Publisher's Summary

I never should have agreed to becoming his fake wife....

Sinclair Amadeus Sterling, a.k.a. Mr. Superior Jackass with a God complex.
Who also happens to be my blackmailer...gulp.
Tall, dark, gazillionaire growly pants.
The first time I met him, I kneed him in his very well endowed balls - don't ask!
He had that tightly leashed, controlling air and a smoldering glare that made me damp in seconds.
The only thing that sucks worse than his attitude is his (lack of) sense of humor! Honest.
Sadly, he's also the one who could save my business from going bust. Hell!
So when he offers me the chance to work with him, I can hardly refuse, right?
Only catch? I need to be his pretend wife for - hold your breath - 30 days.
I should have turned and run right then, but....
He has the connections to help my sister's failing health, not to mention the money to wipe away my debt.
And yeah, that...sneaky video recording of him getting me off. OMG!
Besides, it's only 30 days, right?
It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with London's most notorious bachelor.
Then he tells me the real reason for the charade.
And everything changes....

Note: This is a stand-alone enemies to lovers, fake marriage, billionaire romance featuring a hot, possessive billionaire and the curvy spitfire who dares to go toe to toe with him!

Typically arrogant hero and naive push over heroine 🤦🏻‍♀️

Thought on first listen there may have been a little more involved in this story but basically he treats her abhorrently (seriously who preps for anal with a bit of butter and then fucks her fully with a gargantuan) and she rolls over and takes it.. pun intended.
The narration was brilliant the one saving grace .. I won’t be buying this author again..

Wow

This was a great read of a man that didn’t think he could love. A woman looking out for her sister. A little revenge on his part that went wrong and they both fell for each other. A great bunch of friends that all have a connection.
Narration was awesome too.

Great story starting halfway through- but “huh?

I never write reviews- (I should because I listen to audible books literally non-stop other than while I’m at work - unless I’m on my break) but I was reading through others’ reviews and was looking for one particular thing.. the only thing that drove me absolutely crazy was the over-use of “huh?” Omg I swear it got to a point I rolled my eyes every time and my family thought I was perpetually annoyed with them lol! I started and stopped listening to this book having trouble getting through the beginning. Shane East is one of my all time favorite narrators!! The story had me hooked (finally) once I got about half way through. Now I’m on to the next one!

Emotional and Sexual Enemies to Lovers

Thank you, Laxmi, for writing a book that I wanted to know the ending but I didn't want it to end! This book will have several twists that will add so much to the development of these characters. Sin is a ruthless businessman with seemingly little to no redeeming characteristics, but gradually I came to love him. Summer is a loving sister who will do whatever's necessary to save her sister. Summer is sassy and challenges Sin. I love this and Laxmi also lets us hear their inner thoughts which are emotional, funny, and enlightening. There are several passionate and explosive sex and love scenes. Be still my heart!

The narrators are excellent and enhanced this story even more. They are talented storytellers that make the listener experience the emotions of these characters. Faye Adele excellently portrays Summer's spunk, caring nature, fighting spirit, and passion. Shane gives Sin a deep swooning voice and a sexy accent.

I highly recommend this Audible book. I know that a few reviewers hated that Sin cheated on Summer but they were not in a relationship at the time. He did it to emphasize that the relationship they would have was a fake one for business of some sort. But even he regretted doing this to her when he realized how it affected her.

Disappointed

Writing style and cadence were not for me. The main character’s mannerisms were annoying and so we’re her friends. The thing with her dad was all over the place. I couldn’t get into any of the characters and didn’t really believed in them as a couple. I was really hoping that I found a new series to read / listen but I’m going to pass on any more... I don’t want to waste the credits.

Fake

When something bad happens we can let it drive us or break us. Revenge can really be sweet. I really enjoyed the book and I can't wait to read the one I know will come after. It's really well written and I was absorbed from the beginning. It took off like a rocket and never slowed down. Sinclair and Summer's story is awesome.I
I really enjoyed both narrators. I read this before I listened to it. They had pleasant voices and did their roles well.

Not my cup of tea

2.5 stars. I had read snippets of the book in the author's newsletters/emails and it sounded like it would be good. I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. Maybe it was the narrators, but I think it was more that Sinclair was not at all likable and Summer wasn't much better. In real life, he would be in prison for the things he did. I am not sure where she would be, in therapy maybe.

Sinclair sets out to bully Summer into marriage any way he can, not excluding blackmail. Summer wants to represent his new business venture and is willing to let him treat her any way he wants as long as she gets his account. Actually, they deserve each other. There is, of course, more to the story than hot sex on every surface and frequent statements of how much they don't want each other, but not much. Maybe you will like it more than I did.

I was given a copy of this book by the author and am voluntarily reviewing it

Ready for the next Big Bad Billionaire

When I first started listening to this story I absolutely hated Sinclair. He was definitely an alphahole! As the story progressed and Sinclair and Summer started falling in love he became more likable. You find out why he acted so horribly and can sympathize with him.
Anxiously waiting to listen to the other stories in this series!
The narration was excellent also.

The Billionaire's Fake Wife

A really great story and great start for a new series for me.

At the beginning everything was a bit confusing, but after a short while I was totally into the story and enjoyed it.

The narrators did a great job and I'm looking forward to the next book.

Book: The Billionaire’s Fake Wife
Series: Big Bad Billionaires
Author: L. Steele
Narrators: Shane East and new to me Faye Adele

There are seven men mentioned so fingers crossed they will get their own books and also be in audio!

Also, you will want to watch every movie mentioned. You’ve been warned. 🎥 🍿

Minor spoiler: very small OW drama. It happened so quickly even I was ok with it though I still didn’t like it lol

Book is in KU and WS

Loved this even more in Audible!

I had already read this book but just had to listen to it (with the accents!) The chemistry between the two Summer & Sin is just amazing! You have to read this whole series with an open mind but they are all great!! The writing is excellent!

Both readers give a wonderful performance

Both readers give a wonderful performance of a very sub standard book. This may be what some readers are looking for but I definitely was not! It evoked the same emotions in me as too thin toilet paper.

This Book Should Come With A Warning


This is my very first read and listen from Ms. Steele. I received an audiobook giveaway through Facebook Shane East official fan group Shaneiaks.

This is the first book of the Big Bad Billionaires Series and can be read on its own. I did not know what to expect in terms of writing style from the author. I like the film trivias and quotes that were written in the beginning of the chapters and exchanged between the characters. I enjoyed enemies to lovers trope and this book did not disappoint with all the wicked banter between the alphahole hero and the fierce heroine which is my favourite. Although I overall enjoyed this hot steamy book there are scenes which I find uncomfortable and might even be triggers to some readers one of which is workplace harassment.

Brilliant performance from new-to-me narrator Faye Adele and Shane East brought his A game as an Alphahole Sinclair Sterling.

Summer & Sin

Summer doesn’t realise each time she bumps into Sin he’s instigated it . He wants her so he can get back at her Father and he blackmails her into marrying him. Sin tells himself it all for the plan but and he won’t admit to himself his feelings have changed . Summer knows Sin is a alphahole but she has feelings for him as well when Sin realises his feelings are real she doesn’t make it easy and makes him work for it. This is my first book by L. Steele and I enjoyed it I have 2 more in this series to listen too.

Loved listening to Sin and Summer

I read this ages ago, but was lucky enough to get a audible copy of the book. Hearing Sin and Summer is so so good. I just loved the narrative between them. This book, is brilliant. Having read four of the billionaire books, this one is still my favourite 😁😁

Alpha

loved the dual narration of Shane East and Faye Adele , brilliant.

Sit back and enjoy. If you like hot Alpha males, who is a billionaire, intelligent and sexy, oh yes great female heroine. This is for you.
Sinclair is out for revenge and it's on Summer. But little does he know the ride he is in for.

Hot and sexy

bit dark for my taste

this book contains many triggers that some readers may find difficult. I think so much more could have been done with the story, an while I know the story is continued throughout other books I still feel more could have been done with it. it seemed to be half filled with sex that I didn't find particularly appealing and the rest was one quarter story line and one quarter filler. I enjoy are dark romance usually but found myself sat there thinking 'really' to most of it. I don't think I'll be getting the next book in the series.

Loved it.

I'd never listened to anything from this author before but it definitely won't be my last.

I love Shane East the male narrator, and he doesn't disappoint this time either.

The story of enemies to lovers cracks along at a good pace, and there was plenty of intrigue and heat throughout. Definitely a great listen and one I'd recommend having a go with.

Brilliant

This story had me on edge wondering how they were going to get through their differences and find their way and i have to say i am so very very happy that they made it, because their chemistry was next level. Fantastic narration added so much to this story and has cemented itself as one that i know will be a relisten for me.
