Crave (Hot Guy: Archer)

Author: Monica Murphy 

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.

 After I read a small little excerpt I couldn't stop reading it, and the best part was that it was only $0.99! 

I love when a guy falls for his best friend's sister. Crave has a classic storyline that you would expect, but at the same this it has a small spin. 

"If Gage came out at this very moment, he would take one look at me and know exactly what I'd just done. His baby sister." 

Archer and his friends make a bet that the last one that remains single wins a millions dollars. Archer doesn't want to lose this bet but there is one girl that he knows that could make him lose: Ivy. His best friend's sister. Archer is a beautiful man, I can just imagine him. Although he really wants to stay away from Ivy, he knows he can't. I love the way he can be a jerk but has good intentions behind his jerkiness. 

"Glancing over my shoulder, I find him flashing that trademark panty-melting smile at me. I absolutely refuse to let my panties dissolve even a fraction of a second."

Ivy has always liked Archer. However, I loved that she isn't obvious that she likes him. She's actually a bitch to him and I loved that about her. She doesn't take crap from him. She is also very frontal when she bargains a little deal with him. I love heroines like her. They don't play games. 

"Is is wrong that I'm pleased with her remark? That she can't think when I'm around? I love that, especially because I feel the same way.

The banter between Ivy and Archer was absolutely hilarious. I loved the sexual tension that rose from those encounters. They are both stubborn and don't back down. I LOVE THIS! 

"And as I watch the car speed away, I feel like I'm watching my heart leave with it, forever in Ivy's possession. 

One thing that I didn't like was the time-lapse. When Archer and Ivy finally form a bond after two weeks together the author is just like like, "Yeah, so they formed a bond." I hate when this happens because I like to see the bond form, not just know that occurred. 

"You own me, Ivy. You own my heart. There's no one else I'd rather belong to."

Overall, I loved this book. It was an easy, fun read that takes no more than one day to read. I loved the conversations between the characters because they were so REAL. I love when authors can make a situation sound real even though it is not. Monica Murphy really knows how to portrayed billionaires! Archer, Gage, and Matt are three men that I would definitely label as HOT GUYS IN BOOKS.
