“With a wonderfully seductive story—not to mention an absolutely delicious hero—Filthy Rich by Virna DePaul is an absolute must read!”—New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner
“DePaul spins a familiar romantic setup into a web of seductive intrigue and sizzling romance in her latest contemporary love story, set against the skyscrapers of Manhattan. . . . The twists and turns of the fast-paced plot are delightful, and the book is filled with page-scorching heat. The dominant, rich hero and strong, capable heroine break away from stereotypes in a subtle yet definite manner, making their story entirely believable.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

For starters, one of the first thing I noticed was Ms. DePaul's almost constant use of repeated words in close proximity to each other. This is a good sign of New-Writer syndrome. There would be sentences like these..."She was very excited due to the overwhelming cheers of the excited group." Or, "She pushed open the door and saw the vase. The wind blew in and pushed it off the table." (Totally not in the book. Just showing examples).
Also, there was an almost mechanical quality to they characters's speech, the way they spoke felt stilted and bordering on scripted (no pun intended). Nothing felt natural or authentic.
And finally was ALL the telling and not showing. I would have loved for Ms. DePaul to have cut out some superfluous scenes and have more depth to the ones she needed. Firstly, we wouldn't have to simply read that Cara saw her brother Glenn and get to experience their visit in active writing (rather than passively).
Well, that's my opinion, for what it's worth.
Brandon I really like. Charming, smexy and playful, his character was a joy. He has his secrets but instead of coming off as a rich, snobby jerk, I found him very down to earth. And then there’s Cara. She really had me on the fence of like/dislike. I found her to be very smart and a likable enough character. Things between Brandon and her were interesting as well. I enjoyed their banter and the sex. It was her yes/no, want/can’t flip/flopping back and forth that I found grating. You want to stand on your own two feet? Got it. Your dad got screwed over and you want to redeem him. Fine by me. You don’t want to depend on anybody but Brandon is sexy as sin but he’s your boss but you didn’t know it when you kissed him? But… But… But… It just had me wanting to shake her and tell her ‘Honey, fish or cut bait’.
The story itself I really enjoyed. The whole whodunit was spun very well. There was plenty of plot twists to keep everything rolling along quickly. Add to that a list of sleazy and/or suspicious characters that had me guessing until the very end. Really fooled me when the real bad guy was exposed. On top of the ‘bad’ guys was other secondaries, mainly Brandon’s sisters, that I enjoyed. Their input and sisterly banter had me smiling. Despite all the yes/no from Cara, Filthy Rich was a really good book to read. Ms. DePaul’s fans are going to eat this one up.
I received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.
