Forever Romance Review + Giveaway: The Millionaire Affair by Jessica Lemmon

Millionaire ad executive Landon Downey has a policy: no romantic relationships allowed. So when he's saddled with his six-year-old nephew for a week, he doesn't think twice about asking a female friend to act as live-in nanny. What he doesn't expect is the palpable attraction to the woman he hasn't seen in sixteen years. And not only does she like him back, she suggests they work their way down a list of extracurricular activities in the bedroom. How can he resist? 

Kimber Reynolds knows what she's doing. Sort of. Tired of every failed attempt to turn her past relationships into her own happily-ever-afters, she's determined to prove once and for all that she can love em and leave  em with the best of them. All she has to do is keep her heart out of the agreement she's made with the man she's crushed on for a decade and a half. No problem. Their string-free arrangement turns downright stringy when Landon starts to feel more for the redhead than good old fashioned lust, and Kimber has a scare involving a plastic stick and one-or-more blue lines. With the pressure mounting and their hearts involved, will these two be able to keep their original promise and walk away from one another?

My Thoughts:

I have read the previous books, and I can honestly say that I don't remember Landon. If he was in the previous stories, he was a minor character. So, I was shocked to read that Angel, Aiden, and Evan had an older brother who's a millionaire. Anyway, now that I'm over my shock I guess I should tell you what I thought of the story.

I think this might be my favorite story, and I did love Shane's story. What I loved about this story is you have Landon who is emotionally closed off and he ends up with an emotionally open person. Kimber is very emotionally open. I love this line from her:
Her secret superpower was the ability to morph a perfectly okay  short-term relationship into a doomed one that zombie-dragged it's decaying self to inevitable demise.
So, yeah she could be a little clingy, but she wanted to work on that and who would be the perfect person other than emotionally shutoff Landon. Honestly, like how you have two people fall for one another who are polar opposites. You have Landon who is the planner, and will dot every "I" and cross every "T". While Kimber goes with the flow and take things as they come.

The Millionaire Affair had me feeling an array of emotion. It wasn't Kimber's doing, but Landon. It was like he had an emotional awaking. He was a hollow shell of himself before Kimber helped him open up. Kimber even went through some growth in the book, because she had to learn to trust herself. Overall, a great book. I laugh and cried. I didn't expect to shed a tear, but Jessica got a few tears out of me. So, if you are looking for something to read, you might give The Millionaire Affair a try. Another bonus, the story can be read as a standalone.

About Jessica Lemmon:

Jessica Lemmon has always been a dreamer. At some point, she decided head-in-the-clouds thinking was childish, went out, and got herself a job . . . and then she got another one because that one was lousy. And when that one stopped being fulfilling, she went out and got another . . . and another. Soon it became apparent she'd only be truly happy doing what she loved. And since "eating potato chips" isn't a viable career, she opted to become a writer. With fire in her heart, she dusted off a book she'd started years prior, finished it, and submitted it. It may have been the worst book ever, but it didn't stop her from writing another one. Now she has several books finished, several more started, and even more marinating in her brain (which currently resides in the clouds, thankyouverymuch), and she couldn't be happier. She firmly believes God gifts us with talents for a purpose, and with His help, you can create the life you want. (While eating potato chips.)
