RATING: 4 STARS
The Bet is a shorter novel that's picking up the story of Addison Allmon after she moves back to White Sands from her rock bottom moments back home in Norton. Erica set the story up with "The Kiss" and rocked me with a cliffhanger, as a result, I was beyond excited when this portion was delivered to my kindle.
The Kiss leaves us off with a bet between Addison and some random super hot tattooed man in a bar named Luke. Luke stumbles back into Addison's life when it's discovered that he is the nephew of her boss. She makes the connection before he does, but it doesn't take long before he's up to speed. And "The Bet" begins. 30 dates before he'll kiss her. We're taken along through the obvious sexual chemistry between the two, especially when they're forced off to an exotic locale for work purposes, and an interruption from Addison's past, which was the basis of the first book.
This isn't an angsty book, but it has some great emotional development and build up. It's a quick read, as it only took me a couple of hours to breeze through, even uninterrupted by my kids. ;)
And as a heads up, you'll be left wanting more!
***This book releases tomorrow (May 12th, 2015) and is available for pre-order right now!
