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”

★ Rachel's Review ★
Getting asked to read and review by a "new to me author" is sometimes intimidating. When I'm not used to their writing style or don't know what to expect, I just hope it's decent enough for me to review. Because really, anymore, it's a crap-shoot.
But this book BLEW ME AWAY!!! The witty banter, the connection between the two characters, the story, the humor... all of it was just amazing.
I loved it so much that I went directly to Amazon and bought book one and book two in the series. I devoured both books in just a few short days because they are just as good.
Seriously, if you're in a book slump or just looking for something new to read, Bet Me Something, is SO the book for you. This author just became an immediate one-click for me and I'll read whatever she puts out from here on.
★ Lori's Review ★
You guys! This book was SO GOOD!! Aubrey Bondurant’s fabulous storytelling sucked me in from the very beginning and had me turning page after page, thoroughly enjoying every minute. Her writing style is one I highly enjoy and I couldn’t help but greedily devour this story.
This RomCom has the perfect blend of sass & heart and is loaded with plenty of humor that made me laugh out loud. Bet Me Something is book #3 in the Something series, but can be read as a stand-alone. But, trust me, if you read this one first, you will want to dive into books 1 & 2 – just like I did.
The author did a great job at creating interesting & lovable characters that captured my heart and made me fall in love. The witty banter between Kenz & Colby was absolutely charming and had me smiling from ear to ear for most of the book. These two are perfect together. Their chemistry is so natural, so intoxicating, and so very HOT. The steamy scenes were filled with passion, increased my heart rate, and I’m pretty sure I had to fan myself a time or two.
Ms. Bondurant is a new-to-me author and I am absolutely in love with her and her writing. I’m going to keep her. She is on my radar and I cannot wait to read her next story in the series! I messaged her to let her know just that…and kindly asked her to write faster. I said please…I hope that helps. ;)
This story is super fun & sexy and I’ll be telling everyone I know to read this!
As a former member of the military, she's passionate about veteran charities and giving back to the community.
Her writing style is a combination of chick lit and erotic romance or "smutty chick lit" as she calls it. The "Something Series" will consist of 5 books. The first one, Tell Me Something came out in June 2015. The second book, Ask Me Something will be out in November 2015.
