4 SWEET CROWNS
Monica Murphy has crafted a sweet and romantic story that is sure to please lovers of The One Week Girlfriend series and The Rules series.
Wade and Sydney have such a fun and genuine romance. There is really no other way to define it. Thrown into a relationship together to benefit the people they care about, they cannot resist falling for each other, and even though it is fast, it comes across as authentic as they spend time getting to know one another. Part of the reason their relationship is enjoyable is because of the characters. Wade, who is from The One Week Girlfriend series, is compassionate and kind, fiercely protective of the people he loves. He is also willing to put himself on the line and confess his feelings without playing games. Sydney, who readers will have already met in The Rules series, has lost her way a little but, but she is 19, so that is to be expected. What I did love about her is that for a 19 year old, she has determination to survive on her own and to stand on her own two feet. Although shy at times, Syd does not hesitate to share her feelings with Wade when he opens up to her. These two completely complement each other, and watching them fall in love was a delightful.
The story mainly centers around The One Week Girlfriend crew. Sydney has gone to work for Drew and Fable, and the hero of the story, Wade is also from the series. There are cameos from The Rules series, but they are less involved in the story. Whether you have read these series or not, Monica Murphy provides the reader with enough information to understand this story on its own. That being said, Safe Bet takes readers on a journey of taking a chance on love, on taking advantage of doors that are open to you, and of working hard and valuing what you earn from it. Their fast paced romance will warm your heart, while adding a tiny bit of spice.
I love when authors bring two worlds together, because not only do I get to see characters I love, but I also get to meet new characters as well. With Safe Bet, Monica Murphy has created a fantastic mashup, and readers will eat up this sweet romance.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
Sydney Walker’s new job is perfect. As
the live-in nanny to the most famous quarterback in the NFL and his beautiful
wife, she couldn’t have it any better. Their kids are adorable. Her bosses are
more than generous. Plus, there are hot football players at the house all the
time. Life can’t get much better than this.
Until her life turns into an absolute
nightmare. The media is abuzz with rumors that she and her boss Drew Callahan
are having a torrid affair. Everyone knows the truth—except the public. So Drew’s
wife Fable comes up with the perfect idea.
She creates a fake relationship between
Sydney and one of the rookie players on Drew’s team. Wade Knox is forever
indebted to Drew and Fable and readily agrees to the set up. Pretending to be
in a romantic relationship with the hot nanny for a week—how hard can it be?
Crazy how it only takes one week for two
people to fall head over heels in love…
(This mash-up new adult romance features
characters from both the One Week Girlfriend series and The Rules series.)
