Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills returns with an all-new swoon-fest of a novel about what happens when you look beyond labels and take a chance on love.

Sexy 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?


I Bet You is the second standalone installment in The Hook Up series by Ilsa Madden-Mills and oh my freaking goodness I think Ryker Voss and Penelope Graham knocked Maverick Monroe and Delaney Shaw (from I Dare You) down a peg in my heart. I absolutely found myself falling head over heels in love with these two and I couldn’t put their story down. The moment I picked this story up I knew that I wasn’t stopping until I reached the end because these two managed to wholeheartedly captivate me within the first few pages.

Penelope Graham is the kind of girl that we can all relate to and I have a MAJOR girl crush on her. She is a strong and independent woman, but at the same time she is super shy. Ryker is the kind of guy she needs because he gets her to step outside of her shell and she blossoms right before our eyes. Although they started off on the wrong foot, their chemistry is instant even if she keeps denying it.

Ryker Voss. OH HOT DAMN! My heart is swooning in overdrive and I am absolutely in LOVE with him. I really liked his character in I Dare You and I was super excited when I found out that this was going to be his story. He is a sexy football player and golden boy whose reputation was tarnished thanks to an article written by non other than Penelope.

Penelope and Ryker’s sexual tension and sizzling chemistry was OFF THE CHARTS and readers will absolutely love their story from start to finish. Oh and of course don’t forget those secondary characters…I seriously cannot freaking wait for the next book in this series!
