Summary

Called an eccentric beast by the citizens of Amesport, Maine, handsome billionaire Grady Sinclair stays isolated in his mansion on a private peninsula. The arrangement suits Grady just fine - until an angelic woman rings his doorbell, awaking his long dormant passion with her fearlessness. All he wants is to make the fiery blonde his forever. But will he have to become the monster everyone thinks he is to get his Christmas wish?

Emily Ashworth is desperate. The Youth Center has been robbed of all its money, and as the director, she has to find a way to give the town's needy children the Christmas they deserve. With nowhere else to turn, she ventures to the mansion of a mysterious billionaire to ask for help. Warned to expect a beast, Emily is shocked to find Grady Sinclair a handsome and passionate man. Is this misunderstood billionaire just a lonely soul who needs the gift of love for Christmas?

Disgusting

I had not idea that the story was going to be so graphic and disgusting, the preview gave no hint of the content as I would not have chosen it

Loved it!

Loved this mini story. Emily & Grady - 2 very different people who together make a lovely couple. I liked the fact it was a Christmas romance. The story had a good amount of humour to go with the romance. Look forward to the rest of the Billionaire series

The Billionair's Christmas.

Really do not like this narrator,

I read these books first and really liked them, the narrator who reads all the Sinclair books has ruined them for me. She says everything in a horrible breathy girlie voice even when the person is supposed to be angry. love the story but she has ruined the audio books for me

Romantic, enjoyable and very seasonal

Although a little predictable at times, this is still a very good story within the series and also an excellent Christmas read.
A little rushed in parts - not sure why this was so much shorter than the others in the series. Nevertheless, the story and the story teller keeps you wanting to know more. I think it would have benefitted from a bit more detail in parts.
That said I still thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend and will 'read' again.

Turning of the beast

Grady forever hated Christmas. His father was cruel and no one was sad that he was dead. Now seen as the lonely Beast who no one bothers one woman seeks him out to save Christmas for the whole town. This book is exciting and a love story that changes the Beast into the Prince to love forever.

SHORT..... BUT PACKED FULL OF HAPPINESS

First of all this is actually book 0.5 in the Sinclair Billionaire series and I purchased this Novella because I had already listened to book 1 No Ordinary Billionaire which was about Dante and this Novella is about his brother Grady.

Anywhoo back to the book, this was a short but very enjoyable listen about the hermit Grady Sinclair but he had good reasons to dislike mixing with people, hating parties and had feeling like he was different from the rest of the Sinclairs. He dreamed of fitting in with the rest of his four siblings but he never did because of the actions of his cruel Father..... but, at 18, fate stepped in and helped him out.

Thirteen years later, Emily fell on his doorstep (literally) desperately looking for a donation for the broke Charity Youth Centre where she was a Director and when handsome Grady himself opened the door it was game over for both of them because Grady made her an offer she couldn't refuse. It was a charming, funny, sweet, tender, romantic and heroic story as they clashed, argued, made mad passionate possessive love and shared Christmas together. With a couple of short drama filled near death experiences thrown in too.

Worth a credit? Dual POV's, a great narrator who could do male voices well and it was under $10 (and it was a bargain at only $5.24 while on sale) it was a very worthy buy so saving a credit for a more expensive listen.

A little more story A little less PU***

I like the story and I don't mind sex scenes, but I can't stand the p-word. I think overall I like the writing style, but the use of that word repeatedly is a lack of imagination. The author is a talented writer, but it seems to me she falls back on the same old details in her sex scenes.

ugggg fast forwarded it mostly

ridiculous tripe, I like a good romance but this was too hard to swallow!!! Spóiler: Within a week of knowing each other, he saved her twice from a bullet and drowning, let's her go through his finances ect this was just ignorant. The narrator did a good job and she tried.

Good holiday read!

Alexa Riley was discussing this book on the Read Me Romance podcast and got me intrigued. I had to borrow this on KU immediately.

The hero mistakes the heroine for a hooker and then when he finds out she isn’t, he immediately jumps on an idea that will have him taking over her life.

I love when a Hero sees what he wants and just takes it. It’s really not what you’d expect by this type of hero either. He’s anti-social and practically a hermit, but it’s the unexpectedness of it that makes me like it more.

It is a good Christmas novella and I listened to the audiobook. If I had a negative, I thought there was too much inner monologue that really stands out in an audiobook. Otherwise a cute and quick read/listen.
