By Neve Wilder
Franklin University Series, Book 4
Whose brilliant idea was it to build university housing next to one of Franklin U’s most notorious party frats?
I’m a real student—the kind who actually came to college to learn, not some dumb frat bro who sees Franklin U as a four-year challenge to consume the most booze and throw out the best pick-up line.
Their all-hours lifestyle is driving me crazy. Not to mention, the jerks keep taking my assigned parking spot.
But the worst offender might be Cory Ingram. Sure, he has a smile that could melt a polar ice cap, but no way will I ever be one of his minions. I’m pretty sure I made that clear when I blew my top at him. So I have no idea why he’s suddenly everywhere around me, turning on the charm like I might actually fall for it.
Nope. Not gonna happen.
From the first day I set foot on Franklin U’s campus, everything has been golden. I have a ton of friends, endless parties to be the life of, and whoever I want in my bed on any given night. Sure, I’m a shameless party boy, but I’m not a jerk. Ask anyone. Seriously.
Even the crotchety old groundskeeper waves and smiles at me when I pass.
Then there’s Spencer Crowe. I’ve never seen a guy’s face get so red over a parking spot. Even when I try to make it right, he proceeds to give me the tongue-lashing of a lifetime—which is about the moment I notice that, in addition to being irrationally irate, he’s also crazy hot.
My friends think I’ve finally met the one person I can’t seduce…
Bet you I can.
Damn, this dude is fired up. And while I hear the words coming out of his mouth, it’s the visuals that strike me. Dark brown hair swept back from his forehead in a way that catches the sunlight in threads of warm gold. His eyes are a crystalline blue and what I’d consider penetrating if they weren’t filled with so much fury that I’m convinced he’s trying to laser me to ash on the spot. And a mouth that, well, if it wasn’t currently spewing venom at me, would leave me curious about how it’d feel wrapped around my cock.
How have I not noticed this guy before?
Or have I?
Shit, have I slept with him?
Maybe that’s why he’s so pissed over a parking spot? Who the hell gets this butthurt over a parking spot without some background motivation? I mean, I’m always up-front with my hookups that I am in no way relationship material, but that doesn’t mean feelings don’t get hurt sometimes. Maybe this guy is a ghost from hookups past?
“Have I slept with you?” I blurt, interrupting him while he’s saying something again about a dumpster on Lee Street.
His jaw snaps shut, then opens again, bewilderment wrinkling his forehead. “What? Of course not,” he growls as if I’ve mortally offended him by the suggestion, which in turn kinda offends me.
Look, my body count is pretty high, but like I said, I’m always up-front with my partners, always get consent, and am dedicated to their pleasure as much as mine. I mean, Jesus, I once went down on a girl for two hours because she’d never had an orgasm from oral before, and it took us that long to figure out what combination of lips, tongue, and fingers was the winning ticket. But by god, we fucking found it. And then celebrated after with a two-hour nap before she blew me a kiss as she left. I never heard from her again, but I like to think she’s out and about these days tugging the roots of guys’ hair as they bring her to multiple orgasms.
God, he’s still going. I zero in on his mouth, the plump Cupid’s bow and the thinner lower lip—which gives him a stern look that’s really working for me. I shake my head, trying to focus on the words coming from those sexy lips.
“…not if you were the last man alive.”
Okay, so he’s gay. Or bi. I squint at him, still confused. “I’m sorry, but I need to ask again: Is this amount of aggression really warranted over a parking space?” When he purses his lips, I can’t help it—I have to fight back a grin. It’s just… he’s so fucking indignant. “Look, I’ve said I’m sorry about your space, and I’m moving the car now.”
“Which would only help me if I could time travel back to an hour ago to before you parked in the spot.”
“How about I drive you to your car?” I figure that’s a considerate offer and the best olive branch to offer that I can think of at the moment.
He blinks in surprise before his mouth pulls into another scowl. “No, thanks. I’ll walk.” He stalks past me and starts down the street.

Neve Wilder reads promiscuously, across multiple genres, but her favorite stories always contain an element of romance. Incidentally, this is also what she likes to write. Slow-burners with delicious tension? Yes. Whiplash-inducing page-turners, also yes. Down and dirty scorchers? Yes. And every flavor in between.
She believes David Bowie was the sexiest musician to ever live, and she’s always game to nerd out on anything from music to writing.
And finally, she believes that love conquers all. Except the heat index in July. Nothing can conquer that bastard.

[I received a digital arc for an honest review]
Bet You by Neve Wilder is the fourth book in the Franklin University universe. Cory Ingram has been living the college dream. He loves his fraternity and spending his time in sunny California on the ocean. Spencer Crowe is thrilled to be moving into the science house but that excitement is dulled by the sounds of frat parties late into the night and inconsiderate frat boys taking his parking space. He finally says enough is enough and confronts Cory, one of the main culprits. Spencer sees Cory as someone at the top of the world while Cory sees Spencer as a challenge to win over. Their battle turns into more leaving the two men to decide if their rivalry is nothing more than foreplay.
Spencer Crowe has a lot on his plate. He has been working extremely hard to stay at the top of his major while working and applying for an important internship. He has no time for people like Cory who never seem to have struggled in their life. He doesn’t expect to get to know Cory and even more like him. Cory sneaks past the walls he puts up and ends up helping Spencer realize there is more to the college experience than just school.
“Feels good,” he murmurs.
It does. The feeling of Spencer against me again, of his breath on my neck, of his whole body against mine, is perfect.
Cory Ingram has lived a fortunate life but with that comes expectations from his family. He loves California and is passionate about spending as much time on the ocean as he can before he is forced to return to NYC and take over for his parents’ advertising firm. Spencer disliking him is a challenge he’s never faced before and what starts out as a joke turns into more as he gets to know Spencer. He realizes that Spencer is way more than just an uptight science nerd. Cory shows his sensitive side by remembering the little details and making Spencer feel special through thoughtful acts.
His mere presence has become a full-frontal assault on my emotions and my dick, and I’m not sure I care to stop it anymore.
Spencer and Cory are fun additions to the Franklin University crew. They take a more unique approach to their “meet cute” by having their battle over the parking spot and elicit initial sexual encounters. Both characters are forced to reassess their initial misconceptions about each other and see that they could have missed out on something special.
4 stars for Spencer and Cory finding fun and happiness unexpectedly.
