Sometimes love is a lot closer than you think.

Where does Rise of the Billionaire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is one of my top favorites. Ruth Cardello has a way with writing her billionaires that draws you in and make you a part of the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jeisa Borreto is my favorite, because she defied her father in order to step out on her own in the first place. Sure she got into some trouble, but it was brave of her to follow her heart and go to America to find her place in the world.

Which character – as performed by Kim Bubbs – was your favorite?

Once again, Jeisa Borreto, was my favorite. Though I miss the sound of real male voices, and sometimes she makes the women sound a little childish, Kim Bubbs has a way with accents that is truly enchanting. I don't know how she keeps all of them straight when she's reading through a book. She really is precise.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

My favorite moment was when Jeremy appeared at Jeisa's office door, and they made up. That entire scene is wickedly erotic, romantic and sweet.

Any additional comments?

This was one of my favorite stories, because the author has a way of making even the background characters important enough to write love for them. She is a genuine talent and has a spicy romantic soul. Can't wait to see what she does next.

Audible made Jeremy's Story even better

What made the experience of listening to Rise of the Billionaire the most enjoyable?

I love the sound of the story teller. I can hear the words clearly and understand them well.

What did you like best about this story?

I like how the story teller capture the emotion when she's reading the dialogue. It made the story felt more real for me.

Have you listened to any of Kim Bubbs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

yes. I have a couple of other books from the same series by the same audible narrator. I really love the sound of her voice. Though I must say, the way she said the dialogues of the heroine in this novel sound a bit awkward for me. Maybe because she was trying to sound brazilian? I'm not really sure which but compared to her other audible narration, I find Jeisa's dialogues soundng a bit awkward.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The part where she was narrating the moment when Alethea messed up Jeremy's proposal. The emotions it held when I was listening to it was a bit more intense than when I was reading it.

Any additional comments?

So far, I can say that I truly enjoyed listening to Kim Bubbs.
