The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken

The Bet


"I have a proposition for you." Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus's mouth. It's been years since Kacey's seen her childhood friend Jake, but the minute Jake mentions his ill grandmother, Kacey is ready to do anything for the sweet old woman. And if that means pretending they're engaged for her sake-so be it.

But Kacey wasn't counting on Jake's older brother Travis still being there. She calls him "Satan" for a reason: she's never forgotten the way he teased and taunted her. Yet when they meet again, Travis's gorgeous smile is a direct hit to her heart . . . and Kacey's more confused than ever. As the days pass, only one thing starts to become alarmingly clear-she never should have accepted Jake's deal . . .


This was a quick light read, but still enjoyable. I thought that Travis might be kept in the dark, but I was glad that he knew from the start that Kacey and Jake were not really getting married. I hated Jake, but then I think you are kind of supposed to. I mean he does whatever he wants and doesn't really care about anyone, even though he thinks he cares about Kacey he can't really stop his playboy ways. 

Travis on the other hand...he was just so cute. I loved the way Kacey and him just were so childish in their flirting. It was so much fun to read. I loved it. I really liked Travis and Kacey together and how they slowly got together. I didn't really understand why Travis messed up towards the end...he tried to explain it but I didn't really get it. It didn't make sense to me. Still doesn't, but since everything works out thanks to the grandmother I let it slide.

I also really enjoyed the snippets of Travis when he was younger. I know he didn't show Kacey he cared in a traditional way but he was so cute! I really liked Travis.  

Overall it was a fun story.
