The Price Of Scandal (Bluewater Billionaires)
by Lucy Score
“I’m the fixer your board hired to clean up your mess.”
“So you show up here, break into my house, and take a bath?”
Emily Stanton’s perfect life just became a disaster. She has a trust fund brother looking for a handout, a father who is more board member than dad, and a mother who thinks she should give up on this whole billionaire CEO thing and meet a man with a pre-nup and a yacht.
Oh, and then there’s that “misunderstanding” with law enforcement witnessed by Miami’s paparazzi. Now her billion-dollar deal is on the line, and there’s a naked man in her bathtub who claims he’s going to make all her problems disappear.
Charming—and happy to bend the rules when necessary—Derek Price has made a living polishing the tarnished images of the rich and famous. He’s never lost, and he never takes clients to bed. Until the dazzling Emily. Derek promised her a win and offered up a lifetime supply of orgasms as part of the deal. But if he can’t stop her enemies, he’ll end up losing much more than he bargained for.
Author Notes: An enemies-to-allies-to-lovers workplace romcom with a meet-nude, four lady billionaire BFFs, a hero whose many talents include styling hair and picking pockets, the best dang drag queen brunch in Miami, and a shameless romance novelist cameo.
The Price of Scandal is the first book in the Bluewater Billionaires series by Lucy Score. I did this a bit wrong and read the fourth book the series as it was by one of my favourite authors Pippa Grant. When I realised it was a series I decided to go back and check out the other books in this series. It was my first read from Lucy Score and she did not disappoint!
Emily Stanton has the perfect life, well looking in from the outside that is. She is a CEO of her own company, she is smart and beautiful and also a billionaire! One date for public appearance has her in jail and a scandal she can’t afford on her hands. Enter Derek Price, the fixer, great at this job he is out to prove he is the man to fix Emily’s problems. But along the way he can’t help but fall for the woman.
“Do you still steal?” A smile flickered across his face. “Only when absolutely necessary,” he said, slipping a hand into his suit jacket. Oh, God. “Is that my father’s…” “Wallet. Yes. It seems he left it behind. Pity.”
“You, Emily Stanton, are one-of-a-kind. It would be a damn shame if you waste one more second of pretending to be something you’re not to make someone else more comfortable. Be yourself in all situations. Wear your red lipstick into the lab. Address your board in kickboxing gear. Take a day off. Cut your damn hair when you feel like it. You’re in charge. And you’re going to win.”
These two has such great chemistry and was a pleasure to read their story. My only issue with this book was I knew a mile off who the “Badie” was, it was plain to see from near enough the start. But that aside a very enjoyable read and I will defiantly be picking up more of Lucy Score’s books.
