“Am I a bet? Am I a fucking bet?” is not a quote from this book, of course, but the line from the iconic 90s movie She’s All That was playing on repeat in my head as I read this book. I’m going to keep this review as spoiler free as possible, but rest assured the leading man of this book, Sam, makes his bet for much more noble reasons that Freddie Prinze Jr’s Zack.
Sam is a player with a heart of gold. He’s never committed to a woman before, but actually seems to like and respect them. He’s the perfect book boyfriend for so many reasons (talent, charisma, and good looks is just the tip of the iceberg with this one). Val would love to commit to a man, but would have to over come her insecurities and find one first. She is very relatable with her insecurities about her curvy figure, just as most women have struggled with body issues and self acceptance. Sam begins to help tutor her to make her more comfortable with all things man related- flirting, dating, kissing (and more?).
I loved the relationship between the two and the sparks between them were seriously h-o-t. The book is over all fun and flirty, its a great example of what a romantic comedy should be. It’s a quick read due to the fun nature you’ll just want to keep reading to keep the (dance) party going. You get to see your old favorites in the Red Lipstick Coalition (first seen in Staci’s book Piece of Work) including Rin and Court. I loved this book! 5/5 stars.

He’s a player.
He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.
Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?
I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.
But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.
There’s so much I don’t know.
Like the fact that I’m only a bet.
But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.
And I’m the fool who fell in love with him.
