#Review: The Billionaire & The Barfly – Adrianne James
From the moment she began working for her boss, Jenna, Aubrey Vincent has done her best to do right by her. She loves what she does, and is determined in climbing the corporate ladder in the hopes that she’ll achieve something greater. In her mind, it’ll allow her to finally sever ties with having to live in her parent’s attic. Mind you, they’ve helped her immensely whenever possible. The lure of finally being on her own, however, is something she’ll do her best to make possible.
Aubrey’s life takes an unexpected turn when a one-night stand pops up in her town. From the moment she set eyes on Henry that fateful night, she’d found herself attracted to him. Granted, she never thought she’d ever see him again. To have him set foot in the very town she lives in is mind-boggling. So much so, that she’ll do her best not to cross paths with him.
Unfortunately, that’s a luxury she won’t be able to fulfill. When it becomes apparent that Henry is none other than the CEO of Maximus Gaming, Aubrey soon realizes just how much the tables have turned. The fact that Henry is now determined in changing life as she knows it isn’t lost on her. In a sense, it’s endearing. She also can’t deny what she feels for him. If she can reconcile her feelings and what having Henry on the company’s side would mean, she might be able to truly set her goals into motion. The question is, how can she do that when so many obstacles litter the path she’s intent on walking upon?
A heart-warming romance, Adrianne throws us in the thick of things as Aubrey does her best to have a good time while out on a business trip. Granted, Aubrey isn’t the type of character you’re going to like off the bat, but she sort of grows on you. She’s a little down on her luck and living with her parents. The girl sure knows what she wants, however. I absolutely enjoyed this refreshing story where the character’s banter and personalities shine the more you read along. The comedic values found throughout the book won’t disappoint. A truly enjoyable read, this is a book you’re going to want to pick up soon.
Release Date: March 29, 2014
Henry Maximus is a super-hero-loving geek and proud of it. He’s also a genius when it comes to business. It’s how he earned the title of CEO of Maximus Gaming … not to mention the billions of dollars in his bank account. Henry’s tried living the life of a bachelor, but a different girl every night has left him wanting more. Needing more.
Aubrey Vincent is in love with her job. She’ll love it even more if she lands the promotion that gets her out of her parent’s attic. She loves it so much that she has no time for relationships, not that she was ever very good at them to begin with. Aubrey is perfectly happy with the random, nameless men she picks up at the bar.
After a brief encounter with Aubrey on a business trip, Henry packs his bags and moves back to the small town where he grew up. Aubrey’s town. Aubrey attempts to find her way into Henry’s bed, while he tries everything to get into her heart. Will Henry’s plan to break down the walls Aubrey has built around her heart work or will his unbelievable million dollar offer scare her away?
