Book Review: Bet Me by Lila Monroe

Bet Me

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 Gs 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!

Bet Me is a humorous, second-chance love story. The characters snarky banter had me laughing out loud. What I love the most was the duel POV that provide heart felt moments.

Lizzie is an assistant curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She is planning her debut as lead curator of a "Golden Age of Hollywood" exhibition. Jake Weston is assigned to assist Lizzie with procuring the more difficult pieces she'll need for the show. As it turns out this isn't the first time Jake and Lizzie have crossed paths. They had a one time embarrassingly, funny hook-up with Jake passing out between Lizzie's legs. Although Lizzie is still attracted to Jake she wants nothing to do with the cynical man who doesn't believe in romance.

Lizzie has combed Tinder for romance. All she wants to be is wooed but all she's received are a few pearl necklaces. After a final failed date Lizzie goes on a drunkin' recording, intended for her sister, vowing to take herself off the market until the men of New York get their acts together. The recording goes viral and Lizzie finds herself in a new predicament. Her strikes is having the opposite effect, now she's attracting the guys wh o see her as some kind of conquest. Is Jake just another conquest seeker? Or is there more to him than meets the eye?

I loved Bet Me. Lizzie is an old soul who looking for romance in all the wrong places. Her noble vow doesn't take long to become a comedy of errors (more bad dates). I loved the chemistry between Jake and Lizzie. Although they had different ideas regarding romance they meshed. The story is funny, sweet and memorable. 5 Stars!
