New Release + Review: I Bet You By Ilsa Madden-Mills


She’s the one bet I can’t resist…

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.

I Bet You, an all-new sexy college romance standalone is LIVE!


Sexy Athlete: I bet you…

Penelope Graham: Burn in hell, quarterback.

The late night text is random but Penelope knows 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 nerdy 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 secret mean everyone loses at this game of love?

Penelope isn’t like the girls Ryker Voss is used to. He is Waylon University’s star quarterback and a notorious player, on and off the field. She’s a cute, nerdy redhead who’s more interested in sparkly undead boys than live jocks like Ryker. She’s also the girl who wrote a scathing exposé involving Ryker and a fighting ring. Still, whenever she’s around him she can’t seem to fight to pull towards him. Ryker has never had trouble with getting the girl. Any girl. So when a bet is made that he can’t get Penelope Graham before homecoming. Never one to back down from a bet, Ryker accepts. But when the begins to hurt the sweet girl he’s always noticed from afar all bets are off.

Gah this story was all the things! I love, love, LOVE sport romance stories and this one hit just the spot! Amazing characters, fanfreakingtastic chemistry, enough steam to turn my living room into a sauna, and just enough angst to have me flipping through the pages at a furious pace. I adored Penelope and I wanted to bang Ryker like a dinner bell until everyone came. (Sorry not sorry!) Ilsa Madden-Mills gave me everything I wanted in a great sports-romance novel with I Bet You. This is a total must read. 5 Stars.
