The Taming of the Billionaire
(Billionaires and Bridesmaids #2)
By Jessica Clare
The New York Times bestselling author of The Billionaire and the Virgin returns with a tale of Shakespearean-style seduction…
Edie’s an overbearing cat behaviorist who’s not big on people. Magnus is a newly-rich game developer who likes to be in control. When the two of them meet at Gretchen and Hunter’s masquerade engagement party, the loathing is mutual. Unfortunately for them—and everyone else—they’re in the wedding party together and must deal with each other for the next few months.
But when Magnus’s younger brother falls for Edie’s sister, he begs for his brother’s help in concocting a plan to win her over. If Magnus can keep the prickly Edie occupied, his brother will have time to woo Edie’s sister. Of course, Magnus isn’t interested in the slightest, but Edie is…intriguing. And stubborn. And smart. And sexy. And they might have more in common than they thought.
Before long, it becomes a challenge between the two of them to see who will be tamed first. But how’s Edie going to react when she finds out that Magnus is using her? And how’s Magnus going to handle the fact that he’s fallen for a cat lady?

I could not make myself like Edie at the beginning of this book. I was seriously about to throw my hands up and say NOPE! Ugh, I just can’t with her but continued reading because I kept thinking about the characters and I wanted to know what was going to happen. It’s a weird tic that I have. It was a train wreck that you have to watch happen at the beginning but it turns into a super sweet story at the end. The supporting cast makes me want to scream from all of the stupid but I’m all about some Magnus. LOL
Edie is a bonafide cat lady who had an accident that left her with a limp and added to her bitchy attitude rather than causing it. Magnus is a billionaire game developer who is all about that cash at that beginning of the book but morphs into something much deeper. The cats crack me up because it’s such an odd addition into the book but it works. Once Magnus and Edie start with sexy time, it’s all over with for me. It’s a constant tug of war between them and that just makes the panties explode.
This book may not be for everyone but I think even if you don’t LOVE it that most people would enjoy it.
