Book Review: Gabe by Leigh James

Gabe by Leigh James

Silicon Valley Billionaires (Book 2)

Jack’s House Publishing, LLC (May 9, 2017)

Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense


His Woman. His Family. His Company. When the going gets tough, the tough get Alpha.

Silicon Valley billionaire CEO Gabriel Betts has finally found the happiness he’s been searching for—in gorgeous, brilliant fellow billionaire Lauren Taylor, the so-called reigning queen of the biotech industry. But when Chinese healthcare mogul Li Na Zhao kidnaps Lauren’s sister in a high-stakes game of corporate espionage, the world they’ve worked so hard to protect comes crashing down. Li Na agrees to trade Hannah for Lauren’s Paragon Laboratories and her help—onsite and in person. In an attempt to keep Lauren safe, Gabe calls in his security-industry professional brothers to help get Hannah back. But when the rescue effort stumbles, Gabe must pick up the pieces to protect the woman he loves…before she makes the ultimate sacrifice.



They’re smart, sexy, fun, and billionaires.

Love that the female lead, Lauren, is a young, successful, brilliant scientist who runs her own biotech company. Gabe is perfect as her hero; he’s also a brilliant billionaire and CEO of his own technology company. He’s strong, stubborn, sexy, and protective.  Gabe’s brothers play a big part in this story as well as Lauren’s feisty sister, who has her own book (Hannah-out now) which I can’t wait to read. Gabe’s and Lauren’s steamy, sexy romance is perfectly blended into this suspenseful novel. Gabe is a fast paced, exciting and suspenseful. It’s a story of corporate espionage, power and control, romance and love. It is told in dual POV which I really liked. I recommend reading the series in order for background history as Gabe picks up immediately from book one Lauren and you’ll get a better feel for the characters.

Leigh James writes contemporary romance and romantic suspense. She is a vocal lover of strapping Alpha males in movies, books and real life, which makes her three kids roll their eyes and makes her husband feel appreciated. When she’s not writing, you can usually find her reading or watching Outlander, Game of Thrones, and Vikings (see penchant for Alpha males, above). She has a degree in journalism from the University of New Hampshire, which is good for deadlines and word counts, and a law degree from Suffolk University School of Law with a Concentration in High Technology Law, which is helpful when writing about sexy tech billionaires with legal woes.
