Beauty and the Beastly Billionaire . . . 

Eli Crane is one tough bastard. After an explosion left him injured and honorably discharged from the Marines, all he wants is to be left alone. Yet his brothers insist he take a greater role in the family business. They've hired him ten personal assistants—and Eli sent each one packing as fast as possible. But when beautiful number eleven walks through the door, Eli will do anything to make her stay.

Isabella Sawyer's employment agency can't afford to lose Eli Crane's business. Her plan: to personally take on the role of his PA, and secure her reputation with the wealthy elite in Chicago. But this beauty and her hot billionaire bad boy soon find themselves mixing business with pleasure in the most delicious ways. And passionate, stubborn Isabella won't rest until she tames this wicked beast . . .

When I first stared this book I thought this was not going to be what I expected but it was so much more! I loved the characters, how they connected and the pull between Isabella and Eli.

Eli was a hard ass solely because of the tragedy he faced in the service.  He was injured while on tour and never got over the fact that two of his friends died.  The guilt he carried for the deaths has pulled him into a depression that he can't and doesn't want to get out of.  His life is not of the core but his family business, where he doesn't want to be.

Eli is hard to work with and chooses to be the hard ass that everyone hates so his assistants walk away but when Isabella comes to the "rescue" he has finally met his match.

Isabella is a no nonsense type of girl who will not take crap from anyone and she will fight for what she wants.  The strain on her relationship with her family only makes her stronger and pulls her into Eli's world.

The dynamic of Eli and Isabella is so good.  There is joking, protectiveness and laughter when it needs to be.  The pull between the two of them is undeniable and once they get together, it's explosive.

I loved this story and I can't wait to read the first two books in the series and more books by Jessica Lemmon.
