3.5 stars This is one of those books that made me go, Hmm I enjoyed it quite well enough The dialogue between the hero and heroine was on point It had a lot of sexy times and there were laugh out loud moments which made this a joy to read Yet somehow something is keeping me from giving this a full 4 stars My problem for one is Edie To say that Edie is a bitch is putting it mildly I liked that she wasn t your usually sweet heroine and that she was bitchy but it also made me dislike her Yeah, I kn [...]

This was cruising for a two star if for no other reason than two of the MOST IRRITATING CHARACTERS EVER the siblings of the hero and heroine Bianca and her big flirty eyes, baby voice, smothering sisterhood as well manipulations needs to be staked to an ant hill The H s brother is not much better.The story was redeemed, but about that later.Essentially the H s brother has a crush on Bianca and wants the H to distract Edie, Bianca s older and bitchier sister Why a grown woman needs to be babysat [...]
I have to say I am a sucker for a Billionaire book Hey, things only get better with cash, right This one has all of the makings of a typical billionaire book except that there are many humorous parts that are so totally kooky, you just have to shake your head.I have never read this author before, but because it had the billionaire aspect to it, I was hoping for an excellent read I was not disappointed This book takes a somewhat typical storyline and combines 2 totally mis matched people together [...]
The heroine was a cat lady fist pump Hell fucking yeah The Taming of the Billionaire was fun, sexy, full of pussies of the feline variety of course you dirty bird , had a fabulous heroine and one sexy beast of a hero that was a gaming geek to boot Now For a while there I was thinking quite a few people in this book needed to have surprise headline making bus mows them down accidents When I finished itI felt much the same lol Thankfully the hero redeemed himself and no longer needed to go splat S [...]

Gabi s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsThis had to be one of my favorite Billionaire books from Jessica Clare I absolutely fell in love with Magnus and Edie Edie is so sharp tongued and Magnus is so brash the mash and clash so perfectly Their banter is never to snarky of forced but perfectly matched I also adored the way Ms Clare had their relationship bloom, there was no insta love or even insta like it all had to grow through normal channels and a little coercion If you want a Bi [...]
Mixed feelings about this one So, the stuff with the cats hit my sweet spot And it s everywhere in this book That alone may warrant a reread It just was so comforting and real and so much about cats and tending to their needs and loving them and I just needed that so much The disability rep was complicated for me There was a lot that felt so real and resonated so much And I love grumpy curmudgeonly disabled characters, just love them, and as this one was a loose adaptation of The Taming of the S [...]
5 Crazy Cat Lover Stars Cute read about a billionaire who falls for a crazy beautiful cat lady Magnus is a game developer and is also part of Hunter s groomsmen That is where he met Edie and where our story begins Magnus groaned, pressing kisses to her mouth I love you, too Come back to me We ll fill the apartment with cats and frighten everyone we know with our pet hoarding.
I liked the angst when heroine found out that Hero initially asked her out as a favor to his bro to keep her busy and let the bro date her sis I liked that the Hero grovelled and his big gesture was genuine I also liked that the Hero was not described as super handsome but the heroine found him attractive especially when he smiles.
Cats climbed over her, trying to get comfortable on her crowded bed There were cats on each side of her leg, one curled up by her head, and one currently kneading her breast and purring as she absently stroked its fur.A cat feline her up see what I did there I don t have a condom on me Then pull out before you come Uh huh, the cat encounter seems safer Oh, I want to see your cats, she told him breathlessly I ll show them to you, on one condition, he said, I get to play with your breasts while yo [...]
One quote from the hero about the heroine wearing lipstick is all you need to understand the romance you ll experience by reading this book just that little bit of color brightened her mediocre features.

This is a loose adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew Edie, the shrew, is an animal behaviorist, helping people with their cats It doesn t pay well, and she adopts almost every unwanted cat she sees, so she is practically a stereotypical cat lady But as she sees it, Just because girls happened to like cats didn t mean they were hideous unloveable creatures Because of a ski accident, she has a busted up knee, so she wears orthopedic shoes and limps and has to sit and stretch her leg a lot Her bea [...]

You know how there are cat people and dog people Well, I firmly belong to the latter category However, my liking for Jessica Clare s writing trumps my dislike for felines, so I swallowed my misgivings about The Taming of the Billionaire s storyline and gave it a read Sad to say, this didn t quite hit my sweet spot but not for the obvious reason.If you consider the Shakespeare reference in the blurb, you might figure out that The Taming of the Billionaire took its cues from The Bard s The Taming [...]
