He’s a powerful billionaire CEO who built the family business into an empire. The money doesn’t matter to him, but the company is his life. And then his eccentric mother wills it all to her tiny dog.
I’m Vicky, the dog whisperer. (Not really, but that’s what my elderly neighbor always says.) When she dies, she surprises everybody by leaving a corporation worth billions to her dog, Smuckers. With me as his spokesperson.
Suddenly I go from running my Etsy store to sitting in an elegant Wall Street boardroom with Smuckers in my lap. And my neighbor’s son, Henry Locke, aka New York’s most eligible bachelor, glaring across the table at me.
Rumor has it Henry’s a business genius who’s as talented in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. Sure, he’s gorgeous. Sex-in-a-seven-thousand dollar suit. But…
He’s arrogant and infuriating.
He refuses to listen to me when I insist I didn’t con his mother.
He thinks he can bully me, buy me off, control me, even seduce me.
Henry may have the women of Manhattan eating out of the palm of his hand, but I'm so over entitled rich guys who think they own the world.
No way will his wicked smile be charming ME out of my panties.
His wicked...devastating...impossible-to-resist smile.
Oh well, who needs panties anyway?

Forget the title, it doesn’t do the book justice.
I really liked this book. The hero is a billionaire, but other than explaining his status, his money is not integral to the character which I love. It mostly avoids the cliche of Prince Charming saving the struggling waif.
It’s about a young woman who rebuilds a life for herself and her sister from a shattered childhood. It’s about how she overcame a horror story of a traumatic experience and how she picked up the pieces. It’s also fun in how she meets said billionaire by becoming a “dog whisperer.” The dialogue is a riot. Real lol moments.
How the author made this realistic was the people, the depth, New York City, the cultures, and the artisans who make it unique. How a billionaire who works for a living really lives. Kinda like the Queen of UK, it sounds good, but we know the long, complex business and social responsibilities, besides less than ideal family may not make it worth it. I just ate this book in a couple of days because the story was so original and fun. More novels like this Annika! Please?
Read this on a day I was home sick from work. A wonderful story that is well written with enough twists to keep you interested without driving you crazy waiting to get to the point. Vicky is a multi-faceted character who is very likable and I was pulling for her the entire book. And who doesn’t like a happy ending?
Most Eligible Billionaire by Annika Martin
I totally binge-read this because I had to know what happened! ...And I’m a sucker for romantic happy endings, which I was unapologetically rooting for...so I had to know if that’s where this would end. These characters are great, and I enjoyed following along in their story - even though I didn’t find the “comedy” part of the “romantic comedy” as described on the cover! Hm... Great read, in any case.
