For the last week I’ve been in bed, unwell. This book has been with me. I’ve never read anything by this author. There was a little bit of ‘hood’, a little bit of romance, a lot of suspense, a thrilling story, a self-made female billionaire I loved to death, and a hero millionaire I adored. As I read, I felt like the author is a natural born story-teller. It was a five plus stars read for me!
About The Book:
Indigo Ace had a rough life growing up. Her mother is a prostitute and her father is a pimp who despises her. Solace Mack is the only pimp in Atlanta, but when Indigo’s mother dies and Solace kicks his only daughter out on the streets, Indigo is forced to boss up. She follows in her father’s footsteps and becomes a female pimp, infringing on her father’s territory. Soon, she becomes the richest female in the south and Solace does everything he can to destroy the billion dollar empire his daughter built. It isn’t long before a war ensues between the father and the daughter and many lives are lost.
In the midst of it all, Indigo meets Bentlee Paxton, who is hood royalty. His name rings bells all over the country, and he’s ready to go to war in order to protect Indigo. While the two figure out what their future together holds, they’re forced to dodge bullets and fight off enemies.
Will they live to see their future? Better yet, will Indigo’s billion dollar empire fall at the hands of her father?
5 Plus Stars… For A New To Me Author!
I don’t typically read this genre, but the story-line sounded very intriguing. I am really glad I had the chance to read it. I’m not one to give away a plot or spoilers but here’s what I loved.
The characters I found them very well rounded and believable Indigo is a strong woman, who is just twenty-one by the time she is an actual billionaire. This is where I really do give props to the author, sometimes it’s hard to relate to young adult characters, but I never had that problem at all being an older reader, I really like Indigo and the way she drives the story forward it kept me so interested. Her story is one of a female who is given an opportunity, once her mother passes, she grabs it with both hands. Determined to move on from her ‘hood’ upbringing. I was very engaged in where she was on her way to all throughout this story.
The other characters are equally as interesting, the hero who Indigo ends up with Bentlee he also too is such a wonderful male lead. He is believable to read, non-typical, and really appealed to me as a character. The romance between these two I enjoyed experiencing the development, it was not instant there’s plenty of push and pull, but ultimately they fall for each other.
I found that the author’s story-telling really kept me turning pages, one moment the story would feel very much like and urban read, with lots happening, then there’s a location change. The characters and story head to the Maldives! I loved the location change, as the story also changes, the romance comes in. Then once back in Atlanta, the suspense, action, and story changes again. I found it well paced and exciting to read with the story-telling.
Overall, for me someone who is not a typical reader of the genre I really enjoyed this story, and I am very much looking forward to part two as it ends on a cliff- hanger. Again, typically I prefer a story to have a conclusion rather than leave me hanging, so here I really have to say the author has done an excellent job at grabbing readers. I will pre-order part two for it’s release next month. Overall five plus stars from my reading experience. Billionaire Baddie for me is a well written, engaging, enjoyable story with a little bit of everything from romance, suspense, and of course street life in Atlanta, featuring great like-able characters. I recommend it if you fancy something different to read, and enjoy reading or following strong female leads, with high stakes, expectations, a fearless attitude, and millionaire men who are very like-able! It’s a free read on Kindle Unlimited at the time of reviewing.
