If you HATE laughing, this hero isn’t for you.
If you want your male leads to grunt, thrust like jack rabbits, and have one-track minds that prefer a nice pair of t*ts to brains every hour of every day for the rest of forever, well...then, this hero still isn’t for you.
If you enjoy a good swoon, a hearty laugh, witty banter, some hot as f*@% f*@%ing, and an awesome HEA, then dive into this collection and never come up for air. Kline Brooks isn’t the kind of man you regret.

This audiobook is actually a collection of ‘Tapping the Billionaire’, ‘Tapping Her’, and the novella ‘Be My Billionaire Valentine’. I’ll review each separately below:

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.

This was hilarious fun. I was already familiar with Kline and Georgia because of reading the series out of order, so I was predisposed to love them. But I really think I would have regardless.

There are so many hilarious moments. In particular, their first date had me in stitches. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but it was hilarious moment after another. Georgia is a great character – she’s smart, feisty, a virgin (in a not annoying way), with ambition. And her parents! OMG what a hoot. Then we have Kline — Swoony Billionaire was the appropriate title for this collection, because he is most definitely swoon worthy. I love that he’s a billionaire but doesn’t live ostentatiously. Yes, he enjoys some comforts that your average person wouldn’t (like a car service and a private plan), but honestly he uses them because his demanding career necessitates it more than because he wants to live big.

Watching them fall in love was great – it had a You’ve Got Mail element to it, since they are also talking on a dating app, having met their separately and under different names/pictures. The confusion this causes is the basis for the conflict in the story and it’s done really well. Oh and if you like cats, Kline has a cat named Walter that also adds quite a bit of comedic fun.

This was narrated by C.J. Bloom (Georgia’s POV) and Eric Michael Summerer (Kline’s POV) and I loved their narration. They both sounded great together while delivering perfect voices for the characters.

Blissful in Bora Bora…
Kline and Georgia Brooks are fresh off their wedding and ready to indulge in the honeymoon of a lifetime.
Luxurious and private, their overwater bungalow in the South Pacific is the perfect backdrop for fun, sun, and enough sexiness to necessitate a dip in the clear water to cool down.
But marriage means more, and Kline and Georgia may have to find a different way to handle the heat.
Nowhere near normal in New York…
Thatcher Kelly loves wild women, and Cassie Phillips is about as wild as they come. Put them together and they are a match made in chaos.
Bound by cat-sitting responsibilities, Cass and Thatch have to find a way to right their mistakes—and wade through the dense cloud of sexual tension that seems to suffocate the room whenever they’re together.
Will they be able to resist?
And more importantly, will Walter be okay?

I think this novella worked better for me than it would have if I’d read in order. Because I already know Thatch and Cassie’s story, I enjoyed this introduction to their romance a bit more than I would have – I think at least – because it’s presented alongside Georgia and Kline’s honeymoon. I’m basing this on the fact that when I read a similar novella in the Thatch/Cassie collection, I wanted more of the new couple that was being setup. But it’s possible it’s also just because I like Georgia and Kline a bit better than I like Thatch and Cassie.

I enjoyed both couples in this novella. The luxury and adorable sexiness of Kline and Georgia’s honeymoon, juxtaposed by the hilarity and insanity of Cassie and Thatch’s absolute FAILURE at housesitting and cat sitting Walter. Georgia’s job is also getting more intense, which created a bit of tension, but not anything I was ever too worried about.

I love that for these novella’s they’re combining the narrators of Georgia and Kline’s story (C.J. Bloom and Eric Michael Summerer) with the narrators that take up Cassie and Thatch’s story (Elizabeth Hart and Jeremy York). It lets us get used to their POVs and I personally enjoy all the narrators and think they are good fits for their characters’ POVs.

This is exclusive to the Swoony Billionaire collection and I could not find a synopsis. But basically it's about Kline trying to convince Georgia she's not cursed on Valentines Day by celebrating it with her in May.

While I still really enjoyed being with Georgia and Kline, this story was mostly dumb. I wanted it to be hilarious and I think that was the goal, but it was a departure from their typical humor and mostly fell flat for me.

Georgia has a bad history with Valentine’s Day – so much so that she basically wants to ban them from ever doing anything on February 14th. She wants to stay home and just avoid the day entirely. Kline wants to undo her fears, so he plans a V-Day celebration in May. Sorry, that took the swoon factor too far and I swooned right into an eye roll. They are now crossing into that annoyingly in love category lol! I still love them, but I think that’s where it started falling apart for me. And then Tatch gets involved and their trip is a disaster that they basically run from. And I think I was supposed to find what happened funny, but I just wasn’t into it. So yeah, meh for me.

I did continue to love the narration though and I am glad I was able to listen to this final story with the swoony couple.


As much as I enjoyed Thatch and Cassie’s story, I enjoyed Kline and Georgia more! I read the books out of order and while it worked for the most part, I’d definitely recommend starting with this one, it sets you up for Tatch and Cassie and I think I would have enjoyed them even more if I’d read it in order. Overall, I think Georgia had me laughing more than Cassie and that’s what made this set a smidge better – she’s just has an innocent kind of humor that I couldn’t help but adore.

4.5 stars I loved it
