Juicy IRR Reading: “The Tycoon’s Socialite Bride”


 Review of

The Tycoon’s Socialite Bride

Written by Karla


Summary: To avenge his mother’s mistreatment at the hands of her upper-crust employer, self-made real estate tycoon Marcus Pearson needs entree into their exclusive world. When D.C. socialite Pamela Harrington comes to him for help, Marcus realizes the golden admission ticket he’s been seeking has suddenly fallen into his lap.


Pamela will do anything to save her favorite cause, even agree to a marriage of convenience. The altruistic “it-girl” isn’t worried about the pretend passion with Marcus turning real; she’s sworn off powerful, driven men who use her for her family’s connections.


So she’ll deny the way her pulse races with one look from his crystalline blue eyes. And he’ll ignore the way his body throbs with each kiss from her full lips. Because there’s no way he’ll lose his blue-collar heart to the blue-blooded beauty.


Review: I really like the way Interracial Romance authors and the genre seem to be headed; this book is a perfect example of that. Although the solution to Pamela Harrington’s problem appears completely unreal, in a modern world, it actually works! Both Pamela and Marcus are well-developed characters: smart, compassionate and all-too-human. An unreal solution becomes the best way to help them grow as a couple and, eventually, find love and trust.


The Tycoon’s Socialite Bride is a superlative, fast-paced read, well-written and well-edited. Tracey Livesay writes like a seasoned author, though this is her debut, published novel. Word of warning; set aside time to finish the book in a day or an evening. You will not want to put it down!
