Overnight billionaires, the Beaumont brothers are thrust into life in the fast lane with exotic cars, private jets . . . and sex and success on their minds.
A commanding presence in the boardroom and the bedroom, Deacon Beaumont has come to save the failing company French Kiss. He was born to be boss in this glamorous new world of lacy lingerie and stunning supermodels. But one bold and beautiful woman dares to question his authority.
Olivia Harrington has dedicated her life to the company’s success. Just because Deacon is sexy as hell doesn’t mean he’ll make a better CEO. With a limitless supply of push-up bras and garter belts, Olivia turns her considerable feminine charms on Deacon to discover what makes him tick . . . and reveals instead the billion reasons why she wants him to stay.
A BILLIONAIRE BETWEEN THE SHEETS is a fun and sexy rags-to-riches story about family, healing and love that takes place in the glitzy and glamorous world of lingerie fashion and I enjoyed it so much, I didn’t want it to end.
Olivia Harrington grew up in the hallways of world-famous lingerie company, French Kiss and always expected to inherit it from her step-father so it’s big shock when he leaves the controlling interest to his estranged nephews. But Olivia’s willingness to give up everything to get the company back because of the cherished memories of working beside the man who was like a father to her find her braving the gator-infested bayous of Louisiana to track down the Beaumont brothers with an offer, never mind that her true talent lies in design and not in running a company.
Deacon Beaumont is shocked to learn that he and his brothers inherited their late uncle’s almost bankrupt lingerie empire. Deacon is a savvy businessman and selling to Olivia makes sense but the challenge of bringing the company back from ruin gets his juices flowing in a major way. His palpable attraction to Olivia and his need to rescue her also play into his decision to step up to the helm of the company. Both Olivia and Deacon are quite unprepared for the strength of their attraction to each other but will their budding relationship withstand the secrets and betrayals from the past as well as the vindictive manipulations of people determined to destroy French Kiss?
Deacon and Olivia are very likable characters and even as a couple I loved them but the rest of the characters – the hunky Beaumonts, the inappropriate assistant, the nudist neighbors, strange juicer salesman and even the eccentric French designer – all made this such an entertaining story, something that Ms. Lane does so well. My favorite thing about this story is Olivia. I love that her creativity was her strength and she was not portrayed as some superwoman who could suddenly step into the role of running a company, but that she was aware of her shortcomings in some areas and was willing to step aside and let the right person lead the company.
I also loved that the focus was not on the flash and dazzle of the fashion industry and the fancy lifestyle but that it was all about family and healing the hurts from the past. The bond between the brothers and their easy relationship was so endearing. This is such a great start to the series and I can’t wait for Nash’s story.
