Ryker Voss is MINE!!!!

Gah! Not only is his name the stuff of legends, so is he! This is why I call Ilsa Madden-Mills the Queen of New Adult romance!! All the swoons!!

It’s not often I love a genuinely sweet hero, but it happens. Ryker and Penelope are super cute. I’m not certain if I should classify this as enemies to lovers or friends to lovers because they’re both.

Here’s what I loved:

Penelope is quirky and a bit of a mess. But she’s also self aware and brave. She has no problem putting Ryker or any of the football gods in their place. I loved her personality.
Ryker is so flipping sweet. He’s such a great guy. I love that he can’t seem to figure out how to act with her. It’s quite entertaining to witness these two figure out what’s truly going on between them.

It’s a realistic take on romance at this age. Quirky, sexy, and fun!

I BET YOU - Ilsa Madden-Mills - Cover RevealSexy Athlete: I bet you…
Penelope Graham: Burn in hell, quarterback.

The 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 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 jock, but what’s a girl to do when she needs a date to Homecoming? And Ryker’s keeping a secret, another bet, one that could destroy Penelope’s heart forever.

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

*Author’s Note: This is a standalone sports romance with an HEA.

**You do not have to have read I Dare You, although you should if you love jocks and nerdy heroines. 🙂
