    1. 4 stars!This book is the gay 50 Shades. Except I actually liked it. And I actually liked the characters. And there were no inner goddesses. This was a book I requested on a whim, I love MM and am always curious to read more. I'm not one for billionaire romances, or BDSM but for some reason this book called to me. How to Bang A Billionaire is about Arden, an Oxford student soon to graduate with a literature degree. He volunteers for an alumni fundraiser and ends up talking on the phone to billion [...]


    2. 4.5 Stars!I'm not ashamed to admit I liked the 50 Shades books the time. Would I like them now? Probably not. My tastes have changed considerably since my time with Anna and Christian. But I like a good billionaire book as much as the next persond that fact that it's an MM book, well even better. I quite liked both Caspian and Arden. A lot. They had some great banter. I just wish we also got Caspian's POV. That little niggle aside, I can't complain much about this one at all. Perhaps a little mo [...]


    3. 4.5 starsI think what the author did here was fantastic. I loved this. I think though that this book is going to be one of those that divides readers. You're either going to love this or you're going to hate it. This is a m/m reimaging of Fifty Shades of Gray. The overall plotline is the same. Twenty year old college student meets emotionally detached billionaire and they enter into a contract type of relationship. Arden is the narrator for the story and he's charming and funny and self-deprecat [...]


    4. **** 3.5 ****See this pic??I'm the one in the middle.Got mixed feelings here. I liked Arden in the same proportions as I disliked Caspian Hart. Arden(20) is a down-to-earth person. He's happy, passionate and sassy. A free spirit, honest, generous and possesses a trait that I love: he has no filter. The "no filter" makes him a really singular and special character because you never know what will come out of his mouth next. Capian Hart is complicated. I'll give you him at his best:"I like to avoi [...]


    5. The second time it was again awesomeness !!5++ I don't know how to express thisis awesomeness From the first sentence I was totally in and addicted. These are the sentences I crave for.every one. read: e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e was captivating as hellevery line I absorbed and consumed like it was the best chocolate on earth.For me it was an instant memorable read experience. I'm not exaggerating, it really felt this way was written in the best way possibleIt was funny so fucking funny I laughed out loud, [...]


    6. DNF @ 67%ARGHHHHHHHHHIt's only so much you can take! Goodness, I really tried. I tried Alisa, oh pudding pop I tried. LOL.I literally want to take a bat to ARDEN'S head and shut him the hell up. It was TOO MUCH internal monologuing. I liked the premise of the story and the reversal of the FSOG saga, but it was too much for me. Honestly, I read up to 67% and put up with alot. I couldn't deal with a few sentences of dialogue between Caspian & Arden, and then 5 long pages of internal yammering [...]


    7. I really didn't know what to expect when I started reading this book. I'd seen a few reviews comparing it to Fifty Shades of Grey, which made me nervous.But I had no need to worry. Alexis Hall delivers once again - complex and interesting characters, some comedy, hot sex, and a sweet romance.I immediately fell for Arden. He's the cute funny twink who has a habit of getting into trouble. He charmed the socks off me.Caspian is, to put it bluntly, a dick. He's cold and aloof for the vast majority o [...]


    8. Review originally posted at Sinfully.3.5 starsThis is one of those books that’s going to have a distinct divide between loved it and hated it. Alexis Hall’s take on the broody, kinky, emotionally stunted billionaire-dom who is suddenly taken with the awkward college student, starts off seeming like a parody of Fifty Shades of Grey. The framework is there, with striking similarities to start, but after the first few chapters the parody feel was gone. It is still clearly a play on the familiar [...]


    9. re-read 11/14.I wasn't so rushed reading this a second time & I enjoyed every bit of it all over again. I love Arden's sense of humor and it's so easy to see why Caspian falls so hard for him. He's awesome. ____________________________________________________Oh I never wanted this to end. So much still to learn about Caspian Hart!!!!!Random review tangent:I hesitate to link E. L. James with Alexis Hall, but I'm just going to go ahead and do it. As I read this story I kept thinking it reminde [...]


    10. 4.5 starsA drop dead gorgeous billionaire who is a repressed Dom and after the whole damn book we still don't know anything about him beside being a repressed Dom? Oh yeah, sounds pretty familiar and pretty dark. But since this book had such a cheeky and blunt title call 'How To Bang a Billionaire', the little twist come in the form of wannabe submissive Arden St. Ives.Arden is a English literature student volunteering to make cold calls to successful alumni hoping to get some generous donation. [...]


    11. DNF at 60%I wanted to love this book so much. Based on the description, there was every indication that I was going to. But, once I got into it, I realized that there was one big thing that was wrong. Caspian Hart is the biggest asshole "hero" I've ever read in any book. Ever.I'm okay with the hero running hot and cold for a while. It gives the hero/ine a chance to prove that what they could have together is worth wading through all the bad stuff. But Caspian just runs cold all the time. There i [...]


    12. I'm still not sure if this book is supposed to be taken seriously or if it's supposed to be judged and laughed at.I've read other books from Alexis Hall so I know she is a good writer, I was utterly confused by this book which is basically the MM adaptation of 50 shades of grey.This is the story of a quirky, happy, confused about his future, oxford student Arden and the disturbed, closed off but with a huge heart billionare Caspian. First I need to clarify that the book is not a carbon copy of 5 [...]



    13. This is the story of funny but flailing Oxford student, Arden St. Ives, and the enigmatic billionaire he falls in love withbut will closed off Caspian Hart be able to return Arden's love? With some (I think) tongue in cheek nods to Fifty Shades of Grey, although thankfully much better written, this has plenty of laughs, mostly at Arden's expense, without becoming silly about it. While I found it funny, certainly witty, and I appreciated even though Arden was head over heels with Caspian he didn' [...]


    14. The most painful thing about Caspian Hart wasn't desiring him; it was liking him.Which is basically what my experience with this book was. Except I neither desired nor liked it. But it was painful because I have just discovered this author and he has made me fall in love with his writing and his characters only to follow it up with this.Part of me really hopes this whole series is like a big fuck you to FIFTY SHADES OF GREY in the sense that it's a polite but gently mocking homage done in a gay [...]


    15. Reviewed for Just Love4.5 starsI’m sure I wasn’t the only one who was intrigued when it was announced that Alexis Hall had decided to tackle the most overused, overdone, and arguably, the most popular trope in romance – the bildom.I mean, this is the person that made us believe that a successful doctor on the verge of 40 would gladly relinquish control of his body and his heart to a 19 year old short-order cook with problem skin in the award-winning For Real. He also the same author who ma [...]


    16. Yowza baby! Billionaire romance with the quirky college kid? Alexis Hall be like:Yes, * cough *50 shades satire *cough*, this was EVERYTHING you want in a tortured-soul-billionaire-meets-fresh-faced-college-kid-with-kinky-inclinations romance.First off, Arden. Dear me, that kid is in my bones now. I absolutely adored him. There’s something to be said about the bravery required in being yourself, especially when that might make you feel a little like an outsider. Arden has such a unique voice a [...]


    17. SighDNF @ (view spoiler)[ the giving of the grant(hide spoiler)]Here's the thing, while the author has lovely prose, because they do, just take Glitterland or Waiting for the Flood which are some of my all time favourite reads, and while this book had lovely prose. it just didn't work for me. Truth be told I feel very hit or miss with this author and TBH I feel that way with a lot of writers. Readers are not going to love everything and that is just a fact. So while I probably did not give this [...]


    18. Updated for audiobook review Read Jay’s audio review in its entirety here.A Joyfully Jay review. 4.75 starsHow to Bang a Billionaire is the first book in Alexis Hall’s new Arden St. Ives series and I absolutely loved it. This one pretty much had me from “billionaire dom” to be honest. Interestingly, the dom/sub side of things doesn’t play prominently here in this first story. In fact, Caspian quite clearly is trying to keep that side of him at bay. Yet I was captivated nonetheless with [...]


    19. I'm an enormous fan of Alexis Hall. I adore everything he has ever written and this book is no different. I think Ardy might be my favorite AJH character ever, and that's saying a lot. He is so sort of young and unsure in such a believable way, but also so very willing to accept himself and the people around him. He's open and happy and just wonderful. Caspian really wars with his desires and Arden is basically like, umm why tho. It's just great. I can't wait to see the ways in which Caspian and [...]


    20. Full review on allaboutromance/book-revieRating A-This review of How to Bang a Billionaire was difficult to write in terms of approach. Has Alexis Hall written an enjoyable, entertaining novel? Of course, he has. Has he written a pastiche of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey? I will leave that for you to decide when you have read this, the first in his Arden St. Ives trilogy. I think my response is clear in my review.Do I approach this as a Romantic Comedy with elements of BDSM? There are certa [...]


    21. I think the core of the story was there for me - I just found it hard to deal with the constant analogies and references. It kept pulling me out of the story for the sheer volume of things that were compared to, referenced against, or kind of pithily joked about- it makes for a complicated read and I found it mentally exhausting instead of exhilarating. Sometimes I just wanted things to be. Instead to be like - if that makes any sense.Arden's internal (OMG SAVE ME from a reader POV) struggle dro [...]


    22. UPDATE - 2018.01.17 - So I just heard a little bird chirp about an Audio version for this book! YEAH ME! But then, the little bird also told me who the narrator is I might be in one of my moods, but I’m not impressed about it at all.Why would you get someone who sounds 60 and up to read a book where your MC’s are both UNDER 30???? I’m sorry if I’m being a B+*&% here people but really?? What exactly is the fascination with this narrator about?Yes, he reads really well but again! He ha [...]


    23. Of course Alexis could pull off writing a romance featuring a super gorgeous, twenty-something billionaire and make it subversive. As you've likely heard, this is somewhat of a re-imagining of Fifty Shades of Gray, but with the things that put many people off of that book fixed. Just about every issue or character trait that made me uncomfortable in FSoG, AJH takes and does the opposite.Arden may be the floundering, awkward, subby guy who is being pursued, but he's no blushing virgin. He knows h [...]


    24. 2.5 StarsNo, not my favorite from Alexis, but you can see why as my review posted on Just Love yesterday. Check it out


    25. I'm drawn to Alexis Hall's writing for reasons I don't understand. I haven't absolutely loved anything I've read from the author, but I can never resist the name when I see it on a book. This was more of the same - your standard billionaire 'I don't have time for a relationship but want convenient sex' book. (Except that I liked it a smidge more.) Nothing made it really stand out, but it was a decent read.


    26. I'm quite proud of the fact that I know nothing, nada, zilch about Fifty Shades of Grey, books or films to see comments in other reviews about slight similarities between this story, by one of my favourite authors, and the poorly written load of garbage by Ms James, was just a little disconcerting and slightly worrying to me. Maybe some of what goes on in this story does mirror things in FSoG [I wouldn't know], but as Alexis always produces superior writing and he IS the reason I have a 'Brillia [...]


    27. MAJOR Spoiler: *Don't read review if you have not read the book*until about 80% of this book I was loving it and ready to give it 5 stars despite never ending inner dialogue (skipped some). I thought the story was heading some where interesting and was thinking we might finally understand more about Caspian and his reasons for treating Arden so poorly. Perhaps I was in denial about this(book is entertaining)but suddenly I realised towards the end that this is just 50 shades of grey and Caspian w [...]


    28. MOAR!It might be just me that I am seeing things that are not there but this book is not just what it is on the surface. Yes it is still a billionaire romance story with all the usual tropes. But, there is also thisThen my phone rang. I scrabbled for it and answered without even checking the caller ID.“Yeah?”“Arden, it’s—”I sat up so fast I practically hit my head on the shelf over my bed. “Caspian.” God, I’d never expected…why was he…“How did you get this number?”“I [...]


    29. Okay, so, it’s official (if there was ever any doubt): I am crazy in love with this book! It’s just delightful: Funny (hilarious, even), adorable, moving, and very, very sexy. All of it beautifully written, of course, and shot through with that emblematic poignancy that is, more than anything else, this author’s brand. His, um, Hallmark, you might say ;) And featuring a cast of intriguing and appealing characters, notably one of the most lovable protagonists you’re ever likely to meet on [...]
