I love books with billionaires in them. KIAN, the first book in the UNDERCOVER BILLIONAIRE SERIES, didn’t disappoint. I was sucked right into the action from the first page to the last and ended up reading the book in less than twenty-four hours!
Roxie and Kian have a history, and it’s getting in the way of the present, especially since they haven’t seen each other in four years. Roxie ran away from the love of her life, and now that she’s back due to circumstances beyond her control, neither she nor Kian are happy about it. They both have only loved each other, but while she lived her life after running away, she didn’t date and didn’t form any close relationships or friendships.
Kian became a lady’s man, but no one touched him like Roxie. As the chemistry is still there and continues to build, neither one of them knows what to do about their feelings. Everyone around them sees how they feel about the other, but Kian and Roxie are just having “moments” and feel they can disassociate whenever they want. But since a precious someone is holding them together, that’s not likely to happen.
I loved learning the history of Kian and Roxie while also getting to know their families. Kian is one of the good guys even though he’s rich. His family is always there for one another and puts their wealth to good use. The relationships and family connections seemed real and had me wanting to learn more about Kian’s family. Roxie came from the poor side of the tracks and had an alcoholic father and a sister from whom she was estranged.
The characters had a depth to them, and we learned about them a little at a time. We also get to know about some of the community members and things they are involved in. There were both happy and sad moments mixed in with an emotional and loving story. There is nice closure with a happily ever after, but there are a lot more stories to tell since Kian has three brothers and a sister, and their father and grandfathers seem to be into matchmaking. I can’t wait to read more!
Melody Anne is a new-to-me author, only having read the first book in her BILLIONAIRE BACHELORS SERIES. I need to rectify that and have added a few of her books to my always growing TBR pile!
