Delectable passion! With book three in her Blackout Billionaires series, Naima Simone continues to delight us with swoon worthy characters in BLAME IT ON THE BILLIONAIRE. Nadia is a kind-hearted person who put a good bit of her life on hold to raise her little brother. She's had a crush on her boss Grayson, but never thought she had a chance ... until a blackout unleashes passion she's never experienced before. Grayson is a shrewd businessman who has felt less-than most of his life, but he's not willing to let his mother meddle in his life for one minute more. If he has to coerce Nadia into being his fake fiance for awhile, so be it! I recommend this book and this entire series to anyone who enjoys a fast paced story filled with passion, lots of heart and happily ever afters.

3.75 stars--BLAME IT ON THE BILLIONAIRE is the third instalment in Naima Simone’s contemporary, adult BLACKOUT BILLIONAIRES erotic, romance series. This is billionaire businessman Grayson Chandler, and executive assistant Nadia Jordan’s story line. BLAME IT ON THE BILLIONAIRE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty.

A recent black-tie affair found Nadia Jordan called into duty when her boss at KayCee Corporation demanded she bring him a change of clothes but Nadia never expected to run into the man who has starred in all of her fantasies, the man with whom Nadia would fall in love. A city-wide blackout found Nadia in the arms of Grayson Chandler, but a quick exit meant Grayson had no idea about the woman with whom he spent a one-night stand. Discovering Nadia worked for his company, KayCee Corporation, Grayson struggles with Nadia’s true intent the evening before. What ensues is the quick building but fake relationship between Nadia and Grayson, and the potential fall-out as the reality of their opposing worlds is about to bite them in the a$$. Grayson Chandler is tired of his mother’s match making plans, and of his father’s desperate attempts to get him to join the family business. With the death of his older brother Jason, Grayson found himself avoiding the family’s guilt-ridden stranglehold as their only, remaining son. Desperate times called for desperate measures, and Grayson made Nadia an offer, she couldn’t refuse. Nadia has been a single parent to her younger brother most of his life, and Grayson’s offer of a fake relationship came with the financial promise that would help Nadia’s brother in his post-secondary education but all does not go according to plan when the Chandler family tries desperately to destroy the growing love between our leading couple. The relationship between Nadia and Grayson begins as an accidental meeting but Grayson has no idea Nadia works for KayCee Corporation. Desperate to keep the wolves away, Grayson offers Nadia money in exchange to play the role of his loving fiancé. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. The colorful secondary and supporting characters including Nadia’s brother Ezra; Grayson’s sister Melanie, and their parents Cherise and Daryl; as well as the cameo appearance of Gideon Knight, and Darius King. BLAME IT ON THE BILLIONAIRE is a story of family, friendships, secrets and lies. The fast paced premise is entertaining; the characters are energetic; the romance is seductive and captivating.

This is a wonderful story. I fell for Nadia Jordan right alongside start-up billionaire Grayson Chandler. Nadia is smart, strong and principled. I love that she fell for the man and could have done without the old money culture he came from. I really loved the way she dealt with those who would belittle her. A terrific Cinderella tale.

This was a very enjoyable read. Gray and Nadia's story was easy to get into and become invested in. The book is a fun combination of opposites attract/fake fiancée/Cinderella fantasy with a sprinkling of instalust. I thought both characters were very likable. Nadia was incredibly realistic. Fierce and feisty, kind, independent and a loving sister, she was the type of character it was impossible not to fall for and wish you could be friends with. Gray was I thought a really good guy but he did have some hard issues that needed to be dealt with. It was great to see the growth he made along the way. Together these two made a wonderful couple that had you laughing one minute and swooning the next. Quite simply this is a really, really good read.

I loved this book! It had a perfect blend of steaminess and emotion. Not only emotion from our heroine, but also our hero. Grayson wasn’t just a take-charge billionaire, he cared about his family. He cared about people, and he had vulnerabilities. He buried them, but they were there, and Nadia made it safe for him to share. Not only share, but for her to show him how she saw him. Nadia also opened up to him, and he saw how beautiful she truly was inside and out. Combine all those emotions, and all the chemistry these two share, along with a boss/employee AND a fake relationship, and I was in romance heaven!

This story was so enjoyable, and I loved watching two damaged people open up to finding love again. A great way to cap off this awesome series. Nadia Jordan has had it pretty rough. Growing up in small-town Georgia, the daughter of the town floozy, and an unknown father, everyone looked down on her. Her mother was derelict at best, and constantly forgot Nadia when it suited her. When Nadia's baby brother, Ezra, came along, she gave up her own dreams and ambitions to facilitate his, since she knew her mother wasn't capable of taking care of them. 2 years ago, she and her brother moved to Chicago for her to take a secretarial job at a large corporation. Ever since, she's been on auto-pilot, caring for Ezra, and working, and not really getting close to anyone. Until one night, a blackout at a fancy party changes everything. Grayson Chandler is the son of Chicago royalty. His family has a thriving corporation and are part of the upper echelon in their society. Grayson broke off to form his own company with his best friend, and it is doing even better than he could've dreamed. But, after the unexpected death of his older brother a few months before, his parents have starting hounding him about leaving his company to come back and helm the family business when his father retires. His mother also has plans to reunite him with his ex-fiancee, which he has ZERO interest in. While attending a gala, he needs a break from all his family's crazy, and hides out in a hallway. He runs into a beautiful woman right before the blackout, and they spend the night together. To say he's shocked to see her at work on Monday is an understatement. Gray and Nadia later agree to have a fake relationship for 4 months. This would get his mother off his back about his ex, and help Nadia pay for her brother to go to Yale. They had amazing chemistry, but there were so many half-truths and things left unspoken between them. They really didn't want to want each other, so it was hard for them to accept when they started to catch feelings. They each had things in their past that caused them to be cautious with their hearts, and they didn't think they could really trust each other. They were constantly putting on a show for everyone else, not realizing how deep they were falling into each other. Nadia's brother was a sweetheart, and I enjoyed her relationship with him, and his talks with Gray. Gray's sister was sweet, but his parents were a NIGHTMARE, and his ex was a nasty piece of work. I hated every scene she was in, but I loved how Nadia handled each of their interactions. She was a total boss, and left each time with her head held high. Nadia handled pretty much everything that was thrown her way regarding Gray, except her feelings for him. And in the end, she handled that the best way she could as well. Nadia was an awesome heroine, and I really liked her. Gray, once he got out of his own way, and out from under the unnecessary guilt from his brother's death, was pretty great too. This story completely worked for me, and I loved watching this couple fall for each other, and then fight for each other. I highly recommend this entire series, and this author in general. I'm never disappointed!
