Tapping the Billionaire (Bad Boy Billionaires Series, Book #1) by Max Monroe
BXTCHES Gotta Warn: Here’s the deal. I actually wasn’t going to give this book a chance. Why, you ask? Because I feel like so many books I come across lately are. . .Billionaire this OR Billionaire that, you know what I mean? And, unfortunately, most have the same premise, so my initial reaction was. . .uggg, not again. And, I even took the cover into consideration (how great is that cover, by the way). Oh, how wrong this BXTCH was. This book is so fan-fucking-tastic, I just hope I have the right words to describe how giddy I am over Tapping.
Tapping will be told through both Kline and Georgia’s POV.
Kline Brooks is the President and CEO of Brooks Media, making him fall into billionaire status. Of course, that title alone comes with lots of pussy, right? Well, yes it does, but Kline Brooks isn’t your typical billionaire playboy. He may be magical in the bedroom, but he does like to practice monogamy and give the lady what is deserved.
Georgia Cummings is the director of marketing for Brooks Media and their latest venture is a dating app called TapNext and as a single employee of the company, she is required to have her own TapNext profile which is how her relationship actually begins with one very single and very hot Kline Brooks. It’s just unbeknownst to either one of them that they are actually speaking to one another through the dating app. So, when Kline is somewhat desperate for a date to a charity event, he’s a little shocked that he’s never really noticed just how spectacularly beautiful Georgia Cummings is.
Asking Georgia out may have been a way for Kline to avoid any blind dates his mom was set to arrange, but after a night out, some lime juice, and what may very well have been an overdose on Benadryl, Kline knows a good thing when he sees it and he knows that Georgia is the real deal. So with that, date #2 is quickly in the works.
While Georgia and Kline are hitting it off pretty wonderfully, their TapNext profiles are still engaging in back and forth banter, in fact, Georgia is spilling some pretty personal secrets to Kline, while seeking any advice he can offer her regarding her blooming relationship with well, Kline. Confusing? So here goes. Georgia is TAPRoseNext and Kline is BAD_Ruck. . .their profile pics are of one another’s best friends, so they have no idea that when they’re engaging in convo through the app, that they are actually speaking to one another. I’m sure you can imagine where this is eventually going to go right? Because even the best rom com needs a bit of drama.
The ones that surround Kline and Georgia in Tapping, add such a deep and hilarious layer to an already remarkably told story, you’ll find yourself falling even deeper in love. We get a pretty good introduction to Cassie (Georgia’s roomie and BFF) and Thatch (Kline’s go to), which is good, because their story is book #2 and after enjoying their personalities in this book, you know immediately that Cassie and Thatch together is going to be sensational. Get ready to even fall in love with both sets of ‘rents. Georgia’s mom is a sex therapist and let’s just say growing up in the Cummings home with a sex therapist as your mom gets you sent to places such as masturbation camp (not really what it’s called, but you get the gist). Georgia has an older brother, Will, who is an ER doctor and the one who tagged it “masturbation camp”, so you can only imagine the kind of relationship that they have with one another. I would’ve liked to have a bit more Will, but that’s just me being a selfish BXTCH. Kline is not your typical billionaire, he is very down to earth and not at all extravagant and once you meet his parents, you know exactly where he gets it from. A lot of times the surrounding characters in a book are just pieces that come together and really just fill in the empty spaces, sometimes they fit, sometimes they don’t. But in Tapping, they truly all fit together to form the best puzzle possible.
Oh mercy me, the sexual chemistry between Kline and Georgia will have you setting the sheets on fire. I should probably tell you that Georgia is still a proud owner, maybe not proud, but an owner nonetheless, of her V-Card. Something that TAPRoseNext has decided to not only share with BAD_Ruck, but seek advice from regarding her purity status. It may take Kline and Georgia a bit of time to get to the actual act of punching the card, but the getting there is almost as hot and once that door is opened and explored, Kline and Georgia together. . .in bed. . .exploring. . .loving. . .fucking. . .will most certainly set the loins a blazing and the toes a curling.
Tapping gives you everything one could want in a romantic comedy. We get a fierce leading lady, a super hot leading man (who’s not an asshole), a supporting cast who holds their own, comedy that will have you laughing out loud and sex that may make you a bit jealous. And to think, I almost passed this book up because of the title. One would think I learned absolutely nothing in elementary school. Whoever Max Monroe is (check out the website), they have done such a remarkable job with Tapping, not only can I not wait for Banking the Billionaire to be released, I actually may be salivating in anticipation. While we wait for Thatch and Cassie, we will be graced with Tapping Her, a novella coming soon, stay tuned. One-click. . .you will be thanking me.
