Cover Reveal & Review : The Billionaire & The Barfly

The Billionaire & The Barfly by Adrianne James

Henry Maximus is a super-hero-loving geek and proud of it. He’s also a genius when it comes to business. It’s how he earned the title of CEO of Maximus Gaming … not to mention the billions of dollars in his bank account. Henry’s tried living the life of a bachelor, but a different girl every night has left him wanting more. Needing more.
Aubrey Vincent is in love with her job. She’ll love it even more if she lands the promotion that gets her out of her parent’s attic. She loves it so much that she has no time for relationships, not that she was ever very good at them to begin with. Aubrey is perfectly happy with the random, nameless men she picks up at the bar.
After a brief encounter with Aubrey on a business trip, Henry packs his bags and moves back to the small town where he grew up. Aubrey’s town. Aubrey attempts to find her way into Henry’s bed, while he tries everything to get into her heart. Will Henry’s plan to break down the walls Aubrey has built around her heart work or will his unbelievable million dollar offer scare her away?


My Thoughts:


Aubrey works at a marketing company as a PA. She doesn't have time for love and the frequent visits to the bars to pick up guys seem to satisfy her. That was until the hansom Henry starts to get under her skin. As things start to look up for Aubrey at her job with a possible promotion things start to slowly fall apart. Clients are being taken by the rival company. Aubrey must do everything she can to come up a fresh new idea that could help the company. 

I found myself enjoying this book more then I thought I would. I loved that Aubrey didn't have everything together, she didn't have some tragic messed up past. I liked how real her character felt. I loved that she was very caring and I loved her relationship with her brother. I liked that she did what she could to help him and his girlfriend out. I thought Henry character was interesting, I wished there was more then one point of view where I got to see his side of things though. I loved the connection between Aubrey and Henry. I thought that this book was well written and really interesting.

Growing up, Adrianne couldn’t get her hands on enough books to satisfy her need for the make believe. If she finished a novel and didn’t have a new one ready and waiting for her, she began to create her own tales of magic and wonder. Now, as an adult, books still make up majority of her free time, and now her tales get written down to be shared with the world.
During the day, Adrianne uses her camera to capture life’s stories for clients of all ages and at night, after her two children are tucked in bed; she devotes herself to her written work. Adrianne is living the life she always wanted, surrounded by art and beauty, the written word and a loving family.
As a young adult and new adult author, Adrianne James has plans to bring stories of growing characters, a little romance, and perhaps a little magic and mythology down the line for her readers to enjoy.
