Romancing the Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club Series #5) by Jessica Clare

The New Billionaire Boys Club novel by the New York Times bestselling author.

The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society. Six men of astonishing wealth. But there’s one thing money can’t buy. When it comes to love, success doesn’t come so easily…

Jonathan Lyons. Playboy, billionaire, and adventurer, he lives life on the edge. When he hears that his mentor, Dr. Phineas DeWitt, had a secret journal that leads to a legendary artifact, Jonathan takes action. It stirs his blood, but it comes with a heady challenge: DeWitt’s daughter Violet. She has what Jonathan needs. And she’s not giving it up it to the man who broke her heart.

Violet is Jonathan’s weakness—he’s still in love despite their volatile breakup a decade ago. But Violet’s memories have a sharper edge. She’s never forgiven him for abandoning her. Or so she thought. When Jonathan’s attentions turn seductive, she’s in danger of falling for him all over again. And she can’t help but wonder…does he really want her, or just what she's hiding?

## Meh....Just OK for me. However, a lot better than "Once Upon a Billionaire" which was deplorable. I think what was missing was the chemistry between the hero and heroine. And that's a biggie for me; a must for any romance novel. Also, I didn't like the way the hero described the heroine. "Rounded stomach and plump, generous hips" are NOT compliments. He tells her that her ass is big and juicy. Again, NOT a compliment. I'm really tired of these dowdy heroines that this author writes. Audrey whose weight was a constant issue, Maylee with the awful "frizzy" hair and bad clothes and now Violet. I like my heroines beautiful. After all it IS fiction. I think I'm done with this series.

I couldn't wait for this book. I expected a contrasting romance with some humor as with Logan, Hunter or Reese but this story didn't hit that for me. It went too far down the morose trail. Maybe next time.

Like the others here, I also couldn't wait for this book. I did enjoy the fact that I quickly learned I didn't know much about Jonathan Lyons from the previous books so that alone kept me reading. As I read more about Jonathan and Violet's relationship, however I grew tired with Jonathan professing his love over and over and over, and Violet continuing to doubt. Wasn't it ever obvious to her? But it is an easy read simply to find HOW they stay together because we all already know they will.

A sinfully sexy and delicious adventure to find hidden treasure and a love that will stand the test of time. I was hooked on this series after I was given the opportunity to read Beauty and the Billionaire.  Jessica Clare has a talent for writing billionaire tales that allow the reader to disappear for a while and believe that extraordinary things can happen to ordinary people.  Readers will be turning the pages to see what happens next on this crazy journey.  I felt like I was watching these characters from afar as they searched for the next clue that would bring them closer to the end of their quest.  Neither of them really knew what was in store for them at the end. As I read their story I realized what was going to happen at the end and really enjoyed how the story unfolded.  Jessica brilliantly reveals each clue with a very lovely piece of poetry that I found breathtakingly beautiful. Jonathan Lyons has never stopped loving Violet DeWitt.  She was it for him.  Even though they were only 19 years old when they first met, he never forgot the amazing summer they spent together.  Jonathan has not had a single relationship since their break-up and when an opportunity presents itself for him to seek her out he charges as fast as he can to get to her. Violet DeWitt is a school teacher in Detroit and has never forgot her one true love.  Jonathan Lyons nearly destroyed her ten years ago and she has not forgotten the pain and heartache he caused her.  She needed him and he abandoned her.  So when he shows up unannounced at the school where she is teaching she is not really happy to see him. Jonathan is so excited to see Violet once again.  She looks just like he remembered minus the purple streak she wore in her hair.  He is so sure that she will want to take the adventure her father left behind in his will for the two of them, that he is shocked when she turns him down angrily.  He remembers that their break-up was a little messy but can’t understand why she hates him.  It has been ten years.  Couldn’t the past stay in the past?  Unfortunately for Jonathan he has no clue of how Violet suffered because of him. Violet is feisty and sassy as they come.  I love how she keeps Jonathan on his toes.  Jonathan could be my new book boyfriend.  He is so kind and sweet and will do whatever it takes to make Violet happy.  This couple is one of my favorite couples for 2014.  There are so many secrets revealed and Violet has suffered so much at the hands of her parents.  You wonder if they will truly find their path to true love.  Yes Jessica Clare had me in tears at two points in this read.  I was emotionally invested in Violet’s happiness.  Since this is a romance novel you should know that yes the happily ever after comes but it is a heck of an emotional journey before you get there. If you like swoony romance with a lot of sizzle and spice you will love The Billionaire Boys Club Series. P.S.  I would have named this book Seducing the Teacher because the billionaire in this story is the master of seduction.

This The story is a little slow at times due to high saturation of dialog during love scenes. I would have given it more stars but all characters are not created equal. We have a wonderful hero and a totally frustrating heroine. The main characters are billionaire and adrenalin junkie Jonathan Lyons and Violet DeWitt, Johnathan's lost love and daughter of his mentor, Dr. Phineas DeWitt. They have been separated for ten years due to a broken heart, miscommunication and misunderstanding. Violet is selfish and loves to be miserable. Most of the miscommunication and misunderstanding is due to Violet's need to be brooding and unhappy. I wanted to slap her over and over (like Cher in Moonstruck) because she just continued to hang on to stuff even when given information that told her that she had misunderstood again. I loved the poetry but the extensive dialog did slow it way down. I couldn't believe that someone would allow an acquaintance or friend drink themselves into liver failure and calmly go to bed (that dang Violet is a "biotch"). This could have easily been a 4 or 5 stars but for Violet. Plot is obvious from the beginning that Dr. DeWitt was responsible for most of the miscommunications and this scavenger hunt was a way to get them together.

I've fallen completely in love with Jessica Clare's Billionaire Boys Club series. I've been very curious about Jonathan Lyons. He's been a relatively quiet member of the secret society thus far, which of course means that his story was sure to be one of the most interesting. Jonathan Lyons has been in love with Violet DeWitt for ten years. The death of his mentor and her father cause them to come together once more to fulfill her father's dying wish. Although their pairing is volatile at first, it doesn't take them long to rediscover why they fell in love in the past. There were several things about Romancing the Billionaire that make this book different from the others in this series. The first thing is that Jonathan is already in love when we first see him. He knew Violet when he was a teen, and she dumped him without an obvious reason. He never got over it and he never found someone else. So, the book starts with him already having this connection to this woman that is obviously strong and lasting. Violet is also still as much in love with Jonathan as he is with her. But, her love is accompanied by a world of hurt and anger that takes awhile for her to get past. There are legitimate reasons why she's so upset, and most of them have to do with her manipulative deceased father. When those reasons come out, it completely changes the game for Jonathan and Violet, and all of a sudden, the focus isn't as much on their past, but more on their mission to complete for her father. Romancing the Billionaire is one part romance novel one part Indiana Jones movie. It actually reminded me more of National Treasure - Jonathan and Violet are given a clue to decipher, which leads to another clue, and another and so forth. Their clues take them around the world, and uses their past experiences and their shared love of history and archaeology to bring them together as a formidable team. They worked well together, both in the field and in the bedroom. Holy smokes - when these two decided to get over their past hurts and get down to the business of loving each other again, they were amazing. Jonathan is incredibly sweet and sensitive, even though he does seem to put his foot in his mouth a lot. Violet is tough and strong, but all that seems to fly out the window when in Jonathan's presence. Their shared moments alone were tender and bittersweet and hot and sexy. It was incredibly satisfying. Because Jonathan and Violet spent most of their time on the road, we didn't see much from the other boys in the club. We saw Cade the most often, as he and Jonathan are the closest of friends among the group. Cade helps Violet out in several key places in the book - it was fun seeing him in the fun and playful role for a change. If you haven't started this series yet, I highly recommend it. Each book is a light and quick read - perfect for a day of escapism. I loved it.

Predictable & a waste of money. I've never read a romance novel that had the "hero" jerk off every chance he got because he wasn't getting any from the main character. Repulsive book. I couldn't even finish it. One star is too high of a rating for this one.

If I wanted to read a porn book, I would have ordered one. The mystery part was OK but the sex was disgusting--caling it "romancing" was definitely misleading!!!!!!!

I was looking forward to this release, but honestly, I had to push my way through it. Violet and Jonathan had been in love as teens, but because of Jonathan's own past, he couldn't commit to her when she needed him most. He turned his back, so she thought and chose to stay with her father as his student instead of being with her. Jonathan never stopped loving her and has to earn her trust and love. There were some parts that were very emotional and touched me. Then there were times you got tired of Violet constantly pushing him away. Still a good read and I am looking forward to the next installment.
