Title: The Forgotten Heiress
This book was kindly provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A forgotten heiress inherits a crumpling empire… as she struggles to protect herself from the ruthless billionaire who is seeking to salvage it
Raised by a guardian in Ireland, Olivia Grey is shocked when the secret details of her birth are leaked to the media with the unexpected death of her father. Drawn into her estranged family, the shy and reclusive clothing designer finds her way through the media spotlight, an imploding empire and the expectations of the elite New York financial world. As she tries to come to terms with her new life, she finds herself attracted to her father’s bitter rival, Fionn Lynch.
Fionn Lynch is a hot, obscenely wealthy math genius with a razor sharp business mind who seeks out Olivia to squash the media speculation around the family. He must convince her to come to New York and allow herself to be thrown into the chaotic and challenging financial world. However, Olivia is more of a challenge than he expected and he has to change his game plan if he is to succeed in salvaging the company he helped to build.
This book felt really rushed, I felt like I was constantly being pushed from one scene to the next without any time to reflect or get involved. It felt like the author had procrastinated on her deadline and just hurriedly threw some words together, only to resolve everything in a handful of chapters at the end
The author did do a good job painting the scene of her less then pleasant child hood, one that showed in her adult personality. A lot of us forget that our lives are shaped and formed by the interactions and lessons we learn as children and young adults.
If you are looking for a quick read while on the beach or wasting time, then this is the book for you.
