Be careful what you wish for . . .
Once upon a time there was a totally ordinary boy who fell for a cold, beautiful prince. Only it's not a fairy tale, it's my life. The prince is a billionaire called Caspian Hart. And we're trying super hard to live happily ever after.
He's everything I want, need, and can't resist: a man who looks like a god and bangs like the devil. Except he's still got his rules and he's still got his secrets . . .
But if there's one thing Caspian's taught me it's that you should never settle for less than you're worth. And I'm worth his trust. I have to show him that I see him. That I'm not afraid of his passion, or his power, or his past. And that I won't settle for less than everything.
I have no idea how I’m supposed to feel about How to Blow it with a Billionaire, or even the series. Alexis Hall is a fantastic writer and so painfully smart. I worry that he’s so smart that he’s kind of making fun of me with these books to my face, but I’m not smart enough to get it. I feel a little like he’s using clichés and over-used tropes on purpose to sort of make fun of readers who might have enjoyed books involving shades of a certain color. So maybe I’m playing right into his hands, but you know what? I kind of love these books so far and I’ve decided regardless of intention, I’m okay with it.
I love Arden. Most of the time I love Caspian, and sometimes I hate him. Most of the time I hate Ellery, and sometimes I love her. These characters are all complex and interesting in their own ways and I’ve enjoyed their story so far. I’m troubled that this book ends on yet another cliffhanger, though not surprised and I’m anxiously anticipating the final book in the series to see where Arden and Caspian’s story ends up.
Their journey has been a bit of a rollercoaster and I’ve enjoyed watching them grow together. I think that Caspian is a tad melodramatic and has a way about him that complicates things that don’t have to be complicated. I’m hoping there are parts of his story we haven’t discovered yet that will explain some of his behaviors and idiosyncrasies so we can understand him a little better.
