Will his billion-dollar fortune cause him to lose the woman he loves?
Jarryd Westbourne is shocked to have inherited a billion-dollar fortune from the mother who’d given him up for adoption. Unfortunately, business complications force him to keep it a secret from everyone for a period of time, even from Marilyn Grant, the woman he’s crazy about. When his birth mother’s husband suddenly challenges the will and accuses him of foul play, he ends his relationship with Marilyn to protect her from any scandal. But can he ever win Marilyn back if she discovers what he’s been hiding from her?
Can her love survive a necessary deception?
Marilyn Grant was heartbroken when Jarryd Westbourne dumped her unexpectedly. But she believes that Jarryd broke up with her only because he’s intimidated by her parents being billionaires while he’s only of average means. She’s keen to prove to Jarryd that she doesn’t care one bit that his wealth is nowhere near her family’s. After all, love and trust, not money, are the foundations of a lasting relationship. And Jarryd is one guy she knows she can trust…

Not for me 3.5*
Jarryd says, fairly early on in the book 'If there was anything he didn't want to lose, it was Marilyn's trust'. This being the case why didn't he trust her not to betray a confidence and TALK to her? At every opportunity he put this off, even knowing that she was bound to find out sometime and that if it came from anyone other than him it would be a disaster. For me, this major misjudgement, affected how I felt about the character and I didn't really get into the book until about two thirds through. I realise that these lies of omission were the entire premise of the novel but it didn't work for me.
Note of warning: some strong language.
