It’s Release Day!!! The Billionaire Bargain (part 2) is HERE!!!
It was a deal made in the boardroom and sealed in the bedroom.
It all seems so simple: pretend to be his fianceé, his company share prices stabilize, and everyone wins. It’s all just for show.
So why does he keep kissing me? And why do I let him? Grant Devlin is the bane of my existence — not the man of my dreams. But now the lines are getting blurred, and between the kissing and the champagne (and did I mention the kissing?) I’m getting way too comfortable as the future Mrs Devlin.
Something’s got to give, and it better not be my self-control…
First let me thank Lila Monroe for giving me and ARC of The Billionaire Bargain (part 2) in exchange for an honest review. And I am thankful she offered! I was dying to know what happened next!! There was a part in this book that I tweeted Lila to tell her I wanted to kick Grant in the nuts… but Lila said to wait he may need them later.. so I am waiting.. Bwahaha…
***small spoiler alert***
So, this novel starts off right where the other left off. The ice queen -Grant’s Godmother- was her usually pissy self as she ‘congratulated’ the couple. Then ordered Lacey to have lunch with her the next day at noon. As they left the ballroom they went straight to the car where Lacey consumes copious amounts of champagne and is dropped at home. As she drops to her bed she passes out. Waking up to a Bam Bam Bam at her front door. She had slept into the mid morning, her head of course was killing her but she had to stop the noise. (Though I think she changed her mind when she opened it to one pissed off best friend. Kate barged in and was about to blow a gasket.)
Of course the newspapers -all of them- printed it on the front page. Lacey and Grant’s faces were everywhere. What was Kate’s problem? Why had Lacey not told her about the engagement? Once Lacey explained what was going on Kate relaxed a bit. Finally as they talked Lacey remembered the old bat had invited her to lunch. Lacey made it late, but in her defense the bitch had only told her at 15 minutes until it was time to go where to meet her. She was snooty and stuck up but that was usual. Just as the old witch kicked into full gear Grant swooped in and rescued her.
Grant, trying to be a good man gave Lacey his credit card and after a bit of tousling she took it. To ‘make a point’ to him she and Kate went on a shopping spree. HA! And by the end of it she loved it. The next day Grant picked her up and drove her to his family's vineyard for an engagement party. That party turned Lacey off of a few girls as they hated on her in a nice way. Grant again swoops in and takes Lacey off to look over the property. Thanks to her new high heeled shoes she can't walk through the soft dirt. Grant gets.. well he hijacks a golf cart -by picking the lock on it- and they ride off. Their innocent ride turns into a drunk rollercoaster of riding through mud and the river. You get to see a side of Grant Devlin that you usually don’t see.. unless he is with Lacey. (my opinion)
He is laughing and joking around and they actually have a helluva time together… even up to the time where Lacey decides to drunk drive the golf cart right into a tree. Though they managed to escape the carnage before it hit. Grant lead her to a cabin -in the woods.. LOL- and a simple act of getting themselves clean turns into a night of passion. But as they wake up a call comes in and things go from great to awful. Seems a video tape of Grant and two woman from last year has surfaced. They head back into the city and take up space at ‘their’ -his- apartment and try to do some damage control. They manage to get Mr. Jennings's back on track -thanks to Lacey and her honesty, at the moment- and then the godmonster shows up.
“Well, Grant dear, it looks like your inability to walk without tripping and falling into someone’s cunt has come home to roost at last. I’m only impressed that you somehow managed to get your dick stuck in two at the same time.”
((Hoooooly fucking Hell… I about pissed myself at that. Thank God my bff (Emmy of course) works with me ‘cause I had to share that and we both turned red, laughed our asses off and then I went back to reading while I still laughed. That has to be the nastiest -thanks to the ‘C’ word, yet very truthful thing ever said. Kinda gives a whole new meaning to a hole in one… LMAO))
After the ice queen/godmonster’s little rant there she announces the wedding has been moved up… to one week from now. Next weekend they will be husband and wife. Lacey -after talking to Grant- decides to tell her parents what is really going on. About the whole rouse and all. They take it well. Her mother tells Lacey to follow her heart.. and that is what she does.
Now, stay tuned for The Billionaire Bargain part 3… I’m holding onto my knickers and waiting not so very patiently…. so don’t worry you are not alone!!!
