review: The Billionaire's Demands by Addison Fox


Title: The Billionaire's Demands
Author: Addison Fox
Series: Boardrooms and Billionaires
Release Date: February 10, 2014

Booth Harrison has made a habit of getting what he wants, be it a new addition to the Harrison media empire, or a better relationship with his half-brother. But meeting his brother’s new sister-in-law, Camryn McBride, poses a new challenge. The savvy CFO of McBride Media has a brain he wants to pick…and a body he needs to claim.

Camyrn has spent the past few years helping to rebuild her family’s magazine company, focusing on that rather than her disastrous personal life. But when Booth Harrison invites her to be the keynote speaker at a sales conference in Hawaii, she’s tempted to combine business with pleasure.

But meeting the billionaire’s demands won’t be easy, because someone doesn’t want a merger between them to happen.


Thoughts on The Billionaire's Demands

Although The Billionaire's Demands is the third in the Boardrooms and Billionaires Series, it's able to stand alone very well.  Focusing on the McBride sisters, it pulls the past relationships in with the new one between middle sister Camryn and Booth Harrison, brother-in-law to Camryn's sister.  

Camryn is a hardworking, career driven woman and even though she's had her eye on Booth for awhile, she's afraid to make it "awkward" between the families when things go bad in her mind.  Booth has no worries and when he decides win her over he goes big, but slowly.  It's quite the slow burn and while the story didn't really hit its stride until the last quarter I enjoyed the build.  The sister relationships really drive the backstory well and their banter back and forth is fun and relatable.  

The Billionaire's Demands is actually the first of Addison Fox's books I've read but I liked her writing style and plan on going through the rest of her series soon.  It's a sweet and happy read and keeps you wondering without all the crazy ups and downs.  

about the author

Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of one with The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen.) Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Auel while writing a paper at the library in the seventh grade. Although not a classic romance, Ayla and Jondalar’s love story moved her firmly into the romance section and she hasn’t looked back!
Addison writes paranormal and contemporary romance for NAL, category-length romantic suspense for Harlequin Romantic Suspense and category-length contemporary romance for Entangled Indulgence.
Addison lives in Dallas. She loves to get email from readers.
