The Billionaire's Intern by Jackie Ashenden
(The Billionaire Fairy Tales, #3)

The Billionaire's Intern (Billionaire Fairy Tales #3)She was made to feel she was a failure as a daughter. She became the underachiever they expected until her party-girl antics caused the ultimate pain for more than just herself. For her entire life she just couldn’t be still, couldn’t be quiet and couldn’t resist the little voices that encouraged her to “do something, anything to create action and hold her attention and imagination.” Now Kira is a broken woman, trying desperately to re-create herself into a responsible adult who can give back to society. She also has ADHD, and a father who wants her to spy on his best friend’s son.

He has become a heartless, cold and demanding monster, someone who people keep their distance from, someone feared and obeyed and his quest to kill his emotions all started when he lost the love of his life. Now he is the COO of his ruthless father’s corporation and is out to uncover his father’s treacheries at any cost. Lorenzo doesn’t have time to babysit the little hellion he remembered from years before, but is forced to take Kira on as an intern. Kira is all grown up, and he cannot help but notice.

Together they will either destroy themselves or bring to light a history of cooked books and stolen money…

Jackie Ashenden’s THE BILLIONAIRE’S INTERN is a quick read with raw, hot, down and dirty sex between two damaged souls, one trying to completely dominate and obliterate the past and the other desperately seeking just one person’s unconditional approval in her life. Lorenzo’s character was a complete turnoff for me and he never could redeem himself in my eyes. I did adore Kira, who owns her mistakes and wants nothing more than to atone for them. The sex, while definitely heated and raw, just didn’t scream sexy to me, period. I wanted more depth, less vague past references and more meat to make me believe and leave my world to enter theirs.

I received an ARC edition from St. Martin's Press - Swerve in exchange for my honest review.
