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 was my first ever Raine Miller book, and I'm happy to say it won't be my last.
The story between Caleb Blackstone and Brooke Casterley is a heartwarming one. At the start I can easily say that I wasn't sure if I liked Caleb or not. It's usually how it always starts for me, not really liking the alpha's arrogant, up themselves attitude but then they do something that seriously melts my heart and that's it then, I fall head over heels and that's how it went with Caleb. He's filthy rich and falls for the one girl who captures him at first glace. I love how he doesn't put pressure on her for anything, and is there to comfort her in her times of need. Swoon!
Brooke has been through some traumatic stuff throughout her life. When Caleb comes into her world she's shown a love that she's not experienced before. The chemistry between these two is something out of a fairytale. The love that forms between Caleb and Brooke is a powerful kind, you can feel it as you read Raine's words.
I loved the characters, although I become super annoyed at Caleb's mother, but hey who cares about her. There have been some twists and turns thrown into this story.
As I said, a wonderful story and well worth the read. I'll be reading more of Raine's books in the future.
