frBlurb

Billionaire Caleb Blackstone lives in the glamorous world of wealth and success, with every material luxury. But the moment he sees Brooke Casterley, none of that matters. Caleb is filled with a raw, undeniable need that he can’t ignore…for a girl who is so completely different from everything and everyone he’s ever known.

 

Only Brooke isn’t looking for love. She knows all too well just how much damage the wrong guy can do. Still, what sane, broke British girl can resist the charms of an incredibly sexy, chivalrous billionaire? What starts as flirtation quickly turns into all-consuming passion. Nothing could have prepared her for the searing heat of Caleb’s touch—or just how much she craves him.

 

Their whirlwind romance is the stuff of high-society fantasy—but for every moment of pleasure, there is a cost. Past mistakes and tragedy shadow them both…and falling for him might be the kind of trouble she can’t afford.

Excerpt

 

I would give this thing two drinks max before I was outie.

Nodding and saying the right things, I shook hands with the colleagues who’d known my father and accepted condolences from others. I made a mental note of the people who’d made the effort to mention his name to me, and I would write them down with the event and date as soon as I got home.

I’d worked my way through the room, as I had been taught by my dad—by the best to ever work a roomful of potential deals—when I decided I’d accomplished what I’d set out to do tonight. It was time for me to go. After setting my glass down on an empty table, I started for the door . . . until I saw her.

Just like that. She appeared in my line of sight and I couldn’t take my eyes off her.

The beautiful girl from this morning at the Starbucks on Hereford Street.

I knew it was her because how could anyone forget those sexy boots? Her blonde hair wasn’t down like it had been this morning, though. She’d pulled it back into a sleek ponytail . . . but she was serving at this event? I’d seen her go into that design studio next to Starbucks. She probably had two jobs. Industrious . . . beautiful . . . sexy.

I quickly returned for my half-empty glass and snatched it up from the table. I suddenly felt like an appetizer or two.

She saw me approaching and moved closer with her tray. “What are these called?” I asked without sparing her tray a second glance. Bad move on my part, but I was too busy taking in her golden eyes and hair, and everything else I could now see up close. Perfect skin, dark lashes that framed spectacular eyes, and a scar along the hairline of the right side of her face. Something had hurt her at some point in the past, and I found it utterly insane that I was disturbed by it.

She rolled her pink lips together as if she was trying to suppress laughter. “Well, they’ve told me it’s something called a . . . meatball. Very unusual gourmet creation. You should try one. They’re said to be quite delicious.”

That voice of hers was . . . fucking beautiful.

“Okay.” I picked up a meatball and popped it in my mouth. Didn’t taste a thing. I could have been chewing slaughterhouse by-products and I wouldn’t have known. My brain had shut off everything except her beautiful voice.

“You are either messing with me or that blow to your head must have been devastating. I would wager you’ve had a meatball before.”

“I am.”

She lost her smile. “You are messing with me?”

“No, I am devastating—I mean devastated—by the blow to my head.” What in the mother fuck was I even saying to this girl? I sounded like Rain Man minus the IQ. I needed to stop talking.

“I’m sorry to hear that. It looks painful.”

“It doesn’t hurt me now.” I think I smiled and shook my head but couldn’t be sure. Just call me the village idiot because I knew I was acting like one. I did love the sound of her voice, though.

“Another rare and precious meatball?” She offered her tray and studied me this time. She had to be disgusted by my appearance and turned off by my behavior, but she didn’t show it if she was.

“Yes, please.” I took another meatball but I didn’t eat it. “You are British.”

“You are American,” she said with a fast wink, before turning away to serve other guests.

I watched her walk away from me and felt the pounding of my heart vibrating throughout my entire body.

Something had just happened to me.

I wasn’t completely sure what exactly, but I was crystal clear on the reason.

Her.

Beth's Review

 

3 stars

 

I first fell in love with Raine Miller’s writing when I met Ethan Blackstone in Naked.  The Blackstone Affair series is still one of my all time favorite series.  So when I saw that she had a new series and it was another Blackstone I jumped at the chance to read it, I love me a good hot sexy alpha male.

 

Caleb Blackstone comes from a very wealthy family and wants for nothing.  That is till he meets Brooke Casterley.  He is taken with her the moment he sees her and finds a way to introduce himself to her and get to know her.  Brooke Casterley doesn’t come from much, it’s just her and her grandmother and she is working two jobs just to make enough money.  She is still trying to heal from her past relationship and is not looking for any type of relationship right now but that quickly changes as Caleb romances her and wins her over.  They come from two different sides of the island and two different lifestyles but will love be enough to make it work.

 

I immediately pulled into this story and really liked the setup of the storyline as well as the dynamic between Caleb and Brooke.  I really loved Caleb’s character, he was hot, sexy, rich and a total romantic so I found myself very excited about this one very early on.  Sadly that feeling didn’t last.  I found this one quickly turned very “insta-love” for me and that is a big turn me for off.  Their story was also sweet but again a little too sweet for my liking.  I do believe in love at first sight and do love a good book with that type of storyline but Filthy Rich just moved way too fast for me to really have their feelings feel genuine. 

 

I liked both characters but I found the initial characters we are first introduced to is not the same character we see as the story progresses and for me the switch was just a bit too much too quick for it to feel real.  For me I struggled with Caleb’s character going from a bit of a womanizer wanting women for only sex to someone who is immediately gushing over her and in love their first date.  I liked Brooke’s character, but at times she did grate on my nerves.  She came off strong at first and then like Caleb seemed to completely change character and became so much weaker.

 

Overall FIlthy Rich was a sweet romantic read and it kills me to say this but this one was just okay for me.    I really wanted to love it but it this one just didn’t keep me engaged in the story and I found it a bit too predictable.  I found their romance was a bit too sweet and at times a tad cheesy for my liking.  I wish I could love this one and I am sure I am in the minority but I am still very interested in finding out what the rest of the series will be like, just hoping that alpha male style I fell in love with in Ethan Blackstone will return in Winter and James’ story.

Displaying RAINE MILLER.jpgRaine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it’s a safe bet she’ll never stop, because now she writes them too!

A former teacher, she’s now writing sexy romance stories full time. She has a handsome prince of a husband, two brilliant sons, and two bouncy Italian Greyhounds to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! Raine loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books.
