He'll marry the maid to get $50 million but a secret could queer the deal.

Taylor Fitzgerald needs a last-minute bride.

On the eve of his twenty-fifth birthday, the billionaire’s son discovers that despite being gay, he must marry a woman before midnight or lose a fifty-million-dollar inheritance. So he hightails it to Las Vegas… where he meets the beautiful maid Ally May.

There’s just one rather significant problem: Ally is actually Alessandro Macias, son of a tough Brazilian hotel magnate. But if Ally keeps pretending to be a girl for a little while longer, is there a chance they might discover this marriage is tailor-made?

First Comes Marriage

4.0

Taylor Maid is my first Tara Lain read and I doubt it will be my last. The books premise is not entirely original but the authors take on the theme certainly is. Having to be married by a certain age in order to collect an inheritance takes on a whole new meaning in this book, and the MC's motives for wanting to collect his grandfathers legacy make him a likably altruistic character. 

Taylor Fitzgerald turns twenty-five tomorrow. This is cause for celebration as he will finally collect his $50,000,000 inheritance. There are LGBT shelters being built on the promise of that money and Taylor is excited to be finally able to fulfil his dreams. Having a homophobic father has made working in the family firm difficult, despite Taylor's obvious abilities. Being gay has made his home life strained and Taylor can't wait to get out from under his father's shadow. On the eve of his birthday, however, Taylor overhears his father and their lawyer discussing a barely visible caveat to the will. Taylor must be married to a woman he loves before his twenty-fifth birthday. He has hours to pull off the impossible and Las Vegas seems the perfect destination to marry by midnight. The fact that he's gay, and has no one in his life who could step up and help is, however, the far bigger problem 

Ally May is a beautiful maid at the Las Vegas hotel Taylor flees to. She has the voice of an angel and stirs unexpected feelings in Taylor. Could she be the answer to his problem? Talking to the shy, skittish maid is not a problem, convincing her to marry him within a few hours may be. When Taylor explains his problem to Ally, it becomes clear that she may have her own reasons for wanting to escape the hotel. She agrees to the marriage before midnight, but there are some secrets Ally is keeping from Taylor, and it's only a matter of time before at least one of them pops up. After returning to San Fransisco, convincing his father and his lawyer that this is truly a marriage for love is only the first problem Taylor must face. Discovering Ally is actually Alessandro Macias, son of a tough Brazilian hotel manager, explains his attraction, but does little to help Taylor's requirement to marry a women he loves before attaining his inheritance. 

Overall, Taylor Maid was a riveting, heartwarming and thoroughly enjoyable read. Unfortunately I found the book's beginning to be somewhat disjointed, which meant that it took me a little while to get fully invested in the story and it's MC's. By the second or third chapter, however, I absolutely loved Ally/Alessandro, and Taylor was fast growing on me as well. Their journey ended up completely captivating me until the highly satisfying conclusion. 
An original story, with a journey and resolution, that will leave a smile on your face long after you finish.
