I've heard loads about this book and it's unknown authors but honestly it didn't really intrigue me terribly much. But it went on sale prior to the release of the second in the series and I am nothing if not a sucker for $0.99 books. I'll admit that I was pleasantly surprised with how freaking funny it initially was. It made up for the typically predictable billionaire storyline. The book itself was just too long for what it was. I got bored about halfway through and skimmed until the big secret was finally revealed and we could move on and go back to be amusing for the last few pages.
So. Not terrible, not amazing. I'll probably read the next book if that just so happens to also go on sale for that low, low price of $0.99 before the third book releases.
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.
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.
Kline is a self-made billionaire that doesn’t have time for romance. So when he’s in a pinch and needs a date to a charity fundraiser, he asks the first person he sees, his ad exec, Georgia. The two have had an excellent working relationship in the two years Georgia has been with the company, but in that minute, Kline sees her for the beauty she really is. She accepts and the two embark on a whirlwind romance.
The couple are met with a bounty of challenges, Georgia’s virginity and Kline’s cat Walter, to name a couple, but also the fact that Kline himself has met someone through his company’s dating app. Soon the app causes awkwardness between them, but Kline has a secret he’s keeping from Georgia, will his failure to come clean be the end of their relationship?
Unfortunately I’m over the over the top books that seem to be the “in” thing right now. I like humor and quick wit but many of the “humorous” moments were groan-worthy and cheesy. I really wanted to love this story and there were several things I did like, but the big plot twist was lame, and the resulting drama also felt overly angsty. And the sex scenes…it’s rare that I just skim, but one can only read so many before they get bored and there were a few that I skipped for the most part.
I will continue with the series though, the story was well written and there were things I liked about the characters, I just wish it weren’t quite so silly in their delivery.
