Stranded With a Billionaire by Jessica Clare ~ Review


The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success – at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love…

Billionaire Logan Hawkings needs a vacation.

He’s had a rough time after the death of his father and the betrayal of his fiancée. But with a visit to a recent business acquisition—a private island resort in the Bahamas—he has a chance to mend his broken heart.

When a hurricane blows in, a misplaced passport and a stalled elevator bring Logan together with an unusual woman named Bronte. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met—down to earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato.

She also has no clue that he’s rich…

Bronte Dawson, a waitress from the Midwest, is stranded with the hotel’s domineering yet sexy manager Logan. What’s the harm in a little fling when it’s just the two of them, alone in paradise? But after several steamy island nights in Logan’s arms, Bronte’s ready to give her heart—and her body—to the man in charge.

But she soon discovers there’s more to Logan than he’s told her…a billion times more. Now, Bronte’s caught in a whirlwind affair with one of the world’s most powerful men. But can their love endure their differences or will it all just blow over?

Love. Sex. Money. Want more? Look out for the next steamy title in the Billionaire Boys Club series from Jessica Clare, coming from InterMix.


I was intrigued from the title alone.  Why does this not happen to me? I want to be stranded with Logan! This is the first installment of The Billionaire Boys Club series and it is a great start to the series! I was sucked in right from the start of the this story. 4 stars

The story starts exactly as the title says, Bronte a young waitress and Logan the sexy billionaire get stranded on an island during a hurricane.  Bronte mistakes Logan for the manager of the hotel when actually he is the owner and he does not correct her.  Over the next couple of days they experience an "island fling" as Bronte looks at it but Logan has other plans.  When they are rescued and Bronte learns the truth about who Logan is she is furious! Logan is not the man she fell for on the island, in real life he is arrogant, rich and gets what he wants and it turns Bronte off. Bronte still finds him sexy though and can't deny the chemistry between the two of them. Bronte is not like the typical girl Logan is used to dating, she's simple and smart and not after his money.  Making things work now that they are off the island and in real life, is not as easy as it seems and Logan has his work cut out for him if he wants Bronte in his life for good.

Overall, Stranded with a Billionaire was a fun, sexy, romantic read and I can't wait to read more of this series! The author introduces us to Gretchen who is Bronte's strong, independent roommate and Hunter who is Logan's mysterious billionaire friend and their story will be next and I can't wait to see how it plays out! I think Hunter is a billionaire who will have to work hard to earn Gretchen's affections!
