    "This is novel about a woman who is very into risk management. Things get a bit out of hand in the book. From some comments it seems like it has a slow start but turns into something very interesting. I think I will order it."

    "Minerva Dobbs knows all about risk management, which is why it’s such a shock when David, her extremely logical choice for a boyfriend, dumps her three weeks before her perfect sister’s wedding: David was not supposed to be a wild card. So when Min overhears David make a bet with his old nemesis—the gorgeous and successful Calvin Morrisey—that Cal can’t get Min into bed in a month, she decides that fate has just handed her a stacked deck: she can make Cal sweat his sex appeal and get a date to the wedding, if she plays along and doesn’t fold. What follows is a novel of destiny, chaos theory, Krispy Kreme donuts, the spirit of Elvis, Chicken Marsala, and a gamble for the highest stake of all: true love."

    "Gambling mixed with love. Too much sex for me. Well written, but about situations that are boring to me."

    "Janet Evanovich is one of my favorite authors and I was looking for other similar books. I finally found "Bet Me." The writing style is very similar and the subject matter is sort of related. I think it's a worthwhile book to read and every Janet Evanovich fan should at least give it a try!"

    "Bet me was a really fun ride that kept me guessing until the end. One of Evanovich's best books!"

    "Finally! A delightful departure from the recent onslaught of vampire-firemen-CIA agent-werewolf-billionaire non-sense, this romance is sweet, fun, sexy, and definitely a page turner for romance fans. I haven't read a romance this good since Karen Marie Moning was flying off the shelves! Thank you, Jennifer Crusie, for not buying into the modern pseudo-romance scribble available in most book stores."

    "If you enjoy romances it will be worth your time to check this one out. I like that the main character is more of an everyday person. It is an enjoyable read. "

    "This is probably the best contemporary romance novel ever written. It's funny in the right places, poignant in others. Just excellent all around."

    "Curl up with Crusie, and become a convert! I've lived her writing for 13 years (half my lifetime) and they are seriously good comfort reads, I re-read them every year. For reference, other authors I like: Susan Anderson, Kresley Cole, Melanie Harlow. Her characters are incredibly relatable, and I can't get enough of her fast-paced storylines and humour-filled conversations. "Bet Me" in particular really deconstructs a classic fairytale; with a lending hand from fate, it draws Cal and Min together in deliciously enjoyable scenes, despite their best efforts at completely avoiding each other. Crusie creates characters you want to have lunch with, and you won't find "cheap laughs" as she has fine tuned her story telling to an art (probably helps with her master’s degree in Professional Writing and Women’s Literature!)."

    "A very specific topic at hand, but I am very confident this is definitely worth reading if you want something in between relative to the topic. I would say the positive reviews are greatly helpful to read since a hundred of those basically can be considered trusted, I have not read this one yet, but that won't be the case anymore."

    "Bet me ain't your mommy's food themed romance book, that's for sure. I loved it. Just make sure daddy's not around, if you know what I mean. He'll probably want to take a peek. Don't let him! Do not let daddy read this. I can't stress that enough. Daddy needs to stay away. This book is too horny for daddy. It's for mommy to read in the bathtub! Mmmmm . . . makes me hungry!"

    "This author has written a romance novel that is extremely relatable to. The main character, Minerva, is shown to be a strong and independent woman with a lot of wit and charisma. This novel walks through a series of dramatic events that are also filled with dramatic humor. "

    "This story is more soap opera than funny and witty, although it has its sharp moments. The theme of love, the games people play to get it, and your own hopes for the characters take over the main story line."

    "Jennifer has such a way with words and a great knowledge about the relationships between men and women. In Bet Me, I really got a sense of her characters. They were developed enough for me to be able to relate to. Her writing is witty and fast-paced, yet filled with humor. I couldn't put this book down! I finished it in one setting. Once I was done, I called me sister and since then, it has been passed around our families and friends. It really is such a delight to read about romance in a time of fate and coincidence. "

    "I have always been a huge believer of fate and I do think things happen (Or don't in same cases) for a reason. That being said, I do feel a story like this, while done many different times, still holds strong and is able to typically maintain my attention!"
  • Jorge Esparza

    "If there is a romance novel I'd like to read, Bet Me is a bout as close as it gets. It tells the story of lost love, reunited. There were funny bits and a couple sad bits, the tone of the books is overall positive and an entertaining way to spend your time."

    "In Bet Me the main character finds her life completely turned upside down when her relationship falls apart suddenly. She is left without a date to her sister's wedding and is determined to do what she can to find one and show up her ex. "
