This week's quote: Beauty and the Billionaire by Jessica Clare. I’m really digging this one as you can see by last week’s Throwback Thursday Review AND Favorite Character Friday. Just so we’re clear though, I don’t have a stash of penis/cock quotes but this one is just too good not to share and it really made me snort just picturing this scene in my head. It takes place just after Gretchen the heroine “met” the hero Hunter for the first time in his mansion and she saw him completely naked and he got angry thinking she was shocked at his scarred face instead of you know, oogling the goods. She goes looking for him and finds him outside tending some plants so she goes out to apologize and…
His face darkened into a scowl, the scars at the corner of his mouth twisting his entire face into an ugly grimace. He turned away. “I have nothing to say to you.”

Real-estate tycoon Hunter Buchanan has a dark past that’s left him scarred and living as a recluse on his family’s palatial estate. Hunter is ready to give up on love—until he spots an enigmatic red-haired beauty and comes up with an elaborate scheme to meet her.
Gretchen Petty is in need of a paycheck—and a change. So when a job opportunity in an upstate New York mansion pops up, she accepts. And while she can overlook the oddities of her new job, she can’t ignore her new boss’s delectable body—or his barely leashed temper.
Hunter’s afraid his plan might be unraveling before it’s truly begun, but Gretchen is about to show him that life can be full of surprises…
