Billionaire Liam Manning has been too busy building his internet security empire to care about romance. So when a death-bed promise to his brother forces him to prove he can properly seduce a woman, Liam relies on his strengths. Hacking into an online dating site to find a suitable “love tutor” is as easy as it is logical.
All Lorelei Torres wants is a family and an honest man to love. After falling for one-too-many Mr. Wrongs, Lorelei’s mother signs her up for an online dating site. Maybe it’s time to let an impartial computer chose a man for her—especially if that computer plans to match her with sexy men like Liam.
But Liam’s made a critical error. Lorelei has breached the firewall around his heart, and if he falls for her, he’ll have to reveal his real identity—and his deception—to the only woman who’s ever made him question why love isn’t on his to-do list.
"Strong sexual tension and the colourful dabs of originality made for an engrossing read." - author of Hard to Hold, Incy Black
Well...I finally read it! After reading Miss Guided last week I have been itching to get my hands on Played by the Billionaire. I was a bit nervous. I was worried that I would be disappointed. I mean Miss Guided rocked so very hard that I just knew that there was no way Alexia Adams could pull it... ...more
Some promises are made to be broken.
This is my first read by Ms. Adams and I have I loved her writing style. I love when I’m so in tune with the characters that their emotions are felt while reading. When I read a synopsis about a billionaire are a scheme that they come up with because they need... ...more
ARC from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
I thought this book had a mixture of interesting yet not over the top plot and a heartwarming romance between two lonely souls. I enjoyed reading it.
Geeky, handsome and single by choice, Liam feels obliged to do as his brother asked and finish the... ...more
Well-done interfering family members are the greatest, even if they don't get much (or any) actual screen time. That was certainly the case in Played, and what makes it even better is that there was interference from both families, not just the hero or the heroine's.
Liam - hehehe. He knows nothin... ...more
For $.99 cents and just wanting something light and fluffy this book fit the bill: pure escapism - beautiful heroine on the rebound, handsome rich totally naive billionaire and friends, family and acquaintances pushing from both sides to have these two find love.
Although in the real world one wou... ...more

Can a relationship built on lies really survive? That is the question that I asked myself when I started reading this. Billionaire computer genius Liam MacKenzie has to fulfill his dead brother's last wish- to finish writing his romance mystery book. The problem is, Liam has never had a relations... ...more
I got this book from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
Liam is a Billionaire who is more comfortable cracking internet codes and sites then having real relationships with people. His brothers dying request was for Liam to complete his novel for him. In order to do this Liam needs to find... ...more
I thought the billionaire sub genre had played (sorry) itself out but Alexia Adams has found a new facet to it that made for a fast, fun read. If the career of the hero (billionaire tech genius) isn't new, her creation of a man who has to learn about romance so he can finish his dead brother's ro... ...more

Oh it's rarely good when family members stick their nose in your business. This was one of those rare times, and how rare is it that members of both families interfered and it still ends up well.

Packed with sexual tension...
A solid fun read that put me right in the shoes of the characters. Liam is hot, and it was wonderful to watch him squirm as one little lie (innocent enough) spiralled into a more and more complex web of mistruths as his attraction for Loralei deepens. Loralei is open,... ...more
Review Posted on HarlequinJunkie.com
Played by the Billionaire by Alexia Adams: Lorelei Torres grew up in a loving atmosphere, despite the fact that her father is serving a 25 year sentence for robbing a bank and killing a guard. Her mom is her everything, working two or more jobs at a t... ...more
"[...]PLAYED BY THE BILLIONAIRE sucked me in and didn’t spit me out until the characters received their well-deserved happily-ever-afters. It was completely predictable at times, but who cares? I enjoyed myself immensely and sometimes a girl needs a fluffy, feel good novel that will tide her over... ...more
I enjoyed this. I did get somewhat annoyed by Liam constantly second guessing himself about what he was doing. It was good that he did so he didn't look like an ass but it got a little tedious to read. This wasn't a life changing book but I definitely thought it was an enjoyable way to spend an e... ...more

This is the debut book for this author and I do look forward to her next book.
Thank you to Netgalley and to Entangled Indulgence for the ARC in exchange for my honest thoughts. ...more
