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.

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?

    "Maid for Listening"

    This already loved book was just as well loved on audio. It was well paced and the narrator did a great job! I can't wait for Ruth Cardello's other books in the Legacy Collection to come out onto audio too!!

    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.

    Ruth Cardello has hit a home run with the Legacy Collection. Narrator Kim Bubbs is fantastic perfect choice to share this story.

    I would compare maid for the Billionaire to the last vampire lover. Because I really like maid for the Billionaire better then the last vampire lover.

    Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.

    Story
    "Light, shallow romance"

    This is a "Pretty Woman" and "Maid in Manhattan" story that is everything the title promises. There are several bedroom scenes that romance readers have come to expect. Completely predictable plot with a tidy and corny ending. A good Sunday afternoon listen while enjoying the garden and playing with the dogs.

    The writing is competent enough and the reader handles the characters well.

    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!!!
