The King of Bourbon Street - Review

Idgie Says:
This book is a bit on the crude/in your face side, but in general is a story of two very, very wealthy people who are looking for do-overs in their lives.  Sol has led a wild existence and starting to wonder if this is all he'll ever have, and Arianna is running away from her over-controlling mother after purposely creating a sex tape to get out of a forced family marriage/merger.  

Savor a LOVEL-E treat for Valentine’s Day, The King of Bourbon Street by Thea de Salle (Pocket Star EBook; February 13, 2017; 9781501156076; Romance)!

About the book:
Thirty-seven-year-old Sol DuMont is a divorcee and the owner of a mid-sized hotel chain in New Orleans. Since Hurricane Katrina, his father’s death, and the decision that he and his ex-wife Maddy are far better off friends than lovers, he’s lost interest in almost everything he held dear—parties, people, and pushing limits. All his limits.

Then Arianna Barrington checks into his hotel. Twenty-four-year-old Arianna “Rain” Barrington could have been society’s sweetheart. Her family is moneyed, connected press darlings, and make sweeping headlines from coast to coast for reasons both good and bad. But when her mother shoves her at Charles Harwood—the obnoxious, entitled heir of Harwood Corp—to cement a billion-dollar business merger, Rain does the only thing she can think of to escape: she creates a scandal so big Harwood doesn’t want her anymore before fleeing to New Orleans for much-needed rest and relaxation.

All she wants is jazz piano, beignets, and to sail the Mississippi. What she gets is Sol DuMont, a whirlwind affair, and a hands-on education in sex, power play, and pushing limits. All her limits.
