ARC Review: Romancing the Undercover Millionaire by Clare London

Can poverty and privilege find a loving compromise? Alexandre Bonfils, a rich and spoiled second son, is tired of being ignored and decides to help when the family’s exclusive wine business is in trouble. Going undercover in the warehouse, he loves the adventure—and the chance to be close to the sassy and sexy manager, Tate Somerton.

Tate is hardworking and financially struggling, bringing up his siblings on his own. A suspected saboteur at work is his latest challenge, but now he also has a clueless, though very attractive, new intern. There’s an immediate spark between the ill-matched couple, until a shocking accident cuts short Alex’s amateur sleuthing.

While recovering in the generous care of Tate and his family, will Alex realize what belonging really means? Passion and pride come together to fight for the company they’re both committed to preserving, but can a personal bond remain when the dust settles?

Dani's rating:

This book was a bit disappointing. Book 2 was adorbs, and I was sure this one would be too. And it was. Mostly.

It was also convoluted with a slapstick mystery thrown in for good measure. I'm no Nancy Drew, but I spotted the villain immediately. It was very, VERY obvious.

The romance was slightly lackluster too. I liked Tate's family, maybe more than I liked Tate himself. He was of a bit of a stick in the mud.

Alex was kind and really tried. I liked the way he sort of adopted Tate's family.

I was thrilled to get an epilogue, but could that final scene have been any less romantic? Way to ruin the moment, Tate. To see Alex all flustered and backtracking was depressing.

This is a cute, mildly entertaining story, but the relationship lacked passion and tension.
