[REVIEW] “I Bet You” By: Ilsa Madden-Mills


Now an Amazon Top Six Bestseller: #1 Contemporary Romance, #1 New Adult Romance, #1 Sports Romance

Sexy Athlete: I bet you . . .
Penelope Graham: Burn in hell, quarterback.

The late night text is random but Penelope figures out exactly who “Sexy Athlete” is. And why she shouldn’t take his wager.

Ryker Voss.
Football star.
Walks on water and God’s gift to women.
Just ask him.

His crazy bet? He promises Penelope he’ll win her the heart of the guy she’s been crushing on. His plan—good old-fashioned jealousy. Once her crush sees her kissing Ryker, he’ll realize what he’s missing. Sounds legit, right? The only question is . . . why is Ryker being so nice to her?

Penelope Graham.
Lover of sparkly vampires and calculus.
His mortal enemy.

Penelope knows she shouldn’t trust a cocky jock, but what’s a girl to do when she needs help getting a date? And Ryker’s keeping a secret, another bet, one that will destroy Penelope’s heart forever.

Will the quarterback score the good girl or will his secrets mean everyone loses this game of love?

Rating: 4/5 Stars


“I Bet You” is the companion novel to “I Dare You,” and takes place in the characters senior year of college, which is the school year after the events of “I Dare You.”

We first met Ryker in “I Dare You,” as he was Maverick’s roommate. He’s the pretty, popular quarterback at Waylon University, contrasting Penelope who is a pretty, smart, romance writer. Ryker helps Penelope in her quest to date Connor, the boy who seems to be the perfect match for her. Of course, we know that Ryker’s really the best match for her, which the characters don’t figure out until later.

The book is told from two points of view, Penelope’s and Ryker’s, although there are more chapters from Penelope’s point of view. Penelope’s character is very relatable to readers; after all, she is an avid reader and writer herself, but her intellect isn’t seen as something to be ashamed of or hidden, which is nice.

Overall, this was a sweet read, and I was excited to see some characters from “I Dare You” make appearances. I’d recommend this book for ages 17+ for some sexual content, and would strongly recommend reading “I Dare You” first!
