Genre: Romantic Comedy
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!

Everything about Bet Me made me happy – I loved this book. This hilarious romance is definitely a must read!!
Lizzie was quite the female lead. Her life seemed to be filed with one mishap after another – especially with the men in her life. She’s got an ex who essentially used her and her evenings are filled with horrible blind dates or poor Tinder matches. Plus her boss has paired her with Jake for her dream assignment – a man who turned out to be the hot one night stand that ended with more of a whimper than a bang. Lizzie just cannot catch a break.
All together it leads to one inevitable realization about her life. Lizzie cannot escape the hell that is her love life because she just keeps making the same mistakes.
When it all becomes too much, she decides – via video messenger to her sister – no more quickie hook-ups and pledges to demand more for herself. But thanks to her drunken sloppiness, the video and pledge gets shared with the world. Suddenly everyone, including strangers on the street, is trying to be her prince and to be the one who gets her to bed. It quickly becomes chaotic and Lizzie has no clue what the hell she’s doing.
Her strike almost becomes bigger than her and that is overwhelming. However, the one constant though it all is Jake and their odd little sexually charged friendship. And as a reader, I got it. Their chemistry and connection is electric – I felt it as I read and because of that I found myself looking forward to their interactions and flirting. They left me feeling breathless and swoony. But more than anything, I really just liked them as characters so I desperately wanted them to find their happily ever after.
Time and time again, if it could go wrong for poor Lizzie it did but she keeps trying to get it right with Jake. They share this passionate and complicated relationship and so even when it was going all wrong – as a reader, you’re still smiling thanks to their quick wit and banter. It’s truly awesome.
Basically, Lila Monroe gives readers some truly fabulous rom com story telling in this book. So my suggestion is that you didn’t miss this crazy romantic adventure – Bet Me is a great book and a top recommendation from me. It will make you happy.
