Series: Billionaires And Babies #40
Pages: 192
View/Purchase: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N

All business, all the time, is billionaire Leo Cavallo's motto. So two months of forced relaxation is certainly not the CEO's idea of a Christmas bonus. Then he meets his neighbor, the irresistible Phoebe Kemper, and a storm forces them to become roommates. Suddenly, the holidays are looking a whole lot brighter. 

But beautiful Phoebe isn't living alone. She's babysitting her infant nephew. Somehow, playing temporary family is surprisingly appealing. But what will Leo choose when it's time to go home?

My Review:

I really enjoyed reading A Billionaire for Christmas, it was compelling and the relationship between Phoebe and Leo made the whole book interesting to read. When it comes to putting things before others, Leo Cavallo does exactly that. He puts business before himself and it's because of that, that his brother and sister-in-law sent him away to get him away from his multi-billion dollar business. But he wasn't expecting to find himself in the middle of a storm without any place to stay. Now he suddenly finds himself staying with his neighbor, Phoebe and her baby nephew. After suffering from a heart attack before he was sent away, he started to question the things that he has and wants. But seeing Phoebe now with her nephew brings a whole new set of feelings that he can't explain, all he knows is that he is attracted to her. 

All Phoebe wanted was a quiet time with her nephew, but instead she got a storm and a handsome guest staying in her cabin. Struggling to keep her past in the past, Phoebe is committed to give her nephew a great Christmas day with the help of Leo. His stay has brought her back memories of her past, but as the two start getting to know each other, she discovers that Leo has secrets and that she is madly attracted to him. Now the two will have to help each other overcome their past experiences if they want to keep moving forward. 

There were a lot of things that I liked about this book, for starters, Leo and Phoebe are the only characters in the whole book. There really wasn't much interaction with other characters, it was great to see them grow and start to overcome their pasts. Yet would have been nice to hear from other characters, not just them. The overall story was really well thought out and the writing flow beautifully. I liked their moments with Phoebe's nephew. It brought more to the story that made it enjoyable to read. Overall I would recommend everyone to give this book a try, it's fairly short and the romance between the characters is great.
