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 . . 

“Why is it you look like you’re thinking something sinister?” he asked, that eyebrow arcing higher. “And don’t lie to me, Dimples. I have a sixth sense.” She watched his slow smile, white teeth appearing as his trimmed beard parted. Her nether regions buzzed like she’d sat on a vibrating phone.
“I’m surprised . . .” she started, feeling daring. Must be the Kona coffee.
“Because I expected you to induct me into the Mile High Club by now. This is my first private flight.” She looked at him through her lashes, her coy smile in place.
Tag wore an all-out grin, which made her inordinately pleased. Where she was concerned, he wasn’t immune. And she liked that. A lot.
“Excuse me.” Smoothly, he shut his laptop, stood, and walked from cabin to cockpit.
Okay. That was interesting. She hadn’t expected him to leave. Maybe she didn’t have the same power over him as he had over her.
She turned to look out the window, but the nighttime landscape was nothing but blackness. She imagined a sea of clouds and blue skies once the sun rose, anticipating being someplace where the high was above freezing. She wondered what the temperature was on—
“Let’s go.” Her hand was snatched a moment later as Tag pulled her out of her seat and led her to the bedroom.
“Wait,” she said through her laughter as she hustled after him. “What are you doing?”
In the bedroom, he released her, closed the door, and whipped off his shirt. She gasped, her eyes eating up his tanned muscles and bulky arms.
“Making you a member.” He caught the back of her head in his hand and kissed her. She melted beneath his touch. She was hopelessly attracted to him. Just an absolute goner.
When she caught a breath of air, she said, “Where did you go?”
“Told the pilot to take the long way.”
“There’s a longer way to Hawaii?”
“There is now.”




 My Thoughts
Taggart Crane has no idea what to make of the beautiful blond spitfire, with flashing eyes and the most adorable dimples in existence.  When he goes downstairs to soothe his neighbor's anxious Great Dane.  Only to be greeted by her very sleep rumpled self.

Rachel Foster is a woman looking to find her piece of solid ground.  After a two year relationship ends leaving her without the man that she trusted with her heart, and the job that she loved.

With her best friend and current roommate coming ever closer to her 'happily...' with her special someone.  Rachael knows that she has to strike out on her own...and soon.  Babysitting the loveable companion of one of her favorite regulars from the bar where she works.  Just happens to be one of the ways that she goes about doing that.
For now!

Jessica Lemmon is shooting for the romantic Trifecta with her Billionaire Bad Boys series.  And this reviewer can say without the slightest hesitation, that if she keeps writing with a fraction the heart, passion, and fun found between these pages. She and her readers will cross the love story finish line winners every time.

Taggart Crane is that perfect example of quiet strength and deep intelligence that can often be over looked.  Especially if, like Mr. Crane, one is used to being overlooked.  Or worse, being valued for what is on the surface.  But Rachel's ability to see past the hunky package, to the man inside proves the perfect foil to this sensitive and misunderstood man's defenses.

It seems that this story is dishing out lessons about love all the way around.  For Rachel, 1+1 definitely seems to = "you're worth the risk".  As Tag endeavors to let this strong and confident lady into his world and his heart.

This book is so well written that there is not one page, line, or word that one would dare miss.  The pacing is a dream, and the transitions in mood, emotional depth, and plot development are seamless.
The steaminess of the love scenes is enhanced by the ease of the playful rapport that Tag and his lady establish early on.  Making their romance read as nothing less than authentic.

In short, The Billionaire Next Door is a story that readers will love to love.

Reviewer's Note:  This book is the second of a companion romantic series.  As such it may be read in any order within said series.
