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.
Amazing. I loved this story. Even though it’s a short read things didn’t seem to be rushed. The story flowed smoothly and kept my attention from beginning until the very end. I was able to read it in one sitting.
Both Ivy & Archer have known each other for a long time. He’s always been attracted to his best friend little sister, but has never crossed the line where she is concerned. To say he’s a player would be an understatement. He goes through woman almost as fast as he changes underwear. He is not the commitment type of guy that’s for sure.
Having said that I loved him from the beginning. Even though he’s not the commitment type he admits to himself that if he were then Ivy would be the woman he’d consider committing too.
Ivy’s has always thought Archer was gorgeous and sexy, but she knows how he is. She knows he’s a player and she doesn’t want to go down that road. Plus he’s her brothers best friend so that’s basically a no-no as well.
I was so happy when they acted upon their mutual attraction. I thought they made a great couple and I couldn’t wait for Archer to commit to Ivy and only Ivy.
The sexual scenes are pretty much mainstream. They are not overly explicit in nature, but they are enjoyable to read.
The secondary characters are all very interesting in this book and I’m looking forward to reading both Gage & Matt’s stories.
Overall, I truly loved this one. If you’re a fan of Monica Murphy stories I highly suggest you give this book a try. This is going to be a fantastic series.
