With endless wealth comes irresistible temptation . . .
It’s an undisputed fact that Nash Beaumont is the hottest of the Beaumont brothers. His slow, sensual smile charms every French Kiss employee-and tempts every woman to buy the company’s lingerie. But beneath Nash’s raw charisma is a dark, kinky side that he struggles to control . . . a side that may be exposed by one lovely-and unexpectedly adventurous woman.
Reporter Eden Huckabee needs a story. And when she discovers Nash’s dirty little secret, she thinks she’s found it. But Eden doesn’t count on Nash turning the tables on her-or that she will fall so deeply for this unbelievably sexy, one-in-a-billion Beaumont.
Nash Beaumont is the charming brother, always smiling, always flirting but what nobody knows is that underneath all that charm is a very sensitive man with potentially destructive secrets on the verge of being exposed by a tenacious reporter.
Eden Huckabee is on the hunt for the perfect story to cement her reputation as a hard-news reporter and she thinks she has just the right subject, but as she spends more time with Nash, it becomes more about enjoying Nash’s company and less about the story. But will Nash be so forgiving when he discovers that she was lying to him all this time?
With his laid-back charm, I didn’t expect Nash to be anything more than fun-loving and good with the ladies, but he is a very complicated character and while his dark side and deep secrets were something of a surprise, they also make you just want to fix him.
Eden has never met a situation she couldn’t handle and her determination is one of her biggest assets. Once she discovers Nash’s secrets, she focuses on making him realize that his guilt and self-loathing are misplaced. Very soon, the lines between professional and personal are blurred and Eden is torn between the story that could secure her position with her newspaper and the man she has come to love.
I enjoyed Nash and Eden’s characters very much. Nash is the damaged and broody hero that brings all those nurturing instincts to life and Eden is perfect for him because she is a fixer and caretaker. Her fixing skills are not limited to Nash, but spread to the women she’s become close friends with as a result of her investigation.
A BILLIONAIRE AFTER DARK comes with lots of fun dialogue and hilarious moments, as well as a cast of endearing secondary characters caught in very entertaining situations. It’s a lighthearted, sweet and very enjoyable.
While it does not affect my enjoyment of this story, my minor quibble is that the many side secondary characters and their antics took some of the focus away from Eden and Nash’s romance such that some of their story, especially Nash’s past and the issues that made him so damaged got only a cursory touch where they could have benefited from more attention.
