☆☆☆☆☆5 STAR - AMAZING, couldn't put it down, highly recommend (emotions bursting at the seams)
Caleb Blackstone is filthy rich with immense wealth, charm, success and nothing short of gorgeous. Caleb grew up with a prestigious education around wealthy circles of families. With only losing his father the previous year, he begins to question everything - money, women, elite snobs, and what his life should become.
Brooke Casterley has had nothing but one tragedy after another. After the death of her parents when she was just 15 years old, she was sent to America from England. Thrown into a different country, she found her home with her grandmother on Blackstone Island, outside of Boston. Brooke was raised much differently than Caleb and with much less. Their lives never touched, but have connections that neither saw coming.
From the moment Caleb lays his eyes on Brooke outside of a coffee shop, something ignites in him that catches him by surprise. His whole world begins to change and nothing is quite like it seems. After a few encounters, neither of them can deny their physical attraction and chemistry towards each other. Brooke never wanted a relationship and she was sure that she could not possibly be ready to get involved. Caleb never thought he would fall in love. Is it fate? Can their two worlds come together or will another tragedy strike? Can Caleb be the man that Brooke needs? Can Brooke allow her heart to feel?
There is no way that you could read Filthy Rich and not want to fall in love with Caleb. His sweet gestures, dedication, passion and desire was quite delectable. His character was brought to life by Raine Miller. As the story unfolded before my very hands, I felt as though I wanted to know these characters. And THAT, my dear followers is what a great author can do! Raine Miller hit a grand slam with this opening book to the Blackstone Dynasty series.
Caleb and Brooke's story is raw and genuine. Their journey to self discovery was enlightening. Coming from two different worlds brought many obstacles and neither backed down. Jealousy fired by someone of the past and truth was discovered in the end that left my jaw on the floor for a few moments with an ache to read the next installment of this series which is due to release 2017.
Bravo to Raine Miller for writing such a clever, hot romance with many twists that leave you craving more. Filthy Rich is more than just the next "romance novel." She has added so many layers that I predict will be a fantastic series that can not be put down!
I highly recommend getting this gem and adding it to your reading list. It can easily be read in just a few hours as I am sure it's not just me that would find it difficult to bookmark this story with the desire and "need to know" itch to get to the next page.
One of my favorite quotes from Filthy Rich:
"The idea that right now was the most time you had left to live of your life. This day, this hour, this minute of your life - was the greatest amount of time you had remaining. The time you had left only grew shorter... and so, more precious." - Filthy Rich (Blackstone Dynasty, book 1)
