    A fabulous read that will make you swoon giddily

    *ARC is received in exchanged for an honest opinion* My Rating: ❤❤❤❤(4 Dimples Stars) The Billionaire Next Door is a fabulous read that will make you keeps turning the pages till the very last words. I mean, an irresistible Thor-alike Billionaire meets an adorable bartender with marketing background? Counts me in! I have always love Billionaire tropes because it is nice to imagined people that seems larger than life falls in love stupidly like the rest of us did and additionally it is such a great escapism. I particularly like how this story started with Rachel being a house sitter and dog carer at a luxurious hotel and accidentally met the Billionaire neighbor. I really like how the author portrayed the sexy hero in this book. Taggart Crane or Tag is a billionaire in hotel industry and he looks obscenely hot with his Thor/Viking alike physique, his ridiculously attractive long hair and he pretty much looks like a city lumberjack. Aside from his dashing looks, I love the way he is with Rachel, the way he respects her and I feels that his feeling toward he her is superbly believable. I am also liking how strong his relationship is with his family especially towards his brothers. Rachel Foster or Rachel is an adorable heroine and I really like her character. She is a bartender but at the same time she is temporarily house sitting and taking care of the owner's dog. The fact that she used to be in a corporate marketing intrigued me and I love that she is very talented and passionate in that field. I am also digging the way she seems to guard her feelings due to her past relationship and I enjoyed 'watching' Tag helps her deal with her issues. All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book because it is super duper awesome and I really love the romance between Tag and Rachel. I am definitely recommending The Billionaire Next Door to romance lovers who would love to devour a wonderful literary work that is really engaging and captivating.

    Irresistible free-spirited gentle giant

    Jessica Lemmon's penchant for writing sweet, swoony, sexy-as-sin heroes is never more apparent than it is in her latest book, The Billionaire Next Door. Taggart -- Tag -- Crane has to be one of, if not the most endearing of Lemmon's book boyfriends. A free-spirited gentle giant with a heart bigger than his bank account, Tag Crane is as irresistible to Rachel Foster as he is to readers. While this book absolutely can stand alone, the tone of this book and temperament of these characters are different, lighter and more playful, than Lemmon's first installment in the series, The Billionaire Bachelor. Tag is far more laid back than Reese, and Rachel is timid in contrast to Merina, but Tag and Rachel challenge each other nonetheless; the crux of Tag and Rachel's conflict stems from her desire to exert her independence while he battles an overwhelming -- and unexpected -- drive to care and provide for her. And Lemmon's trademark humor and wit dance across the pages, giving life to these endearing, engaging, ebullient characters. The Billionaire Next Door certainly isn't skimping on the heat either. Whether they're cuddling in cold Chicago or seducing each other in the sand and surf in sunny Hawaii, Tag and Rachel's chemistry sizzles. The relationship Lemmon crafts between the two is enticing, exciting, and erotic in the best way possible. In fact, there's a shower scene so steamy that it will more than likely require readers to take a cold shower immediately after reading it. But more than that, the relationship that develops between Tag and Rachel is real, honest, heartfelt, and grounded in acts of love that are indicative of the foundation being laid. There's a real joy evident in the evolution of Tag and Rachel's romance. Lemmon again fills her fictional world with a colorful cast of secondary characters -- like Luc and Gena, who are unapologetically brash and irrevocably AWESOME -- and introduces Eli, the lost Crane brother and soon-to-be protagonist next in line for a happily ever after of his own. Tag has to be, hands down, one of my favorite book boyfriends; he's a paradox and a pleasure. The Billionaire Next Door is a fantastic installment in Lemmon's newest series, and I cannot wait to see more of Tag and Reese in Eli's book.

    Simple Yet Impressive

    After Rachel's ex Shaun not only took credit for the work she'd done, but then stole the promotion she'd worked her rump off for, she quit the job she'd left the small town in Ohio for, but then dumped him. Now she's working as a bartender with her friend and roommate Bree, except now Bree has a new fiancé so she knows it's time to not only get some of her independence back, but learn to stand on her own two feet again. She gets some of her independence back when Oliver, one of her regular weekly customers asks her to stay in his penthouse to dog sit his Great Dane Adonis for a month while he has to travel for work. While there she meets Tag, the bad boy who lives on the next floor up. Who turns out to not only own the building, but be the youngest son to billionaire Alexander ‘Big’ Crane. Tag runs the restaurant side of Crane Hotels nationwide or “Guest and Restaurant Services,” as he describes it. Rachel thought of Tag as her long-haired, bearded neighbor, who closely resembles Tarzan, or maybe Thor instead. But he's a billionaire hotel magnate, he'd been intimidating physically, but now he's also monetarily intimidating, but oh so hot! Tag was sure Rachel liked him, but now he's not so sure. What's up with her, but maybe it's him? He's never been off kilter with any woman before, they always flock to him and although they only occupied his mind to a certain extent, he's never been one to fantasize, zone out, or lose sleep over any woman. But with Rachel he cannot shake the feeling of her fingers on his body, he just can't stop thinking about what her touch did to him, no other touch has ever been as welcome as hers had been. She has him so wrapped up, he doesn't know what to do and indecision isn't typically him. Usually if a woman gave the impression she didn't want to be around him or want him around he didn't care, he'd just walk away, there were plenty of women who wanted him. But he wanted the blonde, cute, dimple cheeked Rachel. She intrigued him, and he wasn’t going to give up or back away from what he wanted. She wouldn't be staying at Oliver's place much longer. So he came up with a plan to involve her in his bar-rehab project in Hawaii. Since she used to work for Winshop Luxury Hotels as their bar manager, who are one of Crane Hotels' major competitors. As well as currently bartending she had major in site for what was needed to help revamp the hotel bar, but it also gave him a chance to spend more time with her. What happens in Hawaii between Tag and Rachel? Does she stick with her plan of "just having fun", and come back to Chicago to start fresh, or do things become a permanent love story between them? You'll have to read THE BILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR to find out. But it's worth the time to sit back and enjoy reading their spunky back and forth banter. Although this is Book 2 of the Billionaire Bad Boys series, it can be read as a standalone story, as I read it. I will however go back and read THE BILLIONAIRE BACHELOR (Book 1), just to read Reese's story! This is my first Jessica Lemmon book, but it won't be my last. I enjoyed her writing style and the heroine who stands up to the hot and sexy billionaire who thinks all women will just fall at their feet, awesome storyline! I received an ARC via Tasty Book Tours through NetGalley in exchange for a blog tour review. Due to sexual content this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older! FAVORITE PASSAGES ~ ~ then walked toward her. No, stalked. Stalked toward her like a lion. Or a panther. Or some big, muscled cat. Definitely a lion. Because he has a mane. ~ the girl for you will challenge everything you think you know about yourself. That’s how you know she’s a keeper.

    Great Book 2

    I love LOVE love Tag and Rachel, individually and as a couple. Tag is a fun-loving and easy-going but with brains and depth to go with his hot body and gorgeous face. He may not be the most serious of the Cranes but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t care or put in the effort. He just has his own way of doing it. Meeting Rachel, who doesn’t know who he is and couldn’t care less once she finds out, throws him for a loop. None of his normal tricks work on her … and he soon finds he can’t get her out of his mind. It’s fun seeing him fall in love and struggle with it. Lots of things come easy, especially women, so it’s nice to see him thrown for once :) Rachel may be resisting getting involved again after a bad relationship, but Tag proves to be very hard to resist. It’s great seeing them get to know each other, banter and play, and then help the other with some of their issues. And watching her get her confidence back, thanks to Tag, is wonderful. My only issue is that I’m not sure why they let their situation get away from them. I kinda understand where they are coming from but it seems to have gotten bigger than it needed to. Maybe it’s just me (and it’s the climactic trouble so I’m not going to give more away) but they had done so well for most of the book and then I’m a little lost at the end. Overall, though, it didn’t keep me from enjoying seeing Tag and Rachel get their happy ending … and now I’m anxious to see what happens with the next Crane. I have a feeling this one could get my heart in a twist. (Honest review given volunarily for this ARC)

    The Billionaire Next Door by Jessica Lemmon

    This was an absolutely adorable book that I read pretty much in one sitting. I loved the independent, hard working Rachel and boy do sparks fly between her and Tag. I too had a dog that had separation anxiety so can relate to both Tag's and Adonis's actions. This story is full of humor and frequently had me snorting with laughter. Lemmon's did a great job with pulling me into this story and and can't believe what a quick read it was even though it was actually almost 400 pages long. I've had an overload of "billionaire" books recently but despite this overload thoroughly enjoyed this romantic romp. Definitely reading the rest of the books in this series!
