THE BILLIONAIRE SECRET #4

THE BILLIONAIRE'S SECRET #4                  KATHLEEN O'BRIEN

The Billionaire's Secret by Kathleen O'BrienHigh School art teacher Sophie Smith is usually the most honest of women. But when her dearest friend and mentor asks her to be her stand-in on a two-week vacation at an Amalfi Coast luxury resort, she won’t let her down… even if it means posing as a rich, pampered socialite. 

As it turns out, Sophie could get used to this, especially handsome, enigmatic gardener Declan Muldoon who’s strangely more thrilling than any of the billionaires buzzing around. She ends up falling for him—hard.

Then Sophie discovers she’s not the only one pretending. Declan’s gardener gig is temporary. He’s actually the black sheep of a very wealthy, powerful family, a man who appears to be in need of an heiress.

An heiress exactly like Sophie is pretending to be…

MY REVIEW:
     Sophia Smith was on a trip of a lifetime.  All made possible by her 68 year old mentor and friend Millie.  You see Millie never married or had children.  She was however a sculptor as career that never really made it but she saved for this trip of luxury.  Millie this women from Boston planned a two week stay at the elegant Hotel dei Fiori the pride of Isola del Sole, a Jewel of an Island new the Amalfi Coast in Italy.  Basically Millie wanted to play the part of being a rich bitch.
     Unfortunately, the cancer she had from last year came back which meant another round of chemo.  So, Millie recruited Sophie to take her place and play the part.  Upon arrival on the first day she meets the landscape architect for the Fiori Declan Muldoon.  Whom she seems to feel an instant connection too.  Yet, the first two days this gold-digger Gin Blakely ex-commercial jock occupies her time.
     Declan didn’t know why it was affecting him so.  It’s not like he has time to really visit or date her with getting the hotel grounds ready for Rocco’s wedding.  Not only that he was just lucky to get away from his ex-fiancée just about a month ago as well as his family.  There was just something about Sophia that intrigued him but he knows she was lying about some factor of her life but what?
     Sophia so wanted to tell Declan what and why she was there.  In fact she had slipped up a few times and she was sure he noticed and in fact he had.  Being all the deceit he was just coming off of from his own family and ex-fiancée he didn’t want to get romantically involved.
     Sophia had come for her dear friend also to heal her wounded heart from the humiliating break up with her fiancée who cheated on her.  He wanted her to think about taking him back which was not going to happen again.   Like Declan she could feel this invisible pull toward one another.  So, when he kissed her that night on the balcony she was a goner.  If truth be told so was he.
     Can the relationship go anywhere with both of them holding back some very important parts of their lives?  Or will their bodies fall victim to their sexual needs to be loved and held by someone?
     I totally enjoyed that Sophia was doing this for her friend Millie.  That she was sharing in such detail from smells to textures.  In a lot of stories this would have drove me crazy but in this context it was so endearing to the characters.  Very well done.  I give this 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
