke introduces her to a passion unlike any she has ever experienced and she discovers that behind that charming smile are secrets and a beautiful, damaged soul.
Red Garnier takes readers deep into a world of incredible emotion and undeniable power and possession.
Also, don’t miss CLAIMED BY HIM, the first unforgettable story in The Billionaire’s Club, available now.
Sometimes I have to laugh at myself. I really don't know why I picked up this book. What would I have in common with billionaires? I am so glad I did! Ms. Garnier has created believable lovable characters. Okay, Luke isn't exactly lovable at the beginning, but by the time you get to the inevitable end, you're rooting for him to win Peyton over.
Luke Preston has been raised in an aura of wealth. As expected, money is not a concern to him, except when the ladies have dollar signs in their eyes… and they all do. He's a playboy, living life for the moment with no care or desires for the future. When he is shot by a jealous man, his friends convince him to vacation in Cancun until the man is arrested. There he meets Peyton Lane, an relatively innocent woman who ignites his blood.
This is hot, hot, HOT! I must read the rest of the Billionaire's Club books. Remember when your mom told you "it's as easy to marry a rich man as it is to love a poor one"? Ms. Garnier has me believing you can get both in one steaming hot package. Excuse me now, while I go sit in front of the fan.
Editing / Grammar: A. I only saw two tiny grammar errors and both were in the prologue. Of course, it's possible I was too distracted by the story to notice any tiny errors later in the book.
