Blog Tour and Book Review: The Billionaire's Private Scandal

The Billionaire’s Private Scandal

by Jenna Bayley-Burke 
Publication Date: July 10, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Indulgence, Contemporary, Romance



Megan Carlton’s secret affair with financier Brandon Knight ended when he pulled off a hostile takeover of her family’s hotel empire and then kissed another woman. Broke and alone, Megan starts a new life and learns to stand on her own, then Brandon finds her serving coffee and surviving on tips and tries to pull her back into her old life and his arms. She thought she was over him, and she certainly can’t ever trust him again. But what her head knows and her heart feels are two different things.
Brandon was used to always getting what he wanted, then the woman he loves disappeared without a word. When he finds her months later working as a barista, he wonders if she’s suffering from amnesia. Getting a scalding Americano to the chest proves she recognizes him, but she’s got the situation—and him—all wrong. Now all he has to do is prove it.


My thoughts: 

This was another case of me liking the male lead, Brandon, WAY more than the female lead (Megan). As you can tell from the synopsis, she has reason to break things off with him, but severing a 7 year relationship without talking to the person is not only harsh, it's foolish (especially considering she did not have all of the necessary information to make a good decision). Brandon is so loving and so willing to do whatever it takes to get Megan back, despite her inability to make a decision about them one way or the other. The back and forth drove me crazy, but it lead to a thick layer of drama and angst that made the book enjoyable. If you like your beach reads quick and angsty, this is a great pick for you. I give The Billionaire's Private Scandal 3 out of 5 wine glasses. 


By day, Jenna is faster than a speeding toddler, stronger than a stubborn husband, able to leap tall Lego structures in a single bound…but by night, while the family sleeps she writes romance novels where no one ever has to scoop up after the dog, change diapers, clip coupons, drive carpool, do laundry, mop floors, get silly putty out of hair, vacuum, empty the vacuum bag (gross!), exercise, count calories, apply bandaids, clean up puke…wait where was this going? Oh, Jenna writes romance because it is glamorous. Just ask the dog.
