Hawaiin Masquerade

Hawaiian Masquerade (Destination Billionaire Romance) by [Christensen, Rachelle J.]

This is my first Billionaire Romance book. I wasn't sure how it would play out. 

I have to say that I love the fact that the heroine is the one with all the money in this story. Especially as the cover leads me to believe it's going to be the hero. 

Thankfully, though, the heroine, Lexi, earned her billions through hardwork building a successful company with her brother. She trades in the Chicago corporate life for a serene new beginning on Kauai. That would be one of my top picks of places to carve out a life. The island is gorgeous and aptly described by Ms. Christensen. It makes me want to board a plane destined for there, now!

The heart tug of war is well played and the characters likable while being real. I would definitely read more by her and more in this series, especially if the others are relationship focused and clean like this one. I'd even like to see more of the story between Lexi and Derek after all ends well. 

Bring on the billionaires.

Lexi closed her eyes. The waves rolled in slowly, rhythmically, with a dependability that would never be doubted. Shawn had been her rock, and they’d worked together with a rhythm that had kept their jobs and life in sync. Before Derek, she might’ve entertained a future with Shawn … but the dark-haired man with a camera bag slung over his shoulder had changed everything. 

When Lexi Burke escaped the remnants of a cold winter in Chicago for the beaches of Kauai, it wasn’t a random vacation. She left the hectic pace of Burke Enterprises behind with enough money to retire at age thirty-two, intent on settling into the idyllic existence of island life. Until she met local photographer Derek Mitchell—a talented man with a grudge against rich tourists. 

From art night to snorkeling lessons, hiking, and chopping coconuts, Lexi can’t talk herself out of spending time with the handsome, hardworking man who knows the value of every dollar. She also can’t find a way to tell him the truth about herself. But then Derek is selected to help in a benefit at a masquerade ball as one of the eligible bachelors up for auction. Lexi must decide whether to wear a mask or unveil her true self and risk losing Derek’s trust and a chance at love.
