Rules are made to be broken . . . If England had yearbooks, I'd probably be "Arden St. Ives: Man Least Likely to Set the World on Fire." So far, I haven't. I've no idea what I'm doing at Oxford, no idea what I'm going to do next and, until a week ago, I had no idea who Caspian Hart was. Turns out, he's brilliant, beautiful . . . oh yeah, and a billionaire. It's impossible not to be captivated by someone like that. But Caspian Hart makes his own rules. And he has a lot of them. About when I can be with him. What I can do with him. And when he'll be through with me. I'm good at doing what I'm told in the bedroom. The rest of the time, not so much. And now that Caspian's shown me glimpses of the man behind the billionaire I know it's him I want. Not his wealth, not his status. Him. Except that might be the one thing he doesn't have the power to give me. Arden and Caspian's love story continues in How to Blow It with a Billionaire, coming Fall 2017.… (més)

I found this a bit light and frothy but quite enjoyable. I love Arden's (lack of) fashion sense, and there are some things I'm eager to see resolved, so I'll definitely be reading the next in the series. It doesn't have the depth of, for example, For Real, but I have no regrets. ( )

Ardy was charming, in his own way, for the first half of the book, after that his ramblings just got annoying. To me as a character Caspian is so much more interesting. But due to the non-communication I feel like the story wasn't going anywhere. Especially because Caspian told Ardy his terms and Ardy said he understands and accepts them. But I don't think he truly understood what Caspian was asking, even though it was so simple: "... listen Arden, I won't have time for you coz I work a lot, I need someone who can adjust to my schedule without me worrying about hurt feelings...". And why does Ardy get pissed and hurt? Coz Caspian canceled their dinner date. *eyeroll*

I also couldn't decide if the author loved 50 Shades of Grey so much, that this story is a homage to that book, or is it supposed to be a mockery. I kind of feel like it's a it of both.
No BDSM in this first instalment yet though.

Sooo I am not sure I will continue the series. I wasn't that enamored. ( )

I spent most of the book rolling my eyes at Arden because I was under the impression he didn't really like Caspian, just the image he was projecting of how he wished Caspian was.
When Arden himself said it, it somehow makes me feel better about the whole story~
“It wasn’t like that. It was messed up in this totally uncool way. I got caught up in this mirage of who I thought he was. And I kept stumbling after it, believing in it, like a complete dongle, and letting him hurt me over and over and over again.”
I'm still not sold on Caspian's sincerity though, so I'm looking forward to some character redemption in the next installation. ( )

FGMAMTC Blog Review  Excerpt & Giveaway
This book is kind of for the kinky billionaire loving readers and for the readers that don't get into the mega rich BDSM stories. It has hints of those themes, but they aren't the full plot. It is a romance between Arden and Caspian, but it's really mostly about Arden. The reader gets inside his head about school and life worries. Everything is from his point of view. His friendship with his roommate is very cuddly. He's mother has an interesting relationship. Caspian's sister spends some time with Arden. It's an inside look at his final bit of college and the time right after. Anyone who is a fan of this author, M/M romance, erotica, beyond rich love interests, college and new adult fiction or British contemporary romance should check out How to Bang a Billionaire.

This book is so much like FSoG in that it's not at all like FSoG.

If you're an old friend you might realize that long ago, that series was what got me into romance and erotica. In my younger more astute years, what I read sat firmly in the literary fiction section. There were never 6 packs on the cover, or embracing overwrought couples in coordinated clothing. I read a lot. Then...I had a child. My idea of reading became parenting boards and blogs and books so that I could do everything so exactly just right. Then I had my second child. I really missed reading. Ultimately though, my brain could barely handle anything above a Twitter feed. And somehow FSoG popped up on my phone. In ebook, cause egads I would never be caught with that in physical form. You know what? When I had decision fatigue and could barely pay attention but really really wanted to feel sexy...FSoG was exactly what I needed. It was horrifying. But I adored it. Oh sure, I was under no assumptions that it was good... But Christian Grey dictating my every move felt like the exact fantasy of a woman with two very small children.

Did I realize Ana was kind of a dumbass? Yep. Did I think in real life, I'd actually prefer pressing the heel of my shoe to Christian's nads, teeth gritted, ready to slice his throat if he tried that shit with me in real life? Yep. Did it hinder my enjoyment? Ummm. Not really.

So... Believe me when I say I was looking forward to Alexis Halls nod to that series only to realize it's only a nod in feel. Sure, the billionaire has no emotional intelligence. Sure, he's controlled. A major difference here is he's not ridiculous. He doesn't forbid (well yet) or dictate what Arden can or cannot do, and he seems like he's cracking. Like he's trying. Like he genuinely does not get how to not be broken.

And Arden is not Ana. They have instalust, sure, but when he has a personality and a sense of self in a very believable (to me) 20 year old package? It's easy to see why anyone would be attracted to Arden's light. And importantly, Arden's desires align with Caspian's style but he still demands something from it. He's not weak. He's just twenty.

So this angsty, roller coaster first person POV is undoubtedly not for everyone. And I think listening really helped. I could not resist Joel Leslie's performance of Nick, Arden, or Caspian. They were all fantastic, charismatic, and distinct. they had depth. It was funny. It was a delight, it had angst and I was hooked. I highly recommend the audio. ( )
