His best friend’s sister was off limits. But some rules are meant to be broken.
Billionaire Drew Burrows had high hopes of finding love as the bachelor on a reality TV show. Instead, he’s sent home with a "girlfriend" he doesn't really like. When his best friend’s little sister is hired by the show, he realizes his girlfriend doesn't stand a chance because his feelings for Kate didn’t disappear when she became someone else’s wife.
Kate Dawson has two goals: get her screenplays on the big screen and keep her divorce a secret. So when her new boss insists that she push Drew towards an engagement, she promises to do her best. But she soon discovers that working closely with Drew brings back powerful memories of a fateful night seven years ago that started with a stolen kiss and ended in heartbreak.
With the world watching and the paparazzi around every corner, Drew and Kate must decide whether to follow the rules or allow their hearts to finally have their way.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
As with many of the billionaire stories I’ve read, the fact that Drew is rich mostly comes to play in the way he doesn’t know which of the women in his life really care about him for who he is and not for his notoriety or his money. (Of course, if he was really thinking about it, that would have been reason enough to keep him from agreeing to be on the reality dating show!)
The chemistry between Drew and Katie is well written. It manages to be electric without being inappropriate. I really appreciate the way the author manages to describe kisses in a way you can feel the attraction without providing visuals that are way too much. And I appreciate that Drew has a commitment to keep himself pure until he marries and is not the typical roguish bad-boy. Kate is so sweet. She needs a nice guy like him.
I loved the scene where Drew and Kate were making brownies in her mom’s kitchen. The witty repartee and the sparks that were flying were so much fun! Another great scene was where Drew helped Kate come up with dialog for her screenplay. His lame attempt at improvisation was hilarious!
Overall, this was a fun read. If you enjoy stories with a premise that is a little over the top (remember, this is about a billionaire!) and a lot of humor and sweet romance, this is a story for you.
