Dirty Billionaire
I've got a big dick and an even bigger bank account. That's pretty much where my bio ends.
Honestly, I don't need to say anything else. I've just sold 99% of women on going home with me.
Do I sound like an asshole to you?
That's because I am.
And guess what? It works for me just fine.
Or at least it did.
Until I met her.
Books talk about sparks flying. Fuck that shit. With her, it was like emergency flares mixed with jet fuel. Or maybe just straight up napalm.
Only one problem.
She wouldn't tell me her name or her number when she disappeared from the hotel room after the hottest fucking night of my life.
Now I've had a taste of unicorn pussy—the sweetest, rarest of all pussy—and I need it again.
So what's an asshole to do?
I took this problem to the street. A missed connection gone viral.
And when I find her? I'm keeping her.

If you love a dirty, dirty, alphahole of a hero with a streak of dominance and a sassy heroine, you're going to love Dirty Billionaire by Meghan March.

I really wasn't expecting to like this story as much as I did given some of the things my friend Bambi said when she was reading it, so I'm surprised by how much I got into it.

Creighton is a filthy, filthy guy and a complete alphahole. He's dominating, controlling and unapologetic and I love him for it. I also love his potty mouth, his very, very potty mouth. He can say naughty things to me anytime. There's not much depth to Creighton and for once, I find I don't mind because I'm so enthralled by what an alphahole he is. He's very much a "he sees, he wants, he takes" kind of guy and the way he goes about getting Holly is rather refreshing. I don't think I've ever read that in a book before and it speaks of incredible arrogance on his part. I'll probably hate him and hate living with him in real life, he'll probably be unbearable, but I do love reading about him.

Holly is great fun too. I was afraid she's be too much of a countrified hick, but she's not. She's rather naive and innocent in some respects, especially when faced with some of Creighton's debauchedness, but she's also sassy and extremely passionate about her career. I liked her a lot more than I thought I would. She's got great backbone and as domineering as Creighton is, I liked how she stood up for herself and what was important to her. She does something, which in my book would be unforgivable and a big no-no in other circumstances, but given how Creighton behaved I laughed and thought he probably deserved it. I was surprisingly way more okay with what she did than I thought I would be, especially considering Bambi asked me what I thought of it and I gave her an rather unequivocal "no way, not acceptable" response. Given the context with which what Holly did occurred, it was acceptable to me.

This installment ended with Creighton messing up something important to Holly. I'm looking forward to the next book and seeing him grovel for her forgiveness. I don't think he even realises he's messed up since their relationship is so new and they are both such independent people. It will be interesting to see if they learn to compromise.

    How is he going to explain this one away to girlfriend Holly Wix and his fans?
    “That two-timin’ son of a . . .”
    I hiss under my breath as I stare at the headline—and the compromising picture accompanying it—splashed in vivid color across the front page of the gossip rag displayed prominently in the checkout line at my supermarket. For the second time in two months, it’s a picture of my “boyfriend” locked in an unmistakably passionate embrace with another woman, except this time she’s wearing a giant black strap-on.
    The edges of the paper crumple in my sweaty grip, and I fight the urge to tear it to shreds, along with every copy sitting on the rack in front of me.
    He’s going to destroy my career before it even has a chance to become a reality.
    One year, they said. One year in this joke of a “relationship” and I’d earn my stripes, be all set in the world of country music. Judge me all you want for agreeing, but when your brand-new record label puts something like that in the contract that will jet you out of the backwoods town you’re dying to escape, you don’t ask questions. You sign on the dotted line.
    But reality is a cold slap in the face, and some days it hits you when you’re standing in line at the grocery store. What happens when they finally catch JC with a guy? His habit of swinging both ways, but preferring men to women, is about to become the worst-kept secret in Nashville.
    I’m Holly Wix, winner of a make-me-a-star TV show, and handpicked by the label to buoy JC’s once-impressive but now flagging career. It didn’t seem like a big deal when they slipped it into my contract in the beginning. What starry-eyed girl wouldn’t be thrilled to have her name linked to a country star?
    Instead of the one-way ticket to stardom I naively expected, I’m becoming the butt of every industry joke faster than the guys back home can spend their paycheck on twelve-packs and scratch-offs. But I’ve got one shot at keeping this dream career alive, and honestly, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to save it. So this situation with JC needs to get settled before things spiral further out of control.
