    laughing so much that I got weird looks on the bus

    Blair Babylon has a way of writing Billionaire romances that sound totally believable, there are many authors out there who write this type of romance trope, but I rank Blair in my top 5 Goto Authors when wanting to escape reality in a contemporary way. From the witty titled chapters to the hilarious misunderstandings of British and Texan English... a nod to the companion Billionaire books and characters also had me smiling... laughing so much that I got weird looks on the bus to work! Gen - AKA Genevieve is a pupil at a prestigious law firm in London training to become a full barrister(attorney in the US). British born, but brought up in Texas, she has a hard time fitting in, when when her law mentor dies unexpectedly. Her new mentor hands her the office’s worst case: Arthur Finch-Hatten, six-feet and four-inches of ripped, loaded, hot English nobleman. Gen needs to win Arthur’s case, and with the other Pupils backstabbing each other, and the only way to win his case and save his earldom is to keep him from spending his days hungover in bed and his nights pouring Cristal on naked, drunk women before flying off in his private jumbo jet to the next party it to pose as his girlfriend... Gen thinks that it will be a hard task, but she soon realises there is more to Arthur than he lets on. Arthur wears a mask, a persona that not only the elite of London, but his brother and uncle firmly believe... We see this mask slip as Gen and Arthur grow closer. BUT we are going to have to wait for the 2nd book to find out more I can't wait to find out what it is Arthur is really up to when he gets those mysterious phone calls! *** I voluntarily reviewed this book, I gained no monetary incentives nor was I specifically requested to review the book, these are my honest ramblings and I hope you enjoy reading them - kat***

    A Complex Story with a Killer Cliffhanger 😁

    I found the 1st few chapters a little slow going (hence 4 stars not 5) but they were necessary & definitely didn't spoil the the remainder of the book!!! Gen is a British born but American raised Barrister in training, who, after the death of her sponsor at her Law office, is put in a more 'hands on' position with her Law Office's most difficult client .... Lord Arthur Finch-Hatten, the Earl of Severn. His younger brother is suing him for his title, lands & billions, as he deems that Arthur squanders it on drink, drugs & women in front of the world's press without shame. Part of her job is to convince to him to change his ways, at least until the court case. Her chance of getting the best start to the next stage to her career depends on her success with him. She dispares & finally throws out, in front of her new sponsor, that she'd pose as his girlfriend to keep him out of the bad press & on the straight & narrow .... she hopes!!! Arthur has secrets, that's clear from the start. He refuses to curb his wayward lifestyle, that's being played out in the press, but we don't know why. it's clearly not stupidity as he's beyond clever. Bits & pieces are revealed throughout the book as to his reasons & lordy are they huge & lofty but scary too, He has such integrity!! He does, to an extent, curb his lifestyle, thanks to Gen, but his secrets keep getting in the way & dragging him further down!! The chemistry between Arthur & Gen as this story unfolds is sweet at the start, as she's rather selfconsious but it soon heats up to boiling levels. I'll just mention the kitchen ;-) Their friendship is building into something strong. The peripheral characters are as equally intriguing as the two main ones & some are deeply unsettling, as are some of the actions that are occurring!! I can hardly wait for the conclusion to Arthur's story. I NEED to find out how the Author finally decides to untangle him from all of the knots he's gotten himself & now Gen into!! I'm hoping his bff's will make an appearance in book 2 as I love Casmir & Max too. I highly recommend a Stiff Drink ;-) Beautifully written. Debbie, 1970, UK

    Sensually Playful & Intense.🔥😍

    Sensually Playful & Intense.🔥😍 Full Of Intrigue & Familial Betrayal.💔😢💥 Unabridged Audible Audiobook 🎧 Stiff Drink: Arthur Duet, Book #1 Runaway Billionaires, Book #2 By: Blair Babylon Narrated by: John Lane Length: 10 hrs and 19 mins I was captivated by the narrator's voice in this story. It kept me completely riveted throughout, mind you the whole story is so gripping so it's no surprise!!🙏😍 Lord Arthur Finch-Hatten, Earl of Severn is being sued for his Earldom & billions by his younger brother, Christopher. Christopher & the press, all suggest that Arthur is squandering his money on sex, extravagant spending, travel & drugs!😳 Everything on the surface points to this being the truth but as we peek behind the curtain it's more than clear that Arthur is using his 'Cad & Wastral' tags as a cover of some sort!😱 Genevieve Ward is a British born, American raised, Barrister in training. Her sponsor in her Law Offices recently died so she's assigned a new one. They're both at a loss how to reign Arthur in. Octavia threatens to drop his case, which he's not at all happy about. In a desperate move, Gen suggests she becomes his pretends girlfriend, to try & curtail his bad habits & galivanting. To her utter shock they both agree!!🙈😲😂 Over time a true & trusted friendship grows between Arthur & Gen. She comes to see how deeply kind and clever he is. How much Spencer House, it's people, contents & grounds truly mean to him, he loves them all, and how absolutely loyal he is to Crown & Country. She just can't mesh that side of him with the frivolous one that world knows!😒 After a couple of seemingly unrelated incidents, months later, Arthur is out of sorts. She even risks her career by using a 'honey pot' technique to try & get him to talk.😉🔥 It doesn't work but he suddenly seems fearful & wants to settle the Law Suit at all costs!!😲💥 What can possibly have happened to have shaken the unshakeable Lord?? Is his life in danger? Is her's, his families?? Aargghhh I need the next book NOW!!🙏 💕 I adored the gradual build up of this couple, of how compassionate & caring he is with her. I also love his unwavering loyalty to his friends & the Crown.👑💙 Gen is a spit fire when she's riled up. I have a feeling she & Arthur are going to need that side of her in the concluding book.😔😢 I am absolutely *not* a fan of either Christopher or Elizabeth!!😡 They both seem like users that are out for themselves, for differing reasons I think?!😒👎 I highly recommend this Audiobook 🎧 Its completely riveting and worth all of the stars!!🌟 Debbie, 1970, UK

    What a fantastic slow-burn story.

    It's a little hard for me to explain how much and why I like books by Blair Babylon. As a general rule, I hate books with cliffhangers (please don't stop reading yet) but her stories are so compelling I just can't stay away from them and – this is important – she doesn't make you wait more than a few months for the next book. In the case of this story, the next book will also be the conclusion to Arthur and Gen story. Because I appreciate it when other reviewers mention a book has a cliffhanger I feel compelled to do the same but I implore you to give her writing a chance. Blair Babylon is a superb storyteller. Her writing is witty, funny, tear-inducing, snarky (at times) and she uses words that challenge my vocabulary. Her Billionaires in Disguise: Rae series (available now as one book that contains the entire story) remains one of my all-time favorite books. I loved it so much I even bought the paperback copy. Never before in my life have I spent $24.99 on a book but that's how much I loved that story and I had to have a copy for my keeper shelf. Now for something about Stiff Drink. We met Arthur in Working Stiff (Casimir's story) and I have to say he didn't come off too well. (You don't need to read Working Stiff to enjoy Stiff Drink as it stands alone with no problem.) Stiff Drink contains several surprises about Arthur and we learn that not everything is as it seems. Once I started reading Working Stiff I couldn't put it down. I fell in love with Gen's character, too. She's trying so hard to be British and give up the Americanisms that hamper her climb up the career ladder. Arthur is helping her with that project and they come to work very well together. This story made me laugh out loud in several places and shed tears in others. This kind of reaction from me is exactly what I look for in a good book and Blair always delivers just what I need. I nearly forgot to mention that the sexual tension between Arthur and Gen is absolutely delicious! I received an advanced copy of this story some time ago but I had a hard time making myself start it because I knew I wouldn't want it to end. I know that doesn't make too much sense but it's been a while since Blair's had a new full-length novel released and I just wanted to savor it. I'm so glad I learned about her books three years ago; I hope you will give them a try.

    Un-put-downable

    Read both books in one sitting! Fantastic story. Arthur and Gen are absolutely meant for each other. Their road is long and bumpy, but that makes the end even sweeter. Hard to say goodbye to those two.
