Bet in the Dark by Rachel Higginson

Bet in the Dark
Ellie Harris just found out her college roommate has stolen her identity and her furniture. A hot college guy, Fin Hunter, is at her dorm asking for seven thousand dollars that supposedly she owes him. The money is from an online poker game. Ellie has no idea how to play poker and can't believe her roommate has done this to her. She agrees to pay part of it to Fin by working for him until she can get the rest of the money.

Everyone in college knows Fin. This includes a couple of her overprotective brothers. Ellie wants to be independent. She has refused help from her parents and her brothers before.  She has no idea how to pay back the money she owes Fin especially when he tells her what the money is for.

Ellie and Fin become close and the more time they spend together, the more they want to be together.

This is a YA book. It had me laughing from the first chapter. I liked the story. The heroine is not damaged and she has great brothers. I wonder if they are getting their own story, especially Beckett.

"He groaned as if frustrated and then whispered almost so quietly I didn't hear him, "I'm going to keep you."
