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)

    "Delightful!"

    If you are looking for a steamy sexy romances this book is not for you. However if you are in the mood for feel good, hilarious romance with quirky side characters, this book is JUST for you. I bought this on sale and was not expecting much. BOY was I wrong. I had a lot of fun, including laughing out loud on a train. The dialougue and the situation got really silly and funny. I must've looked like a maniac. I have to say because I listened to it, hearing "she said," "he said" repeatedly got tiresome and annoying in somepart.

    I also have to point out I looked up the receipe for Chicken Marsala after I read this book. I need to cook it at least once!

    "Funny delightful -a great listen!"

    I have listened to this book twice and will do so again!
    It is great entertainment - the narrator does a swell job and keeps your interest throughout the story.
    If you want a book that will help you pass a few hours and leave you with more than a few smiles - give this one a try.

    It is my favourite Jennifer Crusie (audio) so far!

    "A Romance Convert"

    I have never liked romances, but this one has changed my mind. This book was so incredibly nuanced, detailed and layered. The main characters are complex, hilarious, and they have stayed with me.

    I downloaded this book to listen to during a cross state drive and I loved it and it made my long drive fly by.
    The narrator annoyed me for the first few minutes but then I really enjoyed her as she really did a good job of giving each character their own voice.

    And let me not forget that the main character is plus size, and she is beautiful the way she is and she is loved the way she is. I wish there were more books like this one!

    I am now ready to download another Crusie book!

    "Fun, fun, fun!"

    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.

    "Fun and Witty"

    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.

    "Completely predictable"

    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.

    "she said - he said - she said"

    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.

    "So much better than I expected!"

    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.

    "Super entertaining and fun!"

    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.
