He’s rich. He’s handsome. He’s everything she wants, but nothing she thinks she can have.
I loved the idea of a guy that is so head-over-heels for a woman that he’s willing to fight for her no matter what. That sums up Filthy Rich. Nartan…he’s sexy and knows it, but he’s not vain. He just knows what he wants. I liked that Ms. Ryder wrote him in such a way that I could see him and man, was he a presence. I love that he was willing to chase Celeste and prove he wasn’t like her ex. Honestly, that was the best part of the story.
Celeste…now where do I begin? I liked the character because she was someone I could root for. She’s got issues in her past in the form of an ex who is…let’s just say he’s not very nice at all. I liked that she was wounded and relatable. She was someone I could see as one of my friends. I wanted her to succeed and get the guy. That said, her wishy-washy-ness early on was irritating. I understood WHY she wasn’t sure about Nartan, but watching her go back and forth got tedious.
Still, the chemistry between these two is off the charts and worth reading. If you like a book with a crazy rich man, a woman who wants said man and plenty of heat, then this might be the book for you.
