Taylor Vanderfelt had a great upper crust life in LA until her father committed suicide, unable to handle being scammed and his company on the edge of bankruptcy. Taylor's brother had move to South America and started a family there. Now all Taylor's mother can think about is get Taylor married off to a rich bachelor so she can life the high-life again, and Taylor kowtowed under the pressure and started an online profile on a "date a millionaire" website, and found two prospects... Davis, who was an investment banker but to whom Taylor felt no spark, and Blake, who operates out of Alaska, a former navy SEAL, who gave no further background, but Taylor felt an instant connection to Blake. Mother wanted Taylor to immediately latch onto Davis and Godforbid "should you screw this up, you ungrateful daughter...", as well as denounced Blake as an ingrate uncouth fisherman. Taylor reluctantly agreed to go with Davis to a society fundraiser. But the day before that, Blake showed up in LA, took Taylor out to the fanciest restaurant in town, then introduced her to passionate lovemaking in the grandest suite of a local 6-star hotel. Taylor already promised Davis the society fundraiser, so Taylor feigned a "family obligation". When a photo of her and Davis at the fundraiser appeared in print, Blake stormed back to Alaska, but not until after sending her a scathing Dear Jane letter. Taylor, totally distraught, sought advice from her best friends, who advised her that they'll drag her along to a wedding in Seattle, then they'll cover for her while she went North to Alaska and find Blake and beg him to take her back...
The romance is fine, and having the girl to make a grand gesture to find the guy was great, and perfectly fitting within the context! Obviously nothing ever goes right, and things get exciting involving a bear... then both Davis *and* Taylor's mom arrive in Alaska hoping to take her back to mainland! Then Blake revealed his secret... Nah, I ain't telling. Unfortunately, that's somewhat a cliche revelation.
So why am I giving this 4/5 instead of 5/5? Two reasons. One... the plot, despite the fresh twists in the middle, was a bit of a cliche ending. And Two... there's nothing about this guy that says ex-SEAL. It's just a label, and it did not seem to have affected the way he acted. He could have been any generic alpha guy. It's almost fashionable trope for romance authors to label someone either SEAL or ex-SEAL, and when the label was randomly thrown on an alpha guy without using it in some way, that's just lame trope-ing. Still, the book is enjoyable enough to read.
Her Mother Beatrice Vanderfelt, now demands that Taylor find a rich man to rescue the business, she refused but Mom signed her up with a billionaire matchmaking sight.
Beatrice's plan backfires--in a big way--when Taylor finds Blake Cunningham, an ex-Navy SEAL who was as far from the clean cut, cookie-cutter trust fund baby as she could have ever imagined.
Blake had his own secret, but there was a connection between Blake and Taylor, will they make it, will they survive her mothers plans?
Loved this story. Proves money doesn't buy happiness!!
