Lose a bet, lose your heart...
What is it about a junior-high crush that can send an otherwise intelligent woman into a tailspin? TV reporter Char Lynn wishes she knew. Jake Titus is too rich, too handsome, too arrogant: a trifecta that once lured Char into the best night-and worst morning-after-of her life. Now they've been thrown together in a wedding party. It's awkward, but survivable . . . until Jake stops acting like a jerk, and starts acting like the man she'd always hoped he could be.
If watching your brother marry your best friend is weird, being attracted to your best friend's other best friend is downright bizarre. Unfortunately for Jake, Char hasn't forgotten how he once tossed her aside. Worse still, Jake's already-nutty grandma is even crazier about Char. Cue meet-cute shenanigans and all manner of meddling, and somehow, Jake's falling. For Char. Now all he has to do is make her believe it . . .


Let me start off by telling you how much I love this series! Rachel really can write sweet, sexy, funny stories! Her characters have me laughing out loud throughout the book. Especially Grandma! That women is a riot, some of the things she pulls off are beyond hilarious. 

Jake Titus....what a fine specimen that man is! But, he's a jackass, he proved that in The Bet. However, you get more in depth with Jake in The Wager. He realizes how much he has thrown away and how his actions hurt those he loves and that includes Kasey's best friend Char. Char has loved Jakw for years, but he did something horrible and Char can't forget that. But that doesn't mean that she doesn't have feelings for him.
"I'm not backing out of the fight. I'm just choosing not to participate in it, especially when I know I don't deserve to even participate, let alone win."

This is the first real insight we get into what lies inside Jake Titus. And it only gets better! Add in Travis and Kasey trying to set Char up with Jace, one of Travis' friends, and it's like a fire started inside Jake and he can't control it. 

Char has had a shitty life, her parents have made her feel like she isn't enough. They are always comparing her to her sister, and are always forgetting her birthday. Jake does something really great for her and that makes my heart melt...FINALLY! Jake does have a heart in there after all!

"I want to ruin you for anyone else's kisses. I want to brand you as mine. I want to hear you say my name, not because you're irritated, but because you're so damn turned on you can't think straight. I want to do that to you. I want to make you mine."

This book was a 5 star read for me. It has everything I love in a book. Sweet romance, bad boys, humor, and hot sex scenes :) can't forget the sex scenes! You definitely want to read this series.

Dream Cast:

The Bet (Book One) in The Bet Series
 "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 . .
