Reserved is a spicy contemporary age-gap romance about a perky entrepreneur and the brooding billionaire who always gets what he wants–and he has his sights set on her.

  • Grumpy/sunshine
  • He falls first
  • Insta-love

  • Opposites attract
  • Possessive MMC
  • Guaranteed HEA


In the Bay, Van Costa is synonymous with ruthless. Broody and stoic with a side of tall, dark, and fucking gorgeous, he's a savvy, successful businessman who never loses focus. So imagine my surprise when the indomitable Van Costa relentlessly pursued me after a single meeting, then fell to his knees for me the first chance he got. And he's been doing his damnedest to convince me I'm his ever since. But I have reservations–I've been used before, taken advantage of by someone I thought loved me to my core. How do I know Van won't do the same?


I had built my career with a single-minded focus–for myself, my business partner, and my family. But the day she waltzed into my office with her lunch trolley and a smile that lit the room, she became all I could see. Now, I'm focused on how to prove I'm worthy of a permanent role in her life and in her bed. Camellia Maria Rivera is everything I never knew I needed and definitely don't deserve. But I'm determined to pursue her–without reservation.

Reserved is the second full-length standalone in the South Bay Billionaires series. This story features a sunshine female lead and a grumpy, alphahole billionaire who only melts for her. It's medium angst, high spice, with a guaranteed happily ever after. Recommended for 18+ only.


I received Reserved in return for an honest review from the authors. 

The moment Van see's Cami delivering lunch at his work he knows that she's the one it just took a little convincing to get her to give him a chance. However, over the next few days he wins her over launching them into a whirlwind romance that leaves Cami feeling abandoned when he's forced to head out of town all the sudden right after an encounter with his ex.

I just love Van he's kind of perfect in a older guy who knows what he wants and is willing to give it all up for the right girl. I adore Cami she's just a sweetheart who's working hard on her own business proving she can do it. They have this sweet and adorable connection that is sizzling as they strengthen the connection. I loved that we get to see Parker and LB from the first book as the characters are connected. 

Reserved is a steamy fast paced whirlwind romance that captures the heart as well as the imagination.  I love that I'm in the East Bay area and they went to visit Napa which is just down the highway from me. I absolutely loved the story for Van and Cami it captured my attention right from the start and I ended up devouring the book in just a few short hours. I couldn't put it down without seeing how the story would play out. 

 I loved Arrived so much but this one blew it out of the water. The characters are lovely and the story is just so perfect. I hate to admit it might be my favorite of the two as Cami and Van just stole my heart. I absolutely loved every moment of Reserved it's just a beautifully written story that stole my heart. I love the authors story telling they nailed it again with another fantastic billionaire romance. Highly recommend checking out the series it's one of my favorites. I can't wait for the next book to come out.
