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.
OK, so that’s the official blurb. What did I think about it?
I loved it. I loved, loved, loved this book. It was laugh-out-loud funny; it was exactly the right mix of fantasy (come on, who actually wins the lotto?) and wish fulfillment and revenge and romance. Kiersten (Kestin, Krispin, etc…) puts up with SO much shit from Cole, at first because he’s got his head so far up his ass he can’t find it with both hands and a floodlight, and then because he just wants to break her composure. When she turns her hand to getting him back – it’s priceless. This is the book I want to buy for all my girlfriends. This is the book I wish I’d had to read when I was 25 and working in a soulless long-term temp job as a sales assistant for a fat, arrogant insurance company president. I cannot wait to read the rest of this series, but I don’t know how they can ever live up to this lovely little book vacation.
Let’s celebrate this book’s Release Day with a giveaway of a Kate Spade purse. Not quite a winning lotto ticket, but winning is winning… right?
