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.
The writing is quite funny, and had me laughing at times. But, the love story and funny dialog wasn’t enough to detract from the fact that so much of this storyline is unbelievable. Security footage can’t zoom in like that! Especially enough to be able to read text from a file (likely standard size 12 font). You can’t have full sentence conversations while you’re in the middle of being intimate!
The main conflict at the end happens because Georgia discovers something about Kline, and it upsets her. Instead of having a conversation about what she saw, what she thinks, and giving him a chance to explain, she flies home, turns off her phone, refuses to check her email and resigns from her position in his company, effective immediately. She turns her phone back on for 10 minutes at a time, a few times a day, and is upset that Kline isn’t trying to get in contact with her. So Kline has to resort to his “grand gesture” (which is ridiculous) and suddenly, Georgia isn’t spitting mad anymore, but happily accepting a marriage proposal. It drives me bananas when adult characters in stories break up or leave each other over a misunderstanding or discovery that could easily be resolved by a conversation.
Overall, this book was just okay for me. There are a lot of extraneous conversations and internal dialogs that had me skimming the pages. The intimate scenes are plentiful, but not so often that it gets tedious. If you’re looking for a vapid, quick read, this one isn’t a terrible way to spend a day.
Tapping the Billionaire is the first book in the Bad Boy Billionaires series. It is an adult contemporary romance, which is heavy on humor.
The narrators are Georgia (26) and Kline (the billionaire, 34).
Who is Max Monroe is one of the biggest questions amongst romance readers. Normally a billionaire book would not appeal to me (I am not a fan of books that are all sex with less plot). But I wanted to see what everybody was talking about. So when the book went on sale I did not hesitate to pick it up.
I was not a big fan of the intro because to me it was too graphic and it gave away too much of the story. I am the type of person who hates knowing the ending before I start a book.
Kline owns Brooks Media and a dating app called Tapnext. Both of these companies are very integral to the story.
This book is light and funny. And I enjoyed that aspect of the book immensely.
I really liked both Georgia and Kline. I can't decide if I liked the Tapnext part of the story. It was fun at times. But also a bit too much.
The first part of this book had way too much sex for my taste. I suspected that would be the case. But interestingly from 60% on there was more story and less sex.
I never start a new book until I am finished my previous book. However I stopped reading this book at 60% to pick up a new release. And I ended up not finishing it for 2 weeks. This book is charming and fun. However, I am not a huge fan of misunderstandings and needless conflict.
Interestingly, the epilogue was from two new POVs. Interesting idea. I think I would like to try the novella #1.5 and book #2 (with 2 different narrators).

Georgia has no luck in the dating world. She doesn’t know where she is going wrong only that she’s in love with her boss. However there is one obstacle in her path, he doesn’t seem to know that she actually does exist. She has resigned herself to being single. She’s also messaging Ruck on a messaging network, she’s masquerading as Rose. Are you with me so far? I hope so!
Kline slowly starts to see Georgia in a different light and this makes for some hilarious scenes, honestly there will be moments in this book where you can’t stop giggling from the amount of sass and cheeky comments that are made.
The scenes with Walter the cat has me in stitches, poor Kline however then Kline does make some seriously idiotic moves and when he finds out that Georgia is Rose, instead of telling her, he just dug a biggr hole for himself. Dude, no, no no!!
Still I loved it, and I adore Will and Thatch and Cassie and for some reason I see them two fighting it out for Cass’s affections in an upcoming book..but I could be wrong, let’s see what happens.
For the first book by Max Monroe..these two authors have created a tale that makes me laugh, smile and cry at times. I thoroughly recommend this book!
The story is about a successful man, Kline Brooks, who has set up an Internet dating site and his Head of Marketing, Georgia Cummings. They have signed up for the service both using their friend's photo to check out who is responding. Of course they start an online friendship, and meanwhile he asks her to accompany him to a formal event and they embark on a hot and romantic relationship. Of course the online relationship comes back to haunt them, but it is a standalone book with a happy ending.
There are a few groan worthy puns, like Georgia's father's name Dick Cummings, but the book is a humorous read and the sex scenes are hot, hot, hot. The mother is a scream, and the friends and brother round out the characters.
It's the first in the series and the next are not free or on Kindle Unlimited. If they were available as a box set at a reduced price I'd be sorely tempted to buy them, but as they are currently they are expensive for books that aren't very long.
Kline Brooks is gorgeous, rich, and an all-round good guy. He’s not your typical womanising billionaire. He’s monogamous but taking his time looking for his HEA. He never expected to find it in Georgia Cummings – his Director of Marketing.
“I’ve got this gut feeling that he’s some kind of wonderful.”
Georgia Cummings has worked for Kline for two years. Although she acknowledges that he’s handsome, they’ve never really been on each other’s radar. Until, suddenly, they were.
Once Kline noticed Georgia, he really started to ‘see’ her. And, he couldn’t unsee her. He wanted to get to know her. The more he knew, the more he wanted her. Kline is nothing how Georgia expects a billionaire to be. He’s very down-to-earth, practical and incredibly sweet!
The only thing they don’t realise is that they have already connected virtually – via a dating app.
This was such an adorable, funny, and hot-as-hell story! I loved Georgia! I loved Kline! I loved Georgia and Kline together! I smiled my way through the novel. And, even though there was a part where there was nothing to smile about and they were both hurting so bad and in agony, I knew that they were just TOO good together to not find their way back to each other. Fantastic dialogue, fab characters throughout the novel, and great story pace. ADORED IT!!
Georgia has no luck dating but finds enjoyment looking at her sexy boss and chatting to someone on her tappit app, one her boss insists that all employees sign up to as it's good marketing for their app.
Kline Brooks is the perfect boss. He doesn't leer at his female staff or objectify them and one of his rules is not to date his employees.
Desperate to escape whoever his mother has organised as his date for an event, Kline asks the first female employee he sees to go with him which is Georgia so he isn't actually lying to his mother when he says he already has a date.
Reluctantly Georgia agrees to go and is having a really great time until a disaster occurs which results in her almost being hospitalised but instead, she ends up in Kline's bed.
Georgia is sweet and sassy and her one liners are hillarious.
Kline is a true gentleman and so sexy and he soon realises that Georgia is nothing like any woman he's ever known before. As their relationship develops he knows she's the one but there's a small secret he's keeping that may get in the way.
I loved this book. It's a fun and sexy read and I can't wait to read the others in the series.
