Review: The Millionaire Affair by Jessica Lemmon

The Millionaire Affair
(Love in Balance #3)

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 thebedroom. 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?

My Thoughts:  Landon Downey finds himself in need of a babysitter to help with his 6-year old nephew while he's staying with him for a few weeks.  Kimber Reynolds in is desperate need of cash to help her get out of a business deal she made with her ex-boyfriend.  Landon's sister Angel, who also happens to be Kimber's close friend is more than happy to arrange a deal that will benefit both Landon and Kimber.  Landon agrees, because the geeky little girl from 16 years ago won't pose a problem, or so he thinks.  Kimber agrees because she still doesn't have that crush she had on Landon 16 years ago, or does she?  Well........when Landon opens the door to find Kimber, he is awestruck by the beautiful and feisty redhead staring back at him, while Kimber's butterflies that have been dormant for years begin to flutter once again.  Needless to say, the next week proves to be quite interesting all the way around, but when it's all said and done...will Landon AKA "The Tin Man" finally get a heart, and will Dorothy make it back to Kansas with her heart still intact?

 I really liked Kimber's character.  She not only was feisty and stubborn, she was funny and easy to connect with. The chemisty between Kimber and Landon is hot, and there are some steamy scenes that will have you fanning your face.  Landon isn't the typical type of book boyfriend I fall for, but between the steamy scenes and what takes place over the course of the novel, he had totally won me over by the end.  This is my first novel by Jessica Lemmon, and the third in this series, which can easily be read as a standalone companion novel.  The Millionaire Affair is a fun, sexy, romantic novel that is filled with humor, hotness, and drama.  If you are looking for an enjoyable novel that will make you smile, then you've found it.  Check it out.  
About 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 inthe 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.)
