Overview

Meet the Maverick Billionaires--sexy, self-made men from the wrong side of town who survived hell together and now have everything they ever wanted. But when each Maverick falls head-over-heels for an incredible woman he never saw coming, he will soon find that true love is the only thing he ever really needed... An exciting and emotional contemporary romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully!

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Will Franconi has a dark past that he's kept a closely guarded secret--very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he's now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something's missing. He doesn't quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him...if only he could ever be worthy of her love.

When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She's learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she's guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she's vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again.

Still, sometimes Harper can't help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who's wild and free...especially when Will's kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he's so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He's kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible?

What a great new series by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully! I loved the idea of Billionaires in Love as soon as they announced this series and the first book is a winner for sure. Will Franconi had a rough start to life and because of it, his past has always remained a tightly guarded secret. He and his group of friends, called The Mavericks, along with his foster parents, are all the family that Will has ever needed. That and making something of himself by becoming a wealthy man where everything is going his way. Or so he thought until he receives a letter from a teenaged boy who puts him on the path to meeting the boy and his sister. After losing her parents to a car accident several years ago, Harper Newman is the guardian of her teenaged brother who was also in an accident when he was seven and depends on her for everything. She has vowed never to let him be hurt again. Harper has made the decision to close herself off to love after the men she has dated previously have only wanted to get close to her due to what she could do for them monetarily...it was never about her. When Will and Harper meet due to the letter that her brother sent to Will, sparks fly immediately, however neither one of them wants to admit it. They both have their own hang-ups regarding why they shouldn't get involved, but they both realize early on that it's inevitable they are going to eventually come together. As Will builds a relationship with Harper's brother, Jeremy, she sees her brother blossoming like he never has before. Will genuinely cares, which is a new thing for Harper to experience. Can these two people that have demons in their pasts be able to get past them and give the magnetic pull they are feeling a chance? Will they trust one another enough to open up? Kudos to Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully for crafting a story where both the hero and the heroine learn some tough lessons about themselves throughout the course of the book. You could see both of them growing as the story went on because the other person was bringing things to the forefront that they had not realized. I really enjoyed the characters and I'm looking forward to the books of the other Mavericks still to come!

Andre and Scully wrote a real story. Will and Harper were two people who should never have met. He was a man whose father went to prison after droning into his heart that nobody could ever love Will unless he could trick them with lies and deceit. His father raised him to steal from homes his father broke into. Will was worthless unless he stole the best and he ran with a gang. Harper's life changed the day an indulged teenager ran her seven year old brother down with his car when she was 17. Her parents were not able to pay for her brother's medical bills and aftercare. Which is why they accepted the money from the wealthy parent to protect his spoiled son. At 22, her parents died in a plane crash and Harper became responsible for her 12 year old brother with special needs. For the next five years, it was up to Harper to kepp Jeremy safe. Her careerwas one that allwed her to focus on her brother's needs. She found that the men she dated had hidden agendas, either to gain access to Jeremy's trust, or to try to have her brother placed in a home so she'd be able to focus on the man. To live her life after 17, Harper denied herself. She focused on keeping Jeremy safe and making sure she protected him in every instance. She drove slow. She maintained a strick schedule. Harper stopped dating because she couldn't find trust in others. Harper had to barricade her heart away to ensure the nothing hurt her brother, ever. Jeremy wrote to Will and Will was so charmed by the his words that they decided to meet. Will realzed that the young boy he thought wrote the letter was actually a young man. A young man who had a beautiful sister. And that is where the story begins....

Terrific This is a really great story. Will wasn't always the wealthy guy he is. He grew up poor and ended up living with a great family which included a lot of his friends. The Maverick's, they have all done well for themselves. He collects and builds card as a hobby and appeared on a car show which brought Jeremy & his sister to his attention. Jeremy was guys when he was younger and cars fascinate him. Harper fascinates Will. But Will wants to do good for her brother also.

Will Franconi is the most unexpected type of Billionaire, through his words and actions everyday he shows how much he cares for the world around him. Considering the life he came from this is really a refreshing personality to see. Harper Newman lives her life for her brother and is his only family. Thanks to a heart felt letter her brother writes to Will about his car collection Harper and Will meet and sparks fly. I loved the way these two seam to fill all the empty spaces in each-other without even trying. This was a great story of love and self discovery. Look forward to reading the rest of the Maverick's stories.
