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.

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 of ...more

It doesn’t matter if you run a multi-billion dollar corporation when your brother on his death bed asks you to finish his book you do it. Regardless of what is required of you to accomplish his last request, so you don’t know anything about romance, you just do the rese ...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 to ...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.

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 nothing a ...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 would ...more

Selalu tertarik dengan tema cerita yang berhubungan dengan menyamar. Yah, walaupun pas baca novel ini sudah bisa nebak ceritanya bakalan gimana.

Seenggaknya nih novel versi terjemahannya agak lebih sopan dari novel Harlequin pada umumnya karena nge-skip adegan xxx-nya. Lumayan bikin diri ini anteng. ...more

I got this book from Netgalley in return for an honest review.

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 roman ...more

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, an ...more
