Indulge in this "laugh-out-loud" (Jill Shalvis) #1 New York Times bestseller about two childhood enemies who--decades later--discover that there is a fine line between love and hate. "I have a proposition for you." Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus's mouth. It's been years since Kacey's seen her childhood friend Jake, but the minute Jake mentions his ill grandmother, Kacey is ready to do anything for the sweet old woman. And if that means pretending they're engaged for her sake, so be it. But Kacey wasn't counting on Jake's older brother Travis still being there. She calls him "Satan" for a reason: she's never forgotten the way he teased and taunted her. Yet when they meet again, Travis's gorgeous smile is a direct hit to her heart . . . and Kacey's more confused than ever. As the days pass, only one thing starts to become alarmingly clear -- she never should have accepted Jake's deal.… (lisätietoja)

I could have easily finished this in one sitting. I was super entertained throughout. The hate-to-love-you trope is done flawlessly. The banter was awesome. It made me laugh quite a few times. And I found a new book boyfriend. It was a fun book but also super heart-warming as well. ( )

✧Breakdown of Rating✧

●Plot: 1/5 It could have had potential, but it was too juvenile to ever really go anywhere. The timeline's were really hard to follow.
●Characters: 0.5/5
●Book Cover: 4/5
●The Feels: 0/5 ugh…don't get me started.
●Sex Factor: Who Cares…
●Narration: At first I was blaming the narrator for how bad this book was, but eventually I realized it wasn't her fault and she was doing the best she could with what she had to work with.
●Ending: It doesn't really matter… Cliffhanger: No

Will I continue the series: No, not even…

My Thoughts :

The only reason I finished this was because I was waiting on different book that I had on hold at the library to listen too. Otherwise, I would have stopped at about 25% in, because it was so lame, it was slowly killing me, and making me lose faith in the audiobook experience itself. ( )

We chose The Bet for the book club I get together with once a month. I've been getting together with them for more then 10 years so picking a book for us all to read it's always easy. Since we've been together for so long you'd think we know each others taste and it would be easy.

No such luck!

Part of the problem is that we never want to start a series in the middle, (and there are so many series) and I refuse to read first person (they don't all like it either so this is easy for us) plus, none or most of us aren't into the new adult.

So when I saw the quote on the front of the book by and author I like I thought to myself...you should buy this. I looked at the back and it sound cute. Book in hand I walked out of the store. Don't worry, I paid first.

That month at book club when we were looking for something to read next I pulled out The Bet and another book that I bought at the same time. We all liked how both sounded and picked The Bet to read first.

Like I said above, this sounded like a fun, small town type of story. The ones I really like. And one of the big things I liked about the book was the print. My tired old eyes and no problem reading it. Thanks Grand Central Publishing!!!

I quickly realized after I started it that this was going to be a interesting meeting. I knew for a fact that the ladies that showed up, we usually have five but that month only 4, none were going to like it.

And I was right.

I want to say that I didn't think it was totally terrible but I can't. Now let me explain. I think the main reason I didn't like it was because of how immature I found everyone. This book read more like it was new adult, then straight small-town romance. I don't know how I missed that when I was checking out this book.

But I did. I think...

I'm still not totally clear on that. Anyway. I have to say it wasn't a hit but it did make for a lively meeting. Everyone had so much to say.

Now, because I'm not a huge fan of new adult I wouldn't put any stock into what I say if you are. BUT...if you don't care for new adult then you might want to think twice about this one.

It was unrealistic but so sweet and funny. ( )

Awwwwww. That was what went through my head when I finished this book. Just...awwwwww! So cute!

This was sweet and easy and fun. So much fun. The family dynamics in the Titus family were awesome. The banter, the playfulness, the love. All so wonderful. I want Grandma for myself!

I just love Travis as well. He built his whole life around the girl next door that he has always been in love with. Without ever knowing if she would really ever be his. The love he has for her is swoon worthy for sure.

Now Jake. Jake is a dog. Plain and simple. However, somewhere in there I bet he is a decent guy that just needs the right woman to put him in his place. Maybe we will see more of Jake in the future? PLEASE???

All in all, I just loved all the smiles this book brought to my face. It's happiness between the covers! ( )
