understand that a woman could truly love him with a body mangled with such horrific reminders But when Gretchen discovers that Hunter has set everything in motion she struggles with feeling betrayed.I am not sure what it is about men with scars that makes me fall deeper Without the ability to rely solely on the author s ability to clearly state just how good looking or hot the male lead is you are stuck focusing on actions and for me it just hits me in the heart just right And I mean, we are all suckers for the fairy tales right Between the heartache of his transformation and the heated sexual encounters this was a wonderful read and was a great installment in this series of the two, this one is my favorite of the group and I am not sure if the other 3 will surpass this one for me There were some pretty intense sexual situations that were bordering on innocent, but felt a littleerotic than they were because of the situation that Hunter was faced with A great series read for those who like their alpha males ridiculously rich and every bit broken Audrey Reese s story is up next and I have a feeling he will be the bad boy we will love to hate 4.25 StarsI don t find you ugly, Hunter No one who knew you could If anything, I m grateful that you have these scars, because they saved you for me for this moment in time And that s a little selfish of me, isn t it And yet I can t help but feel that wayThis was quite the delicious slow build of sexual tension and trepidation A fiesty, sarcastic and larger than life redhead paired with a scarred, broody loner I ate this book up with a voracious appetite Hunter spot 4.25 StarsI don t find you ugly, Hunter No one who knew you could If anything, I m grateful that you have these scars, because they saved you for me for this moment in

And withmoney than he knows what to do with, he concocts a plan to get her to his sprawling mansion so he can get to know her and possibly strike up a friendship Gretchen is offered a perfect timing, too good to be true job offermove into a mansion, read through hundreds of love letters from the old inhabitants and write a book based on their tale Gretchen jumps at the chance for adventurebut she wasn t expecting to find Hunter Buchanan there A sad and lonely man who hides in the shadows because of his scars Gretchen is beyond intrigued by the man Yes, the scars are jarring at first, but she can easily see past them to the man underneath A man who hides from the world, a man who has never known a woman s touch, a man who doesn t see beauty in himself, but tends to his garden with care and reverence, a man who hides behind cold gruffness to keep people at a distance in order to protect himselfI saw a man who isolates himself because he s worried about making other people uncomfortable I saw a man who doesn t leave his house very often, but makes sure that the staff are well paid I saw a man who works all day tirelessly and tends to roses because he enjoys their beauty I saw man who expects perfection in himself but is okay with others treating him like dirt I see a man who shuts out the world because he s so afraid of getting hurt againBut Gretchen will not be deterredshe ll break him out of his shell, show him that he is desired and teach him how to come out of the shadows The depth of Hunter s loneliness broke my heart He was so broken down by people s reactions to him He was terrified of rejection, yet aching for a connection Watching him open up to Gretchen melted my heart Seeing him stumble through simple conversation, fumble at flirting and tremble with nervousness when it came to his sexual desires made him unbelievably endearing He held on with both hands to the connection he shared with Gretchen, but he dared not hope that it would lastI m a practical man I never thought to have a woman in my life, ever I thought my face would turn off any woman worth having I never thought I would be lucky enough to meet someone like you I have no illusions as to what this means to you, but for me, it is the world I just want you to know that it s not you It s me It s all me, and if I push you away it s because I don t know how to pull you closeThis book was just a great combination of so many elementsemotion, humor, healing, desire and love I loved Gretchen s humor and opennessshe refused to let Hunter hide, but knew when to retreat and went to give him the push that he needed Watching Hunter step out of his self imposed exile and show his vulnerabilities to Gretchen gave me those swoony stomach flutters that I live for However, neither Gretchen nor Hunter were perfect, and mistakes are made along the way, but no matter what it was clear that they belonged together I m a sucker for Beauty and the Beast esque books, and this one hit on all the things that I love Jessica Clare s effortless writing continues to make this an addicting series that I just can t seem to put down The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success at any cost Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy They re just not always as successful when it comes to loveReal estate tycoon Hunter Buchanan has a dark past that s left him scarred and living as a recluse on his family s palatial estate Hunter is ready to give up on love until he spots an enigmatic red haired beauty and comes up with an elaborate scheme to meet her Gretchen Petty is in need of a paycheck and a change So when a job opportunity in an upstate New York mansion pops up she accepts And while she can overlook the oddities of her new job, she can t ignore her new boss s delectable body or his barely leashed temper Hunter s afraid his plan might be unraveling before it s truly begun, but Gretchen is about to show him that life can be full of surprises 1.5 starsGretchen is the sweetest and funniest person ever, cares about Hunter, makes him laugh, makes him happy, is a nice person who loves him for who he

acceptance and understanding of one another The Party All those bouquets D From an early age we are taught to never judge a person based on what they do or don t have physically Easier said then done though, right Yeah After reading this book which is ultimately a spicier remake of a classic tale of finding love and overcoming insecurities that are brought out by the cruel nature of human beings, I have to say that it has served as a good reminder of how often people are quick to judge a person before knowing the demons that may lie beneath If you re looking for an out of the ball park new and exciting book, this may not be the stunner book you re looking for, but I encourage everyone to put this on their reading list, ESPECIALLY if you re in a reading slump and are looking to ease your way back into the world of reading, but I also recommend this book because it is always valuable to learn a lesson in love while readers build or restructure their book army This book emphasizes the unarguable fact that true love is never ugly, something that nobody should forget 3As is my sign off, thanks again to my wonderful readers until next time 3Tierra I am in love with this series I was hesitant to read the first book because it had billionaire in the title and I kind of sworn off Billionaire books But this series is so different from other Billionaire books out there I m so happy that I gave this series a chance.We met Hunter in the first book He lives a pretty solitary life thanks to his scarred face In book 1, when he spies on Gretchen and Bronte, he is immediately taken

Billionaire books But this series is so different from other Billionaire books out there I m so happy that I gave this series a chance.We met Hunter in the first book He lives a pretty solitary life thanks to his scarred face In book 1, when he spies on Gretchen and Bronte, he is immediately taken with Gretchen He hears her say that she doesn t care about a man s looks and he figures that if she truly means that, Gretchen could be the woman for him Hunter finds out everything he can about Gretchen and lures her to his house under false pretenses I know this sounds creepy but it s really not At least, I didn t think it was creepy.Gretchen is intrigued by the writing job that miraculously landed in her lap When she arrives at Hunter s home, she s taken aback by how stark it is His butler is not very cooperative and there aren t a bunch of servants running around When Gretchen finally meets Hunter, it s not under the best circumstances and when she tries to apologize, she keeps making the situation worse Gretchen slowly brings Hunter out of his shell and when she sees his face, she understands why he lives such a solitary life Gretchen is intrigued by Hunter and wants to get to know him better, a lot better.I love the Beauty and the Beast spin of Beauty and the Billionaire When I learned that Hunter was a virgin, I was immediately sold Gotta love those virgin heroes Hunter s virginity was handled realistically He s no stud in the bed, he gets too excited a couple of times and pretty much doesn t know what to do Gretchen s patience with him was sweet and sexy She wasn t concerned about Hunter s looks She wanted to be with him despite his looks.Hunter s wounds are not just on his face Because of his scars he doesn t trust that someone like Gretchen would like him for him Hunter and Gretchen s perfect life unravels when outside forces invade their cozy environment The journey to an HEA is not an easy road for Gretchen and Hunter Hunter has to learn to trust and Gretchen has to forgive Hunter.Beauty and the Billionaire is a great installment in this series I loved Hunter and Gretchen They are a great couple and loved their journey together Can t wait to read the next book If you haven t started reading this series yet, I highly recommend you do Beauty and the beast, phantom of the opera are the inspiration of this book And I also detect an Archer s Voice

You have the scared Hero, Hunter He has scars all over his face, his torso and he s also missing a finger Don t you feel for him Because he s so scared, Hunter is recluse, stays in his mansion and hardly gets out, but he s also very lonely Gretchen is a beauty, but a broke one She s a writer and she s writes books she doesn t like, but she does it for the pay check When a publishing company offers her a job to write a book for lots of money, it s too hard to pass up However, she must write a book where her references are located and it s in a mansion Wait for it At Hunter s mansion Because Hunter set up the publishing company to get to know Gretchen better Review I m starting to really like this series This one just takes the cake on cuteness factor I couldn t get over the storyline and I wanted to gobble ever y page The heart of the story lies within Hunter He s so damaged because of his appearance, as he should because he lets us know how people cringe when they see him I LOVE HUNTER He s so venerable, adorable, awkward and crazy sexy at the same time Since he was scared at a young age, so he doesn t have much experience with women and when he s around Gretchen, he s put off and very timid Gretchen is sassy and has a very cute personality I wouldn t say she s super strong character, but just a fun loving, I want to be her friend kind of character She tries to banter with Hunter to get him to loosen up and it s really sweet to read.Hunter is very attracted to Gretchen and longs for her but because of his appearance he doesn t attempt to get closer to Gretchen, he s perfectly fine just having her around Gretchen is intrigued by Hunter and wants to purse a friendship with him, but Hunter doesn t make it easy for her I really like Beauty and the Billionaire because of how Jessica Clare set up her characters She created a hero that was just so interesting and loving to read I was just immersed This story mirrors a lot like the Beauty and Beast storyline, but it s not an exact plot I love this because Beauty and the Billionaire is just a new modern twist from a classic fairy tale I could have ready this over and over I recommend REVIEW I am about to go on a gush fest right now, as I absolutely adore this book It has been awhile since I have been captivated by a read, and this story did it Hunter Buchannon is a man who was such a pleasant surprise to me, I fell in hard core love with him..I truly did This book is the second in the series The Billionaire Boys Club Even though this is the second book, I do feel it can be read as a stand alone, although Book one was extremely enjoyable as well Beauty and the Billionaire h I am about to go on a gush fest right now, as I absolutely adore this book It has been awhile since I have been captivated by a read, and this story did it Hunter Buchannon is a man who was such a pleasant surprise to me, I fell in hard core love with him..I truly did This book is the second in the series The Billionaire Boys Club Even though this is the second book, I do feel it can be read as a stand alone, although Book one was extremely enjoyable as well Beauty and the Billionaire has the Beauty and the Beast theme that a lot of us readers love I can honestly say that it has been awhile since I have read a book with this theme that I have enjoyed so much This story will be one of my top faves of all time when it comes to the beast theme Let me tell youMr Hunter Buchannon..may look like a monster because of his scarsbut in no way is he one This guy will hold you entrhralled from beginning to end I seriously felt so much for him He was gruff yes, but underneath that hard exterior was a man that had so many soft layers he was amazing He is kind, thoughtful, and feels like he doesn t deserve happiness because of how he looks He hides himself away from the world, as he has been rejected and gawked at so many times that he would just rather be alone He does have his friends that he met in College These are the Billionaires that he has formed a private club with There are six of them, and they have taken a vow to be successful no matter what they have to do They rely on each other to help themselves out, and they are all handsome and filthy rich well, besides Hunter..he s rich but most would say he wasn t handsome Unfortunately, none of them are very lucky in loveWhen Hunter comes across a woman named Gretchen Petty, he is held captivated by her She has the bright red hair, and she is vibrant and unique He overhears her talk about how she wishes she could find a good man, and how looks do not matter to her Even though Hunter knows in his heart that no one would be able to over look him..he decides he needs to formulate a plan to get to know this woman who has caught his attention Gretchen is a ghost writer and Hunter uses her profession to lure her in to his mansion to stay there for a month Gretchen is tempted by the huge amount of money she is offered, even though there are a few very strange conditions about the job.I loved Gretchen She was just such a neat heroine..so full of life,love, and laughter She was perfect for Hunter, and thankfully she had so much determination when it came to the recluse Hunter was innocent and naive in so many ways yes, sex was one of the major ones and she took it upon herself to want to show him how to live As the two of them grow closer, I fell in loveandI can t say enough of how much I enjoyed their dance to falling in love This will go down as one of my favorite love stories of all time Not all readers may be as excited about this story as I was but for meI just can t say enough good about it The sex between this coupleholy smolyit was beyond HOT Hunter may have gotten a late start but when he finally does the deed..this guy is a demon in bed Phew I love his enthusiasum and his intensity There is quite a bit of sex in this installment but I wasn t complaining IT was all around great sex, and very well written No trashiness in the least It was erotic,passionate, and I loved every wordAt one point I was reading a scene them against a wall in the grocery store, and I had to stop as I was sure my face was beat red, and everyone would know that I was reading a dirty scene LMAO That is a true story people Jessica Clare is fast becoming a top fave author of mine I am in love with this series If I have one book recommendation of the year so farit would be this one If Beauty and the Beast is something that you have always enjoyed..then pleasegive this one a chance You will fall in love with Huntertruly you will He is such a pleasant surprise I was sad to have the story end 4 Beautiful Stars Hunter is one of Logan s best friends you remember him from the first book and although he s basically a real state genius he s also a tremendously closed person Mostly because of his scarred aspect, but also because his scars aren t only external He s pretty broken on the inside and that s a place harder to heal One days he see s Gretchen and he becomes fascinated with her, so he offers her a job she can t refuse, only to be close to her Gretchen is a ghost writer and wh 4 Beautiful Stars
