My Favorite Friday Faves
I’ve been doing FRIDAY FAVES since 2018! I can’t believe how fast time goes. Bobo’s Book Bank (aka. Me!) has been through so many ups and downs over the years. Soon, in January, this blog will be celebrating FOUR YEARS!
This is a short month for me because I’ll be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with my family and friends at the end of the month. That only leaves 3 Friday’s for the month of November! And because I’m still recovering and catching up from COVID, I’ve decided to be a little lazy. I went through some of my very first Friday Faves posts in 2018 and found three of my favorite ones! Ready to do some time traveling??

Now I know that we all have heard of those bad boy billionaires that make us drool every time we use the elevator (me at least!). Christian Grey, Gideon Cross, Jesse Ward…excuse me while I wipe my chin because DAAYYYMMNN! These books opened up a whole new world of possibilities. Today, I have 5 more hot billionaires to add to the list. They might not all have a red room of pleasure but these were all 5 star reads for me!

Knight (The Unfinished Heroes Series Book 1) Kindle Edition by Kristen Ashley

Then she finds herself at a party where she doesn’t want to be and she meets Knight.

But when Anya comes to his nightclub and finds herself in a situation, he knows someone has to look after her, he can’t fight it anymore and he decides that man will be him.
Knight teaches Anya that, just as with the bad, in life you should also expect the good. And he teaches her this by giving it to her.
But Knight has a dark past and just as he desires Anya for exactly who she is, he fears when she finds out exactly the man he has become and always intends to be, she’ll leave him for good, normal and clean.
Vicious (Sinners of Saint) Kindle Edition by L.J. Shen
They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true.
The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares.
He is a brilliant lawyer.
A skilled criminal.
A beautiful liar.
A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover.
Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.
She is a starving artist.
Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom.
Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down.
She paid the price.
Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate.
That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t.
So she hates me. Big fucking deal.
She better get used to me.
Vicious a complete standalone and a part of the Sinners of Saint series
Bossman Kindle Edition by Vi Keeland
The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression.
I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date.
He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice.
So I told him to mind his own damn business―his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business―and went back to my miserable date.
When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date.
I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.
When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out.
But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us―telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood.
My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting.
When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again.
I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people?Then again…
What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?
“Oh shit, I’m a dangerous man with some money in my pocket (keep up)
So many pretty girls around me and they waking up the rocket (keep up)
Why you mad, fix ya face, ain’t my fault y’all be jocking (keep up)
Players only, come on
Put your pinky rings up to the moon
Girls, what y’all trying to do?
Twenty four karat magic in the air
Head to toe so player
Uh, look out!”
Do you enjoy Billionaire Romance? Have a GRAND day y’all!💜
