Publisher's Summary

Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. 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 are dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kremes, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a mutant cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions than either of them ever dreamed of, including the biggest gamble of all: real love.

What the Critics Say

"Hurst's voice contains an energy and exuberance that leaves little doubt that she's the perfect narrator for Crusie's heartfelt comedy of errors....[A] zesty, vibrantly told tale." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Fun and witty"

    This is the first Jennifer Crusie book I have listened to and I really enjoyed it. I found the characters to be fun and witty, the storyline engaging and the ending wrapt it up well. It is a light read, lots of romance and some sexy parts too, especially near the end. I particularly liked the underlying theme of self acceptance, as the main character Min moves towards embracing her curvaceous body, with the help and encouragement of Cal and her friends. Good narration also made it an enjoyable listen.

    "Painful to listen to..."

    Hard to listen to this one. The jokes were very corny and it seemed like a shallow plot line. Much prefer the humor of Madeline Wickham, Sophie Kinsella or Liane Moriarty. I was looking for something witty and light. This book was a big disappointment.

    Story
    "Chick lit"

    My sister and I listened to this on a road trip and died laughing. It is a funny book, but we laughed more at this outrages female character. Her insecurities and obsession with food are ridiculous, but you will still enjoy listening. Without giving away to much, the Krispy Kreme foreplay scene was one of the most absurd things I've ever listened to. I gave this four stars, not to be too critical, but because it wasn't anything to write home about.

    This is a light hearted rom-com of a book. Maybe a good read if you've recently read something heavy or technical!

    Story
    "Wasted Potential"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is so sad, this story and the characters have so much potential to be a great audiobook if only the narrator was more talented. There are so many characters and a narrator that can modulate their voice and actually act out the characters would have been preferred. That "he said", "she said" every line is very off putting and ruins the dialogue. I am sorely disappointed, and would actually love to listen to this again with a more talented narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters, they were very funny


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The flat tone for each character, I'm sorry but she is a very poor narrator.


    What character would you cut from Bet Me?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said I would love to listen to it again with a better narrator, she really ruined this story for me.

    "Betcha....."

    I loved the premise of this book. I saw so many similarities between the book and some of my real life relationships.

    No one is perfect, but there is someone perfect for each of us.

    Story
    "Bet Me is my Go To"

    I have read this book in paperback and listened to it in audible, multiple times in both formats. It's just the kind of book that you can get lost in and enjoy the fun.

    The performer is okay, but i imagined some of the characters to have a bit of a different voice. It's good though. Doesn't detract from the story.

    I recommend for fun and lighthearted entertainment!

    "Classic Crusie"

    This is such a great Crusie book- haven't found any other author that can mix drama, comedy, suspense and spicy love like her. This is quick witted and captivating.
