    Review by Trinette Dungee

    Karrie, a struggling female college student who wants to get revenge on her cheating ex. Ridge, a rich frat boy who has to make mommy happy. A meeting of the minds on how they can each help each other. Typical storyline, but what makes this story different? The chemistry between the two.
    Naturally, Karrie is leery about Ridge’s offer to help her. She can see what she gets out of their arrangement; but she can’t see what he’s getting out of it. As the two grow closer, Kar

    When I read the blurb for this book I was a little hesitant to request it because I had the feeling that Ridge was going to be a complete manwhore and sleep with other women. Still, I decided to request the book because Bethany Lopez is the author and I love her. She is on my auto-read list. At some point, I got a little worried that he would sleep with someone else, but from what I read, he didn't.

    I loved that the girls knew from the beginning about the makeover and there wasn't any drama on t

    Um, well this was an unexpected one day read for me. I don't think I put it down for a single second from the moment I started.

    I love a good college romance and boy did this deliver in the most fun way. It was perfectly balanced with the easy conversations, the simplicity of every situation with the complexity of emotions in between.

    Ridge and Kerrie meet at a great party, the ease in which they are around each other ends up helping them to help one another. With Ridge bringing up an offer to hel

    4.5 Stars!

    I read just about everything this author puts out. Although NA is not my jam, Karrie and Ridge came together with a pretty mature outlook on life. Those that read the Three Sister's Catering series will love this crossover. Yes! These are the previously unknown baby brothers. It's time for them to get their HEA, right!

    Great banter and chemistry with Karrie and Ridge. Eyes wide open through the whole fraternity gimmick. Of course friendship soon leads to more and then BAM! Hearts are in

    Extremely well written with great characters. I thought Ridge was an awesome idiot for not talking his situation over but he did have a really bad start to his weekend.
    I think I'm going to like Wes in his book as well.

    A tit for tat agreement, what could possibly go wrong? Pesky things like feelings maybe...

    What a wonderful read! Ridge became so much more than I expected him to be. I loved how Karrie grounded him - Philly sandwich anyone?! Karrie may have lost herself for a bit after a bad breakup but Ridge helps her get back to herself. What starts out as a simple agreement turns into more than expected. Will they become more or will they stick to the plan? You're going to love the banter between these charac
    At the end of a rough week for me personally I was lucky to have this gem of a romance land in my lap and I was instantly captivated by the immensely appealing characters and the slow-burn romance of the main couple. Revenge may be the reason these two got together at first but it’s a deeper connection that forms that has love flourishing in a romance that put a smile on my face. From the first page to the last readers will find themselves equally enthralled by the fake relationship that becomes ...more

    This is a steamy, funny, heartbreaking, and heartwarming story. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down! I highly recommend this book for any romance reader. Bethany Lopez wrote a definite hit with this one!

    This was absolutely adorable. Fun, sweet, and only with a teeny bit of drama. It’s refreshing to read a book where drama doesn’t happen just for drama.

    A fake relationship between a rich frat boy and a not-so-rich girl looking for revenge? Yes please!

    Karrie is a sassy heroine who’s happy just the way she is and doesn’t really care what anyone else thinks. She’s still burned over the breakup with her ex four months ago.

    Ridge is a rich frat boy, kind of a big deal on campus, and he’s looking to ward off his mom’s attempts at setting him up with someone he’s not interested in.

    These two meet at a frat party, banter ensues, and they see a perfect

    This was a good book and made me think about falling in love when I was young. Karrie is a sweet, loving girl who was crushed when her boyfriend of a year broke up with her at college. She has a great roommate that looks out for her. When her roommate talks her in to going to a Delta party she meets a hot guy named Ridge. The two’s upbringing couldn’t be more different, but the two plot together for a united cause. It was fun watching the two get to really know each other. I loved that they fou ...more

    When I think of Frat guys, I think they are going to be total douche bags with no respect. But Ridge wasn't completely like that. He had a wall up around him and for good reasons to. There was a character who was an a** but he didn't over take the story. Which I loved that he got put into his place.

    A ruse at a the Delta frat house will bring together Ridge and Karrie. They made a pact to help one another but fate has other things in store for them. I loved how Karrie stayed true to herself and

    Frat House Confessions: Ridge by Bethany Lopez is the first book in her new series, Frat House Confessions. This is a fake relationship story with a bit of revenge and a whole lot of chemistry. Karrie is looking for revenge and Ridge needs to get his mom off his back. They agree they can help each other and leave it at that. But as they spend time together, things may not be as fake as both thought.

    Karrie’s last relationship ended badly and that is putting it mildly. But she is okay with who sh

    Holy smokes, I loved this book. Rich frat boy (who has a whole different side to him that’s unexpected) + quiet athlete (who is also sexy and sassy and is unexpected in her own right) = one steamy, swoony, complex story. Ridge and Karrie start out by faking a relationship for various benefits, but it quickly morphs into something more than just pretending to be boyfriend and girlfriend. It’s messy, it’s complicated...but it’s also adorable, and hot, and so much deeper than I was expecting. I can ...more

    What a fun, quick read!! This book had everything I’m looking for. It was fun, sexy and sweet with just a touch of drama that wasn’t over blown. Ridge was such a good guy from the get go. I love that Karrie wasn’t your typical book girl of either super hot or a dopey quiet doormat. She was a softball player with curves and muscle who didn’t give a damn if she had on sweats and her hair in a messy bun.

    YAY! Such a fun book. Love the premise of taking the rough rock and making it shine! Throw in some fun Frat House parties and you have the perfect book. Such a great story behind all of the fun, falling in love when you do not even realize it! Facing your past and making the decision to not let it mess with your future, grabbing the bull by the horns and professing your feelings! Cannot wait for more from the Frat House!

    Wonderful Start to a New Series

    OMG I love Ridge and Karrie!

    Seriously, this might be my new favorite Bethany Lopez book. Solid writing, good pace, wonderful characters, relatable drama and an overall delightful read.

    Highly recommend.

    Here's to partners in crime!

    College frat house lift anyone? This story starts off in pledge week, a Sargent at Arms needing to keep his position and his mom off his back and a scholarship athlete trying to make her ex jealous. What better way that supporting the pledge makeover routine? They just have a deal, right? No feelings! And now a bit about the story...

    Ridge cannot stand Crush, or his crazy pledge missions, but he decides to play along when he sees Karrie at Delta. Karrie's boyfriend bro

    I totally heart Ridge and Karrie. They balance each other and build each other up.

    This story has a little bit of a twist on the fake relationship trope and I loved it.

    I think one of my favorite parts is how Ridge ends up thinking outside of the box when it comes to Karrie.

    What started out as a pact turns into something amazing. Let me say Ridge's swoon factor hit 10 plus.

    Frat House Confessions: Ridge by Bethany Lopez is the first book I’ve read by the author and a completely enjoyable fast read. This story includes a fake relationship between a rich frat boy who has it all… and a down-to-earth girl looking for revenge against her douche of an ex. As their fake relationship progresses, sparks ignite between the pair and before you know it the tension between the pair is very real… as is the feelings that consume them. It’s a fast read, that is light on angst and ...more

    Ok first of all I have to apologized to Ms. Lopez because I didn’t realize she wrote Three Sisters Catering Trilogy. I read them awhile back and loved them. So once I read this book everything clicked back into place. This is the story of Ridge and Karrie . They make a pact with each other, killing two birds with one stone. Karrie’s douche of a boyfriend dumped her, out of the blue, and left her as a empty shell. She didn’t dress up any more, she just didn’t care. She promise to herself

    I received a free ARC of this book and am writing my honest opinion.

    Ridge makes Karrie an offer she can't refuse but soon their fake romance becomes more real. Honestly, I did not like Ridge at first, but in Ms. Lopez's capable hands he became a character that I fell in love with. By sharing his history while helping Karrie, Ridge became a flawed hero instead of a complete jerk. Karrie allowed Ridge to show his true self with no judgement; Ridge helped Karrie remember her true worth. Together, t

    For some reason the song Can’t Help Falling in Love With You pops into my head when I think of this book. Ridge and Karrie start out in a fun way. Trying to get someone off one of their backs and the other to make an ex jealous. Little did they know what would happen. This book has a down but overall it is more light-hearted. I got why we get a breakup, even if I hated it. Lol

    So I went into this book with thinking before reading and after a few pages that Ridge will be an a$$ and arrogance will be pouring off him so I would hate him.
    I couldn't be more mistaken.
    I got a relationship with two very broken people. Each of them was looking for something else in their life but maybe together they can find this one thing that will be a new beginning for them?
    This book is a relationship of convenience type. It has its typical things like talking about rules and getting to kno

She finds out her ex was a jerk who had frequented the Delta house quite a bit with different girls, when Ridge puts out a proposition for her, she accepts it. She & Ridge set out on a journey, one to make her ex jealous, but can they keep their feelings in the deal, or will they fall for one another?
