Publisher's Summary

"On your knees...."

Saint Jordan Killian Black. 

A gazillionaire with a panty-melting smirk, and a soul as dark as his name. 

I wanted a child. He wanted a willing slave. 

I wanted someone to break me and build me up again.... He wanted no emotions, no connection.

A simple transaction, that's what he said it would be. I needed something in me to shatter, so I could finally live. He promised that he was the one...who'd bring me to the edge.

Show me how it could be between a man and a woman.... Just...you know...no sentiments involved. I thought I was willing to do as he commanded. 

After the nightmare life that I'd led, I hoped that I could walk away with one thing that belonged to me: my own flesh and blood. My baby. That was the deal I had made with the Mafia; I hadn't expected to develop feelings for the father of my child. 

Definitely hadn't meant to fall in love with the man I must betray to get my freedom....

Note: This is Victoria and Saint's story. Features a possessive, snarly billionaire and the woman he'd do anything to keep safe. The Big Bad Billionaire series intertwines with the Arranged Marriage Dark Mafia Romance series. Each book is a stand-alone and promises a pulse-pounding HEA.

It is a hard no for me

Sad that I wasted a credit…they aren’t inexpensive.
Too many fucking fucks to really enjoy the story. Win some, lose some.
Love you Shane East.

Takes two to tango!

Saint Jordan Killian Caldwell is one of the seven. All billionaires, together they face "an incident" that has haunted them for years. It's a well-guarded secret and none of them will speak about it, even to their loved ones. Victoria (Gigi) is on a mission. Bit by bit, she tells her story of how she needs to use Saint to save her friend. At their very first meeting, Saint is completely and inexplicably drawn to her and it bothers him to no end. He's not the feelings type of guy, but he can't stop ogling her and imagining things that he shouldn't. Gigi is similarly struck by his eyes, his dominance, his unmistakable power. When he directs his dirty talk and dirty deeds at her, she is sucked right in and it's game on. Both of them have sad stories to tell and they are revealed throughout the book. Saint isn't the hero I wanted him to be when he turned on her or treated her coldly. I wanted Gigi to get up and walk away because he didn't deserve her but, in the next breath, he realized that he couldn't let her out of his sight because he wanted to protect her. If they didn't trust each other enough to share their secrets, anything they had together was shallow and purely physical. Saint should have lost her when he rejected her, but it wasn't the end of their story. The HEA was exceptional and it was nice to have the seven together again. My only disappointment is a big one for me. Cheating is one of my triggers and I was thoroughly offended when Saint set Gigi up to walk in on him with another woman in front of him on her knees. If this were before he met Gigi, perhaps to show that he was a manwhore, no problem. Big problem when he does it on purpose. It makes me cringe and disrespect him, especially when it happens so soon in the story. It took awhile for me to tolerate him, let alone like him, but then I came to love him. If you aren't opposed to cheating, or anything resembling it, this is an automatic read for you. The writing is very good and I love the characters, so I'm taking away only one star. The narration is wonderfully done by Shane East and Faye Adele. I always expect the very best from Shane, especially that sexy British accent, and he doesn't disappoint. Faye's voices are equally well-done and these two narrators blend together well.

Absolutely amazing

I love this series and with it being in audiobook Oh My. I can’t pick a favorite out of the 7 yet. The narrators are fantastic and did a wonderful job.

Sass, class, and ass (just because it rhymes)....

Could not stop listening! This is 2nd in the series but could be a standalone in my opinion. Love the humor, but all the emotions are present (good, bad and everything in between) - kudos to the narrators, both were excellent!

Big Bad Billionaires Series

The Billionaire's Secret: Enemies to Lovers Fake Marriage Romance (Big Bad Billionaires Book 2) is excellently written and the writing style is exquisite and captivating. I absolutely love the riddles and they are difficult to figure out but so much fun trying. I love the humorous moments and the sweet ones too. Saint is the perfect alpha male you want to read about. Victoria is the queen of sass and very witty she makes the perfect leading lady and Saint's match. Off the charts chemistry with salacious moments between Saint and Victoria drenched through the pages. The world building aspect this author has created is intricately weaved with intriguing supporting character's who you want to know more about. I'm so excited to listen the next novel in the series which is Weston and Amelie's story. I absolutely loved everything about this billionaire romance audio. A must listen page turner.

Shane East, Faye Adele's exceptional performance brought Victoria aka Gigi and Saint's explosive love to realistic life. Shane's inflection is intoxicating. I am addicted to british accents and his is so smooth and easy listening. His inflection voices the different emotions Saint felt throughout the story. I love Faye's attitude as she brought out Victoria's sass and wittyness. Her inflection is beguiling. I love it and can listen all day. Excellent dual narration.

A must listen!!

Must listen to/read

This is the second book in the series, and it's fantastic. I highly recommend that you read the first book so that you better understand what these seven brothers, not related by blood but by circumstances, endured. The two books reveal more about them. Saint is an alphahole to many but a feisty woman may have other plans for him. I love how Ms Steele develops these two complicated people. I want to say so much more about them but don't want to give out spoilers. I will say that some mysteries will be solved, but not all of them. This book will have you on the edge of your seat and not wanting to stop listening to it.

The narrators did an outstanding job of making the listener experience the emotions of these characters. They completely enveloped me into the story. Both are extremely talented storytellers.I could listen to them all day long. I highly recommend this Audible book unless dark, sexy books aren't to your liking. This book has several twists and turns that make it exciting. Then at the end we are teased with the knowledge of which brother's story will be next. Please hurry with the audiobook so that I have some fingernails left. Lol

Hot

Loved the dual narration of Shane East and Faye Adele.

I so wanted to tell Mr Caldwell off, and I started to like him ..
Victoria and Saint, can't stop the pull and chemistry between them. Both a perfect match for each other.
Both have emotional baggage.
Together they are hot.
A great story.
Loved.

I do love an alphahole

This storyline gets more and more intriguing as the series goes on. With great characters and lots of humour it’s very enjoyable. A fantastic performance from both Faye and Shane.

Wow wow wow

This one has so much amazing story packed into one delightful book. I love an alpha male and this book delivered in spades. This is an author that knows how to write powerful and interesting characters that also aren’t perfect. This is what I’m after in a billionaire alpha author.

I’m always a little wary with enemies to lovers as I love this trope so much and I’ve seen so many books where it’s missed the mark. This book delivers what it promises and I couldn’t be happier.
