Summary
Most girls dream of marrying a billionaire.

Me? I’d rather make fun of one. Especially if the billionaire in question is Alexander Grant.

Excuse me — XANDER Grant. That’s right — the mega-hot entrepreneur who seems to top every magazine’s “Rich Eligible Bachelors” list these days.

To me, he’ll always be Alex — my childhood best friend. The guy who joined me on all sorts of wild teenage misadventures. The only person in our small town who understood me.

It’s been four years since I’ve seen Alex. But suddenly he’s back in our town at the exact same time my life is imploding around me.

We’ve both changed so much — I mean, the guy used to live in ripped jeans, and now he wears nothing but designer suits — but when I need it most, he offers me exactly the escape I need. A chance to run away from my life, if only for a few days.

I only hope my heart is prepared.

AUTHOR'S NOTE:

While The Billionaire Escape Plan is the first official Romantic Comedy I've written, it also has the distinction of being one of only two stories I've ever written that's made me cry (NOT because it's sad - it isn't! - but because it hit such a tender, emotional note for me in certain places as I was writing. Which was inconvenient, because I wrote most of this book from my local Starbucks. Yep, I was that crying girl in the corner). I'm not sure why I feel the need to share this...except to say that this story holds a very special place in my heart.

I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoyed writing it! (My editor said that Mae and Alex remind her of Emma and Mr. Knightley from Jane Austen's book Emma, and that might be my favorite thing that anyone has ever said about my writing EVER. I ADORE Jane Austen.) Happy reading!
