Peek Inside The Boyfriend Bet

Zoe Cain knows that Grant Evertide, her brother’s number-one nemesis, is way out of her league. So naturally, she kisses him.  She’s thrilled when they start dating, non-exclusively, but Zoe’s brother claims Grant is trying to make her his “Ringer,” an oh-so-charming tradition where a popular guy dates a non-popular girl until he hooks up with her, then dumps her. Zoe threatens to neuter Grant with hedge clippers if he's lying, but Grant swears he isn’t trying to trick her. Still, that doesn’t mean Grant is the commitment type—even if winning a bet is on the line.

Zoe Cain knows that Grant Evertide is way out of her league. So naturally, she kisses him. Out of spite. Not only is Grant her brother’s number-one nemesis, but he has zero interest in being tied down to one girl. She’s shocked—and secretly thrilled—when they start spending more time together. Non-exclusively, of course, but that doesn’t mean Zoe can’t change his mind, one PDA and after-school detention at a time.

This is second in a series, but it takes place in a different town; and characters from the first are only present in cameo. So you don't really need to read these in order if you don't want to.

Love the book. I thought it would be a cheesy book about a silly bet just like all those teen movies from the 90s. But it had strong characters and a few twists and turns. It was sweet and a quick read. Well written and enjoyable. A great book to read on a hot night.

The Boyfriend Bet, Chris Cannons second contemporary romance, is a light, airy, funny read. I read it over the course of two evenings, and it was such a nice break from the heavier YA paranormal I usually read.

Had my brother learned nothing in the last sixteen years? Apparently not, and for that he would pay. I turned back to the source of the brothers irritation. Grant, do you have a girlfriend who would mind if you kissed me to piss off my brother?
