Peek Inside An Accidental Date with a Billionaire

Samantha Matthews 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.

Diane Alberts Always Delivers. This starts out with a woman who has remade herself, running away from the sins of her father and mother. Think Madoff Ponzi scheme level of fraud. She was left by her parents to be put into foster care and had to work all by

4 - "Only with you…" Stars!

The phrase ‘Bachelor Auction’ is like catnip to this reader, so I knew I wanted to read An Accidental Date with a Billionaire as soon as I finished the blurb.

"You’re a mystery I can’t quite solve… but I intend to do my best to figure you out…"

I enjoyed this fun, sexy, romance that starts with a case of mistaken identity but turns into a real relationship!

By Garden Of REden April 01, 2019


I have just come to accept that I love Diane! This book could be described as Insta-love and that was a-okay by me! The initial connection of Taylor (how hot is that name?) and Sam was felt and by 6%, I was getting butterflies in my stomach.
Taylor grew up poor, while Sam grew up ric ...more

Another winner!!! This is a delightful quick read that romance fans will love - it's charming, sweet, and sexy.

Accidentally perfect! I didn't put this one down, I was too engaged with the story. Why can't these kinds of accidents happen to me? Right!? I fell in love with the snapping, barking dog that was Taylor when we first get a glimpse of him. Yowza he is a commanding, demanding, ain't nobody got time fo ...more

By Isha April 14, 2019

They met by chance. Was it an accident or meant to be? Sam and Taylor have alot to learn when it comes to matters of the heart and money is at the center of it all. Alberts pours on the charm with a whole lot of heart and a great deal of common sense. An Accidental Date with a Billionaire begins wit ...more

By Ofelia March 18, 2019

I really liked the story line but I found it kind of annoying and tiresome when Sam kept denying her feelings for Taylor. I know that she was traumatized by the actions of her parents and was afraid of rejection and what Taylor might think of her but the fact that she kept deflecting her true feelin ...more

By Defying Tradition April 16, 2019

Samantha and Taylor were phenomenal together! This book had me laughing and yelling in my head and sometimes out loud. I wanted to shake both characters and hug them, LOL yes, it is that good.

I loved the premise of this story, and it was fun and exciting seeing how it would all play out. Some things that happened were what I expected, and some were surprising, but overall I really enjoy the story.

By v April 18, 2019

As probably one of the more 'original' storylines that I've read in this genre, (although of course there are elements from other tropes), I have to say that I loved this. From the 'never-ending dates', to both of their hearts for others (and for each other of course), to the arguably nuanced back s ...more

I'm glad I chanced upon this gem while I was perusing through Net Galley... It's been a while since I've read a Diane Alberts novel, and I'm glad I was reminded of how awesome she is.

Taylor Jennings gave me all the feels. He was a ruthless businessman but underneath it all is a softy just waiting fo ...more

By Cheryl March 17, 2019

I really enjoyed this book overall, but I wasn’t entirely in love with the female main character. I was glad that Taylor wasn’t the controlling jerk he seemed to be at first glance/meeting. He was a really good guy and even though he wasn’t interested in relationships or anything beyond first dates, ...more
