This story started with a LOT of promise but it lost some of its charm along the way. I think my major problem was with Michaela. Although it was attempted for her to be portrayed ad independent and strong, for me she was just too stubborn and flaky. Now don't get me wrong i like my heroines to be strong-minded, but Michaela was causing me whiplash with her indecisiveness. One moment yes, another moment no. It was annoying to say the least. It completely messed up my attempt to connect and relate to her.
Other than that, I thought that the story was interesting and unique. I loved Dylan and his determination. I enjoyed how he pursued Michaela and even though I was annoyed by her thought process, I did believe that she was ideal for him. They complemented each other - both were driven, stubborn and independent.
All in all, a good romantic story even if at times it could picked up its pace a notch or two.
Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire ~ 4 stars
Now this story I enjoyed. I liked the different elements that were added to the romance between Olivia and Luc. I enjoyed the little bit of mystery that was added to it. Those made for a fantastic read along with the explosive chemistry between the main characters.
Luc was awesome. Intriguing and complex with secrets and a hard edge to him, I enjoyed thoroughly. I also liked Olivia and thought that she was right for him. She gave as good as she got but after all was said and done her sweet and considerate side shined through.
Although I attempted to guess how it would all play out, I enjoyed the feeling of not knowing if I was right or not. But most of all I enjoyed how the connection between Luc and Olivia was developed throughout the story and how when they came together their chemistry sizzled.
All in all, a hot little read with some intriguing moments and a couple of interesting characters that grew closer as the story progressed.
The Spanish Billionaire's Hired Bride ~ 5 stars
What can I tell you? I love a stubborn man. Especially if he has some Spanish in him. Lucky for me I got Ricardo and he was paired up with a strong-willed, independent heroine in Helen. I loved their interactions and their chemistry was off the charts HOT.
This was one story that grabbed me from the beginning and wouldn't let go. So much so that I wouldn't mind getting to know them more and seeing where their relationship leads them.
All in all, a wonderful story with a handsome and sexy-as-sin Spaniard and a woman who matched him toe for toe. Loved it!

Amusing stories to keep you entertained. The first story is delightful with Dylan taking a much needed vacation from being CEO of his family business to go be a dancer on a cruise. He is YUMMY and a hunk... only problem is other dancers do not believe he is straight. He takes matter in hand and pursues the cruise director. To his surprise, feeling develop and grow! Their love affair is fraught with obstacles, but the heat is so hot you may want to call the fire department.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

All 3 stories in this bundle are unique in their own way. I liked the stories and would recommend them to anyone who likes billionaire love stories. My favorite of the three was The Boss and Her Billionaire by Michele de Winton. They were all sexy and good, but the aforementioned story was not about your typical pushy billionaire forcing the woman's hand. It was different and I appreciated that. Overall, they were all good.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was excited when I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review because it contained Michele de Winton's 1st book in the Love On Deck series and I had previously read the 2nd book. Overall it was a good bundle of light reads. Although I liked them all, I think my favorite was The Spanish Billionaire's Hired Bride. I've read Nina and Michele's books before and loved them, and it was nice to find a new to to author in Rachel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Boss and her Billionaire, had a nice change of pace. I really liked the aspect of Michaela succeeding in a male dominated environment. I thought Dylan's mid career change was an interesting choice. I enjoyed the story line and the pacing. The only thing that I wish had been different was the way it wrapped up. I absolutely hated Dylan when they were in Sydney before his epiphany. Their conversation at dinner made me annoyed with both characters. Dylan's comments were rude, disrespectful, and likened her to a hooker (albeit he was clueless to how it sounded) and I was disappointed that Michaela didn't say anything. Everything was cleared up with not enough groveling in my opinion. Although I liked the book I recommend that people read the 2nd book in the series. I think it's even better.
blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire, is the 2nd book of Nina's that I've read. I loved Losing Control and had seen this book before and couldn't wait for it. Luc has been looking for Lia's father in order to seek revenge for all the things her dad did to him. She's also looking for her no good dad but has no idea about the things he's done to Luc. Luc decides to use Lia to find him by blackmailing her with photos. During their search they bicker, fight, and fall for each other. But what's going to happen when the truth comes out? Will there be anything left for them to build on?
The Spanish Billionaire's Hired Bride, my fav of the bundle. I loved how they met. Best meeting ever so I'm not going to spoil it but let's just say it was painful for Ricardo. He sees Helen as someone who's focused on money. He's nearing 30 and if not married by his bday he'll lose a bet. He figures as a money hungry woman she'll agree to marry him for money. She's initially offended by his offer and tells him so but after talking to her family she sees how much she needs that money. As they get to know one another and spent time together as a married couple they really begin to care for one another but they don't know how the other feels, and is it enough to let go of their preconceived notions or the vengeful woman out to get both of them? I really liked this book and look forward to reading Rachel's other work.
