The New Billionaire Boys Club novel by the New York Times bestselling author.

The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society. Six men of astonishing wealth. But there’s one thing money can’t buy. When it comes to love, success doesn't come so easily...

Jonathan Lyons. Playboy, billionaire, and adventurer, he lives life on the edge. When he hears that his mentor, Dr. Phineas DeWitt, had a secret journal that leads to a legendary artifact, Jonathan takes action. It stirs his blood, but it comes with a heady challenge: DeWitt's daughter Violet. She has what Jonathan needs. And she’s not giving it up it to the man who broke her heart.

Violet is Jonathan’s weakness—he’s still in love despite their volatile breakup a decade ago. But Violet’s memories have a sharper edge. She’s never forgiven him for abandoning her. Or so she thought. When Jonathan’s attentions turn seductive, she’s in danger of falling for him all over again. And she can’t help but wonder... does he really want her, or just what she's hiding?
This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Violet has been heart-broken over how things ended with Jonathon Lyons' over 10 years ago assuming him to be an egotistical jerk who abandoned her. Little does she know Jonathon has been just as torn up, if not more so, than she was over how things ended between them a decade ago. In attempts at reconnecting with Violet, if not in a romantic way at least in a friendly way, he follows Violet's deceased father's instructions to follow a scavenger hunt that leads them around the world. With this new trip happening Violet is afraid of what her emotions are doing to her, and what they mean for their future.

This book was entertaining for me. Sometimes it was predictable but that is only because after reading so many romance novels you already have an idea of what will happen, it's just that every story has a different twist to the normal story. Such as the couple will fight to break up but will end up together. It just is different in each way an author writes it. And luckily Jessica Clare always makes it interesting, so I'm never worried that I'm reading a romance novel of hers. The characters of Violet and Jonathon were so interesting for me, I loved when the story followed either one of them because they were both characters that I wanted to get to know more. Jonathon was the billionaire business man who has headstrong about getting the love of his life to love him, which is sometimes rare to get an insight into. And Violet was a quiet school teacher who had once been a wild teenager when she first met Jonathon and seeing that was interesting. I also really liked being able to see previous characters that I have met through the billionaire boys club books, there were only a few chapters when we saw these characters but I was really glad to see them again.
