Betting the Billionaire
Author: Avery Flynn
Date of Publication: April 14, 2014
If that man calls her one more time… So what if Gabe Campos is a model-dating billionaire who gets Keisha Jacobs hotter than a Ferrari’s engine on the straightaway? He keeps pushing her to sell her family’s furniture business, but she’ll never give in—not unless she wants to give her father a second heart attack.
All Gabe should be thinking about is how he’ll finally get revenge on the man who killed his father. But when he meets the man’s daughter, Keisha, instead of focusing on destroying Jacobs Fine Furnishings, he can’t get her warm-whisky voice out of his mind.
Forced by a snow storm to spend the night together, their passion ignites. The next day, however, it’s back to business. The only way Keisha can save her family is to win a bet with the billionaire. But neither realized their hearts are part of the bargain…
I’m giving this book a 3-star and a very very short review. I’m not entirely sure why I didn’t particularly care for this book, but I think I just never connected with the characters.
Part of it was definitely Gabe. I really didn’t care for his condemnatory attitude and jump-to-conclusions way of thinking. He seriously should have taken more time rather than throwing everything he had into ruining someone’s business. I think Keisha’s a bit of a fool for moving beyond that as quickly as she did.
However, my reservations notwithstanding, I didn’t hate the book or swear off never reading another one by Ms. Flynn (there are authors I can think of that I’ve done that with). It’s a decent, short read, and smooth flowing on the writing style.
So, I admit this is a purely subjective POV and is probably not in agreement with others’ views. Reviews can be very subjective and in this case, the book just didn’t click and provide me with an enjoyable experience, just an okay one. It happens.
