The Rich Boy, an all-new slow-burn standalone with white-hot chemistry and witty banter from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, is out now!
4 Beloved Crowns
Kylie has given us a modern-day fairytale that is sure to set your soul of fire. Her take on class differences and societal views on this really opens your eyes to how different types of people view the world. And ultimately how much of yourself do you want to lose when you’re trying to fit into a world that you weren’t born into.
“That was nice,” he says in a low voice.
“Yes, it was.” He looks down, taking in the way our bodies are pressed together.
“Baby Jesus would be appalled.”
“I do so hate disappointing infant gods.”
I loved Beck, his personality and sense of humor were addictive. I could definitely see how Alice was so smitten right off the bat. Their banter was light hearted and fun, it just flowed easily between them, giving you a sense of rightness. The way the Beck was raised and grew up was completely opposite of how Alice was raised, and it shows in how he handles situations. Instead of trying to work them out or find ways to make it better he tends to just throw money at it, which is one of the main issues between them. This I feel highlights the biggest difference between them. When you have money to throw at problems you never really have to learn to try and solve them. Whereas when you don’t have the means to get rid of problems like that, you develop an ability to work through the problems and find alternative solutions. Beck is soft hearted and really is the sweetest/swooniest guy ever, but his inability to stop throwing money around is prevalent and disheartening at times, but understandable given his situation.
“You’re beautiful when you pout,” he says, fingers trailing up and down my arms. “The prettiest pouting, barely dressed sex monster in the room.”
Alice is phenomenal, I absolutely loved that she did not lose her sense of self after being thrust into this unknown world full of pretentious rich assholes. Even when they were trying to fix her up to their standards so to speak she still did not give in easily and kept giving things back. It without a doubt showed that she was not there for his money she was there because she loved him. I can’t imagine how easy it could be to get caught up in this world of riches and lose yourself entirely, so to watch as she holds onto to herself and pushes back had me smiling throughout.
My lungs are laboring, heart pounding, and he growls. Actually growls into my mouth. Fucking hell. Maybe he did start the rumor, but he’s an animal just the same.
Kylie has created a beautifully written fairytale that will sweep you off your feet, whilst giving you a severe case of blue balls. Seriously I was ill prepared for the Slow Burn romance portion of this book. She has written this book with a deep sense of honesty in regards to how different classes of people view the world around them and those in it. It’s heartbreaking at times and utterly frustrating during others, but you could see it happening in just that way. I think that’s why Beck and Alice are absolute perfection together, you can feel their connection in every moment they share together, watching them navigate this new relationship and life changing expectations and experiences.

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.
