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.

Book Extras: Read an excerpt
One million dollars to the last single man standing. Archer Bancroft thinks he has this in the bag. He's a womanizer who works too much. Plus there is only one woman he's interested in and she's his best friends little sister, Ivy Emerson.
Archer has been annoying Ivy since he moved in next door when he was a teenager and all they do is bicker. She finds him arrogant and pompous and way to good looking. Then while at a wedding they find themselves alone and the sexual tension explodes. So they allow themselves one night of hot sex because them together is wrong... and Gage, Ivy's brother, will kill Archer for touching his sister.
But one night isn't enough. Archer is willing to lose the bet for Ivy. Now, he just has to make Ivy see that he's the one for her.
I am a sucker for billionaires because, well it's like the ultimate fantasy to fall in love with a ridiculously sexy and wealthy man. However, I will say that the billionaire can come off a bit too narcissistic and a bit crazy. But I think Archer has just the right amount arrogance to make him sexy and there is the lack of crazy that I like.
I also love the whole falling in love with my best friend's sister troupe. This leads Archer to getting himself in trouble because he doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut. But that mouth of his can sure get him out of trouble. The man can talk dirty so well. Ivy's not bad at it either. These two create enough heat to warm a high rise.
I really enjoyed Crave. I loved Archer and Ivy. Sure, the story was a bit predictable but it was more about the journey of Archer and Ivy. They had me laughing, they had me blushing, and they had the butterflies going in my stomach. A perfect combination.
I look forward to reading about the two remaining Billionaire Bachelors. Gage is up next.
