“Rich Boy was witty, exciting and had the most intense slow burn romance I’ve read in a long time. ”
—Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times bestselling author
The Rich Boy, an all-new “do not miss” swoon-worthy standalone with off-the-charts chemistry from New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott, is available now!
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.

In The Rich Boy Kylie Scott puts her own unique spin on love for a touching story that shows her at her best.
This story started off with two struggling people trying to get by in life and finding a unique connection with each other that charted the course for them to embark on a sweet courtship. Isolated from their real lives their interactions during this time set the tone of their relationship for the entirety of this work. When Beck’s billionaire past caught up with him both he and Alice took their interest in each other to the next level as they committed to exploring their new and fragile feelings.
Beck’s devotion to his pursuit and emotional investment in Alice was staggering in its depth. He shook up his role of hero making human errors colored by the magnitude of his feelings for Alice. What made this character standout was not only was he authentic but he took ownership of his mistakes, always unerringly finding his way back to where his heart lay, Alice. Beck was a hero that was well intended and pure in his love even as at times he floundered in expressing it appropriately. He gave of his fortune and heart in equal large measures.
The character of Alice was as good as heroines get. She made no excuses for whom she was. Alice was so clear in her decisions even in moments of vulnerability, exhibiting doubts that most people could relate to. She did not try to make changes to herself that were superficial but ones that mattered showing her to be true to herself and those around her. At first glance Alice seemed like a good candidate for saving but the reality of the situation was Alice did not need rescuing as she was incredibly strong and ultimately was a savior in equal degrees to Beck.
Throughout this work this relationship remained stripped down to the basics even when surrounded by complications and opulence. This couple fell in love through friendship and put lust on the back burner which made this an interesting evolution. While hardly unattractive physically Beck and Alice dispelled the notion that heroes and heroines need to be in league with super models to be appealing to both readers and themselves. With well-executed emotional foreplay, distinctive gorgeous appearances and grounding flaws this couple brought individuality to Romancelandia.
Kylie Scott’s Romances are like old souls, they are deep, sensitive and introspective. She expertly see’s the heart with universal experience. This author’s writing is sophisticated in its simplistic messages that break down romance to everyday caring and living by showing the little things that grow into big things. There was a lovely inclusion in this work that blended in parts of Jane’s Austen’s Pride and Prejudice at key moments to this couple’s story that were comparable to the experiences of Elizabeth and Darcy’s relationship. Real and approachable Kylie Scott’s writing allows for everyone to find their HEA. The Rich Boy is worth a million stars and a spot on everyone’s TBR piles!
*I was given an advanced copy. All opinions expressed are my own.*
“You haven’t told me your story,” he says once we’re seated in a booth and have ordered.
“I finished my degree and realized it was basically good for nothing and there were next to no jobs available anyway. Or at least nothing that appealed. Teachers and librarians are fighting for every scrap of funding they can get while newspapers are folding. The publishing industry is going through serious cutbacks. Majoring in English Lit may have been a mistake.” I shrug. Truth is, I got stuck for various reasons. But this explanation is easier to swallow. “Figured if I was going to wind up serving then I’d like to do it somewhere I can walk along the beach now and then, without getting stuck in traffic for hours.”
He nods. “Makes sense.”
“I thought so. I’ll figure out what I want to do with my life eventually.”
“No rush. Good that you can take the time and space to figure things out for yourself without anyone pressuring you.”
“Just the student loans hanging over my head,” I say.
His answering smile is brief and small. “Grow up around here?”
“Close enough, San Bernardino,” I say. “What about you?”
“No, I’m half a country away from home and intend to keep it that way. Though maybe half a country away is still too close. I hear Iceland’s nice this time of year.”
I raise my brows in question.
“Family.” He shrugs. “What can you do?”
The waitress delivers our food, filling up the table with Beck’s order of half of the breakfast menu. Without hesitation, he proceeds to devour it all. If I ate that much, my ass wouldn’t fit in the seat.
“Want some?” He offers me a forkful of pancake, dripping with syrup. “It’s good.”
“I’m fine with my burger. Thanks.” And I’m curious as heck about his family, but pressing him further wouldn’t be polite. Dammit.
“So what are my future wife’s favorite hobbies and or interests?”
“Hmm.” I stick a fry in my mouth and chew, thinking it over. “Reading, films, music…the usual. You?”
“Lots of things.”
“I don’t know…hiking, rock climbing. Stuff like that.”
“So basically I like to sit still and you’re all about being busy and athletic. We have nothing in common.”
“No. Wait. I can change,” he jokes. “Give me another chance.”
“You shouldn’t have to change.” I swirl another fry in some ketchup. “I’m sure you’re perfectly fine just as you are.”
