Overview


Burned by love and grieving over his brother’s death, sexy billionaire CEO Carter Anderson wants nothing more than to protect his family. So when beautiful and unassuming physical therapist Gwen Radley shows up at the funeral, pregnant with his brother’s baby, Carter’s certain she wants an interest in the Anderson empire—and both his suspicion and attraction grow when circumstances force Gwen to move into his family’s mansion.

An orphan, Gwen’s never wanted anything more than a family, and she finds in the Andersons a place she and her baby might belong. When Gwen’s therapy expertise leads to long hours of intense, late-night collaboration on a lucrative project, the attraction between her and Carter leads to a night of white-hot passion. But Carter’s distrust remains, leading them both to wonder if he will ever embrace his brother’s baby—or the love that’s blooming between them.

    Outstanding read

    ## Outstanding. I loved this story. It was filled with fun, compassion, heartbreak and happiness. The hero Carter was the obligatory jerk but redeemed himself in the end. And what a fabulous ending. After such a betrayal, some definite groveling was in order and yes we actually get it. NO INSTANT FORGIVENESS, yay! What really made this book special was the heroine. Thank you to the author for creating such an awesome character. She was absolutely amazing. Kind, caring, strong, smart and so very fun-loving. My favorite kind of heroine. I will read this again for sure.

    This was such a fun read. Not that it was a humorous book, but rather it was a classic romance theme that I love to read.
     Gwen is a PT at Walter Reed and has a "before I ship out" fling with Ben Anderson resulting in a baby. When Ben is killed overseas,
    Gwen goes to his funeral and meets his brother Carter. Cue the troubled alpha male who distrusts women because of a bad experience in the past. Gwen is a former foster child trying to keep her head above water, in other words the perfect gold digger situation according to Carter. After a series of disasters, Gwen ends up living in the family manse and helping the patriarch recover from a stroke in her spare time.
    I know it sounds familiar, but this story was perfect. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Sure enough, Carter behaves like a cad, tries to make amends and then screws up royally only to realize he can't live without Gwen in his life. Gwen makes him suffer before she gives in but it all works! Yes, we have read this before but it totally works in this book. I enjoyed every page, every kiss, every fight, the whole shebang!
    Sometimes you just have to read a romance book for the fun of it and this is the perfect one for that.

    Carter - you are a jerk. You remain a jerk for a very, VERY long

    Carter - you are a jerk. You remain a jerk for a very, VERY long time. But the grovel almost makes up for it. Almost.




    Gwen - you deserve better than a judgmental jerk like Carter. 




    Now that I've got that off my chest, I can move on to the review. I enjoyed this book for the most part, but I swear, Carter moodswung/condemned Gwen the way a woman pregnant with twins moodswings. And I know how bad that is, having done it. But it was Gwen who really made me fall in love with this book. Her physical therapy work was incredible, between helping design a phenomenal shoe to help recovering military amputees walk better to getting Mr. Anderson Senior to open back up to the world.




    Some of the romance was lovely in this book, as Carter began to open up a bit to Gwen. Gwen really wants the family that the baby she's carrying will give her. She doesn't want any money, just wanted the child to know its father's family. She's a genuinely good woman who deserved a genuinely good man. 




    I enjoyed watching Mr. Anderson's slow progression from being entirely bound by his stroke to much more mobility and freedom, all because Gwen can't not help someone when she's so close to them. I felt Ms. Nolan did a remarkable job giving life to the Anderson family altogether. 
    On a side note - I'd love to see the corporate attorney get his own story. He's awesome and while Carter's jerkiness tinges on almost unforgiveable, the lawyer's reaction to Gwen made sense. I'd be suspicious of her too if I weren't living with her, seeing every single thing she does to improve life around her.




    So - this had the potential for five gargoyles, but because of my reaction to the hero, I can't justify giving it more than 4. Sadly. I can't wait to read more by Ms. Nolan though!

    "If only he could lean toward her and breathe in that peach

    "If only he could lean toward her and breathe in that peach-soaked scent, then turn his face to kiss her luscious pink lips." Loved it! This is my first time reading Lea Nolan and I will definitely be looking for more of her books! I have to admit, I felt kind of done with the "Billionaire" theme before I picked this book up, but this is NOTHING like the Billionaire books that have saturated the bookshelves of late. It's a great story! I want to say it's sweet, but that probably isn't an accurate description either. The characters are relatable and you really get to know them! I wouldn't mind seeing a follow book about Carter's friend Devon! (And maybe Emerson, too?) Great read!

    This was such a beautiful story. Filled with emotion and a warring chemistry between Gwen and Carter; both very strong characters with a strong attraction to each other.

    Lea Nolan give us a VERY well written love story. Written in a way that I felt their pain, their attraction, frustration and joy. I even cried at a pivotal moment in the story. Carter will frustrate you one moment, and make you fall in love with him the next. Gwen will make you proud. Each with a past that left a few scars, they see each other in a way they don't see themselves.

    A quick read; but in no way is anything left out of this great read.

    3.75 stars: HIS BILLION DOLLAR BABY is the latest contemporary,

    3.75 stars: HIS BILLION DOLLAR BABY is the latest contemporary, adult, romance storyline from author Lea Nolan. The premise focuses on physical therapist Gwen Radley-four months into an unexpected and unplanned pregnancy- and the father has been killed in Kandahar Province without ever knowing Gwen was with child. As she attempts to slip (undetected) an sonogram image -into the casket -of the baby they have created, Carter Anderson (the deceased’s brother) will overhear Gwen tell his mother that she is carrying her dead son’s child. What ensues is a calamity of accidents that will find Gwen living with the Anderson family and at the top of Carter Anderson’s most mistrusted people.
    The storyline follows the building relationship between Gwen and the Anderson family, as well as, the relationship between Gwen and Carter.  Gwen is reluctantly welcomed into the billionaire family (and their successful sporting goods business) where the patriarch is need of physical care and the remaining son is in need of a paternity test to prove that Gwen is carrying the family heir.
    The relationship between our leading couple is fraught with suspicion, distrust, skepticism, and supposition. Carter Anderson believes Gwen is after the Anderson billions-that she is a gold digger and out for only one thing- and Gwen is trying to survive in a world where she does not belong. As Carter calculates all of the ways to protect the family business from Gwen, Gwen knows that to keep her sanity and her self respect, her only option it leave and never look back.
    Lea Nolan pulls the reader into an intensely emotional, passionate (but predictable) storyline where tears will fall for a woman who’s caught between two worlds-the uber rich and everyone else. We watch as Gwen slowly becomes part of a family only to be pushed aside by Carter when he believes that everything about her is a lie. Gwen is an honorable, beautiful and realistic woman who has found herself the target of a man whose past is mired in betrayal and mistrust.
    HIS BILLION DOLLAR BABY is a story of heartbreak and pain for a woman who wanted something better for her child than the life of which she knew. The pain of her own childhood has Gwen stepping back from what could have been and into a life where Carter Anderson will no longer be in control.

    Once I started this book I didn't want to stop. A great story of two strong people who've been scarred by life. All they needed was someone to love them. Carter Anderson is one sexy bullheaded alpha, but he's met his match in Gwen who won't let his bitterness and distrust diminish her take charge attitude. I'm not usually big on "baby" stories, but the pregnancy in this book became a beautiful link to Carter's brother. And the supporting characters are wonderful. Hope to read Devon's story next

    HIS MILLION DOLLAR BABY by Lea Nolan ¿ I love this book!!! Immed

    HIS MILLION DOLLAR BABY by Lea Nolan – I love this book!!! Immediately Lea Nolan begins by giving the reader a heart
     wrenching reflection mixed with the present moment in the life of Gwen Radley, a physical therapist who has a life altering secret.
     Gwen is stubborn and honest, has auburn hair, bright green eyes and freckles across her nose, shapely curves and Irish spirit.
     Add drop dead gorgeous Carter Anderson, who Gwen thought reminded her of the Greek gods she had read about, a regal mother,
     a father who had suffered a stroke and the revelation and acceptance of Gwen’s surprise, and you have a total package love
     story. Observing how Carter and Gwen get to know one another and her acceptance into the family is a funny, emotional, feel
     good, frustrating but touching and perfect romance.
     This book is a definite keeper and read over again book.  from CWLCL

    This book has a lot going for it--the premise has promise, the characters have some depth, and did I mention the cover? Such lovely abs. :) The idea of falling for the brother of your deceased baby daddy--especially when your relationship with that brother starts off so totally wrong-footedly and you seem to have nothing whatsoever in common with him--soooo much potential for delicious drama! (I was actually glad that Gwen and Ben didn't have a closer relationship, because that that much drama would have put it over the top. Pregnancy hormones + survivor guilt + falling for someone new and moving on so soon after guilt = total overload. I think Ms. Nolan made the right choice here having her pregnancy be the result of a single uncharacteristic night for the two of them.)




    Gwen is a really strong character. She is a self-made woman, rising above her foster system background and making a solid life for herself. I loved how she is so devoted to helping others and that she really knows her job (physical therapy, with an emphasis on military wounded) well. She is determined to raise her baby herself, yet still manages to accept help when she really needs it with grace. I liked her a lot.




    Carter is a bit tougher to love at times--a disastrous first marriage has left him bitter, and he tends to see all women as variations of his ex. He is also naturally suspicious of anyone who might be out to take advantage of his family's wealth and good nature. His attitude is understandable, up to a point--but once he let his guard down and opened himself up to a real relationship with Gwen, it felt as if he was much too quick to do another 180 degree turn and once again see only self-serving motives behind all of her actions. In fact, the entire argument on which their relationship climax hinged had a forced feel to it. I found myself going back and re-reading their conversation more than once because their responses to each other's comments just didn't feel genuine--their reactions seemed so out of whack with what had actually been done and said that reading that scene gave me a "wait--what the heck just happened here?" feeling afterwards.




    I'll give Carter this, though--he does grovel with style. Tiny baby shoes will melt this particular heart every time. :)




    Overall, this novel made my two-hour wait at BWI a lot more enjoyable than it otherwise might have been. I'll definitely be interested to see more from this author in the future as she continues to develop her contemporary romance-writing muscles.

    LOVED IT!

    This book was so great. The story line drew me in from the very begining. The chemistry between Carter & Gwen is off the charts but it takes them awhile to realize it. The progress that Gwen makes with Rocky is so heartwarming. Several times while reading this I cried like a baby it was very overwhelming. I recommend this book to everyone.

    Lea Nolan has created quite the situation for the lead character

    Lea Nolan has created quite the situation for the lead characters in His Billion Dollar Baby. This story immediately starts with an overall sad tone. Gwen goes to the funeral of her baby's daddy with a specific purpose. She hadn't known Ben very well before he left for another tour of duty. She ends up meeting his older brother Carter at the funeral, and the plot gets pretty tense from there. Carter immediately doesn't trust Gwen at all. He thinks she's a gold digger when she's completely the opposite.

    There's a reason why Carter Anderson has a huge distrust in women. If Gwen's baby is truly an Anderson heir, he believes it would pretty much ruin all his plans. I adored Gwen! She's smart, witty, hardworking, and headstrong. She makes the most of what she has despite being handed the short end of the stick in life.

    I liked that the plot surprised me in such a pleasant way. This wasn't a story about a single mom-to-be asking for a handout. His Billion Dollar Baby turned out to be a feel-good, slow-building, sweet romance. I have a huge soft spot for stories like these! The secondary characters, especially Carter's parents, were just lively and well-written. I loved that Gwen's skills as a physical therapist was prominently used, too. This was my first time reading anything from Lea Nolan, and it won't be my last, especially if she continues with Devon's story...hint, hint!  *A copy of this book was gifted to me for an honest review.
