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?

I loved how the main character, Abby, was able to create a change in Dominic that he did not know he had in him! I love how she captures his heart!

Abby was my favorite character. She was strong and yet still wanted to be taken care of.

Love it! :O)

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

No not really.. I like them both the same.... They both still make me use my imagination... With the print version is what I read that makes me imaging and with the audio edition it's what I hear that makes me imagine... They are both great...

What other book might you compare Maid for the Billionaire to and why?

The Billionaire wins the game by Melody Ann... They both have good women that fall for men that have jerk tendencies. Who think that they can get whatever they want because they have a lot of money... And who fall hard for these women and once they fall that's it.. they are caught hook line and sinker forever...

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

She brings a life to the characters that you don't get from reading... you only have your imagination then no voice for any of the characters... Although she can't really bring a voice to the males that fit since she's a female. But at least the females get a voice... lol... :O)

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

When Dominic sent a Nanny over to help Abby's sister out while they spent the day together.

Any additional comments?

This is a great book that I enjoyed.... The audible version is great because I can still do what I need or want to do and still enjoy a good book... :O)

Story is SO unhealthy. The narrator is excellent.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People who like other bad examples about relationships that are unbalanced, unhealthy, and toxic. Like "50 Shades of Gray".

Would you ever listen to anything by Ruth Cardello again?

Not if she wrote a romance. Her characters and their stories were actually REALLY interesting... until they were put in a room together and it was all raging hormones, mind games, ego, and manipulation.

Have you listened to any of Kim Bubbs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I had not, but she is an excellent narrator I will look up to see what other books she has read. She was LOVELY to listen to.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Maid for the Billionaire?

All the sex. All of it.This story would have been amazing had it actually had a plot. The characters had interesting stories that meant nothing.

Any additional comments?

This should not be any man or woman's fantasy. This is not healthy or sexy. This kind of behavior should send you screaming as you run in the opposite direction.

Average

Not that remarkable of a story, nice as a easy listen but the plot is not very deep.
The story is short and sweet but the pace is a bit difficult to catch.

Worth the credit?: not that im crying over the $10 but i wished i used it on something else
Would I re-listen?: Probably not
Would I continue with this series?: Might purchase it and give it a try, the plot have been paving to an obvious direction and i wouldn't mind giving it a try.

Read something else

Boring. Extremely predictable. No originality. Not worth the short time to read it. Would not recommend to anyone to read. Wish I could get my money back for the audio.

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.

over priced for 5 hours.

Would you try another book from Ruth Cardello and/or Kim Bubbs?

Undecided.

If you’ve listened to books by Ruth Cardello before, how does this one compare?

N/A

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Ok

Could you see Maid for the Billionaire being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No.

Any additional comments?

Too short. Would of preferred book 1&2 combined as one book or priced at half the recommended price.

maid for the billionaire

I lost the will to live on more than one occasion
Realise was to be predictable, but a little scope for imagination would have been unappreciated.

A great story.

What made the experience of listening to Maid for the Billionaire the most enjoyable?

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?

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