A Billion Times No by: Kenzie Reed

His nickname’s Sexy Satan. For the past three years I’ve called him boss. So why is he telling everyone that he’s my boyfriend?

Working for Chase Lancaster was supposed to catapult my marketing career. Instead, I’m trapped in personal assistant hell. His hobbies include barking orders, torpedoing my advertising campaigns, and reducing the office staff to tears.

On a good day, he acts like I’m invisible. On a bad day, I remind myself arsenic is not an acceptable sweetener for coffee. And prison orange would be murder on my complexion.

Imagine my surprise when Chase follows me home to Bitter End, North Carolina, where I’m about to endure my ex-fiancé’s wedding.

The moment he chases off my date and offers to pose as my boyfriend, I know he’s got a hidden agenda-especially when he plays the part a little too convincingly. Unfortunately, I have to play along to find out what he’s really up to.

To satisfy the town gossip squad, I’ll have to let him kiss me. Who knew Satan’s lips were so soft and inviting? And if we’re really playing the part, we’ll have to go to Lover’s Lane – testing my willpower beyond its limits.

The more time we spend together outside the office, though, the more I see a different side of him. He’s still bossy and demanding, but is it wrong that I find it kind of, well … hot?

This wedding is bound to be hell, so I might as well spend it in the arms of a sexy devil. “

This book was so much fun to read! I will say the speed of the story seemed way different in the first half than it did in the second half, which threw me off a little bit. Other than the random speed change I found myself giggling so much while reading this book.

Here’s the thing, I’m a sucker for the “falling for my boss” trope especially when they seemed to be enemies/adversaries first and then they’re just thrown into a situation that forces them to evaluate how they really feel about each other. On top of that, she’s from a busybody small town where everyone’s in her business and he’s from a cold corporate family that literally schedules monthly dinners to ensure they spend some time together. So many tropes in this book that I know and LOVE!

This was one of those books that I could literally see playing out like a movie in my head. I’ve always been such a sucker for romances that end up being played out in a small town…and this one checked so many happy boxes for me!

Growing up, Japanese and Indigenous, it was hard to find books that showcased stories and worlds that accurately portrayed Noelle’s experiences. Fantasy quickly became her main love, as you could really be anyone, anywhere. As the years went on, and technology grew, Noelle was finally able to see more stories and authors that looked and felt like her. Noelle is open to all genre’s though she can mostly be found reading own voice, fantasy, and romance.
