Product Description

***$2.99 for a limited time***

When BBW Sophie begins her new job as chef in William Blackwell's mansion, she wants a new start. Her last job led to a romance with her billionaire boss which ended in heartbreak. This time, she swears she'll stay away from workplace romance...a vow that's put to the test when she meets the enigmatic Rhys, one of the mansion's gardeners.

William "Rhys" Blackwell might be a billionaire, but he still loves digging in his gardens. When he meets Sophie he feels instantly attracted to her. But Sophie says she doesn't want to date anyone from the mansion, and Rhys knows that goes double for him, so he keeps his identity quiet. Maybe if she gets to know him first, she'll change her mind.

In the midst of the growing attraction between Sophie and Rhys, they have other problems to deal with, too...a lawsuit, a billionaire ex-lover and more. In the end, there's just one question: what are they willing to risk for a chance at love?

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Original Twist! 15 October 2014
By Ohmybookgoddess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Loved this awesomely sensual and sweet billionaire romance! Rhys gives things a great twist chasing Sophie's heart because his wealth isn't revealed at first. Sophie has to fall through the man, which was a refreshing change from most billionaire books where the heroine is swept off her feet by power and prestige from the very beginning.

This story is on the sweet side but it's steamy in parts. I adored the way Danielle Duncan creates a convincing atmosphere and two realistic characters. The passion between these two really shines as this story heats up. Great to the very last page!

I'll definitely be looking for more from Duncan's skilled pen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, fun, well written 18 September 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a Sweet, well written read, good for a relaxing afternoon. The romance between the main characters is heartfelt and well written and completely believable, and there's a slew of fun side characters without being so many that they drag the plot down and steal focus from the main couple. This is a complete story, too, no cliffhanger, so no waiting for the wonderful ending.

Danielle is a great writer, able to weave together a complex plotline with believability and beautiful writing. I'll be checking out more of her work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Billionaire Romance 1 February 2014
By Lexi Q - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book left me with a big smile on my face :) Sophie and Rhys have sizzling chemistry. Sophie is reluctant to become involved in a relationship when she thinks Rhys is the gardener, then when she discovers he's really her billionaire boss, she is even more reluctant. But Rhys doesn't give up so easily. He's the perfect alpha hero. The side characters are interesting, too. The insufferable mother, the womanizing brother, the ex-boss and the butler (who reminded me of Mr. Carson from Downton Abbey). The plot moves along nicely and comes together for a very satisfying conclusion. Very fun read.
3.0 out of 5 stars A Cinderella story for grown-ups. 23 August 2014
By Gigi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's been my observation in the recent past that any book with 'billionaire' in the title will usually be about a very alpha-male hero who is into BDSM, but not in this case! This was a squeaky-clean grown-up fairy tale.
Rhys, our hero, is as the title states, 'The reluctant billionaire'. He would rather be puttering in his garden than making money in corporate America.
Sophia, is his chef, and the woman he finds irresistible.
Although our hero/heroine are kind of likeable, they felt fairly one-dimensional to me. There were a few token conflicts in the story, but unfortunately even they didn't help the story much.
As I read through this book, I kept expecting things to heat up and I don't necessarily mean in a sexual manner, I just wanted something more in the way of a plot! I even thought that since that little something wasn't there, that this might be the first book in a series and the writer was just trying to string us along, but that wasn't the case.
Maybe our writer lost her way by trying to put too much antagonism into the story. maybe she should have stuck to one 'villain' and one interesting story-line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sophie and Rhys are the cutest couple!! 21 March 2014
By M. Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Oh, I loved this book so much...the cute way they meet where she thinks he's just a gardener reminds me of the secret billionaire shows! BBW romances are hit and miss for me, cause I don't like the overly insecure characters that moan and groan all the time. Sophie is a strong, smart character and she can definitely hold her own against Rhys!

The other characters in the book are really fleshed out and although there are some mean ones (Ahem! the brother!), they all made it feel very real. And Sophie and Rhys have sparks fly between them from the beginning, so when they finally get together it makes it all worth it :) Great book, would recommend to anyone who likes a good BBW romance!
