PAGES: Approx. 354

RATING: 4 Stars!

The Rich Boy, an all-new “do not miss” swoon-worthy standalone with off-the-charts chemistry from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, is available now!

I’m the type of girl who’s given up on fairy tales. So when Beck – the hot new busboy at work – starts flirting with me, I know better than to get my hopes up. Happily ever afters aren’t for the average. I learned that the hard way.

But how can I be expected to resist a man who can quote Austen, loves making me laugh, and seems to be everything hot and good in this world?

Only there’s so much more to him than that.

Billionaire playboy? Check.
Troubled soul? Check.
The owner of my heart, the man I’ve moved halfway across the country to be with, who’s laying the world at my feet in order to convince me to never leave? Check. Check. Check.

But nobody does complicated like the one percent.

This is not your everyday rags-to-riches, knight-in-shining armor whisking the poor girl off her feet kind of story. No, this is much messier.

“Rich Boy was witty, exciting and had the most intense slow burn romance I’ve read in a long time. ”
—Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times bestselling author

REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4 Stars!

The Review:
This book was just a whole lot of FUN!! I love, loved it!

Alice is a waitress at a dive bar. When the sexy new busboy starts to flirt with her, she’s wary but also interested and intrigued. They click instantly. Beck has secrets and seems to be a wanderer. Alice has been hurt by a past relationship. But a bond is definitely forming. When Beck is unexpectedly called back home, Alice has a choice - join him and see where their bond leads, or give up on a chance at something great. But when she joins him, his life is so far from her own. The flirty good times they started with becomes a tricky, rolling hill of complications.

The rich guy who falls for the common girl isn’t a new trope. It’s been done many times before. But if done right, if given a new take and a new twist, it can give you all those fluttering feels and good vibes you desire from your reads. THIS is that book!

I enjoyed Alice a lot. She was smart, quick-witted and didn’t put up with anyone’s mean-girl act. She has insecurities, but she didn’t let them rule her or keep her from new adventures. When Beck flirts, he’s got heartbreak written all over him, but she takes a chance and goes for it. She does this many times throughout the book. I loved that audacious, courageous side of her.

Beck Elliot... what can I say about this clever, amazing, sexy, hero? He was the bee's knees! He was sweet and fun and just a delight to read. He was definitely the alpha male with a soft side. He had his own insecurities, but he wasn’t stuck in his ways and he was open to change. He lavished upon Alice and loved her just the way she was. He was the total “swoon” package!

The chemistry between Beck and Alice was on point right from the start. Fun and entertaining at first. Then the fuse was lit and wanton touches, hungry kisses, and firey looks ultimately exploded into hot passion and lusty good times! A true slow burn that kept me invested all the way through. My only quibble? It might have been a little too slow.

The banter... I have to talk about the awe-inspiring, absolutely out-of-this-world banter between ALL the characters. The story was good. The characters were great. The banter though? That brought it all together making this one fabulous read!

The Rich Boy was a slow burn, sweet romance with two stunning and vibrant mains I instantly fell in love with. Light on conflict and angsts, this was a playful, satisfying read that kept me going until the very end. When I hit the last page, I wanted more, more, more!

Did I say I loved it? Because I totally did!

“You haven’t told me your story,” he says once we’re seated in a booth and have ordered.

 “I finished my degree and realized it was basically good for nothing and there were next to no jobs available anyway. Or at least nothing that appealed. Teachers and librarians are fighting for every scrap of funding they can get while newspapers are folding. The publishing industry is going through serious cutbacks. Majoring in English Lit may have been a mistake.” I shrug. Truth is, I got stuck for various reasons. But this explanation is easier to swallow. “Figured if I was going to wind up serving then I’d like to do it somewhere I can walk along the beach now and then, without getting stuck in traffic for hours.” 

He nods. “Makes sense.” 

“I thought so. I’ll figure out what I want to do with my life eventually.” 

“No rush. Good that you can take the time and space to figure things out for yourself without anyone pressuring you.” 

“Just the student loans hanging over my head,” I say. 

His answering smile is brief and small. “Grow up around here?” 

“Close enough, San Bernardino,” I say. “What about you?” 

“No, I’m half a country away from home and intend to keep it that way. Though maybe half a country away is still too close. I hear Iceland’s nice this time of year.” 

I raise my brows in question. 

“Family.” He shrugs. “What can you do?” 

The waitress delivers our food, filling up the table with Beck’s order of half of the breakfast menu. Without hesitation, he proceeds to devour it all. If I ate that much, my ass wouldn’t fit in the seat. 

“Want some?” He offers me a forkful of pancake, dripping with syrup. “It’s good.” 

“I’m fine with my burger. Thanks.” And I’m curious as heck about his family, but pressing him further wouldn’t be polite. Dammit. 

“So what are my future wife’s favorite hobbies and or interests?” 

“Hmm.” I stick a fry in my mouth and chew, thinking it over. “Reading, films, music…the usual. You?” 

“Lots of things.” 

“Such as?” 

“I don’t know…hiking, rock climbing. Stuff like that.” 

“So basically I like to sit still and you’re all about being busy and athletic. We have nothing in common.” 

“No. Wait. I can change,” he jokes. “Give me another chance.” 

“You shouldn’t have to change.” I swirl another fry in some ketchup. “I’m sure you’re perfectly fine just as you are.”
