Became a tech billionaire by his twentieth birthday. Has been in a relationship with me for 3 years.
Has proposed 4 times. Been rejected 4 times.

Cuts grass when he’s not banging housewives. Good with his hands, his mouth, and his cock. Has been pursued relentlessly by me for almost 2 years, whether he knows it or not.

Go ahead. Judge me. You have no idea what my love entails.

If you think you’ve heard this story before, trust me – you haven’t.

About the book:

Layana is a hot, sexy, smart heiress of her family fortune that is bored with her picture perfect image. She can’t stand it anymore, to always be and do what is “expected” of her. Everything but her true self. She needs something that will bring some fun into her life. Someone who will rock her world while she also rocks his and then go separate ways.

That someone happened to be Brant. A young, hardworking, smoking hot billionaire that only has work, work and more work on his mind since his childhood. It is time to let go of all the responsibility and add some fun and play to his life.

The two hit if off big time but can’t seem to leave each other alone as they both planned from the start. Instead they end up in a very satisfying and happy relationship. But there is one little problem, Brant’s aunt who is also his right hand in his business is all but happy about Layana being in his life. She wants her gone. She wants Brant to be on his own. She claims to only care for his own good. Is there a secret we don’t know of? Why isn’t she allowing Brant to choose his own way and be happy? Will Brant and Layana survive what life has in store for them? Will Layana’s own misstep destroy them?

My review:


I have no idea how I got across to this book but thank you universe for bringing it to me! Every single emotion I have came to life while reading this book.

It starts of like many other books. Girl meets boy, they are attracted to each other, they have awesome sex and that’s it. Everything else in this book is SO DIFFERENT from everything I have ever read before. I was really cheering for Brant and Layana to make it work. I was their number 1 fan.
So I was pretty angry when his aunt tried to push her out of his life when it was clear that is not what he desired. BUT here comes that BIG but… When Layana did curtain things and it was looking like she was to break Brant’s heart I started believing his aunt was right. The bitch would hurt him. Off with her head.

The whole story had secrets all over it, just when I thought I was finally to get some explanation and answers to them, no it just got worse and had me wondering even more.  I can clearly say this book PISSED me off like no other. I was so angry my mind was boiling over and I had to pause reading it otherwise my kindle might have paid the price!

It was making no sense to me. Why oh why was she doing that? Why destroy something beautiful for a fling, for something that didn’t even mattered? Why cause trouble and heartbreak for someone else along the way? At this point I wished I could jump into the book and strangle someone. But then in end FINALLY things were falling into place and I realized why things were happening like they did. Why the characters acted like they did. My heart was pleased at last.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this plot, the twist that almost killed me. The way it was written was real rough and unexpected. Do you like drama? Tension? Passion? Twists? Well you have found yourself the right book :) Definitely worth your while!!!!
