Title: Billionaire With a Twist
Series: Billionaire With a Twist #1
Author: Lila Monroe
Release Date: September 2, 2015
Billionaire Hunter Knox comes straight up – with a side of trouble.
Heir to a bourbon fortune, he’s hired my ad agency to save his family business. It’s my chance to win a star client and prove I can play with the big boys, until my one-night stand comes back to haunt me like the ultimate hangover.
Now I have to think up a killer campaign, and keep from falling into bed with Hunter again. Which is easier said than done when he’s the most handsome, arrogant, downright sexiest man I’ve ever met.
I’m going to need another drink.
We were both whispering. I wasn’t sure why; the house was so big that we might as well have been in another county as far as the staff were concerned. But the darkness and the secrecy and the soft touches somehow made this moment illicit and stolen and not to be spoken aloud.
“I trust you,” I murmured.
There was a pause as Hunter took in my words. “Thank you,” he finally said.
My hand was still on his. As if they had a will of their own, my fingers began to stroke his palm—I blushed, glad that the poor light would hide it, and pulled away under the pretense of selecting a snack.
The tin was small, but it held a solid assortment of sweets, dried jerky, and home-made trail mix. I chose a chocolate in a bright green foil and unwrapped it, the foil rustling like a secret waiting to be told. When I bit down, a sweet cognac liquor burst across my taste buds, and I couldn’t keep from groaning in ecstasy.
“Hey, you try eating this and not expressing your appreciation!” I shot back at him in a whisper, waving the chocolate in his face.
He raised an eyebrow at me, and then he bit right down on the chocolate in my hand, his soft lips just moistening the tips of my fingers.
His rakish grin set my blood on fire as he leaned forward and carefully licked a smudge of chocolate from my thumb.
Calling all doctors, calling all doctors, Allison Bartlett’s heart has just stopped cold.
First, thanks to Give Me Books and Lila Monroe for providing me with a copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review. I am a HUGE fan of Lila’s, hard core love her books oh so much. So to say I was excited about this one.. well lets just say there is not enough words to describe my kind of happy. (grins)
I can say that Ally and Hunter do not let you down when it comes to drama, sex appeal and a growing tension that has them both on the edge of losing themselves in their own lust. Hey, I take that back, they sorta did that.. ha. But when you meet a man at a bar while you are samplin’ all kinds of whiskey, you can get a pass for letting your inhibitions go.
“Do you really want to know what I’d do with the brand? Or would you rather know what I’d do with you?”
Staring into the eyes of a sexy man can get to ya.. to the fact that you wind up on your back, that man between your thighs and a small sample of what was to come. (No pun intended!) But that night didn’t turn out as Ally had hoped. And to her benefit she had absolutely no idea who it was that she had brought back up to her room. Teaches you to ask names before ya let them get into ya pants.
So what do you do when that man turns out to be Hunter Knox. Billionaire and heir to a whiskey empire. Tall. Dark. Sexy.. and oh so tempting. Ally really had to up her ad game now. She had ideas but advertising is a “man’s” world. But thanks to her no filter actions of the whiskey fueled night before Ally had made an impression. One that got her the job. Hunter needs his business to have a new look. He has to save it. Once Ally gets on board and gets into the groove of this ad campaign it’s a lot of work and she has to make this just right. In addition to that she has to “avoid” falling on his face in front of Hunter while they dance around their growing attraction.
And… as usual Lila nailed this one. I can’t wait for the second part. Like I will be on the edge of my seat until it’s in my hands. Haha. Also learned a new line of epicness that I will be using when I need a good “BAM” factor. LOL
I mean this is just.. Win. "Oh, sweet fucking Christ on a cupcake, no!" #LoveIt

Warning: love on the rocks.
Sexy bourbon billionaire Hunter Knox hired me to turn around the failing family business, but I wound up losing him the company he loves. Now I have to make it right - which won't be easy when he's off the grid at a cabin in the woods, drinking himself into a sexy rugged stupor.
