*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.*
The Road to Price was a quick read and it was almost Cinderellaesque- a rags to riches tale. Mia is a hard working girl holding down three jobs until she finally catches a break and gets offered a full time housekeeping position although it comes with some rather ‘interesting’ benefits in the form of her new boss, Sebastian Price.
Mia left her former job and former successful life after a heartbreaking event that tore her apart. So working for Sebastian is a welcomed relief although she doesn’t expect to fall for him and she never planned to let him into her heart.
I connected to Mia’s back-story and found it emotional at times when she would reminisce. I could understand her need for a fresh start and her reluctance to share her past with anyone as that was her business. There was instant attraction there with Sebastian and that led to some hot times.
Overall, this was a good story, I seen the potential in it and I feel if it was longer we could have got more character depth and really fell for Sebastian and Mia together. I could understand Mia’s hesitancy at the end. She was still so young and that was the only way she could process the upcoming changes, I just wish she didn’t run but then they always do.
I liked Sebastian’s POV at the end and thought it would be even better if it was throughout the story. He was hard to get a handle on and I didn’t initially like him as he was a young Hugh Hefner type character that slept with his staff. His change was a bit too sudden to be convincing but I did like Mia so it was easy to go along with it.
I liked the author’s writing; I started this story late at night and immediately wanted to read on. The pace felt a little uneven at times and I felt it was a bit rushed toward the end but it still made for a good read.
If you like the rich CEO storylines then this book is definitely for you. It’s quick, enjoyable and leaves you wanting more.
