No ordinary Billionaire, by J.S. Scott is a 242-page contemporary romance novel and is the first book out of a 6-book series, called The Sinclairs. I will be reading all 6 so expect to see lots of back to back from this author. It is written from a third-person POV, two-sided.
Spoilers Ahead ***
This isn’t my first time reading this author, but I’ll admit I need to get better at doing the reviews immediately after reading because since I read this I’ve read 9 other books from different authors.
Sarah grew up as a child genius, she graduated high school at 12 and was ready to practice in the field of medicine at the age of 19. Not only was she special in this way, but her mother pressured her to find the “right man”, which in her mind was a genius, just like Sarah. Sarah ran away from all the things, her mother and her life in Chicago because a serial killer came after her in the hospital and almost killed her. The serial killer wasn’t caught, so she’s not on the run exactly, but she is hoping to start fresh in a small town. You can imagine that as a child genius she was also not able to interact with people her age in a normal way, so she’s socially awkward and it’s something in the book you see her start to get over.
Dante is a broken cop who lost his best friend and partner in the line of duty. The reason he’s no ordinary billionaire is because he chose to go into law instead of taking over his family’s billion dollar company. He also doesn’t touch his family’s money and instead lives off what he makes as a cop in LA. To nurse his injuries and his soul he returns to his family’s home in Amesport, Maine where he meets Sarah, his physician. He decides to get another doctor because he decided he needs her.
This is definitely a case of instalust. Dante essentially takes one look at her and decides he has to have her. That being said, I think that is just one of the things this author tends to do.
In summary, I give this a 4 out of 5. I enjoyed the story and look forward to learning more about the other Sinclairs. You learn in this book that they come from a pretty broken home so it’ll be interesting to see how he and his siblings grow.
