BLOG REVIEW : Mr. Rich by Virna DePaul

She finds a wallet (not a shoe), and he’s a billionaire (not a prince), but this time, Cinderella’s turning the tables. . . . Julia: Shilling samples at a grocery store isn’t exactly my dream job. Yet here I am, tray in hand and fake smile plastered on my face. The one highlight is seeing him. I don’t know his name, but if I did, I’d scream it during the naughty dreams he inspires. He’s crazy handsome, all confidence and an air of power. He’s never said a word to me. Never even looked in my direction. Then one day he literally falls at my feet. Now I have his wallet. I know where he lives. And I’ve found the nude photos of him online. It’s not the bruschetta on her tray he really wants to taste. . . . Bastian: I’ve dated models, doctors, and CEOs, but something about Julia Rominger has me intrigued . . . and more than a little aroused. Maybe it’s her lush curves driving me wild. Or the fact that she has no problem telling me to go to hell. Either way, she’s seen me at my worst; I want to hit her with my best. I know where to touch, where to kiss, and just how far to push to drive her crazy. Soon, however, pleasuring Julia isn’t enough. I want to possess her. I need to make her mine. And I’ll fight to the bitter end to win her heart.
Virna DePaul presents her readers an interesting setting in her newest novel “Mr. Rich”. Two really totally opposite characters meet in the most unlikely situation and the plot developing from this was an truly interesting read.
It was my first book by this author and I liked her writing style. As for the character development I am not totally sure I liked Bastian completely. But that is surprisingly enough no issue in this book because even if I did not like him completely he still was interesting enough and I could connect to him an a personal level, because I could relate to his issues.
And It might be exactly because of this, that I am a little harder on him.
Anyway Julia had me laughing out so often with her chicken wings that it really mad up for anything that might not be completely “in line” with her character.
And together they were just great to the point of actual fun watching their relationship develop.
I also especially liked Bastions brother and the author wrote also some great characters to dislike in the story, which made the whole plot a really balanced thing.
In total it was a refreshing story that was a little of the norm from the usual plots you might expect and I liked that a lot that it was not a total cliché here. All in all a fully recommendable read
