Publisher's Summary

Self-made billionaire Nathan Trainor feels restless and disillusioned. His company may be thriving, but he can't find a woman who sees him for more than his wealth. With his love life in the red, he meets two other billionaire bachelors at the ultra-exclusive Bellwether Club. The three of them make a wager of the heart: they must find women who love them for who they are, not their money.
Savvy office temp Chloe Russell is trying to scrape together the money she needs to support her grandmother. So when a flu epidemic strikes Trainor Electronics and she's promoted to Nathan Trainor's assistant, she jumps at the lucrative opportunity. But then Nathan himself falls ill, and he and Chloe must work from his penthouse while he recuperates. Before long, it's clear there's genuine heat between them, and it's more than just a fever spike. Will Nathan win Chloe's heart - and the bet? Or will their differences destroy any chance for love?

The Publisher's Summary sums up this story well.. so all I'll add is that it has a very good and very enjoyable boss/assistant storyline which included humor, lots of sexcapades and a tiny bit of angst as two likeable characters have instant chemistry and very quickly fall for each other. But Chloe the Temp has obligations and can't believe that handsome Billionaire Nathan is looking for anything long-term so she eventually sacrifices her heart for job security. There's also a bit of drama from her Grandmother and Nathan's estranged Father.

I can't believe this very entertaining story of Chloe and Nathan's took place over a course of just a few weeks because there seemed to be so many layers to this and it never dragged. Dual POV's and good narration made it a captivating listen.

Worth a credit? Yes it would've been.. but at $7.34 for a 12.18 hr listen meant I didn't need to use a credit because anything under $10 I just buy to save my credit for a more expensive book AND I bought the three book series in Audible's half price sale so right now I'm doing the happy dance.

Well Written Book

An enjoyable love story by author Nancy Herkness. Combined with humor, tears, and romance, this is one book that will be impossible to put down.... (18+)......Angry that he was just lied to by another woman, billionaire and CEO of Trainor Electronics, Nathan Trainor sat by himself in the elite Bellwether Club, drinking away his scorn. Before long, he was joined by two other billionaires, and together, they made a bet. They would auction off something very important and valuable to each of them, if they could find the woman of their dreams, who loved them strictly for themselves, and not their money, but most importantly, it had to happen within a year. A wager of the heart? Why not? Only the next day, Nathan was regretting that decision, that is, until he met his new temp. While taking care of her grandmother at home, Chloe Russell was nervous and excited to be starting her new temp job at Trainor Electronics. She was only to be a receptionist at the lowest level, so, imagine her surprise, when she was asked to be the new temporary executive assistant to Nathan Trainor himself? Gads! He was gorgeous and sinfully sexy, but Chloe also knew that she needed to hold back any thoughts or attractions she was feeling towards this man. However, when an epidemic flu breaks out, causing Nathan to become deathly ill, the last thing Chloe ever expected, was to find herself at Nathan's penthouse, at his demanding request. Why her? She had responsibilities at home, but truth be told, she didn't want to be any closer to Nathan Trainor than she already was. Keeping his thoughts close to his heart, Nathan couldn't admit to anyone, that he had a strong attraction for Chloe Russell. To him, she was beautiful, sexy, smart, and caring, and not only that, he respected her to the highest level. Determined to keep her at all costs, he insisted that she still carry out her duties, by working for him out of his penthouse until he was fully recuperated. Except some things can't be extinguished, as their chemistry ignited into flames, causing them both to have a wild, heated love affair. Chloe's instincts were telling her to run, while her heart ruled against it, but when she discovers the truth about the bet, nothing could prepare her for the outcome of her heart breaking in two. Will the bet bring them closer together? Or will this wager of the heart drive them further apart than they ever thought possible?.........thank you.....♡♡

Lauren Ezzo was OK with the delivery of the story but her male voices need work.
