    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

    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.

    What a way to lose your heart to a story!

    What a way to lose your heart so utterly and completely to a story! This is such a brilliant story that will touch you on literally every level imaginable. It will penetrate your heart and run numerous stealth missions to win over every piece of it. When you finally walk away from this book, you will see with new eyes, feel with a greater depth, and hope more intensely then you ever imagined. This book highlights and savors the most fragile and precious parts of what makes life truly sweet and fulfilling. Gen is living her life the best way she knows how. She is fighting day by day to win respect from her peers and superiors, to win stability for her family, and to achieve expectations thrust upon her. She has no delusions about what she can and can’t accomplish, so when Arthur is gruffly thrown at her, she just digs harder and deeper trying to solve yet another problem in her way. Arthur thinks he knows how to handle a woman like Gen, but he quickly finds himself a challenge like no other. As he watches his life change in response to this strange yet intriguing woman, he finds himself at a difficult and painful stalemate. Can Gen prove to those who matter that she is worthy of a place among them, or will Arthur’s case destroy any hopes of fulfilling the only dreams she ever had? I love walking blind into a Blair Babylon book because only then can I really appreciate all of the emotions, nuances, and life that you will encounter. Each of her amazing characters are completely and deliciously complex to their very core. There is nothing easy about her storylines either. They make you work, suffer, and sweat right along the characters every step of the way. These books become a part of you. Even if you don’t want to acknowledge that fact, it is still so very true. Blair Babylon has forged a true masterpiece! She has taken a wonderfully wicked storyline, infused it with some fantastically stunning characters, and then molded it with spectacular twists and turns that gives you a truly extraordinary and wonderfully epic adventure. With this incredible powerhouse of an addition to her fun and quirky new series, I am absolutely on pins and needles to see what she creates next! This is one author that NEVER fails to deliver, and when what she delivers is pure bliss wrapped in utter perfection.

    I would sure LOVE a stiff drink too!!

    Oh my Lanta!! The ways that Blair Babylon can make you laugh so hard you have to squeeze your legs together, because you just can't stop and run to the loo!! Casimir', with his intense emerald eyes, is so hot, he made my panties melt and I'm not in my early 20's anymore. And Rox, well she's so acerbic, has a slightly twisted sense of the universe and a slavish devotion to her tribe. And therein evidences a fair portion of the humor, love/comfort, near pathos and really the true evidence of her very warm, Southern heart. Her tribe are, for me, the start of Cash really connecting with Rox and truly being able to see the depth of her soul. I have read this book at least 4 times now and will probably re-read again before the summer is over. There's always the chuckles and the tears that still catch me. I've read and re-read all of Blair Babylon's books so far. She just does that to you. You read one and want to know where the other characters(main supporting cast) have gone. And she always fulfills! Luv, love, love Casimir and Rox! Then Arthur's books(Stiff Drink & Hard Liquor)
