RATTING FIVE STARS
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.
The Rich Boy by Kylie Scott is a beautiful love story. I really loved this story.
Alice and Beck meet in a restaurant where Alice worked as a waitress and Beck as a busboy. For the first time when they see each other, they clicked. Their connection was amazing and their banter was funny. They felt that their connection worth exploring and to found out if they really have a chance to be together forever.
“You want to be with me and I want to be with you. Enough excuses. Take the leap Alice. Promise I won’t let you fall.”
They were just two people who meet and who liked each other until Beck’s had to go back to his real life. Beck is a billionaire and he had a very different life than Alice. He had to go home and to take care of his business but he wanted Alice to come back with him. Alice wasn’t ready to let go of her life but her feelings were more stronger and she accepts to go with Beck.
“There are going to be people who don’t like me. And there are certainly going to be people who don’t like us together. But the thing is, they don’t matter. It’s up to you and me to decide what’s best for us.”
Alice discovered that Beck’s life is complicated and she had to learn how to manage his social life and his family is very different than her family. They build a home together and they didn’t let that his family or their differences separated them. They learned to created their world and to accept each other. Beck loves Alice for who she is and didn’t want to change her. He just want to keep her and to love her.
“I love you. That’s a fact. I don’t think maybe I’m in love with you or there’s a chance of strong emotions in me regarding you at some future date. I love you and that isn’t going anywhere.”
I loved The Rich Boy and I love Beck because he recognizes his mistakes and he accepted to work at them for his good and his relationship with Alice. They worked at their relationship and they didn’t give up on each other. The Rich Boy by Kylie Scott was an amazing read and I recommend everyone who wants to read a sweet romance.
Excerpt The Rich Boy
“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.”
“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.”
