Book Summary:

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 

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. 

My Thoughts:

The Rich Boy was signature Kylie Scott!  She creates the most delicious, sexy, and swoon-worthy male leads!  Readers will be in line for Beck to be their next book boyfriend.

I loved this slow burn romance!  It was like a modern day Cinderella.    Alice is an intelligent, witty, hard-working and educated woman.  Unfortunately, she's had trouble finding a career with her degree in English.  Struggling financially, she works as many hours as she can, waitressing and working the bar.  While working she meets sweet, caring and charismatic busboy, Beck.  They connect, and share a strong attraction. 

Alice and Beck's lives get turned upside down when his father dies, and he is expected to go back home to all of his responsibilities.  He asks Alice to go with him, and because neither of them want to be apart, she accepts.  Both of their lives are turned upside down when they encounter all of the problems that come with being part of the exclusive billionaire upper class. 

The Rich boy was low angst and drama.  Alice and Beck had to deal with their share of obstacles, but the focus was on their romance, chemistry, and the relationships with his family.  Something that I appreciated was how sex was not the focus of this story.  Beck wanted to wait until they had a strong and solid foundation to be intimate, because he really wanted things to work.  This decision paid off, because I really felt their deep authentic emotional connection.  

If you are looking for a dreamy, sweet, adorable, and sexy male lead, look no further.  Beck will have you swooning, and Alice is so strong, and likable, that you will be cheering her on!  I highly recommend The Rich Boy!  Romance readers, you are in for a treat!

Book Excerpt:

“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.”
