Once Upon a Time meets The Office in Hannah Maehrer’s laugh-out-loud viral TikTok series turned novel, about the sunshine assistant to an Evil Villain…and their unexpected romance.
ASSISTANT WANTED: Notorious, high-ranking villain seeks loyal, levelheaded assistant for unspecified office duties, supporting staff for random mayhem, terror, and other Dark Things In General. Discretion a must. Excellent benefits.
With ailing family to support, Evie Sage's employment status isn't just important, it's vital. So when a mishap with Rennedawn’s most infamous Villain results in a job offer—naturally, she says yes. No job is perfect, of course, but even less so when you develop a teeny crush on your terrifying, temperamental, and undeniably hot boss. Don’t find evil so attractive, Evie.
But just when she’s getting used to severed heads suspended from the ceiling and the odd squish of an errant eyeball beneath her heel, Evie suspects this dungeon has a huge rat…and not just the literal kind. Because something rotten is growing in the kingdom of Rennedawn, and someone wants to take the Villain—and his entire nefarious empire—out.
Now Evie must not only resist drooling over her boss but also figure out exactly who is sabotaging his work…and ensure he makes them pay.
After all, a good job is hard to find.
Easy, fun read
Is this high literature? No. And that’s okay. This is a fun read and one that is simple to get through, follow, and if you just let go of yourself a little bit, simple to enjoy.
I loved this book! The characters were so quirky and endearing and the plot was very suspenseful and keeps you guessing. So different than anything I’ve read in a long time and I can’t wait for the sequel!

I’m TOTALLY in love with The Villain!!! Evie Sage, his assistant, is one of the BEST, MOST RELATABLE characters!!! Their protectiveness of each other made me swoon!!😍
This story is full of adventure, action, witty characters and obnoxious characters, magical creatures and magical people, The Villain🖤 and freaking swoon-worthy romance!! I totally laughed-out-loud several times throughout! I rarely do that! I may chuckle, but this book had me cracking up!!!
I love this book so much!! This is definitely on my favorite books (of all time) list, and I haven’t finished the series yet! I hope it’s not a terribly long wait for the next book, because I think I may die. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to all my book friends, in fact I will be!!! Great job, Hannah!!!!!
