Being able to stand on your own two feet, sometimes requires getting knocked off them completely…
McKenzie “Kenzie” Lane is newly graduated from college and looking forward to a dream internship she has lined up for the summer in LA. Unfortunately, her controlling mother has other plans.
Colby Singer, with his hot-as-sin looks and wicked charm, is never without attention from the ladies. Despite suspecting how Kenzie feels about him, he’s always kept her comfortably off-limits since she’s the baby sister of one of his best friends. But when he’s determined to distract her temporarily from the stress of her mother’s ultimatum, deciding to show her some fun, he quickly finds that keeping her in the friend zone is not as easy as he’d hoped.
Once Kenzie realizes this may be her last opportunity to gauge her long-time crush’s true feelings, she puts it all out there in the form of a bet. It’s the perfect idea for her perfect man.
Until he isn’t.
Will a dose of reality lead to true love? Or will it crash and burn before it can even get started?

The Something Series is addicting and the latest release Bet Me Something only goes to prove that once again.
Kenzie has been lucky, she’s always had her older brother, his best friend, and his best friend’s brothers looking out for her. Only downside, they all considered her their little sister, and yet she’d been in love with Colby since she was a little kid. He was off-limits so she settled for the next best thing, being his friend. She kept all her other feeling for him locked away. That is until she has the opportunity to get what she’s always wanted…all she has to do is win a bet.
Colby has always thought of Kenzie as a little sister and best friend, but somewhere along the way those feelings became a lot less little sister and a little more scary. She was off-limits, her brother would kill him, hell his brothers would kill him too, but when she wins a bet that will make the lines between them a lot more gray he’ll have to decide if she’s worth facing their murderous brothers.
They each have reasons to be scared, but sometimes love is worth risking it all.
The chemistry between Kenzie and Colby was refreshing and fun with a side of hot. The pages are filled with humor, friendships, and family. The friendships and family ties will be pushed and tested, but they’re no contest for stubborn hearts. The part I enjoyed most is that no matter how serious the situation when a little humor is added in it not only lightens the mood, but it warms the heart.
“Nothing happened between us last night, Kenz. I held your hair when you puked and put you to bed. Your brother Brian would’ve done the same.”
“Really? Because I don’t thing he would’ve climbed into bed with me, stripped down to his boxers, to spend the night.”
A vein on the side of Colby’s face throbbed. “Nothing happened,” he reiterated.
I grinned. “Well, I’d be greatly disappointed if something had, and I woke up without being the least bit sore.”
My Favorite Laughable Moment: When Kenzie finally gets to collect on the bet she’d won only to realize her imagination was way better than the real thing. What’s even funnier is Colby’s reaction to her response.
I can honestly say I’ve never read a moment like that. Props to Aubrey Bondurant for veering left when I bet everyone assumed she’d go right.
