The Bet

The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken

“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 . . .



“It’s important to keep your options open. It’s important to live and not get hung up on the past.The past is called the past for a reason. If you are constantly looking behind you, your eyes aren’t on the road ahead.You don’t drive a car that way, so why would you live your life that way?.”
― Rachel Van Dyken , The Bet

“Sometimes, when life gets hard, and people make you angry or even when you’re scared, the best response is laughter. Laugh in the face of fear, in the face of what scares you the most. It’s the only way to get you through the things that bring you to tears.”
― Rachel Van Dyken , The Bet

“That, he said as he kissed her nose.”Is a shame. You should be told you’re beautiful every day. Because every day it’s true, and every time i see you , you grow in your beauty.Just because people don’t say the words, doesn’t mean its any less true, Kace.”
― Rachel Van Dyken , The Bet

“Yes, I’ll marry you…..Satan.”
“Awww, see? We already gave pet names!”
― Rachel Van Dyken , The Bet



“Because of you, Kace. Everything I do, everything I’ve done in my life, it’s all because of you.”

“Where have you been all my life?” she said, watery-eyed.

“Home,” Travis answered a note of seriousness in his voice. “I’ve been home, waiting for you.”

This book was “FANTASTIC”, it had me laughing at all the shenanigans & funny bickering, Grandma Nadine loved meddling but she meant well and she was hilarious. Travis was amazingly sweet despite all the pranks he pull on Kace when they were children but the things he did for her without her even knowing were very touching. Jake was a complete “ass” (Kace words not mine)
This book is great for people looking to read a romance without it being too serious or heavy going, it will have you laughing out loud 😀
