Review for The Wager by Rachel Van Dyken

5 Stars!!!!!
What is it about a junior-high crush that can send an otherwise intelligent woman into a tailspin? TV reporter Char Lynn wishes she knew. Jake Titus is too rich, too handsome, too arrogant: a trifecta that once lured Char into the best night-and worst morning-after-of her life. Now they've been thrown together in a wedding party. It's awkward, but survivable . . . until Jake stops acting like a jerk, and starts acting like the man she'd always hoped he could be.

If watching your brother marry your best friend is weird, being attracted to your best friend's other best friend is downright bizarre. Unfortunately for Jake, Char hasn't forgotten how he once tossed her aside. Worse still, Jake's already-nutty grandma is even crazier about Char. Cue meet-cute shenanigans and all manner of meddling, and somehow, Jake's falling. For Char. Now all he has to do is make her believe it . . .
My review
I am head over heels in love with Char, Jake, and Grandma. Rachel Van Dyken out did herself with non-stop romance, steam, and wit. While reading this book I was giggling like a school girl with bright red cheeks the whole entire time. I was truly laughing out loud.
Char is a cutie television professional who has been in love with Jake since Junior High Camp. She is determined to not fall deeper for Jake Titus. She still has a sour taste in her mouth from the last time their path crossed, but sometimes fate and karma doesn’t ask what we want and does what it does best…
Jake Titus a hot multi-billion dollar playboy who gets what he wants when he wants and never has to work for it. He once had a thing for Char when they were kids then suddenly they were no longer friends. They crossed paths and that interaction was bittersweet, depending on who’s opinion you get. Jake is trying hard to not fall for Char, and doesn’t want to hurt her because he knows he will never be that guy.
Grandma is eccentric, adorable and, full of wit and has a million and one shenanigans up her sleeve. She loves meddling in the lives of the people she loves. It is always for the best! I love Grandmas spunkiness.  Everyone that comes into her life either wants to murder her, or is too scared to say otherwise, and goes along with whatever Grandma wants.
This story is full of romance and lets you remember that if you want something bad enough you will fight for it no matter what!! Love is worth fighting for and if it meant to be then come hell or high water it will be.
