His new hire has a secret…
As far as Nina Beaumont is concerned, money ruins everything. Leave it to her wealthy family to screw up her professional life and her personal life. When she crashes and her car sinks, sending her identification and all her belongings spiraling into the watery abyss, Nina sees her chance to escape.
And stumbles into a job with the hottest man she’s ever met…as his maid.
Between running an inn, caring for his grandmother, and trying to keep the dirty-dealing Beaumont Corporation from stealing his land, Joe Farina’s plate is full. He doesn’t have time for romantic entanglements—especially not with the suspiciously bad maid he just hired, no matter how much he needs her…both in and out of his bed.
Screwing with her life is one thing, but Nina’s not about to let her family screw with Joe. That is, if she doesn’t lose him when he finds out who she really is.
It’s lust not love…
I agreed to review His Millionaire Maid by Coleen Kwan, because the overall premise sounded interesting. And initially, it appeared to be an okay book, but as I read on, I found several problems with this story. First of all, Nina seemed to create her own problems, and her reasons for leaving her life behind weren’t believable. Next, the relationship between Joe & Nina seemed to be purely physical, and I wasn’t convinced that they had a real connection. And every chance Nina got she was whipping her clothes off—even at inappropriate times without caring who was around. There was one scene in which I found Nina’s behavior so distasteful—immature—inappropriate that I did not finish this book.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
