Called an eccentric beast by the citizens of Amesport, Maine, handsome, sensual billionaire Grady Sinclair stays isolated in his mansion on a private peninsula. The arrangement suits Grady just fine—until an unassuming woman rings his doorbell, awaking his long dormant passion with her fearlessness. All he wants is to make the fiery blonde his forever. But will he have to become the monster everyone thinks he is to get his Christmas wish?

Emily Ashworth is desperate. The Youth Center has been robbed of all its money, and as the director, she has to find a way to give the town’s needy children the Christmas they deserve. With nowhere else to turn, she ventures to the mansion of a mysterious billionaire to ask for help. Warned to expect a beast, Emily is shocked to find Grady Sinclair a handsome and very sensual man. With steamy kisses under the mistletoe and seductive whispers while hanging the wreath, Emily finds there’s more to Grady than meets the eye. Is this misunderstood billionaire just a lonely soul who needs the gift of love for Christmas?

The Billionaire’s Christmas is a Christmas themed short story and a nice introduction to the Sinclair brothers, and the J.S. Scott’s newest series The Sinclairs.

Grady Sinclair is one of the famous Sinclair heir and has always been considered antisocial and eccentric. The millionaire has chosen to settle on the peninsula on Amesport in Maine, hoping to find peace and quiet – especially over the christmas holidays, which he absolutely hates.

However, he didn’t expect Emily Ashworth to show up at his – the “local beast’s” doorstep asking for a donation for the Amesport youth center. One look at the quirky woman standing in front of him and he is a goner. Hell, he would donate a million dollars only to get her to spend time with him – and he is not afraid to state his requirements!

If you know me and my reading habits, then you will know that I have read all the Billionaire’s Obsession books by J.S. Scott so far. They aren’t over-the-top awesome books that will make you laugh, cry and die from suspense (just like a Colleen Hoover or Alessandra Torre read will), but they are really sweet, nice and relaxing reads with just the right amount of steamy scenes. The Sinclairs series is no exception to that rule, and will even allude to a couple of Billionaire’s Obsession characters.

It was a really nice read, with the exception that it was fairly short and somehow rushed in a couple of parts, especially where Emily and Grady’s relationship is concerned. But this was to be excepted, with the book being a short-story – duh! But I enjoy the fact that J.S. Scott’s stories now all hold a certain unexpected twist to them, which makes the reading experience even nicer!

I am definitely looking forward to the next books in the series, and hoping that the author will come up with something original for each one of the Sinclair brothers! They are all available on Kindle Unlimited, and I believe it’s a great return on investment for your monthly $10.
