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.

Good Books Don't Promote Violence
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.
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!"
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.
Among the Best
The scence at the baseball field.
Not necessary book is just that good.
This is a book you will listen to time and time again.
Enjoyed the story and reader was great recommend
I only listened to this book, so I cannot compare it.
I loved the part when they made a stand and told their parents how it was.
Her narration was great. Always knew which character was talking.
Yes. I listened in the car, at my desk, cooking...
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"...
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.
