This is New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Crusie's novel about long shots, risk management, true love, and great shoes. . . .
Minerva Dobbs knows how to work the odds.
Calvin Morrisey always plays to win.
But when they face off, neither one is prepared.
Because when real life meets true love, all bets are off. . . .
Minerva Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet, even if he is gorgeous and successful Calvin Morrisey. Cal knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs, even if she does wear great shoes and keep him on his toes. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again.
But fate has other plans, and it's not long before Min and Cal meet again. Soon they're dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a freakishly intelligent cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions than either of them ever dreamed of. Including the biggest gamble of all---true love.
Bet Me begins when Min and her friends are at the bar where her boyfriend just broke up with her three weeks before her sister's wedding. Now she's dateless and upset because she knows why her boyfriend really broke up with her... And then she over hears him and another guy making a bet about who would get to take her home that night. Well Cal has another thing coming if he thinks Min is just going to roll over just because he's hot... And Cal only likes to be single. He doesn't want to get married and that's why his ex-girlfriend left him because of this. So now he's a free man to do what he wants. And when he gets dragged into a bet he didn't want any part of he and Min start to have strange feelings for each other!
I have to say I only read till fifty percent of this book then I just sorta skimmed through the rest till I gave up. I mean the only good part was between Min and Cal. But then that just got to be dumb in my opinion. I hated that they kept doing the same thing over and over again, instead of admitting they had feelings for each other. And then the fact that each of their ex's kept getting in the way as well frustrated me. Especially when Min's friends help the ex's too. So this was a no go for me. I didn't like it at all, and was majorly disappointed with it.
