Are you tired of billionaire romances? Never wanna see another one? Hold on, before you go… what if the WOMAN was the billionaire? Yeah, she’s the rich one, and the MMC has a sexy accent, a dirty mouth, a healthy ‘appetite’ 😉 and is sporting a leather jacket & bull whip (like Indy taught us any self-respecting archaeologist must have). Now that I have your attention…

I received a free copy of the e-book of this novel from Happily Booked PR and Irene Bahrd in exchange for my honest feedback. I have since purchased the entire series this book is part of because… trophy case!

Here’s my take on Unexpectedly Ruined by Irene Bahrd
Even if you took out all the spice (IDK who would want to because Irene Bahrd is SOOO good at it), the plot of this book is terrific. It keeps you just enough on your toes that you don’t expect the twist. You think you’ve figured it out but not quite. The plot is fantastic, the characters are phenomenal, and the steamy scenes are absolutely delicious (but maybe not appropriate for your grandma).

Amanda is a romance novelist who can’t stop thinking about the mystery man she met months ago in an NYC bar and spent an incredible night with. Luckily, Jack’s been having the same problem at his home in Scotland. When Amanda agrees to be the face of an investment in Jack’s archaeological project, she travels to Scotland to be a buffer between him and his venomous ex. As they work to unravel the mystery of the castle where Jack is working, things heat up – both between them and with the story of the family who once lived there.

Amanda & Jack are perfect (for each other) and you can’t help but root for them. I love the billionaire flip, that they didn’t do the miscommunication trope when a lot of authors would have used that to create tension (despite me screaming at fictional people to JUST HAVE A CONVERSATION!), and especially the push/pull between the couple. The couple who reads together stays together!
