I don't know what to say. Don't get me wrong, it was good and I think the story really has potential. I enjoyed Mel and Ryan's character. I enjoyed reading their story but not as much as I enjoyed the first book. There are times I felt that Ryan and Mel didn't have any chemistry. As if the author just forced them to be together just for the sake of giving Mel her own happy ending after helping Roman and Lily to have theirs.

And what I really don't like was the fact that there's no direct confessi

I really liked this book it was very interesting and entertaining. It is cute and witty and a fun read. The storyline was easy to follow and the characters flowed well together.

Mel is a saucy little thing, "no thanks. I'm a real piece of work. You'd be wasting your time with me. Why don't you go back to your little fan club? I'm sure they'd appreciate your company more than I do." A drunk Mel is a really fun, naughty Mel, "God, Mel, you're a little firecracker," he said. I didn't respond, instead running one hand down his chest and down the ridged muscles of his abs. I heard him suck in a breath as I reached down between us further and ran my hand over the hard bulge ...more

there was little to no romance in this book. He didn't send flowers, candy, small gifts that would make her think of him when she looked at them, it was dull in that sense, there was not wooing or conversation that showed he was interested. There were a lot of gaps you needed to fill in and parts of this seemed to drag on and not much going on during different parts of the book. It was a cute story but it needed to have more content and romance. To bad, I really enjoyed the first book in the ...more

Loved it!

This was a great second book for this series and I love the fact that each book can be a standalone. This book was about Mel and Ryan and let's just say I loved their story.

I didn't like this book. I liked the wager but there was something about this boom that just didn't capture my attention. I didn't really feel like Ryan and Mel had chemistry and it felt like it dragged.

Was I so melodramatic and prone to misunderstanding in my distant 20s? I hope not. Anyway, the story isn't terrible, but it's not all that original either.
