4.9 Stars

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.

Sophie + Jude.

We all remember Jude from previous books. (If you haven't read any Max Monroe books yet - don't worry, this is a standalone Rom-Com, but you should definitely read ALL THEIR BOOKS ASAP!)

Jude is a club promoter and he lives a very happy serial hook-up single guy life in New York City. No serious relationship dare come near him.

Sophie is the complete opposite. The event-wedding-planner is ΓΌber focused on finding her happily ever after.

Jude should so not be the right guy for her - especially after the way they met - pretending to be people they're not in real life ...


Jude is just so hilarious and sweet! All the brothers are amazing - can't wait to read all the stories!!

This was such an adorable opposites attract rom-com. So funny, sparky, sexxy ... just really sweet and beautiful. I loved reading this!

I just love this family and Lexi - the niece is just too cute - especially when she's with her uncles! LOL!
And of course we get our Thatch cameos - I think it should be a law that every future book will get a Thatch cameo! πŸ’œ

Great start to this new Winslow series!
Can't wait for Flynn's book - he's the mysterious silent brother! 

And still I'm asking myself: How are none of Max Monroe's books streaming their behinds off on Netflix yet??? The world is a weird and sad place!! 

A few tiny things. First... this confused me a bit. The title. The Bet. Ok... we get that one bet at the beginning - that's how Sophie and Jude meet. But then we get nothing betty anymore. I thought that was going to be their thing. But there's only a tiny little bet at the end. I wished there would've been a few more bet scenearios in the story!

And then .. I know that's just me... but I don't find the hugely announced hilariousness of the story... funny. Did my humor die after reading a billion books or even just dozens of Max Monroe books? I just don't think this was ΓΌber funny?! There were funny moments ... but nothing where I would spit out my drink or anything. :( But again - that's just me - going in expecting too much. But also - they tell you in the beginning to expect something extremely hilarious. :(

Then ... the cover. While a really cute/hot guy. I just can't stand the hand on/at the face thing. Just like the Max Monroe Cowboy book - that was even worse!

But still - I loved reading this and I will keep on reading alll the MM books for ever and ever!

THE BET was another amazingly funny and adorable and sexy Max Monroe Rom-Com! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Jude - he'll be sold out in no time!

The Girl in the Painting


About five years ago, a dynamic duo of romance authors teamed up under the pseudonym Max Monroe, and, well, the rest is history...

Max Monroe is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of more than thirty contemporary romance titles. Favorite writing partners and long time friends, Max and Monroe strive to live and write all the fun, sexy swoon so often missing from their Facebook newsfeed. Sarcastic by nature, their two writing souls feel like they’ve found their other half. This is their most favorite adventure thus far. ​
