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…

The Break-Up Bet is my first book by the author, I've found a new author to love.
Lucy and Connor are roommates out of necessity.
She needs a roommate and Connor needs a place to stay, simple enough solution right?
Except he's the bane of her existence. He's her brothers best friend, the man who she lusted after as a teen. Now he's in her home 24/7 and it's going to drive her nuts.
Oh and did I mention she's just broken up with her boyfriend of 3 years so this time she should be grieving/reassessing/or partying her tail off getting over/forgetting about that jerk but instead she has a sexy, grumpy piece of man candy roaming her halls giving her hell.
Connor's also dealing with a breakup, he came home to reassess and decide where his life is going. Moving in with Lucy may have been his only choice at the time but he's getting comfortable with her.
When they decide to take make a bet, he tries her way of getting over his ex if she tries his their entire world gets tossed upside down.
Their both about to see things from an entirely different view!
The Break-Up Bet is funny, sexy and sweet all in one. I love snark and these two definitely have that. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from the author.
