Overview

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 love…

As a member of the royal family in a small European country, Griffin Verdi’s presence is requested at the wedding of the century. The scholarly billionaire feels out of his depth in social situations, so a good assistant is required—especially when dealing with royal etiquette.

Unfortunately for Griffin, he’s stuck with Maylee Meriweather, a pretty, charming, and thoroughly unsuitable woman who doesn’t know a thing about high society—but she sure can kiss. Her lack of polish may sink Griffin, because after all, even his money can’t buy class. But through Maylee’s eyes, he’s starting to appreciate the simple things in life—if simple means the most complicated woman he’s ever met.

Maylee is everything Griffin isn’t—and everything he wants—if he can let down his guard and step outside his sheltered world…

The Billionaire Boys Club is breaking all the rules. Don’t miss other novels in the series from InterMix.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
06/15/2014
Griffin Verdi is a member of the royal family of a small European country. Years ago he had moved to the States, and when his cousin is to marry, his presence is requested. There is no way out of it, even when Griffin's much-valued assistant comes down with chicken pox. Desperate for any help he can get, Griffin accepts the use of his friend Hunter's assistant, not realizing the joke is on him. VERDICT The protagonists are complete opposites, yet together they are very funny and engaging. [Xpress Reviews, 5/16/14.]—Phyllis Goodman, Clermont Cty. P.L., OH

    Bad

    If you like books in which the woman is portraited as a bimbo, 'hillibilie' and ridiculed for being 'country', and the supposedly hero is a spoilt brat that sees her and treats her as a 'commoner' (using the exact words from the book here), then you may enjoy this book. I didn't. In fact, I was flabagasted by the sexist portrayal of the female character and by what an a$$hole the guy was. The scenes were unrelatable, unrealistic, and plain absurd. There is nothing salvageable about this story. The worst part is that I really liked this series and this book just ruined it for me.

    Ridiculous

    ## AWFUL. Don't bother with this drivel. The worst of this series by far. How did this even get published? The story line is absolutely ridiculous. Royal wedding, poor little rich boy, country bumpkin, burn healing, archeology digs, secret society, horrific grammer.....the list goes on and on. Griffin is a complete ass in this story and Maylee is portrayed as a white trash redneck complete with a double wide trailer upbringing. The "hero" (and I use that term lightly) is constantly berating Maylee about her grammer, clothing and especially her hair. He tells her he hated her on sight because she is everything he dislikes. He tells her she dresses poorly (called her clothes ugly more times than I can count) and that she talks ignorantly. He's completely ashamed to be seen with her. He despises her frizzy curls until the end when he tells her that he loves her hair. Say what??? How can you fall in love with someone who tells you that they hated you on sight? It doesn't matter that he changes his mind later. This guy needed to take a long walk off a short pier. Jeez, he couldn't have been more insulting. "How can I prove to you that I love you?" By kissing her hound dog. Yeah, that should do it. Again, what? And I was so incredibly disappointed the way the author portrayed Gretchen in this story. She was an amazing heroine in Hunter's story, yet she came off as the foul mouthed girlfriend from hell in this book. I'm not sure if I want to continue this series after this dismal installment.

    I was looking forward to reading this book after "The Wrong Billionaire's Bed". I have to say, I absolutely adore this author but wished for a better story line! I found myself bored with the story because it offered very little imagination. It almost felt as through the author rushed through it. The main character was not well defined and was categorized as a country hick. I also found the love scenes were disappointing as well. Nothing steamy like in her other books. I hope the next book is better!!!

    I have been a big fan of the series and was looking forward to this one. I have to say it was disappointing. First, it was very stereotypical and many of the things contradicted themselves. First, Hunter and Gretchen describe her as not a very good assistant and "the joke was on Griffin" for having to take her. Then she is portrayed as very competent. Also, what is with Gretchen in this book? She is nothing like she was in the Hunter/Gretchen storyline. Least favorite of the series by far.

    Worst of the series

    I really enjoyed the 2nd book of this series, while the 1st and 3rd were fun. This book, however, I couldn't even finish. Jessica Clare is talented at writing hot sex scenes, but she clearly knows very little about billionaires. All the narrative leading up to her sex scenes are sort of fluffy and predictable, but in this book, they were cringe-worthy. Her story between an Arkansas hillbillie and a disgruntled royal from a Monaco-like country is beyond bad. And there is no sex, really. What's the point?

    Such a feel good story. This story of a rich snobby man and a poor kind woman is sweet. They are thrown together for a strange reason but they eventually work. I love this series of the Billionaires Boys Club. The author gives you great characters that you fall in love with. The romance/sex scenes were not too many but were very heart felt. If you are looking for a nice read where it is a stand alone book, has a HEA and leaves you with a smile, then this is your book. Can not wait until Jonathan's story! You get a glimpse of it, at the end of this book.

    Reviewed by Guest Reviewer/Jan & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    I rate this book 5++!  I couldn’t agree any more with the title of the book, it really is “Once Upon A Billionaire”.  Talk about a fairytale!

    Jessica Clare did it again!  I didn’t think I could have another favorite couple with the Billionaire Boys Club!  If you liked Reese and Audrey’s story, you’ll definitely love the royal hero and independent heroine in Once Upon a Billionaire.  You will not be disappointed, that I promise!

    Ten percent into the book, I was hooked!  The book was predictable, but I enjoyed reading it.  It was a given that Griffin Verdi would be a prick being that he is a billionaire and what other way to think of someone who has money.  Then came along Maylee Meriweather who is a southern chic trying to survive in NYC as an assistant.  She has such a good heart who will not let anybody bring her down… Kudos to Maylee for putting up with unnecessary BS and being treated the way Griffin treated her as his assistant.

    Lord Montagne Verdi (Griffin Verdi) falls in love with his temporary assistant, Maylee, but will they ever get their happy ending just like a fairytale would?  When you’re from a royal family, you are suppose to act a certain way, dress a certain way, and definitely date others who are royalty.  Not Lord Montagne Verdi, he had to go through a few obstacles to get the love of his life even if she got hurt along the way.  I believe that you are suppose to fight for who you love.  High five, Griff! Oops, I mean Lord Montagne Verdi!

    Reading about how they both fell in love with each other makes me so giddy!  Just getting to know Griffin Verdi and Maylee Meriweather, you’ll love Maylee’s personality from the beginning.  She’ll definitely make you laugh throughout the book and you’ll fall in love with the both of them. Don’t expect to read hot and steamy scenes as there isn’t much, it’ll eventually get there when the time is right.  I’d love to tell you much much more about their story, but it’s totally worth the read!

    Total miss

    Love the author and most of her books. I have been waiting for this one. It was horrible. The characters are both annoying and sooooo not HOT in any way. I kept reading, waiting for something better. Then it was over. I wanted so much more for Griff. It was so shallow. Hoping Johnathan has a better story.

    OMG!!! I believe this maybe the best book I have read in quite some time! I have followed Kenyon, McNaught, etc and added Jill Myles/Jessica Clare to my list! I sincerely LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! Maylee is a hoot.... I love a book that makes you laugh and this one hit it out of the park! She is so southern that its comical and such a complete opposite of stuck up Griffin that this story WORKS! This was the first 'happily ever after' book that I have read in quite some time that made me feel good.... cannot wait for the next book! Definate must buy!
