This book was a wild ride! Bea is an antihero that I loved despite her cold, hard heart. She has a goal in mind and nothing will stand in her way, not even Gale, her new nemesis. Gale is the bestie of the man she has set her sights on, and as soon as they met, the game was ON. Bea soon learns that Gale might just be a formidable foe. She’s got to keep her head in the game and make sure Gale doesn’t bring her past back to haunt her.
This book is so good! It’s told in first person and I found myself flying through the pages wanting to know what Gale would come up with next and how Bea would counter it. So much (nail-biting) fun!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Like any enterprising woman, Bea knows what she’s worth and is determined to get all she deserves—it just so happens that what she deserves is to marry rich. After a lifetime of forced instruction in the art of swindling men by her mother, Bea wants nothing more than to escape her shadow, close the door on their sordid past, and disappear safely into old-money domesticity.
When Bea finds her final mark in the perfectly dull blue-blooded Collin, she’s ready to deploy all her tricks one last time. The challenge isn’t getting the ring, but rather the approval of Collin’s family and everyone else in their tax bracket, particularly his childhood best friend Gale. Going toe-to-toe with Gale isn’t a threat to an expert like Bea, but what begins as an amusing cat-and-mouse game quickly develops into a dangerous chase. As the truth of Bea’s past threatens to come roaring out, she finds herself racing against the clock to pass the finish line before everything is exposed.
