How to Kiss a Billionaire by Cami Checketts


Miriam Salisbury escapes to Oregon to avoid a boyfriend who won't take no for an answer, killing her beloved cat to prove it. When her father sends Clay Browning to protect her, she's certain he's lost his mind. As far as she's concerned Clay's experience is limited to posing for the camera, charming women, and making fun of her. He's been teasing her since they were children and she's never gotten over the way he threw crawdads at her at church picnics.

Clay retired from the military and entered the world of private security. When he gets the call to protect Miriam he's excited to be around his lifelong crush. As expected, he teases her nonstop and the only thing he takes seriously is her security. He knows she'd never give him a chance and he can't help but give her a hard time.

After Miriam is dumped in the freezing ocean on a crabbing expedition and Clay saves her from drowning and freezing to death, she takes a second look at her hired gun. But opening up to him is more terrifying than facing her stalker.

As events escalate to a frenzied climax, Miriam and Clay must put aside past grudges in the hope of finding a lasting love for their future.

My Review: 4 Stars

Miriam has finally decided to break it off with her on again off again boyfriend of several years. But when the notes start coming and her beloved cat is murdered, she starts fearing for her loved ones. If he's willing to kill her cat, what else is he capable of? She has no choice but to run away and hope that he'll slip up, get caught and finally be brought to justice. Until then, she will just have to live in fear and pray that he doesn't find her.  

Clay has been in love with Miriam since he was 12 years old. When her father calls him to let him know that she is missing and he MUST find her, Clay drops everything to locate her. He's had a hard time over the years reconciling that she's the only woman who has never wanted him. But as much as he's tried to get over her, he just can't. There's just something about Miriam. He will always love her and will always want to protect her. 

Clay has tracked Miriam to the town of Coos Bay, Oregon. When he knocks on the door and she doesn't answer, Clay takes it upon himself to break in... freaking the crap out of Miriam! And some things will never change. From the first moment they see each other in the cabin, Clay teases her relentlessly and Miriam is still as feisty and sassy as ever. 

The more time they spend together, the more they realize their old feelings have never really gone away. But both of them have insecurities about things that have happened in the past. Will the old fears and past hurts stop them from moving forward? Or can they finally put the past behind them and start fresh? Are they meant to be alone for the rest of their lives? Or will they finally be able to get their happily ever after?

I am loving reading all these swoony Christmas books! They are all so much fun! I really enjoyed Miriam and Clay! They were so much fun! Between the bantering back and forth and those swoony kisses it turned my quiet Saturday into a fun getaway! 

I can always count on Ms. Checketts to give me a break from reality! All it takes is for me to start reading one of her books and the world just disappears. 

And of course we just can't forget my casting! What do you think?
