romance, second chance, secret baby, arc I enjoyed this story about a young woman who finds love unexpectedly as she is on a girls trip to console her childhood friend whose fiance just announced he was in love with the pool boy and broke things off just before the wedding The ladies are all from Richmond, VA, and are debutante high society girls I grew up in South Carolina, so I am familiar with

are debutante high society girls I grew up in South Carolina, so I am familiar with that world though it was definitely not for this tomboy haha We learn early on that the jilted bride Charlene is a major witch with a b, as she is very self involved and arrogant from the start Her relationship with the female main character Olivia seems to be a remnant of their childhood where most friendships are defined by where you live and who your parents are friends with as both of these ladies are the children of wealthy businessmen, that connection is easy to make They seem not to have as much in common as adults, though, as Olivia is a kind, modest, and naive to some extent woman while Charlene is in it for herself as she feels she deserves to have whatever she wants, and she is far from the image of an innocent deb that Olivia seems to be Enter Vincent, the owner of the boutique hotel that the ladies venture to out in California to soak up some rays and mend Charlene s not so broken heart He likes to visit his resorts and act as though he is a guest he does not reveal to many including the staff that he owns the hot spots, and he enjoys his anonymity and ability to blend in so that he can see how things are really going with his businesses He is also from a very prominent Virginia family, though he has shunned the offers of money from his parents and refuses to follow in his father s footsteps thus, he used his inheritance from his grandfather to start his hotel business and is nearly as wealthy as his father at this point Charlene has chosen the Catalina Island spot as her father would like to be connected with Vincent s father to further his business pursuits, and as Vincent s father is of similar mind, he arranges the last minute booking unbeknownst to Vincent A significant part of Charlene s motivation for going to the resort is to meet the young self made billionaire to rebound with, though when she asks to speak with him, she is told he is not there Olivia immediately draws the attention of Vincent undercover, and even though they do not know who he is, Charlene is livid when Vincent turns her down and continues to pursue Olivia As she is used to getting whatever she wants, Charlene sabotages the budding love growing between Olivia and Vincent, and the couple is driven away from one another and remain out of touch for 2 years before meeting again in another unexpected way.What I liked about this book the h and H are both very likeable as they come from wealthy families but have maintained their own sense of self and modesty, and both are willing and want to work hard to be independent of their families broad influence the relationship they build is constructed very well by the author, and it is very believable that they fall for each other vs some of the insta love or no real connection relationships I have seen in many romance novels lately once they do reconnect, they are able to figure out what led to their ugly break up relatively quickly so the angst factor doesn t drag out so long and take over the storyWhat I didn t like as much Charlene as the villain was a little over the top some of her schemes especially the major one that happens that splits the couple up are pretty far fetched in the sense that she would not have likely had as much control over the situation leaking as she was given in this story Olivia is not a drinker, yet she gets wasted with Vincent when they reconnect even AFTER she finds out that he wasn t the giant douche she thought he was not sure why that would have happened to the extent it did, not to mention that he was so blitzed he also forgot a lot of what happened, and he was a regular drinker, so he probably wouldn t have gotten that out of control didn t seem like it added much to the story, so I am not sure why it was necessary The revenge on the villain part was not very satisfying probably better to have just taken the high road and not even given any credence to the attempts to ruin the coupleOverall, though, I enjoyed it and would recommend to those who are looking for a light, fun beach read this summer Story 4 5Female MC 4.5 5Male MC 4.5 5Other characters 3

blurb is darker and leads us to know there will be turmoil Oh, there was turmoil alright and our main characters had to deal with a She Devil who was instrumental in all of the anguish The overall story almost had a bit of the Dynasty Dallas Southern Society tone to it Rich women who had been part of the traditional group of growing up privileged and getting their way except for our gal, Olivia She bucked the trends by being authentic, sweet, sincere and virginal She has been best friends since childhood with an over indulgent snot who takes advantage of her goodness She was this woman s matron of honor for a wedding that was called off The no longer bride decides to take the Girls on a freedom trip to a resort on Catalina, CA.Vincent knows all about the type of women who just arrived at the resort he owns He happened to be there to lay low and relax Vincent has made a name for himself as a premier hotel resort owner He broke away from the family money and control because he didn t want to be a pawn in the family business His grandparent left him enough to front his first little BB and everything took off from there As this very successful owner, his way of making sure all of his places are exactly what a guest would wantis to come as a guest himself Very few employees know what he looks like or when he is at one the hotels His main contact at the Catalina Resort watches out for him Vincent is down at the beach just at daybreak There, a little bit away, is this beautiful woman in a pink one piece suit who has caught his eyeShe is throwing her hands out and embracing the beginning of the day It is something to watch and Vincent is about to approach her when another woman yells out to Olivia This woman is nothing like the pretty, sweet one on the beach she is hard edges where Olivia is soft and lush Vincent learns who both the women are and he is only interested in OliviaNow he just needs to figure out how to get her attention and take her out This is the tale of these two and right from the startyou know there are going to be hurdlesobstacles to overcome Banks crafts this with all of the necessary ups and downs the complexity of Vincent wanting Olivia and she needing to figure out what she actually wantswith the added benefit of She Devil in the wings looking to capture Vincent for herself This was a solid read yet, for me, I think I will stick to Banks lighter fare If you like the angsty feel of crossed lovers and then they finally coming together, then this will work well for you Before Reading Oh The RichYes, they can be differentBut they also can be just like usWhen He sees herAll sweet, friendly and authenticHe is captured, determined and claims her for his ownSurprise, SurpriseShe does not stick around for Years later, She cross

started on her I like smart antagonists Antagonists who are calculating, intelligent, and in some sensea bad ass Charlene had the manipulative factor, but her reasons for pining after Vincent was stupid Obviously, she has a classic case of narcissistic personality disorder, but she wanted to punish Olivia because Vincent didn t give her attention Here is the issue Charlene didn t even care for him except maybe for a good lay because he is described as good looking Not only was she just delusional, petty, conceited, and she was unlikeable to the point I was asking, why is Olivia even friends with her when it s clear as glass Charlene doesn t give a damn about anyone but herself Yes, I m aware that Charlene was written that way purposefully I just felt she d be compelling if she was at least a good friend and had her jealousy consume heralong with her narcissism to make her a better antagonist Even reading her POV, I felt as if I m reading from the mind of a literal child, and I was tempted to throw the whole book away I felt the author started to rush through during the heavy stuff The spicy scenes were okay Didn t really grab my plot and I felt there were a lot of missing holes Like I didn t see Olivia interact with her son, the kind of business her father ran and how they got into financial issues in the first place Also, I understood Olivia getting a job to help the

enjoyed the character development and progression of the story I would have given this five stars but I felt some elements were a little unrealistic I don t want to put in any spoilers so I ll be vague and say that social media is huge these days and I think the photos would have leaked out Also, it irritated me that Olivia didn t try a little harder to find out things about Vincent and he didn t share anything with her This led to problems later which I understand for the development of the story , but it seemed unrealistic that she didn t push for information.Since I am giving the story 4 stars, the above things didn t stop me from enjoying the story and the romance of it There were plenty aw moments and steamy heat as well This was my first book by this author and I ll be
