Fionn Lynch is a self-made Irish billionaire, sought after for his striking appearance, razor sharp intellect and ability to thrive in volatile markets. When his mentor dies unexpectedly in a tragic accident, leaving his business and family in turmoil, Fionn steps in and takes charge. He seeks out estranged heiress Olivia Grey to help squash the unpleasant rumors. When the details of her secret past are leaked to the media, she must decide if she is willing to trust Fionn and allow herself to be drawn into her estranged family. Sparks fly between the two when he persuades her to accompany him to New York to salvage her family’s crumbling financial empire.
A shy clothing designer who was raised by a guardian in an attempt to save the Bolles family from shame, Olivia proves that she has the strength and determination to survive. She has to fight her way through relentless media scrutiny, memories of her father, and the expectations of the elite New York social world–all while trying to keep Fionn at arm’s length, for she refuses to settle for an emotionally distant relationship ever again.
It proves impossible to deny her attraction to Fionn. Is their growing bond enough to overcome all the obstacles thrown into their path?
The Forgotten Heiress is a quick summer read filled with sexual tension and drama. I think that the plot had the potential to be great, but a lot of the events in this book felt too forced, like they weren’t happening naturally and were instead happening before the story had progressed enough for certain decisions to be made by characters.
One case where this is extremely evident is how easy it is for Olivia to roll over and accept that her father she never knew was actually a celebrity and that she has family that she never knew about. Once she is presented with this information, she is a bit hesitant at first but then almost immediately agrees that it is reality.
I liked the story overall, I just wish that there was more plot development and that the events in the story felt like they occurred more organically.
I give The Forgotten Heiress 3/5 stars. You can purchase it from Amazon by clicking on the book’s cover image below:
