Billionaire media magnate Andros Casstellini thinks women are there for one thing, and one thing only. Lyra ‘the man eater’ Matthews tends to think the same about men. But Andros has something she needs, namely cash—and lots of it. So on this occasion Lyra has no choice but to hang around for a while, and one quick tumble isn’t going to cut it, Lyra has to make him burn…

Andros’ desire for Lyra is immediate. The more time he spends with her the more he wants her. But nothing he does will bring her to heel…until Lyra spells it out pure and simple. A mistress she will be, and it is going to cost him.

Before long, Andros and Lyra are wrapped up in one another, in a relationship that neither could have expected. But, she is brimming with secrets, he won’t allow anyone too close, and heartache is just around the corner… In the end it might just cost them both more than they could ever have imagined.

Lyra ‘the man eater’ Matthews changes up the game and goes for what she wants in the conclusion of this fun trilogy. I enjoyed the way that the author had all three books start with the same opening scene so they’re all easily read separate of each other. The author did a good job of giving them their own level of uniqueness while still having the feel of a very spicy category romance.

Andros Casstellini was an interesting billionaire; he came from humble beginnings and I liked that about him. I liked that he wasn’t born to money but instead earned his way to the top. Lyra is out to get cash, but she’s not the normal money hungry woman in Andros’ world, she’s out to get the money for very noble reasons.

Their relationship explodes from the start and the rules they place on themselves hinted from the very beginning that it wouldn’t be an easy ride. I felt for them when they were working out what their relationship really was and how to react to each other. Their struggles really brought the whole situation a sense of reality that the whole Billionaire trope usually lacks.

I really enjoyed this story, and I really loved this series. It’s a great series for fans of category romance with the spice level stepped up.
