Billionaire Alexander Kazankov always wins. But he didn’t count on high-heeled, drop-dead sexy Lily Bennett getting in the way of his latest deal. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, not when he’s so close to making things right for his family.

Lily may walk and talk like a Southern piece of fluff, but she’s been underestimated
before. She’s determined to succeed—and no entitled, arrogant asshole, especially the too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good-kind, is going to get in her way.

Oil, meet water. Gasoline, meet spark. It’s all-out war as these two enemies go toe-to-toe in an ugly, take-no-prisoners battle to prove they’re the right choice to be CEO of the same company. All too soon, playing dirty in the boardroom leads to playing even dirtier in the dark. It’s destined to end in personal and professional disaster. So why the hell can’t they stop?

"I so loved this book. If you're a fan of Christina Lauren's Beautiful Bastard and Kresley Cole's The Professional, you too will LOVE Besting the Billionaire." -- Sweet Red Reader, Goodreads

"Both Alexi and Lily had tough childhoods and horrible past but those experiences has made them both hardworking, take no prisoners, survivors and fighters against things that they believe in. I really loved this book and I can’t wait to read more of Alison’s books." -- Ofelia, NetGalley

"I don't read a lot of billionaire romance because I don't find it convincingly written, having worked in a big corporate setting myself. However, I'll happily read billionaire romance written by this author because she's done it so very right." -- E.J. Frost, Goodreads

Billionaire Blackmail (Billionaire Bad Boys Book 1) - Kindle edition by Aimes, Alison. Contemporary Romance Kindle eBooks @

Besting the Billionaire is book two in the Billionaire Bad Boys series by Alison Aimes. This is an enemies to lovers romance and holy smoke, these two! In the blurb it says oil, meet water, gasoline, meet spark! That’s a perfect analogy. Because there is no better word to describe when they come tog ...more

Well.... that was one hell of a story. I loved every word, line and the two main characters Alexi (hmph!) and Lily aka Armageddon as Alexi so lovingly referred to as.
Both of these two took my by surprise, Alexi doesn't have a kind bone is his Russian body and is out for revenge, taking what he thin ...more

This is the first book I’ve read from Alison Aimes and I am hooked. Besting the Billionaire was not the book I expected when I requested to read it from NetGalley but once I started reading it I was just glad I did. It exceeded my expectations, it had a little bit of everything romance, comedy, stea ...more

I don't read a lot of billionaire romance because I don't find it convincingly written, having worked in a big corporate setting myself. However, I'll happily read billionaire romance written by this author because she's done it so very right. The characters' motivations felt real - they are each dr ...more

By Isha January 13, 2018

It makes me proud when an author sees fit to give her alpha male, a taste of his own back. For that reason I loved Besting the Billionaire. Lily is a worthy adversary for Mr. King of the Mountain. When these two cross paths what follows is an intense battle of the minds, hormones and sexes. Backing ...more

What a story!
I think the billionaire actually went home with the best ‘win!’ Alexi is a man on a vendetta. The prize: Winslow Industries. Newly named CEO of Winslow Industries in her husband’s will, Lily is faced with a formidable battle to retain that title. She’s quite a woman! Hardly anyone belie ...more

By Elaine January 14, 2018

This is a very different take on billionaire romances! In this instance, Lily Bennett’s elderly husband died and chose to make her the CEO of his family business - much to the annoyance of one of her two step sons. Her husband had been ill for some time and there are secrets about their relationship ...more

Besting the Billionaire is not your usual tale of the billionaire businessman finding love - nor does is have the same type of heroine. Instead this book is a tale of two strong and independent business minded people who want the same company - One who currently has the legal right to it, and the ot ...more

Wow!!!! This book was intense! Full of suspense and mystery I was on the edge of my seat until the very end.

Lily's husband died and left her the CEO of his company. No one has faith in a woman running the multi-billion dollar company. Alexander wants his nemesis' company and nothing will stand in his way, not even the beautiful, smart, sexy Lily. I loved the banter between these two that ended in hot sex! ...more

This is the first book I have read by Alison Aimes and I was pleasantly surprised by Besting the Billionaire. I won't tell you the storyline because you can read that for yourself. Nor will I add any spoilers.

By Lori December 28, 2017

First I must say that the guy on the cover brings Alexi to life. He is exactly how I pictured him in this story. And what a great character Alexi is. He is so strong, aggressive, total alpha, and uber protective of those who are important to him. Lily is a strong woman, who you can't help but admire ...more
