Stranded with a Billionaire: Billionaire Boys Club (Hot Guy: Logan)

Author: Jessica Clare 

I finally had time to read the Billionaire Boys Club and I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant of reading this series. The whole idea of Billionaires forming a secret brotherhood was not appealing to me. Nevertheless, I read it and didn't like it, but didn't hate it. I'll explain! 

"I don't care about that. I want you. When you left, it felt like the lights went out. I don't care if you eat with the wrong fork at every meal. I don't care if you waitress for the rest of your life. I just want you at my side, Bronte."

Logan and Bronte formed a strong bond stuck in a hotel during a hurricane. Those few days were very romantic and very real. They really bonded, but, of course, all good things have to end at some point. Bronte believed that Logan was the hotel manager, when he was really a billionaire. Bronte felt betrayed when she discovered the truth. I had a problem with this. She felt betrayed but she never really tells Logan the real reason why she felt betrayed; she never mentions to her father to him. Does she? I didn't feel like those reasons were really addressed. 

"I miss you. I miss your smile. I miss your hand in mine. I miss your laugh when you're nervous. I wish to God I was hearing it right now."

Another thing I didn't like was Logan's possessiveness and his I-can-control-everything-and-everyone attitude. It just bothered me, a lot. I usually find possessiveness in guys CUTE, but I didn't like Logan's possessiveness. Bronte was also an annoying heroine. She didn't wan to be treated like a whore but she easily gave in to what he wanted to give her! UGH! 

"I'm not fighting fair," he told her. "I know. I don't care. I want you back. I don't give a shit about being fair or being the better man."

If you don't like cheesy endings DO NOT read this book. I almost laughed at the last couple of sentences because I don't like cheesy endings, I like happy endings, but not cheesy ones. 

"Love if not control, Logan. Love is partnership. Friendship. A wise man once said,'If you want to be loved, be lovable.'"

Now that I ranted about the things I didn't like, let me tell what I did like. I liked Bronte's attitude and her strong demeanor. I also kind of liked the Brotherhood, but I was more interested in the Brotherhood than the actual plot. The philosophy that was included was interesting and it played a big part of the book, and I learned a lot of cool quotes from this book. 

"'Every heart hears a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back.'"

I'm sorry Jessica Clare, I didn't like this book. BUT I can't wait to read the rest of them! I have hope that the next books will be better.
