The Bohemian and the Businessman by Katy Regnery
Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.
In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.**

About the Author
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.
Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.
Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.
In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.
Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
I received this book as an ARC for a honest review. Thanks to the author and L. Woods PR for the book.
This author could publish her grocery list and I'm pretty sure I'd read it. I have enjoyed all of her stories and this one is no different.
Pricilla has come home with her tail between her legs. She thought she was in love and was going to live happily ever after but the man she chose was a fraud. He wasn't single, he was married and the baby they had on the way was a problem. Pris wasn't going to get rid of her baby just because the father was a horrible person. She'd go home and figure it out, if she doesn't then the inheritance she's supposed to get will be gone. Let me say this her father, if you can call him that, is a total ass. He's rude and disgusting. He hates that he has no boys and barely tolerates the girls he has.
Shane Olsen wants to be an important person. Money and class were important to him. He was in a relationship with his bosses daughter Margaret Story. He didn't have romantic feelings for her but they worked well together and seemed to have common goals. He couldn't have been more wrong, she didn't want to marry him, he was humiliated. In walks Pricilla Story. He remembers when she worked at her fathers company one summer. She's attractive and flighty, nothing like what he wants in a wife. He needs someone that will make him look good, be a good representation of him. Polished and well put together is not Pricilla. But she needs him and he likes to be wanted. She's going to help him get his dream.
Slowly Shane starts to loosen up, he realizes that everything he wanted wasn't the best thing in the world. Pricilla button things up for Shane because she keeps her word and then it was because she was starting to feel more than she should. I love love that Pricilla was who she was and didn't take anything from anyone about it. Shane grew to understand that she wasn't as flighty as she seemed and could be there for people when she needed to but it wasn't what made her lovable to him.
Life is messy and sometimes you have to shake things up and that is what Pricilla did for Shane, they balanced each other out. He also gave her the backbone to stand strong with her family. Her father and sisters are odd. I can't imagine how Pricilla grew up so sweet and nice after getting more of a back story of the Story's. Check out this story! I would say you NEED to start at the beginning of Blueberry Lane but really each set of siblings books are stand alones. You will get sort of spoilers from the other in the books. SO maybe you should start at the beginning!!! You won't regret it!
