Bronte Dawson is having an extremely bad day, a hurricane is blowing in and the island where she is vacationing is being evacuated. She returns to her hotel room to search for her selfish friend’s passport and then ends up stuck in the elevator with the hotel manager… or so she thinks.
Logan Hawking, is part of a secret brotherhood of billionaires sworn to succeed, based on the tip from another member he is on the island considering an investment opportunity. He, the billionaire in question, is disillusioned, his father with whom he was not close has recently died and he is still recovering from the end of his engagement to a gold digger it is just par for the course when he gets in the ill fated elevator on his way to the helipad to be evacuated.
I enjoyed Stranded With a Billionaire (Billionaire Boys Club #1), although I am skeptical as to the veracity of the existence of actual brotherhoods consisting of several unmarried eligible billionaires, that being said I would like to believe. Jessica Clare pseudonym for Jill Myles author of the popular Succubus Diaries series has penned an enjoyable story with an intelligent heroine and an appealing love interest who just wants to be appreciated and not just for his pocketbook.
This is the first book in a six book series with Beauty and the Billionaire coming out in July. I am particularly looking forward to the next offering in this series as Beauty and the Beast stories are one of my all time favorites. I think the most appealing thing about Stranded was its simplicity and that may not sound like a positive but it is. The story was free of unnecessary overwrought displays or situations and the characters were likeable and with just enough detail about the supporting cast to make you wonder what Jessica Clare has in store for her five remaining billionaires.
