The Wager by Rachel Van Dyken | Book Review

The Wager by Rachel Van Dyken 

Reading Group: Anyone who has read The Bet

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: Lose a bet, lose your heart...

What is it about a junior-high crush that can send an otherwise intelligent woman into a tailspin? TV reporter Char Lynn wishes she knew. Jake Titus is too rich, too handsome, too arrogant: a trifecta that once lured Char into the best night-and worst morning-after-of her life. Now they've been thrown together in a wedding party. It's awkward, but survivable . . . until Jake stops acting like a jerk, and starts acting like the man she'd always hoped he could be.

If watching your brother marry your best friend is weird, being attracted to your best friend's other best friend is downright bizarre. Unfortunately for Jake, Char hasn't forgotten how he once tossed her aside. Worse still, Jake's already-nutty grandma is even crazier about Char. Cue meet-cute shenanigans and all manner of meddling, and somehow, Jake's falling. For Char. Now all he has to do is make her believe it .
. .

Cover: The cover of this book is similar to the cover of The Bet so it's easy to tell they are a part of a series.

My Review: I still cannot get over how funny these books are.  Grandma Nadine is just always causing trouble and her family is so used to it that the only way they respond is to make some type of joke about it.  Or even when they're not joking, but just so fed up with everything it's still wicked funny how they react.  Honestly, the humor in this series is what makes it so fantastic.  
Again, the storyline is nothing super special but I loved it.  Jake Titus is the rich, bad boy who's afraid of commitment until his middle school crush comes back into his life.  Eventually, he does a complete 180 and becomes someone who only has eyes for Char.  Char has been in love with Jake since she met him when they were seven, but after they slept together and he left before she woke up the next morning, Char writes him off and tries to forget everything about him.  However, when Grandma goes up against Kacey and Travis in a wager whether or not Jake and Char would get together.  Grandma literally has them get married without knowing what was happening.  Obviously, all works out in the end, which is great in my opinion.  If you ask me, read the book for the humor, but stay for the storyline.
