Series: The Bet
on October 1, 2013
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 . . .
Grandma Nadine does it again in the second book of The Bet series by Rachel Van Dyken! If you have read The Bet than you KNOW what I’m talking about when it comes to her! Yesterday I was in a bit of a book rut and after starting 3 different books I finally settled on The Wager. Boy was I glad I did! I SO needed some of crazy Grandma Nadine’s antics. She is such a hoot and her meddling skills are A+ in this one. Her granny scheming is focused around Jake Titus and one of his childhood friends Char. I was glad to see Jake get his happily every after and catch up with Travis and Kacey. I hope this isn’t the last we see of this family and with the way the book ended it looks like there may be more Grandma Nadine in the future! **Crosses Fingers** If you are in the mood for some comedic relief from all of the tragic and heartbreaking stories out there I would definitely recommend The Bet series!
