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 dick 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.
Except he isn't. As his employee, he won't touch her with a 10-foot pole. And she won't touch him either. Too bad their hormones missed the memo.

"I highly recommend this one. Fans of romantic comedies, billionaire romances, and sweet and charming reads will certainly want to try out this book." (Pretty Little Book Reviews)
I have to admit I didn't know much about this book going in, so the fact I was laughing all the way through it was a really pleasant surprise! The story was sweet and the writing flowed beautifully, but what most grabbed me about this audiobook was the comedic timing of the narrators, particularly CJ Bloom. I often find rom-com humour can get a little cringe-worthy, especially on audio, but there was none of that in Tapping the Billionaire. A really refreshing listen.
I love the crazy couple
The love scenes were rather moving
The romance of the couple was sweet
Max should get busy writing a hell of a lot more books he is great
"Sweet Funny Romance!!!"
I had already read this book before I listened to the audiobook, but I love that I get to experience it in another medium. This book is not what you'd expect it to be. Billionaire? Check. Bad boy? Nope. Womanizing arrogant jerk? Not even close. But it will make you laugh and it will make you smile.
One of the most memorable moments came when Kline called Georgia from his flight and asked her to give a play-by-play of a football game going on that he and Thatch had a bet on. She, not being a football fan, does not know any football lingo so they have to interpret her commentary, including her very funny nicknames for the players in the game. I was laughing so hard!
There's also a scene where Geogia has an allergic reaction and takes way too much Benadryl.
I really enjoyed all of the characters, but I have to say that I have a soft spot for Kline, and Thatch and Cassie were hilarious best friends. Both CJ Bloom and Eric Michael Summerer did a wonderful job! I've listened to both of them before and always enjoy their performances.
I listened to it all in one sitting!
In Tapping the Billionaire Kline Brooks is the owner of a large media company and Georgia Cummings is the head of the marketing department. One night Kline is at work and his mother calls him to tell him that she set him up with a date for an upcoming gala, not wanting to go with yet another self-obsessed floosie Kline tells his mother he already has a date. Georgia is working late at the office listening and singing along (to a very inappropriate song... It deals with her neck, her back, her...) when Kline walks in and asks her to be his date to an upcoming gala - she eventually agrees.
Let me just say that this book wasn't what I was expecting, and I mean that in the best way possible. It's got a very strong male and female lead which I really enjoyed. The billionaire romance is starting to get a little saturated but this was fresh and new. Yes, there are cliches, but that's part of what makes romance so enjoyable. There isn't a lot of angst, but it's also not all sex scenes, while there is a bunch of sex there is also a lot of substance inbetween. We get to see the day to day life of the characters, work and home life (there is an asshole cat named Walter in it), so it feels like you're invested and you care. This book also doesn't take itself too seriously, it's fun and funny and the perfect escape. I highly recommend it!
well written, great 'repartee' a really enjoyable listen...and I really enjoyed the narration duo choice.
Normally I won't buy books with 'billionaire' anywhere in the title, but tried this one based on the reviews. It's a pretty good book, and frankly there was no reason for this guy to be a billionaire other than to prove that he's successful and humble. Oh, and to make possible a grand gesture over a contrived misunderstanding. For me, clever banter can overcome a multitude of ills, so I did like this book.
Did I like it enough for a credit? No. Sale? Yes.
Oh my, this was a complete surprise. I almost passed it up bc of the front cover. It looked as though it'd be corny and lame. But man oh man was I wrong. I was both laughing and crying during it. THIS is my dream love story.
"FUNNY AS HELL"
GOD YES, this book is the funniest thing I've listen to since starting audible.
When her face had swollen up like a balloon.
"No More Billionaires"
Evidently the author believes that a rich and handsome male character is sufficient for creating an entertaining young adult novel. Of course, that suggests that women are mostly mercenary and men are mostly shallow. Boring!
"Not for me!"
This was hard to listen too, maybe it was the subject, the language or all of it. I wasn't engaged I gave it 5 chapters and I was out. I don't like the two different narrator setup. If you're into a vulgar, over sexed story go for it.
"FUNNY, SEXY, AND HOT!!!!!"
The comment about being wait listed for heaven.
Dean the funny, gay , and flamboyant friend.
Cassie will just say anything that comes to her mind.
Worth the listen. Getting ready to read the next book in the series.
"Funny and HOT"
This book is laugh out loud funny. Kinda predictable but super cute and pretty sexy.
"So hot and funny!"
This is by far one of the best books I've listened to in a very long time. I could not stop laughing! Wonderfully written!
The best book I read in ages. So funny. I recommend this book to everyone. Well done !!
This book was an easy listen, funny too ! Would recommend to any lover of sexy books
