The Rich Boy has given me the HUGEST book hangover I've had in the longest time. I've tried to pick up several different books and none of them can grab my attention. All I want to do is slip back into Alice and Beck's world --I truly wish I could read it for the first time all over again--it was that kind of book.

I loved how the premise of this novel was such a fantasy (I mean, who in this life is lucky enough to get swept off of her feet from a sucky waitress job by a bazillionare who is quite wonderful?!) and I was so there for every second of it. From the first few days of working together to the day Alice realized who Beck really was, I loved their everything. Their conversations, their taking it slow, their sweetness and humor? It was exactly the novel I needed.

Alice was so level headed and I really admired how she handled everything that came her way. If I could have an ounce of her poise on a daily basis, I'd be happy. I loved how she seemed to have an interior monologue that was snarky and normal while her outward dialogue was measured and completely appropriate for each scene. I loved her body positivity. I loved how honest and forthright she was, even when it could've made her vulnerable. And I loved how she refused to back down or allow others to demean her and how she basically expected those around her to do better and be better, when they weren't.

Alice was just what Beck needed and I loved Beck for her. He was charming and sweet and his pet names for her made me all gooey inside. His family was a hot mess and I appreciated how he did his best to make sure they treated Alice the way they should. And even when things got messed up and I found myself disappointed, Beck managed to grovel and charm and work his magic to get them to the HEA I was thrilled to see.

I hated to see this one end and am selfishly hoping Kylie Scott decides to write more about this family. I loved the mix of fairy tale and realism in The Rich Boy and I can't wait to read it all over again.

I’m the type of girl who’s given up on fairy tales. So when Beck – the hot new busboy at work – starts flirting with me, I know better than to get my hopes up. Happily ever afters aren’t for the average. I learned that the hard way.
But how can I be expected to resist a man who can quote Austen, loves making me laugh, and seems to be everything hot and good in this world?
Only there’s so much more to him than that.
Billionaire playboy? Check. Troubled soul? Check. The owner of my heart, the man I’ve moved halfway across the country to be with, who’s laying the world at my feet in order to convince me to never leave? Check. Check. Check.
But nobody does complicated like the one percent.
This is not your everyday rags-to-riches, knight-in-shining armor whisking the poor girl off her feet kind of story. No, this is much messier.

“You haven’t told me your story,” he says once we’re seated in a booth and have ordered.
“I finished my degree and realized it was basically good for nothing and there were next to no jobs available anyway. Or at least nothing that appealed. Teachers and librarians are fighting for every scrap of funding they can get while newspapers are folding. The publishing industry is going through serious cutbacks. Majoring in English Lit may have been a mistake.” I shrug. Truth is, I got stuck for various reasons. But this explanation is easier to swallow. “Figured if I was going to wind up serving then I’d like to do it somewhere I can walk along the beach now and then, without getting stuck in traffic for hours.”
He nods. “Makes sense.”
“I thought so. I’ll figure out what I want to do with my life eventually.”
“No rush. Good that you can take the time and space to figure things out for yourself without anyone pressuring you.”
“Just the student loans hanging over my head,” I say.
His answering smile is brief and small. “Grow up around here?”
“Close enough, San Bernardino,” I say. “What about you?”
“No, I’m half a country away from home and intend to keep it that way. Though maybe half a country away is still too close. I hear Iceland’s nice this time of year.”
I raise my brows in question.
“Family.” He shrugs. “What can you do?”
The waitress delivers our food, filling up the table with Beck’s order of half of the breakfast menu. Without hesitation, he proceeds to devour it all. If I ate that much, my ass wouldn’t fit in the seat.
“Want some?” He offers me a forkful of pancake, dripping with syrup. “It’s good.”
“I’m fine with my burger. Thanks.” And I’m curious as heck about his family, but pressing him further wouldn’t be polite. Dammit.
“So what are my future wife’s favorite hobbies and or interests?”
“Hmm.” I stick a fry in my mouth and chew, thinking it over. “Reading, films, music…the usual. You?”
“Lots of things.”
“Such as?”
“I don’t know…hiking, rock climbing. Stuff like that.”
“So basically I like to sit still and you’re all about being busy and athletic. We have nothing in common.”
“No. Wait. I can change,” he jokes. “Give me another chance.”
“You shouldn’t have to change.” I swirl another fry in some ketchup. “I’m sure you’re perfectly fine just as you are.”
