Is there more to the spoiled, entitled, British billionaire man-whore than what I see on the surface?
I really want to hate Dylan Lancaster.
He hurt my best friend, and nearly destroyed her relationship with his identical twin brother. So, I decide that someone needs to rein him in so he doesn’t try to demolish the couple completely before their wedding takes place. Unfortunately, the only woman who would try to take on that impossible task is…me.
It’s only six weeks, right? Surely I can tolerate the womanizing, obnoxious jerk and keep him out of trouble so that no more of his scandals hit the media before his brother’s wedding. I’m a public relations crisis manager. Squashing bad press is what I do, and I do it extremely well for my high profile clients.
What I don’t count on is actually starting to like the glimpses of the real Dylan I begin to see underneath all of his cynicism. Nor did I ever imagine that I’d become so attracted to him that I could barely breathe every time he gets close to me.
Dylan is a man who has suffered profound emotional pain. I can sense it. I can feel it. The question is: Can I possibly reach the real Dylan Lancaster before it’s too late?
Note: This is an enemies to friends to lovers British billionaire romance with an American heroine. I’d recommend reading Damian’s story first in Tell Me You’re Mine, Book 1 of The British Billionaires to enhance your reading pleasure.

We first met Dylan in Tell Me You’re Mine, book 1 of the British Billionaires series (click here to see my review of Tell me You’re Mine). And now he’s back in Tell Me I’m Yours, where he gets the chance to share his own story.
Dylan has struggled with demons for the past two years. But after a nasty situation with his identical twin brother at the end of book one (you’ll need to read for yourself, I’m not telling), Dylan is finally starting to think about cleaning up his act and rebuilding his relationship with his family. But he’s got quite a lot of work to do, as he’s pretty unpopular with just about everyone when the story first starts.
And there’s where Kylie comes in. She is the best friend of Damian’s fiancée (who we also met in book 1) and she wants to help by ensuring that Dylan doesn’t misbehave in the weeks before their wedding. She takes it upon herself to watch over him in the leadup to the big day.
At first it seems to Kylie like the next six weeks are going to be a hard slog, but as time passes, Kylie begins to see a different side to Dylan. Same for Dylan. When he first meets Kylie, he’s just not interested in her plan at all. But as time passes, he begins to see that having her around isn’t so bad after all. Between the two of them, time spent together brings them closer until the attraction that they feel for each other does the rest.
Tell Me I’m Yours starts off with a slow burn, but it certainly doesn’t continue on that way. Once the attraction between these two is acknowledged, all signs of ‘slow’ are out the window.
I struggled somewhat with my feelings about this book. Kylie is a strong-willed woman who has overcome her own fair share of demons and difficulties in her past. Dylan is working to overcome his own demons and get back to the man he used to be. In Kylie’s case I liked her, but I didn’t really feel particularly invested in her efforts to help Dylan until the second half of the book. And with Dylan, I didn’t really find myself empathising with him much at all until well into the second half of the book. Even when we got to the stage of finding out what was really behind his emotional struggles, I found myself being a bit judgemental and lacking in sympathy to a degree. Instead, I was a little annoyed by him.
J.S. Scott is one of my favourite authors and I have always loved her characters and plots. But this time, while I still thought it was a great book, I wasn’t caught as hook, line and sinker as I usually am. That’s not to say though that I didn’t enjoy the book, because I did! J.S. Scott has a way of writing that always just draws me in and keeps me not wanting to put the book down, and that was still the case. It just took me longer to befriend the characters than it usually does. I’m happy to report though, that I did get there by the end. At about 2/3 of the way through I found myself liking both characters more, to the point where I was ready to celebrate with them when they got to their happy ending.
There is still one more brother to go in the British Billionaires series and the teaser for the next instalment has got me totally sucked in and impatient for the last brother to have his moment in the spotlight. Bring it on!
