Samantha Taylor turned her back on her wealthy family to focus on social work. Those who know her think she’s the heart of kindness. Those who know her really well know she’s in a never-ending battle to make up for the harm her family’s companies inflict on the world. Which is how she finds herself at a charity bachelor auction of all places.
But oops, she was supposed to bid on her bff’s brother as a favor and accidentally bid on the wrong guy. Sue her for not being able to tell one stick-in-the-mud CEO from another.
Backstage, she goes to tell him not to worry about having to go through with a date or anything, but the oafish billionaire cuts her off dismissively. Looks her up and down, hands her a card with his assistant’s contact details, and reminds her that sex is definitely off the table.
Oh, she’ll call the assistant all right and have her make sure he wears jeans and comfortable shoes and to pick her up at seven a.m. The only “hammering” this guy is going to be doing is at Habitat for Humanity.
Too bad he turns out to be nothing like she expected.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
An Accidental Date with a Billionaire was a fun, sexy and entertaining read I enjoyed greatly.
Samantha stuffed up when she “won” a date with the wrong bachelor, and instead of rescuing her best friend’s brother she ends up with some random jerk CEO who couldn’t even bother to look up from his phone. When he basically writes her off, her pride dictates she teaches the a-hole a lesson and promptly sets up a date to make him suffer.
Taylor finds himself intrigued by Samantha’s apparent lack of interest in him. When their early date turns out to be working construction for Habitat for Humanity, he realizes he might have been completely off in his first impression of her. Similarly, Samantha’s expectation of how their “date” would progress is completely shattered when it turns out Taylor not only knows his way around a construction site but has actually worked with Habitat for Humanity before.
Taylor and Samantha share incredible chemistry and are soon trying to fight the pull. The more time they spend together, the more difficult it becomes to ignore their connection. But neither wants a relationship, and they’re totally wrong for each other, they’re just too different to even bother. Or are they?
I really liked both Taylor and Samantha. She was hardworking, strong and had an iron will. I struggled a bit with her insistence to ignore her feelings and how she kept at her self-imposed punishment. Taylor was a fantastic hero. He starts off as an inconsiderate jerk, sexy as hell sure, but a total ass. As we begin to know him and his feelings for Samantha shake up his uber-organized life, his softer, more playful side comes out to play and it was just awesome.
With some struggles, an epic eff-up and some seriously good groveling, An Accidental Date with a Billionaire had sweet romance, funny butt-heading, and sexy as hell shenanigans. While I was not completely blown away, it kept me smiling and I had a great time reading it.
