Rock star. Guitar God. Star of those sexy online videos.
And I hate him.
And I hate him.
My stepdad left five million dollars up for grabs when he died, and my student loan debt means I must come out the winner. Even if it means playing dirty with Bret, who's been making my life miserable since we were kids.
Ninety days. Five million dollars. One thing standing in my way—a wickedly hot attraction to my sworn enemy.
Bret Starling, you've met your match.
Animal lover. Almost doctor. The one who always did the right thing.
And she's the only woman on earth I can't have.
She thinks she can take the inheritance money and run, but now she’s knocking at my door. I know if I open it, there’s no turning back.
I can’t change how I feel. We’re going to crash and burn, so I say screw it. Live fast and die pretty.
But maybe we can make it something more than that.
Gemma Starling, you have no idea who you’re playing with.
Note from Kristen: Wager is a two-book box set of The Inheritance series. It includes Dirty Little Secret and Exposed.

I understood why perfectly sane females turned into putty in his presence. Bret Starling was going to be the death of me.
He took half a step closer. He knew he had me. “You say you’ve got the real deal going on under there? I want to see them.”
“And you’re pretty hot when you’re disgusted.” He grinned. “Show me yours, and I’ll show you mine.”
I rolled my eyes. “I’ve seen your nipples a thousand times.” All I could think about was sucking on those silver rings. Damn it. There was no winning this argument.
“That’s not what I’m talking about.” He looked down, his tongue playing with the inside of his bottom lip. Electricity danced in his eyes like a heartbeat.
“I’ve seen that, too. You’ve got your shit all over the internet.” I scoffed, calling his bluff. It was the perfect chance to own up to watching those videos and keep the ball in my court. “Shouldn’t you leak a sex tape if you want to get famous and make money? Isn’t that how it’s done? You don’t make any money on Tumblr, dumbass.”
Bret stepped even closer to me. “What did you think?” he asked, his voice husky.
This close to him, I could hardly breathe. He looked down at me, lips parted, waiting for my answer. He managed to completely unravel me without actually doing anything. Besides pissing me off. “I couldn’t stop watching you,” I whispered.
And there went my lady balls, rolling away from me, along with my self-control and any shred of decency. Right into the gutter, where they belonged.
He leaned in, and I tried to prepare myself mentally for the kiss. This was insane. What was about to happen would change everything.
About Kristen Strassel:
Kristen Strassel is far cooler than she’ll make herself sound in this bio. The prolific author of many paranormal and contemporary books, she enjoys spending time with the voices in her head—nudging the characters toward those bad decisions and seeing if she can get them a happily ever after. When she’s not writing, she’s often still in the land of make-believe—doing makeup for film and television. And when she’s not doing any of that, she enjoys making her house look like a Pinterest board, watching football, and road trips to the middle of nowhere. Kristen doesn’t have any kids, but she does have a very opinionated cockatiel.
