After personal assistant Kiersten Abbott wins sixty-nine million dollars in the lotto, she suddenly has more than enough money to quit her impossibly demanding job. But where’s the fun in that? She decides to stay and exact a little revenge on her insufferable ass of a boss.
Billionaire Cole Harrington quickly figures out something’s afoot with his usually agreeable personal assistant. When he finds out about the office pool betting on how long it’ll take him to fire her, he decides to spice things up and see how far he can push her until she quits.
The game is on, with everyone waiting to see who will crack first. But the bet sparks a new dynamic between them, and soon they realize they just might have crossed that fine line between hate and love.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
When your boss thinks you’re his personal slave instead of his personal assistant and you suddenly don’t need your job anymore because you won the lotto… well, I would totally want to get a little payback too.
In 69 Million Things I Hate About You Kiersten had to put up with the most demanding and seemingly inconsiderate boss ever. From being accessible 24/7 to having to choose his outfits for the week, there’s nothing she didn’t do for Mr. Harrington. And yet he couldn’t even remember her name right.
Everything changes when Kiersten and her friends win the lotto and are suddenly billionaires themselves. While she could just quit her job, she opts for trying to get on her boss’ nerves and getting fired would be way more fun. It’s not long before there’s an office pool betting on how long it’ll take her to get the can.
Unfortunately for her, Cole finds out about her plan and decides to counter with driving her to quit first. So let’s just say they spend half the book trying to one-up each other in outlandish ways and it was hilarious.
Kiersten’s work ethic was completely commendable, and the patience to deal with Cole’s asshole-ish ways was of sainthood proportion. She was also funny, sweet and an all-around nice person. I loved it when she started showing her true self to Cole, allowing him to see her in a new light.
It’s needless to say that Cole was the kind of boss no one really wants to have, but besides being a tad thoughtless (like asking someone to move their wedding so she could do a work thing) he was not all bad. For starters he worked as hard, if not more, than anybody in his company. When he let loose, he was actually fun to be around and when made to realize the error of his ways he’d act on remedying his mistakes. He had some issues, sure, especially regarding women, but as we get to know him it was all understandable.
A totally relationship driven story, 69 Million Things I Hate About You was fun, light and completely hilarious at times. Kiersten and Cole’s gradual change of relationship was very well done and totally believable. Their chemistry was as hot as their schemes crazy, but in the end it was a truly lovely romance. I really liked their friends too, so I’m hoping we’ll get their stories soon.
