Her desperate financial situation takes a turn for the worse, but a miracle comes in the form of billionaire Simon Hudson. He offers her a solution that she can’t refuse, but she’s hesitant to accept help from a stranger.
Meanwhile, Simon is a reclusive billionaire who prefers creating computer games to mingling with the elite. When he meets Kara, something about her touches him in ways he’s never experienced before.
For over a year, Simon silently watches over her, but he can’t deny his desire to possess her any longer. When Kara finds herself in a dangerous situation, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving her, he might be saving himself too.
This is an erotic romance full of steamy love scenes, graphic language, and lots of emotion.

Scott tackles this issue head-on, showing the challenges that arise when love is complicated by money. However, the novel is not without its flaws.
One of the major weaknesses is the lack of diversity among the characters. The entire cast, including minor characters, are all wealthy, white, and conventionally attractive.
This exclusion of other identities feels narrow-minded and limiting. Overall, J.S. Scott’s “The Billionaire’s Obsession ~ Simon” is a captivating romance novel that explores the complexities of love and wealth.
