I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
This month we read Exposure to a Billionaire by Ann Menke for the Literary Ladies Book Club. Here’s a little synopsis from Goodreads:
In Exposure to a Billionaire, a tragic event opens the door for Anna St. James to realize her lifelong dream. With one step onto the luxurious private airplane of the world’s second richest man, Mr. Stuart Manning, Anna is swept up into a world of power, unlimited wealth, and yes, greed. Offered a salary beyond her wildest imagination, she becomes Mr. Manning’s personal flight attendant and dives headlong into this new life—magnificent yachts, exotic trips from Phuket to Paris, movie premieres with wardrobes and gifts to match. How could Anna ever go back to the life she once knew?
After reading this description, I was really intrigued and excited to read this, it sounded like a great Summer read. Sadly, the book didn’t live up to my expectations. I give Exposure to a Billionaire 2 stars.
The writing style was not my favorite, it felt rushed and like sentences were too short most of the time. I found it to be slightly materialistic…it was all about the luxury that Anna was experiencing and I would have preferred more vivid descriptions of the beautiful places she was traveling. I also felt like Anna would go on and on about luxuries and gifts but then the more substantial, interesting parts of the story line were rushed through. It’s one saving grace was that I found most of the characters charming and the selfless nature of the Mannings gave me hope for humanity. Hopefully there are really billionaires out there like them!
