Review - Pay Up by Kaily Hart

Tag: Neighbor. Friend. Lover.


At least that’s what Carly Wagner wanted Rio Reyes to be. She’d settled for two out of three for almost a year and it just wasn’t enough. Not anymore. When Rio proposes a bet—of the sexual variety—she knows it’s out of character and he’s not really serious, yet she can’t resist. The payoff could mean finally getting her hands on the gorgeous firefighter she’s drooled over since she moved in next door.

The timing had never seemed right for him and Carly, but that hadn’t stopped Rio from imagining wild and wicked things about her. It had been a joke—sort of—but Rio’s shocked when she takes him up on the dumbass bet. Now he’s in a world of hurt, because regardless of who wins, he might be crossing a line he never thought he would, and jeopardizing a friendship that means more to him than anything.


Carly Wagner has had a secret crush on her neighbor and close friend Rio Reyes since they first met in the elevator while she was moving in. Now after a year of wondering, she's free. Rio attraction for Carly has only grown stronger over time, no matter how many other women he's taken to his bed to try and forget about his sexy off limits neighbor. Now all bets are off, or should I say on, when Carly's boyfriend ditches her Rio proposes a wager, but is he risking her friendship?

I absolutely loved Pay Up! Carly and Rio met at a point in life when neither were free to act on their attraction or admit to the other they had it in the first place. The strength of their friendship is only heightened when taken to the next level. Ms. Hart doesn't just write compelling characters, she pulls you into their world.

  1. Brynna, thanks so much for taking the time to review PAY UP. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Rio was a little different to the alpha males I usually write. He's still alpha and very much a guy, but he had some smoother edges. Thank you for the wonderful comments on the book.
