Overview

What is the Bastard Bachelor Society?

It's a gentleman's club—like the dignified men of the past used to have.

Except, we're not gentleman, and we're not dignified.

We're ineligible bachelors; bored, jaded and not looking for relationships. Quite the opposite actually...
We're so committed to being single, we've created a high stakes bet to see who can remain single the longest. Rules are involved. Prizes.

Laugh it up, but I'm no loser.

Enemy number one to my single status? My irresistible neighbor, Abbott Margolis. She with her evil cat Desdemona, and Sexy AF pencil skirts. She's kind and beautiful and hilarious. We can't get involved, no matter how much her meddling grandmother pushes us together. But if I was going to lose this bet for anyone? It would be for Abbott.

Let's face facts: I'm a bastard, unwilling to settle down. Especially when there's a bet to win.

Boys clubs, cigars and blue velvet jackets. Brooks has all he could want out of life. He does still seem to have a bit of free time when the drinks aren’t flowing at the club with the boys though. When a chance encounter with his next door neighbour shows him an out of his free time. Abbott has her life figured out. Her one goal is to focus on proving herself at her family company. She doesn't have time for distractions or finding a guy. When Brooks invites himself in to her company his easy companionship seems just the answer. Fun friendship without the challenges of a relationship. It appears they have both got what they need from each other, friendship. Both somehow they both seem surprised that they have been friend zoned. But when does friendship become more and how does it suddenly grow when it is lease expected? EXPERT “Are you seeing anyone?” This makes me laugh, and before I can stop it, a loud one bursts out of me. “Um-no”. “What’s so funny about that?” “Um...nothing?” Nan sinks lower into the cushions of Abbott’s couch, taking me in. “Ah, I see. You’re one of those confirmed bachelors who has no intention of settling down.” She plucks an imaginary piece of lint from her expensive suit jacket. “Well.” She waves her manicured hand around dismissively, diamond ring sparkling, bracelets jingling. “No matter.” No matter? What does that even mean? Nan is a piece of work. “I don’t want a girlfriend.” Been there, done that. “No one really does, darling.” Nan smiles, but she’s patronizing me. “You young people and your ambitions. So admirable.” Don’t get your hopes up lady. I’m not a piece of meat dropped onto a plate for your precious granddaughter. “I don’t want a girlfriend.” I cannot stress it enough.

5 Words or Less: Boys Club, Bet, Friend-Zoned, Trope: Friends to Lovers Final Thoughts: 2.5 stars I really wanted to love this book, but there were several things that regularly pulled me out of the story. First, the inconsistencies in the characters' behaviors and actions had me constantly questioning their maturity. The heroine we're told is a giant nerd, and led to believe is a top-notch executive, thinks to herself that she's incapable of multi-tasking. She cannot handle confrontation with an employee, her grandmother, or the hero. The hero comes across as an immature 18-21 year old, not something you'd expect from a recently promoted architect that is on the fast track to a partnership. Also, his internal thoughts about his friends, and the barbs he tossed their way, came across as extremely obnoxious. I really would have loved to see some acknowledgement and character growth in that regard. Lastly, the portrayal of Taylor really, really bothered me. The first time we meet him, he's an eager assistant asking the hero to mentor him. Within a few chapters, he's portrayed as the stereotypical gay man-flighty and gossipy in an extremely over the top (and highly inappropriate) manner. Absolutely nothing was gained by portraying him in this way. While there was some fun banter between this couple, it wasn't enough for me to rate this book higher. I am not convinced that these two people belong together. I was left feeling disappointment, but I can accept that I won't love every book an author writes. This one book is not enough to put me off reading any future books in the series. Fingers crossed I'll love the next one more.

This was good, but not what I was expecting. I’m giving this 3.5 out of 5 stars. This review is for an ARC, and reflects my honest opinion. I thought this was going to be another new adult book, so I was surprised that it wasn’t. That being said, I liked Abbott’s character a lot. She was sweet, sarcastic, funny, etc., and I felt like we were a lot alike. The added bonus of her nan, who was a riot, really sold her character for me. The parts with the cat were pretty entertaining as well, especially when it met Brooks for the first time. I would have liked to see more of her being a boss lady at her job though. As for Brooks, I’m torn about him. I liked him when he was hanging out with Abbott, but on the occasions he spent time with his friends, I didn’t like him. He was a completely different person as if a switch was flipped. I would have liked to see more of his job as well; after he got his promotion, he pretty much didn’t work besides bringing home blueprints…that he didn’t do anything with, because he was spending time with his neighbor. I enjoyed that this was friends to lovers; this genre has been pushed to the side lately for enemies to lovers, which has been way overdone. There were a couple things that made me not able to rate this higher: the missing depth in their lives (probably 90% of the book was set in their apartments, we didn’t get to meet their families besides Nan, we barely saw their friends, etc.) plus while I believed they had a fantastic friendship, the romantic part (at least the expressing of feelings) felt like it came out of nowhere. I enjoyed this overall, but it wasn’t my favorite book from this author.
