The Counterfeit Billionaire, by Ivy Layne is a 306-page contemporary romance novel and is the tenth book out of a 10-part series (other reviews can be found below). 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.
Spoilers Ahead ***
This book feels sort of meh after the first nine since the big theme was wrapped up in book eight. The intent was supposed to show Chase getting his happy ending as well as how he integrates into the Winters family since he is technically the bastard/castoff.
This book had the same solid writing, but I do wish there was a bit more tension and acceptance being shown between Chase and the Winters kids, especially if you read all of the other nine books. However, I can see that being difficult since the intent is for the books to read more like standalones. Chase and Annabelle were the ones who got together, and I know this sounds terrible, but I almost wish it was a new person. Chase and Annabelle didn’t have the same kind of spark and excitement as the others did. Maybe it’s because it was a Friends-to-Lovers trope, but it just felt tepid compared to the other books. That’s not a bad thing, just not what you may hope for if you’ve read the other nine books.
Overall, still a good read and I’m happy that they got their happily ever after.
In summary, I give this a 3 out of 5.
