Lose a bet, lose your heart...
What is it about a junior-high crush that can send an otherwise intelligent woman into a tailspin? TV reporter Char Lynn wishes she knew. Jake Titus is too rich, too handsome, too arrogant: a trifecta that once lured Char into the best night-and worst morning-after-of her life. Now they've been thrown together in a wedding party. It's awkward, but survivable . . . until Jake stops acting like a jerk, and starts acting like the man she'd always hoped he could be.
If watching your brother marry your best friend is weird, being attracted to your best friend's other best friend is downright bizarre. Unfortunately for Jake, Char hasn't forgotten how he once tossed her aside. Worse still, Jake's already-nutty grandma is even crazier about Char. Cue meet-cute shenanigans and all manner of meddling, and somehow, Jake's falling. For Char. Now all he has to do is make her believe it . . .
4.5 out of 5 stars for THE WAGER. Check out the blurb right here and read on for the rest of the review.
This review is going to be short and sweet... just like what I thought of Rachel Van Dyken's THE BET. It's definitely a quick, fun read.
"I have a proposition for you." Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus's mouth. It's been years since Kacey's seen her childhood friend Jake, but the minute Jake mentions his ill grandmother, Kacey is ready to do anything for the sweet old woman. And if that means pretending they're engaged for her sake-so be it.
What’s with all the hot cowboys? I just fell in love with SHINE NOT BURN and it’s not just because of the hot, shirtless, buff cowboys. Check out the blurb:
IT HAPPENED IN VEGAS.
Still drying my eyes... hold on a sec...
If you don't know it already, then you should know that I'm a sucker for this type of novels. RUIN is the first book by Rachel Van Dyken that I've read and I absolutely want more more more. Now, RUIN got into my heart hook line and sinker and did not let go even until after the last page. To get a feel for what I'm saying, check out the blurb:
I'm not your typical girl. I've been running away from the memories that haunt me for so long that depression has become my only comfort. I was content in the darkness...until Wes Michels offered to be my light.
I really enjoyed reading this one!
Nikolai Leokov never thought he'd fall in love with the only girl he's ever befriended.
Colleen Hoover definitely knocked this one out of the park. Blurb right here:
There are two sides to every love story. Now hear Will’s.
Who am I?
