Overview

First book in the Billionaire Online Dating Series

Skeptical billionaire takes a risk on a friend's online dating service and finds the cowgirl of his dreams, now he only has to convince her that he's her perfect match

Billionaire Online Dating Service. It's new, it's exclusive. Let's test it!

How did Billionaire Cooper Johnson allow himself to get roped into testing a brand new online dating system? After making a fortune day-trading stocks, he's on track to accomplish all his life goals, except marriage and a family. As a billionaire, meeting the right woman is a minefield of gold-diggers, false eyelashes and surgically enhanced women. The Billionaire Online Dating Service matches hand-picked, screened clientele with the mates of their dreams. Or so the package was sold. As a favor for a friend, Cooper finds himself on the Rockin' J Ranch confronting his "date's" four tough looking cowboy brothers. When their girl-next-door, long, tall, gorgeous sister steps out on the porch, Cooper doesn't know whether to run to her or away. One date, that's all he's signed up for and he can be out of there. Or will one date be enough?

She had everything—a fiancé, a great future, love...until she lost it all

Still mourning the loss of her fiancé who died two years ago, Emma Jacobs can't imagine loving anyone else. But her four brothers won't quit pushing men her way. In a desperate attempt to throw her brothers off her back, she engages her friend's dating service to find a pasty-faced businessman sure to fail her brothers' husband criteria. Maybe then her brothers will finally back off and leave her alone.

Best laid plans tend to blow up in Emma's face. When her date turns out to be everything her brothers are looking for in a husband for Emma, she's got a bigger problem than she started out with. She lets Cooper in on her plan to have him date and dump her. Surprisingly he goes along with it. But Cooper has plans of his own. And they don't involve dumping the determined, sexy, independent cowgirl.

Note: Make a stop at Myla Jackson's Ugly Stick Saloon in this story and say hi to old friends.

    Not good

    ## Not good. Dead fiance is in it just as much as the hero. And the heroine was very unlikeable. Skip it.

    A hero who can't find a genuine woman who isn't solely intereste

    A hero who can't find a genuine woman who isn't solely interested in his money. A heroine who lost the soldier she loved and is afraid to love again. They've both been very reluctantly computer matched by a start-up dating service. He agreed to sign up as a favor to a friend who'd invested in the start-up company. She agreed to get her well-intentioned brother's off her back. They could be perfect together if he wasn't so jaded and she'd just let go of the past. This is an enjoyable read that was hard to put down. I hope the author follows up with stories about the heroine's over-protective brothers, the hero's friends, and the matchmaker, too, as there's lots of potential for an on-going series.

    High quality Elle James at her best! Wow! Just wow! The same

    High quality Elle James at her best!
    Wow! Just wow! The same high quality I always expect from an Elle James novel. Great relatable characters, facing real life situations, staying strong, upholding integrity, living lives full of challenges.

    No one actually looks for long-term relationships online, do they? But when their friends ask them to test a new online dating service, Cooper and Emma agree to give it a try, each for their own reasons. But only for a couple of dates. After that, they'll call it quits ... or will they?

    I just wish the story was longer. I wasn't ready to leave the characters and their world even though the story was complete and the threads tied up. Elle James brings her story world alive so the reader is there with the characters living their experiences, their emotions, with all of one's senses actively engaged, whether cool water in the pond, sizzlin' crispy bacon, stringing fence wire between posts, or admiring bright stars overhead on a clear dark night.

    I don't see any need to summarize the plot again. It is adequately described by the other reviews here.

    Though self-published, the story is not lacking in any way. It meets the same high standards, the same high quality as other Elle James novels. Elle James at her best. Dedicated romance readers will not be disappointed with the Billionaire Husband Test.


    I'm anxious for the next installment in this series

    How do self-made billionaires find true love?

    How do self-made billionaires find true love? They go through Leslie’s Billionaire Online Dating Club. Using personality, not financials, to find matches in couples, Leslie has staked everything she has on her business, and she is willing to use her best friends’ data to test the system.

    Emma Jacobs asked Leslie to set her up on a date with a desk jockey to get her brothers off her back about dating. She is just not ready for a hook up. Who want to move on after already finding their true love? It has been two years since he died in Afghanistan and she is still in mourning. What she was not prepared for was the instant way her body reacted to Cooper Johnson. Stock traders should NOT be able to haul hay.

    Cooper Johnson enjoys his money through his 3,000-acre ranch. While finding someone to settle down with would be nice, it brings forth images of gold-diggers and paparazzi. He just wants the girl next door and finds it in Emma. It’s too bad she just wants a fake boyfriend and is in love with a dead man. Except he decides she is worth the risk and goes after the challenge.

    This romance is special because the rich man is going after the woman who doesn’t want him. Sensual and humorous in nature, it is appropriate for most romance readers. Ella James provides the audience a roller coaster of emotional scenes that evoke empathy with Emma and Cooper. Character development is deep enough to want each of them to win, but not so immersive that the story is bogged down with useless information. While only 100 pages, the book is worth the time to read, especially since it is set up for additional billionaire bachelors to come.

    Can true love happen twice in a lifetime? Can a stock trader be lucky enough to find a woman who wants him without knowing how much his portfolio is worth? Do cats have nine lives? Take the BILLIONAIRE HUSBAND TEST to see how Emma and Cooper score on the test that affects the rest of their lives.
