A pinch of sugar. A dash of dirty talk. Mix it with sexual tension and a fake relationship and it might just be a recipe for love!
Chloe Sparks lives to bake, and her business is thriving.
Everything is great – except the guy she’s been casually dating took a $500 bet to pick her cherry (and not the pastry kind) while she’s in love with her best friend’s brother.
But does he notice her? Nope.
Rich Anderson has stuck Chloe in the friend-zone because she’s too good for him.
And that has worked for years…until she decides to use the bet her ex made as revenge…
She just needs a partner.
If Rich doesn’t do it, she’ll find someone else who will.
Something he definitely can’t live with.
Only, a few fake dates lead to kisses that feel pretty real.
So what happens when things go too far and Rich’s obsession with baked goods and the woman who makes them threatens to give him a sugar overload?
Will he continue to suffer from the belief that he’s too rough? Or is he just the right amount of dirty for her sweet?
Happily ever after just might start with dirty talk, pastry bags, and costumes.
The Bet is a friends-to-lovers, fake romance sprinkled with cupcakes, frosting, and a picnic basket full of goodies…all set in the Alexia Chase football world.
