Love and laughs all rolled into one wonderful read…
When I picked up this book, I had been having a tough time crawling out of a book hangover. I was just coming out of a stint where I read a number of books that were absolutely wonderful, but unbelievably emotional. Scrolling quickly (and desperately) through my Kindle, I was so thrilled to remember that I had one-clicked
this book. I can always count on Poppy to provide laughs, sarcasm and multiple unexpected elements (zoo animals and beetroot dirt cleanses anyone?) and she definitely didn’t disappoint.
Dahlia Rossi is a rule- oriented matchmaker. Her undiagnosed childhood ADHD has led her to become very list-focused and plan-centric as an adult. She guides her clients, very successfully, to find their soulmates by obeying her rules, but she herself remains single (and unknowingly unhappy) past age 30 (GASP!).
Jack Carraway is one of the few nationwide billionaires under 35. Oh, and he’s smoking hot, to boot. He works hard, but plays hard, too and has no intentions of settling down any time soon. He lives his personal life as he likes and rules mean very little to him.
But, we all know, love doesn’t play by the rules, either. One glance across the room of a Childhood Autism fundraiser and sparks fly. Dahlia breaks her no sex rule and sleeps with the sexy entrepreneur immediately and Jack breaks his no commitments trend and asks to see her again.
There’s an incident with a swan, some Harry Potter shenanigans, skating in a polar bear tank, a zebra on a roof, a mile high club initiation and more. But it’s not all fun and games and wizard spells. Can Dahlia get past Jack’s disregard of the rules and tendencies to act (in over the top ways) before thinking? Can Jack come to realize that while cos-play can be a good time, thinking things through and abiding by the law may, in the long run, actually be better sometimes? Do opposites attract? Are raspberry tarts spiritual conduits? Is it possible for a penguin to help you reconnect with your true love? Only Poppy Dunne has the answers. Oh, wait, you can learn them, too. But only if you one-click Dating the Billionaire.
