Publisher's Summary

Hear Jett and Ruby's story to see if two wary hearts can find out where they belong in Billionaire Unloved, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today best-selling series from J. S. Scott!

Ruby:

My name is Ruby Kent, and I'm homeless, a virgin, and terrified when I'm kidnapped by human traffickers and put up for sale on the auction block. I'm for sale to the highest bidder, and I have no idea what my future will be, but I know it's not going to be good.

I'm waiting for a chance to escape, and that opportunity finally comes after I'm bought and paid for.

Unfortunately, I have no idea that Jett Lawson has been sent to rescue me, not hurt me, and even after we're both injured during my desperate attempt to run away, he still wants to take care of me.

Problem is, I have no idea how to trust anyone, or let anybody help me. I've always been alone. It's safer that way.

Jett Lawson is a mystery to me, an enigma that just gets more complicated with every nice thing he does for me.

Is it possible for a woman like me to find happiness with a billionaire?

Probably not, but the more I get to know Jett, the harder is is to resist the lure of having a safe place to be, and a man like no other.

Jett is scarred just like me, but his wounds are all on the outside.

Mine are carved all over my soul.

Can two wounded people help each other heal, or will our profound differences tear us apart?

Billionaire Unloved

This series just keeps getting better and better! We now meet Jett and Ruby. Actually we met them in the previous book when Jett saved her from the auction block. Now we really get to know them and they are both tortured souls that find healing with each other. I found it refreshing that it did not happen overnight, they had to work for it and when they finally come out on the other end it it spectacular. So, so good!

Loved Jett and Ruby!

I always know what I am going to get from a book by J.S. Scott - a well-written, steamy, heartfelt story. Both with physical and emotional scars, Jett and Ruby are two characters simply meant for each other. I enjoyed every minute listening to Billionaire Unloved. Download this audiobook. I sincerely believe you will love it and all of the other books in the series, as well.

Jett & Ruby Are Lost But Heal One Another!

Jett & Ruby Are Each Lost In Self-Doubt When Danica Brings Them Together. Their Story Is One Of Healing The Emotional Wounds That Plague Them Both.


This is the twelfth 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. Beginning here, the series continues on with the three Lawson brothers. This is Jett Lawson and Ruby Kent’s story. Jett is Marcus Colter’s best friend, and his story is hinted at in book ten, Marcus’s story. Ruby is introduced there as well as Danica befriends and tries to save her.

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 eight 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.

In this book:

This book opens up roughly the same time that Marcus and Danica’s story takes place in Billionaire Unveiled. Danica had called her brother Jett down to Miami to assist with saving her new friend Ruby from human trafficking. Both stories take place one year after Blake and Harper’s reunion.

Jett Lawson, thirty-one, uses his genius to hack into systems. After studying business and cybersecurity in college, he and his brothers started up Lawson Technologies, which is now an international tech giant. Jett was broken two years ago. Two years of surgery and rehab have done much to bring him back, but his body will never be the same. The scars run the length of his body, though his face was largely spared. He walks with a limp – his mangled leg will forever be a problem for him. But it wasn’t only his body that took a hit when his PRO mission went awry. PRO is now retired, but even so Jett’s rescue days are over. The helicopter crash also bore an emotional price when Jett’s fiancée promptly dumped him as she first visited him in his hospital bed. Apparently not even his money was enough incentive for Lisette to marry someone so disfigured. A workaholic, Jett suddenly found himself with too much time on his hands to avoid reflecting on his choices. And although he is happy Lisette is gone, his self-worth nevertheless has taken a beating. He has promised himself that if a woman should come along that doesn’t judge him for his looks, he will ask her to marry him.

Ruby Kent, twenty-two, was at the wrong place at the wrong time. After six years of living on the streets, she had finally been unable to avoid trouble. She found herself mixed up in human trafficking and being sold to the highest bidder. Her new friend Danica had promised she would send help, and when Jett comes to her rescue it is just too good to be true. That someone as unattractive as her might capture the attention of such a handsome and intelligent man is the stuff of fairy tales. She finds herself starring in her own Cinderella story of rags to riches when Jett showers her with kindness and gifts. But Ruby doesn’t know how to accept help, and definitely doesn’t feel she deserves it. She was orphaned at sixteen and hasn’t’ felt compassion since. Jett’s kindness draws her to him, and although he seems to feel the same, she knows someone like her - homeless and penniless – cannot possibly hold his interest for long.

Jett and Ruby are each lost in self-doubt when Danica brings them together. Their story is one of healing the emotional wounds that plague them both. They each become powerful advocates for the other, and together they find strength. Though the story begins rather dark, it quickly turns into a sweet and patient romance. Kent has it all – money, looks, intelligence – add knight in shining armor to the ticket and he is the perfect hero. His injuries lend him character and emotional depth. Ruby is a surprising mix of innocence, humility, and boldly outspoken. The couple earns their happy ending. Carter’s story follows, and he is introduced here as an abrasive but misunderstood playboy.

For those that pay attention to detail, there are some discrepancies with the childrens’ ages from one book to another. According to earlier books, Danica, thirty, is the youngest in the Lawson family. Her sister Harper is thirty-one. Their three older brothers include Mason, Jett, and Carter (oldest to youngest). In this book Jett is the youngest brother and turned thirty-one the month before the opening, which does not add up since his younger sister Harper is already thirty-one.

Jett and Ruby’s slow burn is a feel-good romance. Their story is well-written. The plot is fairly simple. The characters are well-developed given the length. The story is written in third person. The POV alternates between Jett and Ruby. 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.

Jett and Ruby

A tragic beginning but with a happy ending. Both Jett and Ruby had life changing events that set their lives on different paths, crossing at a crucial time. It's actually a very sweet story of how two peopler help to heal each other and fall in love at the same time.

Most of the author's books are narrated either in part or entirely by the same narrator, Elizabeth Powers, who does the a great job of bringing these stories to life - including this one.

Jett and Ruby Were Survivors

I would give this book 3.5 stars. I liked Jeff and Ruby's story because I liked both characters for one thing. I liked the way they helped each other heal. I liked the way they supported one another. I liked the storyline about Jett reconciling with his siblings. The narration was ok.

What I thought was interesting about this book, was that the story started out in a completely different fashion from the rest of the book. The drama with Jett's hospital situation, that immediately morphed into Ruby's situation, then changed into a much less intense, more romantic situation through the rest of the book.

I was honestly expecting more of a romantic suspense based on the beginning of the book. It was almost like getting two books in one.

I was thrilled to hear Jett and Ruby's story.
Ruby is a amazing woman and her story was touching. A real show of human survival and strength. I loved how Jett and Ruby healed each other with their mutual love and respect.
They are a lovely couple.
