THE BILLIONAIRE LEGACY (Billionaires and Babies #1)

THE BILLIONAIRE LEGACY                   REESE RYAN

“Just for tonight.”

Until their chance reunion takes a sharp turn…
 toward twins. 

Tech billionaire Benjamin Bennett can’t resist a steamy weekend with Sloane Sutton—his crush on her goes way back. But when he tracks her down, she’s pregnant—with twins! Now their fling needs trust to survive. Benji wants a wedding; his family claims she’s a gold digger. But Sloane won’t be bought—or married. Can they find common ground…and a shot at forever?




MY REVIEW:
     When you fall in love at five how do you tell your heart no?  That is what Benjamin Bennett decided he would no longer deprive his heart what it has always wanted.
     He was at his cousin’s wedding, who happens to be good friends with Sloane Sutton the woman of his dreams.  The only drawback in the whole deal is… Sloane is his older sister’s best friend.  Making her five years older than he is.  Which should only count when he was five years old right?
     When he saw his sister leave with his niece, he found his opening and decided to take.  He walks over to the table Sloane’s at to talk with her.  When they had greeted each other earlier she thought she approved at what she saw when she looked at him but now, he was positive. 
     When a song came on from their childhood that they both remember his overplaying they laughed and he asked her to dance.  At first, she wasn’t going to but then she went for it.  The sparks were flying for both of them he could tell because her breathing had changed and she was standing closer.
     He flat out told her he wanted her.  She tried to use the excuse of their age but he said it did count he was no longer five.  He asked her to meet him at the family cabin which he told her he now owned and redid since.  She surprised him and agreed.  Only if they left at different times.  He happily agreed.  After they talked for two hours straight, she got ready to leave when he asked her to stay.  No strings.
     When he kissed her, they both felt the instant chemistry.  She stays.  The next morning, he is so happy before he realizes what he’s doing he asks her to go to Japan with him for the six months he will be there.  To his relief she says no, he is relieved right, he needs to think about that. 
     She says no she has to work.  Which she does, with two loans to pay, a house payment, and bills.  Life could not stop for a pleasure trip she is not a billionaire like him.  She’s happy she turned him, down right?  Now she has to think about why she turned him down.
     After six months of respecting each other boundaries and not calling each other which they both so wanted to do.  Benji is back in the country and so wanting to see her he flies straight into Nashville to see Sloane instead of going home to Seattle.  He didn’t call he wants to surprise her.
     Boy does his life change in an instant to the point when he becomes dizzy.  Yet, she’s the one who bumps her head getting out of the car when he startles her and passes out.  He needs to rush her to the hospital due to her condition but he is madder than a hornet.
     Although he’s angry for being left out of the loop, he loves and cares for Sloane and is scared for her and the baby’s safety.  Little does he know the gifts keep coming.
     I really enjoyed this fun fast read.  The character’s family members kept you on your toes as to what they might do or say next.  Also, how they would handle each new situation the couple were confronted with.
     I did have a problem with Benji saying she was lying to him all the time yet hello then have a chef, housekeeper, the nursery redone, but the topper the nanny shows up without telling her.  Yes, all nice things but personal things that should be discussed.  Withholding same as lying, just saying.  Forgiveness after the fact should give her the same pass then, right?

     I give this: 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
