Book Review: Dating the Billionaire by Poppy Dunne

Dating the Billionaire
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.

Get ready to laugh out loud! Dating the Billionaire is a sexy, quirky, filled to the brim with laughter romantic comedy. Take one unpredictable, sexy billionaire and add one rule following professional dating expert and you get a menagerie of comical events.

Dahlia has rules, in fact she has 67 rules for dating. Dahlia is a "Professional dating expert, helping happy ever afters manifest for the last ten years."  However after meeting sexy billionaire Jack Carraway Dahlia puts her rules aside for some hot, steamy action. 

Jack is impulsive, spontaneous and besotted by Dahlia. He helps her move past her rules to add a little fun and spontaneity to her life. It's all bi-coastal fun until Jack gets a crazy idea in his head and commits a whimsical crime. Jack's impulsivity goes a little too far for Dahlia. Now Jack has to make up for his crimes in order to win her back. 

I enjoyed the dual POVs. Jack Carraway killed me with his healthy self-esteem, it only made me love him more.  I loved the pop-culture reference sprinkled throughout the story. Just in time for Harry Potter's twentieth birthday, we are treated to one last epic battle between Hermione and Voldemort. Let me stop here and say you want to read this book. It's a fun, humorous romance with a side of quirky. 5 Stars!
