Review: The CEO Buys In (Wager of Hearts #1) by Nancy Herkness

Self-made billionaire Nathan Trainor feels restless and disillusioned. His company may be thriving, but he can’t find a woman who sees him for more than his wealth. With his love life in the red, he meets two other billionaire bachelors at the ultra-exclusive Bellwether Club. The three of them make a wager of the heart: they must find women who love them for who they are, not their money.

Savvy office temp Chloe Russell is trying to scrape together the money she needs to support her grandmother. So when a flu epidemic strikes Trainor Electronics and she’s promoted to Nathan Trainor’s assistant, she jumps at the lucrative opportunity. But then Nathan himself falls ill, and he and Chloe must work from his penthouse while he recuperates. Before long, it’s clear there’s genuine heat between them, and it’s more than just a fever spike. Will Nathan win Chloe’s heart—and the bet? Or will their differences destroy any chance for love?

This is a new to me author, but I had seen this book around so much, I decided to put myself out of my misery and read it.  Am I glad I did – mostly.  Not because I had any issue with the book, but because I was supposed to be doing something other than getting caught up in this story.  I tried to put it down to do the things I was supposed to be doing.  But it kept calling to me.  Tempting me to cheat.  I couldn’t stay away.  I kept sneaking back until I had it finished.  It was that gripping of a book.   I think I will be reading this author agian@

There was no suspense.  No action/adventure.  But there was an interesting bet to spice things up, and HOT erotic romance. *fanning self* These two really could not keep their hands off of each other, in spite of some of their inner dialog.

Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t all sex.  There was a story here too.  A rather interesting one in fact.  The character’s back stories were well rounded with extended family issues that gave us good insights into their actions and motivations.  They were also the cause of much of the conflict in the story.  It was a very nice mix of story and hot loving.

I have to admit, I am also a bit of a sucker for a well written billionaire (remember when it used to be millionaire?) story.  That touch of Cinderella.  Oh yeah!  That was here in spades.  Could be why it kept calling me back.  I love the Cinderella story, in all it glorious forms.

So grab your tiara, a flute of champagne, (or whatever) your favorite slippers, and enjoy this wonderful romp with a billionaire.  This is so worth the time.  Now I have to go finish . . .
