Bastard Bachelor Society (The Bachelors Club, #1)
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.

Brooks Bennett created the Bastard Bachelor Society with his friends. The number one rule… stay single. That is no problem for Brooks. He’s not interested in a relationship.

My favorite part of this book was the banter of this couple. It was so flirty, fun, and they had such a spark. Even though they were ‘just friends’ it was obvious for quite a while they were more. I also really loved Abbot’s Nan. She was hilarious and I loved the relationship Brooks developed with her. Oh Brooks… it took him way too long to see what was right in front of his face, but when he did, he was all in. There were parts through the middle he frustrated me, but by the end, I loved him. I loved Abbot’s character through the entirety of the book. And as I mentioned before, I especially loved her Nan. 
I truly think Sara Ney is one of the funniest authors out there. She does rom-coms so well. This one had me laughing out loud more than once. If you’re looking for a hilarious friends to lovers romance I would recommend this one. I’m excited to see where this series goes. Brooks friends seem… interesting LOL!

    *****FOUR STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}It’s looking like Sara Ney has the makings of another hit series. “BASTARD BACHELOR SOCIETY” was filled with non-stop laughs and was pure enjoyment to read from beginning to end. The Hero and Heroine are equally silly and simply lovable characters. Adding to the cast of characters I loved were Abbott’s fancy little kitty Desdemona, who we get a few chapters in her POV, and Abbott’s Nan, who is quite the character and a meddling matchmaker. *****FOUR STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author}It’s looking like Sara Ney has the makings of another hit series. “BASTARD BACHELOR SOCIETY” was filled with non-stop laughs and was pure enjoyment to read from beginning to end.

If you're looking for a lighthearted, sweet, laugh till you pee, and super swoony romance, look no further! Because this book was all of those things and so much more. Sara Ney has started her brand new series with a bang by giving us a charming and hilarious romance between two neighbors that you won't be able to get enough of. Abort, my head cries. Touch her, my dick urges. Everyone calm the fuck down, my brain shouts, irritated. I love Ney's brand of sass, but she seriously brought it with these characters. Brooks and Abbott were pure magic on the pages. Their chemistry was instant and potent. I fell hard and fast for the two of them and their adorable road from awkward neighbors to friends to romance. Abbott Margolis is the female version of myself, and I want to strangle her and stick my dick in her at the same time. Wait—that didn’t come out right, which only makes my mind wander further into the gutter: what kind of kink is Abbott into? Choking? Spanking? Biting? Licking? Bent over from behind? Brooks has sworn off women after his last relationship ended. Who needs the complication of women when you have the lustrous career you've worked your entire life for? You have good friends, a great apartment, what else is missing? Ah yes. A secret society formed between said friends that swears off relationships and comes with stylish smoking jackets. Unfortunately for Brooks, he doesn't really stand a chance...poor bastard.Brooks lives in a shiny new apartment, but he's never met his sassy new neighbor. And when they finally do? Fireworks. Well, kinda. It's a lot awkward and seriously hilarious. They soon develop a sweet friendship that's full of incredibly endearing secondary characters. There's the fiery gran, the evil cat, and the hilarious best friends. All of it combines into one funny, swoony, and charming read that I couldn't put down for even a second.I loved Sara's Douchebags, but I have a feeling I'm going to obsess over her Bachelors even more!

Not because the book isn’t complete (it is- there is no cliffhanger) but because I am IN LOVE WITH THIS WORLD. Sara Ney has written a HILARIOUS neighbors to lovers romance with this book and I was giggling the whole way through. Not only that, I felt so connected to Brooks and Abbott (she’s a girl, don’t let the name fool you). I think this is because I saw a little of myself in both of them! Their sense of humor, the way the act when around each other, and the silly things they do had me in a fit of giggles. I’m telling you; my stomach was ACHING because of the amount of laughter coming from the depth of my soul!!!! AH!!! If you’re a fan of romantic comedies, you won’t want to miss this book! It’s so much more than the title (I’ll admit, it made me think this was another DB book). READ. THIS. BOOK!Abbott and Brooks are neighbors. They live across the hall from one another and have hit it off from their first “meeting”. It may not have been the best meeting for Brooks, but it led to a fantastic friendship! The two spend all their time together as JUST FRIENDS and show no mercy when it comes to picking on each other. But things start to get blurry when they decide to try out an extreme cuddle… and their vastly important friendship may lead to something neither of them really wanted in the first place… How the Bastard Bachelor society fits into this story is for potential readers to find out! It may or may not leave some characters feeling a bit hesitant when it comes to romance and there’s a possibility that it stands in the way of true love. But sometimes out characters need to figure this out for themselves which is exactly what happens in BBS. You are going to LOVE IT. Secondary characters also play a major role in this book. The first one that comes to my mind (and may even be my favorite character EVER) is Desdemona. She’s the attack cat (bahaha) of Abbotts. She may or may not have two chapters in her own POV too so… You’ll have to read it to see what that’s all about, but she really steals the show! She’s a barrel of laughs!!! Then we have Nan. She may be rich and loves spoiling those she loves but she’s also pretty aggressive when it comes to hooking her granddaughter up. Sort of reminds me of my own nan! I LOVED HER! And the other bastards? Well, here’s to hoping their books are coming soon because I honestly cannot wait!Romcom readers, don’t miss Sara Ney’s latest! It’s a hit! _________________________________________ Let’s Connect: My Blog | Bookstagram | Facebook Page | Twitter | Bookbub

It was simply and utterly unputdownable, and I devoured it in a day. I loved Brooks and Abbott and everything about their sweet and perfectly matched pairing. Five stars for Brooks, Abbott and Sara Ney.

With lots of funny moments and juvenile humour, and a fun and heartfelt friends-to-lovers romance, I really enjoyed this one!Brooks Bennet is a successful architect basking in his mid 20s and the joy of being young, single and successful. After being badly burned by his last relationship, he is keen to bring his buddies around to his way of thinking, and so he forms the Bastard Bachelor Society – basically an agreement between him and his two best friends to avoid relationships and commitments… with clear rules and a hefty wager attached.And then Brooks meets Abbot. Abbot Margolis is Brooks’ neighbour, and from the first moment they meet they slip into an easy, open and honest friendship. It’s almost like they latch on to each other, hanging out, sharing food, laughing, bantering, bickering and teasing, and their friendship is so much fun! “This is my apartment,” I remind her.“Mi casa es su casa.”“My house is not your house.”“Mi stuff es su stuff.” But that friendship has a little bit of something extra. Abbott Margolis is the female version of myself, and I want to strangle her and stick my dick in her at the same time. Wait—that didn’t come out right There’s a flirtiness between them that neither of them are initially wanting to explore, though the attraction is definitely there, and their chemistry adds a wonderful dynamic to their relationship. “This is my safe place.”Her safe place? I don’t even know what that means. “What the heck does that mean?”“It means I came over here because I wanted company and I know I don’t have to worry about you hitting on me because we’re just friends.”Well fuck.Friend-zoned?I already decided to friend-zone her – where does she get the audacity to friend-zone me? Doesn’t she realize the pecking order here? It starts with me. Me, at the top, hen-pecking away and deciding who gets what.I do the zoning in my relationships. Me.Not her. Bennett is immature in a lot of ways, but he's so funny. His cocky confidence is balanced well with his self-deprecating self awareness, and I love that so much of the book is written from his POV. Me: The cat gets more attention than I do.Abbott: Whose fault is that? Are you one of those guys who doesn’t want a commitment but who also wants girls falling all over him?Yes. One hundred percent.Me: No.But yeah, totally. Abbott is also really funny, and she handles Bennett so well. And an unexpected highlight – Abbott’s Nan who Bennett claims as his own, and who loves nothing more than interfering in her Granddaughter’s life. But things slowly change between this fun duo as their friendship becomes complicated by their mad attraction to each other. Watching them feel it, acknowledge it, and then deal with it is an entertaining ride with minimal angst and drama, and ultimately a really sweet love story.It’s not got a lot of depth, but it’s definitely a fun, light read. I enjoyed this one!3.5 stars.An Advanced Review Copy was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Once we got out of the whole club creation process, which I understand was part of the series setup, and we got into Brooks and Abbott meeting, it really elevated my interest. The exchanges between our main characters were absolutely hilarious. They were comfortable with one another in a way that usually takes time to develop, yet it still felt right for these two.

Desdemona’s perspective was also something new and refreshing. Overall an enjoyable read with plenty of laughs on offer. Complementary copy received and voluntarily reviewed.

No. Dating.Date a girl and you lose the bet. And let’s just say, our dear architect, Brooks- does not want to lose. Overall I liked the story, the characters were funny. Wasn’t too keen on Brooks, but I could work with it. The “he’s a bastard”- vibe, wasn’t really that strong. ☺️It was a very sweet, very funny “friends to lovers”- romantic comedy. I was lacking a bit more personal development, a bit more depth, and our two main characters were a bit too cheesy for my liking. I was expecting a bit more grown up romance, I guess. 🤔Our third POV was no other than the cat. A POV that was funny, yes, but didn’t really bring anything to the story, and I found it quite unnescessary. Plus, I really couldn’t take it seriously. It was a cat😳😂The writing was pleasant and flowed nicely, and I really loved that Ney tried to write something different from her usual sport-romance (which I love!).

I am so obsessed with her stories that I can't help but devour them in one sitting! Brooks and Abbott were no exception!! They just clicked and everything about them was perfect. Their banter, their attraction and the feels! What an Unbelievable start to a new series! Besides the addicting banter and humor in GAHHH!!

Their banter, their attraction and the feels! What an Unbelievable start to a new series!  Besides the addicting banter and humor in this story, what I loved more than anything was the impressive way Ney continues to write the male perspective. I swear she is one of the best in the industry who is always on her game when writing the male hero. I love being in their head and seeing their sarcasm, thoughts and just realistic "guy way of thinking." Brooks was sexy and self assured but he also came across as sweet and delicious. I loved his connection with Abbott and the endearing ways he would get close to her. Likewise, Abbott was one of my favorite types of heroines: Quirky, full of spunk and independent enough to dance to her own tune while still having her eye out for Mr. Right. These two together were all sparks and giggles and I for one couldn't get enough!  I am now seriously obsessed with the THE BASTARD BACHELOR SOCIETY!!! Bring on more books in this series! 5 stars! ~Ratula <3***Oh my word, this book had me all over the place. For real.It started off with a lot of -- what the heck is happening? Who are these people? What in the world are they doing? More importantly - why??? Picture my head tilted like a befuddled puppy. It's not that the story is confusing, but I didn't understand the characters or their motivations or their interactions. It all seemed a little random and chaotic and...immature.But there was magic between Abbott and Brooks for sure. I know that because even though I spent the first quarter of this book with my eyebrow furrowed, I quickly found myself smiling like a dope at my kindle -- occasionally letting loose a gleeful giggle. Because the banter, y'all? The banter is on point. It's the perfect balance of playful, flirty, and hilarious and it gave them this chemistry that I found completely irresistible. I loved the easy way they gravitated toward each other and the sweet way that their friendship blossomed before it grew heated and into so much more. Together, they were this perfectly adorable, slightly perplexing package, and I couldn't get enough of them.What we have here are two characters who unapologetically march to the beat of their own drums. And somehow, the discord and chaotic noise they made separately became some sort of sweet melody when they got together. It works in a way that I can't really even describe. There were times when Abbott's dialogue literally mimicked my internal thoughts regarding what Brooks was doing. I adored her. She was funny, sardonic, and delightfully mischievous. And her personally shines when set against Brooks's -- who is decidedly more, uh...buffoonish? But lovable, to be sure. They bring balance to each other and it was so satisfying - and fun - to watch them fumble into feelings for each other.Also? Secondary character game is amazing (and unexpected)! Nan - that old scene-stealer - she's the real MVP in this book. She heightened the quirk and delivered plenty of belly laughs and took the fun of this story into the next level. And that's maybe the perfect way to describe the book: fun. There's not a ton of depth here, and it's pretty low angst (which is not a criticism, it was actually refreshing!) - but it's a super playful, super sweet love story and I enjoyed the heck out of it in the end. I can't wait to see what comes next! ~ Shelly, 4 Stars

He doesn't want anything to do with being in a relationship... that is until he meets his neighbor, Abbott.Let's just say that when Abbott and Brooks meet its one of those meet-cute moments. Abbott refused to hold the elevator open for him and the next time they see each other Brooks invites himself over for breakfast and they soon become fast friends. Friends who start feeling more for each other. I loved the witty banter between Abbott and Brooks. Of course let's not forget about Desdemona, the evil cat and Nan. With equally funny secondary characters this series is just bound to leave you feeling happy!A sweet and fastpaced read, once again Sara shows us why she rocks at writing RomCom. I'm excited for this wonderful new series. One thing is for sure: It's going to be a wild ride! *Edits were taken from the author.*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author through Wildfire Marketing Solutions.

    I enjoyed this book by Sara Ney. Was this my favorite book by Ney, no, but it got the job done.I liked Abbott a lot; her down-to-earth persona despite her family having lots of money was truly endearing and refreshing. Her Nan was the best character in the entire story...love her so much!Brooks was an ok character; not my favorite of Ney's men but I still enjoyed him. I was looking for his character to be more of a true bastard but he was more nice guy. His terror of Abbott's cat was fantastic I enjoyed this book by Sara Ney.

I liked the banter between both Brooks and Abbott but the spark was more sparkler than firecracker, if that makes sense. There were times when the humor felt a bit overworked; as if it were TRYING too hard. However, as the story progressed, I did feel their connection more.The one thing that bugged me the most was (view spoiler)[the chapters from the cat's POV...um, those just didn't work for me and didn't add anything to the story. I would have preferred those be left out and to see the connection/chemistry between Abbott and Brooks be developed more. I'm sure some will love those odd little chapter nuggets, they just weren't for me. (hide spoiler)]Overall this was a fun read and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.**arc provided for honest review**

Brooks and Abbot have been neighbors for a while, but they never really run into each other. That changed after a chance meeting and before Brooks knows it, he was spending a lot of time in Abbot’s apartment. Brooks is telling himself they are just friendly, platonic - a big lie of course. Abbot knows something is holding Brooks back and she friend zoned him right of the bat. It’s hilarious these two think they can lie to themselves but their attraction they have for each is off the chart and escalading at a rapid speed. I love the plot – slow burn, flirty, friends – to – lovers romance. Awesome banters. The grandma and the crazy cat are hilarious as well. Over all, this one is lighthearted, sweet, fun, entertaining read. Beautiful start to a new series. 3.5 stars

    Interesting story, that's for sure. Entertaining and gripping. I couldn't put this down and I had a constant smile on my face while reading. But I couldn't connect with the characters and I had trouble feeling their chemistry and attraction. But Sara Ney's writing style kept my eyes glued to the pages and surprised me with a story I didn't expect at all.Full Review to come soon

I wasn't too sure what to expect with this book as I've only previously read Ney's NA sports romances (the How to Date a Douchebag and Jock Hard series are incredible and I highly recommend!) but I'm so glad for the chance to see this author flex those wonderful writer's muscles and wow us with this new series. Don't worry Ney fans, the familiar sarcastic wit and humour you know and love still dominates this series!The story begins with Brooks Bennett creating a secret men's society, known as the Bastard Bachelor Society, with his two best friends and forming a wager to see who can remain a bastard bachelor for the longest.The rules are simple:1) Remain single2) Don't see the same woman more than 3 days/nights per week3) Don't talk about the societyCynical, workaholic Brooks thinks he has it in the bag -- until he meets his neighbour, Abbott Margolis, and the two develop a fast friendship. But when the friendship includes hanging out for days on end, constantly thinking about each other and mentally stripping the other person of their clothes; just how long can this 'friendship' last and just how far is Brooks willing to go to win the bet?This story was so fun to read and the chemistry between Brooks and Abbott was fantastic. Despite their different upbringings, Brooks and Abbott were very similar. Both were quite lovable characters with a drive to succeed professionally, a silly and sarcastic humour, and neither minded the meddling nature of sassy Nan Margolis. These two were so in-sync that they even decided to friendzone each other at the same time - though for very different reasons."I already decided to friend-zone her—where does she get the audacity to friend-zone me? Doesn’t she realize the pecking order here? It starts with me. Me, at the top, hen-pecking away and deciding who gets what. I do the zoning in my relationships. Me. Not her." - Brooks BennettThere were just a couple of minor things that stopped me from completely loving this book. Firstly, Brooks' whining at the beginning of the book. He was so overly dramatic that I immediately found myself not liking him and wondered why none of the characters reached over and just slapped him. However, Ney is a fantastic author who allowed Brooks to grow as a person and by the end of the book, he was significantly less whiny. The second thing was the cat, Desdemona. Without giving any spoilers away, I just didn't understand Desdemona at all. I know a lot of people enjoyed Desi but I wasn't one of them, unfortunately.Overall, I found the Bastard Bachelor Society to be quite enjoyable and think the series has a lot of great potential! I feel like the rest of the series is going to be a wild ride and I'm definitely eager to see how things pan out for Brooks' two friends.Disclaimer: Thank you to Sara Ney and Wildfire Marketing Solutions for the free copy in exchange for an honest review!

    I stumbled across Sara Nay when I read the first How to Date a Douchebag novel and she became an automatic one click author for me. So when I saw this one I didn't even glance at the blurb, I just assumed it was going to be more college romance (which I love and Sara does to perfection). However this was not new adult. But I freaking loved it so hard. And I had so many laugh out loud moments the family are giving me side eye.Abbott and Brooks were such a great couple.

From their second meeting they just had such great banter and weird chemistry. I spent the whole book wondering if this was the moment they were going to get naked.Brooks was a bit of a douche but he owned it and he was well aware that Abbott deserved so much more. And she did. Abbott is one of my favourite female characters in recent history. She was a little bit nuts and her inner monologue was hilarious. Omg I laughed so hard at Brooks and Desdemona's meeting, I think I might have pulled a muscle. And her getting her own chapter, I almost got eye strain checking it was her. Brilliant. Between her and Nan adding so much to the story I haven't been able to put my kindle down.I would have loved a longer epilogue, you know just 2 or 300 more pages. There were a few small things that felt a little unresolved and the ending felt a bit rushed but then again that might just be me always wanting more. I really can't wait to see where the rest of the series is going.

They both have their own quirks, they’re both smart and funny. They cracked me up and made my heart swell. I had the time of my life reading how they tried to navigate between their friendship and something more. Between laughable banter and ridiculous situations, their off-the-charts chemistry was palpable and that made me cheer on them like the biggest fan. I adore these two!Under any circumstances DO NOT eat anything during this read. Unless you want to choke. Sara is well known for her funny and sarcastic phrases, so eating snacks or drinking anything while reading BBS may be a little bit dangerous, especially when Nan shows up in the story (or Duchess Desdemona, the cat). By the way, where can I get a grandmother like that? I need one asap! Ney proved again that she’s the queen of rom-coms. I cannot wait for other guys in Bastard Bachelor Society to give back their jackets!*ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

I like books where main characters from the very beginning are bantering with each other in a funny way and when their slow burn relationship made me seat on the edge of anticipation, waiting for more. They've challenged one another but neither of them would admit their growing feelings, each one for their own reasons.Author wrote that story from dual perspective and I need to give her credit for, that she created great female character, but male hero and his thoughts, reactions were hit in the jackpot. Both of them were strong, confidential with amusing attitude.There were secondary characters who won me over and if I say one of them was cat named Desdemona, you've heard me right! Author gave it a voice and I was LMAO. Also Nan who was seventy old lady fire rocket, she rocks!It was that kind of a book that I just couldn't stop reading but grinning to myself and melting at the same time. If you're a fan of rom com, I recommend Bastard Bachelor Society standalone book, first part of new Bachelors Club series.

    3.5 STARSThe whole bastard bachelor society part of this book just made me roll my eyes. I don’t know why I just didn’t vibe with it. I could have done without it I hate to say. There were times I liked the main characters and times I didn’t. I think the cat, the intern, and the Nan were my favorite parts. It’s not bad, just not my favorite. I voluntarily read an early copy.

She was bold and honest with her feelings and I loved that about her. Brooks started off as a total jerk. As time progressed he won me over. He was just searching for someone to love who would love him back. They started out as friends and that developed into attraction. They shared chemistry and they resisted until Abbott took a risk and made it impossible for Brooks to deny her.A fun friends-to-lovers read with a great couple that will make you laugh and smile. Oh and a sassy cat that thinks he rules the world.

Brooks has two best friends whom he starts a gentleman’s club (society) with and wagers a bet who can stay single the longest. Even though Brooks had been hurt from a previous relationship that got him to this stage, the fact they created the society was a very douchey thing to do and the three of them came out looking bad. The storyline was a little fast and somewhat forced to begin with, but I settled in and started to connect with the characters. Brooks wasn’t a douchbag really and the way he wanted to be apart of Abbott’s world was sweet. Most of the book takes place at either Abbott or Brook’s apartment and I would have like to see them venture out more. I felt there wasn’t anything new or surprising happen within the storyline and I was hoping for something more. Did I enjoy the book, for sure. There were some funny parts and even a little angst. Will I try the next book in the series, most likely as I’m hoping she can make these other two friends more lovable. **Reviewed by Monique for JoandIsaLoveBooks Blog.

Mix it up. 3) No giving gifts. 4) No marriage or babies. 5) We don't speak of the BBS. 6) Never let a girl wear your BBS smoking jacket. 7) If you want out of the BBS, it has to go to a vote.

Same goes for adding new members. If any of them breaks one of these rules, they forfeit their wager. Needless to say, the three are just begging to be brought to their knees by an awesome woman. And Brooks' awesome woman is Abbott Margolis of THOSE Margolises. But she's funny (so freaking funny) and sweet and incredibly sassy, and it's inevitable that she and neighbor Brooks end up as friends, then more, because they're perfect for each other. I loved their snark and banter, and how scared he was of her little, tiny (devil) cat, Desdemona. And I love her Nan and her best friend, but mostly I just loved Abbott and Margolis together, both as friends and as more. I've gotta say that I hope all the proceeding stories in this series are as good as this one, because it's awesome! A funny, witty and snarky, and sweet friends to lovers tale.

Brooks and his buddies start a gentleman's club because they want to be single. Kind of. They are bored, acting like jerks and decide to place bets on it. They all have something to lose if they get involved and fall in love. Enter Brooks' cute, sexy, hilarious neighbor, Abbott. The first time he meets her she closes the elevator door in his face. The second time, she feeds him. Then she friend-zone's him which is perfect! But it irritates him. Women don't friend-zone him! That's his MO. Abbott is different than any woman he's ever known. She's sassy, smart, sexy, funny and doesn't take his crap. Abbott truly loved hanging out with Brooks. They watch tv, talk and eat. Always with the eating. She doesn't know why he won't date. But she's can't pretend she doesn't have feelings for him forever. What happens when things go too far? Will Brooks pick Abbott over the stupid bet? Brooks and his friends are childish and stupid, but that's part of the deal. They were annoying at times, but I really did love Brooks! His inner dialogue is hilarious even if he can be a pig at times. Deep down he's sweet and nice and caring. And dirty! Abbott is so freaking funny! Their banter was off the charts funny! Overall, I laughed, swooned, laughed some more and wanted to slap him! The cat and Nan were also hilarious! "Lordy, please do not tell me you and your buddies have a secret club.”“I won’t.” He won’t even look me in the eye. Dead. Giveaway. They totally do. I squint over at him. “How old are you?”“Old enough to know you’re making fun of me.”“Because it’s a secret club?” Man, I love teasing him. It’s so easy""Abbott loves to eat and chill and she’s funny in a cute kind of way. Like, not so much ha ha funny as adorable funny.”“Say funny one more time,” Blaine deadpans. “She’s fucking funny, okay? Quit riding my nuts.”
