Let me start by admitting this is my first book by Jackie Ashenden's novels, and I will forever be a fan. The Dangerous Billionaire left no emotion untapped and no stone unturned. I give it a five-star rating. I found this story to be emotion-packed, suspenseful, and addictive read. I loved the steam that Ashenden has in her story.
The Dangerous Billionaire is the first of three novels featuring the Tate Brothers. The brothers are Sullivan (Van), Lucas and Wolf--the adopted foster children of billionaire oil magnate Noah Tate, who also had a daughter, Chloe, and this novel is Van and Chloe's story. I am sure you are thinking "Didn't you just say, foster children?" I did, and now you will have to read to enjoy it as I did.
The three boys joined the Navy and became SEALs. Chloe grew up mostly alone on her father's Wyoming ranch. Chloe was closest to Van, who was ten years older than her. Van taught her to ride, and she both idolized as a child and crushed on as a teenager. Although he used to come home regularly on leave. Van has been gone without so much as a word for eight years. That all changes when Noah Tate dies, leaving letters for each of the boys and none for Chloe. Noah repeatedly told that the ranch was Chole's and, as we learn, that was not the only lie he told.
