Bet on Me by Rachel Higginson



New Adult Romance, Best Friend’s Sibling Romance




One night. One big mistake. One boy that changes everything. Britte Nichols has a plan. And it’s a good one. College. Med School. Illustrious career. Then maybe a husband. Possibly children, but she doesn’t want to get ahead of herself. Britte decided at a young age that she wasn’t going to let love get in the way of her future. She has things to do. Places to go and all that. Until the night she has one too many drinks and lets lust override logic.

Beckett Harris is gorgeous, talented and completely bad for her. But she wasn’t the only one feeling fireworks that night. Now Beckett wants to explore their chemistry and his timing couldn’t be more inconvenient. Her heart wants what her head knows she can’t have. But a girl has needs. So when Beckett bets her a few weeks of harmless fun, she wants to say yes. She’ll just have to bet that Beckett doesn’t fall for her too.

*This book can be read as a standalone*


I LOVED the first book in this series and I wanted to love Bet on Me just as much, but I didn’t. There were moments that made me laugh mixed in with the heavier emotional moments throughout the story. In the end this book was a quick sweet romance, but it won’t be making my favorites list. The highlight of this book for me was actually the moments when Fin and Ellie made appearances, or Lennox and Grayson.





I didn’t want to go to coffee with him any afternoon. I just wanted to hide in the apartment I shared with Ellie and collect cats. At this point in my failed dating career, I was pretty sure my soulmate was a cat.

“I know we’re talking about killing me…but that was maybe the sexiest thing I’ve ever heard. Forget talking dirty. I might need you to go over the periodic table later.”

“It was her. Sugar and spice, side by side, one inside the other. A goddess wielding fire and vengeance. A warrior queen. She was this gorgeous woman with drive and passion, and she was completely brilliant.

Ellie got to do whatever she wanted to do because she was the spoiled-rotten baby of the family. My parents would have let her quit society altogether and move out to a tree house in the middle of the woods living buck naked with the raccoons for the rest of her life. And they would have thought it was adorable the entire time. Aw, Ellie, our little troublemaker.

“People aren’t willing to work at things. They’re so afraid of pain and being uncomfortable that they run at the first sign of trouble.”

“I wanted to taste her fire every damn day. I wanted her to consume me. Burn me to the ground. Turn me to ash and dust and then bring me back to life with that same fire.
