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.

"When you find whatever it is that makes you happy, Caleb, hold on to it with everything you've got. Your heart will let you know."

Caleb Blackstone knows almost immediately that getting Brooke Casterley will be inevitable for him. He becomes quickly captivated by her natural beauty, humor, charm, and spunk. He begins his pursuit of her  by setting up ways to help her and to get to spend time with her. It's insta-lust and perhaps insta-love for this most eligible bachelor.

Caleb believes in little twists of fate. Their lives have some things that tie them together though they grew up on opposite ends of the spectrum and with completely different past histories. Caleb is patient and kind despite his money and power. Brooke is sweet, smart, emotional, but strong. They have a good rapport, passion, and chemistry. Is it too good to be true?

Brooke's life has been a series of choices that were taken away from her and she still suffers the after-effects. Being in control is now very important to her. Caleb is used to taking control and handling everything. His life is surrounded b paparazzi, toxic people, and expectations. She prefers a quiet life. Can they really survive a Cinderella fairy tale?

Caleb Blackstone...sigh...he is a swoon-worthy hero. He is not the typical, arrogant rich jerk. He is a man of means used to getting anything he wants, and people listen. He is also a gentleman, caring, protective, and supportive, but still exudes strength and charisma. He never wavers in his devotion or plans. He knows exactly what he wants and is persistent enough to see it through. But he has to be wary of pushing too hard and risk scaring her away.

Brooke has more issues due to fears, trust, and her past. She feels the need to protect herself at times. But she is sweet, loving, and has an inner strength about her. But she does not really fit into the world he was born into.

This couple is just such a good match despite their differences. Their bond and passion are strong, and they actually communicate and understand each other. There are some surprises and some challenges, but it is really just a really romantic story without an abundance of angst and drama. There are definitely some challenges and some past issues. But it really is just a heartwarming read about true love, fate, and following your heart.

This book is engaging and flows so well.  I became easily engrossed in  this American Blackstone world. It is told in both of their points of view. It introduces the Blackstone siblings Lucas, Wyatt, Willow, and Winter and their close friends James and Victoria. Raine Miller has managed to create a whole new family with unique personalities, interesting dynamics, strong bonds, and secrets. I am already interested in the couplings to follow since some have been teased.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Raine 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! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A former teacher, she's now writing sexy romance stories full time. She has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons 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.
