The Wager by Rachel Van Dyken


4 stars****

I thought I had reviewed this already... oops! Better late than never...
Every now and then you just need something light and fluffy to fill up an afternoon. And, this book hit the spot! And, I am a huge fan of meddling grandmas so this book already had a head start in the likability department. Grannies make for excellent comedy relief!
Grandma Nadine decides to pair Char and Jake together to do wedding chores for the couple to be. The crazy tasks that she has them doing bring them closer together. It's always nice watching a couple find their way to each other. And if it is done with a bit of romantic humor then that's a win-win situation for me.
Funny, romantic, well written with entertaining characters... yep, I liked it... :)

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 . . .
