Book Review: Filthy Rich by Raine Miller

Filthy Rich (Blackstone Dynasty, #1)
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.

Filthy Rich is a insta-love, insta-healing love story. I enjoyed the sweet, intense connection between the main characters however I did find story long and the climax unfulfilling.

The story is center around a quickly budding relationship. Brooke Casterley has returned home to take care of her injured grandmother and regain her life. Her grandmother had brought Brooke to the U.S. and raised her after her parents had tragically died. Brooke had moved to San Diego until tragedy struck. Now that's she's back in Massachusetts Brooke is working as an interior designer and has a small second job to pay the bills. It's while working her second job that Brooke meets the beautiful, generous and filthy rich Caleb Blackstone. Caleb quickly becomes infatuated with Brooke and his feelings only intensify when he discovered their connection. Brooke's grandmother had worked for the Blackstone's for decades including caring for Caleb Blackstone.

While Brooke had been away, she had tragic accident that changed her life. Coming home began her healing process and she wasn't ready to jump back into another relationship. Caleb had his job cut out for him trying to convince Brooke that he's the man for her.

The story is written in dual POV although there were times I was still left wondering what the other character was thinking or feeling. The ending was anti-climatic and the epilogue seemed awkward, the significant revelations seemed more of an afterthought. 3 Stars.
