Sexy AthleteI bet you . . .
Penelope GrahamBurn 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?


I seem to be really into the whole sports romance thing lately. This will be my fifth in a row!

This starts with Penelope writing romances involving herself and various other students she finds attractive in her journal as she takes a break from her job at the on campus diner, only to be interrupted by her nemesis and super jock, Ryker. They continually wind each other up but Ryker can't help but be fascinated and drawn to the nerdy girl, and she can't help but write him into her romances.

I read I Hate You (Charm & Blaze's story) a while ago and this seems to take place around the same time as the events of that one so it's been a little strange that they aren't a couple yet... It's hard to figure out the right order since they aren't actually listed as a series.

Everything seemed so familiar with this book, almost like I'd read it before - maybe it's because of the above issue. I did like it though. The nerdy but rebel girl and the jock. It was cute in the end and I loved how they finally got together, it was slow and steady.

I really didn't like Archer. He wasn't a nice guy, too obsessed with getting Captain of the football team and crushing whoever got in his way. He eventually got what he deserved.

I'm still standing by my words from the review of I Hate You and would love to read Dillon's story, I Promise You.
