It’s like Beauty and the Beast meets Princess Tiana.

Jackson and Bianca are so much fun to read.

He’s overbearing, high-handed, and demanding….beastly.
She’s hard-working, feisty, and doesn’t take any crap.
The two of them generate sparks that ignite all of New Orleans!

What I loved:

Mainly the characters. It’s a super cute take on the Beauty and Beast story. Jackson is misunderstood, but also doesn’t help the situation by barking orders and demands at everyone he comes into contact with. His backstory is heartbreaking. I loved seeing how his character developed and evolved over the course of the novel.

The secondary characters were a hoot. The humor spread throughout is well done. I laughed my ass off. While this isn’t at all what I expected when I grabbed this book, it was just what I needed at the time.


Audiobook review:

The audiobook alone, is worth the price of admission. The book is over the top. But funny. I laughed out loud several times. It was a great performance!



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?
