Blind dates? Online dating profiles? Been there, done that.
Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the internet is not her friend.
No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can’t find her way out of this weird, alternate universe where men think d*ck pics are a replacement for small talk and getting to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good…
But why can’t she stop fantasizing about him?
Kline Brooks is the quintessential billionaire bad boy—dark, styled, short hair, muscles for days, and a panty-dropping smile.
As his employee, he won’t touch her with a ten foot pole.
But she won’t touch him either.
Too bad their hormones missed the memo.
Sometimes a girl wants some humour in her romance novel, especially when she’s recently read a few serious books and needs to cleanse her palate, so to speak. So with that in mind, I bought a copy of TAPPING THE BILLIONAIRE because of two things: the book has an insane amount of positive reviews on Amazon and Goodreads; and the hot guy on the cover is laughing while holding his d*ck. If that doesn’t scream “Buy Me!”, I don’t know what does. But there’s a reason I tend to avoid books that have huge hype, because usually I find that it doesn’t live up to that hype, and I’m sad to say that TAPPING THE BILLIONAIRE did not live up to my expectations.
What didn’t I like about it? While certain scenes in the book were funny, most of the time the humour felt forced. The conflict was very easy to predict and you just knew the deception was going to blow up in Kline’s face. I felt that some things were a little cheesy and/or over-the-top, whether it was an event, a person’s reaction, a conversation, etc. Finally, it took me a few chapters to get into the writing style.
So what did I love about it? I loved the intro, where Kline is bragging about his achievements, good looks and how great he is in bed; it was catchy and helped set the tone. I loved the scene where Georgia is providing over-the-phone commentary of a football game to Kline and Thatch. Finally, I loved the scene where Georgia suffers an allergic reaction to lime juice and then almost overdoses on Benadryl…on her first date with Kline.
“Are you naked?”
“The bed made me do it.”
“My bed made you get naked?”
“He’s a real pervy bastard, but who was I to argue?”
Onto the characters. This series is called Billionaire Bad Boys, but Kline is definitely not a bad boy. He’s never been a manwhore and he prefers having a girlfriend to serial dating. He’s a kind person and a well-respected boss. Simply put, he’s a nice guy who happens to be rich. I can’t really say much about Georgia because she wasn’t very memorable, other than she’s a virgin who happens to be very well-versed in every dirty word relating to sex and the male member.
TAPPING THE BILLIONAIRE is told in dual POVs, with the epilogue being told in the POVs of their best friends, Cassie and Thatch, who will get the next book. It is part of a series but it can be read as a stand-alone…sort of. It looks as though each couple will get their own book, but in between the books there will be novellas. Whether these novellas will be stand-alones or not, I’m not sure, but I do know that the first novella will be about the couples from books 1 and 2. As I said at the start, this book has amazing reviews and a lot of people have loved it, but I didn’t feel the love.
