***Review - Priceless by Raine Miller - Rothvale Legacy #1 - 4 Stars***


Priceless by Raine Miller
Rothvale Legacy #1

4 Ivan the Terribly Brilliant Stars

Blurb - Ivan Everley, 13th Baron Rothvale, will tell you himself he's the LAST person on earth who should have custody over a priceless collection of art, but since when does the irony of life ever fall in line with what somebody wants? Ivan might be a Lord according to British law, but he's just a regular guy with an appetite for speed...and women...and some dominating kink in the bedroom. Yeah, just a regular guy who happens have Olympic gold medals stashed away in his house. Riiiight. His public profile is merely a sham--his private life a carefully guarded secret borne out of the pain of betrayal. Even his famous cousin, Ethan Blackstone, doesn't know the whole story about the man he considers a brother.

Lord Ivan has a plethora of problems piled up to his aristocratic eyeballs--that only get more complicated when a beautiful art conservationist shows up to appraise his inherited collection of paintings--but that doesn't stop him from digging himself in deeper. Nope, not a bit. Once Ivan gets a taste of Gabrielle Hargreave, mistaken identity or not, he can't think of anything else but how perfect she felt in his arms the night he first laid his eyes on her.

He wants her, and what Ivan wants, Ivan gets. He is Lord Ivan after all. Gabrielle soon discovers that the Dom in him isn't taking 'no' for an answer. But, yet, Gabrielle Hargreave might just teach our discontent lord a thing or two about life, and about himself, and help them both discover the undeniable truth in what it means to find something genuinely...priceless. 

Priceless is the first book in the Rothvale Legacy series, I have read some other books by this author so when I was offered a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I was intrigued to see how this spin off series would play out.

Lord Ivan is amazing!!! He’s an absolute arsehole and I love him!!!

This story skirts around both Ivan and Gabrielle’s kink, it teases you till your going oh is it going to happen now?? Is it going to get really saucy? But it just kept tempting but not paying out. I felt a bit led on lol

Gabrielle is a mysterious one there’s something deeper going on with her but I genuinely have no idea what it is.

There is a deep intriguing connection between Ivan and Gabrielle that totally drew me in. Let’s be honest how intense they are with each other it’s a massive turn on.

Gabrielle is a massive contradiction she’s flits between feisty and bold and insecure and cowering and I’m unsure which one is the real person.

Ivan is just really engaging, I’m not sure I actually like him as a person but he’s so interesting that I’m desperate to find out what happens next.

This first instalment feels almost like a test if you are still into this series after the first book teases you so much then the second book My Lord will be even better.

My Lord is I believe due to be released at the end of January but it’s already on my TBR list.

Priceless gets 4 stars from me.
