“Now, when we do happen to encounter each other at places that are not mentioned on the list, we will not do the following: hug, kiss, jump, hump, rub, or grind on each other. There will be no penetration with the following: finger, tongue, or penis. And, last but not least, the following holes will not be prodded—”
“Okay, okay, that’s enough,” he said, holding his hands up.
She frowned, looking at the paper. “I’m not done with my list. I need to lay everything out in clear terms so that things like last night do not happen again.”
 “Trust me, I can fill in the blanks.” He took a drink of his coffee, then set it down.
Bristol huffed, wiping her hands down the front of her skirt. Now that that was done and over with, she felt like a giant weight had been lifted off her shoulders. Her life could go back to normal, and— “Excuse me. What are you doing?”
He shrugged, coming around the desk. She backed up until her head was up against the pin board, the calendar's glossy paper crinkling behind her.
“You know what?” Noah asked, staring down at her. She swallowed thickly, words caught in her throat with no chance of escaping. “Every single thing you put on that list? I’m going to make it my goal to do the exact opposite of it.”

Blurb:
Make her orgasm, right there in the theater. This was the bet that started the end, the bet that changed his life.

Catfished and stuck with a sleezeball for a date, Bristol is miserable and angry. Screw Tinder and swiping right, she just wanted a quick one night stand. With a fake as her date, she doesn't expect the night to end on a good note...until she sees him. When her eyes land on the dark, sinfully handsome man at the concession stand of the movie theater, she's unprepared when he sits right next to her.

Every bet has a price; it's just a matter of how far you're willing to go.

Noah never would have guessed that the haughty, condescending woman he saw at the concession line would turn out to be a fireball of lust and desperation. Getting her to climax in the middle of a movie? No problem. Getting her out of his head afterward? Definitely a problem.

Our Review:

                        Wow! The Bet sure did surprise me. From the blurb, I really was not sure if I was going to enjoy this book. I am sure glad that I decided to take a chance on this book because it was well worth it. This book has hot and sexy scenes along with some comedy and romance! Everything a girl looks for in a good book!

The plot of this book intrigued me. The blurb is vague, but basically makes this book seem like it is more of an erotica rather than a novel. Honestly, I think the blurb should be rethought as I feel it might turn some readers off as it almost did me. What this book is actually about is much more. We find out pretty quickly about the two characters and what their motivations are. Noah has a lot riding on the bet while Bristol is just trying to make it through life. I am struggling to find words to describe it because I am afraid to give away too much so you should just go read this book.

Each character has a journey to go on through this book. Bristol is a workaholic who views male companionship as expendable. Noah has a lot going on with his life, but I feel he has a moral compass. Even with that, he makes some questionable decisions. I think this book shows that sometimes things are not black and white. You can’t always judge people based on first impressions, and you cannot always judge someone based on the actions without getting the details behind why. 

If you are looking for a book to bring the heat, this is the book for you. The chemistry between these two characters is tangible. We start off this book with one of the hottest scenes in the book, the movie theater where it all begins. Let me tell you, this scene right here about melted my panties right off. This author did an amazing job building up the tension and knowing when to release it.

This author has a very easy to read writing style. The use of dual points of views adds a depth in this story that I am thankful for. While at first this book seems to be fast paced, it slows down to a comfortable and organic pace. I really have nothing bad to say about the writing style in this book.

Overall, this is a wonderful book that I am so glad I took a chance on. The only complaint I really have is not really about the book, it is about the blurb. I would recommend this book to others. I thought this was a really well written book with dynamic characters and a lot of heat.
