Lucas Scott, a world-renowned microbiologist, is desperate to find a cure for the butterfly flu before it spreads. Hounded by the media, he escapes to his houseboat in Santa Barbara where he meets a vivacious veterinarian with a penchant for taking in strays. While he searches for the key to unlocking the butterfly flu, Becca somehow unlocks his analytical heart.
Becca Lee isn't impressed with her new neighbor. His clothes are constantly wrinkled and he's grumpier than a cat with digestive problems. However, Luke isn't easy to brush off. He's always around, has a magnificent mind, and is full of surprises. But, what she can't figure out is why her instincts tell her to trust this rouge billionaire. It doesn't take long to realize he is the only one alive who can save the world and Becca has to make a choice--open her heart or watch Luke sail off into the sunset.
My Review: 3.5 Stars
Lucas Scott is a world-renowned microbiologist in search of a cure for the butterfly flu. He's on the verge of a breakthrough when things go awry and he ends up having to step down as head of his company and dissolves his research team. In an effort to escape the media and evil reporters he heads to Santa Barbara, CA to live on his boat, Incognito, for the foreseeable future.
Becca Lee is a vet that will do anything and everything for animals. She trusts and loves them more than people. When she first meets Lucas she doesn't want to like him. But there is just something about him that she can't seem to brush off. There's more to him than what's on the outside.
As Lucas and Becca get to know each other better, will they learn to let their guard down and trust each other? Or will secrets keep them apart?
I really, really wanted to love this book! I have loved all the books that I have read by Lucy McConnell. But there was just something missing in this one for me. I can't put my finger on it but by the end I was kinda scratching my head thinking how did we get here?! But it was a fun escape and I'm looking forward to the other books in this series.
And of course we can't forget the casting! ;)
