When it comes to love, all bets are off…
Failure has never been an option for self-made billionaire
Blaise Mortenson. So when his friends suggest a wager to see who will be the
last bachelor among them, he takes the bet. He has no doubt he’ll
win—especially after he hires Hadley Lowell to find perfect matches for his
friends. Now all Blaise has to do is ignore his growing attraction to the
gorgeous, demanding matchmaker.
Hadley runs her business like a clandestine military op,
precisely controlling every feasible outcome. But falling for a client? That
was a possibility she never saw coming. Blaise’s drive, determination, and the
softer side he tries to hide from the world appeals to her on a gut-deep
level—but while her matchmaking success rate is unbeatable, finding love for
herself has been nearly impossible. There’s no way her happily ever after could
come in the form of a tech billionaire who isn’t even looking for love…is
there?
What should have been a simple business transaction quickly
turns into something way more complicated, and Blaise starts to wonder if he’s
in danger of losing more than just the bet when all is said and done…
Review

Ari’s  🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Blaise and his billionaire friends have a standing bet. Whoever marries loses and last man standing takes all. With three men down and two to go, he’s determined to win. At a friends suggestion he hires Hadley, a very successful matchmaker to help him marry off his last two single friends. Hadley doesn’t date clients and he is trying to keep as far away from catching feelings as possible. What could go wrong?

This book was so fun! I loved watching Blaise and Hadley dance around their obvious mutual attraction. Blaise was such stubborn man who thought he knew it all and it bordered on annoying at times. Thankfully he walked the walk more than he talked the talk when it came to his reluctant feelings for Hadley. Hadley was great! She was strong and stood up to Blaise and never took any of his crap. As much as both MCs didn’t want anything romantic with each other (and I sometimes wanted to smack them both upside the head to get their act together) you could clearly see they were meant to be and it was so easy to root for them.

Excerpt
Blaise wanted to memorize every detail.
Her blue eyes reminded him of the sky on a summer day, when
flowers bloomed, the sun shone, and the dark, lonely nights didn’t last as long
as they did in winter.
He stared transfixed, connected to this stranger by an
invisible force. Awareness thrummed through him. Staring was rude, but he
couldn’t look away from her.
Noises sounded. Muted footsteps. A door. A phone.
All Blaise could focus on was her.
Maybe this trip hadn’t been such a bad idea. He couldn’t
remember the last time he’d been so…intrigued.
She blinked. “Can I help you?”
Her voice was deeper than expected, a tad husky. Sexy. He
wanted to hear her say more and laugh. He couldn’t wait to hear her laugh.
She cleared her throat. “You’re Blaise Mortenson.”
The woman didn’t sound surprised. If anything, she appeared
resigned.
Did that mean…?
Of course, it did. “You’re Hadley Lowell.”
She nodded once.
His insides deflated. A strange reaction. One he would
ignore.
Hadley eyed him curiously. “I thought you were too busy to
come to San Francisco.”
“Yes, but you’re the best matchmaker, so here I am.”
