Sometimes, falling in love means falling hard.

Lizzy meets two men: Theo and Mannix. One of the men seems to want to protect her, and the other wants to own her.

Theo is as sweet as his caramel eyes. The handsome, bright lawyer wants to save the world and to take a relationship with Lizzy slowly, too darn slowly.

Mannix is a blue-eyed, smoldering ex-pro-football player with a taste for the disturbing.
Both are gorgeous. Both want her.

But Lizzy is broken. For the first time, she wants to not be so broken anymore.

Romantic and suspenseful, Falling Hard sizzles with sex and explores the power of love to heal the deepest wounds.

You need to enjoy reading about BDSM to fully enjoy this book and I don't. That explains the low rating. J

Very good read so far. Its good to find out about Lizzy's life and its great how the author wrote Lizzy's story during the same timeline as her previous books Billionaire in Disguise:Rae all 9 episodes Great writing and I can't wait for Episodes 2.

Falling Hard is the beginning of Lizzy's story. I first met Lizzy while I was reading Blair's other Billionaire's in Disguise books, Rae's story. Lizzy and Rae are college roommates who both work at The Devilhouse. Lizzy is keeping a secret from everyone and hiding from her parents. She meets two men at nearly the same time, the first and handsome "medium" man named Theo and the second, "Mr. Smolder" Mannix. Theo is the nice guy and Mannix is the bad boy. Lizzy likes Theo at first, but then he betrays her trust and uncovers her secret. She can't handle being found out, so she runs to Mannix. Mannix is a Dom and Lizzy becomes his sub. It all goes bad quickly and Lizzy feels trapped. The book ends in a cliffhanger that makes you want to jump to buy the next book.

I had read about Georgie and Rae first and always had questions about everyone mentioned when they spoke with or talked about Lizzy. I finally got the chance to start reading this part of the series and found myself absolutely mesmerized. It was erotic romance at its best. The beginning of Lizzy's story made me giggle and broke my heart. I love getting to know her on a new level that is teaching me where she fits in with this bunch of misfits. There is a time in each of the other stories that we lose track of Lizzy. This is her story of where she was and what she endured. She's obviously beautiful like the other girls although petite. But don't let that sway you. She's got a hard edge about her and she's been through more than anyone should have to go through. So much of it is eye opening and unnerving. Blair Babylon has a way of getting into the dirt and grit of a person, showing us not just the difficulties of their lives but the ugliness that drives a person to do and be who they are. I am looking forward to reading Playing Rough and seeing where Lizzy's life leads from here.

The Devilhouse Books continue from Lizzy's POV First, let me say that I was slightly confused by the name change from The Devilhouse Books to Billionaires in Disguise when I got my ARC, but I am happy that they continue to call the club The Devilhouse. I had been anxiously awaiting the new series for a couple of weeks. I found the first book in the Devilhouse Books: Rae on one of the many pages that I "like" and decided to download it, since it was free and I had not heard of Blair before. I read the book within a few hours of purchasing it and absolutely loved it. I loved it so much that I went back and purchased the whole series (1-9) and read those as well. Blair's writing is exceptional and so easy to follow. We had been advised on Blair's FB page that Lizzy's story would give us more of Wulf and Rae, which I was really happy about. There were so many things that I still wanted to know about them and the other characters that we first saw in Rae's story. Knowing that Lizzy and Georgie were being flown over to Paris for Rae's wedding was enough to soothe my angst until the new series came out. In Falling Hard: Episode 1 of Billionaires in Disguise: Lizzy, we get to go back to the same time that we originally met Rae and the girls and see everything from Lizzy's POV. I have to say, I thought we would see more of Rae and Wulf than we do, but it's not enough to upset me, because I love the way Blair is taking us through this. And the *cliffhanger* at the end of this first book will leave you breathless and wanting more. I didn't see the connection until that very last few pages. I can only hope that the next three episodes are as exciting as this one. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**

I would never have thought someone could tolerate and even enjoy this kind of abuse but this author makes it seem perfectly normal and even "pleasurable".....

There is a cliffhanger but this is a great series. We met Lizzy in the Billionaires In Disguise (BID): Rae series but you don’t have to have read that series to read this one. Lizzy is somewhat troubled. She thinks she loves the Dom of the Devilhouse but he’s in love with Rae. This is a hard book for me to review. I’ve read the entire series and loved it. Since I read them all, one right after the other, it’s a bit difficult to separate one episode from the other. In this episode Lizzy kind of falls for two VERY different men: Theo and Mannix. Before the end of the series she will have to choose between them. The BID: Lizzy books are a bit darker than the Rae books but it fits for Lizzy’s character. This series is full of sexy and not so sexy times. It is also full of intrigue and some violence. I did not want to stop reading this series once I started. Be warned that there is strong language and some possibly disturbing scenes in this book. There is also a cliffhanger, which I usually hate. I love Blair Babylon’s books, though, and since all of the episodes for Lizzy’s story are available now I have no problem recommending this series. If you read the BID: Rae series, and you want more of her and Wulf, you MUST read BID: Lizzy. p.s. I do not understand reviewers who criticize this for being only part of a book. The title of the book clearly lets you know that it is Episode 1. I hate it when authors do not disclose that their book has a cliffhanger but this is not the case with this book.

I am very conflicted on my review of this book. On the one hand, the writing is great. On the other, the content was disturbing. If you don't like BDSM, and apparently I don't, I would suggest avoiding this book. That said, the insight I gained into Lizzy's mind was enlightening and helped me to understand the possible motivations behind the submission. It has taken me 2 days to compose my thoughts because I just wanted to forget what I had read and move on. I couldn't do that. Blair Babylon created a character with whom I sympathize and she's someone I can't forget. In my mind, this is a real person in a real messed up relationship, and I want to help her. I know it's fictional, but my feelings are a testament to the writing skills of the author. I want to know that she'll be okay, but truthfully, I don't think I can bring myself to read the sequels. It sounds like it gets even worse before it gets better, and having read reviews of the sequels I can live with the knowledge that Lizzy eventually comes to her senses without having to read all of the upsetting details. In short, I'm giving this book 3 stars because the writing deserves 5 but I hated the content.

Loved Theo & Lizzy, lots of action. Looking forward to see what happens to poor Noah, since he saved Theo.

This first book about Lizzy pretty much reviews Rae's tale from Lizzy's point of view. It was well done and had very few typos and/or grammer errors. The story line was consistent. It does leave me wanting to find out what happens next so that is a good place to have a reader in!

A spark that grows into an inferno! Initially the timeline started out a little confusing for me; I'll just come straight out and say that the introduction flatout threw me off. Add in that this series is connected to character from the previous series, Billionaires in Disguise: Rae, and that the timeline is essentially the same, it took me a little while to adjust from the Lizzy I remembered from the previous series and connect with her character in the setting of having her own story. Once I got over that little hiccup the book really started to take off for me! I loved getting to know Lizzy better and connecting with her character. There is so much more depth to her than was anticipating; I underestimated her because of my previous experience with her being a supporting character. I always thought of Lizzy as pleasant and caring, but to see her inner struggles, insecurities and emotions coming through was an eye opening experience for me. By a quarter of the way in I was 100% hooked. Lizzy is a female powerhouse. Emotionally abused, physically damaged, mentally conflicted and sexually unsatisfied; she views herself as broken but at the same time uses her strength and outward beauty to her advantage every day. Her over the top Jersey girl attitude that's packed into such a pint sized body is a winning combination every time. Her will to survive and stand on her own two feet is admirable and at the same time she has this soft and vulnerable side that I just couldn't help falling in love with. I found Falling Hard to be an erotic adventure, it IS still the Devilhouse after all! Once again pushing the limits as it delves into the heat of subspace bliss and explores dominant settings that are both terrifying and tantalizing. A fast paced, engaging and emotional rollercoaster; Falling Hard overcame its initial challenges and left me satisfied while at the same time yearning for more. It's what the Devilhouse is known for, after all! A copy of Falling Hard was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

As part of the Billionaires in Disguise series, we learn more about Lizzy and her past. After her Dom-Date with The Dom she thought she was in love with him. And it was hard to see him much less with someone else. So she follows Rea's advice about telling The Dom she wants to be his sub. When she tells him he is not angry with her, he just doesn't take subs or slaves. He will help her find a Dom if that is what she wants. She meets Theo at at Devilhouse party and she likes him but she also sees Mr Smolder (Mannix) across the room. Which will she choose? And what will she do when she finds out the connection with Theo and Mannix? It was a surprise to me but I can't wait for more. Blair has a way of pulling you into the story and making you want more when you reach the end.  **I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review**
