Title: The Billionaire’s New Toy
Author: Ava Sterling
Publisher/Year: Red Lace Publishing 5/11/16
Length: 27 Pages
Claire wants to land the sale of the year, supplying all bedding materials for one of the largest luxury hotel chains in the country. The only thing standing in her way…is Connor Brenton.
A self-made Billionaire, Mr. Brenton is the type to go after what he wants. Now what he wants is Claire, but she’s more interested in padding her sales numbers than an erotic connection. At the sales appointment, it will be decided who gets what they want first.
I’m a fan of this story – even more than the others that I’ve read recently by Ms Ava Sterling. What we have here is one of my favorite sub segments of the genre – the Alpha powerful man, and the sexy female who thinks that it’s her body that gets her what she wants until she realizes that she truly has the power because of how she carries herself.
What’s sweet about this story is that even though it’s a novella in length, we get an opportunity to see that there was a history between these two characters – a past shared experience and that’s what makes it feel more robust than others that I’ve enjoyed. While Claire clearly has her mind set on keeping her job and that means getting a sale out of a very successful yet handsome hotel owner, what she gets when she makes the attempt is so much more than she bargained for. Mr Benton has his mind set on success – and he is always successful. Will he be in this instance as well?
There’s a sweetness to this story while all the flirtation and heat is underneath. Mr Benton plays with Claire’s emotions and psyche which is a fun twist and the question from them will become how much will Claire bend, what will happen to her job, and what will happen to her. He’s skilled, capable of getting what he wants, when he wants it, and can she handle it? Very good question!
I wish we actually had more of this story as it has feelings of Sylvia Day and J Kenner among other authors when i read it.
