Laura Beth

He was a charming stranger.

A business trip hook-up.

Then, suddenly, my competition.

Parker Brooks. Gorgeous, confident, wildly successful. And the one thing standing in the way of my landing the deal that would secure my hard-earned promotion and future.

I didn't care how good he looked in a suit. If achieving my dream meant going through Parker Brooks, so be it.


She was a southern spitfire.

The star of the hottest night of my life.

And my self-proclaimed rival.

Laura Beth Calhoun. A small-town transplant with enough confidence and sass to turn even my jaded head. And the first woman to make me question if love was more than just a story my grandfather told me.

I didn't care about the deal. Laura Beth was mine. She just needed to arrive at the same conclusion.

Arrived is the first full-length standalone in the South Bay Billionaires series. This story features a strong female lead and a charming, charismatic billionaire who sweeps her off of her feet. It's medium angst, high spice, with a guaranteed happily ever after. Recommended for 18+ only.


I received Arrived in return for an honest review from the authors. 

Laura Beth is determined to to close her first solo deal and land her dream job that she's been work towards no one is going to get in her way. With a chance meeting on a flight she encounters Parker as they both fly back and forth for work. While she planned for it to be a one night things spiral out of control when they are both trying to woo the same client. 

I love Laura Beth as a character she's just great I instantly was able to connect with her. Even though her focus is full on her job she noticed Parker right from the first flight he instantly sparked her interest. I liked the snarky banter and chemistry between them. Parker is just so swoon worthy he is perfect for Laura Beth. I really like that Parker was the one to fall first and that he chose love over the job very refreshing.

Arrived captured my heart right from the start I live in South Bay area and grew up in Boise Idaho which is where the client is located. It was fun to see the characters moving back and forth from my current home to my home town as I don't see books with Boise as the destination very often. I love Billionaire romance novels it's one of my favorite tropes so I couldn't pass up the chance to read Arrived and I'm so glad I did because I loved it. 

Arrived is a fast paced workplace romance that captures the heart as well as the imagination. I devoured Arrived in one reading session I couldn't put it down I had to know how it was all going to play out in the end. The authors did a wonderful job creating engaging characters you can't help cheering on through the whole book. I love the banter between Laura Beth and Parker even the little prank war. This is my first book by the authors but I'm hooked. I loved Arrived it's a cute story perfect for fans of billionaire romance. I can't wait to read the next couple in the South Bay Billionaires series.
