Blurb : Dark, tortured, and intimidating, these dominant billionaires will steal their innocent heroines’ breath away. Overwhelmed by their desire to control their world, they push their heroines to explore their deepest desires. But even the most unworldly of heroines can unlock these billionaires’ secrets.

 

Xavier De Santis:

 

Disgraced. Ruinous. Playboy. The headlines are always shouting about Xavier’s various excesses, and he’s everything they say he is. But now he’s gone too far, and the black sheep of the De Santis family has been ordered to clean up his image. Volunteering at a homeless shelter, he sees a bright light amidst all the bleakness. An angel whose luminous face and tragic beauty call to him in ways he can’t explain.

 

Mia:

 

Vulnerable. Homeless. Virgin. When the shelter Mia calls home closes, she is left with nowhere to go – nowhere except for the luxurious, glorious palace of a home that Xavier De Santis has invited her to stay. This too-handsome billionaire is dark, dangerous – and also too good to be true. But surely Mia can indulge in her fantasies and escape the drudges of her daily life for just one night?

 

As one night turns into two, Mia knows that eventually, the magic will end and she will have to return to her life of hardship. She can’t keep the beautiful clothes. She can’t keep the soft bed. And most of all, she can’t keep the hard, handsome, brutal man who makes her crave his touch with every breath she takes. Mia doesn’t belong in his world. But as Xavier tempts his rags-to-riches heroine with exquisite pleasure and heady desire, Mia doesn’t stand a chance but to surrender completely to him.

 

Review : Only this morning when reviewing another book I wrote that you should not judge a book by its cover. At that time I meant a character in the book but this time I am really literally talking about the cover of a book. I am pretty sure that if The Billionaire’s Virgin (Billionaire Fairytales #1) by Jackie Ashenden had been a paperback I would not have chosen to read it.

 

And the whole reason for that would have been the title and the cover. But luck was on my side because with electronical books you have an equal chance of reading the blurb before you pay to close attention to the cover and discarding it as unsuitable.

 

But this book really was a close call. It is not that the cover is bad – it is just that it is unsuitable for this plot. The cover makes it seem like a sweet romance, when in fact the book is darker and feels realer than something that is called “The Billionaire’s Virgin” should be.

 

The reader is thrown directly into the story as it is more on the sorter side I missed a little depth in the beginning but came to terms with the style of this plot only a short time later. The plot was interesting and fresh even though that is hard to reach with all the Billionaire novels out there.

 

But if you can not work with clichés than you have to be careful here, because some points left me raising an eyebrow. But on the other hand the question marks I had in the plot but they can be neglected if you want to, its is just that I go OCD on Details and therefore I am a bitch about them sometimes.In total a surprising good read and I glad I choose it
