Overview

She's spent her life avoiding love

Captain Charlotte ,Charlie, O'Brien, a doctor in the United States Navy, returns to her home in North Salem, Massachusetts to visit her family and make an important decision about her future. Mother Nature has other plans when a hurricane strikes, flooding the town and throwing Jake Sherbrooke in Charlie's path. Initially she believes Jake is nothing more than a rich playboy, but quickly, she learns that he is so much more.

The media calls him Prince Charming

Jake Sherbrooke has never been one to follow the path laid out by his parents. That is why he started the Falmouth Foundation, a non-profit disaster relief organization rather than enter politics. When he learns of the destruction in North Salem, he immediately travels there to offer aid and meets Charlie O'Brien. Charlie is unlike any woman he has ever meet and he can not help but be drawn to her.

Soon neither can ignore the incredible chemistry between them. But will his reputation as a billionaire playboy damage their budding romance?

Meet the Author

I wrote my first story with characters similar to those in the Sweet Valley Twins books at the age of 10 on my grandmother's manual typewriter. As I got older my stories and characters became more mature. During my freshman year at UMass Dartmouth, I read my first romance novel and fell in love with the genre. I have been writing contemporary romance ever since.

Today I live with my husband, three beautiful daughters and two dogs in Massachusetts. Whenever I have a free moment you'll find me either reading a romance novel or working on my most current story

110-mile an hour gale force winds set the stage for The Billionaire Playboy. Very unpredictable characters offset this standard story structure. Capt. Charlotte O’Brien is a working class U.S. Naval doctor; Jake Sherbrooke is the nation’s rich, playboy First Son. That’s where the predictability ends. With an ex-girlfriend trying to reconcile, a persistent reporter looking for a story and one misunderstanding after another, can these two mismatched lovebirds can make things work? Although I do not normally read contemporary novels, I found myself greatly enjoying this one. With endearing secondary characters and a subtle romance, this is not to be missed. I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I love this!! I read the whole book in about 4 hours. I couldn't put it down. If you think the first one is good you will really enjoy this one. The story line never had an boring moment. It always keep you guessing. It was the friendship thar turned into a love story. The first book people play a rule inside this book as well. Anyways, give it a chance you won't go wrong :-)

This 2nd book in the series I did not like. Besides being a boring story,the characters were lifeless with stifeling & repetetive dialogue. Skipped many pages. Waste of time & money. (Honest review)

Jake is portrayed as the stereotypical spoiled, rich playboy which leaves Captain Charlotte "Charlie" O'Brien wanting nothing to do with him. Jake, on the other hand, finds her air of confidence and cool indifference intriguing. Jake, determined to put off the image the world has of him and truly help after a Hurricane blows through, digs in and gets his hands dirty, a fact not missed by Charlie. And that's when the fun begins. The Good: This is the first time I have read a book by Christina Tetreault and I have loved every minute of it. These are the kind of characters I love to see ... strong-willed and determined to let nothing get in the way of them getting what they want out of life yet strangely hesitant when it comes to love. Both Jake and Charlie are good people. Flawed perhaps, but good. I liked that the storyline started right at the beginning of the book - no waiting around, hoping for the story to move on here. The rest of the story unfolded gently, a little at a time at just the right pace. The other characters moved in and out of the storyline seamlessly and the drama fit in just as it was meant to be. The Billionaire Playboy is an entirely enjoyable read! The Bad: I didn't like the way that Charlie kept assuming the worst about Jake. I understood why but I didn't like it. Sometimes I wanted to just shake her too, for always trying to protect her heart. Again, Ms. Tetreault made it clear why Charlie felt the way she did but it went on a little long for my taste. Other than that, I have no other complaints. The book was very well done. The Snuggly: The chemistry between Jake and Charlie was exciting. You could almost see the sparks! And it just kept building and building. I loved all of the sensual thoughts that kept running through each of their minds. It only served to turn the heat up, notch by notch. I'm serious! It made my mouth get dry and I kept getting a hitch in my breathing - and no, I don't have Asthma! lol It was just that hot. And all they had barely done was kiss. In public. In broad daylight. Wow! I was going to give this book a 2 in the Snuggly department but I just can't do it. Sitting here, thinking about it all again as I write, all those same feelings are coming back. Yeah, it was that good. Oh and the s.e.x.? Hehehehe....just you wait!;) The Rest: In a nutshell, I loved this book. I love the characters, especially Charlie and Jake and I loved their relationship. I would not hesitate to re-read this book either. The story has enough of a 'suspended in time' feeling that it would not get old. I would say it is for ages 18 and older due to the intimacy and the depth of the feelings and emotions involved but otherwise it is a clean,well-written book. Romance readers will love it!
