When Megan Rossi is close to losing, Molly, the daughter of her best friend, she gets the limited offer from Jason Cambell. After hearing all the reasons his parents think Megan should not be raising his neice, Jason decides to help fight back. The offer, a temporary marriage with Meg receiving the house and custody of Molly at the end. With that Meg agrees to be Jason’s Temporary Wife.
I really did enjoy this book, but I am a sucker for Cinderella reads. Though Meg has another offer to help her fight for Molly, she does not want to have to borrow from her brother. Even if the offer from Jason is not ideal, it si the best of the two and she knows it.
Jason and Meg make great characters with their “secret” past and hard to fight attraction. But the character that stole the book for me would be Jason’s assistant, Harper. Whether you are loving her or hating her, I really just wanted to know more about her.

When the child was orphaned, Meg became the little girl’s legally named guardian—over the objections of Molly’s wealthy grandparents, the Campbells. Now the Campbells are petitioning for custody, and Meg is faced with a long and expensive legal battle. The last thing she expects is for her former high school boyfriend—and the Campbells’ estranged son—to offer a solution: marriage. Billionaire software developer Jason Campbell knows his parents don’t have Molly’s best interests at heart—it’s all about control for them. There is one way he can ensure that his sister’s last wishes are honored. He will offer Meg the protection of his name and lawyers until the custody arrangement has been finalized , then he’ll secure his niece’s future with a very generous divorce settlement. Jason’s considered all the scenarios, except one—that the sparks that once flew between he and Meg might reignite a burning passion. And that his confirmed bachelor heart might just melt away from the heat…
What do you do when your boss is insufferable and you have won the lottery? Kira Archer has answered that question for you in her book 69 Million Things I Hate About You. I have just fallen in love with this book and can not wait to get my greedy little hands on book two in the series to see where the other characters go.
69 Million Things I Hate About You by Kira Archer is a little gem of a book I found on sale. YES, it was on sale when I got this book. The book had me laughing so hard I was bright red and not from embarrassment. I will admit, when I read that the description of the book about the female winning millions in the lottery, I was kind of happy about a female who was on a more of an equal footing when it came to the billionaire men in most of these romance novels. (I am still looking for my billionaire to sweep me off my feet, but my life isn’t a Cinderella story).
What also kind of excited me is all the things she did since she really did not care about keeping her job. As someone who works and needs to pay the bills, I have a plan for when I can finally quit work, all the things I have wanted to say to someone will just come spilling out of my mouth and as I leave the building I am going to play the “Cups Song” from Pitch Perfect as I leave. So, the things she wants to say and do to her boss, I get it and congratulate her on getting to accomplish those things.
While reading 69 Million Things I Hate About You, Kiersten has become my hero. She takes no hostages in her fresh start after winning the lottery. She has no problem getting back at Cole for everything that he has pulled over the years of her being his assistant.
Though everything she did after winning the lottery was in good fun, she never meant any major harm to him or his company. Doing things like not fixing his coffee instead fixing herself a cup and drinking it in front of him, sending him to a black-tie event in costume by switching the dates of two events. Nothing that would have a lasting effect on the business itself just a little mind game to him. But I think the best is the things she does to his yearly poker getaway with his friends.
But the question remains at what point is a harmless prank to far?
About the Author
Kira Archer lives in Pennsylvania with her hubs and two kids. And 3 ridiculous cats. She’s one of those people who laughs at inappropriate moments (especially overly emotional occasions like weddings or funerals), and she has an insanely overactive imagination which is great when she’s writing but not so great when she’s shutting all the lights off at night and then has to go up the stairs. She has a PhD in Procrastination (or would if there was such a thing and there soooo should be because she’s seriously at expert level here). And if she’s not writing, she’s reading, or thinking about reading or writing. And running her kids around because they are busy and she’s the taxi driver. She also writes historical romances as Michelle McLean.
What would you do if you won the lottery? Would you go out with a bang or just leave quietly?
69 Million Things I Hate About You
October 9, 2017
“Sit back and enjoy the ride, because you're going to laugh your butt off!" - Brenda, AL. 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 Sometimes wonder what brings me to books like The Billionaire Bad Boys Club by Emma Holly. I may not know the full reason for my interest. Maybe it is just something that my conservative heart could never do, but to each their own. Yes, this book is a Menage. This was not my first Menage book, but for some reason it is one of my most memorable ones I have read.
When as teenagers, next door neighbors Trey and Zane realize they have more in common than they originally thought, they help each other out. Now working together, they own a business that is growing larger and more popular. Then there is Rebecca, who gave up everything in order to raise her younger twin brothers. She worked hard as a teen to not let anyone take the two boys away and split up their family. While doing this she found and developed a skill and love for cooking.
Though a short meeting between the three has some effect on them it is not until years later that anything happens. With her applying to be the chef at their newest business venture and her brothers making the “Men of Harvard” edition of their magazine, every aspect of her life seems to have The Bad Boys Club in it.
Character development is good. You don’t just have this struggling cook with the billionaires. You get a few glimpses of what led them down their life path. My favorite character in this book will have to be Rebecca, as the oldest sibling I get the need to take care of the younger siblings. I am just glad I was never put in this position. I also like the struggle on Zanes part to be more accepting of what he feels. It is probably the most important part of this book, though I do read it for the love story.
I was really satisfied with The Billionaire Bad Boys Club. It was a good read with a decent plot line and good characters.

I will admit The Billionaire’s Christmas by J.S. Scott has come up on my “Books you may like” list on Amazon many time over the last few years. But it really made its way onto my TBR list when my mom bought Amazon Unlimited.
*Side note the Amazon Unlimited is on a family amazon account that everyone uses not just me*
Emily has made the biggest mistake of her career, dating the wrong guy. Now said wrong guy has robbed The Youth Center she is the director of just in time for Christmas. To fix her mistake Emily goes to The Beast, Grady Sinclair, to save the Youth Center’s Christmas Celebration.
This was my first Sinclair story, aswell as my first book by J.S. Scott but I have completely fallen in love. The cuteness of the story is great and it ever has a little mystery mixed in with the search for the stolen money. No the stolen money is not a main focus but it does give a good twist. No the main story line is Grady wanting Emily to show him what is so good about Christmas.
