Taylor is a genius when it comes to computers, but understanding the opposite sex is beyond her. Because she always fumbles her flirtations, she needs help in finding her Prince Charming. So when her friend, Gretchen, sets her up as a tour guide for a new guy in town, she says yes despite her misgivings.

She just doesn’t expect Mr. Charming to actually be royalty…

A faction in his country wants him to be king, but Loch has no intention of taking the crown. To keep from being named as the next successor, he hatches a scheme to marry a totally unacceptable American woman. Quirky Taylor seems like the perfect person for the job, until Loch realizes he likes more about her than her ability to keep him off the throne.

When Loch’s secret schemes come out, his chance of happiness with Taylor are blown—unless he can find a way to get the nerdy object of his affection to believe she’s truly the queen of his heart…


Billionaire on the Loose starts with Loch, the Duck of Bellissime and cousin of Griffin from Once Upon a Billionaire, is told by his family that he needs to leave the country, as small group of the populations wants him to be the new next heir to the crown because his cousin, the crown princess, married an American. Loch doesn’t want to be king and most of all he doesn’t want to rule a country. To calm down those people, he accepts to go to America to lay low, and get some unwanted vacations. Thanks to Griffin and his friends, Loch has an excuse to go to America, be a best man in the wedding of Gretchen and Hunter. Once Loch, gets to America his view of life changes so drastically when he meets a Taylor, a woman stock in Gretchen’s bathroom wearing a Doctor Who scarf. Taylor is the opposite of any women he has ever meet, and intrigues him for that reason. A suppose one-night stand changes them forever.

I liked Billionaire on the Loose, the stories by Jessica Clare are always fun to read, as we never know what the billionaires are going to do to screw up their chance to be happy. Like other books in the series, this one has the feel of a quick read, and it’s able to engage the reader. It didn’t take me to long to finish the book because if you have some free time, you can read it all in a sit down.

I loved the way that Taylor thinks, and how she descried Loch as Thor look at like. For the entire time I read the book I pictured Chris Hemsworth. It was very interesting the use of online gaming and the geekiness of RPG instalments, most of all because it’s something that is popular in these days. In my opinion, the book used well the topic of online harassment; it shows it in an example different to what we know, and even though it looks like one-side love, it’s still harassment if the other person is not interested.  

I was hoping for a different ending for Taylor’s problem, but even though it was still good. I also expected for Loch to open some kind of shelter after he meet his friend, and wanted to helped people.

The wedding is approaching and I liked how that the stories of the bridesmaids are interlocking, and we see parts of the events of the other books in every one of them.

If you are fan of Jessica Clare, or her Billionaire Boys Club series, the I recommend you, Billionaire on the Loose. Here we meet a man that has been handed everything to him all his life and he doesn’t even know how much money has, and a woman that tries to keep everything together in her life, but at the same times everything she loves to do, is losing it’s meaning to her.
