Publisher's Summary

One plus-size woman who wants to have a child via artificial insemination because her biological clock is ticking. One reclusive billionaire who is more than willing to give her the kid she wants...the natural way. Two people who might very well discover that what they'd wanted at the beginning of their relationship isn't what they'd really needed at all!

Laura

I have everything I've always wanted. A successful career as a plus-size model, a new business that's flourishing, financial security, and amazing friends who I know will always have my back.  

So, everything should be perfect in my world, right? I should be content.

Unfortunately, I'm not. I want to have a child, and my biological clock is ticking away too loudly for my liking. Since every man I'd ever dated was a jerk, I was okay with not having a man in my life. I'd already decided I was better off without one. Problem was, I did need a baby daddy, so my only solution was to find a sperm donor, and I was ready to do exactly that at a fertility clinic...until a very unlikely source, billionaire Mason Lawson offers to knock me up the natural way.  

I mean, really? How can a woman who wants to have a child not consider Mason's offer? The man was every woman's fantasy, including mine. I can't even look at him without wanting to tear his clothes off and find out what's underneath that cool, businesslike, billionaire facade.   

Honestly though, I just don't understand his motives. Why would he want to have an intimate relationship with a plus-size woman like me? Not that I wouldn't love to dip into his "gene pool", but why in the world does he want to be the father of my child?

I wasn't about to accept his offer. There would be way too many complications, but I'm still intrigued by the man who put that option out there in the first place.  

Why did he do it? Somebody like Mason is the man a woman really wants but can never have.

Endearingly infuriating

Mason is seriously the most infuriating of all the men in the billionaire series so far, I think. Laura is so interesting as a character - a plus sized model, she’s beautiful but still has esteem issues because people are ridiculously mean about any model that’s not rail thin. Mason really has no clue how to do a relationship with a woman. He is constantly treating his interactions with Laura like business dealings, and it’s infuriating. But the endearing part about it, is that he’s trying, he just doesn’t actually know any different. After they finally are able to cut through all the crap and admit to their mutual attraction, an extreme event pushes Mason to make a monumentally stupid, and frustratingly annoying decision. Surprisingly, the person to actually call him out on it isn’t who you’d expect, which is a nice change of pace. In the end, there’s a happily ever after that is really perfect for them, and it’s all very satisfying, but this ride was definitely one of the more infuriating ones of the series.

Finally!

Finally, finally, finally! Subborn Mason Lawson has lowered his guard and let someone in his closed off heart - one Laura Hastings. She entered said heart and never left. Heartfelt, warm, sexy, and exciting, Billionaire Unattainable has to be one of my favorite books in this series, and I truly enjoyed listening to it. I cannot wait to see what Ms. Scott has in store for us next!

Loved it!

I have enjoyed this entire series and this one did not disappoint. Mason is a broody alpha billionaire who carries too much on his shoulders to enjoy his life. Laura is an independent woman but with insecurities of her own. I adore that this heroine was a tall and curvy woman, a model, and still struggled with common insecurities they most real women have. Their story was a slow burn between two people too unsure of themselves to admit their feelings for each other. The HEA is satisfying and we are introduced to the next billionaire in the series, Hudson. I generally prefer a dual narration but Elizabeth Powers does an amazing job and I didn’t miss having a male counterpart.

Mason & Laura’s Story About Facing Insecurities!

Neither The Grumpy Tech Mogul Nor The Chatty Plus Size Supermodel Is Entirely Comfortable With Who They Are, But The Connection They Feel Is A Powerful Motivator. They Both Face A Reality Check And Some Healing Before They Can Move Forward Together.


This is the fourteenth book in The Billionaire’s Obsession series. Each book in the series reads perfectly as a standalone. Books one through five are centered around Tampa, Florida. Book six is a bridge between The Sinclairs series and this series, but it also shifts the series to Colorado. The series continues in Colorado with the Colter family, whose five children comprise books seven through eleven. In books nine and ten, the Colter twins marry the Lawson sisters. After, the series continues on in Seattle with the three Lawson brothers. This is Mason Lawson and Laura Hastings’ story.

The Lawson kids, like their friends the Colters, are well-known for their good looks, genius IQ’s, and billionaire status. Their parents were killed about nine years ago in an accident. That tragedy triggered some changes for the family. While they all inherited enough to be independently wealthy, each was committed to work. None wanted to hold onto the family home in Colorado, finding it too emotional, so they all left Colorado. Harper and Danica, the youngest, traveled extensively for work and didn’t have much of a home to speak of. The brothers, however, took the opportunity to move their father’s up-and-coming business, Lawson Technologies, to Seattle – a more appropriate location for their business – where it shot to success. Each brother heads his own division within the company, but they are partners of the entirety. Harper and Danica have recently married the Colter twins and have settled down in Rocky Springs, Colorado.

Blake Colter and Harper Lawson’s story in Billionaire Unknown, book ten, is a tender and emotional story about second chances in love and life after confusion tears them apart for twelve years.

In Billionaire Unveiled, book eleven, Marcus Colter and Danica Lawson finally find love after years of animosity as they crisscrossed repeatedly overseas.

Jett and Ruby are each lost in self doubt when Danica arranges to have Jett rescue Ruby from a human trafficking ring in book twelve, Billionaire Unloved.

Book thirteen, Billionaire Unchallenged, is Carter Lawson and Brynn Davis’s story. The playboy business genius and the supermodel and fashion entrepreneur find much in common and are ready to settle down in a sweet and angsty slow burn about secrets, trust, and guilt.

In this book:

Note that Laura’s POV is given in one chapter in Carter’s book, giving a sneak peak at this beginnings of this story.

Following the prologue that flashes back to Jett and Ruby’s engagement part from the previous book, this book opens one year later, about nine months following Carter and Brynn’s wedding.

Mason Lawson, going on thirty-six, is nothing if not tenacious, which is a close cousin to stubborn. He makes up his mind and goes with it. He is ruthless in business. The most eligible billionaire bachelor and tech business mogul is a devoted workaholic, making little time for anything outside of the office – to include his own siblings. Granted they had all drifted apart following their parents’ death, but they had recently made efforts to reestablish their familial bonds. Mason isn’t having it, though, because he is too committed to remaining emotionally unavailable. Similar to his brother Carter, Mason has a secret that his siblings are unaware of. He hasn’t been able to fully digest the news himself even after all these years. The timing had been wrong at first, and now the idea of sharing the information feels pointless. He is content to keep it to himself and throw himself into Lawson Technologies instead.

Mason has watched all his siblings recently fall prey to love, something that is not in the cards for him. He hadn’t been with a woman since college, in fact, and that was a secret that he had no intention of sharing. His experience with women had not gone well and now he is so out of practice that he hasn’t the first clue about romance. But there was one woman who had caught his eye that he couldn’t get out of his mind. When his brother Carter first saw Brynn from across the room at a fundraiser, it was Brynn’s best friend Laura that had caught Mason’s eye. And when he found her drunk and alone on the balcony at Jett and Brynn’s engagement party, he was shocked at the earful he got about invitro fertilization and biological clocks. But mostly he didn’t want Laura resorting to getting pregnant by a stranger. If he had anything to say about the matter it would be his baby she would carry.

Laura Hastings, going on thirty-five, is a supermodel and fashion entrepreneur. She moved to Seattle two years ago as her modelling career began to slow down. She had given up on trying to remain the coveted size two years ago when she realized the havoc starvation had on her health. She has done plus size modelling gigs in recent years, and still has a few clients. But she and Brynn had eventually used their supermodel status and social media platforms to promote healthier body images for women. She blogs about her own struggles with self-image – because even models are prone to issues with their self-image. Particularly since she grew into her plus size, Laura has had more than her fair share of nasty messages on social media from those stuck on the notion that models must be thin as rails. It inspired her move to Seattle and the company she founded to promote personal style for women of all sizes. Perfect Harmony has expanded from the original boutique to online and now has several investors that have allowed her to leapfrog in the last twelve months. She has a good team in place and can now focus more so on her designs.

But Laura still feels lonely and unfulfilled. She has never had good luck with men. They all use her for her money or her position and do nothing to help with her negative self-image. It has been a couple years since her last boyfriend and she is convinced there is no Prince Charming for her. She had researched using a sperm donor and had almost decided upon using one until her strange run-in with Mason Lawson one year ago. His warning that it was impersonal and her child deserved a father willing to be around had struck her as true, though she would never admit it. She has been quietly considering her options since then, in part because Mason wouldn’t let her forget their conversation. He called religiously every week since that party to ask if she was pregnant. The brief conversations were odd and yet she had grown to accept them. When Brynn suggests that Mason’s calls stem from his attraction to her, Laura can hardly believe the sought after bachelor would be interested in someone like her. Aside from some awkwardness, he is too dreamy to be true.

When Carter eventually pushes Mason to get a life outside of work, the stubborn man reluctantly gives in and asks Laura to dinner. Despite their awkward beginning, Mason and Laura soon find comfort in one another’s company. But both have a past that makes them hesitant to become vulnerable. Neither have had relationship success. When they take things to the next step, there is no in-between for Mason. He is all-in. But as the couple moves forward, their relationship is tested. Both have personal struggles that threaten to tear them apart. Mason stubbornly wants to protect Laura from the outside world. Although he does have business enemies, not all his instincts are entirely sound and he might just push too far. Laura’s childhood and self-image issues leave her with a fear of rejection. But if she cannot open up and become vulnerable, there is no hope for their relationship to flourish. The couple eventually finds their happy ending.

Billionaire Hudson Montgomery of San Diego enters the story adding yet another complication to the couple’s happiness. His presence forces Mason to finally face some of the secrets that have held him hostage for years. Hudson gets his own story in the next book of the series, Billionaire Undercover.

For those that pay attention to detail, there are some discrepancies with the children’s ages from one book to another. According to earlier books, Danica, now thirty-one, is the youngest in the Lawson family. Her sister Harper is thirty-two. Their three older brothers include Mason, Jett, and Carter (oldest to youngest). Then Jett became the youngest and is thirty-two, which does not add up since his younger sister Harper is already thirty-two. Carter comes next in age at thirty-three, and Mason follows at thirty-five.

Mason and Laura’s story is about facing insecurities. Neither the grumpy tech mogul nor the chatty plus size supermodel is entirely comfortable with who they are, but the connection they feel is a powerful motivator. They both face a reality check and some healing before they can move forward together. Their story is well-written. The plot is fairly somewhat complex. Expect a few surprises. The characters are complex and well-developed given the length. The story is written in first person. The POV alternates between Mason and Laura. I rate this book 4.5 stars.


As for the Audio: it is very well-performed and consistent with the book.

I received an audiobook and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A Number of Secrets

I listened to the audio book. I thought the narration was good.

I liked Mason and Laura. The way they came together was humorous and kind of strange at the same time. It was great, listening as Laura penetrated the grumpy Mason's shell, and as Mason helped to boost Laura's self confidence.

I also appreciated that the book revolved around what society calls a "plus-sized" woman. I loved the fact that there was a conversation about embracing ALL body types.

Mason and Laura did have chemistry. Their relationship was a slow roll out until it turned combustible. There were some twists in the book that were interesting. Mason's secret, Hudson's appearance and the reason he appeared, Hudson's secret, and the restaurant incident.

Laura and Mason did end up with their HEA. I honestly thought that Mason would have shared his secret in this book. I guess we will see if the rest of the story unfolds in Hudson's book.

unclean language

Stopped reading your books because of the "f" word. Hoped by now you would have cleaned it up a little. you're a great writer, just have a nasty vocabulary. Just use damn it and you'll have five stars on all your books.

Mason and Laura!

Laura is a plus sized model who is ready to start the next stage of her life and wants a child however with no man in the picture she has decided to do it the clinical way. After a few drinks too many at her best friend’s wedding she confides her plans to Mason never expecting him to be interested let alone to take matters into his own hands.

Mason has focused all his attention on the family business to the detriment of his personal life. He is both intrigued and attracted to Laura and after much thought decides that he is the perfect man for the job.

This is a sweet and sexy story about two strong, independent people who appear confident but underneath have their own self-doubts as well. Seeing their relationship unfold and watching them open their hearts and learn to trust each other only made it that much better.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and thought that the narrators were a perfect fit for the characters.

Fantastic audiobook book

Book 14 of The Billionaire Obsession Series by J.S. Scott.
Mason is the oldest of the Lawson siblings.
Laura is Brynn’s modelling friend and after pre-wedding party a very drunk Laura confesses to mason she wants a baby and is looking into IVF.
Mason calls every week on a Sunday to talk her out of it and on there latest call he offers himself as a option but wants to do it the natural way. Mason is not a big talker but eventually he opens up to Laura and she finds stuff out that even his family doesn’t know.
I absolutely love that the main female character is a plus size model even though I hate the term but her idea to promote a more natural healthy seizes that women can relate to and that the whole family gets involved at some point in book
I absolutely loved this audiobook I tried to pace myself but finished it in a day. The narrator is great, i love that she is very expressive and pulls off all the alpha voice but keeps them individual as well. Can’t wait for more audiobooks become available to listen to.
Can’t get enough of these book by J. S. Scott definitely check them out a lot are available on kindle unlimited or first book free.

Another Great Book by JS Scott

When I first read the books in this series I wondered whether it was feasible for people in them to be so insecure. Then I reviewed some of mine. So of course it was feasible. Well written and Very well Narrated by Elizabeth Powers. Great character development and very Believable story line. Thanks.
