For the romance lovers who are tired of the same old CEO billionaire in a suit stories the wait for a new and unconventional kind of rich bad boy is over. Wonderfully well written and executed by Jessica Clare (yup, the same author who brought reality TV to romance novels), Dirty Money shakes up the billionaire genre with its very unique brand of hero. I was fascinated by Boone Price’s brash and uncouth nature and charmed with his and Ivy’s romance.

Ivy grew up as Reba Smithfield and just as poor as Boone, but has reinvented herself as a sophisticated realtor to attract clients with deeper pockets. Boone Price and his brothers literally struck big when they found a vast oil well on their hunting land and instantly became billionaires.

Grossing $20 million a day doesn’t earn respect though and Boone is determined to have it starting by moving out of his trailer and buying the biggest property the lovely Ivy can find and while he’s at it he’s also resolved in having her as his fancy trophy wife. When he meets her face to face, her kindness and beauty make him want her heart as well. But what will he do when he finds out not only that her background is just the same as his but that she’s been lying all along?

As Boone boldly pursues Ivy stating his intentions to her outright, Ivy finds herself trapped between knowing that she’s deceiving a man who makes her smile and feel cherished and the burning attraction she feels towards him. She first tries to ignore him, then keep him at arm’s length but Boone is a single-minded man who won’t give up especially not when the tension between them crackles like spectacular 4th of July fireworks.

This very sexy lumberjack billionaire stole the spotlight. I loved Boone’s honest, outlandish caveman ways. He’s almost childlike, selfishly acting before thinking throwing money around to get what he wants without apology. His over the top wooing and good natured personality made this a very fun and entertaining read.

Dirty Money is the kickoff book in the Roughneck Billionaires series by Jessica Clare. It is a standalone contemporary romance told by both points of view with a happy ending.
