Erotic Romance Early Review: The Billionaires by Calista Fox

The Billionaires by Calista Fox (Lover's Triangle #1)

Synopsis from Goodreads
100 Shades of Sin...

In The Billionaires, Calista Fox delivers a sexy and sensuous friends-to-lovers tale with a delicious love triangle twist.

Jewel Catalano, Rogen Angelini, and Vin D'Angelo had been childhood best friends, spending every possible moment with one another. Rogen became her first love, the first one to show her what pleasure could be. Until a volatile feud erupted between their powerful California wine country families and she and Rogen were torn apart from each other. What she didn't expect was to find comfort and passion like she had never known in Vin's arms and bed. But when that too ended in disaster, Jewel moved to San Francisco to work for the Catalano empire. Years later, a series of daring acquisitions brings Jewel back to River Cross, the hometown where Rogen and Vin have recently returned as well. Jewel has the curves, the smarts, and the success to bring any man to his knees—especially the two men who remained best friends and still burn to possess her.

Mixing family business with erotic pleasure ignites a smoldering love triangle. But in order to pull off the bold deal that will build the trios’ own legacy and to stay in their heady, sensual paradise, they must discover what true love really is—or lose everything their hearts' desire, in The Billionaires by Calista Fox.

 This was rather flowery, peeps, but also sweet and hot, so I'm of two minds about this book.

It's actually nice to have a working menage with a lighter atmosphere once in awhile, and this is exactly what you'll get here.



Jewel, Rogen and Vin *let me just roll my eyes at the names rich parents can come up with* have been friends since childhood. Then their parents had a falling out (for some vague reasons) and started pulling their kids apart.

Let me quickly rant about the REASON. Really? Really?!! With the amount of time rich people spend with shrinks, it couldn't have been spotted and dealt with earlier?

Anyway. Jewel loves Rogen, he leaves, and she falls in love with a more tempestuous Vin. Both let her down.

Years later she wants to buy the land their families part own. Sparks fly and turn into a wildfire. Issues arise, misunderstandings are clarified, and the trio decides to go for the land together. Which is when it becomes really interesting.

There was also this practicality, the ability to listen to reason and their genuine affection for each other I enjoyed so very much. Oh, and the sex. *grins* It was pretty yummy.

What threw me was stilted, flowery dialogue that did not flow naturally and used a lot of fancy words we don't usually throw into our descriptions of someone or something.

The intrigue itself, and Jewel's best friends were refreshing and nice, so overall, this was thumbs up for me, and I recommend this book to the fans of the genre. Enjoy!

Ну очень цветистые описания и диалоги, ребятушки, однако, книга милая и горячая, так что я разрываюсь между хорошей и плохой оценками. А если честно, то вот приятно время от времени читать о работающем менаже-а-труа без ангста и трагедий, - и это как раз, что вы от этой истории получите.

Джювел, Роджен и Вин *дайте мне закатать глаза быстренько, потому как только богатые люди могут назвать своих детей так вычурно* были друзьями с детства. Затем их родители рассорились по плохо объясимым причинам и стали растаскивать своих детей в противоположные направления.

Дайте мне быстренько поворчать о причинах разрыва, о которых вы узнаете попозже. Какая-же это галиматья! Вот поверить не могу, что с такими деньгами они никогда не ходили к психоаналитику и не искали помощь...

И всё же. Джювел любит Роджена. Когда его отправляют в школу от неё подальше, она постепенно влюбляется в более вспыльчивого Вина. Оба её оставляют и предают.

Годы спустя она возвращается домой, пытаясь купить землю, которой совместно владеют все их семьи. Искры между ней и её бывшими бойфрендами так и сыпятся, недопонимания наконец-то выясняются, а обиды прощаются. Трио решает, что они хотят быть совладельцами земли.

Эта практичность, умение слушать доводы разума и их настоящая привязанность друг к другу как раз мне безумно импонировали. Ну, и конечно секс. Он тоже был ярким. *смеясь*

Что раздражало, так это нереально цветастый диалог, где главные герои использовали фразы и обороты в описаниях, которые нормальные люди в разговорной речи не используют вообще (а по большей части, и в письменном виде тоже).

Но. Интрига была интересная, да и порадывали лучшие друзья Джювел, так что в общем, книгу рекомендую, особенно оклонникам жанра.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
