BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - An Accidental Date with a Billionaire by Diane Alberts

About the Book:

Samantha Taylor turned her back on her wealthy family to focus on social work. Those who know her think she’s the heart of kindness. Those who know her really well know she’s in a never-ending battle to make up for the harm her family’s companies inflict on the world. Which is how she finds herself at a charity bachelor auction of all places.

But oops, she was supposed to bid on her bff’s brother as a favor and accidentally bid on the wrong guy. Sue her for not being able to tell one stick-in-the-mud CEO from another.
Backstage, she goes to tell him not to worry about having to go through with a date or anything, but the oafish billionaire cuts her off dismissively. Looks her up and down, hands her a card with his assistant’s contact details, and reminds her that sex is definitely off the table.

Oh, she’ll call the assistant all right and have her make sure he wears jeans and comfortable shoes and to pick her up at seven a.m. The only “hammering” this guy is going to be doing is at Habitat for Humanity.

Too bad he turns out to be nothing like she expected.

This was my first time reading Diane Alberts and I really enjoyed this story. I'm not going to rehash the blurb, but I will say that Sam seems to be on a mission to save the world by living her life as a way to atone for the sins of her parents. On the one hand, I understand her reasoning behind her actions, but on the other I felt like she was being a martyr; I get that she felt bad for all of the material possessions she used to have that came from the money before her parents' crimes and fall from grace and her choice to not let money and material things rule her life anymore, but she seemed to judge Taylor for having the commas in his bank account, and does what she can to keep him at arms length.

I liked that Taylor wasn't born into money and is instead successful with his company and has gained a healthy bank account to show for his hard work and determination. He's intrigued with Sam at the start of the book because she doesn't fall for his charms or his money. The more time he spends with Sam, the more he falls for her, because she'll call him out when needed, and she makes him want to be a better man.
