Can't Buy Me Love
It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.
Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .

book review: 6 ” Tarzan” stars
Before I start this review for this tremendous book, I have to say something to this amazing author;
Mrs. Jessica Lemmon,
you have NO. IDEA what you just did to me writing Tag’s story! Since I finished it, my feet can’t seem to touch the ground. So, THANK YOU for that!!!
And now that this is our of the way, it’s time to lay down every feeling, thought and whatever else this book caused in me. And damn if they weren’t a lot!
The Billionaire Next Door is the the 2nd book in the Billionaire Bad Boys series. Its story is how Tag Crane, the second brother in the Crane clan, fell in love with his temporary neighbor, Rachel Foster. Intriguing theme line, right? Oh yes, I KNOW! The neighbors-turned-into-lovers theme always delivers juicy, steamy, magnificent love stories. And this one here is definitely all the above and then some more. Its beginning is quite simple: Rachel is moving temporarily in the same building Tag lives – and owns – in favor of one of her friends. And then, cause of a dog, they start getting closer and spend more and more time together. As for the unfolding from that point, I will let you discover and fall for it on your own because it would be a felony if spoil it even little.
I really don’t know which brother – until now – I’m more gone for. Both had me, in their own way, trembling all over the place because of the shivers they were giving me. And DON’T doubt that! You WILL GET shivers! Personally, that’s preplanned already every time I read Jessica’s books. But back to the Cranes. In the first book, we met the serious, focused, goal-achiever, manwhore-turned-into-greatest-Cubic-victim Reese Crane who met his match on the only woman he never thought about. Now, we meet the easy-going, funny, determined, stubborn Tag Crane who is about to get a intimate with the term “being head over heels in love” . And since Life and Irony go together most of the time and looooove to have fun and make things more interesting, they put into a serious relationship two relationship-phobic people. Ironically funny, right?
The player, as it turned out, wasn’t playing her.
The way Tag and Rachel go around each other denying to acknowledge the depth of their relationship while doing everything they can to make it deeper is beyond entertaining to watch. Well, read. Since the beginning, they were fighting an already lost battle against their instant, intense, incredible attraction and a love which was waiting its turn to make its existence known. But thank god for each one’s instincts. While their mind had shut down and locked tight any possibility of them being something more, their hearts was carrying on doing theirs own thing and unconsciously pushing them to do things that scream “I’m so damn in love with you!” Until they reach the turning point where Tag gets his arse handed to him by his friends and finally seeing the light and truth. And how he decides to repair the damage and take back his girl is beyond swooning. I was so damn jealous of Rach in the last scene!
If she was fighting, he was willing to pull on his gloves and climb in the ring with her.
Honestly, I’m a total blind-goner over Jessica Lemmon. Since reading Fighting for Devlin, I give little consideration to the blurb of each of her new books. I only read it so to have an idea what it’s about and not to decide if I want to read it or not. Her books are a total no-brainer for me. Each time I come across a new one or even an old one, I dive head first into it because I have not doubt over being nothing less than amazing. Each hero of hers I meet, I can’t stop wanting more and more. She really has a way with words and with putting her characters into situations that makes their true personalities be shown. As for this series, I love the fact that she doesn’t write an Epilogue chapter, having me on my toes and increase ten-fold my eagerness to read not only the next story, but also the To Be Continued of each previous couple which is underlined with the end of the last chapter.
Eli Crane can’t get here soon enough!!! My hands are getting twitchy and greedy to read him and fall hard for him as I did spectacularly and monumentally with his brothers!!!!
