Besting the Billionaire by Alison Aimes
My Rating: 4 Stars
Release Date: January 15, 2018
Lily may walk and talk like a Southern piece of fluff, but she’s been underestimated before. She’s determined to succeed—and no entitled, arrogant asshole, especially the too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good-kind, is going to get in her way.
Oil meet water. Gasoline meet spark. It’s all out war as these two enemies go toe-to-toe in an ugly, take no prisoners battle to prove they’re the right choice to be CEO of the same company. All too soon playing dirty in the boardroom leads to playing even dirtier in the dark. It’s destined to end in personal and professional disaster. So why the hell can’t they stop?
I had not previously read anything by Alison Aimes but I do love a good office romance; this also has elements of the forbidden love aspect too. Lily and Alexi are rivals in the fight for Lily’s late husband’s company. Lily wants it because she has fought her entire life to have respect and Alexi wants it to fulfill a promise he made to his pseudo-mother. Neither one of them were ready for the chemistry between them.
I loved the characters in this book; Lily is this strong independent woman who prefers to handle everything on her own and Alexi is this stubborn protective alpha man who finds himself caring more than he had planned. It was a fairly quick read because once I got into the story I was hooked; I had to know who was going to come out on top and how were Alexi and Lily going to handle their attraction. I loved how the tension built in this book and the conclusion was the perfect ending I think. If you haven’t read this yet, I recommend it & give it 4 stars! It’s available today – go get yourself a copy!
