I’m no one. A mechanic. A getaway driver. A thief.
I was born on the streets, and I like it rough — life, sex, everything. My job is dirty. My past is dirty. So is my future.
Until I get out of prison and discover I’ve inherited a billion dollars.
I’m not a good billionaire. I don’t care about penthouses, fancy dinners, or private jets. I don’t care about life and death. Hell, I don’t even care about money. I’m willing to spend every penny of it on one thing.
Find the woman who gave me one unforgettable night before I went down. The woman who is too good for me. The woman I can never have.
Find her. Get revenge on the man that hurt her. And make her mine.
**Full length standalone with no cheating and no cliffhanger**

Bad Billionaire is the first book in this interconnecting series which can be read as a standalone. This is my second read and it’s clear why I fell in love with Julie Kriss and this series. The writing is fluent and edgy, her characters are standout, amusing and her stories are always hot and spicy. If you are looking for a new author or a new series to try out, you’d be silly to pass this book up especially because it’s FREE on Amazon. I love, love this entire series 😍

Olivia Maplethorpe lives in a shitty part of San Francisco in a run-down 60s reject apartment complex aptly named Shady Oaks. Graphic designer by day and wannabe artist; Olivia’s life isn’t overly exciting and kind of mundane. She lives a solitary existence and the biggest excitement to date is her fascination with her sexily inked neighbour she’s yet to meet.

“Mr. Hot Dark and Handsome was not, in any way, an artsy guy. He looked like his idea of a date was to give you a few shots of tequila, throw you down in his back seat, and give you anal.”

Devon Wilder comes from rough beginnings where good fortune has never been on his side. Unfortunately, his part time criminal activities are about to catch up with him even though the paths he’s travelled haven’t always been optional. Devon is aware of his beautiful neighbour, but she shouldn’t be mixed up with the likes of him. When he comes to Olivia’s aid, backgrounds have no bearing on the present.

“And suddenly I realised something: this man—who he was, what he did, how he lived life—excited me. I had been a law-abiding citizen all my life, but now I felt a deep thrum inside me, a vibration that made my blood pound. I looked at Devon Wilder and I wanted everything from him.”

When Devon’s luck finally runs out, it’s Olivia who offers him a temporary haven. A place to hide out and a night of passion neither will forget before they are forced to part ways.

“I’m not going to tell you where I’m going, and you’re not going to ask. If it’s ever safe to contact you, I’ll find you. Not the other way around. Are we clear? “

Fast forward 2 years and a prison sentence under his belt, Devon is befuddled to learn that he’s inherited a ton of money, an amount nobody could fathom. So, from humble beginnings, he has many wrongs to right and a girl to claim back with the means to do it……

“You’re saying,” I said finally, “that I’m sitting in this piss-stinking prison for stealing some TV’s filled with Oxy, and I’m a billionaire?”
