Review: Gold Digger by RB Hilliard (Whisky's #2)


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Gold Digger is a follow-up to author RB Hilliard's previous romantic comedy standalone release two years ago, Utterly Forgettable, and is also a Whisky's novel.  Now, I loved Hilliard's MMG and Meltdown series, but those had more of romantic suspense feel to them, so I knew I had to taper my expectations for her two rom-coms. I read Utterly Forgettable prior to this new book because they are loosely tied together, but it's pretty fair to say that Gold Digger can totally be read as a standalone. If you're like me and like reading books in a series in order or you simply want to see where Blake and Hadley were originally introduced, go with Utterly Forgettable first.

Hadley Jacobs isn't the kind of young woman who does one-night stands, but hooking up with her longtime crush seemed like a good idea at the time. A couple of months later, her drunken escapade results in something totally unexpected. Seeing Blake Romero again, however, reminds her of just how used the guy is to one-night stands given she sees him locking lips with some woman upon her arrival at her new home. Her new job has her interacting with Blake on a regular basis as well. They both agree that what happened months ago wasn't that big of a deal, so why is it that jealousy and possessiveness make it clear it was really a bigger deal?

Goodness, but how these two needed to work on their communication skills! There was no denying that they had the whole sexual chemistry down pat, but Blake's past and Hadley's tendency to jump to conclusions puts what they're trying to build at risk each and every time. There are some pretty funny moments, a lot of which were courtesy of the supporting characters. When Blake and Hadley would tease each other with nicknames like Blaze and Gold Digger, it was a sign to me that these two would make it in the end. Just like its predecessor, though, Gold Digger wasn't at par with Hilliard's more intense reads. It was still pretty good though. Four stars. ♥
