What it’s about
The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success – at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love…
Billionaire Logan Hawkings needs a vacation. 
He’s had a rough time after the death of his father and the betrayal of his fiancée. But with a visit to a recent business acquisition—a private island resort in the Bahamas—he has a chance to mend his broken heart.
When a hurricane blows in, a misplaced passport and a stalled elevator bring Logan together with an unusual woman named Bronte. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met—down to earth, incredibly sensual, and even quotes Plato.
She also has no clue that he’s rich…
Bronte Dawson, a waitress from the Midwest, is stranded with the hotel’s domineering yet sexy manager Logan. What’s the harm in a little fling when it’s just the two of them, alone in paradise? But after several steamy island nights in Logan’s arms, Bronte’s ready to give her heart—and her body—to the man in charge.
But she soon discovers there’s more to Logan than he’s told her…a billion times more. Now, Bronte’s caught in a whirlwind affair with one of the world’s most powerful men. But can their love endure their differences or will it all just blow over?

Dorsey’s Review
3.5 Stars!! 
Bronte Dawson doesn’t live above her means, she is a small town waitress who wins a “dream vacation” at a private island resort, her dream vacation turns into a nightmare when she ends up stranded in an elevator in the middle of a hurricane with a complete stranger Logan Hawkings. Bronte thinks Logan is the manager of the hotel and finds some comfort that she’s not alone.
Logan is gun shy when meeting women, he’s billionaire and tired of women who are after his bank balance and not him as a man. He soon realizes that Bronte has no clue who he is, and he finds himself giving into his attraction to the quirky waitress he’s trapped with, who quotes ancient philosophy. 

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back”. ~ Pluto

Their fun, intimate island experience comes to a screeching halt once rescued and Bronte finds out Logan deceived her. Logan is willing to fight for Bronte, but he’s not used to dealing with woman who are independent and find his wealth uncomfortable, Bronte holds her own and wants nothing from him other than for him to just be him. 
This was a fun read, but I must say the first half of the book was more enjoyable. After they were rescued and returned home….Bronte kind of bugged me about Logan’s wealth and her aversion to it.
All in all an enjoyable read, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the Billionaire Boys Club books!!
About the audiobook…
Narrated by Jillian Macie who did a great job, but has a bit of trouble with male voices. However, it’s not enough to detour me from listening to the rest of the series!!!
