The Taming of the Billionaire by Jessica Clare - Fresh Fiction review

The New York Times bestselling author of The Billionaire and the Virgin returns with a tale of Shakespearean-style seduction…

Edie’s an overbearing cat behaviorist who’s not big on people. Magnus is a newly-rich game developer who likes to be in control. When the two of them meet at Gretchen and Hunter’s masquerade engagement party, the loathing is mutual. Unfortunately for them—and everyone else—they’re in the wedding party together and must deal with each other for the next few months.<br />

But when Magnus’s younger brother falls for Edie’s sister, he begs for his brother’s help in concocting a plan to win her over. If Magnus can keep the prickly Edie occupied, his brother will have time to woo Edie’s sister. Of course, Magnus isn’t interested in the slightest, but Edie is…intriguing. And stubborn. And smart. And sexy. And they might have more in common than they thought.

Before long, it becomes a challenge between the two of them to see who will be tamed first. But how’s Edie going to react when she finds out that Magnus is using her? And how’s Magnus going to handle the fact that he’s fallen for a cat lady?

Excerpt from my review originally posted on the website Fresh Fiction:

"Although Edie may appear shrewish to some people, she has a big heart where cats are concerned and she is always thinking of her flakey sister. Likewise, Magnus turns out to be more than what he first appears to be. I love how they get to know and like each other and appreciate their strengths. I like how they have more in common they think - including a tendency to be overindulgent when it comes to their siblings. Magnus becomes more likable over the course of the book as his feelings for Edie grow. "
