I will NOT fall for the smart-mouthed, pretty-boy billionaire who owns Oakley Island. But his yacht is another story …

Love and happily-ever-after? It’s not for me. I’m much happier keeping everyone at arm’s length, focusing on my government cybersecurity work.

But then I push things a little too far and hack my way into trouble. When I need to lay low and stay off the radar for a bit, what better place to do so than on Oakley Island with my sisters?

With limited housing options, I reluctantly agree to stay on the yacht of the very annoying Benedict King-the billionaire who has been messing-flirting?-with me since we met.

I did NOT agree, however, to a voyage out to sea.

But I wake up to find the yacht that should be docked and empty somewhere in the Atlantic with two government agents tasked with babysitting me and one Benedict King.

Who also lied about being my boyfriend.

Typical rich man-thinking he can take whatever he wants.

But he won’t take my heart. Not even when I see his softer side, see behind his walls, see the real man behind the reputation.

Honestly, this might be more dangerous than any of the other trouble I stirred up. Because if I fall for Benedict King, I’m not sure there’s any hope of rescue.


Book Review

Thank you to the authors for the ALC of Sadie and the Bad Boy Billionaire by Jenny Proctor and Emma St. Clair. All opinions are my own.



While I enjoyed the first two books in this series, I absolutely loved this third book! It was so cute, and I loved all the romantic moments and swoony kisses.

Benedict was adorable and took such good care of Sadie. I loved how patient he was with her and how well he communicated his feelings towards her.

Sadie grew a lot in this story, and I really appreciated how she learned to let people in like Benedict and her sisters. I also liked how the authors portrayed migraines in this book because I really identified with Sadie’s experiences.

I listened to the audiobook for this, and it was so well done. I loved having dual narrators, and they fit their characters really well. I’d highly recommend it!

Final Thoughts

Overall, I think you should give this book a chance if you love closed-door romances with sweet characters and a little danger.
