Publisher's Summary

Josephine: It was the worst blind date in the history of the universe, until Holden Winters swept in and rescued me.

Are you kidding? Holden Winters?

A scion of the notorious Winters family, Holden is gorgeous, wealthy, and brilliant. He dates socialites and pop stars, not computer science grad students more comfortable in a hoodie than couture.

Our night together was a fantasy...and a huge mistake.

Holden: I don't usually steal other guy's dates. I don't have to. A look is all it takes, and the women fall over themselves to get to me. Then I saw Josephine, sitting with her dweeb of a date, just waiting for a man who could appreciate her lush curves and sharp brain. When she ghosted on me, I shouldn't have been so shocked, but women never walk away from me. Josephine thought she could call the shots - she didn't realize that a Winters man always gets what he wants. And I wanted her.

The Billionaire's Secret Heart is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It's the first in the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaires series, and introduces the notorious men of the Winters family. You can listen to it on its own, but you'll want to listen to the others once you get a taste of the Winters men.

IT WAS SHORT, SWEET & A BIT YA.. BUT OKAY

At 2 hrs 36 mins this is a short listen and one that doesn't go into great detail as Tech Grad Student Josephine meets one of the younger famous Winters offspring, has a sexy two night stand, suffers rejection and heartbreak over a misunderstanding/outside interference.. and falls in love - all within a week!! Holden Winters is a successful businessman, a rich f... em 'n leave em Playboy and half owner of a trendy Nightclub which is where he rescues a blonde bombshell from a blind date from Hell.. and ends up inviting her into his bed, into his life and into his heart.

In such a very short story you can't expect much depth, much drama and for not a lot of time to have elapsed before the h//h 'got together' - and this listen was pretty much insta everything. Sadly, only two of the eleven chapters were from Holden's POV. I don't usually do such short listens but it was fairly enjoyable and this 1st book of the Scandals Of The Bad Boys Billionaires series gives a good taster into two of the men of Ivy Layne's Winters clan.. and, for $4.86, it delivered all that I was expecting.

Short, insta techie love.

A chance meeting at an exclusive club leading to an explosive one night stand that gets caught up in feels: for each other and a bit of jealousy on the outside.

I enjoyed the heroine and her roomie being super smart women. I love that.

The insta-love was cute and the twist with the phone was predictable, but I liked how other characters were involved. The story just felt rushed.

I’m a fan of CJ Bloom and I’m pretty new to Beckett Greylock. If anything, Beckett wasn’t in this a lot, but the narration very good. Made the book good.

Cute But.......

I enjoyed the short Novella but, I wasn't so keen on the Narrators. CJ needed a bit more emphasis on her words. Holden was a true Alpha man who n-knew what he wanted and went after it. Josephine is a woman in want and is ignorant to the fact of who Holden is. When she found out she still didn't care about his money. She liked him for who he was and not what he was. I enjoyed the story and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

Not bad but...

I am glad that this was not the first in this series that I listened to. The full length novels in the series are far better. As a novella, the author tries to shove a fully fleshed out story into half as many words and it just feels a bit flat and shallow. Unlike the other books, there is no relationship before the sex begins. The story begins with a random hookup. Then, for no explicable reason, they feel a “connection “. It’s just not believable. Considering that there are so many fewer words, I would have preferred if the story was lighter on sex and heavier on plot and characterization. Instead, it is the opposite. Story and characters suffer by being replaced with random, unfeeling gratuitous sex that occurs before and without a relationship or legitimate feeling. It is disappointing because in the other books in this series, intimacy is typically done so well, with a strong basis on feelings and relationship.

The “big conflict” ends up being very contrived and a little weird. The entire thing just feels like it is a rough draft without a fully fleshed out story or plot.

The narration is great.

Overall, if you have audible escape it’s not horrible to listen to. But I wouldn’t waste a credit. It is the weakest of the series. I love most of the others in the series and recommend them over the novellas.
