It’s Tag Crane’s job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn’t perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he’s ever seen.

Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It’s not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it’s a fantasy come true. What’s the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can’t be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .

Every time I read a novel by Jessica Lemmon I fall deeper in love with her writing. Her contemporary romances are so fresh and fun. She’s quickly becoming one of my go-to authors for contemporary romance reads. Needless to say, I was excited to get to read The Billionaire Next Door. I really enjoyed The Billionaire Bachelor, the first book in the series, and I was looking forward to getting to know Reese’s younger brother, Tag.

In The Billionaire Next Door, bartender Rachel Foster’s life has hit an all-time low. The only bright spot is being paid a bunch of money to dog sit by one of her regular customers. She can’t complain about getting to stay in an amazing apartment — especially when one of her neighbors is sexy Tag.

Tag Crane is known to be many things. A one woman kind of guy isn’t one of them. But when gorgeous and smart Rachel moves into his building, he can’t seem to get her out of his mind. The more they spend time together, the more he realizes that maybe he’s done with his playboy ways.

This story was so stinking cute! Seriously. There was so much I loved about it! The writing was fun and witty. I loved the plot and how everything unfolded. Jessica Lemmon had a fresh take on the playboy billionaire theme and that made it exciting to read.

I adored Tag and Rachel. Tag was everything I hoped he would be after getting to know him a little bit in The Billionaire Bachelor. He was fun-loving and handsome, but he was also intelligent and nice. Rachel was that girl you can’t help but love. She was a great friend, smart and just an overall nice person. I loved her drive and determination. Together, they were magic! The chemistry between these two was off the charts sexy. Tag and Rachel just fit so perfectly together.

Honestly, there’s nothing to complain about with The Billionaire Next Door. I absolutely loved reading it, and I would highly recommend it to readers who love a great contemporary romance. It’s definitely one of my favorites so far this year. Now that I’ve finished The Billionaire Next Door, I can’t to get to know Eli, the third Crane brother!



“Why is it you look like you’re thinking something sinister?” he asked, that eyebrow arcing higher. “And don’t lie to me, Dimples. I have a sixth sense.” She watched his slow smile, white teeth appearing as his trimmed beard parted. Her nether regions buzzed like she’d sat on a vibrating phone.

“I’m surprised . . .” she started, feeling daring. Must be the Kona coffee.


“Because I expected you to induct me into the Mile High Club by now. This is my first private flight.” She looked at him through her lashes, her coy smile in place.

Tag wore an all-out grin, which made her inordinately pleased. Where she was concerned, he wasn’t immune. And she liked that. A lot.

“Excuse me.” Smoothly, he shut his laptop, stood, and walked from cabin to cockpit.

Okay. That was interesting. She hadn’t expected him to leave. Maybe she didn’t have the same power over him as he had over her.

She turned to look out the window, but the nighttime landscape was nothing but blackness. She imagined a sea of clouds and blue skies once the sun rose, anticipating being someplace where the high was above freezing. She wondered what the temperature was on—

“Let’s go.” Her hand was snatched a moment later as Tag pulled her out of her seat and led her to the bedroom.

“Wait,” she said through her laughter as she hustled after him. “What are you doing?”

In the bedroom, he released her, closed the door, and whipped off his shirt. She gasped, her eyes eating up his tanned muscles and bulky arms.

“Making you a member.” He caught the back of her head in his hand and kissed her. She melted beneath his touch. She was hopelessly attracted to him. Just an absolute goner.

When she caught a breath of air, she said, “Where did you go?”

“Told the pilot to take the long way.”

“There’s a longer way to Hawaii?”

“There is now.”
