The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken

The #1 New York Times bestseller... "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 . . .

Kacey is trying to help out her old best friend Jake. They haven't spoken in years because things didn't end so well with them. Jake has kept his distant and so has Kacey, but she'll do anything for Grandma Nadine, even being his fake fiancé. It's only for a few days, she can do anything for a few days. As long as she doesn't have to see Travis, Jake's older brother she'll be fine, but life never works out that easily for her. Travis was always relentless in teasing and torturing her, but things are different now. They are all grown up and mature right?

I love this story! It's my second time reading it and love it just as much as the first time. Kacey is so sweet! She's been through a lot in the past few years and will do anything to repay Grandma Nadine for her kindness. Grandma Nadine is a saucy little devil! She is hilarious! She's the puppet master of this family and I love it! I laughed so much when Kacey and Travis would bicker back and forth just like in their childhood, but there was sexual tension in the mix this time around.

The Bet is such a great, cute, and sexy read. This is the type of story that can be read again and again.
