I liked the premise - the Billionaire is a female for a change. A Billionaire on the verge of a nervous breakdown - especially as Caroline is currently under the 'care' of her not so motherly mother.
After finding a dishevelled woman running towards him Flynn does all he can to calm her down. Their friendship quickly develops and each other finds the other intriguing and both in need of help.
Will Flynn be able to save himself and Caroline?
A treat to read - had me laughing and had me close to tears in a few parts.
After a particularly gruesome shouting match, Caroline hopped over the stone wall at the back of the garden and encountered Flynn Gifford, a clearly unkempt homeless man, picking up litter as an odd job. He's sweet and a little saucy with her, shaking her from her doldrums. Carrie wants to forget all her troubles--personal and professional--so she joins Flynn in the work, despite being barefoot and half-hysterical. They pass the time talking, and both open up; Carrie about her breakdown, and Flynn about his career in the Armed Service, and how he's AWOL after a mission went bad. The lack of judgment on either side is refreshing for both. As a favor, Carrie invites Flynn to return to her mum's house later, when she knows her mother will be gone, so he can get a shower and shave.
The attraction that had developed during their talk is only bolstered by increased company. I'd thought this book would be erotica, honestly, but it's more a straight romance. These two lost souls find each other at just the right moment. They each need support and comfort, and a little bit of protection, too. They pass a few days together, and it looks like Carrie's about to propose something wild, but before they can get too far Flynn does what he needs to do: account for himself with the service. He can't very well court a woman like Carrie if he's off the grid, can he? Plus, he's got loads of pride and wants to be able to make something of himself, other than a beggar boy-toy. Not that Carrie ever treated him as such. Her heart's broken when she finds him gone, but that break is necessary for both Carrie and Flynn to put their respective worlds in order.
I really liked this one. It was honest and practical, and still very sexy and emotional. These two get battered a bit in life, no matter their financial circumstances, and they're guarded. Giving confidence to a stranger was never in the plan, yet it worked so beautifully for those shining moments. Flynn's a stand-up guy, who won't let Carrie boss him around, though, and when he makes good on his promise to find her once he's made his amends I really felt for him. She doesn't make apologizing easy, but I understood that too! Her heart was torn up, and she's finally gotten over him, only to have him return?
Still, the reunion is sweet (after all the shouting and tears!) and the future looks brighter than ever before. It's tender and touching and real. I really enjoyed it!
I gotta say it is nice to finally see a Billionaire woman in a story. It is usually a Billionaire playboy trying to win the heart of some woman but not this time. This story could have actually happened. It seemed so real. The stress of being a CEO could lead you to unexpected places. Your mind is wide open for many new adventures and it seems like Carrie has just found her new adventure. Flynn is on his own adventure on the run but he never expected to run into someone that would change his life for the better. These two are perfect for each other but they really need to get their lives together before anything can happen. Sometimes we have to face our past in order to have a great future. I’m pretty sure these two are on the right track. I received this copy as a gift for an honest review.
