Melissa's Review:

One Night with a Billionaire is book six in the Billionaire Boys Club series. I've been naughty and haven't read these in order at all so I can firmly say these can be read as standalone novels. I had to grab this while I was at a local signing though since it's about a billionaire hottie and a plus sized make up artist!

Kylie is a plus sized makeup artist on the hunt for a new job. When she lands one with a pop star named Daphne she's excited to go back on tour so she can support her Grandmother and pay the bills. The pop star doesn't make life easy on her though, she's a junkie and dubs her fat Marilyn and the name sticks throughout the story unfortunately. We quickly enter the romance aspect when sparks fly between Kylie and Cade Archer (aka billionaire hottie) while he's waiting backstage at one of the concerts to see his childhood friend Daphne. Things don't go quite as planned for Cade and he winds up seeing Daphne's true colors so he's set on moving on and his strong attraction to Kylie makes up his mind. Their long distance romance blossoms via texts and the occasional night together while Kylie is moving from city to city while on tour. But don't you know Daphne will throw a fit of epic proportion when she finds out.

One Night With a Billionaire was a we shouldn't be together but I can't help liking you type read. I typically enjoy that trope, but this one did have a few issues for me. One of the main one issues was the leading lady being so insecure about her size. I personally wouldn't be so worried about my thighs and such around a guy that is clearly attracted to me. That probably varies from person to person though so it's not a huge deal. There were also a few inconsistencies I noticed that made me double back and make sure I read it correctly. All in all though this was a nice escape from reality. If you enjoy Contemporary Romance with billionaires I think you'd enjoy this book.

  1. Great review! This sounds like a likable read but I think the leading lady being insecure would bother me a little too.

  3. Yea, I think some worry might be realistic, but too much is just overwhelming and ends up not making sense. Still, sounds like a decent read and an entertaining one. :)

  4. Ah yes, the curvy woman novel. Since there are many who are insecure about their size even when there's a man who clearly likes them, I can see this working. But it would depend on the reader.
