Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills returns with an all-new swoon-fest of a novel about what happens when you look beyond labels and take a chance on love.
Sexy Athlete: I bet you…
Penelope Graham: Burn in hell, quarterback.
The late night text is random but Penelope knows exactly who “Sexy Athlete” is. And why she shouldn’t take his wager.
Walks on water and God’s gift to women.
Just ask him.
His bet? He promises Penelope he’ll win her the heart of the nerdy guy she’s been crushing on. His plan—good old-fashioned jealousy. Once her crush sees her kissing Ryker, he’ll realize what he’s missing. Sounds legit, right? The only question is…why is Ryker being so nice to her?
Lover of sparkly vampires and calculus.
His mortal enemy.
Penelope knows she shouldn’t trust a jock, but what’s a girl to do when she needs a date to Homecoming? And Ryker’s keeping a secret, another bet, one that could destroy Penelope’s heart forever.
Will the quarterback score the good girl or will his secret mean everyone loses at this game of love?
Find out in this all-new standalone novel…
My Review: 3 stars
Okay….your going to see the 3 stars and think I didn’t like the book. That is not the case.
Penelope and Ryker have a college romance. She is a book worm, he is the star quarterback. His friends bet him that he can’t get her on a date. He loses. Then he decides he wants to help Penelope get the guy she has a crush on. Of course Ryker gets jealous when he sees her with this guy and makes a plan to win her for himself.
Overall the book was okay. The character development was pretty good. The story flowed well. My issue was the plot was very predictable. I knew the plot going into the book. But I was hoping it would be spiced up some. I was hoping that something extra would have been added to give it more life.
This book is good if you like those predictable plot lines or if you just need a simple, easy read. I was just looking for more out of it.
