    Sweet and Easy Romance

    Safe Bet is a sweet romance featuring characters from The One Week Girlfriend and The Rules series. It is told from the points of views of both main characters, Wade and Sydney. Although readers will enjoy this story more if they've read the previous books/series, Safe Bet can be read as a stand alone. I really liked both Sydney and Wade. They each have made mistakes in the past, but are working towards becoming better versions of themselves. They didn't make excuses for their past behavior, but rather owned up to it, accepted it, and had/were moving on. Yes, there was a bit of instalove between them, but it was more plausible since the attraction was already there prior to the fake relationship plan. They also had great chemistry throughout the book. I did find Sydney a little too whiny, immature, and needy at times, but that shows what a great job the author did in writing her. When we first meet Sydney, her posh and pampered life has been turned upside down and she's struggling to figure out how to survive. She's 19 and facing the world on her own for the first time. Wade is on the opposite life experiences spectrum, having struggled more financially growing up and essentially being raised by his mother and best friend's older sister, Fable. I'm not usually a fan of the man whore hero, but it's clear that Wade, now 22, has grown up and matured a lot. His relationship with his mother and acknowledgement of the huge role she played in making him the man he has become didn't hurt either. ;) I appreciated that there was no unnecessary drama or angst between Wade and Sydney and that the questions they had and struggled with were valid concerns considering how their relationship began. I wanted to see more about their relationship though and wish the epilogue had given us a further glimpse into the future. I also really enjoyed getting an update on Drew and Fable, as well as many of the other characters introduced throughout the series. If you're looking for a sweet and easy romance, Safe Bet is the perfect choice! *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Amazing

    Simply amazing!! Fans of Monica Murphy will absolutely love this perfect blend of the One Week Girlfriend and The Rules series. Not only do we get more of Drew and Fable but we get to see bad boy Wade Knox taken to his knees. You can easily read this without having read the prior books and never miss a beat. When the media mistakenly turns a simple gesture of help into Drew Callahan and his nanny Sydney Walker having an affair Drew and Fable come up with a crazy plan to take the spotlight off drew. That plan has Sydney spending a lot of time with Wade Knox. Letting the public and media think they have a real relationship. Crazy right?? Not as crazy as things are about to get! Don't miss this one! I highly recommend it.

    This is a great one!!!

    I love contemporary romance and Monica Murphy writes some of the best. This is The Rules series book 4 and it features Wade Knox, which some may remember from the One Week Girlfriend series and Sydney Walker, which some will recognize her brother Gabe from The Rules series. We also see A LOT of Drew and Fable in this book. I absolutely love reading a book and interacting with characters from previous books. Sydney and Wade are great together. I love it when the guy is just as into the girl as she is into him and I'm not talking about for the sex alone. This book has a great story line and fantastic, well developed characters. Sexy football players around every corner at Drew and Fable's house. I can't wait to see what this author comes out with next!

    Winning Bet For Me!!!

    Safe Bet by Monica Murphy.....OMG, this book was a winning bet for me, it is sweet, sexy, drama, hot NFL players, friendships and great characters. Wade and Sydney are so perfect together you will be pulling for these two, you feel like they are your friends. Drew and Fable are married with kids and looking for a nanny and Sydney is looking for a job. Wade is a new players on the football team that Drew is the Quarterback for and they are friends, so now you know how Wade and Sydney met. You will want to read this book, so you find out what happens. Monica Murphy is one of my favorite authors, she writes her sex scenes beautiful, always so tasteful, she is amazing. I voluntarily reviewed an advance readers copy of this book.

    Fun, flirty, sexy romance

    Thank you Monica Murphy! This is a great mix of two wonderful series that she has given us. I found Monica Murphy through Drew and Fable (one of my all-time favorite couples) and to get more time in their lives while experiencing Wade and Sydney’s journey was just fabulous to me. Wade has always been there supporting his best friend Owen but we didn’t really know much about him. I loved getting to know him as he moves into adulthood. Sydney is wonderful, she makes some bad choices, getting disowned by her parents which means she needs a job. The opportunity to be a nanny for Drew and Fable lands her in Wade’s orbit. When the paparazzi dub her the naughty nanny, Fable hatches a plan to have Wade and Sydney fake a relationship. But is it really fake? This is fun, flirty and sexy romance.
