Can't Buy Me Love
It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.
Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .
I'm not a huge fan of Billionaire novels, but I'm eating my words on this one. It's funny, the romance builds slowly, and there's a Great Dane! This was a very enjoyable read.
Rachel Foster is a bartender at Andromeda, a local Chicago neighborhood pub. She recently left a high powered marketing job when her ex took credit for her work and received her promotion. She is living with her best friend and co-bartender Bree while she is looking for a job in her background and trying to save money. She just had the most unbelievable stroke of luck..one of her regular's at the bar, Oliver, had hired her to dog sit for him in his luxury condo in Crane Towers. Living for a month in luxury and getting paid for it, can't beat that. She loves his dog, Adonis, a giant Great Dane. She will keep her regulars second shifts at the bar.
Tag Crane, of the famous Crane family, lives in the penthouse of Crane Towers which he own's. His brother Reese is the CEO of the company and his other brother Eli is in the military. We met Reese and Merina in the first novel in this series, The Billionaire Bachelor. Tag is in charge of Guest and Restaurant services worldwide for the Crane hotels, and works hard at it. He is presently re designing the bar and restaurant for their Hawaii hotel. He gets a glimpse of Rachel as she 's running out to work. All blonde, petite with great legs. He's going to find out who she is! Tag loves women and dates a lot. Not a fan of relationships though. "Tag preferred to binge on the highs and bail on the lows." Listening to Adonis barking all night, he goes to check on Oliver, and finds himself staring into the blue eyed blonde. Isn't that interesting.....
Tag and Rachel are immediately attracted, but after being humiliated by her ex, not ready to jump into another romance. Tag is patient, sexy and tries his hardest to make her realize he is not like her ex. When she's ready, the pages heat up!
This can be read as a stand alone, the first in the series is also very entertaining. I'm looking forward to Eli's story.
I received this ARC from the publisher and Netgalley. For an honest review.
This is the 2nd book in the Billionaire Bad Boys series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. It may contain spoilers for those who have not read this series in order.
Rachel has been hurt by an ex who didn't care enough about her. Tag has no plans to care about anyone. Together, they are so hot they are nearly combustible.
Tag wants someone to care for. Rachel does not want to get involved with an obvious player. She is not ready for the feelings she and Tag are starting to feel.
This series is just amazing. Really... and this book was a perfect addition. The heat nearly seared the pages off - so you have been warned - this book is HOT! I loved the character development we see. I loved the sparks that were flying. This story is a just a great read.

I really loved Tag and Rachel's love story. On their own they are each a fun character to read. Put them together and it is even better. Loved all of their interactions. Adding a great dane named Adonis doesnt hurt either. This is my favorite book now. P.S I want Adonis. I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.
