Publisher's Summary

In Maid for the Billionaire Dominic Corisi knew instantly that Abigail Dartley was just the distraction he was looking for, especially since having her took a bit more persuading than he was used to. So when business forces him to fly to China, he decides to take her with him, but on his terms. No promises. No complications. Just sex.

Abby has always been the responsible one. She doesn't believe in taking risks; especially when it comes to men - until she meets Dominic. He's infuriating and intoxicating, a heady combination.

Their trip to China revives a long forgotten side of Abby, but also reveals a threat to bring down Dominic's company. With no time to explain her actions, Abby must either influence the outcome of his latest venture and save his company or accept her role as his mistress and leave his fate to chance. Does she love him enough to risk losing him for good?

    Story
    "A big okay"
    Would you try another book from Ruth Cardello and/or Kim Bubbs?

    I will try another book by Ruth Cardello. I am not sure about Kim Bubbs. Kim Bubbs was not so bad that I thought "I will never listen to a book by her again" but I was also not "I want to find another book narrated by her".


    What aspect of Kim Bubbs’s performance would you have changed?

    I thought I heard smacking of the narrator's lips. Then there was this background buzz that I know is not the fault of the narrator but of sound production. She just made the heroine sound too high pitched at times and it felt like she was trying to hard to make Dom's voice sound masculine.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was fine for a chick-lit. By the end though, I just wanted it to end. It was not my favorite book by Ruth Cardello.

    N/A

    Story
    "Average romance, predictable, glad it was on sale"

    Have to wonder as others have, why there were rave reviews for this book. It was very predictable, not even believable in parts. The narrator was good except I didn't care for the voice she gave the heroine. Will not listen to others in the series and definitely not spend a credit on them.

    Story
    "I think I might like audio books"
    If you could sum up Maid for the Billionaire in three words, what would they be?

    Fun. Romantic. Sweet.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The banter and the griping story


    What does Kim Bubbs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She adds a different voice than the one I had in my head. LOL Also, it is nice to just be able to sit back and let the story unfold.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many moments that moved me. Of course, when Dominic faced his feeling for Addy and confessed them to her was a very sweet and very moving scene.


    Any additional comments?

    I could not let go of the story until I had heard it all. Ruth Cardello is an amazing writer and Kim Bubbs a great narrator. they connected with me from start to finish. As for the romance: I found the main characters to be very well developed and utterly interesting. I even liked the villain (Stephan), as it is hinted that there is more to his desire to destroy Dominic than mere professional rivalry.A well deserved Five Stars.This was my first taste of audio books and I have certainly developed a taste for them.

    Story
    "Made for Audio"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Maid for the Billionaire to be better than the print version?

    I would consider it an adjunct. Nothing replaces anything


    What did you like best about this story?

    The depiction of the Alpha Male - Dominic. The author - Ruth Cardello - beautifully presents a strong male and bit by bit reveals the sensitive sweet side.


    What does Kim Bubbs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotion - action of words through hearing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes the book makes you laugh and wonder at times. Definitely keeps your interest - you won't be able to put it down until you finish.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this book. Thank goodness for this book - it introduced me to the wonderful works of Ruth Cardello. Thoroughly enjoyable.

    Story
    "Loved This Book..Audio was fantastic!"
    What did you love best about Maid for the Billionaire?

    The interaction between Abby and Dominic..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Maid for the Billionaire?

    when they meet..how Abby at first didn't treat him the way everyone else did..she was concerned about him just because he looked like he needed someone who cared.. and she even asked to see his ID cause she really didn't know who he was.


    What does Kim Bubbs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her personal touch in the reading of the story..the emotion..the caring..the concern


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How Abby cared about others..shown in the first meeting of Abby and Dom, and when it's explained she's helping her sister keep her job by doing it for her ..the goodness of her heart ..you can feel it..


    Any additional comments?

    I love a book to take me where I can't go..I'm not rich and never could live the lifestyle of the Male Character f the story..but thru Ruth's telling of it in such a believable way, I feel like I'm right there with them.

    "Silly story, silly voice"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I am used to silly romance stories and actually they can be fun. But this story is just fluff. It is made impossible to listen to by the little girl voice of the narrator.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ruth Cardello again?

    Possibly.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kim Bubbs’s performances?

    No.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    nausea.

    Story
    "Short book, quick love, even faster wrap up"
    Any additional comments?

    This story started really good. I was very engaged until it was evident the story was moving along faster than I could see plausible. The main characters found themselves in love after a short few days when he is supposedly a rake and a handsome billionaire one at that too. No one in that situation is that crazy, but I guess Ruth Cardello found it necessary to move the story along quickly to complete her project that could have been great had she spent a bit more time on it. So I lost interest about half way into the story. Passionate scenes were ok, but again I need more mental stimulation in a book.
    The narrator was also not very good. I felt she was about to fall sleep at any moment while narrating.

    Story
    "Unintentionally Hilarious!"

    Quite the silliest book I've listened to in a long time, made even more so by the narrator giving the heroine the squeaky little voice of a sexually precocious 8 year old, but Hey! it was on sale so my expectations were low to begin with; However I really did LMAO at the utterly preposterous storyline and ridiculous dialogue so Thanks for that. The suspense from waiting for the next disgorgement of nonsense brightened a dull day but I won't be repeating this extravagance.

    "Great book!"

    I loved the story. Such a lively, bolshy heroine in Abigail, a schoolteacher who undertook the challenge of caring for and changing the hero, billionaire Dominic's outlook on life. She really was quite remarkable.
    Oh, and the hero, just where do I find me one?
    The narration was good. I found that once I got used to the different voices I knew who the person was.
    Most enjoyable easy listen with sparks flying between the two main characters for most of the story.
    I like Ruth Cardello's style of writing and would recommend you giving this book a read or a listen.
