New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy launches her sexy Billionaire Bachelors Club series with a lavish bet, a night of carnal desires, and a forever that never seemed possible.

Billionaire Archer Bancroft always gets what he wants—and he's wanted Ivy Emerson, his best friend's sister, for far too long. Being forbidden and untouchable only makes her more tempting. When a million-dollar bet with his friends throws down a challenge—last bachelor standing takes all—Archer knows he can win. That is, until one enchanted evening with Ivy takes his heart for a ride.

Ivy knows Archer is nothing but bad news: infuriating, arrogant . . . and completely intoxicating. But despite her best efforts, she can't seem to keep away. When a stolen kiss leads to a night of heated passion, Ivy realizes she's in trouble and in head over heels.

But in the light of day, everything seems clearer, and Archer's not so sure a one-night stand is all he wants. Concocting a plan to keep Ivy by his side, Archer might just be willing to lose this bet . . . and win the jackpot instead.
I seem to read a theme whenever I get into a mood and this is the third book with this trope I've read this month. Again I went into this just knowing how much I love Monica's writing and I'm so glad I did. Forbidden love certainly has a nice thrill to it. 

In this one, we dive into meeting the three best friends who have carved out a life for themselves that has allowed them to become some of the most sought after bachelors.  At a friends' wedding, these three concoct a bet that says one of two who are jaded about relationships will fall in love and get married within a year.  Like the little fools, they are they take that bet. However, there is one exception and that is Ivy because she is one of the friends younger sister, she also happens to be the one woman Archer wants but doesn't believe he deserves.

In a moment of weakness in a hidden spot at the wedding Archer and Ivy give into their attraction and when they are almost caught by her brother Archer like most dummies said something that put Ivy out.  From there we get a fun, raunchy adventure. Archer decides a great way to get closer without drawing her brothers suspicion would be to hire Ivy on to aide him in completing another of his exclusives spas.  Ivy was surprised to realize that even though Archer claims to not believe in love he knows what a great relationship needs to survive and caters his business to that for an exclusive clientele. 

Of course, it wouldn't be a good romance without a little drama, men being stupid, secrets coming out and of course, a bet coming back to haunt the men involved.  I loved Ivy as a character and the fact that she liked Archer but when she thought he couldn't meet her relationship standards she took what she wanted but wasn't going to lower her standards. Her bond with her brother was great to see as well. 

A quick, steamy and erotic introduction to this new series.  I can't wait to read the other books and see how each bachelor falls.

Happy Reading my loves,
