The bet by JL Beck and C Hallman


“He was my best friend…” I say more to myself than her.
“Yeah, so was I but you seem to have forgotten that part of your life.”

The bet was simple.
You draw a name from the hat.
That’s the girl you have to seduce.
The girl you have to make fall head over heels in love with you.

It wasn’t hard for me to do, in fact it was something I did all the time. I was known for breaking hearts. Sex was just that, sex. And it didn’t take me very long to get a woman on her back.

And then I drew her name: Jules Peterson.

My former best friend. My first kiss. My first love. She shattered my heart into a million pieces three years ago. She left me right when I needed her most.

And as fate who have it, she had entered my life once again, at almost the perfect time.

She was a transfer, fresh meat, and she had just put a target on her back. It was my turn to make her pay. It was my turn to break her heart.

Holding onto that hate, that anger, that f*cking heartbreak. It does something to you. It breaks you, and it broke me, it tainted me, just like I would do to Jules.

She used to be my everything, but now she was nothing but The Bet.

My Thoughts

So not going to lie, I didn’t intend on reading this book because it had a 4 star review on Amazon. But when I posted in LuvBooks Club on facebook in search of some bully romances J.L Beck herself suggested the book so I thought why not! I was surprised how much I enjoyed it! A lot of reviews posted about how his abandonment issues didn’t give him a good enough reason to be so angry but from one damaged soul to another I completely got it.
Remington and Jules are two best friends/future lovers separated for a long time before they are brought back together. Coincidence? Absolutely not. Two souls that were meant to find their way back to each other did. I do wish that a couple of sublime story lines were developed more on but maybe as I continue to read the series they will be!
