WARNING: GIFs and some spoilers ahead!

On 1/27, I posted this status update as a warning that I would flip shit if the book continued to chronicle the process of shopping and dressing for every little event. If a story decides to stuff its pages with fantasy shopping scenes instead of real plot, then I reserve the right to call it fucking stupid. So, I should just do as I promised and start copy-pasting like a fiend, but guess what?

I'm reviewing it anyway. That's just how I roll.

Not great.

The story had potential but it dragged on and on.

Got sick of reading how pretty, how hot and how beautiful Jennifer was and how she didnt know it or believe them.

Alex was a totally closed book and you litrally found out nothing of interest about him.

Then there was the best friend who was a self published writer.....way to suck up to Amazon Ms sick or seeing that her friend was going to publish on amazon, she was in Amazons top 100, amazon are flipping great....yada yada

For a book that actually has no sex in it whatsoever this book oozes sexuality, tension, nutty characters, colourful characters, great dialogue and a hotting up romance.

I'm so glad I got this book, I was inhaled into the story at the get-go and wow did those 300 pages fly by! Some of the dialogue was a little back to front to me but that only happened sporadically, sometimes for instance the word 'was' in my eyes, placed wrongly in a sentence. I loved the chatty prose between Immaculata and Jenn

Jennifer and her best friend Lisa have recently moved away from Maine (and Jennifer's abusive parents) to start their life in New York. However, Jennifer seems to be unable to find a job, even with her MBA. In a pinch and quickly running out of money, Jennifer applies for a secretarial position at Wenn Enterprises. There, she meets the outspoken and headstrong Ms. Blackwell and Alex. (view spoiler) Alex seems to be all about work and i ...more

Problematic characterization: Mary Sue protagonist who protests consistently throughout the story every time someone compliments her beauty, intelligence, and splendid backside. She also suffers from horrible judgement: she buys a $3,000 suit for her job interview when she's broke as a joke, takes a job as a (view spoiler) ...more
First off, I will say, a huge pet peeve of mine is when books are broken up into volumes. To me, it's just a way to make more money. This book was super short and I'm glad I grabbed it up for free. While I'm interested in where the story goes, I do not want to pay 2.99 for two more 'volumes' when the book could be a full length novel or broken up into 2 full length novels.

Anyhoo, rant over about that. Now about the actual story. I had high hopes for this free book after reading the reviews but h
I don't think I actually got into this book until about half way. Some bits were good and others just dragged on a bit but overall I quite liked it. I will be reading the next book because I think theres still more to find out about Jennifer, Alex is still a bit of a mystery to me. Will I remember this book by the time the next one is out though? Probably not.
JENNIFER! FINALLY! A girl with backbone!

Smart and it shows. Shocking. Not your typical heroine going around that's described as smart, a+ blah blah blah but judging from their decisions you can't help but feel the urge to bitch slap the hell out of them.

Anyway, honestly speaking, seeing the title of this book, I was all braced for the romping and all the hoopla. Not to mention the guy being a control freak and the stupid girl, helpless. Your typical YA. Yes I was judged. Bite me.

Easy read - smart and witty.

"You have a credit card. You haven’t used it since we got here. You saved it for an emergency. Well, this is an emergency. Do you hear me? This is a full-on, five-alarm-fire emergency. You need to have your hair cut and colored. You need to buy a new suit and shoes—and nothing cheap."

I got this as a kindle freebie, so I figured I'd give it a try and if it sucked then oh well. I was pleasantly surprised by how good it really was.

Jennifer is a girl after my own heart. She's smart and knows it. She's gorgeous and doesn't know it. And she's just spunky enough to want to make her your best friend. She had a tough upbringing and it seriously affects her relationships with men. She needs a job like yesterday, and in comes Alexander Wenn with an offer she can't refuse.

What the hell did I just read? I seriously don't understand how this book could get so many positive reviews, it's worse than a dime novel. And why oh why do I keep reading free books? I've been so disappointed by those stories already and this one sadly wasn't the famous exception.


The "story" revolves around Jennifer, a 25 year old woman with abusive (cliché #1) parents from Maine. She is so soooo beautiful and intelligent that basically everyone is intimidated and/or envious of her (cl
Very similar to Fifty Shades. Innocent heroine from meager beginnings with a damaged past meets billionaire boss who has tragedies of his own to overcome. They begin to work together but as second volume unfolds, they start dealing with danger as a threat unfolds.

Really well written, very easy to read, somewhat unoriginal kept thinking been there done that, but reliving Fifty Shades again isn't exactly a hardship ;-) Great sexual chemistry, intelligent root for characters, good supporting cast
This was a great book which caught me completely off guard. Because of the title I was expecting something a lot steamier than what it ended up being, this was a good thing however. The writing drew you into the plight of the characters and made you want to follow along and find out how their lives would turn out. It held my attention from the beginning to the end and had me wishing there were just a few more hours available so I could finish instead of having to wait for the next day. I was ver ...more
Although we have a female protagonist that is standing up for herself and not allowing anyone (male or female) to dictate her feelings or future, the story relies too much on superficial things like clothing brands, shopping and how the protag looks instead of building on what could have been an amazing story with character and strength. I got tired of the endless talk of how perfect she looks, the detailed shopping trips with no financial ceiling and the fact that because she's from Maine every ...more
This was a surprise to me. The title is a little misleading, this was strictly a pg story. At times there was a teaser or an innuendo but then it would be over and done with. Their POV's border on explicit but never really get there. But it was well written and the characters are strongly represented. Jennifer was very strong minded and she might have had a chip on her shoulder but she wasn't taking any crap from anyone, I liked that about her. The way that Alex and Jennifer met was good. He did ...more
Jennifer Kent and her BFF Lisa Ward have left their home state of Maine to find jobs in New York City. With an MBA in Business it should only be a matter of time before Jennifer lands a high paying job that will catapult her career while Lisa works at becoming the break-out newly discovered best selling author she is destined to become. Four months later with nothing to show except sore feet and an empty bank account Jennifer gives it one last try before admitting defeat by applying for a secret ...more

Definitely not a good quality book. So many things were repeated so many times I thought my Kindle was broken and showing me the same page over and over again. The second "volume" was better, but still not worth my time. I would definitely not recommend this "series" to others. You'll be more frustrated than you will enjoy the quick and easy read.
P.S. Was anyone else annoyed by the fact that the author put in every book that they weren't novellas, but novels? Obviously you know you're wrong so y
Elaine Hepple
Interesting. What I can't get my head around is the fact that she's self confessed business junky who is able to offer really good advice during their first business dinner about Stavros yet she didn't have a clue who Alex was when she bumped into him in the lift. I get that the author needed to come up with hook but this isn't realistic. Her character would have sucked the print off all the information she could get her hands on before going for an interview. She would have known exactly who he ...more
I think this was intersting. I'm going to move forward to the next novel number 2. I got my money's worth in book one. This story definitely has potential and I would recommend you move to book2. I"m curious for sure to see what happens next. Actually, I can't wait. I hope I wont be surprised. The good news is that this series is a full freaking novel. Not some rip me off for two chapters bull crap making me wait for the next two chapters. There is a full novel here. Kudos to the author for that ...more

This is very quick read, written to closely follow the Fifty Shades premise
Alexander Wenn is the billionaire leading man, with the intense gaze and offer that hard-working,MBA graduate, Jennifer Kent knows better than to resist

She is to be the better half of the Wenn power couple. The public face of a relationship designed to keep fortune seekers and the relentlessly prying public at bay.
Her reward.
Dresses, dancing, dining, and impressively deepened pockets. To the tune of a very astounding $30
Not worth your time.

Not worth your time.

I want to read about a woman that is smart, insecure, silly and confident who can hold her own; not a woman who is classless, clueless and a moron (too many in real life and reading romantic novels is to get away from real life). A woman who has a M.B.A., who cannot find a job should perhaps start to look within herself to see what else might be going on. A woman who is is so smart will at least at the very minimum understand that her upbringing has and w

Unfortunate title for the first of the set. It's misleading in that I was afraid it was going to be a lot like 50 Shades but it really wasn't, which was a relief. I fear that's about all the relief I found in it though.

I really enjoyed the characters overall. Jennifer was a great leading lady in that she was tough as nails and not afraid to walk away from a man after he treated her poorly. Then she lost that by caving into him after only a week or so. I don't care how attractive a man is, where

I enjoyed this so much! I already have the second of this series waiting for me after I finish this review.

Jennifer is in NYC trying to make something of herself and her MBA so she doesn't have to go back to Maine with her tail between her legs and her abusive parents waiting to berate her. She applies to a position with Wenn Enterprises, and has a terrible interview through no fault of her own. Unbeknownst to her, she bumps into the Wenn in question, Alex, and tells him about her terrible day.
After reading the summary for "Annihilate Me" I thought here we go again, another poor girl meets good looking/ obscenely rich Prince Charming. However, since the book was free and it had an overall 4 point review, I thought I would give it a shot. While the book did have aspects of the poor girl/ rich guy aspect, it was actually pretty good. My only concern is that the relationship between the main characters evolved a little too quickly for me.

I loved this book, it was so good, romantic, funny, and hot. I love Alex he is so sexy, hot, protective, and loving. Jennifer was smart, loving, and so funny, I love how she tells others what she thinks, how she doesn't back down from some of the snotty people that try to make her feel like less, and I love how smart she is and how she can contribute to the conversations around her at these high society events. Her roommate/best friend Lisa was great, so funny, protective, and she would push Jen ...more
Divoon. This book is divoon.

A quick-witted intelligent heroine and a sexy billionaire hero... both with tragedy in their pasts.

Jennifer's got a fresh MBA and needs a job in NYC and is at the end of her rope, but she's got a streak of assertiveness in her that's amusing. He's a billionaire that's hit on by women all the time and needs help in the way of a fake gf. Why would she consider this? She's broke and it's platonic.

But after one event together all bets are off and he starts to fall for her
Annihilate Me volumes 1-5 is considered the new “adult” reading. However, it has some surprising characteristics that are not expected. Each of the volumes are full-length books, not those puny novellas. Due to the lengths of the books, the characters actually have time to develop and grow, allowing the reader to enjoy the changes. In the first book in the series, Jennifer and Alex do not even have sex. Do not think the book is without the sexual tension and overtones, because they are there in ...more
I'm not even sure where to start with this "book". After getting it for free on Amazon, I read the reviews here and on their site. Needless to say, the negative reviews seemed to rip this "book" a new one. My curiosity was piqued so I moved it to the front of the TBR pile.

Theannoying parade of characters constantly waxing poetic about Jennifer's ravishing beauty was the first thing that hit me but I'd been warned. The story was ok until I kept feeling like I'd read this story before. I was halfw
