Marrying My Billionaire Boss by Nadia Lee

A bachelor auction, a wedding we don't remember, and a baby we don't recall making. FML.

I had a plan: move to LA, get a job, find the love of my life. Live happily ever after.

I was on track for this when being assistant to gorgeous billionaire philanthropist Nate Sterling suddenly gets a whole lot more complicated. It's a dream job…until he asks me to save him from a fur-bikini-wearing, totally psycho ex-girlfriend who is determined to win him at a charity bachelor auction.

All I have to do is outbid her at the auction. Easy, right? But nobody told me Nate and I had to go on an extravagant Las Vegas date afterward. Everything goes off as planned…until Nate and I wake up the next day, hung-over, wearing identical golden wedding bands and with no memory of what happened the night before.

Cue major hyperventilation.

But it's okay. Nothing that a quick marriage dissolution can't solve… Until the pregnancy test stick comes back with two pink lines.

Marrying My Billionaire Boss is a standalone romantic comedy with a sexy billionaire, his sassy assistant, a bachelor auction, a Vegas wedding and a surprise baby. Oh, and the most hilarious and sweet proposal scene ever. No cheating, no cliffhanger. Just lots of heat, heart and humor. Grab it today!

I've had this one downloaded through KindleUnlimited for a while and finally picked it up this past week. It looked like a fun one with some tropes that are totally up my alley--plus I kept running across an ad for it on Facebook and the teaser snippet caught my attention every time. And the book definitely delivered on what I wanted--a fun, light read that would hold my interest. 

There's a lot that was great about Marrying My Billionaire Boss, but here's a few of my favorite aspects:

- The tropes. The accidental we-got-drunk-and-married-say-what?? I'm always looking for books with this trope that don't dabble with things that are hard no's for me. This one was WONDERFUL. The male mc, Nate, already adored the female mc, Evie, beforehand so he didn't fall into the same denial pattern that's prevalent in books with this trope. (She did, but that doesn't bother me quite as much.) There's also a surprise pregnancy which I also enjoy but again it can be tough finding books that make it fully work for me. This one totally did.

- The main characters. I liked Evie, so that was nice. But I was a huge fan of Nate. I appreciated that he was a jerk to Evie exactly 0 times in this book. Even when they have their typical romance dark moment, he's nothing but kind to her. 

- Nate's family. Especially Barron. Good people who truly care. I loved when the family was together and when Barron showed up. Made for even more fun times.  

- How easy this book was to read. It was light. It was relatively predictable. I could enjoy the ride of the story without worrying about one character being an ass or another one doing something unforgivable or so on and so forth.

The only thing that makes this book a 4-star read instead of 5 is that it fell...just short...of being fantastic. It could have been so much more satisfying. Instead of forcing the conflict with Evie and *** (not saying because spoiler) toward the end, I wish the story had leaned more into its best aspects. I wish there'd been more of them as a couple. More of them as a couple, about to have a baby. More of them with Nate's family. If there'd been more of the best stuff, the book could have been so much more satisfying. 

Overall, Marrying My Billionaire Boss was a fun read full of tropes I loved. It was easy to fly through, and the couple together was everything I wanted. 

4 stars - A cute romance with some great tropes!
