My favorite Maverick Billionaire story so far! Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully did a fantastic job of telling Evan and Paige’s story with compassion and love. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
Evan Collins is the man with the Midas touch. Having left his hard childhood behind him, the tech genius vowed to one day have everything. But when he discovers that his marriage is built on lies, the only people he can trust now are the Mavericks–and the woman who has always been there for him: Paige, the sister of his soon-to-be ex-wife.
Paige Ryan has always loved Evan Collins, a secret she’s hugged close to her heart for nine long years. But when her sister’s devastating betrayal is revealed, Paige can’t keep her feelings hidden any longer.
Paige is a beacon of light for Evan. Despite believing he needs to keep the walls around his heart stronger than ever, he’s irresistibly drawn to her sweet, pure heart–and the undeniable sparks flaring between them. She’s the only one he trusts to help him face the darkness of his past head-on before it destroys him. But will their forbidden romance end up destroying them both?
IRRESISTIBLE IN LOVE is an exciting and emotional contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully! The Maverick Billionaires are sexy, self-made men from the wrong side of town who survived hell together and now have everything they ever wanted. But when each Maverick falls head-over-heels for an incredible woman he never saw coming, he will soon find that true love is the only thing he ever really needed…
Finally! The WITCH is gone. I could not wait to see where Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully were going to bring Evan … how they were going to resolve the issue of Whitney. But, the way they brought this story together was incredible.
If you have read the four previous Maverick Billionaires stories, you know the hell that Evan went through during his marriage. His one light spot was Paige. She was his best friend, his salvation. Unfortunately, she is also his wife’s sister. As everything falls apart around him, he disappears to sort out his life only to come back to everyone a little disappointed but understanding. The, there’s Paige … the one person who should not be standing by his side, just waiting to read him the riot act for the way he treated his brother, Susan and Bob … and, her.
Paige would never leave Evan’s side … even to side with her sister. A dying promise has made her regret what she let Whitney get away with. But the lies, the way she deceived Evan have finally caught up with her and there is no way she will stand with her. Putting her big-girl panties on, Paige goes for what she wants without thinking twice about the one person who only ever put her down, made her feel guilty. It’s her time and she’s going to show Evan what true love is really all about.
But, of course, there’s a twist. A twist that has Even really doubting himself. Has him reliving his past and wondering just what he can offer the beautiful, loving, sweet Paige. It takes a trip down memory lane, an understanding Foster Family, a patient Paige and a toy to make him see just what he was refusing to see. As trust and forgiveness finally fill Evan’s heart, so does the love that he always had for Paige.
I think this may have been my favorite Maverick Billionaires story so far. It was fiery, intriguing. You had no idea which way Evan was going to turn. You knew that Paige would be right by his side as he tried to figure everything out. You knew that you would cheer when Whitney got her come-uppance. And, she did. The ending was emotional but perfect for this story. The HEA was to die for. Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully did a fantastic job of telling Evan and Paige’s story with compassion and love.
