Book Review: The Billionaire's Voice

I took a break from reading this series for a bit but I'm going to keep going because these are really great reads to get into before bed. They are also pretty short so if you're looking for a series but don't want big books, this is where it's at.

The Billionaire's Voice - J.S. Scott

As an extreme-sports mogul, billionaire Micah Sinclair is comfortable taking risks. But nothing—and no one—has ever challenged him like Tessa Sullivan. He’s fascinated by the woman who’s overcome so much, including the loss of her hearing. The petite blonde dynamo, a small-town restaurateur on the Maine coast, is the most courageous person he knows, and he wants her in his bed. Now all he has to do is convince Tessa to explore their desire.

After a lifetime of loss, Tessa’s finally come to terms with her limitations. Or she would, if a certain sexy businessman weren’t pushing her to want more. And to want him. All her remaining senses are clamoring for her to touch, taste, and feel. But her doubts tell her to go slow when their passion gets too hot.

Micah’s determined to prove to Tessa that she can still have everything she’s ever wanted, including his love. But will she listen to her head—or her heart?

First thing's first, this is book 4 in The Sinclairs series but you absolutely can read these in any order, it doesn't matter. It does mention that the next book is going to be Julian and Kristin's story, but if you haven't read the other three you aren't going to know what you missed, it is really solely focused on Micah and Tessa.

With that said, this is maybe my favorite that I've read so far. I say that because while Micah is the alpha guy, he reels it in and doesn't try to dominate Tessa in any way and he's really cognizant of her disability (she's deaf) but he also doesn't treat her like a wilting flower either. I liked Tessa because she knows her disability puts her at a disadvantage, but she IS willing to try new things with some help, and she doesn't get angry when people try to help her, she's open to new ideas.

If I have to critique stuff, I'd have just these:

  • The introduction of her ex Rick is strange. I don't understand what the point of having him come in at all is and I don't know what the point of having him show up at the end? It's an awkward and unnecessary exchange and we'd be better without it. 
  • In every book in this series everything is going good, good, good, something stupid happens because people can't use their words, then there's an awkward make up scene. I just wish it wasn't so predictable and I wish the make up part wasn't so awkward. It wouldn't happen like that in real life at all so it feels weird to read it, basically. 
I know those seem like big things and you're wondering why the heck I'm giving this one 4 stars- but I'm telling you I enjoyed it. I really liked Micah and I really liked that Tessa gets a happy ending and it isn't just Micah, she gets friends, too. It's just a really nice and I enjoyed this one.
