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.

“FOR A CONTROL FREAK, I HAVE SURPRISINGLY LITTLE CONTROL AROUND YOU. IT’S DISCONCERTING.”-Beck
This is not my first read by the author but a first official review. I have read Kylie’s book before I started all my bookstagramming! And I forgot how much I LOVE HER books!! ALTERNATIVE CINDERELLA STORY! I really did not want it to end, and sadly I have to report but no epilogue and I almost cried!
The heroine ALICE is a woman living life day by day, working, accepting where she stands and doing so to get by. She is a waitress in California. When a new staff comes on, she is intrigued but keeps her distance. The hero BECK is seductive, handsome, big, strong, sarcastic, real and just real. He is passing through but when his eye caught Alice, he knew he had to be near her if anything. They both hit it off right away and things kind of go fast…but as Alice thinks this is too good to be true, it really is because the ever so sexy and mysterious new boy that doesn’t want to “take things to the next level sexually” because he wants to get to know her…really is too good to be true. This is very steamy as well, it is a slow-burn but once it’s there, it’s blazing THEIR CHEMISTRY IS INSANE from the banter, to jokes, to Beck quoting JANE AUSTIN and being the right kind of sarcastic well they both are, to alike-ness GAH I loved both the characters!
I don’t want to say any more because this really will shock you because not only is it fast love, but the mystery, the truth….gah, you will never be able to figure out what’s to come next with this. I really was taken back and forgot how much I love Kylie’s books because her writing is something else. It’s something different AND REAL! Absolutely couldn’t get enough of this book!
