Arrogant Playboy

Book: Arrogant Playboy
Series: Arrogant #3
Author: Winter Renshaw

PLAYBOY. Noun. A moneyed man who spends his time enjoying himself, especially one who acts irresponsibly or is sexually promiscuous. Synonyms: ladies man, philanderer, womanizer. See Also: Beckham King.

BECKHAM KING. Noun. Synonyms: None.

Vanity wrapped in arrogance and tied with a wicked-intentioned bow.
Obnoxiously attractive.
Wildly talented in the sack.
Everything a girl could want in a one-night stand.

Don’t ask him to commit.
Don’t expect a phone call.
You only get one night.

And God forbid you’re the one girl deemed worthy of a reprise…
Because you won’t stand a chance.
When an arrogant playboy’s mind is set, there’s abso-f*cking-lutely no changing it. -Goodreads

Review: I didn't realize this was the third book in a series and I wish I read the others first. While this book follows new main characters, Beckham's background would have been more fleshed out (I'm assuming) in the previous installments. There is a lot going on in this book-the main character was raised in a cult, kicked out at as a young teenager, taken in by some random man (along with his brother) and then...somehow becomes a billionaire. I couldn't figure out the jump from cult to billionaire with no real explanation. He has no education and didn't appear super intellectual, street smart or hard working, so I would have loved to know how he went from point A to point B.There is also a crazy ex-fiance, a crazy ex-girlfriend and paternity issues-and this is all just related to Beckham. The main female character, Odessa, has her own issues with a fiance who wants to 'take a break' after he becomes semi-famous (imagine a male Rachel Ray).

Overall-cute read. There is a lot happening in this book and I think it could have been much longer with the story lines played out. Looks like his brother has a book and I'll definitely be checking it out. 

Grade: 3/5
