Audio Review: The Billionaire's Email-Order Date (Email-Order Romance, #1) by Vivi Holt (Author), Amanda Stribling (Narrator)  
Holt is my favorite author. She can open a heart, bleed it dry and then give it new life with only minutes to spare. The Billionaire's Email Order Date is a tale of heartbreak, risk and love in all it's glory. Chris and Kate are full of raw emotion, unfiltered hope and lessons that need to be learned. Holt and Stribling are like a balm for the soul. There will be tears

I have been consistently well pleased with Vivi Holt’s talent for telling great clean romance stories. There is a lot to like about this offering. High on my list is the backstory for Kate Grant, our heroine, who was given up for adoption at birth. This was personally relevant to me because our daughter and her two brothers were adopted. The story of Kate’s reunification with her birth mother and her current family was especially poignant. Few understand the emotions involved in the relationship ...more

Tis the most magical time of the year. Christmas is my favourite holiday and I could not wait to dive in to this story. Both the author Vivi Holt and the narrator Amanda Stribling are new to me.

The Billionaire’s Email-Order- Date is by Vivi Holt. This is a Christian Romance and has no erotic scenes nor language. This makes the reading of it even easier.

The story begins with a unique premise and Kate is instantly likeable, perhaps to overshadow Chris’s negativity.

Found via Kindle Unlimited.

I love reading cute, cheesy books like this around Christmas time; however, this one missed the mark. I found myself bored after the first few chapters. There was zero character depth, and the whole thing was forgettable.

For me, this book did sparkle a bit. I loved the innocence and sweetness of this book. It made me want Christmas to be here already and for me to be held up in a cabin in Montana. It sparkled for me much like a sweet Hallmark movie sparkles for me. Sometimes they are unrealistically perfect, but I think that is why we Christmas lovers enjoy watching them. Sometimes you need to read a book that is going to make you feel a simple happiness that can only come from a perfectly set story. This book h ...more

If you need an uplifting story to lighten your heart, this is the perfect book to do just that.

Chris Everett is a self-made billionaire and seemingly has it all. Kate Grant is a struggling artist who has recently lost her adoptive parents in an accident. When they meet, a misunderstanding brings them together for the Christmas holidays at his parents' ranch in Montana.

An engaging, focused, very trope-y Christmas romance. I could have done with less snideness and distaste about escorts from both the protagonists (lol kids, the two of you are engaging in a financial transaction for basically the same thing! the romance genre really needs to get its head on straight when it comes to sex work and sex work adjacent professions when it's so insistent on embedding them into its premises).

I really loved this book. It was a wonderful story of two people from great families but both dealing with unresolved pain. A successful billionaire who hasn't dealt with the loss of his wife and a struggling artist who's adopted parents died years ago leaving her without any family. He hired a date to go home for the holidays to avoid questions and blind dates and she get mistaken as his date but goes along with it for the money and a chance to find her birth mom.

Both the author Vivi Holt and the narrator Amanda Stribling are new to me.

I found the story heart warming and the narrator did a great job bringing the story to life.

Chris Everett has not recovered from the accidental death of his wife. It’s been three years and he has closed himself off from life and his family.

When a case of mistaken identity leads Chris to offer Kate Grant a chance to make a great deal of money she jumps at the chance. All she has to do is accompany Chris as his

The Billionaire’s Email-Order Date: A Christmas Romance
By: Vivi Holt
I really love this Christmas romance with Chris and Kate. I was grabbed at the start and did not want to put it down. I fell in love with these two and was rooting for them. I caught myself laughing out several times. A billionaire needs a date to carry home for Christmas, and a struggling artist who sings Christmas grams happen to be in the right place. A wonderful story about overcoming grief and loss. This is a sweet romance

This is an amazing book that you need to read when you love a good love/family story. These characters need each other to be happy but it will take them so

Cute, but lacked depth

The story was very cute, but very predictable after the first couple of chapters. There was not a lot of depth to the characters, their personalities, or the plot line. I kept hoping it would get better, but it didn't. The chapters were over detailed with useless or nonrelevant details that just led to frustration through reading the book to the ending. Cute idea, the excessive details killed this book for me.

Vivi Holt has written another wonderful second chance romance with The Billionaire's Email-Order Date. I love this genre of romance and was not disappointed at all. The storyline flowed well and the characters were endearing. I really liked both of them. Add in a suburb narration and its a winner. Amanda Stribling performed distinguished voices and had the right emotions expressed. Perfect holiday listen!

This is a case of mistaken identity. The story is sweet and filled with Christmas magic, but the Chris is suspicious of Kate after he discovers he's taken an artist and singing telegram girl home, instead of an escort. The problem is Chris is falling in love with Kate. Kate is warm and engaging, but Chris at moments I just wanted to kick. The reader in the audiobook kind of helps this feeling along. The reader is excellent and engaging.

Mistake, or fate?

The mistaken identity was a great premise. The truth coming out so early made the story more engaging to find how things would get resolved. The guilt seemed a bit dramatic, but I've never experienced anything like that so maybe I'm just not as sympathetic as I could be.
I felt the steaminess level was a bit much. I don't want to truly blush when I'm reading a romance, just "aww" a little. I would rate this a warm PG-13.

I liked this story. It was cute. It reminded me a little of the movie, “While You Were Sleeping”, the deceiving everyone in the family part - and how she has no family and falls in love with his whole family... Anyways, I know it’s a stretch but it’s what I was thinking of when I read it... Very cute story and a clean romance.

I've always enjoyed Vivi's books, both contemporary such as this and the historical westerns and this is no exception. Kate becomes an email date by accident and it was interesting how this developed, the "billionaire" part of the storyline is not about "flashing the cash", rather explaining how this all started. I'm looking forward to more stories by this author

In my opinion, this is Vivi Holt's best book yet. She captures so many different emotions and feelings. There is death, grief, rage, unhappiness, sadness, loneliness, heartache, laughter, understanding, joy and love! She has woven a story that will keep you spellbound as you also experience all kinds of emotions! Well done Ms. Holt!

This book was so good! I enjoyed all the characters very much but found my self drawn to Kate. This story made me laugh and cry, I was so drawn into the plot. Chris had a story but so did Kate. Chris has to forgive himself while Kate has to forgive another person. The love of family and romance makes this special Christmas book. A absolutely must read for the holidays!

A wonderfully different, enjoyable story!
This story can catch you in a whirlwind, as you follow the two main characters, and imagine what could happen. Vivi Holt writes in a fun way, and wows you throughout the book. You will not want to put it down, until the end. I highly recommend reading this one!

This is the second book in The Billionaire's Email-Order Date. I love this Series! Chris and Kate's story is sweet, funny and cute. All the characters are interesting. This is a perfect Christmas Story. The narration is great and easy to listen. Amanda Stribling has a great voice, easy to listen. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily written this review.
Jun 26, 2019 rated it it was amazing
Even though this audiobook is primarily set over Christmas, it's a light heart-warming listen for any time of the year. I thought the narrator did a good job bringing the story to life. I would like to give it 4.5 stars. I would recommend this audiobook to listeners who like sweet romances.

I was asked by the author for an honest review. #AudiobookObsession
