Multi-billionaire Luke "The Bullet" Garmont is devastatingly handsome, lonely, horny, and sick of gold-diggers. He lost his heart when the love of his life died - not his libido. When he can take it no more, he comes up with a brilliant plan to use his wealth to buy happiness - 10 gorgeous women worth of happiness, all at once, on a private island and all his! Luke purchases a Caribbean island paradise and builds 10 mansions filled with all the things a woman could want; and then one giant mansion for himself. He then hires 10 of the best matchmakers in the world. He promises them millions if they can help him find the perfect playmate - not a wife.
He's positive that the best way to find the right woman for him is to get to know the women when they think they have no competition. After setting up his private island to perfection, he anticipates their arrival with glee. Ten powerful and beautiful women arrive to his island paradise with matchmakers in tow, thrilled to be the only one dating the billionaire, hoping for love, and unaware there are other candidates for Luke's affections.
What could possibly go wrong?
Note: This is an erotic romance book. It contains graphic language, strong emotion, and passionate love scenes.

The way the author manages to slowly build the tension and chemistry between Luke and some of the women is masterful. You’re left eager to find out what is going to happen next!
One of the best things about the book is the way we meet several characters but they’re all distinguishable and have their own personality. Luke and Svetlana in particular are great together.
A really fun and thrilling listen. It will be exciting to see where Ms. Bancroft goes next in the series.
This novel is a perfect story, not just for the romance but also for the exciting and interesting story. The writing is captivating and the luxury setting really allows you escape and really submerge yourself in the story.
The balance between sexy romance and actual story line is perfect and the premise of the book makes it an interesting read. The narrator is perfect and really adds to the experience. I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend!

"Sexy Romance with a twist"
This romance is everything! I absolutely loved it and ended up finishing the entire thing in one sitting. Its that good!! Without giving too much a way, a sexy millionaire looking for some fun decides to purchase his own island where he builds 10 mansions and invites 10 beautiful and successful women for some fun and adventure. They all think their in for the romance of a lifetime...and they are....they just have a little competition. Lets just say things get a little crazy ;-) I think its her best book yet.
This audio was very exciting and a lot of fun! I can't wait to get the next one! It has great narration, a compelling plot and powerful characters! I really love the idea of designing your own private island romance paradise. A must listen to!
The Billionaire's Private Island follows Luke Garmount, handsome billionaire, who creates an idea to "hire" a companion with the help of his assistant Petra. He invites 10 women from around the world to his island with 10 private matchmakers but the only catch is that none of them know about each other! All is fun and games for Luke until one curious girl unravels his secret and forces him to face his mistakes.
"Billionaire playing The Bachelor on His Own Terms"
The story is interesting and captivating although you end up not liking the billionaire much because of his tactics on finding a suitable piece of arm candy. I really can't even say I didn't like him, because even though he is doing something most women would object to, he is likable. I liked reading the descriptions of the women he invited to the island along with their matchmakers, who do not know about each other.
The author Alessandra Bancroft has written a few other Billionaire Romances, including the Billionaire's Secret Desire. I can compare that book with this one, although it is a totally different story. I enjoy Ms. Bancroft's style of writing. It isn't too elementary nor to over the head. Her characters are all very real and likable and she inserts humor into her writing with both these books. She can also write a steamy sex scene well.
She is a very good narrator and brings the characters to life with her voice inflections and different voices. I enjoy her narration and I think you get more of the book with her reading it than you would by reading it yourself. You tend to gloss over parts to get to better parts and you can't do that when someone else is reading the book.
I enjoyed when the women found out about his plan. I don't know if I would like being invited to an island to be courted and find out there are 9 other women there doing the same thing.
The book is very easy to listen to and keeps your interest. Hearing about the personalities of each of the 10 women is very interesting. It seems they keep foiling his intentions just because they are all pretty smart and if you are a woman and listening, you will definitely be on their side. I will probably read the other books just to see what happens out of curiosity and because I do appreciate the story.
"Very entertaining story with a shocking ending!"
Yes, this book was very entertaining to listen to. It captures your attention so magnetically that you crave more and more as the pages unfold!
Fifty shades of grey. This book reminds me of an extreme edition of fifty shades of grey.
I don't believe so, however the narrators voice is very captivating.
I didn't want to but the story was so good that I did.
This book has lots of interesting characters and plot twists that will have you laughing while at the same time on the edge of your seat for what happens next! Highly recommended!
"Billionaire Romance Done Right"
As always, Bancroft shows that billionaire romance is to be found anywhere. Even in the life of Luke Garmount, he finds a way to use his wealth to attract the women of his dreams--or so he thinks. Bancroft allows the reader to get inside the mind of Garmount and join him on his bizarre, erotic journey to find his ideal companion. It's a very unique take on erotic romance.
"Intriguing and Sexy"
I loved how the characters came to life for me. I felt my emotions change for each character, especially the main character, Luke, as the story progressed. These dynamic characters gave the book dimension and shape, sucking me into the world of the billionaire's private island.
That cliffhanger ending! I can't wait to find out what will happen next! It was such an exciting way to end the first book, and it really felt like a good place to rest and get ready for more action between Luke and the ladies.
I listened to this book as I did housework over the weekend. I ended up listening to the whole book in one sitting. It was the perfect company while dusting and doing dishes, and it made my menial tasks a little more interesting. All of the characters were interesting and intelligent. They seemed like real people, which helped get me sucked into the world Alessandra Bancroft created. I got so swept up in the story, I didn’t want it to end. The ending cliffhanger has me reeling to read more. I can’t wait to find out what happens on the island!
"Billionare's Gold Digger's Ordeal,Wow!"
Billionaire's private Island is another book by my favorite romance author Alessandra. She sure never disappoints. The multi billionaire Luke was my favorite character. His attitude just got me engaged. He always knew exactly what he was doing; inviting ten gorgeous women to his island? He had just lost his loved one and was left devastated. Caitlin has done a superb job at narrating the story. She's fluent and clear making you want to listen more. You don't want to miss Luke's experience with the women. Grab your copy now and enjoy the wave of exotic romance.
"Not your typical romance novel"
I very much enjoyed this romance audio book because it's not your typical story! The characters are actually being developed and it's not 100% predictable. Ready for the next one! I would definitely recommend this book!
"This book is more like a short story"
Story okay, kind of rushed because it is less than 2 hours. I did not look carefully at the description. Not worth a whole credit on my Audible membership.
I don't intend to pursue this line of books.
