“Just for tonight.”
Until their chance reunion takes a sharp turn…toward twins.
Tech billionaire Benjamin Bennett can’t resist a steamy weekend with Sloane Sutton—his crush on her goes way back. But when he tracks her down, she’s pregnant—with twins! Now their fling needs trust to survive. Benji wants a wedding; his family claims she’s a gold digger. But Sloane won’t be bought—or married. Can they find common ground…and a shot at forever?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
The Billionaire’s Legacy had it all—steam, sweet romance, surprise babies and a sexy billionaire set on becoming a family.
Ben always had a crush on his big sister’s best friend. Finally able to do something about it, he enticed Sloan into a weekend of sexy fun before leaving the country for work. Little did he know that their fun would result in a set of twins.
Sloan refused to ruin Ben’s life by saddling him with two babies he didn’t really want. But when he came back to find her and realized what happened, she couldn’t deny she really needed help.
Sloan and Ben had really good chemistry, and when they could relax and just be together they were the cutest couple. The way they were with their babies was adorable too. The thing was, though, that they each had issues of their own, plus a lot a baggage. The fact that they weren’t completely open with each other meant there was a lot of miscommunications which drove me totally crazy.
The drama brought by Ben’s family felt totally OTT and I wanted to slap the whole lot of them. Prejudiced buttholes are a personal pet-peeve, so I didn’t like them. Both Sloan and Ben worked hard at not making the same mistakes as their parents, but they went about it in isolated ways, speculating about the motivations and responses of the other. This resulted in more misunderstandings.
Fortunately, I loved the way the story was set up, and how we get to spend a long span of time with them, from the middle of the pregnancy until the twins are almost a year old. Witnessing those babies grow, and how their parents were with them was adorable, and balanced all other annoyances.
In the end, The Billionaire’s Legacy was a sweet, somewhat sexy read about true love, openness and the importance of communication. I really enjoyed reading it and it left me with a smile on my face.
