Publisher's Summary

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.

If you could sum up Tapping the Billionaire in three words, what would they be?

Hilarious, Genius and Brilliant

Who was your favorite character and why?

Georgie Girl, she just has a way of making me smile. Listening to the crazy stuff that comes out of her subconscious is hilarious. Her and Kline together is perfect. M&M couldn't of don't a better job when selecting partners for this series.

Have you listened to any of CJ Bloom and Eric Michael Summerer ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listened to other performances by both CJ Bloom and Eric Michael Summerer's including the second in the Billionaire Bad Boy series, I think they both do an amazing job. Their pitch and emotional input is perfect. It draws the listener in. I didn't want to put it down once I started listening to it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

What a refreshing rom-com!

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.

Sweet Funny Romance!!!

What made the experience of listening to Tapping the Billionaire the most enjoyable?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tapping the Billionaire?

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.

Which character – as performed by CJ Bloom and Eric Michael Summerer – was your favorite?

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.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to it all in one sitting!

Any additional comments?

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!

WOW!

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.

Okay, yes.

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.

Seriously funny, the side characters made this book hilarious. the romance side wasn't half bad either. Liked the narrator's, both made the story come to life.

Boring and crude

This book was so cringy and cliche. The author was trying to be funny but failed. I don't mind swearing but it was every other word. The narrators were alright. I preferred the man's voice to the women's. Overall, it was a waste of my time listening and I fell asleep last night it was so boring.

Hilarious!

Would you consider the audio edition of Tapping the Billionaire to be better than the print version?

Kinda? Sometimes during the reading of the text got me a little wired up and confused. I think also when it came to the main character and her best friend, the narrator got a little too excited I guess? She was going very fast and made it hard to understand.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tapping the Billionaire?

The benadryl incident lol So funny!

Have you listened to any of CJ Bloom and Eric Michael Summerer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Don't drink benadryl & date

Any additional comments?

I thought this book was great, so much fun and the sex was super hot!

Perfect timing!

Love it! Kline learned well from his parents in being responsible with his money (even though he's a billionaire). Georgia has no luck with men. Good thing she has to enroll in a dating app as part of her employment. The outcome of the dating app is humorous. I highly recommend this RomCom and very much worth my credit.
