Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.
Shane Olson, who previously dated Priscilla’s sister, Margaret, isn’t opposed to a marriage of convenience for the sake of furthering his business interests, but Priscilla – with her wild ways – is just about the last woman he’d choose to marry.
In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.
Review by Emma-Louise Lewis on behalf of KFF
The Bohemian and the Businessman; a title that truly is the definition of just how many differences there are between Priscilla Story and Shane Olson.
“Wild child” Priscilla finds herself in a sticky situation. Pregnant and single, facing losing her inheritance, if she doesn’t marry before her secret is exposed.
“I’m not, she wanted to scream, fisting her hands by her sides and blinking back tears. I’m not even close to okay. I’m having a baby, and when our father finds out, he’ll disown me. My allowance is almost gone. I’ll have nowhere to go…
Hard working Shane, craves to be in the top tier of Story Imports…
“You can’t be a vice president here unless you’re family.”
“I’m not talking about the girls. I need the right man for the job.”
“A son-in-law, I need a son-in-law who can start taking over the reins!”
Priscilla comes up with the idea that they should marry. Solve her issue and Shane’s in one fell swoop.
Shane was a multifaceted character who broke my heart and rebuilt it so many times, I had this overwhelming desire to just tuck him in my pocket and keep him safe. Shane Olson is also a complex character, who on the surface comes across as arrogant and has no sense of humour. Who Shane really is, is much more complicated and layered. Honestly, somewhere in the midst of all the drama this book throws at the reader, I fell fast and hard for the inexperienced Shane Olson; his baby blue eyes especially.
The villain in this book is evident…Douglas Story the arrogant, sexist, vile father of Priscilla and her sisters. Douglas Story was like a bad smell you can’t clear from your nose. I have never, ever read a book where there was a character that was such a potential menace to me literally throwing my kindle across the room.
“…always wanted a boy. A son. Someone like you.
Instead I got them. A mouthy rebel, a shrinking violet, an airhead, a hippie and a big baby. Five girls.”
The beauty of the love between Priscilla and Shane is breath taking.
Maybe life is like this sometimes for some lucky people, he thought: After years and years of nothing special, someone miraculous walks into your life, and in the space of a few weeks, everything changes. You get married. You fall in love. Quickly. All at once. Without any warning. And the thing is, if you longed for it but never saw it coming, the depth of your gratitude leave you speechless, humbled you, changes you from the inside out. Because in one perfect flash of grace, everything you ever wanted is suddenly yours, even though you doubted something this good would ever happen to you.
From the front cover to the last words, I was enthralled. Carried away on a journey I was so sure was going to go blow up in their faces. Priscilla and Shane are committed and rock solid partners from a certain point early-ish in the book. I loved how they leaned on each other and supported each other. This book was the true definition of unconditional love.
