Review

The Bastard Billionaire is the third installment in the Billionaire Bad Boys series. It is the story of the last elusive Crane brother, Eli.
Eli suffered a career ending injury that has made it hard to reacclimate into society. His brothers try to help by getting him to work with them. The only problem is that he makes every personal assistant they send his way packing just as quickly. That is, until the owner of the employment agency decides to step in and take the position herself to save her business. Isabella is the one girl he doesn’t want to send away. But will mixing business with pleasure cause them problems?
I really enjoyed this book! Eli has been a mystery for this entire series so it was nice to finally get his story. The chemistry between Eli and Isabella was flaming hot and it was fun to read.
Rating: 4 stars
Top 5 Favorite Lines From TBB

#5~ Isabella Sawyer’s smart-aleck remark when Eli fires her for the umpteenth time:

“Apologies, Eli, but I’m not changing my shoes.” She came into his office, her hips swaying with each sure step she took toward him.

“Fine. Then you’re fired.”

“Oh, no, not again.”

#4~ Merina, the heroine from The Bastard Billionaire shows up as yet another feisty woman who refuses to bow to Eli’s gruffness.

“I can go out into public, you know,” he grumbled, setting the beer bottle next to his plate—on the table, no coaster, thank you very much. “You guys don’t have to come in here and serve me.”

He was skilled at his new role of miserable bastard, and since everyone expected it now, he was determined to excel.

“Oh but we do, Lord Crane.” Merina smiled demurely as she leaned over and handed him a glass.

#3~ I loved this line after Eli and Isa had sex—his honesty cracked me up!

“I like this.” She touched the corner of his mouth. “I’ve been trying to get you to smile since I started working here.”

“Well now you know how to do it.”

#2~ Bold Isabella knows how to ask for what she wants!

“Is kissing you in my marching orders for tomorrow night?” he asked, his eyes picking up a trace of heat.

She wasn’t going to pass up this opportunity. No way. No how.

“Yes,” she answered. “Need to practice?”

#1~ Eli’s worry that he didn’t have what it took is my favorite line in the book.

He’d done what he needed to be a good soldier.

Now that he wasn’t a soldier, he wasn’t sure what it took to be a good man.
