Roselette Horton…
Miss Prim and Proper.
Arm candy for one of the richest men in Hoffman.
Fate had her saving my life. Now I’m indebted to repay the favour.
Rose has the biggest stick up her arse. It’s surprising she can even put one foot in front of the other. She has no clue what it means to be living, or who she really is. To the outside world Rose has everything, but to those who pay close attention, it’s nothing short of a well-constructed façade.

I’m Finlay Crossley and I’m a simple misfit from the wrong side of the tracks.
Until three days ago, I didn’t have two cents to rub together.
Rose is my opposite in every way, but as the saying goes—‘opposites attract.’

How in the world does a socialite notice a nobody like me?
It all happens when a loser becomes a winner.




I am blown away by Belle’s talent to create something completely different every single time she comes out with a book. She can make you bawl your eyes out in one read and the next she’ll have you biting your nails from the suspense.
Just a month ago I was freaking out over her book “One Fear” that is a psychological suspense and today I’m freaking out over Winner that is a contemporary romance story. It’s insane!


Truth be told, it took me a while to get into this story. I liked the plot but felt like there was something missing, like it could have been a tad bit better developed. Because of that, I ended up getting easily bored in some chapters. Sometimes I found myself barely skimming through the pages and not really focusing on the story.


Towards the end of the book—kind of the climax of the story—something really unexpected happened that had my feelings going all over the place but also made me make up my mind on whether I liked this book or not.
I don’t want to give anything away but I’ll just say that one character made a decision that I both hated and liked at the same time. I hated it because I don’t think it was the right thing to do and it was very dramatic, like making a tempest in a teapot. I liked it because in the end it turned out to be a great thing for a character in the story, that decision changed his/her life for the better.


All things considered, I definitely recommend this book to my contemporary romance fans out there. I’m sure y’all are going to enjoy this read. It is original and romantic and it has some action, plus it contains the right amount of drama to be enjoyable.
I would also like to add that everyone has to check out Belle Brooks’ books. I know you’ll find something you’ll like in her other books, even if you think this book is not up your alley. She has something for everyone.


Note: This is not relevant—at all—to the story but here’s why Finlay Crossley won my heart. I might be a little biased.
“Mexican women are kind and sweet.”
