Hardworking Australian nurse Ben Adams inherits a substantial sum and decides to tour Europe. In Monaco, the home of glamour and the idle rich, he meets French billionaire playboy Léo Artois. After getting off on the wrong foot—as happens when one accuses a stranger of being part of the Albanian mafia—their attraction blazes. Léo, born to the top tier of society, has never known limits, and Ben, used to budgeting every cent, finds it difficult to adjust to not only Léo’s world, but also the changes wealth brings to his own life.
As they make allowances for each other’s foibles, Ben gradually appreciates the finer things, and Léo widens his perspective. They both know one thing: this is not a typical holiday romance and they’re not ready to say goodbye.
Review: For me, Louisa Masters is a new author to me. To be perfectly honest, though, I didn’t really pay too much attention to the author when I was busy salivating over my next installment of the Dreamspun Desires imprint. I mean the story is called The Bunny and the Billionaire – the part of me that loves paranormal romance thought of some sexy shifter action. But the hopeless romantic that loves nothing more than a hot story of an ordinary guy meeting a smoking rich, hot, kind, handsome and all other things that are nice and awesome.
The story is about Ben – he’s a nurse from Australia (this Aussie wanted to know where in this wonderful country he came from). He was a private nurse who got a shit ton of money from a client who died – you will definitely need to suspend your disbelief for this part of the story. I found it just weird. Honestly, if it did happen in Australia the poor dude would probably be on Today Tonight or the cover of Woman’s Day for being some shifty character. As you can see, I struggled with relating to the character on this level, so that is the reason, though I really liked the story, that I could only rate it a 3.5/5.
Enjoying his European holiday of a life time, Ben meets rich French/Saudi playboy Leo Artois. Come on am I not the only one who keeps thinking of the beer Stella Artois? Not the point. The point is, Ben meets Leo at a Monaco casino and the two of them just click. There is plenty of sweet romance as well as hot sexy time. I really enjoyed that these two guys got to know each other and it wasn’t just about Leo showing off his lavish lifestyle to Ben. Or Ben showing off his insanely large inheritance.
If you’re into trashy romance (I can’t find another word for it, but I mean trashy in the most awesome possible way), you’ll love this. If you’re into Mills and Boon where the ordinary gets the insanely rich playboy – this is basically the MM romance you’re looking for.
