Synopsis

The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success—at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love…

As a member of the royal family in a small European country, Griffin Verdi’s presence is requested at the wedding of the century. The scholarly billionaire feels out of his depth in social situations, so a good assistant is required—especially when dealing with royal etiquette.

Unfortunately for Griffin, he’s stuck with Maylee Meriweather, a pretty, charming, and thoroughly unsuitable woman who doesn’t know a thing about high society—but she sure can kiss. Her lack of polish may sink Griffin, because after all, even his money can’t buy class. But through Maylee’s eyes, he’s starting to appreciate the simple things in life—if simple means the most complicated woman he’s ever met.

Maylee is everything Griffin isn’t—and everything he wants—if he can let down his guard and step outside his sheltered world…

Review

I can’t say that I was disappointed in this book because I still enjoyed it much more than I ever did a lot of other books I came across. However, considering how I was such a fan of the first three books and how much I couldn’t stop gushing about them, I’d have to say, this book wasn’t as satisfying.

First of all, I couldn’t relate to Maylee. I get that she’s kind and pretty. However, I just couldn’t get myself to like her. I would have liked her better if she ended up with Cade. I just could not see her ending up with Griffin. She may just have been too nice for him and I feel that while Griffin may love her, she wasn’t really what he needed.

Okay, let me clarify that. I like Maylee. I just did not like her for Griffin. There was too much difference between them. It wasn’t just about their stations in life. It was how they were as people. It was their whole character. I feel like Griffin should have someone stronger and Maylee should have someone who could equalize her kindess in a different way than how Griffin’s stiffness seems to be a buffer instead of a complementing it.

The book was enjoyable because, hey, it’s about the brotherhood. Also, I definitely enjoy the scenes where Gretchen was present. I absoulutely adored Gretchen in her book. In this book, I don’t know if I found her funny or if she was just too much. However, I still think she rocks and she’s one of the best things in this series.

I can’t wait to read and review the 5th book and put it up on the blog next week. This series has turned out to be one of the most enjoyable and entertaining series that I’ve read this year. Jessica Clare has created a group of billionaires that make her readers’ hearts race and wish that they were one of those women that these rich hot men fell in love with.
