They say rules are made to be broken, but it took a billionaire to tempt me...

I built a whole career on teaching women to follow the rules of dating.

That’s because they work, every time. My foolproof system relies on the three basics: playing just hard enough to get, letting the man make the first move, and never having sex on the first date.

Sure, it’s old-fashioned, but w

4 That Was Fun Stars

I really liked this one it was light, funny and a whole lot of fun.

Was it eye roll inducing at times? Sure

Did I care? Not at all

The humour was spontaneous and sarcastic, you know the type that is really silly but you just can't help but laugh?

Review at Of Pens and Pages.

Another laugh-out-loud romance from Poppy Dunne! Expect exotic animals, swan fights, adorable children, private jet rides, Harry Potter cosplay, a hilarious dating coach, a cocky billionaire, broken rules, and romantic and sexy nights with Dating the Billionaire.

Dating expert Dahlia Rossi has rules she swears by, and it’s never failed her clients so far. Her rules keep it safe, and there’s nothing about tech billionaire Jack Carraway you can call safe. In a bl

Verdict: Meh... it passed the time.


Honestly, I didn't care for either one of the MCs. Both were beyond annoying to me.
Dahlia with her 10,000 rules of dating which she couldn't seem to follow when she was in the presence of Jack. This constant internal struggle between following her rules and going with the flow drove her crazy... in turn, driving me crazy.


And Jack, with his absolute arrogance and overinflated ego... good grief. Look, I love me a cocky asshole. Throw in the mix that he's a drop-d

Poppy Dunne is a new-to-me author and it took me exactly THREE PAGES to become an #instafan! I read this book in almost one sitting because her writing just flows. It's smart, funny (I am talking 'throw your head back laugh out loud kind of funny'), full of witty dialogue, feels and great supporting cast. And, of course, Dahlia and Jack stole my heart! This is what I would describe as a 'perfect rom-com'. If you are in the mood for something charming, funny, well written and super entertaining, ...more

So how's that saying go.....'Those that can't do, teach.'

Well, that saying seems very appropriate for this book, but with a quirky and hilarious twist!

Dating the Billionaire is full of charm, wit, sarcasm, and it overflows with the feels! I not only doubled over with laughter, but also found my heart breaking over the raw and heartfelt emotions that poured from the pages.

You're introduced to two very unique characters in this book. And although they seem to be quite different from each other, th

Dating the Billionaire is Poppy Dunne’s third book, and tells the story of Dahlia and Jack. Like her other books this story is a funny RomCom with laughter, but also with some serious moments. I love Dahlia and her ‘rules’, and how Jack handles them (or more likely, makes Dahlia forget them).
“A good book? Same thing as a good man: never let it out of your sight, and don’t let your friend borrow it unless you want the pages to come back all crinkled and the dog to have chewed on it.”

Sexy and fun, Dating the Billionaire is quite the entertainment. The blurb sounded interesting, a premise of something good!

When a dating coach extraordinaire, Dahlia Rossi, met her match and broke every rule she has ever written and followed religiously, having fun was good but it definitely put everything under perspective… now she’s dating a billionaire, the kind of one, unpredictable, too charming for his own good. The man she didn't see c

The story is hot and funny, smart and sarcastic in equal measures. This author has become my favorite voice for a laugh out loud quirky fun romantic comedy.

"A perfect ass and grade-A tits are good. A lovely face, sleek hair, full lips? Incredible. But a good heart? That’s my favorite thing to see in a woman. I mean, not literally see. I’d either need X-ray vision or homicidal intent for that. There’s a reason I don’t tell people every thought in my head."
4.5 Stars!!

I always enjoy reading a Poppy Dunne novel, and this one is no exception. There are so many things to appreciate with this book, and Dahlia was one of them. She was the sort of character that as a teen wasn't appreciated for her quirks and felt more order was needed to achieve in life. So she created a whole lot of rules and became a professional dating expert. Although rules are meant to be broken, just ask Jack. He is the total opposite with the rules. He is a self made billionaire who lives l ...more

Quirky, fun & Sexy

This book was the exact blend of quirky, fun and sexy that I've come to expect from Poppy Dunne. I think she's found her niche in the fantastic way she shapes her characters through their internal monologue. I love getting to know characters through their thoughts sometimes more than their actions and getting to know Dahlia and Jack was a riot.

If you're looking for a fun, low angst read with plenty of steam and Harry Potter references then I think this is a book you'll want to

Nothing great in life happens without a little risk.

Dating the Billionaire has all the fun, flirty, steamy, sweet moments that I have come to expect from Poppy Dunne. Lighthearted and entertaining, it’s a quick, easy read you are sure to enjoy.

Dahlia is a professional dating expert. She does a good job at reading people and has made several perfect matches over the past ten years. Her “Commandments of Dating” include the rules she uses when sets a couple up and it's proven successful

Dating the Billionaire by Poppy Dunne is a fun and quick romance. The characters are entertaining and their quick romance is fun and steamy.

While he is good looking and incredibly wealthy tech. genius, he lacks that controlling and domineering quality readers have come to expect from this character archetype.

Dating the Billionaire was another enjoyable, endearing, funny read by Poppy Dunne!

First off, we have Dahlia, professional dating coach with rules, rules and more rules on the adventures of dating. However, when it comes down to it and she meets a sexy billionaire that sets her panties on fire all rules go OUT THE WINDOW! As much as she tries to get a handle on the situation and reign in her hot, animal attraction to Jack she realizes this is a no-win situation. No number of rules can keep her

Rules can give you a sense of direction, they can give you a way to feel that you are doing what you are supposed to be doing in a situation that is not clear. And, rules are the same for everyone. That's the whole point of having them.

Dahlia believes in rules. They keep her safe, and she has convinced herself that they are necessary. So necessary, in fact, that she has a career that is built on teaching others to follow these same rules, a

Poppy Dunne has become my 'go-to' for a great quirky and fun RomCom. Dating the Billionaire does not disappoint.

Dahlia Rossi is a dating a coach and relationship expert (read matchmaker). She believes in always following tried and true rules for her clients and herself.

Jack Carraway is a super hot and sexy tech-geek billionaire who is impulsive and he never lets rules get in the way of what he wants.

Dahlia is a Professional Dating Coach, she prides herself on the advice she gives her clients to finding true love.

Then there's Jack Carraway, Billionaire Playboy. He has his sights set on Dahlia and enjoys a spontaneous lifestyle and a challenge.

Dahlia begins breaking her own rules one right after another with the sexy Billionaire.

5 billionaire stars! This is the best Rom-Com I have ever read.

Sweet baby Jesus! Dating the Billionaire is one of the best Rom-Com books I had the pleasure to read. Poppy Dunne delivers a stunning story. The plot is hilarious. It really made me laugh so much. The characters are very well developed. If I could give this book more than five star, I would give a thousand stars.

Dating the Billionaire begins with Dahlia Rossi helping a new client, as well as an already established one. While attending a party with the latter, as “support”, she encounters none other than Jack Carraway: self-made billionaire, tech geek and, according to the tabloids, playboy extraordinaire. Is she intrigued? You betcha. Is she going to fall for his sweet and sexy words? Nope. At least, that’s what she thought.

I’ll admit, I’m a romantic comedy junkie. I love the movies, I FLOVE the books!!! So, after reading a few heavier, emotional romances, I knew I needed to jump into my favorites. Poppy Dunne provided exactly what I needed. And this was my first by Poppy, but she had me at the title. I knew it was going to be a winner.

Here’s what I love so much about rom coms – witty humor (of course!), sass, an undeniable connection between the main characters, steamy scenes (must have!), well rounded characters,

This book was a nice balance of humor, sexy and swoon... it was quickly paced and made reading light and fun. It is so much fun to read books where you watch the control freak characters slowly unravel and come alive and out of their controlled shell.

Sometimes Rules Need to be Broken

I started this book thinking it was just going to be a quick fun read. While, it was that, it was so much more. I loved the inner dialogues as well as the real dialogues between characters. I LOVED Dahlia so much because she reminded me a little of myself (not a matchmaker, but the girl who is a square peg trying to fit into the round hole). She was a free spirit. She made me laugh. Jack was SWOON WORTHY. Together they made me look like a smiling idiot to anyone
