Overview

With endless wealth comes irresistible temptation . . .

It's an undisputed fact that Nash Beaumont is the hottest of the Beaumont brothers. His slow, sensual smile charms every French Kiss employee-and tempts every woman to buy the company's lingerie. But beneath Nash's raw charisma is a dark, kinky side that he struggles to control . . . a side that may be exposed by one lovely-and unexpectedly adventurous woman.

Reporter Eden Huckabee needs a story. And when she discovers Nash's dirty little secret, she thinks she's found it. But Eden doesn't count on Nash turning the tables on her-or that she will fall so deeply for this unbelievably sexy, one-in-a-billion Beaumont.

As one of the "panty billionaires" (introduced in A Billionaire Between the Sheets), Nash Beaumont is dripping with wealth, and he's even hotter than his two devastatingly good-looking brothers. But money and good looks don't alleviate Nash's crippling guilt from a years-old mistake. As punishment, he hires escorts to sexually entice him while refusing to touch them. Enter Eden Huckabee, a newspaper reporter struggling to hang on to her job. Nash's vaunted self-control deserts him when she admits her sexual inexperience. Eden knows exposing Nash's secret could cement her career, but as Nash brings all her erotic fantasies to life, she struggles to write the article. Nash is a typical tormented hero, but beyond his need for kinky penance, he's just a regular, sweet guy, and it's obvious why Eden falls for him. Eden's constant mantra of "I never quit" sounds petulant, but she manages to be likable because of her generous nature. The only jarring note to this erotic romance is the way Eden treats Nash's past, which reeks of victim-shaming. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency. (Apr.)

3.5 stars Nash Beaumont has got it going on! As a drop dead sexy billionaire he has women throwing themselves at him, add in the fact that he and his brothers own the hottest lingerie company also and he is unstoppable. The press paints Nash as a womanizing playboy but that is merely just a show. A secret from his pas has left this handsome man broken and denying himself the love and touch of a woman. Eden Huckabee needs a miracle to save her reporting job. She has dreamed of a job as an investigative reporter for years but all of her stories have left her boss less than thrilled. When she gets an opportunity to do an undercover expose on the life of escorts she throws caution to the wind and steps in head first. Her first and only client left stopped and kicked her out before she was able to get her story so when he requests to see her again she is completely stunned. Nash doesn’t know what it is about the uncoordinated bomb shell that the escort service sent over, but he knows he needs to see her again. The closer these two become the more obvious it is that the story has taken a back seat for Eden and a desire unlike any she has known has began to grown for Nash. Will both of their secrets smother this romance before it even has a chance to fully ignite? I really enjoyed both characters in this book. Eden’s grandparents are an absolute hoot and I just couldn’t get enough of the quirky antics. Even though this book is the second installment in the series it can be read as a stand alone. I know I will personally be going back to read the first book from this series immediately! I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion.

"A Billionaire After Dark" by Katie Lane is book two in the "Overnight Billionaires" series. This can be read as a standalone but I recommend that you read book one "A Billionaire Between the Sheets". This is Nash Beaumont and Eden Huckabee's story. Another winner by Katie Lane! Nash is the best looking of the three Beaumont brothers but he has a side to him that he doesn't want anyone to know about. Eden is trying to make it as a reporter. She discovers Nash's secret hoping this could be her ticket to be considered as a serious reporter. As Eden and Nash get to know each other it becomes more personal than professional. This is where their relationship really heats up. I just love the Beaumont brothers series and couldn't put this one down either. There is humor, twists and turns, and hot steamy scenes. I loved that each brother has his own unique personality. The supporting characters are a great addition to the story too. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Forever (Grand Central Publishing) for an honest review. FYI, contains mature content.

A Billionaire After Dark is the second book in Katie Lane’s Overnight Billionaire’s series. Middle brother Nash meets his match in Eden, the granddaughter of Olivia’s exhibitionist neighbors. The interconnection of the stories makes the series all the more fun. While you can see the misunderstanding between Nash and Eden coming a mile away it is fun to watch them try to avoid the iceberg. Nash is proof still waters run deep. Eden shows that sometimes you have to let go of the thing you think you most want to find out what you really do. I’ve read a lot of good books this year and this one was no exception. Copy received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Nash Beaumont is the charming brother, always smiling, always flirting but what nobody knows is that underneath all that charm is a very sensitive man with potentially destructive secrets on the verge of being exposed by a tenacious reporter. Eden Huckabee is on the hunt for the perfect story to cement her reputation as a hard-news reporter and she thinks she has just the right subject, but as she spends more time with Nash, it becomes more about enjoying Nash's company and less about the story. But will Nash be so forgiving when he discovers that she was lying to him all this time? With his laid-back charm, I didn't expect Nash to be anything more than fun-loving and good with the ladies, but he is a very complicated character and while his dark side and deep secrets were something of a surprise, they also make you just want to fix him. Eden has never met a situation she couldn't handle and her determination is one of her biggest assets. Once she discovers Nash's secrets, she focuses on making him realize that his guilt and self-loathing are misplaced. Very soon, the lines between professional and personal are blurred and Eden is torn between the story that could secure her position with her newspaper and the man she has come to love. I enjoyed Nash and Eden's characters very much. Nash is the damaged and broody hero that brings all those nurturing instincts to life and Eden is perfect for him because she is a fixer and caretaker. Her fixing skills are not limited to Nash, but spread to the women she's become close friends with as a result of her investigation. A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK comes with lots of fun dialogue and hilarious moments, as well as a cast of endearing secondary characters caught in very entertaining situations. It's a lighthearted, sweet and very enjoyable. While it does not affect my enjoyment of this story, my minor quibble is that the many side secondary characters and their antics took some of the focus away from Eden and Nash's romance such that some of their story, especially Nash's past and the issues that made him so damaged got only a cursory touch where they could have benefited from more attention.

What starts out as research for an article ends up changing Eden Huckabee’s life forever. Author Katie Lane will have you laughing, swooning and looking for an air conditioner in her latest release, A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK. Handsome Nash Beaumont has carried a guilt with him for years. It troubles him so much that he believes he doesn’t deserve to love a woman causing him to live his love life in the shadows. A co-owner of the sexy lingerie company French Kiss, Nash has his world turned upside down by a feisty woman with a few secrets of her own. Eden is searching for a hot story to jump start her reporting career When she discovers a dark secret of a Beaumont, she thinks it could showcase her writing skills. But she didn’t image she would be drawn to that Beaumont in such a tantalizing way. The author explores and intertwines the secrets the main characters are hiding. Lane has created well-developed characters with strong traits and alluring personalities. The supporting cast of characters enhances the story. The second installment in the Overnight Billionaires series, A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK can be read on its own. The story moves at a fast pace with twists and turns that will hold you spellbound. The hot, steamy encounters between Nash and Eden will take your breath away and leave you wanting more. The author combines sexy encounters, humor, determination, friendship and family loyalty into a tantalizing tale you’ll enjoy from beginning to end. Narrator Cindy Harden does a beautiful job giving each character their own voice and bringing them to life. She captures the emotional turmoil of the characters perfectly. Her mannerisms add depth to this enticing story. FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK is the second installment in Katie Lane’s adult, contemporary OVERNIGHT BILLIONAIRES romance series focusing on the Beaumont Brothers –Deacon, Nash and Grayson. This is French Kiss Lingerie owner Nash Beaumont, and reporter/ bar tender Eden Huckabee’s story line. A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Nash and Eden) A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK follows reporter Eden Huckabee as she goes undercover as an escort to expose the seedy underworld of prostitution and escorts services in San Francisco. What ensues is a late night encounter with a ‘client’ known only as the ‘Dark Seducer’- a client whose kinky wants and needs find our heroine entering a domain she knows nothing about. When the escort service mistakenly believes that Eden is setting up her own nightly business, not only is Eden threatened, but so too, are the other girls who inadvertently allowed Eden to ‘entertain’ one of their clients. The relationship between Eden and Nash is one that begins as a professional service but Eden’s inexperience throws a bit of a wrench into Nash wants and needs. Nash is a man with a dark and secreted past-a past filled with heartbreak and betrayal that have shaped the man that Nash has become. Eden is a woman on a mission; determined to make it in the world of investigative journalism but finds herself falling in love with the man she is using to uncover the truth. The $ex scenes are seductive and provocative. Eden’s lie of omission about the investigation finds our heroine alone when the truth is finally revealed. The secondary and supporting characters include Nash’s brothers Grayson, and Deacon, as well as Deacon’s wife Olivia, and her step-mother whose own love life is about to implode. PA Kelly, and her fiancée / lawyer Jason return as they prepare for their own upcoming nuptials. And of course, Eden’s hippie grandparents-the Beaumont’s nudist neighbors-make for some entertaining scenarios. The world building continues to focus on the rehabilitation of The French Kiss Lingerie company, and the Beaumont Brothers endeavor to design comfortable but sexy lingerie. The reader is also brought into the family dynamics-the history of the Beaumont siblings, their father Donny John, and the mother who died too young. A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK is an emotional story line about one man’s dark past that has tormented his adult life; about one woman trying to make it big as a journalist in a world of which she is unprepared; and about a couple who fall in love but are destroyed by betrayal and lies. The premise is fateful and dramatic; the characters are charismatic, inspiring and fun; the romance is passionate, emotional and somewhat destructive-lies, even by omission, make for awkward bedfellows when the truth is revealed in black and white.

When ethics and heat collide, will someone get burned in the name of love? I am really becoming a fan of Ms. Lane. Her stories are more than just sensual reads. They are heartfelt expressions of the merry-go-round that is love. Through her writing she examines the euphoria and the pitfalls of this confusing emotion with tons of temptation leading the way. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review and was not disappointed. A Billionaire After Dark is the second book in the Overnight Billionaires series. Eden and Nash have that sexy attraction that can be felt from their first meeting. This story is more sensual than book one but it does deal with misunderstandings, secrets and climatic reveals. Not as emotional as Deacon and Olivia's match but A Billionaire after Dark brings the spice that is fiery and fun.
