The Reclusive Billionaire

About the book: Lucas Scott, a world-renowned microbiologist, is desperate to find a cure for the butterfly flu before it spreads. Hounded by the media, he escapes to his houseboat in Santa Barbara where he meets a vivacious veterinarian with a penchant for taking in strays. While he searches for the key to unlocking the butterfly flu, Becca somehow unlocks his analytical heart.
Becca Lee isn't impressed with her new neighbor. His clothes are constantly wrinkled and he's grumpier than a cat with digestive problems. However, Luke isn't easy to brush off. He's always around, has a magnificent mind, and is full of surprises. But, what she can't figure out is why her instincts tell her to trust this rouge billionaire. It doesn't take long to realize he is the only one alive who can save the world and Becca has to make a choice--open her heart or watch Luke sail off into the sunset.


My review: This is the first in a new series of Destination Billionaire Romances. I love the way that each of these books will travel to a new and exotic location. This one is set in Santa Barbara and I loved the way that the whole book had kind of a California vibe to it. And how fun is it that both Becca and Luke live in houseboats on the ocean?  Sounds like kind of an idyllic life to me!

I loved Becca in this book, she's a vet, my very favorite thing about her is the way that she takes in stray animals, gets them ready to be part of a family and then finds a family for them. That's kind of what she does for Luke in this book too.

Luke's a microbiologist, he's been studying the infamous Butterfly Flu, but when his sister died after having one of his company's new treatment for the disease he ended up having to leave to get away from all of the fingers pointing in accusation at him. And he is grumpy too, the first several times that he and Becca meet, she's kind of amazed by just how grumpy he can be. I love the way that she's able to bring out the kind hearted man that Luke really is and to see the value that is in him, even before he was kind to her. 

This is a cute romance that I didn't want to put down! I can't wait for more of the series!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

You can check out this book and all of the ones coming up on Gelato Books website.
