Bet Me

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.

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)

    "Classic Romantic Comedy"

    Funny book - a classic romantic comedy that gets better every time. Jennifer Crusie writes the most engaging characters - people I would like to meet.

    Bet Me has a realistic plot, interesting characters (family and friends), mild to moderate sex scenes, no violence and lots of laughs.

    "Fantastic Chick Lit Book!!"

    I loved this book!! The characters were lovable and the dialogue is just hilarious! I can't say enough good things about it. As a fellow chubby chick who got the handsome guy, I say, "You go, Minnie!"

    "Good time!"

    I first read this novel in paper back several years ago. I loved the story line and the strong personalities of the characters. It all came thru in the audio book. I laughed out loud. Again.

    "Loved It!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bet Me to be better than the print version?

    I only listened to this book, so I cannot compare it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bet Me?

    I loved the part when they made a stand and told their parents how it was.


    What does Deanna Hurst bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her narration was great. Always knew which character was talking.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I listened in the car, at my desk, cooking...

    "Good story, great narration"

    The distinct voices, easy to track, made this book for me. I read it when it was first published, and enjoyed the audiobook even more.

    "Women are beautiful in all sizes!"

    Overall I enjoyed this book and I think the narrator did a good job with her variety of voices. I like the build up to the "climactic" scene and the scene itself, and would have enjoyed a little more of the steamy parts.

    Leading lady is plus-size and carries all the negativity that she needs to lose weight. Sadly her thoughts ring true with society and what we women think about ourselves (even when we're not plus size), so it's refreshing to have a story about a real-sized woman!!

    Sometimes distracted by the over-use of "____ said". There are more ways to say that, like "he snarled", "she huffed", "she snapped", "she sighed", "he echoed"...

    "Okay not great"

    Too many: yes, no, maybe, almost...which made it predictable and tiresome. It made the plot contrived, and it was a shame because it had the possibilities for a superb farce.
