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!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Title: Bet Me
Author: Lila Monroe
In 40 Days and 40 Nights with Josh Harnett (the movie), I saw, through a man’s perspective what celibacy meant to them, especially when he meets that special girl that gets his blood pumping in ways that he never thought possible. But then again, he was in it for a bet with that special prize money at the end and masturbating wasn’t an option either (at least, that’s what I remember). In Lila Monroe’s Bet Me, we finally have the female version of a dating and s£x strike. So why not Lizzie have her own obstacles in the shape, form and face of Jake, the man that is a total player and the one man she wants but can’t have.
I laughed, cried (just a small mixture of tears of laughter and tears of exasperation) and then fell in love with these two characters as they tried to figure out what they really wanted from one another. It’s the type of story that you can absolutely see yourself do: how many times have I told myself that if things go in the dumps with a current boyfriend that i’d completely swear off men!?! Too many too count and each time there’s that one person that makes me rethink my last words and start all over again. Bet Me is the kind of book that will thrill you from start to finish and for my first book that i’ve read by Lila Monroe, I absolutely enjoyed it and can’t wait to read more from her!
