Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Invested In Love
Title: The Billionaire’s Private Scandal
Author: Jenna Bayley-Burke

Megan Carlton had a secret affair with billionaire Brandon Knight which she ended by disappearing after he took over her family’s chain of hotels and she then saw him kissing another woman. From being a trust fund, respected member of the wealthy community, Megan and her sisters suddenly came crashing down to earth, needing to support themselves after their parents disappeared without indicating where they were going or giving any explanation. The sisters have all taken on their changed circumstances in different ways.
Megan is working two jobs – as a barista and in a bar – striving to get herself a firm financial base to build upon. The coffee shop is where Brandon comes face to face with her again. With a seven year secret relationship largely based on intimate encounters, they never went on dates together or anything that might let others realise they were together. This – and his takeover of her family’s hotels – has undermined the trust between them. This is the story of how he tries to prove he had good motives, ones that she would support if only she would listen to him whilst she strives to keep her independence and not let him hurt her again!
This is a real emotional roller coaster, so packed with secrets and misunderstandings that overflow to drown their relationship.There are also elements of suspense and mystery, especially concerning Megan’s parents, which I can only hope will be answered in future stories in this series. There are also some very moving moments concerning the refuge homes Megan is involved with. I enjoyed reading this story – it is a quick read with a cliff hanger ending that left me wanting to know more so I can’t wait for the sequel to be published!
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
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.
