This is the first novel by J.S. Scott that I've listened to and it was ok but very predictable. .The story centered on an injured police detective returning to his home town to recover physically from his wounds and mentally from the loss of his long time partner and friend. What he finds as he recovers is the love of his life.Even if he wasn't looking, Sarah, love at first sight, shows up as his new Dr.
At this point the book took a turn as his possessive nature kicked in, he had a constant erection and followed her around to the point of being a stalker. It helped to be a billionaire in this situation as his home built by his other billionaire brothers and situated in prime real estate on the shores of Maine helped to lure in the Sarah. Sarah doesn't come without issues of her own and Dante is hot on the trail of her real to life stalker. The book has its funny moments in the form of snoopy elderly ladies who are into sixth sense and snooping for real news or gossip, whichever comes first.
The love scenes are somewhat crude in description and the listener needs to make exceptions to the street vernacular used, some that takes more away than add to the story and seem to be incongruous to the fact that both adults and are well educated intelligent people. I love some good sex scenes but there were so many in this book it became boring.
I can't help but compare this series to The Sullivan series by Bella Andre. Each book follows the stories of a wealthy family and their trials and tribulations on finding their life partners. This is what made the book so predictable it was like the author followed a written scrip for this type of book.
Elizabeth Powers was very good with the delivery of the story

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The potential for a good plot was there for this book, but character development and storyline were so underdeveloped that it was just annoying.

WOW!! I adored NO ORDINARY BILLIONAIRE and there is certainly nothing ordinary about Dante Sinclair! Despite his billionaire status, he is a homicide detective that is UBER alpha and all sorts of deliciousness packaged in an Adonis body! He is fiercely protective, loyal, and a dirty talker! Swoooon! And Sarah Baxter is not your typical heroine - she is crazy smart, level headed, and totally inexperienced in matters of the heart! I loved that Dante (like all of J.S. Scott's heroes) wanted Sarah as soon as he met her and didn't give up in his pursuit of her. As with all of Ms. Scott's books, the characters do not have any unnecessary dramas and misunderstandings. The narrative was AMAZING; the story had me captivated with an interesting side story to the main romance; and the banter between all the characters was witty. Without giving too much away, this book is the PERFECT blend of angst, drama, and of course scorching sexy times!!!!!! Ms. Scott's books never disappoint and left me with a happy, lovesick grin and goosebumps all over! 5+ EXTRAORDINARY STARS!!!!
