I received an ARC of Waking up with a Billionaire by Katie Lane from Netgalley and the Publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. This is the second book that I have read of Katie's and the first that I have read in this series. I think that Katie did a great job developing the characters and giving you enough of their back story to understand why they acted the way that they did. She also did a great job of setting the scenes in the book. Between the French Kiss Headquarters, his house and the surprise that the author throws in the book, she really makes you feel like you are in each of the locations.
Another aspect that I enjoyed with this book is that along with the romance part of the story she also included drama, pain and loss. I really think having all these different aspects the story really made it strong and held me as the reader all the way to the end.
Lastly, the final thing that I think Katie did very well in this book is how she intertwined the previous two books into this series into this one. She not only incorporated their stories a little but also gave you a peak into what was going on in their life after the happily ever after moment. It allowed me as a reader to understand some background with out having to read the other two books right away. I do definitely want to read the first two books though as I am interested to learn more about the characters and what brought them together.
I am very interested to see where she takes this series to in the future or if this is the last book. I guess I will have to wait and see.
