Shy Girls Can’t Date Billionaires
by Milly Rose
YA Comedy, Romance


I never existed until the wrong guy took notice…

I was born shy. And near him, I fall apart. No wonder he can’t stand the sight of me.

After a fire destroys our home, my family is taken in by a billionaire tycoon. His mansion has countless bedrooms, yet my room is next door to his son, Thomas Ashworth III. Yes, he’s as pompous as the name suggests. And, for some reason, he hates my guts.

Even though his arrogance drives me crazy, his chiseled features turn me into a stammering, awkward mess. I hate being stuck with someone I can’t stand. And when he does something unexpectedly kind, it confuses my heart.

When I bump into him in the middle of the night, I’d never guess it lead to us sharing secrets.

He’s impossible to get out of my head. But he wouldn’t consider dating someone like me. Would he?

You will love Christie and Ash. They are stuck together in forced proximity, becoming practically roommates. He is a billionaire, alpha male type who is learning to love. She is the new girl in school, dealing with past trauma. Together they will go from enemies to lovers in an adorable young adult romance.

Sweet romance abounds in this cute read with lots of heart.

Christie's life is thrown on its head as a fire consumes everything her family owns. Until things get settled, her father's boss invites them to live in his mansion with him and his son. His son, however, is anything but enthused and makes his negative opinion about the setup clear. Things flip-flop, when Christie begins taking classes at his school, and she's not sure how to handle any of it.

The books opens with a huge hook as Christie faces the fire and has her life burn to the ground. It was no problem to sympathize with her as she tried to come to terms with everything, and totally understandable when the new situation pushed her way beyond her comfort zone. That the book is written from her point of view, her decisions and feelings were always clear and well laid out. It made it easy to root for her and warming to follow her as she learns to open up to those around her.

This is a enemy to friends romance with tons of sweet moments. Ash's initial dissatisfaction with Christie and her family invading his life was understandable, and while he did come across a bit harsh, wasn't extreme. I do wish this had been written from both sides, since Ash's actions might have been a little more sympathetic if his thoughts had been clear, but it still works well enough. The enemy to friend change happened a bit quick, but even this was still enjoyable with tons of sweetness piled on.

I enjoyed the light read and did find myself cheering for both of them.
