The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken, Book Review
Blurb from the book:
"I have a proposition for you..."
Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus's mouth. Instead, she made a deal with the devil in hopes of putting her past behind her once and for all.
She could do four days!
But she wasn't counting on Jake’s older brother Travis being there to witness their farce of an engagement.
One thing is for certain.
One brother is right for her.
One wants a lifetime.
And one is in league with the devil.
She should have gotten Jake’s signature in blood.
The Bet is the newest release by Rachel Van Dyken. I typically don't read novels that are not considered "clean" or "sweet" so this is an exception for me. The story was amazing and I found myself completely engrossed in Kacey's story. The raw emotions and turbulent feelings were very real and I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning reading this new adult novel. The dynamic between Kacey and Jake was interesting, yet the dynamic between Travis and Kacey was incredible. There were moments in the book where I laughed out loud and moments when I felt like crying. (For the record, I don't cry easily, so the fact that I wanted to cry means the writing was superb) There were plenty of moments when I felt like punching a certain character as well! I find myself amazed at Rachel Van Dyken's ability to create such realistic situations where I feel like I am in the room watching the story unfold. I won't spoil the ending, but I will say that I am hopeful there is another book about one of the other characters!
Cussing, sexual references, and an open door sex scene (not erotic)
You can pick up The Bet via Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
