Release Tour+Review: Safe Bet by Monica Murphy (Rules, #4)

Here is a little bit about Safe Bet
Add on [goodreads]
Out NOW!!!!!

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.)

Maybe I ought to have read the first three books of the Rules series and maybe I ought to have read the other series One Week Girlfriend before I read this one but I didn't feel like I missed much to follow this book.

I really liked Sydney Walker. Even if she described herself before as a spoiled girl who just got everything she ever wanted before her dad cut her off, it's hard to see that when you read this book. She is trying to prove herself throughout the book while taking on a job that she has no qualification for. Being a nanny might not have been what she dreamed of, but she made the best of it and. She is determined to make it everything right and prove to her parents she can actually do something right.

Wade Knox is a nice guy. End of the story. I loved him from the beginning. He doesn't go for drama, he doesn't act like a manwhore and he is just really dedicated to his football career. It was a nice change to read about a guy like him. He loves his mother more than anything and everything he does, he does for her even if they don't see each other often, you can tell how much she means to him.

I liked that their relationship wasn’t suddenly spontaneous. Yes, there were chemistry between them, but they didn’t dive in right away; I felt like they took their time; got to know each other. With the fake relationship created by Fable to try to take some heat off of the rumoured affair, the two of them spent a few days together and spent most of it just getting to know one another. If neither of them is looking for a relationship as they both deal with other priorities, neither can deny there is something between them.

Overall, this was a quick read that I enjoyed very much. I’m looking forward to read the beginning of both series and get to know more in depth the story of the other characters.

I was giving an advanced copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
