My Review:

4.5 Stars!!!

Gah!  This is the perfect mashup of two of Monica’s best-selling series, The Rules Series & her One Week Girlfriend series.  This book is near perfection!

Sydney Walker (Gabe Walker’s little sister) has a just scored her first job.  And she desperately needed it after her father cut her off completely.  Sydney is the brand new nanny/helper for Drew and Fable Callahan.  Yes, that Drew and Fable!  Things are great until the media suspects Drew of having an affair with the 19 year old nanny.  Suddenly, she is being badgered by the press and life is all kinds of crazy.  Enter Wade (well, he was there from the beginning, but that segue was perfect.  You’ll see).  Wade Knox just so happens to be Owen McGuire’s, Fable’s little brother, best friend and an honorary member of the Callahan clan.  He was just drafted to play for the 49ers, which is also Drew’s team.  So, Drew has taken him under his wing, so to speak.  When the story of the not-so-real relationship between Drew and Sydney comes out, the Callahans ask Wade to pose as Sydney’s fake boyfriend.  He agrees, not only because he owes Drew and Fable a lot, but also because Sydney is beautiful.

No one will top Drew and Fable for me as far as Murphy’s characters go, but Wade and Sydney are pretty great.  They have great chemistry, he is really sweet to her and while things moved along pretty quickly after they started the fake relationship, it didn’t diminished the feels that this book offers.

I was super excited for this book and I can honestly say, I was not disappointed in the least!

Safe Bet is a perfect mash up of two series full of beloved characters and the opportunity to get to know these two new characters.  Sweet, sexy and emotional, Safe Bet is well…a safe bet!
