Maid for the Billionaire: Book 1 of the Legacy Collection

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.

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
    "Romantic, funny, happy, sad a great story!"
    What did you love best about Maid for the Billionaire?

    This book starts off as a romance, however, soon it is steaming headlong at a great pace, very hot and sexy, but don’t be fooled people, the romantic/sexy scenes are the backdrop to a really good story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a joint review by myself and my husband who listened in too.

    Romantic, funny, happy, sad, a myriad of emotions all rolled into one audiobook, well, that is what you get when you’re in love – right?

    When a case of mistaken identity throws two strong minded people together it’s a recipe for what? The love story of the century! Abby is strong minded and sexual but not one to be walked over. Dominic is extremely rich, very powerful and used to getting is own way, either by charm or utilising his immense wealth. Infatuated, Dominic has certainly met a challenge in the sensible Abby, but in spite of herself – she’s smitten with him too, and when she gets the opportunity to travel with him on a business trip to China she takes it – but on his terms.

    This book starts off as a romance, however, soon it is steaming headlong at a great pace, very hot and sexy, but don’t be fooled people, the romantic/sexy scenes are the backdrop to a really good story.

    Kim Bubbs, the narrator, has a wonderful voice which is very easy to listen to and makes the characters sound great.


    Any additional comments?

    We loved it! My husband says ‘Shades of Grey’ I say ‘Maid in Manhattan,’ either way it was a definite hit. However, you’ll have to listen to it yourself to decide.

    "Always LOVED Dominic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book because it was like the book became a movie more so that just an audible book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dominic is my favorite character because of his arrogance and the way he is learning as he go. He is a protector by blood.


    What about Kim Bubbs’s performance did you like?

    Kim did a wonderful job and put expression in each character.

    Story
    "The beginning of an AMAZING series ...."

    You will absolutely love this series!!! The hot romance between Dominick Corisi and Abby Dartley in "Maid for the Billionaire" will make your heart do flip flops! Dominic intends their relationship to be “just sex” with no complications at all! Now Abby is not the kind of girl to enter this type of a relationship lightly….so the fun begins. Then Abby uncovers a threat to Dominic's company and jumps into action to help him save his company. I absolutely loved reading this book, but listening to the audio version of the book was AMAZING!! After you have finished this book, you will run to download Book 2, "For Love or Legacy!" The relationship between Nicole and Stephan will have every twist imaginable - revenge, lust, sex and love!! Book 3, "Bedding the Billionaire," will have you wanting more and more as Jake teaches Lil many many things, but mostly how to fall into love and into bed with her Billionaire! Book 4, "Saving the Sheikh" is the frosting on the cake! Two leaders from different countries come together on a dare and what happens between them is not only daring, but humorous and everlasting!! Take my word for it, you will absolutely love this series! I did not want it to end, and the way Ruthie Cardello keeps interjecting the characters into each book from the earlier books, makes you feel like you are reading one continuous love story. Ruthie's books are truly fantastic - I guarantee you will love them!!!

    Story
    "A waste of time."
    What disappointed you about Maid for the Billionaire?

    The main characters by word or deed displayed no credible grown. They repeated the same mistakes, fell back into the same old patterns and the mental gymnastics were just plain exhausting.

    I agree with another reviewer who likened this story to "Pretty Woman" and "Maid in Manhattan" only in that the initial premise of each is the same. The difference is that when the credits rolled those movies left a happy "aahhh" feelin in your heart. Not placing bets on how long before these two people will crash & burn.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm going to revist the magical cast of Dinah McCall's "Mimosa Grove." Therese Plummer's Lousiana bayou accent breathes life into this well written story.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator, Kim Bubbs uses her natural voice as the story's narrator which is quite good. Although 3/4 of what came out of Dominic's mouth has hair all over it, this is not the fault of the reader. If you can look past all the knuckle dragging, Miss Bubbs created a believable voice for Dominic. As for the voice of leading lady Abigail ... Picture this - On board his private jet, rich as midas neanderthal man tosses his woman on the bed, rips their clothes off and suddenly the woman who's been driving him to distraction all week is none other than sweet, innocent lil Minnie Mouse holding a condom!


    What character would you cut from Maid for the Billionaire?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    If I ever decide to quit my day job I'm going to become a weather broadcaster or a director of audiobooks because I'm faily certain you can't get fired for being wrong or doing a poor job.
