REVIEW – SAFE BET (The Rules #4) by Monica Murphy



Sydney Walker’s new job is perfect. As the live-in nanny to the most famous quarterback in the NFL and his beautiful wife, she couldn’t have it any better. Their kids are adorable. Her bosses are more than generous. Plus, there are hot football players at the house all the time. Life can’t get much better than this.

Until her life turns into an absolute nightmare. The media is abuzz with rumors that she and her boss Drew Callahan are having a torrid affair. Everyone knows the truth—except the public. So Drew’s wife Fable comes up with the perfect idea.

She creates a fake relationship between Sydney and one of the rookie players on Drew’s team. Wade Knox is forever indebted to Drew and Fable and readily agrees to the set up. Pretending to be in a romantic relationship with the hot nanny for a week—how hard can it be?

Crazy how it only takes one week for two people to fall head over heels in love…

(This mash-up new adult romance features characters from both the One Week Girlfriend series and The Rules series.)

Sweet and sassy story. Safe Bet reunites all of our favorite characters from previous books, creating a love fest that all of us fans of this series will highly enjoy.


Wade Knox’s lifelong dream of playing professional football for the 49ers has become a reality as he was recently drafted by the team. He is completely focused on working hard to cement his place on the team.

Sydney Walker is a rich girl who’s recently been cut off by her parents, after getting caught in a big lie. Her brother in an effort to help her has recommended her to Drew and Fable Callahan for the position of nanny that they are currently seeking. After a nerve-racking interview, Sydney landed the job. Wade is close to the Callahan’s because his best friend is Fable’s brother, and now Drew is his team mate so he is always hanging out at their house, and that is how he meets Sydney.

The media has made up a story that Sydney is a Naughty Nanny having an affair with her boss, Drew. To help a situation that is quickly spinning out of control, Fable came up with the idea of Wade and Sydney to start pretend dating, so the media will switch the focus on them, instead of the lies that are going around.

What starts as a fake relationship will become something much deeper, but are Sydney and Wade ready to accept love in their lives?

Read this story and find out if fake can become real for a second time again in the lives of our beloved characters…
