Like many romance readers, Harlequin books were some of my very first romances. It’s been awhile since I picked up one, so I was excited to read The Billionaire’s Legacy by Reese Ryan from the Harlequin Desire line. Look at that cover! How can your ovaries resist a handsome man holding a beautiful baby?
As you’ve guessed by now, The Billionaire’s Legacy combines two common tropes: secret baby and a super rich dude. Technically Sloane is pregnant with twins (!!!). Lucky for us, Benji is not your typical alphahole billionaire. He’s very sweet and sensitive–even if he doesn’t always communicate well with Sloane.
Let’s backtrack a little. Benji has crushed on his big sister’s best friend Sloane since he was ten-years-old. Sloane, who’s five years older than him, only saw him as a little kid. Until years later, when she runs into him at a mutual friend’s wedding in their small hometown. Benji has grown up! Cue no strings attached, super steamy weekend.
Benji can’t stop thinking about Sloane. When he tracks her down six months later, he finds a very pregnant Sloane. She refuses his marriage proposal, but agrees to let him be part of the twins’ lives. Meanwhile, his family claims she’s a gold digger. Can Sloane and Benji trust each enough so he can put a ring on it?
There’s plenty of steamy bits in The Billionaire’s Legacy, but I wanted to share how it all began. In this scene, Sloane and Benji sneak away from their friend’s wedding for a weekend long romp in the sheets:
Benji stepped closer, his gaze locked with Sloane’s. She inhaled audibly, her body tensing as he leaned down and cradled her face. The sound of Sloane breathing and the frantic beat of his heart filled his ears.
Sloane didn’t object to the intimate gesture. Her pupils dilated, and her chest rose and fell heavily. He moved in closer, and she leaned in, too. She pressed a hand to his chest and her eyes drifted shut.
He kissed her, easing into it at first, reveling in the softness of her lips and the way her body nestled against his. Her lips parted on a sigh, granting his tongue access. Her mouth tasted rich and sweet. Like premium bourbon and pecan pie.
As the urgency of his kiss escalated, Sloane’s response matched his intensity.
Eager. Hungry. Demanding.
His heart thundered in his chest, his need for her building. He hauled her closer and groaned with pleasure at the sensation of his length pinned between them.
Sloane slipped her arms around him and tugged his shirt free from the back of his pants. Her fingernails scraped gently against his skin.
Benji groaned, hardening painfully as the sensation—part pain, part pleasure—heightened the euphoric feeling that vibrated beneath his skin. Made him desperate to finally have her. He lifted her onto the table, nestling in the space between her thighs.
You’ll have to read the rest of The Billionaire’s Legacy to find out how many orgasms Sloane achieves over their weekend fling.
To quote Beyonce: If you love it, put a ring on it. Which is what Benji desperately wants.
There’s no sex toys in The Billionaire’s Legacy, but I can see Benji picking out the best of the best. The Fifty Shades Freed Metal Ring is beautifully designed and engraved with “I want you. Now.”
The luxury steel c-ring is smooth and weighted to offer optimal pleasure for its wearer. C-rings enhance his erection, making him harder and helps him last longer. Or try slipping this ring around the testicles for gentle tug. No matter how he wears it, the metal c-ring intensifies sensation for better orgasms.
