Can't Buy Me Love
It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs... right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.
Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever...
I love me a Lemmon book!
This was my introduction to the Crane brothers, and Tag was definitely a nice one to start with. The guy is a mountain of a man with long hair and a beard. Yowza! Okay, I’ll stop objectifying him. He really is a great guy, especially when it comes to Rachel. She’s at an uncertain time in her life, mostly thanks to her ex, so she’s understandably uncertain about Tag.
They have great chemistry! A misunderstanding gets them off to an amusing start, and it’s a whole lot of fun from there. I love the dialogue and how easy it is to feel the attraction between them. I appreciate that we spend plenty of time experiencing their inevitable decent into purgatory love. I just adore them together.
The secondary characters are great, too. I love the friendships and how involved in the story they are.
Overall, The Billionaire Next Door is fun and sexy! I look forward to getting to know more of the Crane men.
