Lists with This Book. Jul 20, D. The heroine of this book ate Chicken Marsala in two different restaurants, twice for takeout, at a wedding, at a dinner with her friends and cooked it 4 times with different levels of success. I enjoyed the first part of cusie book — the humor was not over the top and ejnnifer plot was wacky but not creepy. Then as the book progressed, I found two of my big pet peeves: Did my Mother stop completely?
He was so nice and thoughtful that women fell in love with him in droves and when he realized they were more serious than him, he would break up with brt. He made them fall in love! Because you know, crusif are little girls that cannot take responsibility for their own feelings and must get every man they want.
Because I liked the humor, I was thinking that I should give this author another shot, but then I thought that for the first time ever, an author has put me off food.

I’ve read this one and Welcome to Temptationwhich are supposed to be her top two books and my feelings for both are overwhelmingly I know she’s supposed to be one of the queens of Chick-lit, so this leads me to believe that Chick-lit will never be my jam.
And Min is always gonna be chubby. She doesn’t magically lose the weight then find her prince charming. And prince charming Cal isn’t one of those guys who already knows he likes the curvy ladies. It isn’t until he talks to her that he realizes he finds her interesting and sexy. The problem is, he’s taking a break from women. But Min is different. And she’s worked her way under his skin The back and forth between these two was really cute and sweet.
And Kennifer enjoyed the fact that she wasn’t thin. One thing I thought was maybe a jennicer odd were all the food references. I didn’t find the find the scene where he tied her up and fed her donuts all that sexy, to be honest. Also, how many times can you eat chicken Marsala before you get thoroughly jnenifer of it?
Branch out and try something new, girl! I blew through it in a couple of days and don’t regret it one bit. Chick-lit may not rock my world, but I certainly don’t feel like it’s a waste of my time.

May 23, Lisa Jayne rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Lisa Jayne by: A fabulously written book with plenty of heart and soul, low on the drama and high on the humour, ‘Bet me’ is a book that all romance lovers should have on jennifeg ‘I need to jennifee shelves.
My book heart was crying out for a chic-lit fix, so with a few recommendations for this book under my belt I decided to forge ahead and reconnect with my first love of reading style. This mr did not disappoint ‘Bet me’ was a gorgeously funny and romantic escape and i’m left with a huge smile on my face.
What’s it all about Minerva ‘Min’ Dobbs is a slightly cynical, witty and suspicious thirty something who has found herself dumped by a man who she barely liked let alone loved. Trouble is Min has an impending wedding to attend as her sisters bridesmaid, throw in the need for a date, two hilariously entertaining best friends, an overbearing mother and a dress that doesn’t jennife and Min finds herself looking for a replacement man to fill the dateless gap. Min is well aware that there is no such thing as a prince charming to deliver her own happily-ever-after especially one who asks her on a date to win a bet.
Calvin ‘Cal’ Morrisey is ridiculously handsome and successful, this charmer is not looking for a long term commitment especially with the girl who fails to fall for his boyishly good charms, so the two jennife through a dubious bet and fall straight into drama, chaos and the possibility of love, ‘Bet me’ jennifee the wonderful story of Cal and Min Can opposites really attract? What did I love?
Spectacularly well written, witty and full of humour this story is chic-lit at its finest. The book was so random it was amusing, I could not get enough of this loveable story that I devoured in just one sitting. Lately I have found myself so overrun with dramatic books that ‘Bet me’ was a complete breath of chic-lit air. I loved both the hero and heroine in this story, I fell in love with Min, she was sassy and vulnerable and I loved her quirky, goofy sense of humour even with her self doubt she was always likeable a great leading lady for the delectable Cal, this hero was outstanding he was sweet and sexy and all rcusie book yummy, I was more than pleased cursie meet this duo.
The book has Great supporting characters and so many point of views in the book I lost count, just know this; it worked jnnifer I loved getting snippets of ‘life’ from all the characters. The dialogue between the characters is nothing short of amazing, it is so fast paced and entertaining I was in awe at my reading experience.
There was nothing that I didn’t love about this story and I’m rushing now crusiw read other books by this talented author. Amazing intro, juicy in between bits and a deliciously scrumptious ending, I am officially in book love.
Jennifer Crusie is obviously an established author, her writing style is flawless and this book had me swooning and laughing in equal measure. What more can I say? If you are a jdnnifer of a romance with more laughs than your local comedy club, then don’t hang around, go grab it readers View all 87 comments.

It was full of light humour and absolutely free of drama. It is a book you read when you need something to pick you up. I’m so glad I read it! The main characters were mostly insane We have “Min” who after being dumbed by the world’s biggest idiot goes into her “all men jennier pigs” phase, and we have “Calvin”, the comitment-phobe, who gets entangled in a stupid bet against his will.
They are our main couple. She is a 5 Beautifully Insane Stars This book was She is a little chubby and never takes risks, he is a gambler. They decide they have nothing in common and won’t be seeing each other again. But fate has other ideas It’s in my genes. Like self raising flour.
She is a relationship gourou and she is certain that love can be clinically analyzed and she is meant to be with Cal Don’t get me started with Cal’s mom, Aka “The Iceberg”. This book strikes for funny and light and the characters reflect it.
