THE BET (Northwoods University 1)
By JL Beck & C Hallman
Release Date May 24
This is the first book of J.L Beck and Cassandra Hallman that I’ve read. The Bet is Book 1 in the Northwoods University series. It is a second chance, friends and enemies to lovers romance.
Remmy and Jules have such great chemistry together, even when he was hating her. There is such a fine line between love and hate between the two.
There is heartbreak, action, anger in this book but the love that comes is almost worth all of it. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to see there is only one other option left and that is up. The strength Jules possessed is admirable. The love Remmy gives is so swoon worthy. This is a quick and easy read. I highly recommend this new adult book as I look forward to the rest of the series.
I’ve imagined sex with him ever since I figured out what sex was in seventh-grade health ed class. But never, ever did I imagine anything like this. I always thought he would be my first, but I thought it would be sweet and gentle not this raw and confusing.
Remington’s hand palms my ass cheek, his touch surprisingly gentle as he slides his cock between my ass cheeks, up and down, up and down.
I can hear him inhale, and exhale. “Should I fuck your pussy or your ass?” I start to squirm again, wishing I could at least see his face, try to find the boy inside of him I once knew.
“Let me go…you’ve proven your point,” I croak
“No, I don’t think I have yet.” His hand travels from my ass cheeks around my body and down between my legs. His fingers are thick and my body is having a hard time separating the things he’s doing to it from the person he is now.
These are all things I wanted once upon a time, his hands on me, his lips on mine, and maybe part of me still wants them, but not with the man he is right now. I want the old him, the boy who held my hand, who smiled at me and wiped my tears away.
