Review: Finn (Blue-Collar Billionaires #2) by M. Malone

The 2nd book in the BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES series by New York Times Bestselling Author M. Malone.

Finn Marshall survived several tours in Afghanistan before the billionaire father he barely remembers changed everything. Now he has it all: money, cars and most importantly, power. Power to track down the woman who left him for a richer man.

Marissa Blake dragged herself out of poverty one client at a time, so she's thrilled when her company, Maid-4-U, gets a huge contract for a luxury penthouse. Until she sees who owns it.

Now to save her struggling business, Finn demands everything she once promised him. Money can't buy him happiness but it can buy him one thing: REVENGE 

Finn is about a man named ... you guessed it ... Finn. Now, Finn is quite wealthy due to a new inheritance. He uses this inheritance to make his old flame's life a living hell. Well, that was the plan anyway. Things don't work out quite the way that he intended and you follow Finn and Rissa on this rollercoaster of a relationship as they rediscover themselves and each other. 

You know, I was really intrigued by the summary for this one. Buying revenge? It sounded almost like a romantic suspense. Which it is not. Before I get into all of that, there are a few good things. I liked the characters for the most part. And I liked the camaraderie between Finn and his brothers. I thought that added a bit to the story line.

But. I think that there were too many subplots going on with this book. There were like 15 other things going on other than the main storyline. It was just too much. Not that there was too much information and you're just inundated but with so many different things going on, not enough attention was given to the main plots. I think that if just a couple of them were chosen then the story would have been stronger and it would have grabbed (and kept) my attention. I just got a little tired of such vague situations and anticlimaxes. Where the climax of the story should have been was actually just a "meh" little victory. 

I had such high hopes for this book and this whole series. I had actually put all of this series on my To Read list but I fear that I may have to change that. This book wasn't badly written, it was just a bit fragmented and lackadaisical with the story line. If you like a slower paced book, this may be for you. It's just not a good fit for me.
