Uptown girls who think they have the upper hand?
They don’t know Jack!
Jack Bowden has met enough rich women to know that Lone Star socialite Lexi Alderidge doesn’t take him seriously, even though their connection is instant. Still, the rugged contractor built his fortune from the ground up—surely he can build real rapport with Lexi the same way? But when “getting along” becomes “getting into bed,” will his brand of rough-and-tumble success ever truly fit into her high-class world?

Blue Collar Billionaire
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
While this is a part of a series, you don't have to read the prior stories to enjoy this one. I have not read them. I don't normally read "billionaire" stories. I prefer a more common everyday type of protagonist. That being said, I have read some of Ms. Booth's stories in the past and I love her style. The plots, just like this one, flow nicely, the scenes are not overly descriptive, letting your mind fill in the blanks. Her sexy scenes are the same way. They are slightly descriptive without going into pages upon pages of detail.
Lexi Alderidge is the oldest daughter to Winston Alderidge of Alderidge Bank. She is back in Royal after a divorce from her husband of 15 years. She recently suffered from being "left at the alter" (apparently the book prior to this one). She has firmly put men and relationships on the back burner for now. She flies out to a construction site to speak to the site supervisor. She comes across a wildly handsome man who just happens to own Bowden Construction, Jack Bowden. Jack is too busy to date anyone, especially with this project on a tight deadline!
The sparks just flew off of these two characters. I am surprised that my e-reader didn't burn up! I adored the interaction between the characters. They were total opposites in some areas. This story was also written in my favorite dual POV format. Getting that glimpse into the characters' thoughts really helped me to identify and connect with them.
I would highly recommend this story to anyone over the age of 18.
