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 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 was a cute and funny viral story gone wrong for the heroine Lizzie. After tiring of the same old same old men she finds on the dating sites, she send a message to her sister outlining everything that she's tire of putting up with and declares that if men aren't going to change, she's going on a strike. What she wakes up to is nothing short of disaster for her the next day. The whole world, it seems, knows about her strike. And now that she can't hid from it, she's going to do her best to lead by example, at least until Jake enters the picture.
Jake is here on business. He finds things that others can't. So he's going to be helping Lizzie find the pieces for her art exhibit. But what he also finds is Lizzie herself. He's drawn to her but he doesn't do relationships. At all. But once Lizzie goes viral, he realizes that maybe, just maybe, he wants to punch the guys that are trying to get her to break her strike. But that doesn't mean anything, surely. Yeah, right ;)
This whole story was adorable. Both characters were just so much fun to read. Their hijinks and their battle of wits made me laugh out loud more than once. I also found this to be really sweet and emotional at times. This was my second book by Lila Monroe and I can safely say she's a sure bet.
