Bet on Me (Bet On Love #2) by Rachel Higginson

29285233Blurb: One night. One big mistake. One boy that changes everything.

Britte Nichols has a plan.

And it’s a good one. College. Med School. Illustrious career. Then maybe a husband. Possibly children, but she doesn’t want to get ahead of herself.

Britte decided at a young age that she wasn’t going to let love get in the way of her future. She has things to do. Places to go and all that.

Until the night she has one too many drinks and lets lust override logic.

Beckett Harris is gorgeous, talented and completely bad for her. But she wasn’t the only one feeling fireworks that night. Now Beckett wants to explore their chemistry and his timing couldn’t be more inconvenient.

Her heart wants what her head knows she can’t have. But a girl has needs. So when Beckett bets her a few weeks of harmless fun, she wants to say yes.

She’ll just have to bet that Beckett doesn’t fall for her too.

5 stars!

Okay, so I wasn’t prepared to read this book when it came out cause in my eyes no romance can really top Ellie and Fin’s.

And I was right…mostly.

Beckett is the winner of my heart in this one.  He is sensitive and introspective.  It’s like we get to see him change as he’s goes through life, trying to figure out his wants and desires. And I’m not just talking about his love life.  He does a hard course change in his professional and family life as well.  It was a joy to see a masculine persona have vulnerability and not lose his attractiveness.  He was smart, charming and had an ego to prove it.  But deep inside he was just as unsure as everyone else.

I found Britte to be a bit too controlling and rigid for my tastes.  She resisted too hard for me.  It came off as immature to me and contradictory to her actions in this book.  Her saving grace was the fact that she was, in fact, contradictory.  She tricked me into thinking she was gonna do something but then once she was about to do it, she flaked out.   I’m glad she flaked out, I just wish she could have realized  how she really felt before making a fool of herself.  I was embarrassed for her.  And the whole thing with her mom rubbed me the wrong way.  I guess she is a better person than me because I would have never allowed her back in my life after what she did.  But, I never would have allowed her to have that much power over my thoughts and feelings in the first place either.

Even though this is the second book in the Bet on Love series, you can read it as a stand alone.
