Marianna Halsey has the most boring life in the world. With seven overprotective older brothers, she’s even ended up a virgin at twenty-four. But when a dark and sexy male prevents her from getting her wallet stolen on a Greek vacation, she decides it’s time for some adventure. She’s read a gazillion romance novels. How hard can it be to score a hook-up?
Greek billionaire and stock market whiz, Nico Galinas has built an empire from nothing. Literally. Orphaned as a baby, Nico trusts no one. Especially not the quirky, attractive woman using the worst pick up tricks in history. She wants something, and Nico decides to play along, even when she invites herself back to his place.
But what happens when the beast accidentally knocks up the beauty?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Oh my God! I can’t believe how much fun I had reading Beauty and the Greek Billionaire. A steamy, sexy and sweet romance with a little angst, it was practically perfect.
Marianna is accompanying one of her seven older brothers on a business trip to Greece. Having a profound love for languages and different cultures, she’s not only having the time of her life but also planning how to get rid of her pesky v-card. When the swooniest tall, dark and broody guy ever saves her wallet from being stolen she decides he’s her fated devirginizing hookup.
Nico is wary of the sexy Australian making eyes at him. He can’t deny he’s incredibly attracted to her and finds her natural and unassuming air completely charming. Next thing he knows they’re having the hottest encounter of his life, but things don’t end really well. Two months later and he’s moved on, if being more of a broody hermit than ever could be called that. That’s when Marianna shows up knocking on his door saying she’s pregnant with his baby and his world tips upside down.
I loved Marianna. She was sweet and loving, quirky and adorkable. The fact that she was all for doing the best for her baby made me love her even more. That and the way she kept messing up with Nico to loosen him up. Nico was one sexy recluse, having a difficult upbringing and not the happiest past, the walls he had built around himself were understandable. That doesn’t mean that I didn’t want to slap the crap out of him to make him see the light, but he had issues with reason. Once he let his walls down, he was funny and charming, and had an incredible depth of feeling. I absolutely adored these two together, as they made for one of the cutest and awkwardest couples ever.
With fabulous chemistry, a bit of angst, some lack of communication but loads of sensual tension you could almost feel in the air, Beauty and the Greek Billionaire captivated me from start to finish.
