Caymen and her mom are very under-whelmed by rich people. The only thing they can be counted on for is spending money on things no one needs. Caymen knows Xander is rich and a first wants nothing to do with him. When he keeps showing up though, he starts to grow on her. Caymen knows that her mother will never approve though and she can't really explain why. Honestly she isn't even sure why her mother's hatred for the rich runs so deep. The more Caymen hangs out with Xander the more she realizes that you can always judge a man by his wallet.

I didn't think this one would wow me, but it did. It was a really good story. It was also quite giggle-inducing. I was often chuckling to myself at the exchanges between Caymen and Xander. It was also quite steamy between those two. Nothing too explicit, but definitely enough to make you fan yourself giddily.

It was very interesting finding out the real root of all evil (and it's not money) at least from Caymen's mom's perspective. It was not quite what I was expecting and I'm glad for that.

This novel definitely makes me want to read more by the author, though honestly I just want to re-read this one. Definitely check it out if your looking for something a little steamy, even more funny and a little tiny splash of surprise.

First Line:
"My eyes burn a hole in the page."

Favorite Line:
"Then he takes me by the waist and lifts me onto the counter."
