The Wager by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Char Lynn has been burned more than once by childhood crush Jake Titus. One night together in a drunken bout of sex, Jake left without a word, instead he left a note. Who does that? Well Char has not forgotten and when she sees him on the plane heading for her best friend’s wedding, she plans to make up for all the insecurities and hurt she lived with since that day.
Jake knows he did wrong, but he has enough problems without the hot tempered blonde making it worse. His Grandmother has decided she needs to ruin him and he is trying to think of a way to get rid of her, but Char seems to have found an ally with his Grandmother and now he is trying to figure out how to deal with it. Of course neither Jake or Char realize they are both players in her scheme and if they don’t play along, they may miss the best thing in life, each other.
Hilarious, charming, and a perfect addition to a wonderful series. If you read the first book The Bet, you will remember Jake and his womanizing ways. His Grandmother, who is a hoot, decides to fix him and the lengths she goes makes for a frolicking, gut busting ride. Char is feisty and has no problem telling Jake off, however when Jake begins to realize his feelings for Char he has a hard time proving how much she means to him. Excellent read.
