The Bohemian and the Businessman (Blueberry Lane 4 - The Story Sisters #1)



Goodreads Review



Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.

Shane Olson, who previously dated Priscilla’s sister, Margaret, isn’t opposed to a marriage of convenience for the sake of furthering his business interests, but Priscilla – with her wild ways – is just about the last woman he’d choose to marry.

In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.





I want to live on Blueberry Lane with all of these wonderful characters. I don’t care if they are fictional. I just do. To date this is one of my favourite series in the contemporary romance genre. It has everything I need and want in book. A balance of angst, sweetness, adorable misunderstandings, with chemistry that can’t be denied.  
The old adage that opposites do attract couldn’t be any truer when it comes to The Bohemian and the Businessman.
Priscilla Story is in a spot of bother. The wild child, the black sheep of the family has truly got herself up the creek without one single paddle in sight. Coming from one of the prominent families in Philadelphia living a life of luxury. Having anything she wanted but not the one thing she truly wanted. Love. Her only real tie to the family, her sister Margaret.
Relying too much on her Trust to come through for her. Flitting from one thing to another. A rolling stone. But this rolling stone needs to change her ways as she managed to get herself knocked up. She needs a solution pronto. Something blond with blue eyes of calm comes her way.
Shane Olsen. Adorable the last gentleman left on this earth works for Story Imports and wants into upper management. There is a condition by the god awful Douglas Story none of his daughters will ever be in that position so he needs a son in law. Shane has always wanted to belong to the upper crust coming from a farm in Wisconsin he wants to be more. Where he is so sacrificing and asks Margaret to date him so that he can achieve the plan he set when watching Wall Street at the age of ten. A business marriage is the way to go.
Let’s just say that nothing goes to plan and well he strikes with the quick solution that Priscilla suggests. Since P interned with her father she has liked to tease Shane. Gosh how I love them together. They each complement one another. They seem like an unlikely couple but that is exactly why I felt that it worked really well. One too serious and the other somewhat flighty.
They were never meant to fall in love but some things just can’t be helped and they have that electricity that spark. There were two instances where they truly said some awful things to one another but they were all true and an eye opener and they re-evaluate.
This is Katy at her best. The Katy I love and know. The one author that writes magic. She makes this old cynic believe in the happily ever afters of the world. That love will always prevail and that everything is beautiful and right and that we all deserve to be accepted for who we are to be loved for who we are and well to just be. I sound pretty sappy right now but I don’t care. 
I read it in one sitting and I love when I get to read a book like this and an ARC as well. I am just all slap happy today.
And the best of it all a male virgin. It’s like finding a frigging unicorn. Precious. I have to also say that I thought that it might be weird because P is knocked up and all but it ran smooth just the way I expected from Katy. Shane took on the role as father like a duck to frigging water. Unicorn!!!!

Oh and there wasn't a "real" relationship between him and Margaret. Helped big time.
