Title: The Break-Up Bet
Author: Cat Carmine
Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 31, 2019
Never make a bet with a man who plays to win…
Especially not a man like handsome, arrogant Connor Pratt.
AKA the huge PITA who’s currently crashing in my spare room.
AKA my brother’s best friend since they were about six.
AKA the one guy who still makes me feel like an awkward tongue-tied loser.
But when Connor moved in, I got a glimpse of another side of him. Because, like me, Connor’s going through a nasty break-up. And, like me, he’s just doing whatever he can to get through it.
Unfortunately, his method involves drinking alarming amounts of whiskey and watching a lot of, um … movies … that make every inch of my skin flush.
I’m just trying to be helpful when I tell him that he should try my way: copious amounts of baked goods, sappy romantic comedies, and late nights spent whining with girlfriends.
But I should have known Connor would take that as a challenge.
Now, he says he’ll try my way of dealing with a break-up … but only if I agree to try his. Six months rent to the person whose method works best.
We call it the break-up bet. And I’m going to win. Except right now, it feels like there’s a whole lot more at stake than just rent money…

Sugary sweet with a good dose of humor and a whole lot of heart! The Break-Up Bet was so much fun to read. Cat Carmine does a fantastic job of keeping up that lighthearted sweetness while still having depth to Connor and Lucy’s story along with some delicious steam to really amp things up to the next level.
Lucy was adorable, a baking blogger she was a sweet as all the delicious treats she was always whipping up. Fair warning though, this book definitely gave me a huge sugar craving between the treats and the swoon. Connor was definitely the opposite of the sweet and a bit innocent Lucy. He has a sexy and outgoing exterior that hides his own insecurities but that doesn’t hide the genuine heart of gold that he has. When these two start a competition with a bet that only serves to turn the sparks between them into explosive chemistry it creates an unputdownable read that will keep you swooning, giggling and fanning yourself.
