Book Review: The Irish Prince (Billionaire Dynasties #2) by Virginia Nelson

CEO Aiden Kelley’s life of billionaire extravagance is flipped upside down when his ex shows up with a ten-year-old she claims is his. Totally out of his element and losing the control so integral to his success, he needs help. To top it all off, the only constant woman in his life, his executive assistant, has given notice just when he needs her help to survive his newfound fatherhood.

Chelsea Houston is an executive assistant, not a nanny. The only person more clueless about kids is her boss. Helping him on a daddy-daughter road trip is her last task before he’ll accept her two weeks’ notice and she can be free of the infuriating man she’s had a crush on for longer than she’d admit.

Aiden’s carefully ordered life has never been so disorganized, and he’s suddenly tempted by the things he thought he could never have. Things like love and family. Who knew chaos could be so damn fun?


Usually, I don't pick a book up that is in the middle of a series unless I've read the books that come prior to it. But something about this one just screamed at me and I knew that I just needed to give it a shot even though I knew absolutely nothing about this author. I'm glad that I did. It was a sweet book that I totally blew through. 

The book was really endearing. I tend to shy away from books that involve characters that have kids. Probably because I have two boys and I don't want to read about anything that is similar to my life - books are an escape from your life, right? At least, that's how I look at them. But I enjoyed the moments of the book that involved Aiden's kiddo. The daughter's character was actually one of my favorite parts. I liked how spunky and so very headstrong she was. It added an interesting aspect to an already fabulous book. 

Aiden's character ... he was simultaneously infuriating and sweet in a lot of situations. I just wanted to knock him upside his head with my Kindle quite a few times. When a character is THAT irritating and you still love him, you know that he's super well written. He had so many misguided hangups that you couldn't help but just adore him. 

And Chelsea. Lord, that woman ... she is a bit bullheaded and isn't afraid to tell Aiden what she thinks but at the same time, she does back down. This trait made her super realistic and I could see a lot of myself in her - which just enriched the whole reading experience. 

All in all, I really enjoyed most things about this book. There were a few slow parts that I kind of skimmed over, which is the reason for the almost-perfect rating. I'll definitely read another book by Nelson in the future. Good "by the pool" read for the summer!
