Since falling for conman Gio's lines, Jane Connolly's world has been turned upside down. Now determined not to return home until she's proved herself, she's living out of her car and trying to find a job. Except that Gio won't let her go and when Iain Pryce finds her her car has been ruined. Iain gave up MMA fighting 13 years ago and walled himself off from his emotions and from caring, except that there is something about Jane that messes with his calm. If only he can shake it.

Nadia Lee never fails to provide engaging characters and a great story, and The Billionaire's Inconvenient Obsession definitely doesn't fail to deliver! Despite the series being about the rich (and somewhat famous) Pryce family, it is clear early on in the book that money isn't really an issue for the Pryce men, from comments both Mark (from the previous book) and Iain made it wasn't about money for them.

Jane was a really strong female character. All of the women in Lee's novels are strong in their own way, but Jane is determined in a way that puts the rest of them to shame. She was just a normal woman and that meant that she was determined to make her own way. I really liked how there wasn't that much focus on how she looked, more on how she felt and how beautiful she was to Iain more than anything else.

Relationship wise, Iain and Jane's relationship was one that progressed naturally. There was no big love at first sight moment (though there was intrigue and lust at first sight!) rather it was a slow slide for them both, and though they may have realise that they were falling for one another it took a while for them to actually admit it.

The Billionaire's Inconvenient Obsession has me intrigued on several of the secondary characters as well. Because of the way in which Lee has written her two series, The Pryce Family and Billionaires in Love, a lot of the characters had been introduced before, and several of the secondary characters in The Billionaire's Inconvenient Obsession had been heros/heroines of their own books (Mark, Hilary and Brooke, as well as several mentioned characters such as Amandine and Gavin). Vanessa particularly has my attention, but Dane also seems intrigueing!

My only regret with this book is that I waited so long to actually read it...I kind of feel a bit like telling myself off for that one, but Lee's books are enjoyable, they are a great set of books!
