Overview

The third installment of a sexy, whirlwind romance about a modern-day heroine writing historical novels based on her romantic misadventures with the Bad Boy Billionaire.

Jane Sparks had it all … almost.

Everyone knew that Jane Sparks had been dumped by her high school sweetheart and fired from her job, which is why she was really looking forward to attending her high school reunion as a successful romance novelist—with her hot billionaire boyfriend as a date. But a violent encounter with her ex-boyfriend changed everything.

Duke Austen was the luckiest guy in town … almost.

Duke Austen is a blue-eyed charmer with a bad-boy reputation and ambitious plans for his future—after two failed startups, this tech entrepreneur is about to celebrate the 20-billion-dollar IPO of his company—but it no longer matters when the woman he loves has been hurt. Stranded in his apartment during a hurricane, without power, they must rebuild their trust … and fall in love all over again.

Just when they have it all figured out, Jane and Duke are forced to decide what matters more: facing her past or celebrating his successful future.

    Warrior's Fantic part five

    Moonpaw ran faster and faster, ignore the slapping branches the stung her cheek and caught her fur. She climbed a high tree and waited.<p> By the time she had caught her breath, she heard paw steps and moments later saw Shadowfoot and Beesting. Beesting looked pi**ed off and Shadowfoot's eye was bandaged. Moonpaw was ready to leap when her tail swished some leaves. <p>Beesting spotted her and she leaped, almost missing the next tree. The two toms raced up and after her, always a mouse lenghth away from her tail. Still she kept running, trying to tuck her tail away.<p> Everything was a blurr. Shadowfoot jumping in front of her and knocking her off the tree. Beesting raceing to the ground after her. Pain, so much pain. Then...nothing.<p> ***<p> Moonpaw blinked open her eyes to see some tom's face. She sat up slowly, tilting her head. The tom stood up and gently pinned her, slipping his paw in her pu**y. Moonpaw did nothing, she couldn't move. It was like she had turned to ice. The tom purred and shoved it in farther. "Open up," he whispered. <p>Moonpaw felt a click somewhere in her mind. She slowly spred her legs, gazeing at his paw in her pu**y. The tom looked up. "My name is Master, by the way." Moonpaw found herself nodding. She spred her legs wider, her eyes still on her pu**y. Master purred and slid his whole leg in. "Good girl. Now just relax and enjoy." <p>Then without warning he began to slip his other leg in her. Moonpaw smiled and closed her eyes, spreding her legs more. Master then shoved his head in, his ears barley sticking out. His legs were widening her walls, and she gasped, moaning softly. Master burrowed even deeper and Moonpaw moaned softly.<p> Moonpaw looked up and saw another tom pad in. He quietly paded toward Master. Moonpaw was about to say something but it was cut off by a moan. The tom smiled and pulled Master out. Master looked up. "I was about half way in. Almost all the way, she's ready." The other tom nodded and paded away. "Make sure she'll have lots of kits."<p> to be continued next result

    I love Maya even more! To think I was madly fangirling before! F

    I love Maya even more! To think I was madly fangirling before! For this book, you don’t even need to have read the other ones. So run to the bookstore, one-click, whatever. You read the blurb, well, it’s a thousand times what it describes. The dictionary needs a new word: Rodalesque, because other superlatives are just not enough anymore for Maya. Just read The Bad Boy Billionaire: What a Girl Wants; you will be happy you did! Maya is a rock star!

    The third engrossing novella in the entertaining and very enjoya

    The third engrossing novella in the entertaining and very enjoyable Bad Boys series by Maya Rodale, a fresh and sassy voice in romance.
    This has been a fabulous and fun series. The characters, the flow of dialogue and narrative, and just the turn-the-pages anticipation have been truly enjoyable. The Bad Boy Billionaire series runs concurrently with Rodale’s wonderful historical Wallflowers series. Different time periods but women and men still interact in the same ways, with the same devastating consequences. This book follows the plot and action of What a Wallflower Wants, Prudence’s story.
    Jane Sparks, a librarian, has lost her fake engagement ring and, with it, her streak of good luck. After two successful historical romances based on her actual life, she has writer’s block. Her favorite sweater has gone missing at the dry cleaners, her train line is under construction, and she has a noisy neighbor. But Duke Austen, her hot billionaire boyfriend, is having phenomenal luck: his company is on the upswing.
    Jane’s ex boyfriend, Sam, is going through hard times. I thought it was funny when Jane picks out an outfit that says “FRIEND ZONE”—Rodale’s fun trademark capital letters for dramatic emphasis—when she agrees to meet Sam for a quick drink. He was the man of her dreams who broke her heart and, to her surprise (and relief) she finds she no longer has warm feelings toward him.
    “I could be at home, writing. Or I could be at Duke’s, having orgasms.” (p18)
    Sam takes advantage of Jane’s kindness and, in a terrifying scene, tries to rape her. Jane is frightened and confused and feels bad he is going through a rough time in his life. But he dumped her, after all.
    “Tonight I realized I didn’t want Sam to touch me anymore.” (p19)
    When Sam disparages Jane’s romance novel success, Rodale inserts her usual enlightening defense and justification of romance novels. 
    “‘Sam, all kinds of women read romance novels. Red states, blue states. Happily married, or single. Young, old. Lots of education. Or a little.” (p20)
    Hurricane Geoffrey triggers a massive power outage in New York City and mirrors everyday life in Regency England. Duke misses the Internet and Jane misses her iPhone. She has to write her story in long hand while Duke reads on his Kindle until its power dies. There are no subways, no running water to Duke’s high apartment floor, and no electricity.
    But they’re also enjoying the closeness that Jane’s terrifying experience, candlelight, and deep conversation can bring. Their little note exchange is adorable and sweet and I love that Duke doesn’t press Jane for sexual intimacy after her traumatic experience. In fact, one night, all he does is kiss and hold her. Duke is very kind and thoughtful. He gets her a hotel room so she can enjoy a hot shower and even includes a room for her best friend, the hard-as-nails Roxanna. Jane realizes that he truly loves her and would never, ever hurt her.
    “But Duke…he’d been down, he’d been up and he’d been walking the razor’s edge of complete disaster or unfathomable success. And he did it all with a bone deep confidence and certainty in himself. He didn’t need to bring anyone down to raise himself up. That is what made him so damn sexy.” (p41)
    I love the Jane Austen references, especially when they fly right over Duke’s head. And yet he’s willing to let Jane tell him about them. Jane calls him her “rogue.”
    “Like a charming, devil-may-care, up-to-no-good-and-he-liked-it rogue.” (p79)
    The ending is fantastic; very romantic and sexy. Especially after her small-minded, small town reunion. Jane realizes she’s so much more than where she grew up. And we learn the mystery of the missing fake engagement ring.
    There is one little blooper. In chapter five, we learn that Duke has no candles in his apartment yet, in chapter six, still in his apartment, they are surrounded by them. Even if they had bought them, they had used up all their cash at the bar and, without electricity, they could not use an ATM. But no matter, a minor detail. And though there were several typos in my version, they didn’t detract too much from the story. It’s a nuisance sometimes to be the grammar police. I just itch to let the author know so they can be fixed.
    This novella, the last in the series (sob!), is much darker in tone than the first two, bringing out Jane’s vulnerabilities and Duke’s maturity. It’s thoughtful, sexy, and smart. I loved it. Highly recommended!

    Fun and modern.

    Nice finale. Haven't read the Regency tie-in books but will probably give them a try.
