New Release and Book Review: I Bet You by Isla Madden-Mills


She’s the one bet I can’t resist...

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.

I Bet You, an all-new sexy college romance standalone is LIVE!


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.
Ryker Voss.
Football star.
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?
Penelope Graham.
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?

4 stars  Oh how I love a good college sports romance and I Bet You does not disappoint.  While this book comes after I Dare You, it can be read as a standalone.  Ryker was introduced in the previous book and I am thrilled that he got his own book.  The storyline is exactly what you expect it to be based off the book’s title and the blurb. The college bet has been done before in other books, but this author takes it to another level.  The characters are likable and they have great chemistry.  There is humor, romance, unique family dynamics, and a bit of drama.  The book moves at a good pace and I was entertained until the very end.

Ryker is a sexy quarterback who is forced into a bet through the football team even though he wants nothing to do with it.  I love how he shows his soft side to Penelope.  Penelope is a fun heroine.  She is a smart and quirky and the type of girl I would have loved to be friend with when I was in college.  She is a budding romance writer and I found scenes written in her notebook to be hilarious. I really enjoyed watching how their relationship evolved as they go to know each other. I also liked the secondary characters of Blaze and Charisma and I would love for them to each get their own book. 

If you like sports romances and NA romances and/or love Isla Madden-Mills’ previous books, then you will enjoy I Dare You.  I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.
