Internet security billionaire, Liam Manning, made a death bed promise to his beloved brother, Marcus, to complete his mystery-romance manuscript. Problem is that Liam’s experience with women is limited to the cold-hearted supermodels he usually dates—nothing like the warm, caring woman depicted in the novel his brother began. So falling back on his hacking skills, he infiltrates an online dating site to find a suitable woman to teach him about romance-regular guy style.

Lorelei Torres was raised by her hard-working mother because her loser father is behind bars. All she wants is an honest man to love and with whom she can raise a large, happy family. After the last contender for her heart turns out to be a lying snake, she decides it’s time she started over. San Francisco is as far from Buffalo as she can get, unfortunately it’s not beyond the reach of her mother’s constant reminders about Lorelei’s ticking biological clock. When her dear parent signs her up with an online dating agency, Lorelei reluctantly agrees to meet her cyber-match. Maybe it’s time an impartial computer chose a man for her.

Can Liam finish the novel before Lorelei discovers his deceptions and, more critically, before she breaches the firewall around his heart?

Erin: What happens when you have a man looking for a relationship for all the wrong reasons coupled with a woman whose meddling mother signs her up on an Internet dating website? Such is the premise for Alexia Adams’ novel, Played by the Billionaire. There are death bed promises to a dying brother, ticking biological clocks, deception, well-meaning friends, and more than a few misunderstandings in the story of billionaire Liam Manning and reluctant but hopeful Lorelai Torres.

This was a fun, sweet, quick and easy read. The relationship between Liam and Lorelai was believable and I found myself rooting for them to get their HEA, even when the misunderstandings kept piling up. There isn’t much steam in Played by the Billionaire, but there is enough swoon to keep you turning the page. This is definitely a feel-good read, perfect for curling up on the couch or reading while sitting on the beach. I’ll be checking out book 2 of this series for sure.

Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
