Southern Texas heats up when the first of four roughneck billionaire brothers sets his sights on love in this novel from New York Times bestselling author Jessica Clare.
Boone Price and his brothers know oil; at least, the dirty, backbreaking side of working an oil rig. But when their scrubby, worthless hunting land turns out to be sitting on top of one of the biggest oil wells in North America, they go from the rig to the boardroom and end up billionaires practically overnight.
Now with enough money to do whatever he wants, Boone is developing a taste for fine things. And the finest thing he's ever seen is Ivy Smithfield, local realtor. Boone's determined to win her affection and show the world that he's more than just a dirty fool with a bit of money. Ivy's classy and beautiful—she'll make the perfect trophy wife. The fact that she's sexy and funny is just a bonus.
There's one tiny problem—Ivy's as dirt poor as Boone was. Her carefully crafted veneer of luxury? All an act to promote her business. What's Boone going to do when he finds out the woman he's falling for is, well, in his league?
Light and Fun!
Boone Price grew up poor and was lucky enough to hit it rich when he discovered a big oil well. He comes from humble beginnings and is uncouth and has simple tastes. One day Boone decides he is tired of people laughing at his redneck ways and decides to find a classy woman to marry. When he meets Ivy, a real estate agent, he decides she is the one.
Boone doesn't care what people think; he says whatever is in on his mind and takes what he wants. He is attracted to Ivy and insists on making her his wife. Ivy is beautiful and sexy, but what Boone doesn't know is she grew up poor just like him. For all his gruffness, Boone is sweet, honest and treats Ivy well. Boone and Ivy each have insecurities and they have worked hard to get past their humble beginnings. Ivy is afraid to let Boone see who she really is. To be honest, I had a hard time connecting to the story and the characters. This is a fun, light story and it is the first book in the Roughneck Billionaires series and each book is a standalone story.
