He’s just a sweet, somewhat nerdy, regular guy who also happens to me a billionaire. In other words, he’s the billionaire I’ve been waiting for in romance land for a very, very long time. He’s also in love with his assistant. Too bad this book came out a little too recently to have been included in our hottest bosses list awhile back, because Nate would’ve been totally at home there.
Becca is a perfect match for Nate. She’s understanding about his slight lack of social graces, she’s smart and just as hard working as Nate, and she’s good at her job. (I love reading about competent people. Competence porn, I call it. Becca gives good competence porn.)
Becca and Nate have a great friendship before they become lovers, which I adore. There’s nothing better than a good friends-to-lovers read. (Again, this one is a little too recently released to have been included on our best friends-to-lovers list. Sigh. Guess I’m going to have to update those lists one of these days.)
The other great thing about this book is that it can be read as a standalone, even though it’s part of a series. Even if you don’t read the other books (which I don’t understand. Why wouldn’t you want to read them? They’re great!), you can enjoy Brooklynaire without feeling like you’ve missed something important. It takes a super talented author to write a series that can be read as standalones.
So, long-story-short, this is a sweet, sexy, hilarious at times, friends-to-lovers romance that will also satisfy fans of hockey/sports romance, and office romances. In other words, there’s a little something for every romance fan in this one. Get to 1-clickin’, folks. You won’t regret it
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
Crushes it! No rehab needed. This one’s clean and sober.
