    ➳When an instant attraction takes place, there will be no denying that Penelope and Ryker are meant to be in a quirky, charismatic, and burning with passion romance novel that yet again, Ilsa has conquered in every way... ➳I know the kind of ability I have when it comes down to reading books in a fast pace, but never did I think I would ever encounter upon the day of when I would read a book in A DAY! My gosh am I shocked as you are, because ...

I cling to him as we wrap our arms around each other, and for the first time since my mom passed, it feels like everything really does have meaning. A purpose. There really is fate. There really is emotion that transcends sorrow and sadness, those pains merely preparing you to accept the sweetness in life. Love.I BET YOU is another s...

    I could NOT put this book down. It’s funny. It’s fun. It’s sweet. It’s sexy. It’s a page turner. It’s light new adult college sports romance at its absolute best. The banter is EVERYTHING. The relationship between the mains is EVERYTHING! The side characters are just intriguing and interesting enough without taking over the whole story. The trope is not new, but Madden-Mills somehow writes in a way that makes it feel original and fres...

    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 ...

    I Bet You is the second book in the Hook Up series, but it can be read as a standalone. What a fantastic addition to the series! I loved how this book started and I kept loving it until the end. Real life has been very busy lately, but I couldn’t wait to continue reading this book and I did read every minute I could. I Bet You was a sweet, funny, unique and a little emotional romance. I adored the epilogue! This book is one of my favorite books...

    Oh this is a fun one. The title alone tells you it’ll be interesting. What’s a bet, right?? A harmless fun bet to a bunch of football players might be a devastating life changing one for others. I enjoyed Penelope. She was that innocent yet strong girl. She knew what she wanted, saw where her future laid, and she tried to stay true to her feelings. Enter Ryker. Ryker the college team quarterback. The most popular boy on campus, heck in the na...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKOn the outside, Ryker Voss is the typical college football star, which is exactly what Penelope thinks and why she would rather avoid him. But there's more him than just a cocky grin, and he's determined to make her see that. Even if it means torturing himself with an entire movie about sparkly vampires. I really liked his character and enjoyed getting to see those endearing moments where he wasn't as confident and w...

    DNF at 28%.When do I learn? No more college kids crap, or god forbid, anything younger than that! It's like 28% of high-school/ college immaturity. Been there, done that, don't want a repeat in my adult fantasy time, thanks!

    From the very first book I read by Ilsa Madden-Mills I knew this author was super talented and would fast become one of my all time favourite authors. Her book captivated me and I couldn’t put it down and since then each new release has gotten better and better and now there’s this one, I Bet You. I’m so damn amazed at this book. I thought I Dare You (Book One in the series) was incredible but this one just shot right past every book and in...

    "I'm more of who I should be with you, and I promise you, I will never let you down like that again." He cups my face, his gaze intense. "You...are...everything." OMG OMG OMG! Be still my heart! I just finished the most AMAZING book that I cannot stop thinking about and messaging everyone that I know is reading it right now. I am left with a serious book hangover and I am staking my claim as Ryker being my book boyfriend (back off ladies! ;)) Ils...

    Gosh I love how this author writes sports romance. It's always smart, it's always funny and it's always HOT!!! I Bet You is the next standalone from one of my favourite one click authors & I definitely recommend. QB1 Ryker Voss + a bet = big trouble for Virgin Penelope Graham. One of my favourite things about this author is that she gives us heroines who know their mind, they may be shy or they may even be virgins but they're not easy pushovers. ...

    Okay….your going to see the 3 stars and think I didn’t like the book. That is not the case.Penelope and Ryker have a college romance. She is a book worm, he is the star quarterback. His friends bet him that he can’t get her on a date. He loses. Then he decides he wants to help Penelope get the guy she has a crush on. Of course Ryker gets jealous when he sees her with this guy and makes a plan to win her for himself.Overall the book was okay...

    Sweet and sexy college football romances like I Bet You is why I love New Adult Books. The nerdy romance book loving heroine and the hot jock should not work together but they DO! The perfect blend of humor and swoon made this one enjoyable read.The dynamics of Penelope's and Ryker's relationship were quite interesting. They start off as sort of enemies but then Ryker, as a peace offering, tries to help Penelope get a date with another guy she ha...

I'm so freaking happy after finishing this cute, laugh-out-loud, swoontastic story. OMFG you guys, it was so damn good. Ryker and Penelope seriously became one of my favorite couples. I Bet You is everything I want and crave in a sports romance. Ryker Voss, oh how I love thee, let me count the ways! O...

    Ryker is a star football player and the pain in Penelope’s side. However they have great banter, and as time went on I totally swooned over him. No one can say that man isn’t star book-boyfriend material. Even the girl who really wants to deny him...poor Penelope, she has this sweet nature and quick wit but I bet you she doesn’t stand a chance. 😉

    I have been in the worst book slump and this book CURED it. I love EVERYTHING about this book Penelope is....... freaking amazeballs. I love her quirk and her sass and her strength and take no sh** attitude. Ryker is so not what I was expecting, he comes across all cocky A hole who runs the world, but really he's this sweet alpha with a heart of gold and foot in mouth syndrome. Not enough stars to give this book for its level of absolute PERFECTI...

    I freaking loved this book. Ilsa is perfection with her college sports romance but this one...let's just say I am a baby Llama fan! lol Full review to follow..College romances are one of my favorite tropes to read...add sports and BAM, even better but if you go a little further and include a quirky, nerdy type girl that has sass AND the author is Ilsa Madden Mills well let's just say you have a 5 star read for me. Ms. Madden Mills has a knack for...

    ➳ Rate: +5/ 5 starsIlsa kept up her theme so far in this series - super hot and not so jerk jock and super nerdy and peculiar heroine - and there is nothing not to love about it. Once again she wrote a super fun and cute story set in the college sports world. There is almost nothing I love more than that combo. When it comes to her characters they are always so funny with just the right amount of angst in their lives. This time, the bearer of a...

    I was so looking forward to this one! It took a while for Amazon to release them and now I understand why! I never want to let them go!I loved their texts I'm a swooner for the texts and mails in some.Ryker is so adorable and totally not what you expect! Penelope has my soft spot she has auburn hair! Is a tid bit nerdy and so fun!!Their journey was a bit predictable, but it didn't make me enjoy it less.It was a fun and exciting journey!

    I really enjoyed the concept of this story. Ok, It is not a completely new trope, but it is one that I enjoy and is hugely popular. This is still a really enjoyable story that puts its own stamp on the trope.Penelope is the ‘nerdy’ girl that lost Ryker a bet. The bet was that he could get her to date him and she was not interested.I am stealing a quote from the book /excerpt as it sums up Penelope’s initial opinion of Ryker wonderfully.‘G...

    I wasn't much impressed with book 1 I dare youbut I was pleasantly surprised by this one, thoughRyker Voss is Mr. Golden Boy Quarterback of Waylon University and if you are NOT into college romances, then well don't go into it...BUT somehow this turned out ot be not your USUAL college stereotype romance...sure, the very blurb doesn't give you any hint that it wouldn't be your typical romance you are used to...sure, there's a BET involved, and s...

    Recommendation appeared on USA Today’s Happy Ever After on October 30, 2018.If you’re a fan of football romance, you’ll absolutely adore I Bet You. It’s a low-angst, highly entertaining love story between the university’s star quarterback and the quirky girl-next-door, and I couldn’t stop quietly laughing and smiling at Ryker’s flirtatious and playful pursuit of Penelope. He beguiled and disarmed her while proving he wasn’t the ty...

    I Bet You was the cute and happy, easy-breezy story I needed after subjecting myself to angstville over the weekend. I can't say that I loved it as much as I Dare You but I did indeed really enjoy it. Ryker and Penelope are perfect examples of why it's best not to judge a book by it's cover and how wonderful it is to take the time to delve into someone's layers and find out that you are kindred. Ryker's willingness to put himself out there over a...
