“‘Your happiness is my happiness,’ he said, like it was the most normal thing in the world.”
As a reader, it becomes second nature to find authors you love and instantly buy their books because you are guaranteed a read that satiates you. For me, Max Monroe is a go-to read for romantic comedy. Their ability to write tongue-in-cheek, absurdist situations that make you chuckle from your gut with heroes and heroines who are fallible but swoony is like no one else. If you’ve read other reviews, they have their nay-sayers, but honestly, those naysayers just don’t get it. Max Monroe are in the game to sell books that, quite frankly, make you smile. And Swoony Billionaire, their newest offering, provides the piece de resistance of their book library: Kline Brooks.
Swoony Billionaire is a compilation of Tapping the Billionaire, the first book of their Billionaire Bad Boys series, Tapping Her, a follow-up novella, and a new short story, Be My Billionaire Valentine. Let me tell you. This is guaranteed fun. My favorite Max Monroe hero is Kline Brooks. He is a combination of handsome, rich, kind, empathic, reasonable, and adorably in love with his heroine, Georgia. He isn’t without his foibles as we see in Tapping the Billionaire. While much of that story is quite charming, Kline blows it as tends to happen in the funniest of romantic comedies, but he makes a huge gesture to win Georgia back. As a heroine, Georgia is an independent, intelligent, capable heroine who meets her clear match in Kline. One of the best moments of this book comes in their “Epilogue” through the point of view of her best friend, Cassie, who shows readers the depth of love between Kline and Georgia. Their resiliency is impressive, but it’s the depth of love between Kline and Georgia that will steal your heart. Cassie shows us that in the epilogue.
Tapping Her is more of their life, post-wedding. It’s also so ridiculous but binge-worthy. It introduces us to more of Max Monroe’s most absurd yet popular couple, Thatch and Cassie. But it also provides the beginning of Walter and Stan’s love affair. Like Tapping the Billionaire, it is also steamy, steamy, and steamy since we find Kline and Georgia on their honeymoon. Again, you leave Tapping Her satiated by the fun, frolicking story that Max Monroe has crafted.
The final portion of this compilation is Be My Billionaire Valentine, a new novella in the Kline/Georgia timeline. Set from the time of their honeymoon to weeks after, this is a hilarious romp through fighting a curse about Valentine’s Day. Once again, just as you find with Tapping the Billionaire and Tapping Her, there are antics galore, figured in heavily by Thatch. There is more delicious sweetness between Kline and Georgia, more steam, and more hilarity. Max Monroe have done what they do best: created a space where it’s easy to laugh and swoon over two of their beloved characters.
If you have yet to meet Kline and Georgia, Swoony Billionaire is a perfect book. It will make you laugh out loud and help you wile away your cares for a day or two. If you love a dirty-talking, all around good guy and his quirky yet intelligent heroine, then this is the read for you.
In love and romance,
