NEW RELEASE & REVIEW: Dating the Billionaire by Poppy Dunne

Title: Dating the Billionaire
Author: Poppy Dunne
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 12, 2017


I'm Dahlia Rossi, dating coach extraordinaire. I know how to land you the man of your dreams. Follow my rules, you'll meet the love of your life and have a gorgeous destination wedding in French Polynesia. Okay, that last one happened just the one time. But my rules work every time. I guarantee it.

1. The man makes the first move. Seems unfair? Life's unfair.
2. Never have sex on the first date. No, not even oral. And hands above the table, please.
3. Play hard to get, but don't make it too hard.

Solid rules, right? I thought they were. But then I met Jack Carraway, an impossibly sexy, frustratingly unpredictable billionaire, and broke them all. Everywhere. In an elevator. On a balcony. Beneath a gazebo, of all places.  

Whether I like it or not (spoiler alert: I like it!), Jack is taking me on wild adventure and we're writing a whole new set of rules. Like, always reserve your matching Harry Potter costumes a week in advance; wrestling swans is not as easy as it looks; and sometimes, the man of your dreams pops up in the most unlikely of places and has a really big...boat. 

After years of watching couples find love, it may be my turn. But is this spontaneous playboy the real thing, or just a fun detour around my predictable life? All this time I've been following my own rules and going to sleep alone, with nothing but my second slice of princess cake to keep me company.

But the more time I spend with Jack, the more I learn that rules...they're meant to be broken.

In love there's only one rule: there are no rules.

Caroline's Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐

“A life without rules? For a moment I freeze in panic. I’ve already broken so many of them.”

Dahlia Ross is a dating expert. She has rules to keep her life and herself under control. Without rules, her life was chaotic. She’s a matchmaker extraordinaire who finds it hard to meet someone for herself. When she meets Jack Carraway, his effect on her is such that she finds herself throwing caution to the wind and breaking all her own rules. To absolute, no-doubt-about-it smithereens. 

“Always be unpredictable. That’s the way to a woman’s heart. And into her pants. With Dahlia Rossi, it’s interesting that the pants come second.”

Jack Carraway flies by the seat of his pants. He’s an impulsive, cocky, happy-go-lucky guy who loves women and having fun. When he sees Dahlia for the first time, he’s captivated by her beauty. Then he’s captivated by her wit and fascinated by her rules. He’s surprised and scared by how much he wants her. And, not just for her body. 

“I think I’m catching feelings for this man.”

Dahlia knows Jack’s type. Add in the fact that they live on opposite sides of the country. This can only be a short-term thing. However, as they spend more time together and suddenly become entwined in each other’s lives, things really aren’t as simple as all that. 

This was fun, sexy rom-com with great banter (although I must say that there was almost a flippant feel to it). Dahlia and Jack are opposites when it comes to their outlook on life. Dahlia needs Jack to shake the rigidity of her life, and Jack needs Dahlia to bring some control to his. It was fun watching them bring balance to each other’s lives, featuring a few colourful side characters along the way.
