Safe Bet by Monica Murphy #Live #Review

joys-novel-thoughtsThis book was high on the sweetness and low on the angst. I was hooked from the beginning. The chapters were short and kept my intrigued throughout the book.

Wade and Sydney were so cute together, they frustrated me at times because they were both unsure of what the other wanted… too much like real life lol.

Although I laughed and swooned and fell in love with all of the characters, I found the ending lacking. I needed more. I don’t always need high stakes drama, but something. I just felt like the story ended before it was really over.

That said the attraction between these two was magnetic and undeniable and it was fun watching them turn something fake into something real.

This book can be read as a standalone even though this is a mashup of two different series

Sydney Walker’s new job is perfect. As
the live-in nanny to the most famous quarterback in the NFL and his beautiful
wife, she couldn’t have it any better. Their kids are adorable. Her bosses are
more than generous. Plus, there are hot football players at the house all the
time. Life can’t get much better than this.
Until her life turns into an absolute
nightmare. The media is abuzz with rumors that she and her boss Drew Callahan
are having a torrid affair. Everyone knows the truth—except the public. So Drew’s
wife Fable comes up with the perfect idea.
She creates a fake relationship between
Sydney and one of the rookie players on Drew’s team. Wade Knox is forever
indebted to Drew and Fable and readily agrees to the set up. Pretending to be
in a romantic relationship with the hot nanny for a week—how hard can it be?
Crazy how it only takes one week for two
people to fall head over heels in love…
(This mash-up new adult romance features
characters from both the One Week Girlfriend series and The Rules series.)
