Series: Westerly Billionaire #4
on August 14, 2018
A billionaire silver-screen hero finds a real-life heroine in this sizzling romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello.
Sage Revere follows her instincts, which have led to an oddball career as a plant psychologist. As a side project, she also helps strangers find happiness. Sage has a gift for knowing who needs her help, and the brooding hunk of a loner she meets in a coffee shop certainly fits the bill. She can feel it.
On-screen, Eric Westerly is the hottest superhero there is. Offscreen, he’s out of rehab; incognito in London; and reevaluating his life, his career, and his broken family ties. All he wants is to be alone. Then along comes some daft plant whisperer who gets under his skin. She’s also sweet, sexy, and irresistible. But what’ll happen when she finds out who he is—that underneath the gray spandex, he’s just a regular guy with a Batcave?
But Eric isn’t the only one with a few secrets. And when the masks come off, Sage and Eric are going to have to trust each other if they want a Hollywood happy ending.
A romantic comedy that broke my heart and made me cry!
Another day in paradise, ladies. First of all, it’s the second arc i read this week, part of a series I haven’t read yet and I wish I did. I need to read the first three books asap.
Let me tell you how this managed to make me cry.
It’s the story of “two lost souls who found acceptance and comfort in each other”. She’s a plant psychologist (what an amazing job to have! – kudos to the author for this “novelty”) and he’s a big Hollywood star, trying to get his life on track. He meets her, while wearing the disguise he created to be able to go out in public. She gets his pain from the moment she sets her eyes on him, so of course she sets her mind to “help him”, since her purpose in life is to be happy and make the others around you find their happiness. She helps them achieve that.
Sage is one of the most beautiful fictional persons I had the pleasure to meet. Her soul is beautiful, the way she lives her life, the way she sees the good in people, the way she gives second and third chances so easily, how she stands up for herself when necessary, but still in a gentle way, not hurting the others feelings and I could go on forever.
He’s broken. That’s it. The only way to describe him. He completed a rehab, isolated himself from his big dysfunctional family, but stumble upon the love of his life, who took him out of his shell and they found their HEA together.
I cried because of their pain when dealing with their families. I cried because Sage is amazing, despite having such horrible parents. I cried because Eric hurt her, but she was still standing strong and finally, I cried when I got the advice how to manage the hurtful things people say to you.
In case you missed my point, this is a book you don’t want to miss. It’s not your typical rom com, full of clichés and vain characters. It’s simply a beautiful life lesson.
Ruth Cardello, thank you! I promise to read your other books as well.
