When Chicago real estate tycoon Harvey Zale pings a “friend of a friend” with a flirtatious text, he never expects to start an addictive sexting affair with a complete stranger. He’s a billionaire who can get any woman he wants, but he can’t have her—his mysterious, sultry Contessa, who inspires his nightly confessions and soothes more than just his conscience from the consequences of his own shallow ambitions.
He’s determined to build the tallest towers in the world and he needs to sell his Chicago riverfront property to finance it. But when Alma Castillo, the Lara Croft of antique hunters, shows up on his land, claiming the existence of a priceless Tiffany stained glass window and doing everything in her power to muck up his deal, he knows he’s got more than a stray cat to collar and tame. She’s not only on a mission to save long-lost antiques; she’s also on a personal crusade to hate his guts.
He would know. She served him divorce papers a year ago, just to prove it.
And he’d care a helluva lot more if his ex-wife’s sassy tongue and wicked intelligence didn’t turn him on every time she called him “a**hole” and if she didn’t look so damn cute in those baggy overalls, disguising her affinity for being naughty as much as being nice.
Perhaps even as naughty as his Contessa, who unlike Alma, doesn’t know anything about his real identity or flawed, billionaire reputation, which flames his desires to escalate their fantasy relationship into the reality of one scorching night of mindblowing…
If he could only get his mind off his ex-wife—the only woman he’s ever truly loved. God, woman…if she would just let him pleasure her scornful frown and turn it oh, oh, oooohhhh so upside down, maybe he could convince her to marry him again.
But no one ever said it was easy being a greedy opportunistic billionaire bastard, especially one who happens to know there’s nothing better than makeup sex with an ex…
Please note that all of Ms. Hawthorne’s billionaire romances are stand-alone novels set in Chicago with minor subplots and secondary characters that intersect, but each book can be read and enjoyed in any order.
Contemporary Billionaire Romance – Full-length, stand-alone novel with HEA – Suitable for mature readers; 18+ years.
Exes by Aria Hawthorne is a fun and drama filled second romance set in Chicago. Alma and Harvey where married for almost five years before they divorced. Harvey is a billionaire architect in the process of demolishing an old train depot. He is unfortunately stopped by the expert in antique glass… which happens to be Alma, his ex-wife. She claims the 12 stained glass windows within the train depot are priceless. Unfortunately, if Harvey stops the demolition, it can result in the loss of a multi-million-dollar deal.
There was so many twists and turns within the story line that I was engrossed from the very beginning! The relationship between Alma and Harvey was often humorous with them slinging names at each other.
A fun read!
