Park Avenue Prince by Louise Bay
This book is a perfect example of rags to riches but unlike books like Fifty Shades of Grey, where the hero lavaishes himself with his profound richness, the hero in this book doesn’t really care for the material things and for that I must praise him.
The hero had the perfect family and at a tender age he lost his parents in an accident and ever since was thrown in the foster care system where he learnt the harshness of life. From that moment on, he turned his back on having feelings for anyone and happiness. He believes that happiness is a figment of the imagination and is very selective on who he cares for and who he lets in his life.
Wanting to invest in something, he buys an apartment in Park Avenue but doesn’t furnish it. He relies on an old broken couch he had for years and a mattress on his bedroom floor. His best friend, who is a girl he met in the foster system demands he atleast hang something on the wall. Maybe some paintings he can invest in since all he buys are things to invest in.
In comes the heroine who owns her own art studio where she displays the beauty of various paintings for artists. She is a Park Avenue princess but hates depending on her parents for money and does what she wants. She was the total opposite of the hero and have no plan on marrying or dating someone who is rich. She blames this on her dysfunctional family where her mother would go out and sleep with different men and her father would do nothing but stay faithful to her.
When the two characters meet the sparks are undeniable and you can feel their chemistry but they both are what the other swore they don’t want from life. However as they began spending time with each other their feelings began to develop and there was no way they could not admit that they made each other happy. Readers get to experience the hero opening up to heroine and two broken souls becoming one.
However, after an accident happens where the heroine ends up in the hospital, the hero’s insecurities began to over take him. He cursed himself for falling prey to his own desire and forgetting that happiness doesnt last long. So he leaves the heroine without giving her any explanation.
Do they end up back together? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
