Love triumphs in these uplifting romances, part of the Billionaires of Boston series:
Book 1: Secrets of a One Night Stand
Book 2: The Perfect Fake Date
Simone's sexy second Billionaires of Boston romance (after Vows in Name Only) combines a slew of tropes—unexpected pregnancies and one-night stands among them—to riveting effect. Upper crust businesswoman Mycah Hill has a blisteringly hot one-night stand with a stranger. She intends to savor the memory and move on—until an interview for a V-P of operations job lands her back in front of her mystery man, Achilles Farrell. Reclusive computer whiz Achilles newly co-owns the family company with the two half brothers he only learned of at the reading of his father's will, and he's still uneasy in the role. When Mycah acts as if she's never seen him before in the interview, Achilles retreats emotionally, convinced that, because of their class differences, she plans to keep him her "dirty little secret." Through skillful plotting, Simone guides her hero and heroine to a happily-ever-after, including a well-deserved comeuppance for Mycah's entitled blue-blooded parents. Simone's lively prose and believable characterization—plus some occasional snark—combine to form an irresistible story full of heat and heart.
I loved his book and Achillles and Mycah are perfect for each other. They both have their own baggage and dreams and hopes. I loved how fast paced the book was and I really can’t wait for Keenan book. These brothers are everything to root for. Naima Simone again has a wonderful escape in her books.

This is the second book in the Billionaires of Boston series. Overall it was a good book. It was a little slow at the beginning but it does pick up. I look forward to reading the next book about Kenan Rhodes, the youngest brother. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and I am voluntarily leaving a review.
Loved the book
I loved the story overall, it’s a fast read. It has some spice, a little steam. I loved Mycah she is all about her career then she meets Achilles at a bar. I won’t say more. This book captured my attention from the beginning until the end.
