Saucy, blistering and emotionally endearing, this third Billionaire Boys Club installment is sizzling good fun. With broad strokes and wry detail, Clare creates characters who are unapologetically individual and wonderfully unpredictable. She doesn’t pull punches, challenging her leading couple — and her readers — every step of the way, with a match that is so contentious and so unexpectedly explosive that there is no choice but to sit back and delight in every spat and encounter.

When her famous twin demands some quiet time to recuperate, responsible and dependable Audrey Petty is thrilled to spend a month with her childhood crush, Cade Archer, in his secluded mountain retreat. That is, until she finds his best friend and fellow billionaire, Reese Durham, in all his shameless and under-dressed glory. Reese is more than happy to get a little revenge for his ruined getaway by taunting the uptight Audrey — until he realizes what a fiery woman hides beneath her buttoned-up exterior. Reese embarks on a series of dares to push Audrey’s boundaries. But what will he do when the woman he couldn’t stand becomes the one woman he can’t forget?
