Review: The Billionaire's Paradigm: His Absolute Purpose by Cerys du Lys

The Billionaire's Paradigm: His Absolute Purpose
by Cerys du Lys
Released Date: Published January 3rd 2014
Pages: 640
View/Purchase: Goodreads, Amazon, B&N

When Elise Tanner finds herself trapped in a library with Lucent Storme during a record-breaking blizzard, she panics. He might not know her, but she knows more than enough about him. Besides being the newly appointed Director of Public Relations for Landseer Enterprises and an influential business magnate, there are rumors that he has a taste for the darker side of sexuality. 

He seems fake, false, excessively demanding, too self-important by far, and... with over six feet of snow expected and the streets completely unmanageable, there's absolutely no way for her to escape him. 

He's so predatory and dominant, yet beneath his rakish and enigmatic exterior, she senses there's more to this mysterious and isolated man. He's charming and intelligent (though reserved and terse), begrudgingly handsome, and surprisingly thoughtful. Unintentionally, Elise finds herself drawn to Lucent in a way that defies logic. 

Unfortunately the snow may be the least of her worries. One disaster begets another and not everything is as it seems with the man who holds a sole singular obsession above all others. Will Elise's curiosity be her undoing? Is she unwittingly playing right into Lucent's hand; his dark desires and commanding personality? Or can she discover His Absolute Purpose, the reason he hides himself behind a facade of formality, and gain a deeper, more emotional and intimate connection with the compelling Director of Public Relations? 

The snow may have brought them together, but it can't keep them together forever. What happens when the ice begins to melt? 

Powerful, sensual, and commanding. This poignant story of love, attraction, and temptation will bind you, entwine you, and thrill you until the very end.

My Review:

Cerys du Lys did a good job with this book. The overall plot attracted me to the book, and it didn't disappoint. The characters are well thought out and the fact that just about everything happens in one setting definitely worked. Trapped in a library during a blizzard, Elise finds herself inside with non other than, Lucent Strome, Director of Public Relations for Landseer Enterprises. With his obsessive yet charming personality, Lucent is not afraid to get what he wants and spending time with a naive/curious Elise, is tempting to him. 

As the pair start to get to know each other, they find themselves revealing their darkest secrets. Their chemistry is spontaneous and fast. Elise has a curious personality and that's what starts the story. She wants to get to know Lucent and his past. But what she doesn't know is that behind Lucent's dominant and commanding persona hides a secret that might just tear them apart. One of the many things that I liked about the story is the romantic scenes between Lucent and Elise, when they're just themselves. Lucent is a character that has an overwhelming personality, but when he is not commanding, that's when he is caring and likable. On the other hand, Elise's character could have been developed a little bit more. She is definitely curious on a lot of different topics in the story, and that's what leads her into trouble. Overall, the story was good and I recommend it for those of you that are interested in reading a more mature/adult book.

I'm glad you liked it! I'm actually writing a continuation of Elise and Lucent's story now, so there will hopefully be a lot more development for her in the future, too =)
