Once upon a Billionaire

Once upon a Billionaire - Jessica Clare Maylee Merriweather is the exact opposite of Griffin Verdi and together they prove that opposites really do attract. I found myself utterly enchanted while these two danced around each other. As before with the others in the series, Ms. Clare does a fantastic job presenting characters that are both entertaining and believably real, even while the men happen to be Billionaires, and in Griffin’s case royalty, they are still down to earth and mostly realistic. Though out of all of them, Griffin is the most disconnected from the common world, which has as much to do with his penchant for having his nose stuck in a research book as growing up as a member of royalty and having servants handle his every need.

Maylee grew up dirt poor in the South, so she is fascinated and easily frustrated by Griffin’s attitude and moments of helplessness because he’s so very clueless how to take care of his own life. I enjoyed the small country that the author creates to give Griffin that elusive link to royalty. I found myself wanting to visit there because of her superb job of describing it, it became real in my mind.

Overall, I recommend this story for its humor, romance and its ability to enchant and entice into letting go of the world around in order to become immersed in the world created by the author.
