Betting on You by Jessie Evans
Betting On You (Always a Bridesmaid 1)
He'd always bet on her, always...
Lark March is over Mason Stewart, so over him she's practically forgotten the cruel way he ended things four years ago. At least that's what she's told her sisters... But when Mason shows up at her best friend's wedding, talking sweet and looking even sweeter, Lark can't deny the man still gets to her in a major way.
Mason Stewart was a messed up kid, but he's a man now, a man who knows what he wants and won't stop until he's convinced the only woman he's ever loved that they are meant to be. He persuades Lark to give him seven days to remind her why they belong together. At the week's end, Lark may tell him to get out of her life for good, but Mason's betting on true love for the win.
But when old secrets come to light, Lark and Mason will find their rediscovered love tested, and happily ever after harder to hold on to than either of them wagered.
I'm pretty indifferent to this book. It wasn't written in a way that I would hate the characters or love them. I didn't really care about them. If I sit and think about the events of the book I think Lark is so lame, but while reading it I just didn't care. It was just a light quick read.
Mason left Lark four years ago, the day after he proposes to her. His reasons are alright I guess. He needs to grow and be a better person for her. Sure. Not once in those four years did he contact her though. So now the start of the book he comes back and convinces her to give them another chance. Go on a date every day for a week and then if she doesn't want him he will leave her alone. Sounds alright.
Lark pretty much forgives him right away. Well she tries not too, but she is not too successful at that. Maybe it is just me, but man I would not forgive him half as easily as she does. She does 'test' him one day and then all is well. Almost. There was a big secret revealed which based on everything else shouldn't have been that upsetting Upsetting sure, but my life is over I will never love again I won't even try and live at all from now on upsetting no. Then how Lark just gets over it like that...if she were really so upset wouldn't it take longer to get over it? Yes her sisters talked to her, but it didn't really seem that that should have worked that well. Oh well.
