Title: Not in a Billion Years
Author: Camilla Isley
Genre: Romantic Comedy
My Rating: 5 out of 5
She’s a self-made fitness sensation. He’s a billionaire mogul. They’re sworn enemies and rivals… aren’t they?
Blake Avery knows all about hard work. She’s gone from making videos in her teenage bedroom to founding a booming fitness business and opening a state-of-the-art Manhattan gym. Now she’s on the cusp of realizing her wildest dreams, and she’s not going to let anyone stand in her way.
Certainly not man-of-the-hour Gabriel Mercer. He might be one of the biggest names in the fitness world and set women’s pulses soaring more than a grueling HIIT workout, but he grew up in a billionaire dynasty and had everything handed to him – or so Blake thinks.
But when Blake publicly criticizes Gabriel, she sparks a feud that neither entrepreneur is willing to back down from. And in an industry that seems determined to keep pushing them together, can Blake hold on to her grudge? Or will she finally warm up to Gabriel’s charm?
My Review of Not in a Billion Years
I am a massive fan of Camilla Isley – having already read and loved The Love Proposal, Home for Christmas, Fool Me Twice at Christmas and You May Kiss the Bridesmaid, I knew I was going to love Not in a Billion Years just as much – and I was right! The story follows main character Blake – she has worked hard for everything in her life, and the success she has achieved so far with her fitness business is all down to the hard work she has put in.
This is why Blake also has a real dislike for one of her competitors – Gabriel Mercer. He might be one of the biggest names in the fitness world and set women’s pulses soaring more than a grueling HIIT workout, but he grew up in a billionaire dynasty and had everything handed to him – or so Blake thinks. So when Blake publicly calls him on how ‘easy’ he has had it – she starts a feud between the two that seemingly neither of them is willing to back down from.
Despite their rivalry, fate has other plans in store for Blake and Gabriel. As they find themselves repeatedly pushed together in the competitive fitness industry, sparks begin to fly in unexpected ways. The more time they spend together, the more they realise that there may be more to each other than meets the eye – not in a billion years did Blake think she could ever fall for someone like Gabriel.
Not in a Billion Years is not just a love story, but also a journey of self-discovery. Both Blake and Gabriel must confront their preconceived notions and learn to let go of their pride in order to open their hearts to the possibility of something more. Prepare to be swept away by the irresistible charm of Blake and Gabriel’s journey from enemies to lovers.
