Joseph Anderson has decided it’s time for his three successful sons to find brides. Joseph wants grandchildren to fill his mansion, and he wants them immediately. His eldest son, Lucas, is successful in all areas of his life, except love, and Joseph begins matchmaking. He finds Amy Harper and deems her the perfect daughter-in-law. He just needs to get her and Lucas to both realize they’re made for each other.
Lucas Anderson is wealthy, sexy, and stubborn. He has no desire to have any woman enter his life, causing chaos, or using his family’s name. Many women have tried, and he’s been successful in finding out who they are beneath their false smiles.
Amy Harper was raised in tragic circumstances and doesn’t like pampered, rich men who have been handed everything with a silver spoon. She spent years finishing her education and then received a job with the Anderson Corporation. She instantly doesn’t like her incredibly sexy boss, who is arrogant and thinks every woman should fall at his feet.
When Amy becomes pregnant after one reckless night of passion, she’s scared he’ll take the baby and run. Lucas is demanding, and used to getting his way, but Amy has just the right amount of spark to ignite his fuse, and challenges him each step of the way.
Lucas’s father, Joseph, and his brothers Alex and Mark, offer laughter, love, and support. With the love of Lucas’s family, who aren’t only rich and successful, but also kind and giving, Amy starts to realize that being wealthy doesn’t make or break a man, and starts to picture the happily ever after she never believed in for herself.
Read on for my thoughts on The Billionaire Wins The Game. No true spoilers, promise.
There is really no need for me to give you a teaser lead-in to this review as most of what I’d tell you is already in the Cover Description of this story. So that leaves me clear to tell you about the emotional story and how I reacted to it.
I absolutely love and adore Joseph Anderson and want to adopt him as my Santa Claus – like grandfather. He’s a billionaire, a successful businessman, and a determined matchmaker for his sons. And a force to be reckoned with.
Lucas and Amy work well together as a couple. There is definitely the spark and sizzle that good couples need to make me care one bit about their future together. And let’s be real here, there are times during this story that Lucas comes off as well, an ass. A rich and powerful one but definitely a man who expects his life to run a certain way and he gets all alpha male when it doesn’t. He’s accustomed to having women fall at his feet, seeing not much more than his and his family’s assets and not the human man. So, while the attraction he feels toward Amy is very real, he’s going to fight it every step of the way because he cannot see beyond his own arrogance.
Amy is a sweetheart, but do not let the outer beauty fool you into thinking she’s willing to be walked over. Nope, not gonna happen. She has struggled her entire life to better herself and no man is going to boss her around or tell her what she’s going to do. Lucas is a sexy, attractive man and she’d have to be blind not to see the sparks flying between them. When Amy and Lucas give in to that attraction, one night changes everything.
The Billionaire Wins The Game is a fun and charming story. I enjoy Lucas and Amy’s story very much. The secondary characters are warm and interesting – look for the other brothers to have their own stories as well. Joseph is not done matchmaking.
The Billionaire Wins The Game is available in paperback, audio and for the Kindle
