Stop!

He doesn’t want you to pay him back, he wants to take care of you!

 Just let him! 

Sheesh!


Um… Yeah… He’s your boyfriend!
You are just in denial!


Yeah, she may be analytical and thinking everything out, but she is still going to do something stupid.

I just feel it in my bones!


Why is Jarod so jaded?

I guess we will find out in the next book. #2 is Jarod’s.


@ Chapter 11


Beatrice and Elsie are a hoot!

I just love their little meddling hearts!


Dude, you know that everyone is right about giving opportunity for the attack.

It sucks, but if you want this to end, you are going to have to take the chance.


 

@ Chapter 13


Boy her mom is a piece of work!
I could see the want for her to marry well and to her mental level, but the comments about her scars were just mean, and so not what a mother should be saying to her daughter!

Makes me super angry!


Hope’s HEA is part of another series.

Billionaire Unmasked takes place between books 0.05 and 01 of The Sinclairs Series.


I’m so envious about the dance.

What is is about any kind of dancing that makes men the world over tremble in fear?

Poor Sarah, your mom really did a number on ya!

What the Hell!

How does a nerdy workaholic have that psycho of an enemy.
There is defiantly something she is hiding!

Raise you hand if you know where Dante is going to be working!

So there IS a backstory she is hiding! And Yeah! What happened in Chicago!

@ Chapter 08


Now we get the story!

Didn’t see the story going that way!
& So sad!

Listen to Dante!
Your stalker is going to find you eventually no matter where you go.
You are their obsession.

That’s why she didn’t want him to see her naked!
Duh!
Didn’t think about that.

If guys would just share their thoughts, there would be so many less fights/arguments!

Talk about mind over matter!
Don’t think I could of did all that walking plus drive my car with glass in my foot.
Seriously!

I’d be hitting that center up at least weekly!

Girl, accept that peace offering!

Those little old ladies are going to hook you up Dante!
Can’t Wait!
Mwhaaaa!

I’ve never been able to get behind lobster rolls or crab cakes. Does anyone actually eat those things? People always talk about them in movies, books, and on TV, but never met anyone that has actually said that they love eating them.

Jarod was the one behind building the homes there and not Grady.
I thought it was Grady!

Way to be a cock-blocker Jarod!
Hope Dante gets you back in your book!

 

@ Chapter 05


Come on guys!
Let the man get laid!

Then go get her Dante!

Finally, the birth order layout! Wasn’t quite what I thought it was.

Evan is 33
Grady 32
(The last book made he sound like the baby of the family)
Dante 31
Cockblocker Jared is 29
Hope is 27
(I did not peg her for the baby either, I guess their mom kept going till she got the girl, to whom she left behind with all the boys too, what an Asshole!)

Hope & Jason Sutherland’s HEA book is part of another series if you want to read/listen to that.

Isn’t playing on schedule what she is actually doing by playing before bingo every week?
I’m just saying.

@ Chapter 06


If someone else interrupts this I’m going to scream!

Ok, the “I’m your doctor” bit is getting old like yesterday!
I want to run that record through an industrial shredder where there nothing but tiny slivers left so she can never put it back together.
Ugh!

Funeral!!!!!! What?!

Patrick? Who’s Patrick?
Mrs. Scott you got me stressing and I’m not even a page in!

So this is Dante Sinclair’s book. Which I’m sure you knew already.
He’s a Detective, and I’m sure a HOT one.

Only half-way through the chapter and I already got the feels for this man.

Let’s all together now give Dante a big group hug!

We you Dante!

Yay! Grady! We you too!

@ Chapter 02


Sooo…. We meet our heroine, Dr. Sarah Baxter.

Mrs. Busy Body, the town gossip Elsie Renfrew is hinting to the story line possibilities.
Regardless of the fact that Sarah doesn’t seem to be interested in all the destiny talk and matchmaking efforts, I’m all for!

I have a feeling we will see Elsie’s partner in crime, Beatrice Gardener, not only later in this story but quite possibly in future stories.

Awe… They Dante too!

Ooooo… House Calls. That has sexy time written all over it!

So Sarah is 27 and a Doctor. She has mentioned early advancement in school, so I ‘m sure there is a longer story there.

@ Chapter 03


Boo! No Smexy Shower!

Applause for the random trivia!
No one seems to truly appreciates it, unless it’s trivia night at the bar.

Yes. You are an asshole.
Now think about how you can make it up to her!

Now we are getting somewhere!

Review: The Billionaire’s Christmas by J. S. Scott

My Reviews
Good Start to the Series


This is just a novella, so it is considered number 0.05 of the series, but it’s still the beginning.

We get a good introduction to the Sinclair family as we start with Grady, the Amesport Beast.

This short story is a play on the Beauty and the Beast classic, minus the fantasy elements. Grady Sinclair is our Beast and Emily Ashworth is our Beauty. There is still a castle of a house and hiding hero, but Grady is not quite as beastly as he is made out to be. He is just a recluse with a social anxiety issue. Our Beauty, however, does make a deal out of desperation.

Grady is adorkable and totally going on my book boyfriend list!

By the end of the book, all the Sinclair children have been introduced. It is not totally clear on their birth order, but the prologue leads to a different impressions than the epilogue does.

There are characters mentioned that are part of another series by J. S. Scott, so if you have read The Billionaire’s Obsession Series, some people in this one will be familiar to you. Given how tight these boys are, I wonder if Grady has already shown up in that series. It is quite possible that all the Sinclair siblings have made appearances, but I have not read that one yet.

The narrator Elizabeth Powers is excellent, however the volume level of the recording is not consistent. The whispers that are used to represent the heroine thoughts, get so low to the point that the volume needs to be raised to hear what is being said. This consistently takes you out of the story because of the need to constantly adjust the volume, which is not always easy to do on certain devices.

Overall I give this 5 of 5 stars! And can’t wait to get started on the next one!

@ The Epilogue


We finally get to meet the whole Sinclair brood!

There is Grady, Dante, Jared, Evan, and Hope for a total of 5 Sinclair siblings!

Given the events of the Prologue, I would of pegged Grady as the baby. Did anyone else think this or was I alone in those thoughts? It seemed as if he was the sole child left alone to deal with their horrible father and unresponsive mother because everyone else had left for anywhere but home cause they were older. I guess I read that all wrong.

According to what we find out in the epilogue, Grady is quite possibly the 2nd born! I don’t know where Hope fits in the equation of birth order because her position is quite vague. So if anyone else knows please post in comments.

So now that we are at the end of this Novella/Prequel of the Sinclair’s Series, how do you all feel, and are you as excited as I am to get into the next book?

 

F. Y. I.

Grady’s friends, Simon, Sam, and Jason all have their own books in another series written by J. S. Scott: The Billionaire’s Obsession Series. These books are in both e-book and audiobook format.

Simon: The Billionaire’s Obsession
Sam: Heart of the Billionaire
Jason: Billionaire Unmasked

F. Y. I. I.

Hope is NOT part of the Sinclair series!

I know it sounds CRAZY but there is a reason. Publishers like order to the series structure and their opinion on that may not always jive with us as readers opinions on the matter.

F. Y. I. I. I.

Grady’s friend Jason is Hope’s intended so if you want her story, you have to refer to his book Billionaire Unmasked if you want to complete ALL of the Sinclair stories.

@ Chapter 06


Grady was so brave! No one’s going think he is so beastly now, despite going a little beastly at the party. People might still call him a grumpy home body, but no more the Amesport Beast!

Finally we get some sexy time! It seems like forever!

The background info on Grady was enlightening, and explained some things, but the stuff about his mom made me feel sad and a little mad!

I just want to make a public announcement here:

Regardless of your emotional distraught, ladies please don’t run for the rickety dock, or the frozen pond, or the woods, or the street in your grief madness! Yes is can sometimes feel extreme and overwhelming but let’s not make it worse by doing something that is more than likely going to end in really painful tears, and most likely scars!

Is anyone else struggling with the “whisper” issue? The narrator’s whispers gets too low and it is hard to hear. Not sure if it’s her, the recording, or the production process but it is a pain. I either have to listen to the whole thing at an uncomfortable level of loudness, miss what is being said, or have my tablet awkwardly in hand at all times so that I can constantly raise and lower the volume. All of which cut into my enjoyment, which is sad because she is actually a good narrator aside from the whisper issue.

I wish someone would pay for my contacts! Seriously, I just went up to the XR Torics which are even more expensive than the regular torics l am currently wearing. If my eyes get much worse I won’t be able to wear them. 🙁

Grady is totally adorable. He wants to take care of Emily so bad, and she just won’t let him. Well she tries not to, but he often wins. There is a saying about gifts and horses and mouths isn’t there?

So far we have older brother Evan, younger brother Jared, and a sister. There are other brothers or brother but it hasn’t been made clear yet.

Grady braves his fears and goes to the party. Would you brave you biggest fear to make the potential love of your life happy?

Read Along With Me: The Billionaire’s Christmas Part 02

Read Along With Me
@ Chapter 01


Same time of year, just many more later, and Grady is now 31 and known as the Amesport Beast. We also find out that all of the Sinclair children have come to live on the Amesport Peninsula. So at least they are all sticking together as far as where they built their houses. It doesn’t appear that any of them, except Grady spend any time at home.

We are introduced to the heroine, Emily Ashworth and her BFF Miranda “Randi” Tyler. Emily is the director of the YCOA and her ex has made off with all the center’s funds, and right before Christmas! She has no choice but to seek a large donation from the only person in residence with that kind of cash. So cue the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack cause that’s what this story is shaping up to be.

On the way to The Beast’s Lair, she notes the location is one of her favorites and proceeds to eat shit due to the snowy conditions. I totally feel for the girl! I am so accident prone myself.

A mix up turns into an offer she can’t refuse, because, hey, it’s for the children! And, ok, Grady is hot and lights Emily’s fire, so it’s a win, win situation!

What would you do if you were in Emily’s position?
