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.
What can I say? I loved this story!
I admit that after the first scene I was more than prepared to spread a little bit of hate around for Cole, I mean seriously! Though I did warm up to Cole pretty fast, he was infuriating, high handed, bossy and a completely unreasonable employer. No matter how well the job pays, and Kiersten agrees almost from the beginning, just as she agrees that he is the hottest thing walking around the whole damn city.
If only he wasn’t her boss. And a total pain in the ass.
Then her numbers come up, so speak, and the good pay is no longer the pull it once was. But Kiersten is a product of her environment and doing a good job means something to her, even if Cole doesn’t deserve it. So she keeps working hard, waiting for the day the money hits the bank and she can say goodbye forever. Only that doesn’t sound as appealing as it should so she comes up with something better.
The fun of, 69 Million Things I Hate About You, lies in the battle waged between Cole and Kiersten. This is a billion dollar business so nothing is so over the top that you’ll be taken out of the story, but you will be laughing, cringing and squeezing your eyes closed at some of their antics. I have two things to say to you right now: Amish farm and Massage table. Once you’ve read the story you will know exactly what I mean!
What I liked most about this story is that the actual romance doesn’t come into play for quite some time, yet the whole story still feels like a romance. Nothing happens between the main characters for quite some time but all the buildup, the fighting and the banter is there so you can experience every moment as Cole and Kiersten try to figure it out.
Oh…dinner with Cole’s mom was by far one of the best scenes in 69 Million Things I Hate About You.
It’s been a long time since I found a heroine I liked as much as Kiersten, she was tough and funny, determined and not at all afraid of Cole’s wrath. And the way the ending played out was…perfect as hell.
