Emotionally unavailable doesn’t even begin to describe my new fake boyfriend. He’s cold. He’s distant. He has more defenses than a nuclear missile silo. And he’s the ultimate catch of the century. At least, according to his bank statement.
My job’s simple: Keep Hayes Rutherford’s matchmaking relatives and all interested ladies away from the cranky, grumpy, walled-off heir to my favorite movie empire, and in return, he won’t ruin my life over a teensy, tiny little misunderstanding.
But the more I sneak past Hayes’s walls and fences, the more I realize that while we might be from different worlds, we have more in common than either of us expected. The man under all the glitz, glamour, and dollar signs could be the real love of my life.
But you know what they say about fake dating a billionaire—it’s all fun and games until the scandals start.
The Last Eligible Billionaire is a swoony, laugh-out-loud romance featuring a botched wax job, a woman in over her head, a man in over his heart, and the sweetest misguided dog to ever play matchmaker…or at least make sure these two anti-love birds never have clothes when they get out of the shower.
I haven't yet had the pleasure of reading a Pippa Grant rom-com before, and I am so glad that changed with The Last Eligible Billionaire, her newest release. What I discovered is that Pippa Grant writes with humour and heart, and she has made a lifelong fan out of me. TLEB is a sweet and funny romantic comedy, that also has plenty of emotional moments that grab you and keep you glued to the page. It starts off with a hilarious meet cute and doesn't let you go for the entire book. The Grumpy/Sunshine opposites attract trope was employed perfectly with Begonia and Hayes. Begonia is fun and upbeat and is always trying to see the good in the bad. Hayes is ornery and closed off, but there is definitely more to him than his prickly shell. It was great seeing Begonia slowly unravel his multiple layers. They are a great match and were a lot of fun to read. I can't wait to read more from Pippa Grant - she truly is a new favourite for me.
