Dangerous Billionaire (Rich & Shameless, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dangerous Billionaire by Luma Rose

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

I’ve finally escaped from under my father’s political shadow—I’m no longer the political prince—I’m mayor now. It might not be a Senator but it’s the first step of my well-orchestrated plan to one day dethrone my father.

.

True to form, my dad comes demanding his due. Asking something from me I can’t give him unless I want to hand him more leverage to use against me.

.

Still, the pieces are coming together until Naomi Beneton shows up in my office. At first, she’s my savior—the best assistant a guy could ask for. But then I start to appreciate her quick wit and clingy dresses more than her administrative skills and things become complicated.

.

I realize too late that Naomi isn’t who she says she is. She holds the power to destroy everything, including the wall I’ve built around my heart. It would be easy to give into my desire for her, but she has no idea how much of a danger I am to her.

Dangerous Billionaire

The billionaire is not really that dangerous!




The billionaire is certainly hot and he does have some anger issues, but he didn’t seem that dangerous to me. This book is about Ford Masterson, one of the “Classholes” from the previous book, Cruel Billionaire. They have known each other since they were kids and their father’s are ultra rich entitled jerks who treated them like crap their entire lives and are still trying to run their lives despite the fact that the guys are grown men and have their own money.

Ford does have some latent anger issues that come out especially when his father comes around or when his mother shows up to lunch with bruises on her arms. His father is a U.S. Senator that the has the constituents fooled into thinking he is a nice guy. Like Garrin’s father in Cruel Billionaire, Ford’s father tries to blackmail him into doing what he wants because of something that happened when the guys were all in high school and a girl ended up dead.

Ford recently won the race for Mayor and his former assistant is retiring so he needs a new assistant. He hires Naomi Bennett who is an FBI agent posing as an assistant in order to take down Ford’s Father. The FBI knows Senator Masterson is corrupt but has never been able to prove it. Naomi has a personal stake in the case since she believes the senator had a hand in her father’s death which was ruled a suicide.

Not long after starting the job, Naomi sees that Ford has some anger issues. What she doesn’t know is that Ford goes to underground cage fights every Friday night to deal with the anger inside him, by hitting someone. He is the reigning champ of the fight club. As Ford and Naomi work together they get closer pretty fast. The romance is not as hot as I would have liked. There are a few steamy scenes, but this book focuses more on the story than the romance. I would say the heat index of the romance is 2.5-3 out of 5 flames 🔥🔥🔥.

I enjoyed the story quite a bit, though the book wasn’t that long so it went really fast. I liked the fact that Naomi was an FBI agent and she was a strong woman. It seems like the next book might bring us closer to finding out what happened when they were younger. I want to know how that girl died and who did it, but so do the Classholes apparently.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.

  1. Nice review… I wanted to know if the main issue of dead girl case is solved or not… Your review made it clear it’s not… Now I m skeptical if I have to pick this now or wait for other books to release… 🤔

    h being FBI is making me curious to not wait… I thought she is just assistant after reading blurb… 🤔💭

    • We find out a little more about what happened that night when the girl died, but we don’t find out everything, including who killed her. Ford was her Prom Date but he didn’t kill her.

      The fathers are holding that night over their heads and that is how they still are able to keep the guys under their thumbs. Otherwise the guys wouldn’t keep doing things their fathers ask them to do.

      I think that none of the guys killed her (unless it was the one that committed suicide. However, they all made a pact never to talk about it, so each of them thinks that they are protecting the others when they get blackmailed by their fathers. And I think if they all get together and talk about what happened that night, they might figure out that it really wasn’t any of them and their fathers don’t really hold the cards.

      I think that might happen in the next book. Even so, I am afraid the case of the dead girl will be a running theme throughout the entire series because they probably won’t be able to get out from under the father’s thumbs until nearly the end of the series and then they can get their revenge.
