COVER REVEAL: The Grumpy Billionaire by Tru Taylor

Now, the title seems a little too on the nose, lol, and I’m not much for second chance romances, but I’ve gotta admit that I’m intrigued… how exactly do you write a romance based on Sleeping Beauty? I recently checked out this series of fairytale-inspired romances, and I had a lot of fun reading Scarlett and the Big Bad Billionaire, so I’m interested in checking out more from the series. The newest installment is releasing on June 27th, so it’s the perfect time to jump back in! The books are all easily read as standalones, and you’ll have fun catching the fairytale elements that are incorporated. We’ll see how this one goes!


When we last saw each other eleven years ago, I would have bet everything I owned, would’ve bet my mother’s life that Reid Mancini loved me. I knew that because I loved him, too. Madly, passionately, with every fiber of my seventeen-year-old being. And that was why I made sure after our high school graduation night I would never see him again.

So much for that plan.

My new TV reporting job in Providence, Rhode Island is both good and bad. Good because it’s a great step up career-wise. Bad because it’s a little too close to home… and to him, the only guy who’s ever tempted me to let go and love someone.

Now my first love is all grown up with a full-grown man’s size and power and an oversized cocky attitude to match. With the world’s largest social media network to his name, he’s got all the fame and fortune he ever wanted and then some—and no doubt a harem-full of willing women falling at his feet. Oh, and he hates me. Not that I can blame him.

He has no idea why I abandoned him so suddenly… or how often I still think of him. He won’t find out either—not if I have anything to do with it.

Everything would’ve been fine if he’d just stuck to his famously aloof no-talking-to-the-media policy. But no, he’s decided to give his first ever television interview. And he says he’ll talk only to me.
If I could turn him down without losing my job, I’d do it in a heartbeat. That’s how desperately I don’t want to be in the same room with him, talking one-on-one, on camera for God’s sake. But in TV news, ratings rule—and hot, hard-to-get billionaires are ratings gold. So I have to spend a week with him getting the story. It’s the only way to keep my job.

I just hope I can keep my secrets in the process.

It’s only a week. I can do this. Seven days. Two ex-lovers. One last chance. Now we’ll see exactly how much of a difference a decade can make… and how impossible it may be to leave the past behind.
