The Rebel Billionaire, by Ivy Layne is a 342-page contemporary romance novel and is the fifth book out of a 10-part series (other reviews can be found below). And since this is a 10-part series, you can expect reviews by this author pretty back to back for the next few weeks as I go through the books. It is written from a first-person POV, two-sided.
Ivy Layne is an author who generally writes dirty, dirty sex scenes. So if you’re someone who is looking for some dirty read (which there is nothing wrong with that) this is the book for you. I will warn you ahead of time if you are reading this series, this book in particular had A LOT of sex…to the point that I actually skimmed some of it.
First off, I’m going to apologize now. I normally structure my reviews differently, but I’ve been underwater working on my own book so writing reviews is secondary to me so I’m quite behind in reviews. As of now, I have 11 books to review in the queue. The next few months my reviews will be short and succinct.

The fun thing about the Winters Saga is the author does a great job creating a world where so many families (Winters, Sinclairs, etc) intersect which gives her the opportunity to write more novels on those individuals without having to start from scratch.
Charlie and Lucas, finally, we move onto one of the two girls in the Winters family and Charlie (Charlotte) is an interesting character. She grew up being protected by her older brothers and her older cousins, because Charlie? She’s the baby of the Winters clan. She worked as a VP at the Winters Inc company until her brother, the CEO, Aiden, kicked her out.
Lucas…well, we met him in The Billionaire’s Pet (#3), he showed up at the end of the book, killing the antagonist in the story, Big John. He’s a man of many talents, not only is ex SpecOps (Special Operations), but he’s a freelancer and computer hacker. So yeah…man of many talents.
After Charlie is fired she leaves the Winters family home and strikes off on her own moving next to Lucas. She ends up moving into, well, the way it’s explained, a dumpster fire. She starts to renovate the home and ends up getting close with Lucas after they agreed to a “neighbors with benefits” situation. Those things never work out as one expects.
In summary, I give this a 4 out of 5.
