Product Description

Being able to stand on your own two feet, sometimes requires getting knocked off them completely...

McKenzie “Kenzie” Lane is newly graduated from college and looking forward to a dream internship she has lined up for the summer in LA. Unfortunately, her controlling mother has other plans.

Colby Singer, with his hot-as-sin looks and wicked charm, is never without attention from the ladies. Despite suspecting how Kenzie feels about him, he’s always kept her comfortably off-limits since she’s the baby sister of one of his best friends. But when he’s determined to distract her temporarily from the stress of her mother’s ultimatum, deciding to show her some fun, he quickly finds that keeping her in the friend zone is not as easy as he’d hoped.

Once Kenzie realizes this may be her last opportunity to gauge her long-time crush’s true feelings, she puts it all out there in the form of a bet. It's the perfect idea for her perfect man.

Until he isn’t.

Will a dose of reality lead to true love? Or will it crash and burn before it can even get started?

Full Length Standalone book with no cliffhanger. Third book of the “Something Series”
Recommended for mature readers due to situations of language, and sexual content.

“Being able to stand on your own two feet, sometimes requires getting knocked off them completely”…….
Bet Me Something is the third book in the Something series by Aubrey Bondurant. I really have fallen in love with this series; Ms. Bondurant keeps setting the bar higher with each consecutive book and nails it every time. This book is the best of the bunch so far, and that’s really saying something considering how much I have loved them all. I began reading and was immediately captivated by the story- reading it in one sitting, because I couldn’t put it down. It is a contemporary, erotic, romantic comedy.
McKenzie Lane (Kenzie) thought she had her life mapped out, at least for the foreseeable future. Having just graduated from college, she’s really excited to begin work the following week. Kenzie was the one applicant chosen from thousands for this internship and considers it a once-in-a-life-time opportunity. But instead, her controlling mother has other ideas and is bulldozing all Kenzie’s dreams. She has spent the past four years attending college in LA to get away from her mother, but also to be close to the guy she has been crushing on since the day she laid eyes on him, sixteen years earlier.
Colby Singer owns a successful movie production company in LA, he is very sexy and charming- popular with the ladies, he has a reputation as a ‘Player’. He and Kenzie have been friends for years, he’s always liked her- but because of their nine year age difference and the fact that she is his best friend’s sister, he has her relegated to the ‘friend zone’.
After Kenzie’s mother dropped the ‘bomb’, Colby was determined to get Kenzie’s mind off the stressful situation by taking her away for some fun.

Yep, I know I was a fan of Aubrey Bondurant before this book but after Bet Me Something she has well and truly cemented her place as one of my favorite author’s. Her combination of great characters, great writing, romance, insanely sexy moments and angst draws me into her stories and doesn’t let me forget them in a hurry.

Kenzie has had a crush on her life-long neighbour and friend of her older brother since she was little. There was always something about Colby that drew her in and as much as she didn’t want, the man that she compared every other too. It was this crush that led her away from home for college. But on the worst night of her life – the one where she finds out that her mother has overruled her plans, Colby comes to the rescue and whisks her away from a weekend of fun.

As much as she had fantasised about Colby finally noticing her and taking the leap of faith into a relationship with her, what she didn’t expect was the effect that she would have on him.
Colby knows that Kenzie is the forbidden fruit that he cannot take a bite of without serious consequences. Her older brother knows all about his reputation with women and would not be pleased if he took advantage of Kenzie…but one fun weekend away threatens to snap his control.

Kenzie decides that she needs to take control by proposing a simple bet. The prize? A kiss from the man that she has lusted over for years. But nothing is quite that simple. Can the notorious playboy finally be tamed by someone that has been right under his nose the whole time?

Aubrey Bondurant has well and truly hit her stride with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Years in the making.... 17 July 2016
By Kelly G. - Published on Amazon.com

McKenzie was in love with Colby all her life. Colby was a play boy. I love that we were able to get a small glimpse into what these two were up to before they were together. Yeah, you can read this as a stand alone without reading the 2 before. But had I not already read them before, I would have wanted to after reading this. The characters are all wonderful. And the writing is so great that I feel emotionally attached to them as if they were in my own circle of friends. And I do love when my friends get their HEA. I am very much looking forward to reading more about this group of people.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 STARS! A fantastic addition to this amazing series! 5 July 2016
By Danielle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
“My mother was my kryptonite. Literally draining my strength with her very presence and killing my decision making powers.”

McKenzie Lane is home in Virginia having just graduated college attending the graduation party that she didn’t want thrown by her overbearing, controlling, steamrolling mother. Her post-graduation plan is to stay in LA to pursue a career in music, continue her studies with a music-related degree, and she is very much looking forward to the internship opportunity of a lifetime that she has beat one thousand other applicants for with a well-known recording industry producer. Not to mention that LA also appeals to her because it’s far away from her mother, and well, it’s also where Colby Singer, her longtime friend and crush, lives. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that her mother is on board with her plans, as she drops a bomb on McKenzie that has the potential to totally upend her life.

“In taking him down off the pedestal I’d put him on many years ago, I oddly feel relieved.”

Colby Singer is a very successful movie industry producer, long-time friend of McKenzie and her brother, Brian. Colby is also a notorious for being a man-whoring, playboy. Or is he? McKenzie is a close friend, and it seems that he’s always right there for her, ready and willing to step in and save the day. Following a horrible accident, McKenzie is convalescing at Colby’s and a bet between them is what gets the tide turning from friends to lovers. For McKenzie, the payoff was supposed to be the culmination of many a childhood fantasy, only it doesn’t quite go as she had hoped or expected that it would.

“You aren’t a little girl with an infatuation anymore. You’re a woman with an attraction to a man who happens to be imperfect, just like the rest of us.”

Close quarters, an abundance of time spent together and a simmering attraction between them both all collide and send them hurtling down the relationship rabbit hole. The change from friends only to lovers between these two relationship rookies is definitely a work in progress, but they’re off to a great start slowly building upon a years-old, solid foundation of friendship. Their biggest concern is the dreaded reaction that a relationship between the two of them will garner from her older brother, Brian, and Colby’s older brother, Josh, given Colby’s reputation.

My voice broke. “We can work through this, but walking away right now would be a mistake.”
He swallowed hard, emotion clogging his voice. “The biggest one of my life. ...”

Weeks go by and they grow closer and fall into a comfortable routine, both inevitably falling harder and deeper in love with the other. But McKenzie is growing weary of the secret-keeping, while Colby is concerned about timing the relationship reveal properly. A slip up on a group engagement trip to Vegas solves that problem for them, though, and Colby’s worst fears are realized. Will Brian and Josh see him for the man he is now or will they be unable to see past the man he once was? Can Colby ever get past the embarrassment of his youthful indiscretions and allow himself to believe he’s worthy of McKenzie’s love or will he make the biggest mistake of his life by letting that guilt and shame over his past eclipse his future?

“…Colby has to get beyond his insecurities over his past, or it’ll never work. If he loved me enough, he’d be unapologetic about it, no matter what you thought. Although asking him be secure when I’m not isn’t exactly fair.”

Bet Me Something is the third book in Bondurant’s Something series, and I have loved each one. Bondurant bills her writing style as Adult Contemporary Erotic Romantic Comedy—or smutty chick lit—and those descriptions describe her work perfectly. She blends comedy and conflict effortlessly in this book, intertwining it amongst a very sexy romance. I can say unequivocally that the first kiss scene between McKenzie and Colby is in my top five favorite first kisses of all time – it was brilliant!! It’s those little surprise plot twists and turns that Bondurant casually tosses in to her stories that keep readers on their toes and turning the pages. As a fan of all of her works, I can say that I happily go into one of her books not knowing what to expect but confident that I’ll get exactly what I want.

“This right here is my center. The outside world tries to tilt us, or I accidentally do it, and being together puts us back where we need to be.”

Bondurant’s writing is on point, her characters are endearing and her creativity in spinning a friendship into a passionate love story is remarkable. Aubrey Bondurant is an author whose name should be on every romantic comedy fan’s TBR. I’m already anxiously awaiting the next book in this series, and I’m looking forward even to what will follow that. I absolutely adored Bet Me Something, and it gets 5 smooches from me.

“…losing a bet to you has always turned out to be the very best thing to happen to me.”

Knocked it out the park!

Aubrey Bondurant never disappoints and in this instance exceeded my expectations --which I have to tell you were already pretty high.

Kenzie is absolutely my best romance book character of all time. She is funny, flirty, sassy, spunky with a sarcastic mouth that will have you laughing out loud from the first to the last page. She's uninhibited and innocent and the combination is lethal. Colby honestly doesn't stand a chance.

I loved Colby, there were moments I wanted to whack-a-mole him but I got why he acted the way he did. And let me tell you, he knows about make up sex!

This book will keep you entertained from the first to the last page. I loved it. What the hell am I going to do with my life now?

5.0 out of 5 stars From friends to MORE! 14 July 2016
By Anne Spencer - Published on Amazon.com

If you have read the rest of the series you were given a brief glimpse into McKenzie and Colby. I love how this book took them from awkward teens to mature adults. Some people will tell you people will never change, but when you love something or someone there is always the possibility of the impossible. That was the case with her love McKenzie for Colby she never just saw him as a Playboy she saw him for the person he was. I admire Mckinzie from going from a people pleased to speaking her mind. Too much time is wastred worrying about what others think, you live your life for you!
Colby is a character that evolves through the whole book, I will not give any spoilers, but you will want to read this book just to follow his character.
I don't write very many reviews, I urge you not only to read this book, but also the whole series you won't be disappointed.

Having read books 1 and 2, I didn't think the books could get any better. But Bet Me Something was my favorite! I truly hope there is a book 4 about Catherine and I hope her somebody is Mark!! I just adore the writing. This book was fun, passionate, intense, and hilarious. I laughed and cried and loved every minute!
