Book Review: Anyone but the Billionaire

By Sara Steven

Self-made mogul Chase Moore is a charming hound dog with a hairless cat and a family business to save.

He was fine being the spare to the heir until the family's billion-dollar business threatens to go belly-up.

Now Chase will need more than his rakish good looks to fight his father for control.

Powerhouse marketing guru Campbell King returns to Texas and launches her own company after being chewed up and spat out by the city that never sleeps,

One phone call makes all the difference when a suave and sexy male voice offers her the chance to redeem herself and help him save his swanky Manhattan store.

When the sexy redhead finally runs into her new billionaire boss, they’re both in for a shock.

But there’s no way Campbell is dating the boss. In fact, anyone but the billionaire would be better… (Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads.)

I love the snark factor within Anyone but the Billionaire. The dialogue between Chase and Campbell was incredibly fun and witty, and so, so snarky! Even the inner dialogue provided by both characters kept me on the hook, because it was fun to read and interesting. Nothing staunch. In fact, many of the scenes where Chase is pining for Campbell, or Campbell is thinking of Chase, showcased red-hot images of what they either wanted to do with one another, or how they needed to stop thinking about the things they want to do with one another. It kept the reading experience exciting!

Campbell is like the epitome of the kind of woman I’d love to be someday. She tried to play the game society’s way for far too long, deciding it was time to come into her own and do things her own way, which has paid off tremendously. It’s a trait that Chase finds incredibly attractive, often highlighting on how undeniably sexy it is to witness Campbell in her element, particularly when it comes to dealing with his unruly father. Other people would run and hide in sheer terror, but not Campbell. She takes it all in stride. 

There is an obvious attraction between the characters, and Campbell doesn’t want to make the mistake of falling for the man she’s working for. Even though I could see the hurdles they’d have to face a mile away, so there weren’t many surprises, I still appreciated the storyline and how the two of them deal with trying to navigate the sticky situation they’re in. Chase is trying to save his family’s legacy, and by hiring Campbell, there is the potential for that. But at what cost to his own happiness? There are a lot of crazy dynamics they have to figure out. 

And then there’s the hairless cat. I won’t even go into detail about that–other than to say, you need to read Anyone but the Billionaire and learn more about the cat. There are a ton of punchline jokes involved, and all of them are funny. Really, the whole book is funny, charming, and full of that snarky dialogue that I find engaging. It was worth the read!
