The Billionaire's Intern

Swerve: St. Martin's. (Billionaire Fairy Tale, Bk. 3). Aug. 2017. 200p. ebk. ISBN 9781250136763. $1.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
This quick-paced stand-alone novella in Ashenden's "Billionaire" universe (after The Billionaire's Virgin and The Billionaire Beast) is very loosely based on Sleeping Beauty, but more the A.N. Roquelaure (Anne Rice) version than Charles Perrault's. Lorenzo de Santis is a ruthless, controlling, alpha male businessman. His new intern Kira Constantin is an ethereally beautiful woman with a party girl reputation who has suffered from ADD all her life. Lorenzo is certain that Kira was put in his path by his father, who is quite probably embezzling from the family firm. Is she part of it? Yet their sexual chemistry is explosive, and they can't keep their hands to themselves. The cat and mouse power games they play could end with both Kira and Lorenzo losing everything.
VERDICT Call it Fifty Shades of Grey lite, the no punishment version. Very flawed characters, plenty of "hold me down so I have no choice" sex, and a paper-thin plot don't really matter, because the ride is a lot of fun. Readers who enjoy quick, steamy, sexy books should like this one.
