When a million-dollar bet with his friends throws down a challengeâ€”last bachelor standing takes allâ€”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. An Avon Romance

That one single word best describes my life these last few years. Iâ€™m working at a temporary job until I can finally break free. Iâ€™m my little brotherâ€™s temporary mother since our mom doesnâ€™t give a crap about either of us. And Iâ€™m that temporary girl all the guys want to get with because I give it up so easily. According to the rumors, at least.
But now Iâ€™m the temporary girlfriend of Drew Callahan, college football legend and all around golden guy. Heâ€™s beautiful, sweetâ€”and heâ€™s hiding way more secrets than I am. Heâ€™s brought me into this fake life where everyone seems to hate me. And everyone seems to want something from him. The only thing he seems to want though isâ€¦
I donâ€™t know what to believe anymore. All I know is, I think Drew needs me. And I want to be there for him.
That one single word best describes my life at this very moment. I lost the last games of the season and both my team and my coach blame me. I lost the last two months because I drowned in my own despair like a complete loser. And I lost the only girl who ever mattered because I was afraid being with me would destroy her.
But now I realize how truly lost I am without her. She has become my storyâ€¦and even though she acts like sheâ€™s moved on, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. Sheâ€™s beautiful, sweetâ€”and so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is help her. Be there for her.
If only I could convince Fable to give me a second chance. Then I wouldnâ€™t feel so lost anymore, and neither would she. We could be found together.
