Title: Bet Me
Author: Lila Monroe
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 27, 2017
What happens when your sex strike goes viral -- and suddenly every man in town has their eye on your prize?
All I wanted was little old-fashioned romance. After a parade of Tinder disasters who think chivalry is giving me a pearl necklace on the first date, I made a pledge: until guys step up their game, this girl is off the market.
But one bottle of chardonnay later, and my drunken rant has gone viral. I’m the most famous person NOT having sex since the Jonas Brothers put on their purity rings. A men’s magazine has even put a bounty on my (ahem) maidenhead: fifty G's to whoever makes me break the drought.
Be careful what you wish for...
Now my office looks like an explosion in a Hallmark factory, I’ve got guys lining up to sweep me off my feet - and the one man I want is most definitely off-limits. Jake Weston is a player through and through. He’s also the only one who sees through the mayhem to the real me, but how can I trust he’s not just out to claim the glory?
And how will I make it through the strike without scratching the itch - especially when that itch looks so damn good out of his suit?
The thrill of the chaste has never been so sexy in Lila Monroe’s hilarious, hot new romantic read!
Barb's 5* Review:
*Received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
Well the first thing I have to say is, Holy Crap! I loved this story. Every single word drew me in and as with any book of Lila's, there is never enough. I want more of these two!
Lizzie is the kind of girl that believes in the happily ever after like you see in the movies. It's a passion, no, that's not giving her enough credit, it's a way of life. A way to stay on a path that leads her to her .
Jake is the hot, over confident man that doesn't believe in true love. However, he is the man that with a grin and his charm is able to get anything he wants. He has the drive to make it all happen.
You put the two of them together working on a project for The Met, add in a sex strike for Lizzie and all bets are off... or on depending on who you talk to. Lizzie never expected a drunken ramble about a sex strike to turn her world upside down. But that's what happened. All the while she had a man who was slowly pulling her towards him... the only thing for Lizzie was.... is it real?
Jake and Lizzie are two individual people that both have their own life plans. What they don't expect is that the whole "opposites attract" thing. Does true love exist? Can you truly have a happily ever after?
I'm the end, the only thing that matters is what their hearts tell them. It's a bumpy ride and one most people may travel, maybe not in the same manner that they do, but it's there nonetheless.
I really do with there was more to this story. It's a total winner on so many levels!
