Losing a long term boyfriend to my football career highlights one thing: it’s impossible for me to have both. With only a few years left to play, I decide to throw my full focus into the game. Then I meet Elliot. The flirty texts are immediate, trusting him comes easily, and when we’re together, I’ve never experienced something so explosive.
Until he drops a real bomb on me. He’s a bookie. And suddenly, being closeted is the least of my worries.
I have a plan. Make a large amount of money in a short amount of time, set myself up for life, and then get the hell out of bookmaking. Good at it or not, it’s illegal, and that’s a very gray line I’d prefer not to keep crossing. Especially when I meet Taryn. He’s the first guy who’s been able to steal my focus away from my goal, and I’ll do anything to deserve him.
But the thing about illegal jobs is, they’re not always so easy to walk away from.
The writing is great, full of intrigue, intense chemistry, hot sex, and one hell of an emotional ride. These well developed characters are fantastic together. The dialogue is great, full of some witty banter and hot texts.
Bet On Me is a great pick when you're in the mood for a sweet romance with plenty of mystery entwined throughout. If you're a sports romance junkie like I am, this is a must read. A new to me author, Saxon James has impressed me and I look forward to reading future works.
