One Night with the Billionaire is the first book I have read by this author, it is not the first book I have read from the Men of the Zoiac series. Although I haven’t read every title from it, the ones I have read have been extremely good, and this book is definitely on the list. Bad boy done good, mixed with second chance love on a virtually deserted private island, takes the reader to Latitude 13. The uber exclusive resort available to those with deep enough pockets, looking for privacy and a break from being in the public eye. "I spent too many years wishing you’d see me." Zoe Davenport finds herself on the next private flight out due to a very public scandal involving her now ex-fiance, not being able to keep his dick in his pants and his texts to his interns of the non-sexual nature. Little does she know that the resort and island is owned but her one time, bad boy next-door crush of her youth, Ryder Nash. "You take away my control… You make me want to let you have it. To give every damn shred to you and just fall." The chemistry between these two from the beginning literally steamed up the screen on my Kindle, add to it that Ryder has got the dirty-talking alpha cheekiness down to a tee, and I spent a very happy few hours reading of this couples reconnection. As you would expect a few secrets are revealed as the story progresses, but the author in the main kept the drama light, the sexy times hot, and the angst on a very low simmer. Winner all-round! "I never knew how to dream. Never knew I could." This definitely won’t be my last book by this author, and if you are looking for a couple of hours of reading pleasure then you can’t go far wrong with One Night with the Billionaire. All of the books in this series can be read as standalones so don’t let the fact that this is number nine put you off either.

    *A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for my honest review* I did not like this story very much and I am someone who LOVES a good Billionaire romance. But the feel of this story just was not right and I didn’t like the plot. Zoe Davenport is a princess and she had been raised with wealth and with the knowledge to take over the family law firm.

But suddenly her life is rocked with scandal after scandal. Her fiancé is caught cheating then the media is after her so she runs away to licks her wounds to tropical resort and there she runs into never forgotten, teenage crush, bad boy, Ryder Nash. Ryder dragged himself out of bad situation he was in (poverty ) and went on to make billions. But years ago the girl of his dreams, her father paid him off and sign a stupid contract to stay away from her. Now here is where things go seriously way off track. Basically if Ryder hooks up with Zoe, her father can take away his entire fortune. This is where I just lost interest because Ryder was more in love with money than with wanting to be with the girl of his dreams. I kept going on and trying to read the book but the plot was so ridiculous. I am sorry but I couldn’t buy the plot and I loved the cover and it sounded like a good book. Just not worth reading. It could have been a fantastic book but f it just had more substance. My rating: 3.00 stars ***

    3.5-4 stars. Much like the rest of this series, this was an entertaining read, with drama, romance and hotness. We have Zoe and Ryder, meeting once again at this exclusive resort. Things had changed a lot for Ryder, going from the guy people looked down to, to a billionaire. What neither of them knew was that back in school, they both liked the other, however, they also had some pretty big prejudices against the other that prevented them to do something.

All in all, I liked their chemistry. It wasn’t something that came out of nowhere in this case, but something that had been building up for years. That brought something different to the story, since they kind of knew each other, but also they had to erase all their misconceptions. I hated Zoe’s life, her father was a complete and controlling ass. I liked that she was finally breaking free of that and finally figuring out what she wanted and who she was. It’s not easy to go out of your comfort zone and actually having to face life on your own. She needed a break after living with those parents, lol. I liked her fire and personality, and I wanted her to get the guy. She truly deserved happiness. :-) I also liked Ryder, he truly was a self-made man, with a lot of drive and work ethics. He was also funny, smart and hot as hell. So he really was the whole package. The only thing was the thing with Zoe’s dad. I get why he did it, and really, he never thought he would see Zoe again. However, I found it really unrealistic that something like that existed. Then again, I’m not millionaire, maybe those things exist somewhere, lol. All in all, it was a fun read. And more since we finally got to Sagittarius, lol. ;-) Oh, that ass tattoo. *Thank you to Entangled Publishing for providing an ARC in exchange of my honest opinion*

When he is publicly shamed over an affair she needs to leave DC. A friend suggests she goes incognito to an island escape which is soon to open. Coincidentally the owner of the island resort, Ryder, used to live next door to Zoe. She fantasised about being one of the revolving door of women that she watched making out with him in his yard. Little does she know that Ryder's wealth was founded on money her father gave him to stay away from her. Under the terms of the agreement with Zoe's father, Ryder is liable to give her father EVERYTHING if he breaks the terms of their agreement. When they entered into the agreement that meant very little, but now Ryder's businesses are worth multi-millions. Yet, apparently Ryder is willing to drop everything (and jeopardise the employment of all his staff) for sex with Zoe. Couldn't get past the situation, sex seemed a bit sudden.

Zoe is a disillusioned ex-fiancée of a cheating politician who needs to get away from the scandal, so takes up her friend's offer to get away from it all and heads to a private resort owned by someone she and her friend had gone to high school with. Imagine her surprise when she finds the owner of the resort is her teenaged crush, Ryder. That they fall into each other is inevitable, and the sparks are flying all over the place. But, Ryder has a secret that could destroy their burgeoning relationship, and when Zoe finds out, it could be the end of them, and of everything Ryder's worked so hard to achieve since he last saw Zoe. I really like both Zoe and Ryder, individually and together. They're both sweet, and their chemistry is seriously hot. I like that Ryder's brand of billionaire isn't the typical cold, arrogant shark of the boardroom and bedroom. He's down to earth and funny, and is just glad to be able to spend time with the woman he's had a crush on for years. Zoe is perfect for Ryder, strong and smart, and her teenaged crush is evolving into so much more. If you like your billionaire stories that take place outside of the boardroom, then One Night with the Billionaire should be on your TBR list. I received an ARC through NetGalley for an honest review.

    One Night With The Billionaire was a fast little read—and my first time dipping my toes into the Men of the Zodiac series—and I loved every delicious second of it. Ryder was the bad boy next door and Zoe thought that she was invisible to him although she was his secret desire yet he didn’t he think he was good enough for her. Zoe’s father didn’t think Ryder was good enough either and paid him a tidy sum to stay away from Zoe. Now, ten years later, Zoe’s seeking escape from the scandal cause by h One Night With The Billionaire was a fast little read—and my first time dipping my toes into the Men of the Zodiac series—and I loved every delicious second of it. Ryder was the bad boy next door and Zoe thought that she was invisible to him although she was his secret desire yet he didn’t he think he was good enough for her. Zoe’s father didn’t think Ryder was good enough either and paid him a tidy sum to stay away from Zoe. Now, ten years later, Zoe’s seeking escape from the scandal cause by her ex-fiancé and finds herself at Ryder’s Caribbean resort, that’s not yet open to the public, and the chemistry between them is hotter than the air outside. There’s just one little problem, if Ryder breaks the contract with Zoe’s father, he loses everything. I was a tad bit worried that I wasn’t going to like Ryder so imagine my surprise when he ended up on my list of favorite heroes. Ryder didn’t have the best of childhoods. His father was abusive and because he lived in a house that was once the servants’ quarters he felt as though he lived in the shadow of his rich neighbors. Even though he was in love with Zoe, he never believed he had a chance with her so when her father offered him money to leave her alone, he saw his chance to make a better life for himself and he took it. I have to admire Ryder. The way he received the money may have been a bit questionable but he worked hard to make something of himself. And he never forget Zoe, so when she showed up at his resort, he knew he was in trouble and although he struggled with honoring the contract of following his heart he finally figured out which was more important. While I felt bad for Zoe because of what she was going through because of her ex-fiancé, she also kind of annoyed me at the start because she wasn’t her own person. She was a lawyer in her father’s D.C. law firm because that’s what her father wanted. She was engaged to a high-profile politician who was a cheater because that’s what her father wanted. I was really rooting for to take control of her life and while she fought the attraction to Ryder, she finally gave in and realized that’s what she wanted in her life. Yet when she realized that Ryder could lose it all because of her, she was ready to get back on a plane, go to D.C. and give in to her father. I was really hoping she was would have put up more of a fight. I loved the fact that Ryder and Zoe knew and had been hot for each other but neither had acted on it so it added that much more intensity to the chemistry. I also liked that they didn’t immediately fall into bed together. They knew each other before but that was ten years ago, so it was nice to see that they took their time and got to know each other. Although when they finally did fall into bed, it was definitely steamy. So, I wasn’t thrilled by the fact Ryder accepted a bribe from Zoe’s father to stay away from her but if I’m being honest, it was one of the reasons that I wanted to read this book. I was eager to see how it was handled because the money that Ryder received to stay away from Zoe changed his life. It pulled him out of poverty—and out of the horrible family situation he was in—and with a little work, it turned him into a billionaire and if he breaks the contract by exploring something with Zoe, then he loses it all. While it’s a little skeevy, I have to admit it was bloody intriguing and it made for great internal conflict for Ryder. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick little read but I didn’t feel as though the plot was rushed. It was steady and well developed. I’m really looking forward of catching up with this series and reading more from this imprint.

It's fun to escape with a fantasy of a hot, uber rich man. I was drawn to this book by the yummy cover. I couldn't wait to go away to a tropical island and watch a love story unfold. Zoe Davenport is a princess. She's been raised with wealth and privilege and to take over her fathers prestigious law firm. She's on top of the world. Or at least she should be. Zoe's life is rocked by scandal when her fiancé is caught cheating. Needing to get away from the media frenzy, she heads to an exclusive tropical resort. And straight into the arms of the one person who she has never forgotten, her teenage crush, next door neighbour bad boy, Ryder Nash. Ryder has dragged himself out of poverty and made billions. He has finally found some peace and solitude on a tropical island, running the resort he owns. His life is thrown off balance when the girl, the princess from next door, comes sauntering back into his life. But he can't have her. Her father paid him off when he was 18 to stay away from her, and made him sign a ridiculous contract that could ruin him. The contract. This thing was so over the top ridiculous. I had a hard time taking that part of the plot seriously. Basically if Ryder hooks up with Zoe, her father can take away his entire fortune. See? Ridiculous! The entire first half of the book was them bickering and Ryder trying to keep his hands off of Zoe. I had a hard time getting a real feel for their attraction. Ryder seemed almost angry that he wanted her and man, he was a crazy tease. His constant back and forth and heavy flirting got old fast. I kept thinking, sink or swim buddy but just do something! Poor Zoe is constantly struggling with whiplash from Ryder's indecisiveness. I wanted to love these two but I also wanted to knock some sense into them. Both of them were flighty and it honestly drove me nuts. I could have liked this book so much more if it just had more substance. A bit more girth to the plot. Everything happened quickly and the contract details just made it so unbelievable. I know you can't expect "real" all the time in fiction. But I had a hard time buying that a contract that stated if a guy hooks up with a girl that her daddy doesn't like, then he forfeits his entire empire. I couldn't swallow that. It was laughable actually. If you are looking for a quick, easy/fluffy, beach read, then this book may be for you. But I like to be able to buy into the plot a bit more in the books I read.

    There are some authors whose books you just know you’re going to really connect with and thoroughly enjoy - and for me, Sarah Ballance is one such author. Her writing style brings to life the scenes and even some of her minor characters are charismatic, well rounded and delightfully portrayed - in this story I loved Aggie!

Her writing style brings to life the scenes and even some of her minor characters are charismatic, well rounded and delightfully portrayed - in this story I loved Aggie! Zoe Davenport is a high profile lawyer, heir to a law firm built up by her father but now she’s trying to escape from the press after her ex fiancé, Senator Todd Randall or Senator Selfie as he is now known, was involved in a very public scandal. A friend has arranged for her to visit the soon to open idyllic private resort of Latitude 13 but she wasn’t expecting to find the owner is the bad boy who lived next door to her when she was a teenager, Ryder Nash. She crushed on him then, but he never acknowledged her, Now she finds the magnetism is still there - and it is mutual - but he seems reluctant to give in to the attraction . . . . Can he keep resisting her? Can she keep resisting him? What will happen when reality intrudes again? How will she react when she finds out why Ryder left her alone then and really should still leave her alone now? This is a different take on the billionaire romance and a great addition to the Men of the Zodiac series. I loved the tattoo references and the drama in the story. It is another great book to escape into and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes bad boys doing well and becoming great guys - and nasty, controlling fathers being thwarted! Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

He is dying to see her again and see if the spark they once shared is still there, she on the other hand has no interest in sparking anything and just wants a little piece and quiet... This was my first experience with Ms. Ballance's writing and I must admit that it took me by surprise, I found myself completely addicted to the story after only reading a few sentences. The story line pulled me right in and had me burning the midnight oil just to finish it...and I have to say it was DEFINITELY worth the loss of sleep. These characters had me smiling the whole way through...and left me blushing on more than one occasion!! The banter between them was priceless!! Highly recommend you add this little literary treat to the top of your reading list, it is SO GOOD!!

    One Night With The Billionaire is about so much more than the title implies. It is the story of a bad boy who made good. The princess tarnished by scandal. The righting of old wrongs. The fact that Zoe and Ryder feel the need to be so very unnecessarily 'cloak and dagger' about her identity from the start, is enough to throw one for a loop. He does own the island after all, so what he wants to get out will etc...etc...

The real fun of this read doesn't start until all the formality of reintroduction and the logistics of "I'm sleeping where and doing what" end. Ryder is the consummate Sag. Confident and sure of who he is and what he wants. He is unafraid to to pursue Zoe. Taking care all the while to be sure that she is comfortable with the progression of things. Also very much in keeping with the traits of his star sign, is the fact that he has chosen to surround himself with the people that have meant the most to him throughout his life. Though the romance between Zoe and Ryder is very hot and sweet. It is the backstory and blackmail that Zoe's father resorted to, in order to 'protect' his daughter, that provides the dramatic hook for the reader and make that past bargain relevant to the scope of their futures.

    This book was very good. It was about Zoe Davenport and Ryder Nash. Zoe and Ryder were neighbors growing up only Zoes family had money and Ryders family didn't.

In no way did this sway either my review or my rating! So this series really hasn't spent much time on my radar. However, last month I picked up the previous book since it was by one of my favorite authors. So when this one came up not long after I finished that one and I happened to notice it was centered around "my sign" I figured why the heck not. I had also read my first book by Sarah Ballance and adored it mostly so it just furthered my decision to read this. The good news after finishing, I really liked it. Well, once again, mostly. The bad news? The ending has left me, well disappointed if I'm being honest. See, I'm sensing a pattern. And not in a good way. Sarah Ballance writes wonderful characters that you can easily and very quickly get attached to. Her storytelling is absolutely lovely. Both good things. The bad is that you have a couple who meet for the first time, and yes basically Ryder and Zoe count because even though he was the bad boy next door...they never spoke or interacted, except maybe to stare at each other from the other side of the fence. They knew nothing about the other one. In both books I've read, things get intense and heat up really fast. Which is perfectly fine, I always feel the strong connection and sparks within the pairing. But from the point they meet you get like, 2 weeks worth of mostly sex or lusting after each other and very little of the "getting to know you" phase. Then by the end of the book, once again 2 weeks later, L bombs are dropped. I had been hoping it was just a fluke with the first book I read, but now with this other one...I'm guessing that's not the case. Insta-love is such a bummer. I truly feel this would be my only complaint in both cases. But that's a big one. The characters were so much fun though. Ryder was very much the gruff alpha male type. Oh my word and he had the most delicious dirty mouth. I swear when he would get all up in Zoe's personal space and start whispering all the naughty things he wanted to do to her...I had the urge to start yelling at my Kindle for him to start acting on those things. Sigh. His intensity was all kinds of sexy. I think I should kind of take back what I said earlier because I do have one complaint about Ryder. He had a pretty rough childhood that was mentioned but it felt somewhat pointless, except maybe to explain his drive and acceptance of Zoe's dad's payoff. I wish it would have added more depth to his character though and maybe be more of an issue in the present. Zoe was pretty awesome herself. I appreciated the fact that she wasn't completely spineless. Her dad has basically controlled her entire life and all of her decisions since she was little. So I was expecting her to be more of a pushover, but she was far from weak. I loved watching her grow even stronger than she first appears and really stand up for herself. See that fire inside her when she takes control of her own life. She was a really great character. Insta-love aside, there is a lot to love within this book. Like I said the characters are all completely lovable. Even the side characters, I love Sarah Ballance's writing style, and the setting was total paradise. Like I want to go stay on Ryder's resort island and never leave! However, as desperate as I was to want to continue with the Chase Brothers series of hers that I fell in love with...doubts are sinking in. I feel like I'm willing to take one more shot and keep my fingers crossed the relationship doesn't develop at warp speed. There's only so much of the early I love yous a person can take. Thanks to Entangled Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book.

But one look at the exceptionally sexy resort owner, and Zoe wonders if she's escaped scandal just long enough to land herself in even hotter water...   Except that Ryder Nash isn't exactly a stranger.

What Zoe doesn't know is that all those years ago, her father paid Ryder off...to keep him away from her.   And if Ryder gives into the fiery attraction that rages between them-even for a moment-he'll lose everything all over again...       BUY LINKS   Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/One-Night-Billi...   Barnes and Noble:  http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/one-n...   Google Play Books: https://play.google.com/store/books/d... _One_Night_with_the_Billionaire?id=DuBfCgAAQBAJ&hl=en   Ibooks:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/one-...   Kobo:  https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebo...     REVIEW:  ONE NIGHT WITH THE BILLIONAIRE BY SARAH BALLANCE   One Night with the Billionaire by Sarah BallanceMy rating: 4 of 5 starsI liked Zoe she was neurotic, iron-willed and passionate. Ryder was aloof, alpha and ambitious. What they each lacked was faith in one another and the capacity to trust their feelings. The fear of how others would react and what they stood to loose almost cost them what was most important. Recently, I discovered author Sarah Ballance while reading another series and I am proud to say that she is an author worth seeking out. The ability to make a reader feel for characters that they may not like is a rare gift. One Night with the Billionaire is a HOT read. Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.View all my reviews     About Author:  Sarah Ballance   Sarah and her husband of what he calls “many long, long years” live on the mid-Atlantic coast with their six young children, all of whom are perfectly adorable when they’re asleep. She never dreamed of becoming an author, but as a homeschooling mom, she often jokes she writes fiction because if she wants anyone to listen to her, she has to make them up. (As it turns out, her characters aren’t much better than the kids). When not buried under piles of laundry, she may be found adrift in the Atlantic (preferably on a boat) or seeking that ever-elusive perfect writing spot where not even the kids can find her.She loves creating unforgettable stories while putting her characters through an unkind amount of torture—a hobby that has nothing to do with living with six children. (Really.) Though she adores nail-biting mystery and edge-of-your-seat thrillers, Sarah writes in many genres including contemporary and ghostly paranormal romance.

I was captivated with the characters’ backgrounds that I just had to keep reading until the very end. So far I’ve read a couple books from the Men of the Zodiac series, and I haven’t been disappointed at all, so I highly recommend reading them as well. As for this particular book, it begins by introducing Zoe Davenport, she has the perfect life thanks to her father that has been the one able to control it ever since she was little. Now after ending her very public engagement, she wants to get away from everyone involved (including her family) until news of her cheating fiancée disappear from the media. Soon she finds herself being whisked away to a private resort under a different name to secure her privacy. Little did she know that the owner of the resort was non other than teenage crush, Ryder Nash. Now she has to deal with seeing him all the time while sharing a private villa together. But as the two start to spend more time together, the more she wants to throw everything out the window and actually pursue a relationship with Ryder, but she can’t help to feel that Ryder is hiding something from her. And she is willing to do anything to find out what that secret is. Ryder Nash didn’t grew up with much, while he was in high school trying to make ends meet, he was secretly wishing to get out of the town that always looked down on him. But when he caught his neighbor looking at him, he knows right away that he can’t deny the attraction that he has towards Zoe, but before he could make a move on her, someone gets in the way and that is when his departure comes in handy, while making himself a billionaire years later. Now he has to get ready to open his new resort and wants everything to be perfect for the opening day, but when he sees Zoe arrive everything changes. Soon he has to find a way to keep himself away from her or risk losing everything that he has worked so hard to get. From the start it is evident that both of the main characters have had difficult pasts, but having already met before takes their chemistry to the next level. I personally liked Ryder, he is your typical badass character with a soft side to him that made him likable. There were times when I felt that the story was a bit slow, but as I kept reading on it got so much better. The ending was great, it tied the story nicely which I liked. Overall, I recommend the story to those that want to read a quick romantic story full of surprises and steamy scenes. :) ***ARC provided by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review.***

    Zoe and Ryder were neighbors during their teen years, but nothing more than distant students at the same school. Her house was larger, her family wealthier, while he lived in a small house with a drunken father, leading him to some reckless behavior and a bad boy reputation.

Her house was larger, her family wealthier, while he lived in a small house with a drunken father, leading him to some reckless behavior and a bad boy reputation. Fast forward 10 years, and we see Zoe dumping a cheating fiance with a large scandal as that guy was big in politics. She is now a lawyer for her daddy's firm, on track to take over that firm when he heads off for his own political dreams hopefully. In other words, they are a very visible, prominent family. Ryder though is now the surprise, as he has made it in life, now owning his own island and opening a luxury resort, the place where Zoe ends up hiding from the press after her big breakup. It's a romance, so you can guess the main gist of the rest. The setup really isn't bad at all, and the blurb sounded interesting, old classmates meeting up years later in a second chance. However, despite that setup, this book did not work for me at all. First of all, these two people apparently didn't say more than 10 words to each in high school and had what appeared to be a mutual impression of longing yet dislike. In other words, there as absolutely zero getting to know each other back then let alone a relationship. Despite this, they both carry a torch of some kind, to the point where our hero has used her memory to inspire him and our heroine has apparently kept a flame going for him all this time. Again, despite never apparently even having a conversation back then. On top of that, we get to know the reason our hero never approached her back then and why he cannot now. That reason is completely absurd honestly, having to do with her father and threats. Once I then add in a bodyguard (him falling into that business alone is not believable) dabbling in real estate only to make it so big he is a billionaire by 28, I just admittedly did not enjoy this book at all because I could not buy into this at all. It was way too over the top in too many areas. Oh, and his bartender is a CEO, his pilot does extreme sports, there is a copilot who is actually a fighter pilot, etc., etc., etc. It's a romance so probably one or two things can be overlooked, but not all those things taken together for me. The writing? Not bad at all, though it felt a little chaotic and crazy at points with the hero jumping around in thoughts and initiative. I have read and really enjoyed other Sarah Ballance novels. I will definitely look into other novels of hers, either backlist or future novels. This particular book though really really was not to my taste. My thanks to the publisher via Netgalley for providing me a complimentary copy of this book to read and provide an honest review.

    Zoe Davenport has lived her life trying to fit into the role created by her overly ambitious father for her. Even her engagement to an up and coming senator is part of a larger plan to create a politically powerful dynasty with an eye on the White House. However, now that her fiancé’s indiscretions are available digitally for all to see, he is firmly in the ex category and Zoe is off to paradise to lay low until the scandal blows over. But paradise comes with the most tempting man ever, her teen Zoe Davenport has lived her life trying to fit into the role created by her overly ambitious father for her. Even her engagement to an up and coming senator is part of a larger plan to create a politically powerful dynasty with an eye on the White House. However, now that her fiancé’s indiscretions are available digitally for all to see, he is firmly in the ex category and Zoe is off to paradise to lay low until the scandal blows over. But paradise comes with the most tempting man ever, her teenage crush: Ryder Nash. Ryder grew up next to Zoe and she was out of his league back then. Now fate has thrown her in his path again and she's his for the taking. The only problem is getting involved with her would cost him literally everything. Will he be able to resist her? Maybe one night will be enough. But what happens when reality intrudes? Maybe she might just be worth it. ONE NIGHT WITH THE BILLIONAIRE is another great story by Ms. Ballance with fun and witty dialogue, great chemistry and enjoyable characters. Ryder is a very appealing mix of the demanding, rock-your-world man in bed and very sweet and thoughtful out of it. Zoe for the most part struggled with her desire to please her father and her need to carve out her own identity separate from her father and his grand plans for her and she succeeded in the end. I enjoyed this story because it's a major departure from the usual billionaire story. Ryder and Zoe are very normal and struggle with their rekindled feelings for each other and the impact of these on their lives when reality intrudes, especially because Zoe's life is back in D.C. while Ryder lives on the island. While the contract with Zoe's father, which set everything in motion ten years earlier did not feel realistic to me, it was the catalyst for all of Ryder's conflicted feelings and much of his hot and cold reactions to Zoe. I enjoyed the creative resolution to the terms of the contract and absolutely loved that my favorite couple - Chloe and Knox from The Marriage Agenda - made an appearance here. ONE NIGHT WITH THE BILLIONAIRE is a fun story that I highly recommend and I look forward to more from Ms. Ballance.

    Very cute, very fast read, with likable characters. The plot seems a little far-fetched at times, but as a whole it's a very entertaining and sexy read.

    A man that had never forgotten the girl next door but there was something that he never had before seeing her again, love. I love reading stories about handsome men that say that they don’t do relationships but in reality they just haven’t met the right woman or the woman that they wanted got away.

I love reading stories about handsome men that say that they don’t do relationships but in reality they just haven’t met the right woman or the woman that they wanted got away. That was somewhat the case for Ryder Nash he had a thing for his next door neighbor but he never approached her and didn’t tell her anything. Then something happened between him and her father something that changed everything. Zoe Davenport is a beautiful woman that was about to get married but then a scandal broke out that involved her fiancée and that’s when she needed to get away. Her friend ended up finding the perfect place for her to lie low but what came as a surprise was apparently she knew the owner of the resort but wasn’t it he owned the whole island. Zoe and Ryder had not seen each other in 10 years and oh my was the chemistry between them sizzling. When he had agreed to have her on the resort and had the perfect cover he didn’t know that that person was Zoe. He didn’t find out until he needed her information for the flight. Zoe couldn’t believe who she was seeing it was the yummy neighbor that she had a crush on but she was not going to let him know that. But no matter what the chemistry was too intense between them that it was not to long before they ended up sharing a very passionate kiss and of course things didn’t end there later on. But Ryder knew that they couldn’t have anything because of what happened 10 years ago there was a big price that he would pay if it leaked out that Zoe and he were together. Zoe knew what she needed to do and she needed to straighten everything out but Ryder had another plan. One Night with the Billionaire was a good read that I enjoyed. The dialogue made me smile and the characters were great. The chemistry between these two was steaming HOT. I loved the way Ryder was with Zoe I knew instantly that even though he didn’t do relationships he was not getting to let her go. The pace of this book was a little rushed but yay who am I to interfere in love. Totally recommend this read! Received ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an Honest Review

I got a good feel for the story right away and liked both Zoe and Ryder immediately. I like that push and pull they had on each other, it made for some really great chemistry. Wonderful build to their relationship and I Loved how it all played out. Zoe Davenport is the spoiled little rich girl, who has always done what her father wanted. Which has put her smack dab in the middle of the newest scandal in DC with her fiancé or ex- fiancé, Senator Todd Randall being caught sexting with the interns who worked under him literally in his congressional office. Since this scandal could cause her politically driven clients to be skittish about her being their lawyer, she asks an old friend to help her get away. So with a fake name and a undercover story she finds herself on her way to a perfect idyllic private luxurious resort. Ryder Nash is the owner of the resort a world class destination that guaranteed anonymity and was the Hot Bad boy that use to live next door to Zoe, but she couldn't stand him. He was the Hot Bad boy with a loud car and a new girl every weekend. They haven't seen each other since his graduation when he up and left town. He has come a long way since then and although he knows she is coming she doesn't have a clue, who is about to be the old fellow school chum who is helping her hide from the scandal. So when these two come face to face both of their long lost desires come back to the surface and they find out that the chemistry between them is sizzling. But there are secrets that Ryder is keeping that could cost him everything if he acts on his feelings. But when your own private fantasy is within your grasp, would you let it walk away? You have got to read this so you can enjoy the sweet, heartbreaking, sizzling heat that is Zoe and Ryder. Loved it! Highly recommended!

    What a fun and hot story! Admit it; we have all had a secret crush on that one boy growing up; and what a dream it would be if he turned out to be as hot and sexy talking as billionaire Ryder Nash! If the cover didn’t draw you into this book, Sarah Ballance’s description of Ryder and his eight-pack abs definitely would have hooked you in the first chapter. Zoe Davenport was the good girl from next door that had been groomed all her life to take over her father’s successful law firm. This included What a fun and hot story! Admit it; we have all had a secret crush on that one boy growing up; and what a dream it would be if he turned out to be as hot and sexy talking as billionaire Ryder Nash! If the cover didn’t draw you into this book, Sarah Ballance’s description of Ryder and his eight-pack abs definitely would have hooked you in the first chapter. Zoe Davenport was the good girl from next door that had been groomed all her life to take over her father’s successful law firm. This included her high profile fiancée that was being groomed for the presidency. The ideal life came crashing around her when her “lets wait until marriage” fiancée was caught in the midst of a high profile sexting scandal, complete with pictures. Zoe’s old high school buddy that works in law enforcement offers her an escape to an exclusive island resort that hasn’t opened yet owned by a former high school friend. In the midst of all drama, the owner’s name is never mentioned and Zoe is just thankfully for the time to regroup. Imagine Zoe’s surprise when the owner of the resort turns out to be her high school crush from next door! Ryder Nash was the bad boy from next door that liked fast cars and didn’t seem to have a bright future ahead of him. With a little help, he takes off after high school to never look back on his past. When Ryder’s high school buddy calls to ask a favor, he doesn’t think twice and says yes…imagine his surprise when it turns out to be his high school crush from next door. Sounds like a match made in heaven? There is just one catch and it could cost Ryder everything he has worked all these years to build. Is the attraction worth his fortune? The sexual tension, soul searching, and banter between Zoe and Ryder kept the pages turning until the end! Seriously, this book was GREAT! It was fun to see Chloe and Knox make an appearance from the Marriage Agenda. I also enjoyed the sweet and sassy character of Aggie!
