Billionaire Undaunted

J.S. Scott is one of my favorite authors and this book is another example of why. When series go longer than about 5 books, I tend to worry about getting a story repeated with different names. Well, that is definitely NOT the case with this series. J.S. Scott has a ton of new plot ideas, but still brings back favorite characters from previous books. Ellie and Zane's story starts part way into the last book, but a reader does not have to read Chloe's story in order to enjoy this book. What I loved about this book was how natural the encounter was between Ellie and Zane. Things weren't perfect after Ellie was rescued and it took her time to heal. I feel this story happened in a realistic enough time frame and found myself drawn into the story from the beginning. I read this book in one sitting and couldn't put it down. I definitely give it a solid 5 star review and can't wait for more from J.S. Scott and the Billionaire's Obsession series.
The Billionaire's Obsession: Book 9

My name is Ellie Winters, and I’m one of those unfortunate women you hear about on the news—but you never think my fate will ever happen to you. Not that I blame you for believing that. Honestly, I thought the same thing, until I became a statistic, a missing person who was assumed dead. Wrong place, wrong time.

Except…I’m not dead. Not yet. I was kidnapped, shackled, beaten, and deprived of the basic necessities, and pretty much left to find a slow, painful demise. I’m hanging on, but just barely. I’m not even sure what I’m waiting for since there’s no hope for me, nobody waiting for me. I had finally given up, resigned myself to my inevitable death…when the one man who could make me want to live again finds me more dead than alive. After so many months in captivity, I’m lost, hopelessly damaged. Is it even possible for me to come out of the darkness and into the light again?

Zane Colter challenges me to live again, laugh again, live my life again. But I’m not sure if I’ll ever be the same woman I was before I was held captive by a madman. Yet, he doesn’t give up, and I couldn’t ignore the white-hot passion that sizzled between the two of us.

He’s everything I’ve ever wanted, everything I’ve always needed.
Tender--but stubborn.
Logical--but understanding.
Sweet--but hot, demanding and possessive.

As we fall into each other, both hungry for a passion we’ve never known, I wonder if I can be what Zane needs when I’m struggling to find myself again.

And when I’m finally healed, I’ll have a choice to make: Do I try to hang onto him forever, or will letting go be my only option?
