    2. 2.5 stars.I was excited to read this book because the blurb sounded really interesting and the unusual story had me intrigued but it turned out to be just an okay read for me I expected .I liked the premise of the story involving a hotter than hell well known billionaire architect loosing his eyesight and in need of a fake girlfriend for four days to hide a life changing secret But this was a slow burner start for me, I had a bit of a hard time getting into the story Mostly because I had so many [...]

    3. High hopes, meeting realityThe blurb got me believing that I would read a new twist on rich assholes alphas Finally, one who couldn t win a marathon and make money and tango at the same time, while also doing back flips and looking sexy as fuck with a well placed sweat drop enhancing his 6packs at the background It really tried to be different but ended up uncomfortable.Heroine was funny at first, then got emotional and lashed out as expected from the hormonal female population Seriously though, [...]

    5. Hawthorne wrote the BEST heroine THE BEST I fell off my chair laughing during the interview scene Inez was no pushover and was a perfect match for Sven, his Royal Alphaness That girl was the right amount of cray cray mixed with wit and smarts I loved this book but the ending could have been better which brought my rating down to 4 stars otherwise, a brilliant read.

    6. Audible review May 2017I did a reread through audible This is 2 years after I read the book for the first time The narrator did a very good job One of my biggest complaints with narrators is when a female narrator can t do the male impressions It s very distracting if they can t read the males part successfully and I did not have that issue with this narrator In fact she did a good job with all the different character I could easily tell when she was reading another character As for the story, I [...]

Let me just start off by saying, I loved this story This author is new to me with four other titles under her belt at this time I loved the fact that even from the first page I was delighted with the story and the fine character development.It takes a special story to keep me up late into the wee hours and this book was one that captured my attention completely The unique storyline, dry wit with a touch of sarcasm and the author s overall ability to tell a story beautifully had me all in I know [...]

    13. whistles Where to begin, where to begin This was going to be a 4 star book around 50% and then it gradually went to 3.75, then down to a 3.5 rating, which is always disappointing when you enjoy the start of something but it loses it way for you It started out interesting, the premise was something I absolutely knew i d love as long as the execution was good, it just caught my eye as I was surfing NetGalley and I knew I had to request it Like I mentioned, the beginning was good, fast paced, had s [...]

    14. If there is one trope I love in romance, it is the love hate relationship stories I absolutely adore them There is something about the fiery passion, the tension and the ultimate connection between the hero and heroine that is a pure weakness for me Closer was the perfect example I loved Sven and Inez and began to root for them right away Their story was magical Closer was so much than the typical Billionaire or pretend girlfriend story you find nowadays It had heart, passion, enthralling chara [...]

    16. Closer is the first book I ve read by Aria Hawthorne, so I m completely ignorant to her other novels In her bio it says that Closer is her NEWEST erotic romance novel To me, that insinuates that she s written other erotic romance novels, right Well, here s my thing I didn t think that this was an erotic romance novel Sure, that could be because I ve read so many romance novels lately that I ve turned into a giant perv and nothing shocks me any It all boils down to this one question How exactly d [...]

    17. I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED this book right from the start The writing expertly carried me along and the characters were so enjoyably contemporary even though Sven, famous blonde, darling Dutch architect, often needs some slang translations so endearing Sven also needed someone that was than just arm candy to get him through the scheduled nightly gala events highlighting his world renowned success in designing a famous Chicago building, The Spire He was losing his eyesight and his dignity He hired Ine [...]

    18. Hmm, I just don t think I care for the whole billionaire romance Everyone is so awful and pompous and catty and gross Sven, I had compassion for because he realized how big of an A hole he was and he fell for Inez so quickly, they fell for each other so quickly but it was believable.What I didn t and don t like, and I have hundreds of reviews that rant about this very thing, is when the bad guys get away with being horrible people Sven s brother and the other dude and his ex, seriously, I wanted [...]

    29. I really enjoyed this book At first, I thought it was going to be the cliche book where rich man hires a woman to pose as his girlfriend for some reason, and then they fall in love that I have read before, and this is the basic storyline for this book, but there is also so much Aria Hawthorne has taken that basic storyline, and produced a well written, beautiful, exciting, hot romance Sven is the hot, sexy billionaire architect that is loosing his sight, and Inez is a young, single mother that [...]
