Dating the Billionaire
by Poppy Dunne
A Romantic Comedy
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.
- The man makes the first move. Seems unfair? Life’s unfair.
- Never have sex on the first date. No, not even oral. And hands above the table, please.
- 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.

Nothing great in life happens without a little risk.
Dating the Billionaire has all the fun, flirty, steamy, sweet moments that I have come to expect from Poppy Dunne. Lighthearted and entertaining, it’s a quick, easy read you are sure to enjoy.
Dahlia is a professional dating expert. She does a good job at reading people and has made several perfect matches over the past ten years. Her “Commandments of Dating” include the rules she uses when sets a couple up and it’s proven successful for everyone…except her. Dahlia hasn’t found “the one” yet much to her dismay, but she is happy to watch her clients find their HEA.
Jack is a billionaire who made his own money after graduating from MIT. He’s handsome and cocky but you can’t help but like him. He lives his life the way he wants and doesn’t like following rules. He enjoys women and settling down isn’t something he thinks about. When he meets Dahlia there is an instant spark and he knows he wants to get to know her better. What happens when one night with Jack is all it takes to throw Dahlia’s ironclad rules out the window?
This book is fun and witty. Dahlia was a hoot and I loved watching as she let go and live a little. She was out of her element yet she still goes with it, and seeing her breaking her own rules was satisfying. Jack wants Dahlia and I love the way he gets her to forget about her rules, even if it’s for a short time. He was nerdy, swoony, and a total sweetheart. He isn’t afraid of his feelings, has a huge heart, and would do anything for the people he loves. When he loves, he loves big.
Jack and Dahlia work well together and bring out the best in one another. Their banter is fun and flirty, and the sexy time is hot. I loved watching their relationship go from a one-night stand to something more. When the conflict comes into play, it isn’t too angsty or drawn out but I felt like Dahlia was a bit quick to react. In the end, I liked how it played out and thought Dahlia and Jack fit together better with the changes they made in their lives.
Overall, Dating the Billionaire is a fun, light read and I can’t wait for more from Poppy Dunne.
