Publisher Description

The Montgomery Ink saga continues with an unforgettable romance where two best friends make a bet that could change their lives forever.

Bristol Montgomery and Marcus Stearn have been best friends for so long, they sometimes forget when they weren't as close as they are now. While friends and family think there's something beneath the surface of their friendship, the two have always been steadfast in their stance on no heated looks or deeper feelings.

The problem? Years ago, they promised each other that if neither of them was married by the time Bristol turned thirty, they'd marry each other. 

Even though both have long since decided never to force the other into an arranged marriage, circumstances and sheer stubbornness force them to refuse to back out of their deal. 

Now, they're determined to get married—even as dangerous exes and feelings they deny, block their path.

Love these two

I loved the story of Bristol and Marcus. This was definitely different than any other book I’ve read. My one and only complaint was there was a truly predictable scenario that I wasn’t too fond of. Other than that one moment, I loved every second of it!
Like I said, these two were totally different. I adore that they were such good friends and then made that crazy promise! I thought it was so truly hysterical, but it definitely made you go “hmmm??”. To make a promise like they did was pretty ballsy, or dumb, depending on how you look at it. BUT, I LOVED IT! I thought it was definitely a drunken thought of some deeeeeep inner thinkings. Friends to lovers is one of my favorites, and they are always so sweet. I loved seeing the moment when they took their friendship to an entire different level. There was the perfect amount of hunger and confusion. It was great!
Hunger and confusion, it’s the best way to describe their relationship. They didn’t really know how to balance these unearthed feelings and and their friendship. Such a slippery slope that they completely flailed over themselves trying to navigate. They slipped down that slope in the worst way. One of the best parts of this is their family. Both of their families had such an impact on this story. The Montgomery clan is something so special, and their girlfriends are just as special. In this story the families were the perfect coaches. They truly were the glue that held Bristol and Marcus together. Helped them get past their fears and stupidity. Because when it came down to it, these two had a lot of fears and stupidity.
I can’t wait to see where Carrie Ann takes us next!

Of all of the Montgomery books, I think this one hits in my top favorites. I absolutely love childhood friends to lovers, but throw in this not quite arranged marriage and I am in love. Bristol and Marcus struggle with everyone already thinking that they are a couple when they are only best friends, but as a means to not lose their friendship they decide that if they are both single on Bristol's 30th bday that they will get married, but they must remain friends over the ten years to make sure they aren't marrying a stranger. Instead of bonding them closer this bargain actually strains their friendship as they both try to avoid the possibility of losing each other. I loved the twist with Bristol I honestly didn't see it coming but I am glad in the end it brought them closer together!
