Publisher's Summary

Ellison Gamble owns the most successful luxury real estate firm in Boston, but the accomplishment feels hollow when she comes home to an empty house.

Institutionalizing her mother for her own safety was the hardest thing Katie Crawford has ever done. The costs are becoming more than she can manage, and her only solution is to sell her childhood home that has fallen into disrepair.

After a tense first interaction with Katie, Ellison eventually finds herself in an unlikely friendship, and makes a risky offer to help Katie sell her mother’s home. Katie will do anything to help her mom, but being attracted to a woman for the first time was not in the plan.

Will the risks they take be worth the reward? Or have they wagered on a losing bet?

The best out of the set

Ellison is such a great character. I admit I wasn't buying this connection with her and Katie, but over the course of the book you start to get really invested in the HEA. It's a very enjoyable story. Highly recommended 👌

Everything!

Fiona Riley and her beautiful mind for the win. I'm not sure how she does it but she combines sweet, cute, funny and the most incredible sex scenes in hours of listening pleasure! Read it! The narration was fantastic as usual!

Wonderful story.

This might be my new fave book from Fiona Riley, moving past Miss Match , into first place. The story, the characters, the emotion… hell, everything was awesome. Throw in an age gap and toaster oven and you have one hell of a story! The narration was great too, giving each character their own personality.

Excellent

This by far was my most favorite of this series. Loved how it began the in-between as well as the ending. I couldn't stop listening until it ended, and still listened to it all over again. Great story and great narration!!

Loved with a but!

This is a wonderful story! My only but is the way Katie handled the one period in their relationship that might have been dealt with a little less of a total flip. I get working things out and I am of course, glad at the resolution, but honestly, if there are truly women as wonderful as Ellison out there, you can be sure I would not venture too far away! This is a great story of getting what you want and need in your life and being able to share this success on an equal plain with your partner! Well done!

Another beautiful bet

It may have taken some time for the bet to finally pay off but when it did it was like hitting the lottery. Loved this latest book in the series and hope there are more in the horizon.
