I’m the type of girl who’s given up on fairy tales. So when Beck – the hot new busboy at work – starts flirting with me, I know better than to get my hopes up. Happily ever afters aren’t for the average. I learned that the hard way.
But how can I be expected to resist a man who can quote Austen, loves making me laugh, and seems to be everything hot and good in this world?
Only there’s so much more to him than that.
Billionaire playboy? Check.
Troubled soul? Check.
The owner of my heart, the man I’ve moved halfway across the country to be with, who’s laying the world at my feet in order to convince me to never leave? Check. Check. Check.
But nobody does complicated like the one percent.
This is not your everyday rags-to-riches, knight-in-shining armor whisking the poor girl off her feet kind of story. No, this is much messier.

Beck and Alice certainly did give the swoony vibes from the get-go.
Talk about the rich boy laying it on thick when he met Alice and instantly started with his flirtatious banter with her and calling her his wife the moment they started becoming comfortable with each other, which was very quickly.
But when Beck needs to head back home and start his "real" life and accept his responsibilities, he asks Alice to join him but she's hesitant at first, not knowing what would await her if she decides to leave with him or not. When she makes up her mind and flies with the idea of joining him, she certainly finds herself immersed in a life that she never in a million years expected.
Alice was a great, strong-willed character who I adored from the beginning. She was quick-witted and a person would didn't accept nonsense from anyone. If someone tried to shame her, she was fast at rebuttal.
Beck, oh boy Beck...this boy certainly made my heart pitter-patter. He was the perfect alpha with a sensitive and soft edge to him, with the way he was with Alice just made me melt. They certainly were a great combination together and their relationship blossomed so quickly that it didn't even phase me that it was such a slow burn.
I definitely have to say that The Rich Boy was a very swoon-worthy read for me!
4 Heart Review by Ashley
I am downright giddy after finishing The Rich Boy. In true Kylie Scott form, I was given a strong, smart and sassy heroine and a hero that is drool worthy but also flawed.
The first meeting between Beck and Alice was a riot. The banter had me smiling like a loon. There aren't proper words to describe Beck's yum factor. He is kind and considerate. Quirky and charming. Patient to the point it nearly drove Alice mad. But he was also quasi hiding something. But when his past came calling, he knew he had to step up.
What a whirlwind of another universe Alice found herself in when she followed her heart and went to Denver. I liked her before the upheaval of her life, but the way she conducted herself in her 'new life' was brilliant. It made me love her. I loved that she knew who she was and who she wasn't. She knew what she stood for and what she wouldn't. How she refused to change who she was to fit in. How when pushed, she shoved back with grace and class. And when Beck messed up, because lets face it, he's a man who isn't used to not getting his way, she made him work for it. Earn it. Give her what she deserved.
The Rich Boy was so much more than poor girl gets swept off her feet. Yes, she was swept up in Beck, but it was him she wanted not his notoriety or money. It was a hard lesson for him to learn, but for Alice, he would do anything. She was worth the work. Their love was worth everything.
