Blurb: How bad could one harmless bet be? Kent Samson is about to find out. Raised in Alabama, Kent has hidden his past and now loves his life as a big time ad exec for a prestigious advertising company in New York. But when he makes a bet with his best friend, Blaine, Kent is thrown for a loop—for Kent has to make the next person to walk through the door fall in love with him.
Terry Barron is hiding out in New York. Raised in England in a wealthy family, Terry escapes to New York to avoid arranged marriages and the lifestyle he’s grown to hate. When he delivers a package to an advertising firm, he meets the unbelievably sexy Kent Samson. Suddenly, secrets and lies complicate everything and both men find themselves in uncharted waters. How will Terry feel when Kent is revealed as a betting man?
Review: This is a very predictable story about a rich guy (rags to riches) who identifies as straight and makes an ill-advised bet that he can get “the next person who walks in the door” to fall in love with him. Of course, the next person is a guy and Kent has to admit he swings both ways. Terry, the unsuspecting guy, has some secrets of his own, but the two find they have more in common than not.
It’s a sweet book, completely and totally unrealistic, but fun, nonetheless. It has some steamy smexy times and a bit of feels as well. It’s a quick read, nothing too deep, but fun.
I’m looking forward to reading more from this series.
