Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she's never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity?

Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants...until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he's never experienced and definitely doesn't like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul. This is an erotic romance and is not intended for YA readers. It contains graphic language, explicit sex and other subjects not appropriate for YA readers.

I bought this series as a bundle on Amazon for almost nothing and I really wasn’t disappointed at all. I recommend you buy the bundle too, because the individual novellas are quite short and almost always end in a cliffhanger. I read this in one sitting and frankly didn’t notice when I jumped onto the next book in the series (but then again I was totally hooked).

The story is not exactly mind-blowing and full of intrigues, but the plot, the characters and last but not least the more-than-hot-and-steamy sexy scenes are absolutely enough to keep the reader fully interested (if not totally hooked) from front to back cover.

I also like the fact that despite the title, this is not all glam and glitz, and the characters are all very much down to earth. You will also find J.S. Scott’s characters very endearing, even if they are made out to be jerks in the beginning. Expect to fall in love with Kara’s selflessness and with Simon’s tender alpha side (yes believe, you can be a tender alpha male!!!)

The writing is in 3rd person with alternating POVs, which enables you to get a glimpse into both worlds and minds. The writing is extremely good, and despite the fact that many books with a cover and a cheesy title like this one hint at some cheap romance novel, J.S. Scott does some really qualitative storywriting.

I totally recommend you give this book and the whole series a go.
