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?

"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.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a steamy, but thoughtful romance. It was thoughtful, entertaining, and well-written.
Nathan was my favorite character. I listened to Book 2 of the series first and purchased this one solely because his character made an impression. I loved how protective he was of Chloe. Chloe was also a very strong character. Nancy Herkness does a great job fleshing out her characters!
Lauren Ezzo did such a great job narrating Book 2 of the series that I bought Book 1!! She did a great job.
Sexy CEO wins at more than business!
At the beginning I was reluctant to finish the audiobook, because I think it's just another unworthy romance with steamy sex scene through the entire audiobook AND OMG the language so disgusting that bothering me, so I kept fast forward, but then I found out something in the story that arouse my respect for Chloe, and later for Nathan.
At the end I had to admit the story is quiet good sans the sex scene, and the narrator has done very good job. And I'm looking forward to venture another two of the series. I'm eager to find out how Luke Archer and Gavin Miller find their true love and also winning their wager.
"Draws you in quickly"
I admit when I first started this book I wasn't all that into it but slowly but surely it started to draw you in and before you knew it, you couldn't turn it off.
The bed concept was ridiculously stupid. It really sort of pulled away from the story itself, but if you can get over that part, you'll probably enjoy the book and fall in love with their love.
You too will not be able to stop listening to it. He emotion is captivating.
Every girls fantasy... Being in the right place at the right time and having a billionaire fall in love with you
loved it. first time getting hold of Nancy Harkness and it did not disappoint. bravo!
Good story but way too long and drawn out. There were times when I just wanted to roll my eyes at some of the dialogue.
"Only Half a Book"
The CEO Buys In is only half (or a third) of a novel. It just stops after 6 hours so suddenly that I thought my MP3 player had died.
It's the start of an interesting story about 3 rich men who wonder if they would ever find real love with women NOT only interested in a sugar daddy.
I enjoy a book series if each one is a complete story; this one is like paying for a full course dinner and only getting an appetizer.
I loved the book, but by chapter 29 I wanted to shoot the narrator. She has a nice voice but after a while her "reading" grated on my nerves. I had to power thru the rest of the book
I personally prefer audio books
The concept is genius. wish i could set up the same thing to find me a man that isn't a piece of work.
Yes and i did lol
"Oooh, this is very good"
This is the first book I've purchased by Nancy Herkness and I wasn't disappointed.
Although I don't know what else will come I'm seriously looking forward to the next in this series...
A note about Lauren Ezzo, this narrator is also new to me and what a gem wonderful clear voice with believable accents.
