Blog Tour and Review: 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?

I first read Hard to Handle by Jessica Lemmon a couple of months ago. I really fell in love with Aiden and Sadie and when I got the blog tour invite for The Millionaire Affair, I knew I had to sign up. 

The story begins with Landon in his college days and a huge pregnancy dilemma with his college girlfriend. I was drawn into the story by the prologue itself. 

Landon is now a very successful ad executive in his 30's and is having to babysit his nephew, Lyon for his brother. The fact is that Landon is so intent on work he needs help with Lyon. Enter Kimber.

Kimber is a fiercely independent owner of a vintage clothing store, but also the best friend of Angel, Landon's sister. Oh and the best part? She is a dreamer that acts before she thinks most of the time and is lots of fun! Did I mention she has been I love with Landon since she was 16!?! 

When Angel calls her begging for her to be a live in nanny to Lyon for a week, she gives in because she really needs the money. What will happen when she is under the same roof with Landon for an extended period of time? Can she put her feelings aside? Or will she crack the tin man and bring him to his knees? 

I really enjoyed this story. While there is not a ton of drama and it's an easy read, I enjoy that. It's nice to pick up a books with limited angst and know that its going to be a read that will leave you with lots of warm fuzzies inside. I really enjoy not having to work so hard for happiness all the time! I especially love Landon's character and his feelings he struggles to accept. He really is a fun guy! And Kimber is super sweet and endearing as well. Their chemistry is so amazing to watch unfold. If you're looking for a feel good love story, one click The Millionaire Affair today!

About Author 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.)
