★ SYNOPSIS ★
As far as Nina Beaumont is concerned, money ruins everything. Leave it to her wealthy family to screw up her professional life and her personal life. When she crashes and her car sinks, sending her identification and all her belongings spiraling into the watery abyss, Nina sees her chance to escape.
And stumbles into a job with the hottest man she’s ever met…as his maid.
Between running an inn, caring for his grandmother, and trying to keep the dirty-dealing Beaumont Corporation from stealing his land, Joe Farina’s plate is full. He doesn’t have time for romantic entanglements—especially not with the suspiciously bad maid he just hired, no matter how much he needs her…both in and out of his bed.
Screwing with her life is one thing, but Nina’s not about to let her family screw with Joe. That is, if she doesn’t lose him when he finds out who she really is.

★ MY REVIEW ★
His Millionaire Maid is a cute read by Coleen Kwan. It brings together two people in circumstances that you wouldn’t really expect. The writing itself is impressive. You’re not weighed down by verbosity and the characters themselves are spot on. This is another middle ground novel for me because I can’t say too much about it, or too little. It didn’t bowl me over, but it didn’t underwhelm me either. It fits in that perfect groove of a good read to pick up, sit down and relax.
Joe’s life is hectic, when the synopsis tells you he had a lot on his plate, it’s not fibbing. He’s the dependable go-to guy for seemingly everyone in town. Not only does he not have time for romance, he’s more likely to run in the opposite direction of it. So when his new temp maid shows up late, with duckweed in her hair and not seeming to have a clue how to actually -be- a maid.. why is it that he is instantly intrigued?
Nina, for me, really was the epitome of poor little rich girl, -at first-. That almost put me off the book completely, but I stuck with it due to her hilarious moments and I’m thankful I did. She even touches on that and calls herself as much. Nina is different though, then your typical silver spoon heroine that has everything handed to her. She -wants- to make her own way and prove herself, however, her family just isn’t letting her do that. She want to prove herself and show them, especially her father, that she’s more than just fluff and wants to get along on more than just the merit of being his daughter. So what better way then to go off the grid and hide out? I mean, it obviously has to help (somehow) that you accidentally run your car off the road and it sinks with all your identification in it, right? >__>
Nina walks into Joe’s B&B looking for directions and instead finds a hot man, standing there in “Dexter and DeeDee” mom gloves. (You may need to look that up, but trust me, it’s worth it.) She’s instantly enamored, and while he’s curious about the hairdo, so is he. It’s not love at first sight, or even like, but it’s definite interest. These two butt heads from the get go, but there is this simmering underneath it that is more or less waiting to erupt if they give it the least chance.
If you’re looking for a good, fun read, give this book at shot! It’s not completely intense, it is well written and the story is a nice escape.
