Blog Tour & Giveaway: Anyone But Rich [Anyone But... 01] by Penelope Bloom!

Publication date: 3rd September 2019
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 3.5/4 stars
Synopsis: Seven years ago, my best friends and I made a promise: No matter what, we would never date one of the King brothers. Even if they grew up to become megafamous, gorgeous, heart-stopping billionaires. Even if they crawled on their knees and begged for forgiveness.

But guess who just flew back into our lives in a private jet? And guess who just showed up to my job on my first day? Richard. King. Fortunately, it takes two seconds for Richard to reveal he hasn’t changed. Conceited. Cocky. Rude. Unfortunately, he’s also the kind of gorgeous that’s borderline offensive—with a jawline to make statues self-conscious and a grin that short-circuits my brain.

He’s spent years taking what he wants. I doubt he’s hungry for anything else—except me, apparently. There’s no way I’ll let him maneuver his way back into my life. My friends would never forgive me. I would never forgive me. But did I mention his jawline?

I hadn't heard of this author or this book until I received an email from the publisher and this book was included in it! The synopsis was very intriguing and sounded like something I would read, so I decided to do just that! This book did take me a bit longer than I was expecting to read, but I'm happy that I finally got the chance to read it! The plot was intriguing and I found that it developed at a good pace! I have to be honest though and say that I felt like the plot was missing something for me to fall completely in love with it! I had a bit of a hard time connecting with the main characters and there wasn't any action or suspense in the plot to keep me desperate to read on! There was romance though, which allowed for a few seriously hot scenes between the two main characters! The characters were also great and did make this book even better! Kira was the main female character, and in this book she was providing for herself and she had a good job! I liked Kira in this book! I felt like she tried her best and had come a long way! I loved the way Kira was with her best friends too! There were quite a few funny scenes between them and they were always there for each other! Richard 'Rich' was the main male character and love interest of Kira! I thought that Rich was going to be a complete ass in this book because he was famous and had lots of money! I thought that he was a bit of an ass at the beginning, but I actually found myself liking him more as this book progressed! It was also easy to see that he had feelings for Kira and he was honest with her and open about how he felt! I loved that this book was written from both Kira and Rich's point of views! I was really sure whether this book was going to be written from dual point of view because the synopsis gives the impression that it's only going to be written from the female character's point of view! I'm really happy that it was written from dual point of view because it helped me connect more with Kira and Rich and it allowed for more things to happen in the plot too! I now can't wait to read the next book in this series! I mean, I felt like this book was missing something for me, but the next book is going to focus on two secondary characters from this book, which has me intrigued! I'll definitely be checking it out once it releases! I'm not sure when the next book releases because there wasn't anything at the end of this book and there isn't anything on Goodreads about the next book! I'm going to assume that it'll release next year, which I can wait for lol! I still have this author's other books to check out as well! The cover for this book is also interesting because it doesn't feature any cover models on it! It still has that rich feel to it, which suits the book! I'm not sure if the cover would appeal to me if I hadn't receive an email with the book in it though, but it does suit the book! Big thank you to Montlake Romance for an ARC of Anyone But Rich and for having me on the Blog Tour!
