Synopsis from Goodreads:
The marriage is fake. But for a sassy chef and an arrogant billionaire, the sparks are real…
Jackson “The Beast” Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick’s New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fund-raiser, Bianca can’t refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother’s medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum—money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract—and a stunning ring.
The heir to a family bourbon dynasty, Jackson knows the rumors swirling around him. The truth is even darker. Still, he needs a wife to secure his inheritance, and free-spirited, sassy Bianca would play the part beautifully. Soon, though, their simple business deal evolves into an emotional intimacy he’s built walls to avoid.
As the passion heats up between them, Bianca and Jackson struggle to define which feelings are real and which are for show. Is falling for your fake fiancé the best happy ending…or a recipe for disaster?
My thoughts 💭
I so loved this well written enemies to lovers book! Bianca is a sassy mouthed chef and prepared to do anything to save her mother…even marry a rich beast like Jackson who’s willing to marry the beautiful woman to save his inheritance. Jax was a little mean with a temper but he had his reasons and he really was a sweetheart under all that surliness. I loved Bianca and how the things she says instead of cursing has me laughing 😂 I loved when they realized they had feelings for each other and wanted to live happily ever after…as much as I loved the main characters everyone else was so funny! I need a friend like Eeny! She’ll put a voodoo hex on you if you get on her bad side and make fun of you until you feel better. 😂
