Fake Girlfriend...Real F*ck Buddy... More sparks than I bargained for.
Liam O’Sullivan just told the world that I’m his girlfriend.
He’s a liar — there’s a difference between making a commitment and casually hooking up with him for years on account of his generous… package.
But that commitment changes everything for me. One little lie sets my career into motion, but also puts the spotlight directly on us… the happy couple.
He’s an arrogant, filthy-talking, sexy bastard with questionable family ties… who just changed my world for the better.
Almost overnight, I start to reap the rewards of what Liam sowed by saying those three words.
But it’s a lie he told just because he could. We can’t keep this up forever. I force him to agree that we’ll end the charade as soon as the opportunity presents itself.
I’m a smart girl. No biggie at all. I’m certain I can handle it.
I just don’t expect to fall in real love with my fake boyfriend.
*Author's Note: The Billionaire and the Bad Girl is a standalone, novella-length romance with a HEA, no cliffhanger, and no cheating. Books in the Seduction and Sin series can be read in any order.
About the Author
From Author Bella Love-Wins.
I love writing steamy, high-action romance stories about firefighters, billionaires, shifters, and alpha males who know what they want and aren't afraid of laying claim to the women who catch their interest. I love a happy ever after ending. I enjoy reading, hiking, the countryside, and traveling to destinations unspoiled by commercial tourism, like Las Vegas. :)
Like so many characters in my novels, I enjoy action, romance and unexpected love connections that take your breath away. For the next while, you'll find me plotting and writing about my latest stories on my Macbook.

Vanessa was a sassy, successful lawyer who thought she could control the men (well, man) in her life. Liam is a sexy, alpha male who doesn't take no for an answer. I loved how he tamed her fiery spirit, and even though this was a fairly quick read, I got a good feel for why Vanessa felt the way she did about relationships, and why she didn't want to commit. Great steamy read, with an over the top hunk who gets what he wants. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
This was my first book by Bella Love-Wins. Sadly, I did not care for it all that much. That may be in part due to the fact that this is a novella and I had no background on any of the characters. I did not like Vanessa in the beginning of the book nor did I like her at the end. I love strong, independent heroines, but she was too adamant about it, at least for me. Overall, I felt very little connection between Liam and Vanessa, and I did not see much character growth or development throughout the book. I did enjoy the camaraderie of Vanessa's brother Dylan and his friends, and I think I would enjoy reading their stories. This one just wasn't it for me. *** I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy.***
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. Ms Love-Wins just keeps putting out great books. This latest book is just another one in a long list of hot and sexy reads about Alpha men and the women who love them. This story is a bout Vanessa the younger sister of Dylan who we met in a previous book of Ms Wins, and Liam the guy Vanessa has been involved with for the past four years. Vanessa sees herself as a woman who doesn't need to have a commuted relationship and likes her current arrangement with Liam. Liam, however wants more and knows Vanessa wants that two but needs that extra push to help her realize he is the one for her and she is the one for him. I also enjoyed the appearance of characters from her other Billionaire stories. Jace, Jackson, Dylan and the women in their lives. I really enjoyed this story and l of course the HEA. I look forward to reading more of this ongoing storyline and hope to see what comes of Caleb and Rosa as well as a possible story for Foster.
Liam has known for a while how he feels about Vanessa and he is ready to call her out. These two have been in a "friends with benefits" relationship for over 3 years and Liam has turned the tables on her. Vanessa has never wanted a committed relationship but when Liam tells his Uncle Craig and her Mom, Diane, that they are boyfriend/girlfriend, the idea of reality starts to grow on her. I love the twist on this book in that it is the male character going after what he wants against the female character who has her heels dug in was a thoroughly enjoyable read!I voluntarily read this ARC.
Off the charts chemistry for friends-with-benefits Liam & Vanessa but can that develop into more when the stakes are high? Awesome romantic story with some drama, hesitancy to commit and steamy heat. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Oh !!! I loved this story! How often is the guy the one that KNOWS how this will play out? Vanessa is ALL about the booty call, no tangles or ties! Liam has had 4 years to know, this is NOT a booty call. Now he has to convince the girl! A quick happy read!
