Review: Filthy Rich  (Blackstone Dynasty #1) by Raine Miller

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 is book one in Raine Miller’s Blackstone Dynasty series and it’s a doozy! Caleb Blackstone gets what he wants and he wants Brooke!

Caleb meets Brooke at a boring high-society function. They share some witty banter and Caleb is done for. Done for like dinner!

Brooke is English and now living in Boston with her Nan after she’s had some surgery. Working as a designer, she’s struggling to make ends meet. She works a second job as a server for catering functions. She meets Caleb and their connection is palatable! She has no idea who he is or what his claim to fame is. When she can’t get their meet-cute from the party out of her mind, she struggles to explain it.

Caleb is a billionaire walking in his father’s footsteps after his death. All glam, success and even paparazzi are his norm. When he meets Brooke, the axis in his world tilts and none of that means a cotton-picking thing! He must see her again! He also is having a hard time figuring out his immediate and sure-fire feelings for a girl he just met! There is no logical rhyme or reason for it! She doesn’t run in his circles so maybe that’s the allure?? He doesn’t know. He knows he is like a puppy with a bone and needs to connect with her as if his life depended on it.

When Caleb infiltrates Brookes life, she’s hesitant. She has man-issues from the past. But she can’t resist Caleb and his oh so gentlemanly ways! She ends up craving what Caleb brings and simply can not say NO! As the two forge ahead with their affair, ugly secrets and past mistakes creep out. Can they withstand the drama the paparazzi dream up?

I absolutely treasured this book! I adored Caleb and his ways-so very respectful. And it wasn’t an act! He was raised very well and gave people the respect they deserved. He put Brooke on a pedestal and never veered from his thoughts on her. This was a sure-fire case of love at first site and Raine Miller did a phenomenal job in making us feel that. Brooke was such a kind soul, troubled only because of her past, she radiated goodness. She always viewed herself as from the wrong side of the tracks, so she had a hard time accepting Caleb’s advances towards her. He never viewed her in that light and he continually thwarted her negative thoughts. Caleb was just a plain nice, good guy. Gosh anyone would be so lucky to have that. He broke down her defenses little by little so that left nothing that she couldn’t agree with.

I loved this entire story! I am so looking forward to book two! I am sure we will be treated to updates on the entire Blackstone’s of Boston family!
