I have a proposition for you..."

Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus's mouth. Instead, she made a deal with the devil in hopes of putting her past behind her once and for all.

Four days.
She could do four days!
But she wasn't counting on Jake’s older brother Travis being there to witness their farce of an engagement.
One thing is for certain.

One brother is right for her.

One wants a lifetime.

And one is in league with the devil.

She should have gotten Jake’s signature in blood.

No. No. No. Pure torture. Pure annoyance and irritatingly goody goody & childish.

There is no heat, no passion, no desire, no swearing, no lust, no fire.... nothing that would be considered sinful. It's a book you could read at your church picnic.

I bet you just looked at the cover again right? Yeah... deceiving. Actually it's nothing like the book. Firstly, there's no passion as the cover suggests. And more importantly, Kacey, who I assume is suppose to be the girl on the cover, actually has dark hair.... I'm going to go and guess that its Travis who is kissing the blonde version of Kacey... Now, well Travis is suppose to be blondish.... so the cover is so far off from the book it's pathetic. Whoever chose the cover / book combination didn't do their homework... Like. At. All! #refund

The characters where hollow. They were absolute freaks. They were 10 year old's disguised as adults. They could actually even be mentally challenged because nothing they said or did made any sense. If there had been a paragraph in the book about how they all gather around and smoke weed every Friday, I may have understood them better.... but no, according to the book they are normal. And that's crazy strange.

I'm all for fun banter and tricks up your sleeve. I'm not a prude. But when you put three seriously hot adults together then surely there needs to be some heat in there somewhere - there was none. There was not a single curse word, not a single r-rated moment - Nothing, Nada, None!

The Bet lacked personality, it has no grip to keep you hooked, the plot is nonexistent, the 'secret' is so pathetically boring.... It's simply lifeless fiction. I had a horrible, horrible time reading it. I wanted to poke my eyes out just to inject some emotions into my life while I read it. Oh God... I just really didn't like this book at all.

I kept reading because I wanted to find the turning point. I really did. The prologue was so good that I just had to hold onto the belief that there must be something resembling some kind of redemption within the pages, but I've now completed it and unfortunately I'm still awaiting. Thank F#%k I didn't hold my breath.

And I was having such a winning streak lately with books - I guess my luck has finally run out!

If you want spineless men who are completely immature... then this is the book for you.
