Book Review: The Bet by Max Monroe | About That Story
The Bet (Winslow Brothers #1) by Max Monroe

When it comes to life’s fun and games, always know:
The rules.
What’s at stake.
When to quit.

Wise words from…well…my fortune cookie. But wise words, nonetheless.

I just wish the Fortune Cookie People had considered how hard the whole “knowing when to quit” would be to carry out when a woman like me is gambling with her feelings.

Heart-palpitating, vageen-tingling, butterflies-in-my-belly feelings for a noncommittal, hot-as-sin player by the name of Jude Winslow.

After a crazy night where we were both pretending to be someone else, I’ve found myself immersed in the fun of the fling.
The thrill.
The irresistible charm.
The pleasure of being with a man like him.

Problem is, I’m positive he’s the exact opposite of husband material, and that is a serious issue for someone who is fixated on finding her happily ever after.

I know the rules and I know the stakes, oh wise Fortune Cookie.

Now I’d just like to know how close to self-destruction I have to get before I find the will to quit Jude Winslow.

Goodness knows, when your heart is on the line, you can’t ante up your bet with an IOU.

Author Note: The Bet is a full-length standalone romantic comedy and the first standalone book in the Winslow Brothers Collection. This book is chock-full of hilarious rom-com moments, but also, it’s spicy. We’re talking alllllll the sexy.

4 out of 5 stars

The Bet was a fantastically fun and steamy ride! Seriously, Jude and Sophie were H O T hot! I loved the passion between them, the build to their feelings, and finding their way to a HEA. I had a blast reading it!

I love how Jude and Sophie met, it was entertaining and sexy right from the start. I loved the pull between them and thought they had excellent chemistry. I liked learning about them, what held them back, and where they were at in life. They were playful and sweet together and there were a lot of heartfelt moments too. There were also so many exciting, fiery scenes, I was smiling and fanning myself all the way through. I really liked that feeling of anticipation I had as they grew and their feelings came out.

This was a super entertaining and hot story. There's a bit of angst and mild drama plus a nice amount of emotion mixed in to balance it out. I enjoyed all the characters involved and thought the Winslow family was fantastic. There were a lot of great scenes with all of them that had me laughing. I can't wait to read all the brothers stories.

This story was just what I needed. Sexy, fast-paced fun! Max Monroe knows how to bring the hotness! From the sweet to the heat, I totally enjoyed The Bet
