Title: The Billionaire Game
Series: The Billionaire Game #1
Author: Lila Monroe
Release Date: May 4, 2015
Sexy playboy billionaire Asher Young goes through girlfriends like he goes through bottles of Moët. I would know — he brings them all to get fitted for my luxury lingerie designs. I guess that's one way to avoid awkward conversations when they find another girl’s panties in his Maserati.
Now he has a proposition for me: he’ll invest in my design business, and I’ll finally open the boutique of my dreams.
There’s just one problem: I can’t stop kissing him. And he looks REALLY good naked.
Make that two problems….

“I can have my lawyers draw up the contract this afternoon: I’ll front the cash in exchange for minority percentage of ownership. Are you in?”
He looked especially kissable in that moment, all hopeful and earnest and excited, and a tiny bit vulnerable as he waited for my answer. It was hard to remember all the times he had made me so mad, hard to remember that there was anything about this man that anyone could find infuriating.
There was a little whisper of worry in the back of my mind that said I still didn’t know who the real Asher was: was it the sweet man who reassured me that he believed in me, and joked about his own failings? Or the condescending, flirty asshole who had three girlfriends but still couldn’t keep his sly winks and hands to himself?
I looked around the store and as the anticipation bubbled up inside me, I realized that it didn’t matter. This whole venture was a risk, especially with Asher, but there was no way I was going to say no. Not when this was what I had always wanted.
“Okay,” I said out loud. “You’ve got a deal.”
Now, all I had to do was make it through this business partnership without killing him, kissing him, or both.
Kate Jameson is an aspiring lingerie designer who believes that every woman should feel sexy and special in lingerie. Kate happens to meet Asher Young when he accompanies his latest fling for a lingerie fitting. Asher is sexy, cocky, and intelligent and Kate finds herself instantly attracted to him. His cocky demeanor works against him though.
Asher finds himself liking what he sees in Kate. He also likes her designs which leads to a business proposition. Kate, who wants to make it on her own, initially refuses his help until she needs it.
When a business meeting turns sour, can their working relationship be saved and will they cross the line from business into pleasure?
The Billionaire Game is a quick read but witty and humorous with a side of sexy. I absolutely loved Kate's character. A head-strong, spirited woman, Kate isn't afraid to speak her mind. I loved her ramblings and rants - spoken out loud or just thoughts - and found myself laughing a few times at them and at the situations she gets herself into. Kate is the very definition of what I look for in a female lead. She is strong, but has her own vulnerabilities that readers can relate to.
Asher on the other hand is one of those characters you find yourself wanting to hate but they eventually endear themselves to you and you find yourself genuinely liking their character. Asher comes off arrogant and cocky, but you can see something hiding beneath the surface just waiting to be discovered and you can see it come out at some points in the story. At times I even found myself narrowing my eyes in disappoint at the way Kate treats him.
Asher and Kate are the very definition of couples attracting, but no one can deny the scorching hot chemistry between these two.
Another thing I loved about the book is how unique it is. It's original, it's fresh, and it's fun. There is humor but there's also sexiness. I'm looking forward to seeing where Lila Monroe takes the characters from here and anxiously awaiting the next part of this series.
