3.5 stars-- Billionaire on the Loose (Billionaires and Bridesmaids #5) by Jessica Clare

Some days...life is going well. Other days? *raises eyebrow* Your family kicks you out of your country and sends your royal ass to America. Yup. Loch's family has sent him packing and he's in New York until they decide it's safe for him to come home again. And he's going stir crazy with nothing to do until a friend sets him up with his own personal tour guide. A clumsy little gamer-girl who is pretty much his exact opposite but totally catches his eye. Billionaire on the Loose was a fun little read. It sure was.

She gave him a mischievous look. "I have to admit, though, telling me you're going to spank me if I misbehave isn't exactly the way to get me to behave."

"I will steal the television remote and force you to watch documentaries about the environment."

She made a face. "You win this round."
Loch and Taylor. Lordy. He's a hottie baron in line for the thrown and is all about sports, she's a gamer girl and totally geeks out over things. They were quite the pair and goodness but these two pretty much suck at adulting. lol He's a spot aimless and rather clueless about taking care of himself-- hello, he's royalty!-- and she's klutzy, battles keeping on track with things and is easily led because she's too kind hearted. But...I still liked them. They were kind of like overgrown kids that were figuring out how to be grow and on their own. It was kind of endearing instead of annoying.
"You used all the hot water?"

He shrugged. "Didn't realize there was so little. You should really fix that."

She stared at him, her hair dripping.
"Ah." he ate another bite of cereal and then shrugged. "Since you're awake, shall we go jogging?"

Taylor wiped a wet lock of hair from her face, hugging a towel to her body. "You're lucky you're so pretty to look at, or I'd kill you right about now."

He grinned. "I suspect you're not a morning person."

She bared her teeth at him.
And they were pretty hot. Opposites attract and all that. Heating up the sheets and just spending time together. It was cute and had some nicely heated moments. I never really felt the romance or falling in love, though. It all felt more like "falling in like" which is okay.

There was a big relationship blunder on his part--and gah yeah he needed that aforementioned spanking something fierce-- and some frustrations as she dealt with a manipulative person in her gaming world but in the end I was on board.

All in all, Billionaire on the Loose was a light fluffy read with fun characters that had a little growing up to do and managed to help each other do just that. Some fumbles along the way, a good dose of groveling, some sexy and some geeky moments and just a good time.

Taylor is a genius when it comes to computers, but understanding the opposite sex is beyond her. Because she always fumbles her flirtations, she needs help in finding her Prince Charming. So when her friend, Gretchen, sets her up as a tour guide for a new guy in town, she says yes despite her misgivings.

She just doesn’t expect Mr. Charming to actually be royalty...

A faction in his country wants him to be king, but Loch has no intention of taking the crown. To keep from being named as the next successor, he hatches a scheme to marry a totally unacceptable American woman. Quirky Taylor seems like the perfect person for the job, until Loch realizes he likes more about her than her ability to keep him off the throne.

When Loch’s secret schemes come out, his chance of happiness with Taylor are blown—unless he can find a way to get the nerdy object of his affection to believe she’s truly the queen of his heart...
