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.

"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)

I really enjoyed this book and did not want it to end. I'm ready for the sequel. The story line was quirky and characters were fun. Great diversion and light listen. This was the first Crusie novel for me but won't be the last.
I really enjoyed Bet Me. There were parts of the story that kind of made you roll your eyes but there were more funny parts than eye rolling parts so I consider this book a win. This was my first Jennifer Cruise book but it won’t be my last. If you like strong female characters, loveable (but not push over) guys, and lots of witty and funny dialog then I would recommend this book. I will be trying other Jennifer Cruise books in the future.
The characters were great! Loved the main characters wit & sense of humor! Worth the money - looking for another one from this author.
This was the worst book I have purchased from Audible. The narration was fine, but the story was one of the most predictable and contrived stories I have every heard. I don't think there was an original thought in this whole story. A complete disappointment. I would never purchase anything from this author again.
I actually had to stop listening to this book because the author seems to think the listener is not smart enough to figure out who is speaking, even if there are only 2 people in the room. Following nearly every statement is "he said" or "she said", I found myself saying this along with the reader and it started to drive me nuts! I finally had to move on to another book and just figured this credit was wasted.
I purchased this book during one of the $4.95 sales, and to be honest, I didn't have really high expectations. Well, was I ever surprised. I ended up loving this book; it was great. I mean, lets be honest, the formula is not unique but the characters are rich and full and you really start caring about them. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys chick lit. It won't disappoint.
This was the first Jennifer Crusie book I had listened to, although I have since listened to others. This is my favorite so far. The story is so clever in its theories of romance that many of the characters have and swear that their theory explains all. The characters are unique and fun. The narrator does a great job. I was laughing out loud in some parts and yet the story can be very sweet at other times. A word of warning . . . you may feel the need to go get donuts during or after reading.
This was a fun story with good characters. Unfortunately the author had a poor use of the English language and resorted to curse words repeatedly.
I've loved Jennifer Crusie's work since I read "Anyone But You" (love ya, Fred!), but this one has made me laugh and cheer out loud during my long commutes. The characters are so easy to like, the story engaging, and the funny moments are truly laugh-out-loud inspiring. Great job, Jenny!
