Olivia Moore has landed her dream job—to renovate a very special beach house for her best friend, Maria. The last thing Olivia needs is to bump into her teen crush, the geeky yet sexy Alexander Anderson. The young man she fell deeply in love with is now her best friend’s brother-in-law. 

When the shy, enigmatic bachelor asks for Olivia’s help with a special makeover and an infusion of confidence to woo a particular woman (unaware that she’s the one he’s after) she wants nothing to do with him. After all despite her generous nature to help everyone, she cannot risk getting closer to him. What if she falls in love with him again and then if he discovers her secret past, which she is still coming to terms with, it may tear them apart forever?

My Review:

From Geek to Greek Billionaire is a story about second chances at life and love. Although the story deals with sensitive topics, it still manages to capture a truly heartwarming love story. 

At the beginning we get to meet Olivia, an interior designer who gets a great opportunity to get her name out there by decorating the beach house of one of her friends. That was her only task, but after stumbling upon Alexander, an old flame who she had met nine years ago, Olivia doesn’t know what to do. She has always loved Alexander, but after he ends up living her to go back to Greece, she doesn’t hear from him again. As time went by so did the obstacles that she had to go through, those made Olivia stronger and now that she is working again she wants to be able to do her best. Meeting Alexander at the beach brought back memories of their time together, but when she mades her a proposition one that she can’t seem to refuse it’ll be up to her whether or not to give their relationship a second chance or not. 

Alexander never expected to see Olivia again, but when he crosses paths with her on his morning run at the beach he knows that he has to act fast before it’s too late. He has always loved Olivia, but a misunderstanding made him leave everything behind and that’s how he found his way back to Greece. After working hard, Alexander became a successful billionaire and he is now ready to settle down. But not just with anyone, he wants Olivia his first love to be the one, and he is not going to stop until he gets her to agree to give their relationship another chance. It’s after they start to spend time together that secrets get exposed, ones that could potentially hurt what they’ve built together. Now it’ll be up to them to let go of the past in order to start fresh again.

I really lived the overall idea of the story, not so much the execution of it. What I liked about the story was how the author introduces the characters’ back stories and the ending was very sweet. I do wish we could have gotten more from the characters, it all seemed a bit rushed to me. Although I couldn’t connect with the characters at times, we do get a happy and satisfying ending. I would still recommend it to those that are looking for a quick read. :D
