Slick & Kitty’s Two-fer Review – 69 Million Things I Hate About You (Winning the Billionaire #1) by Kira Archer

There were at least 69 Million Things that I loved about this book. Kira Archer wrote a feel good, fun story. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures

Blurb:
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.


There were at least 69 Million Things that I loved about this book. No, I won’t name them all here but I will say that this is a story that seriously put a smile on my face, had me laughing out loud and had me looking forward to who was going to do what next.

Kiersten was hysterical throughout this whole story. I honestly didn’t know what to expect from her. At first, she was an uptight 1st assistant with no life and then turned into a conniving woman who would do just about anything to get herself fired. You couldn’t blame her … Mr. Harrington was one demanding boss. Once she got going with her little games, there was no stopping her. She just couldn’t understand why he wouldn’t fire her already.

As for Cole Harrington, you knew he was an asshole right from the start when he fired his first 1st Assistant for not heeding his demands. But, as the story goes on, you know that he really does have a heart and one hell of a sense of humor as he started playing the games right with her making her just as frustrated as he was.

As the games go on and the each really get to know one another, you know that one of their little pranks is going to go wrong and someone is going to get hurt. Especially after they finally face the feelings that they have for each other. When everything implodes, it’s Kiersten that has to fix things and Cole that has to face the fact that he was wrong, that she wouldn’t intentionally sabotage the one project that was closest to his heart.

So, there wasn’t anything that I didn’t like about this story. Kira Archer wrote a feel good, fun story. When she finally brought them together, it was explosive. It was fantastic watching Cole succumb to his feelings, to see him laughing and happy instead of broody and difficult. To top it all off, they were both surrounded by wonderful friends. Brooks was an instigator with a fantastic sense of humor and Izzy and Cass were so supportive and just as much troublemakers as Brooks was. But, they were also loyal to their respective friends. So, from drinking his coffee, to re-stapling client files, to dancing in the park, to Amish Country, I was kept on my toes with one hell of a smile on my face. But, I kept thinking about our lottery pool at work and knew, deep down, I would act just like Kiersten and stay at my job just to aggravate the powers that be.

Now, if you want to read something fun and interesting written by an author who knows how to bring the antics of two people to life in an entertaining and fascinating way, pick up 69 Million Things I Hate About You and enjoy yourself. I will promise you that you will not be disappointed.

I loved pretty much everything about this book; both characters were fun, their exploits hilarious, the tension exciting, and the aftermath charming. All in all 69 Million Things I Hate About You is a perfect romantic comedy. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures 


Let’s be honest here, there probably aren’t too many people out there that haven’t dreamed of striking it rich and being able to quit their job and get away from a miserable boss, so Kira Archer has struck gold with 69 Million Things I Hate About You. Three friends, roommates, and co-workers dreams come true when one of the three tickets they bought for a Powerball Lotto nets them the jackpot leaving them to plan their escaped from the lives they know, no one is more ready that the woman who deals with the president of Harrington Enterprises on a daily basis sometimes sixteen hours a day as his administrative assistant. I loved pretty much everything about this book; both characters were fun, their exploits hilarious, the tension exciting, and the aftermath charming. All in all 69 Million Things I Hate About You is a perfect romantic comedy.

One moment Kiersten Abbott is the second assistant to Cole Harrington and the next, she’s is only assistant and her life is forever changed. She is more than qualified and the huge bump in salary is a bonus, but her life belongs to Mr. Harrington because she is at his beck and call and he calls a lot. The man she once thought was debonair and sexy isn’t quite a pretty now that she works for him all the time, so when she and her roommates win a huge jackpot lotto, Kiersten decides that until they claim it she is going to exact her revenge in very interesting ways and see how long it takes for him to fire her, she just doesn’t realize he knows what she’s doing and he plans to get her to quit first.

There is so much I want to say about this book, but I’m not going to because I want you to read every devious, delicious, laugh out loud funny ways these two go after each other. These are two high intelligent people and with each prank their respect for one another grows, a few lines get crossed and then pulled back, and the tension growing between them is far from work related making things very interesting. My one complaint and it is a small one was after the exciting time Kiersten spent with Cole’s mother; I was shocked she wasn’t present at the end because I know she loves a good party.

If you want a book that is low on angst and high on laughter then 69 Million Things I Hate About You is the perfect read, seriously as I write this review I am still giggling about the many hilarious antics throughout this story.
