The Billionaire Playboy by Christina Tetreault

She's spent her life avoiding love

Captain Charlotte “Charlie” O'Brien, a doctor in the United States Navy, returns to her home in North Salem, Massachusetts to visit her family and make an important decision about her future. Mother Nature has other plans when a hurricane strikes, flooding the town and throwing Jake Sherbrooke in Charlie's path. Initially she believes Jake is nothing more than a rich playboy, but quickly, she learns that he is so much more.

The media calls him Prince Charming

Jake Sherbrooke has never been one to follow the path laid out by his parents. That is why he started the Falmouth Foundation, a non-profit disaster relief organization rather than enter politics. When he learns of the destruction in North Salem, he immediately travels there to offer aid and meets Charlie O'Brien. Charlie is unlike any woman he has ever meet and he can not help but be drawn to her.

Soon neither can ignore the incredible chemistry between them. But will his reputation as a billionaire playboy damage their budding romance?


Welcome to today's stop for The Billionaire Playboy by Christina Tetreault.  Christina has been so kind as to offer a $10 Amazon gift card to one random commenter during the tour so follow along for a chance to win!


About the Author:

I wrote my first story with characters similar to those in the Sweet Valley Twins books at the age of 10 on my grandmother's manual typewriter.  As I got older my stories and characters became more mature.  During my freshman year at UMass Dartmouth, I read my first romance novel and fell in love with the genre.  I have been writing romance ever since.

Today I live with my husband, three beautiful daughters and two dogs in Massachusetts.  Whenever I have a free moment you'll find me either reading a romance novel or working on my most current story.

My Thoughts:

I was glad that this was a stand alone book despite being the second in the Sherbrookes of Newport Series.  I haven't read the first one and it was nice to be able to pick this one up and jump right in without worrying that I would be missing something.

The main character is Jake, a world-class playboy - someone who everyone views as a literal playboy.  Charlotte (Charlie), is a strong independent woman who vows that she will never fall in love or enter into a relationship.  Jake proves to be a greater strength than her resolve to stay single and this book really is a cute story of their path towards happiness. 

I liked this story, it was a light read and one that really went quick for me.  It made me want to pick up the other book in the series and see if that one was as good as this one was! 

Looking forward to following Christina's work in the future!

  2. So if you went to Dartmouth, might there be a hockey-related story in your future? :-) (Sorry, NHL lockout has me a little obsessed.) This one sounds good!

  4. Living in coastal NC (and previously living in FL), I appreciate a good hurricane story...although with all of the Super Storm Sandy problems, flooding seems all too real now. If it washed up a billionaire playboy for a few gals, though, it might not seem so bad! One can dream...

      Yes, a few men like Jake washing up wouldn't be a bad thing. In some ways I wish I had release this book at a different time. Obviously I had no idea Sandy would it but still

      Yes you are right. Sometimes you need a break from the heavy hitters.
