The Bet

The Bet
by Rachel Van Dyken

Buy on Amazon

Rating: 5/5 Stars


"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.


This book was absolutely hilarious.  I loved the banter between Kacey and Travis.  I loved the mystery behind Jake's motives.  The entire book is just a great time.  The grandma?  Hilarious!  She reminds me so much of my granny - so sexually outspoken!  When I was reading some of the things the grandma was saying, I couldn't help but shake my head and laugh.  I just loved this book so much!  I took a break after reading this book so I could think coherently to write my review, and even now I'm still haven't problems not gushing.

The characters were completely loveable, and I couldn't help but fall in love with the entire Titus family.  I definitely don't want to give away any spoilers, but both of the brothers are great guys deep down, just one wasn't quite ready to be in a relationship with Kacey.  I have to admit though, I really hope there's a sequel for the other brother!! 

Kacey is such a sweet character, when I read about her past, I couldn't help but want to hug her.  Kacey grew so much throughout the story of this book and it was a moving journey.

Ugh, I just want to gush more.  Seriously.  This book is absolutely the most adorable and endearing book I've read so far this year.  I think I'm going to have to read it again really soon.  <3 p="">
