Review: The Billionaire’s Touch by JS Scott

Reviewed by Shelly

Evan Sinclair is my favorite Sinclair brother. He’s the eldest and he takes his responsibilities as head of the Sinclair family very seriously. He’s uptight. He’s got a thing for neatness. He doesn’t own a pair of jeans. He doesn’t eat junk food. Yet, he’s wonderfully imperfect in many ways and not anywhere being ready for a most massive takedown.

Miranda ‘Randi’ Taylor is not my favorite heroine in this series; that’s reserved for Sara from book 1, but she’s an excellent foil for uptight Evan. She’s a local school teacher who’s friends with the ladies from the previous books so she’s been mentioned before. If you didn’t read the prior book(s) I don’t think you’re missing anything because there’s not much interaction to get lost in.

During a random email exchange about funding for the local Community Center in Amesport between ‘S’ and ‘R’ a rocky conversation eventually evolves into a steady friendship. There’s a bit of a secret identity thing with the email but it doesn’t last long thankfully. However, I will say that Evan not telling Randi about know who she is rang false. It’s a nonsense plot point that made for a silly argument.

Evan had much more going in his personal life that could have been expanded on but wasn’t. There’s a pretty heavy topic that I thought was solved way too easily.

The chemistry between Randi and Evan was sweet and the sexy times were cute, but a lot of it felt forced and yep, you guessed it – repetitive.

I must say that I enjoyed the growing friendships he has with his brothers and sister. The back and forth ribbing between all of them was fun to read. I especially enjoyed his budding friendship with Jared. Payback can be a bit rough between siblings.

What I didn’t like about this one is the same thing I find tedious and repetitive in the previous 2 books I’ve read. Somehow, someway the heroine ends up having to stay with the hero for a short time and that’s when the first sexy time happens. This has happened in every book I’ve read in this series. So, yes this leads me back to my theory that there’s an outline somewhere and this is a plug and play.

If you’ve read any of the prior books in the series it’s the same plot with the same outcome. Just insert different names. If you’ve not read any of the books in the series, you might try one, but don’t expect too much originality.

Happy reading folks!
