Billionaire Brothers Club , Book 3
Harlequin Desire #2508
Contemporary Series Romance
Los Angeles, California – Present Day
Billionaire tech mogul Max Marquez and socialite Lizzie McQueen have been best friends since they were young, bonding over the loss of their mothers. Max feels close enough to Lizzie to talk about an orphan on the South Pacific island of Nulah, a child he wants to help in many ways. He even invites Lizzie to accompany him on a trip to meet the child, Tokoni, where she will do an interview with the director of the orphanage. Once there, both bond with Tokoni, and wish they could adopt him, but before his mother died, she stipulated that her son only be placed with a married couple. Once back in LA, Max and Lizzie discuss the situation, and he comes up with a bizarre idea that they marry, adopt the boy, and then divorce afterwards. Remaining friends, of course.
Lizzie agrees, but wonders how she'll be able to hide her attraction to Max. She has not attempted to act upon her feelings as she respects their friendship. While they go through the motions of wedding planning and pretending to everyone they're in love (in case the orphanage director would find out and nix the adoption), Max and Lizzie fight against the growing attraction for each other that's hard to resist. But once they're married, all resistance is gone, and the passion is fabulous. Can they build on this passion to forge a happily-ever-after?
The final book in the Billionaire Brothers series by Sheri Whitefeather, PAPER WEDDING, BEST-FRIEND BRIDE brings together best friends Max and Lizzie. But once marriage is brought into the equation after they form a plan to adopt Tokoni, there is a sudden sexual awareness between them they didn't have before. Their friends, however, are letting them know that it's “about time” they give into their attraction for each other. What a shocker to learn that their friends thought they were holding back from changing the friendship to love!
Max never knew his father and was placed into foster care after his mother died. It was there that he met his best friends, Jake and Garrett, where they planned to change the course of their future by becoming rich and powerful. They've all succeeded, but something was missing…love. First Jake found love (WAKING UP WITH THE BOSS) and then Garrett (SINGLE MOM, BILLIONAIRE BOSS), and now it's Max's turn…with Lizzie. She lost her mother when she was young and her relationship with her dad is shaky, but through it all, Max has stood by her. As their awareness of each other grows, so does love, but also insecurity. It's just finally getting them to admit that trusting each other will make love easier.
