Publisher's Summary

There’s no such thing as a casual romance in this unforgettable Accidental Billionaires novel by New York Times best-selling author J. S. Scott.

After finishing a hard-won medical residency, Owen Sinclair now lives his dream as a family physician. The windfall that brought him newfound wealth has also made handsome Dr. Sinclair the town’s most eligible bachelor. But Owen’s eyes are on Layla, his onetime best friend, his clinic’s dedicated nurse practitioner, and the one woman in Citrus Beach who has no interest in either his body or his billions.

In high school, Owen and Layla were always there for each other. Layla could confess almost anything to him. But wanting more than friendship was a confession too far, and Layla’s teenage longing was crushed in a heartbeat.

Two buried hurts are now in need of mending, and Owen has a proposition - if Layla is game. It’s a matter of trust as they discover so much more about the past, each other, and themselves. It’s not too late. Maybe they can make up for lost time. A love this true is worth the wait.

Loved it!

Owen and Layla’s story is one of heartache and soul crunching dismay that comes out so beautifully, you’re smiling and laughing by the end. The story holds true for the strong alphas you’ve grown to love throughout the series, and I hope there will be more stories to come about Riley’s brothers as you grow to know more about Jax in this book. Definitely a book to savor!

Heartwarming journey !


Like the previous books in the Series, Endeared is a fast easy enjoyable read that leaves your heart feeling good and a smile on your face. I'm a big fan of J.S. Scott and always eagerly await her next book release. She has this incredible ability to just draw me into her stories from the very first word and Owen and Layla's story was no exception. Her writing is effortless and flows so beautifully that it’s an absolute pleasure to read her books. I listened to the Audio version and Elizabeth Powers did an awesome job narrating and bringing this story to life. If you like your romances with plenty of heat, brimming with heart and depth, full of passion with swoon-worthy alphas who have met their match, then The Accidental Billionaires Series is for you. Cannot wait to see what's coming next...hopefully Jax Montgomery's story will be the next.

Loved this series

I loved this series. I would like to thank J.S.Scott for writing the Accidental Billionaire series. It was light and exactly what I needed. There were heavy topics addressed, and dealt with. I enjoyed listening and reading with Elizabeth Powers.

Enjoyably and entertaining read

Another good enjoyable addition to the series. I bought the first three and I am happy that I can continue to read the rest of the series on KU. I love audio books so having the audio version included is a big bonus.

Couldn't put it down.

J S Scott is one of my favorite authors. I have read all of her books and like this one I didn't want it to end. the love stories draw you and you want their love to win in the end. I'm looking forward to her next book release.

enjoyable

I love this series. The Sinclair's and their partners, I just can't seem to get enough of. This book was Owen and Layla's story and I've got to say I enjoyed the 2nd chance friends to lovers trope. It made me laugh and cry and I was so cheering for their successful navigation of the relationship. I listened via audible and I enjoyed the narration - the only improvement would have been to have two narrators, one male and one female.
