The Wager (The Bet #2)-Rachel Van Dyken

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, THE BET


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 . . .

Rachel Van Dyken is a genius pure and simple, her writing is fantastic. You are pulled into each of Rachel’s books and taken on a journey you never want to stop.

I cannot remember the last time I laughed out loud tears streaming down my face, family looking at me like I have lost my mind at a book.
The wager is amazing and grandma Nadine stole the show for me, her character is larger than life and she has her eyes set on the other Titus brother, the man whore himself, Jake Titus.

The way grandma goes about setting Jake up with her choice of partner for him is great. She is cunning and has lady balls, she is totally unstoppable when she sets her mind to a plan.
The whole plane scene had me unable to read because I couldn’t see through tears of laughter!

Jake and Char are wonderful characters and they really bounce off each other to keep things interesting. The list that grandma has them working through awesome!!!

There are just not enough stars in the sky to show how fantastic this book is, everyone should read this series, it’s funny romantic and damn right good!!!
Rachel your awesome.x
