Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie
After overhearing her slimy ex-boyfriend bet his good-looking friend Cal that Cal couldn’t sleep with her within a month, sensible shoe-fanatic Min decides to date Cal – and make both Cal and her ex look like fools in the process. If only revenge (and love) was that simple! Snappy dialogue, a loveable and intelligent main character, and amusing rom-com scenarios fill the pages of this well-deserved RITA award winner. Bet on this one.
