Monica Murphy has done it again. She has scored the game winning touchdown at the Superbowl with this book. It was filled with desire, wit, scandal, and loyalty. It was hard not to fall in love with Sydney and Wade. Their relationship was a surprise setup that could not have been more perfect and fun to read about. Safe Bet will have you falling in love with these characters and I bet it won’t even take a week 😉

Sydney Walker was a privileged woman who took her parent’s money for granted. She always thought that she would be able to live a glamorous life thanks to mommy and daddy. Well, they had different plans. At only 19 years old her parents kicked her out of their house and a new beginning was going to happen whether she wanted it to or not. She was determined to prove to her parents that she could survive on her own and wasn’t the stuck up daughter they thought she was. With a little help from her brother, Sydney was able to find a job as a nanny. And she got to work with one of the nicest families. Not bad for a first job! She was exceeding her own expectations and doing great at her new job. One night made things a little more complicated. Now, she has to deal with starting a new life in the media. A rumor is spread that she is having an affair with her boss. We always hear “You can’t believe everything you read in the tabloids”, but it is not that simple. As if things could not get any worse, Fable comes up with a plan that will try and help lessen all the “Naughty Nanny” talk.

In comes Wade Know. He has just been drafted to the NIners and Drew Callahan takes him under his wings. He is a great football player, but continues to think that he isn’t going to stay on the team. He is dealing with being in a new place and trying to stay game ready. He meets Sydney, the new nanny, and there is an instant connection. The fire and passion between them is too HOT! Wade and Sydney are not the relationship type of people. Wade is always at the Callahan’s so it is impossible for him not to check out Sydney. He is happy admiring her from a distance. After the rumor of Drew and Sydney’s affair goes viral, a plan is set in motion. Wade and Sydney need to pretend to be a couple…for a week. One week won’t be that hard..right?

Wade and Sydney decide to go through with their new and public relationship. They get to know each other and realize that their attraction is more than physical. They miss each other when the other is gone and start opening up with each other. There are no secrets between them and it was so beautiful to read about their honesty. Sydney and Wade realize that they want more, but are they ready to admit it to one another?

Wade Knox and Sydney Walker went from acquaintances to friends and from friends to soul mates…all in ONE WEEK! Love is surprising and can’t always be explained. They probably didn’t understand how they could have such strong feelings in a short amount of time, but it sure was an extraordinary journey. Monica Murphy is one of my favorite authors because she writes with vigor and eloquence. Her characters are always so identifiable and complicated in the right ways that make readers love them even more. She always leaves you wanting more after every book and that is a hard thing to do. Eager to read more from Monica and you will too after reading Safe Bet.
