"Lila Carmichael is a good girl, a high-achieving academic, punctual to a fault, unfailingly conscientious - and embarrassingly inexperienced. After graduating from Princeton, Lila moves to New York City and begins her job search. Innocent and naïve, she is swept away by an uncharacteristic bloom of total abandon as soon as she meets the tall, dark-eyed CEO of Wolfe Enterprises. Under Alexander's potent influence, Lila undergoes a thorough transformation from demure virgin to lusty goddess in just two days. Given her upbringing, it's only natural that Lila would be attracted to such a pinnacle of stability, but as emotion and lust entwine, she begins to question the motives behind her covetous, hedonistic desires.
Alexander Wolfe needs a new assistant to help him run his publishing empire. One résumé in particular catches his eye and he decides to interview the candidate one-on-one in his private penthouse office. When a green-eyed goddess walks in, Alexander, for the first time in his life, finds himself powerless to resist. The difficulties of his past ensure that his protective instincts are fiercely attuned, and Lila's vulnerabilities, combined with her nubile body and voracious new appetites, only succeed in ensnaring Alexander past the point of no return.
Set in New York and Paris, Lila and Alexander's connection is a whirlwind of lust, love, jealousy and obsession. Will they find their happily ever after?"

3.5 PANTY MELTING STARS!
Holy Crap! This book was STEAMY and HOT! Billionaire revolves around the sex between Lila and Alexander. The story is written in alternating POV’s between Lila and Alexander. Sure this book lacks some character development, but when you pick up an erotica, most of the time this aspect isn’t the main focus anyway. If you are looking for a raunchy, dirty, sexy read to occupy your evening, this may be perfect for you.
The version I read has all parts (1-7) combined into one story, so unlike most of the short and sweet erotic books, this one will keep you reading for hours. Ms. Jones has a way with her wording that just draws you right into the story. She writes good quality sex scenes. One encounter in particular that occurred while the couple was in Paris will definitely stick with me for awhile.
The only issue I have with Billionaire is the fact that Lila, a barely 20ish virgin, just jumped right into this intense, uninhibited sexual escapade so very easily without even blinking an eye. She practically slept with him within the first five minutes of meeting him! This story also starts off very ’50 Shades’ like and I was hoping for a little more depth within the plot but overall I was satisfied and enjoyed reading the rest of the book.
I recommend Billionaire to readers that like Erotic stories revolving around rich, powerful and dominant men that are successful with capturing a timid, inexperienced, needy woman.
I give Billionaire, 3.5 PANTY MELTING STARS!
