Book Review: A Bet Worth Making

A Bet Worth Making (Book 2 in the Grayson County Series) by Heather Hildenbrand

A Bet Worth Making: A Grayson County Novel (Grayson County Series Book 2)Jordan DeWalter has her future mapped out—build the most impressive architectural design portfolio in all of New England, and use it to one day open her own firm. But when her father unexpectedly passes away, her plans, and her heart, are broken. Now, if she wants the money once promised to her, she’ll have to return to the town that threw her family out over twenty years ago in order to get it.

If there’s one thing Jordan despises more than small towns, it’s small town people.

Casey Luck has spent his life skating by on charm and a devil-may-care attitude. Never one to take life too seriously, he’s kept secret his dream of building custom dirt bikes. Instead, he fills the role his family expects: tractor mechanic, farm handyman, comedic relief. But, deep down, Casey’s restless for something more.

Then he meets his new roommate: Jordan.

Their attraction is instant, but Jordan’s not fooled by the chemistry between them. When the summer is over, she’s out of here no matter what. In fact, she’s willing to bet on it.

Will their undeniable connection be the push they both need to break free of their pasts, or will Jordan’s wager on their failure ruin the future for them both?

A bet worth making is about two people from two very different upbringing, Jordan has this big project in a little redneck town that she has to make a great impact on. All the while Casey the guy that lives in the little redneck town has been harboring his truly talent skills. 

When I read A Bet Worth Making, it did take some time to start the whole bet betting business. But I could tell form first glance that both Casey and Jordan were hit with the love bug bite although neither one of them was willing to take that risk. 

I really like that Jordan had a passion for fixing up houses as well as build them and what better than to do two love birds from the first book. However I wasn't a fan that Jordan felt that she had to put herself in a position. Although I saw the sentimental behind it, but I felt that she shouldn't have put herself in such a vulnerable position. 

Casey definitely sells himself short by hiding his talent, but he also knows that he is head over heels for Jordan. Although the whole bet(s) that the two made could destroy what they have. 

I give this 4 Cat Paws, overall, I like the book. I like the whole flirting dance between Jordan and Casey.
