October 11, 2021 by Meghann Whistler

He’s a billionaire hiding a devastating diagnosis. She’ll do whatever it takes to help her sick, matchmaking mom. A freak accident throws them together, but will his big secret tear them apart?

When Ryan Lawson’s business partners force him to go on a wilderness retreat to come to terms with a shocking diagnosis, the last thing on Ryan’s mind is romance. But when he’s stranded in the woods with a sweet young event planner, all thoughts of business take a back seat to her girl-next-door appeal.

Fresh off a bad breakup, Zara Georgopoulos comes to Vermont to help her terminally ill mom work through her bucket list—not fall in love with a man who’s the exact opposite of her usual type. But when Ryan starts working his way into her heart with his kindness and generosity, she needs to make a decision: Trust the biotech billionaire not to walk all over her, or go back to guarding her heart.

Stuck in the wilds of Vermont, they forge a tenuous connection. When Ryan finally shares the truth about his illness, will it bring them closer together . . . or shatter Zara’s trust in him for good?

Inspired by 2 Corinthians 12:9, The Billionaire’s Secret is a sweet inspirational romance with a swoony hero, LOTS of entertaining banter, and a strong Christian message. Download your copy today!

My Review

What a great and believable billionaire story! I loved these two characters. Ryan was a smart man who ended up also being very wealthy through some successful biomedical innovations and business decisions throughout the years. But he was struggling with a health diagnosis he had recently received and the very real truth that all of his money could not solve his problems.

Zara was a nice woman who loved her mother and wanted to do all she could to care for her as she struggled with a recurrence of cancer. Zara was also coming off of a relationship that ended very badly.

These two characters had such a great connection right from the start, yet there were quite a few struggles for them to immediately overcome. I thought the flow to Zara and Ryan’s relationship was very realistic. They both had reasons to try friendship first, yet they were drawn to each other and wanted more. As Ryan’s wealth became obvious, I appreciated that Zara wasn’t interested in him because of his money. In fact, she wanted to make sure he wasn’t trying to buy her favor. Ryan’s diagnosis was something he was very worried about bringing up, thinking it could cause the end to any romantic possibilities. I thought the way things played out regarding his illness was also very realistic.

I loved this book from the start to the finish. There was a beautiful faith message woven into the novel and I so enjoyed the bonus epilogue that was available to sign up for at the end of the book. I am really looking forward to reading more books in this series.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    I probably wouldn’t do so good if I was stranded in the woods. I don’t like camping or living outdoors. Book sounds like a great read. I’d rather be in a cozy cabin reading the book.

  6. Roxanne C. says:

    I hope the suit that Ryan is wearing on the cover is not what he wears when he is in the woods.The story premise is quite interesting.

  7. Edna Decker says:

    Unable to get the bonus epilogue

    • Brittany says:

      Hi Edna, have you tried contacting the author on her website? This post is from nearly a year ago and I don’t have control of any bonus material from the author. Although I can say that I did access the bonus epilogue back then after reading the book and it worked fine at the time, so maybe she can help figure it out.
