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.

Crave is the first book in Monica’s Billionaire Bachelors Club series, I really liked it and I’m already looking forward to the next two books in the series. It was a perfect quickie read for me; on the shorter side but totally satisfying and just what I needed to scratch my reading itch. With Crave, Monica seems to turn down the angst and turn up the heat here, which, gets two thumbs up from this girl! Ivy and Archer have an undeniable chemistry from the start despite their best efforts to fight it, but hey, sometimes you just have to say screw it and go after what you want…and I’m realllyyyy glad they went after what they wanted 😉
Their bickering in the beginning entertained me and I really enjoyed seeing their love/dislike relationship develop into something more. I say love/dislike because it seems they both liked the other since they were teens; they just refused to admit it to each other…or themselves for that matter. All in all Crave kept me entertained throughout, it was the perfect lighter read in between the angstier books on my reading schedule. I loved our cocky billionaire Acher and sassy/smart ass Ivy, who never took Archers crap. I liked seeing their story develop and how it ends. I’m hoping that we will still see bits of them in book #2, Torn. That will focus on Gage, Ivy’s big brother and Archer’s best friend. 
Crave gets 4 stars from me

*Crave will be released on August 6th but you can pre-order now*
