His attention was still concentrated on the screen of his phone. She did. Or order pizza. And Evan could eat silently, then retreat to his study and barely talk to her for the rest of the evening. Finally Evan moved. He shifted, sitting up so he could face her. He took off his sunglasses, and for some reason April did too.
For the first time in what suddenly felt like ages he looked directly at her. Really intensely, his hazel eyes steady against her own silvery blue. Firmly, and in a way that probably should have surprised her.
April pretended to misunderstand. They still loved each other, though. April knew she still loved Evan. To her, that had been all that mattered. Eventually it would go back to how it had used to be between them. You deserve better, April. The words were all mashed together, tangled up in the salty breeze.
His lips quirked upwards. We both deserve that love you see in the movies, or in those books you read. At all. I promise. They are instantly drawn to each other. They made me laugh at times especially Emma. I was a little sad because of the way Zach felt. Loved the hot sex scenes with Mr. It was good to see caveman Zach too I loved him. Awesome read and spinoff from the Chase Brothers series!!!
Hey Xander!!! Hope Steven gets a book. Oct 17, Sarah rated it really liked it. This story was tantalisingly frustrating in a good way of course.
I'm Your Voice
It was hot and steamy whilst also making you want to pull your hair out in frustration. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and fell a bit in love with Zach. It was nice to read a story that was given from both main characters points of view. I think we have all had this relationship experience of a first crush that got away and not taking the leap to see what happens. I adore a good love story and this was definitely one of those. I connected with both Zach and Emma as characters and felt like I was part of the story. It makes you connect with the story and characters from the start and draws you in.
I hope Nana does more sequels to this book and explore the characters and their relationship further. Oct 20, Sharing My rated it it was amazing. So hot! I love stories about a girl and her brother's best friend, so I knew I would love Mr. I loved how strong Emma was. She wanted an adventure and to do what she loved, and nothing or no one was going to stop her. Zach was hot! His best friend asked him to look out for his sister, but he might have done too good of a job. Even though he felt he didn't deserve her, and was worried about how her brother would react, he just couldn't stay away from Emma.
He was drawn to her like a magnet. Emma also felt the pull towards Zach. She just wished he'd stop giving her mixed signals. Can their relationship survive once Emma's brother finds out?

Commotion in Moscow
It's a brother's best friend story that is well-paced with intriguing characters and a good storyline. While there is a plot twist in the form of Zack's secret, there's no suspense built up for the reader as it is made known fairly early on. The secret he's keeping from Emma torments him, and the guilt is eating him up, which creates good conflict between the two.

Big is the story of Zack Andrews and Emma Welsh. Zack is a self made man that has a past. His plagues him now and again. When Emma walks into his world again all the old feelings rise up again. He's always liked her and well she's off limits of course because hello she is his best friend's little sister. What starts out as watching over her turns into the feelings making their way out and being hard to resist. It was a good story.

Seriously enjoyable and loved the chance for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Oct 15, Pauline Cassie rated it really liked it. Mr Big is a story of forbidden love, at least that's how Zach sees it! Zach has been in love with Emma almost as long as she has been in love with him. A story of perceived unrequited love. Years later Emma moves to London and Zach is tasked with looking out for her.
He struggles to keep his distance and eventually fails, yay! There are of course some trials that our young lovers have to overcome before achieving their hea. The character of Emma is a bit more believable than that of Zach. But poor, u Mr Big is a story of forbidden love, at least that's how Zach sees it! But poor, unloved lads always make good,don't they?
An easy read with no real trauma despite the issues faced by the characters. For an enjoyable escape from everyday life this one really hits the mark! Oct 18, Lisa added it.

Emma and Zach are from the same small town and grow up together, but are worlds apart in terms of life experiences.

Though the title of this book may have you widening your eyes, it is not a central theme.
Zach may be well endowed but that doesn't rule his life in any way. What you do get to see are his BIG feelings for Emma. He's actually a really sweet guy under that ice cool professional veneer. He's had feelings for her for ages and now she's giving his every opportunity on act on them. She's felt the same for him since she was a wee thing but they never had the courage to reveal them to each other.

Of course - this meant that the wedding doesn't happen and leads to a downward spiral for just about everyone except for Jake. Speaking of Jake, i think that we're all interested in his story. I mean, he's been protected all his life from the repercussions of his actions and it's really a questions of how far Alexander will go this time to protect him.
Even after we get the outcome of what the judge says to him, we are left to wonder if he'll ever change - and while i hope that he does, i hope that he doesn't lose his bad boy edge. And given the sweet intro to Sugar in this book, i hope that we get to see more of Jake and Sugar in book 3 - Jake's story. Anyhow - the roller coaster continues in this story - seeing Shauna tear Lila and Alexander apart, and really the question comes down to what will bring them back together. Since it's Lila that walked away - she really needs to come to terms with what Alexander has to offer her and what she's willing to give up since what Shauna's claiming brings back all these memories from her past.
Aside from this complex story which i really enjoyed - we continue to see how these 2 CANNOT keep their hands off one another and the way that our author writes the scenes is really engaging. I found myself really looking forward to reading through their chemistry and seeing how Alexander really tested Lila's boundaries without taking things too far. The one thing that i kept hoping for though was more of a twist with Mark and Eva.
We get it with one of the 2 - i won't say which but i think that there's more there. I feel like there are motives that we don't really get into here - and while we have an epilogue that puts closure on things, i feel like there's still room for some dirty business to take place. We know that Mark has his own agenda, and i feel like Eva has it in her as well to be a bit devious. I guess we'll see if anything flares up in book 3.
View 1 comment. Loved it! Alexander and Lila are back, and their story is even better than before. These two have experienced some pretty wild things before, but now there is so much more to deal with. The chemistry between these two has always been explosive. Now that they are no longer only cocooned inside their own little world, but venturing into the public as a couple, what happens when outside forces try to destroy their bliss? Alexander and Lila have quickly fallen in love with one another and have Wow! Alexander and Lila have quickly fallen in love with one another and have shut out the outside world while living in their own little bubble.
Their bubble is threatened to burst when it's time to venture back to reality. Will Lila be able to handle working with and alongside Alexander? Will someone determined to not see the couple together destroy what Alexander and Lila have with their vicious actions? Juliette did an amazing job with the follow-up of Lila and Alexander's story. Their journey may have been exciting before, but it only gets better in this installment. I am completely stoked to read Jake's story in Badboy Billionaire book 3!!!
I highly recommend this series to others! It's a fast paced read with excitement, eroticism, emotional stirrings, and much more! It was fate I found this sequel. I randomly logged onto NetGalley and there it was So glad! Alexander and Lila's passion for one another is on another level. It's an actual love story your reading and I'm so happy I had the opportunity to fall in love with them all over again. If I read correctly, Jake will be getting his own book book 3. I'm pretty sure we were introduced briefly to his new love interest who comes with her own interesting back story.
I think what sucks me in is the writing style. Thing are described in such wonderful detail without being overly descriptive. Love you Juliette Jones, keep on writing great stuff, and I'll continue to read! I enjoyed this book. I kinda felt at the end I was running a bit of a race of confusion and hit a dead stop. View all 4 comments. Yay, I've been waiting for this one! Juliette Jones is one of my new favorites. This book is a great continuation of the series and is well written.

Wish I could get one just like him. Sexy, fun and addictive. Erotic romance at its best!! Their relationship has been on the fast track. Love at first sight for them both. She has started working for him at this point and they are planning their perfect rushed wedding because he wants Jake as his best man but they don't know yet if Jake will have to do jail time or not.

Their love for one another is obsessive but beautiful at the same time. There was more story line to this book than the first book. Don't get me wrong, Juliette Jones still makes us sweat with her amazing ability to write scorching sex scenes but they were not excessive in this book.
I wanted to strangle you-know-who! Of course she has perfect timing. Lila is young and a little naive. Letting another man hold your hand, knowing how possessive your boyfriend is, is not the best idea but maybe she'll learn. The trust issues they both were working on were intense. I think he's learning too. I love how Juliette Jones writes an ending.
As I'm finishing the last page, I'm completely satisfied. I have closure to the specific issues in this story. I love that! I can't wait for book three, Jake's story. I totally loved the continuation of Alexander and Lila in Honey Girl. Alexander and Lila are obsessed with each other; they lust after each other, but they also love each other. The sex between these two is steamy and off the wall I could feel my face flushing as I was reading. Lila wants to spread her wings a little and Alexander is learning to let go, just a bit.

He grew up taking care and protecting his brother Jake he still looks out for Jake ; relinquishing control is not easy for Alexander.

The main characters have a bit of an, in my opinion, unconventional romance which might have seemed unbelievable but the author made it work.
