It was weirdly written, had a a hard time getting over all the commas and what seemed to be unnecessary explanations.

Sacha is a 29 year old divorcee with her own interior design company, life is pretty good for Sacha when we meet her, and then came Lucas! Lucas is a wealthy man devoted to his family upon setting eyes on Sacha he falls for her, but all isn't smooth sailing and they both come close to walking away. But love conquers all and we get our HEA.

I liked this book but I didn't love it, the story was good but it lacked in chemistry between the stars of the book. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It’s not for me
This book just don’t do it
What with the interaction between h&H utterly cant get me stick to the book

Couldn't put it down

The story line was amazing and i had trouble putting the book down so i could sleep. There were very few grammatical issues and at one point the author switched the names of Maddie and Larrisa around which made it confusing a bit but other then that it was a really good read and i would recommend this book of you like the arrogant guy humble girl style of books.

4 Stars
I received a free copy of the steamy New Zealand set novel The Millionaire Next Door: The Millionaire Family Ties book one by Cheryl Phipps and this review was given freely.
A bittersweet story of love and reconciliation with a lot of family drama, some twists, and some mildly to medium steamy scenes. Contains the dark undertones of living with cancer, renal failure, mental illness, and substance abuse.

Scarred by the betrayal of her younger sister Larissa and

Sachs is an interior designer and while her neighbors are on vacation, they allow a cousin, Lucas, to temporarily stay until a cottage he bought is up and running to sustain his sister after she gets released from the hospital after the majority of her cancer treatments have finished.

Lucas is the millionaire in this storyline who is immediately attracted to Sachs and hires her to work on the cottage and other development projects he has in the works. She essentially has 8 weeks to complet

An enjoyable light read about a recently divorced woman who reluctantly falls in love with the handsome and very rich man staying at her neighbor's house. At first she resists but the sexual urge and energy is too strong and she relents to her passion. Life becomes complicated when her sister with whom she has not been on speaking terms moves in with her lover's sister. The sister's relationship or lack thereof is resolved in an unusual manner and I am left unconvinced that the sister has truly ...more

Interesting romance. Lucas was very ambivalent in his feelings and behaviour so I could understand why Sacha is so confused. Having said that I was impatient with Sach's overall attitude and her naievity. She too was sending mixed signals. I loved how she stood up for herself and stuck to her principles. The subplot with her sister and Maddie added to the story , gave it some depth. It kept me rivetted when I should have been sleeping. I would certainly recommend this book and this author. ...more

A little empty

I enjoyed the story but there seemed to be something missing, causing it to feel a bit empty. There was the normal attraction between Lucas and Sasha but I think it was more just lust. They didn’t seem to share too much personal information and tip toed around each other claiming their work kept them too busy for a relationship,

Good story!

This story was very sweet and romantic! I really enjoyed it!
However, there were quite a few spelling and formatting errors that would pull me out of the story. Maybe I’m weird but it made it hard to focus on the story when a new paragraph could start in the middle of a sentence.

Well done

Actually a very good read. Limited sex scenes,almost clean, and a lot of melodrama. It’s been well proof read-not perfect but overall a good job. Poor proofing has become an issue for me recently as it reflects shoddy work. This story was well developed with believable characters in manageable numbers.

Mixed emotions

I am not sure how I feel about this story. At times it was ok, then frustrating, then sweet. I didn't really like her and he was kind of a jerk. Then the ending? Quite unbelievable. The relationship was hardly there for how it ended.

A brother that needed a date at the last minute, for his sister's wedding. He literally falling over a woman that intrigues him, and proves to be so much more.
A wedding that goes terribly wrong, but a relationship that starts to blossom.
Another excellent read!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Lucas and Sasha. They were two people who were meant to be together after all they had been through. I cannot wait to read the next book.

I felt pulled in too many directions and for the wrong reasons with this one. I felt like I was riding on a pendulum with several of the characters, and it really never came together for me.

This book had a very good storyline, but it was too drawn out. Interesting developments but just the wrong way to her someone to try to enjoy this book.

Awesome read

This is a great book and I enjoyed the story line until the very end. It tells how life can get so mixed up and love will somehow find a way.
This was tedious and the main characters had no chemistry. I also felt the h was weak and the H a steamroller. Life is too short so dnf
