The Billionaire & The Barfly by Adrianne James Cover Reveal, Review, & GiveawayAuthor: Adrianne James
Title: The Billionaire & The Barfly
Published On: March 29, 2014
Genres: New Adult
Format: eARC

Henry Maximus is a super-hero-loving geek and proud of it. He’s also a genius when it comes to business. It’s how he earned the title of CEO of Maximus Gaming … not to mention the billions of dollars in his bank account. Henry’s tried living the life of a bachelor, but a different girl every night has left him wanting more. Needing more.

Aubrey Vincent is in love with her job. She’ll love it even more if she lands the promotion that gets her out of her parent’s attic. She loves it so much that she has no time for relationships, not that she was ever very good at them to begin with. Aubrey is perfectly happy with the random, nameless men she
picks up at the bar.

After a brief encounter with Aubrey on a business trip, Henry packs his bags and moves back to the small town where he grew up. Aubrey’s town. Aubrey attempts to find her way into Henry’s bed, while he tries everything to get into her heart. Will Henry’s plan to break down the walls Aubrey has built around her heart work or will his unbelievable million dollar offer scare her away?


I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is one of those books that comes along and surprises you. I’ll be honest, from the synopsis I thought it was going to be one of those cute and dirty geeky fantasy romance stories. And well, it was. But then at the same time it totally wasn’t, it was much more than just that.

Told solely from Aubrey’s point of view, (although I would have loved to see parts of the story from Henry’s!) it has some hot n’ heavy sexy scenes. But what really stuck out for me, was Aubrey’s journey towards being able to believe in herself, that the only real failure is to stop trying, and that maybe, just maybe, love is worth risking everything. How Henry manages to fit into all of that? Well that’s for you to find out!

About Adrianne James

Growing up, Adrianne couldn’t get her hands on enough books to satisfy her need for the make believe. If she finished a novel and didn’t have a new one ready and waiting for her, she began to create her own tales of magic and wonder. Now, as an adult, books still make up majority of her free time, and now her tales get written down to be shared with the world.
During the day, Adrianne uses her camera to capture life’s stories for clients of all ages and at night, after her two children are tucked in bed; she devotes herself to her written work. Adrianne is living the life she always wanted, surrounded by art and beauty, the written word and a loving family.
As a young adult and new adult author, Adrianne James has plans to bring stories of growing characters, a little romance, and perhaps a little magic and mythology down the line for her readers to enjoy.

The following two tabs change content below.
A simple man with complex tastes. He's able to leap genres in a single bound, enjoying a wide variety of books. A lover of multiple fandoms he's always willing to Boldy Go hunting Horcruxes as long as The Force is with him. And for some reason decided that doing this bio in the third person sounded better. But in all seriousness, I promote books and authors that interest me. I love covers and blurbs that catch my eye. And love to get lost in a forest of words.
