The Billionaire Next Door (Billionaire Bad Boys #2)
Can't Buy Me Love
It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.
Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .

The second Crane billionaire has fallen under love's spell! I stumbled across this series by chance when I was cruising the web for new stories to try. I'd never read anything by this author so I was a little skeptical about it, but figured what the heck, mainly because the covers were so compelling. Taggert "Tag" Crane is definitely a died-in-the-wool Bachelor and it was hard to believe that he would find a woman to drag him out of his shell and steal his heart, but with a little help from a sweet great dane named Adonis, Rachel manages to break him down. Instant lust and want is something that Tag understands, but when he begins to feel more for Rachel, the fears and excuses kick in and he begins to unintentionally break Rachel's heart a piece at a time. I loved getting to know Rachel, a woman that has taken her life in her own hands and finally decided that she will leave behind the unhealthy influences in her life and live a little. Once she gets to know Tag, it's impossible to resist his allure, not just physically, but emotionally as well. This story was filled with laughs, tears, sweetness and heartbreak to go along with the sexy and sinful Tag, and I am truly glad to have had the chance to read it. I am dying to read Eli's book soon and know it will be great, no matter the challenges he now faces in his life. I am truly amazed by how much I enjoyed this story, despite the clichéd billionaire playboy and the down on her luck heroine, and am happy to say I have added Ms. Jessica to my watch list. If you like a story filled with passion, a sexy playboy losing his heart, or even a sweet dog pulling two people together, you will love Billionaire Next Door, and if you haven't read book one, Billionaire Bachelor, then I suggest you run out and grab both so you are ready for the next story as Eli overcomes all odds to find himself a mate as wonderful and awesome as his brothers have.
