Let me start out by saying that I'm a complete cover whore, and this cover earned 5 stars on it's very own. Now onto the fantastic goodness inside of it. Laci Monroe grew up around baseball players her whole young life, but after her parents marriage disintegrated in spectacular fashion that destroyed her teenage years, she won't give any baseball player a shot at all. So she's the perfect person for managing the media accounts for the Carolina Rays baseball team, as they won't be able to get he ...more

May I start off by saying that this cover is H-O-T. Okay, drooling session over. Let's get into this review.

This book took a while to build momentum, but I am glad that I stuck around because this book was good. This book is a about a pro baseball player who, dumbly, places a bet that he can get the new team's "MOM" to sleep with him, so that she can get fired. This book is told from both Laci's and Jake's pov and I loved Jake all the way. While trying to win the bet against his teammates, Jake

This is the first book I have read from Elizabeth Perry. I thought Bet on it was a super cute,sexy, funny story.
Laci gets a job as a manager for a professional baseball team. It was her dream job.But there was one thing she can not do...fall in love with any of the team mates.Sure enough she starts falling in love with Jake. One of the best players.

Ok we're do I start off with this little gem ? First let me start off with I don't normally read sports romance because frankly I do not know squat about sports . But Elizabeth Perry mad it so easy for me to understand .

So to the book .... Laci Monroe had a hard beginning a lot of people could probably relate family abandonment... anyways she knows everything about baseball and gets her dream job well anything is better then listening to some jerk watch porn all day in the next cubicle. So she

My very first book by Elizabeth Perry and must admit I devoured this book. I love Sport Romance books, they are always my go-to choice when I want to read something new. I like not only the romance aspect of the story, but some authors can write a sports scene so well it makes you feel like you are right there in the crowd. Elizabeth only touches on the on-field action a little bit in this story, but what she does seem to capture in this book is a heroine that knows ALOT about baseball. Laci has ...more

Laci needs a new she finds one with the Carolina Rey's Baseball Team. She grew up around baseball and knows all about the players, with her history there's no way in the world she would ever sleep with a baseball player, which is a good thing, because her contract strictly forbids it and it would be an instant dismissal if she did. Being the team M.O.M will be an easy job.

Jake is the star player of the team, everybody loves him (apart from the oppositions fans), there is a lot mo

This is the first book that I have read by this writer. It was a very interesting book from the beginning to the end. I am not a big fan of baseball but this book was interesting . I did enjoy reading this book. She has a unique way of writing that makes the book enjoyable from the beginning to the end. She does keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what is going to happen with the characters. I absolutely loved the character chemistry between Jake and Laci. It was intense and hot.

Oh I just love baseball romance books so when I saw this one I grabbed it! I was not disappointed in the least!

Jake is the super sexy, hotheaded, and a secret romantic. I just loved his character and the way he fell for Laci and claimed her from the get go.

Laci was super independent and was totally against falling in love with a sports star. The way she handled the “pranks” that were pointed her way was better than I ever could have done!! Haha I loved that she gave Jake a run for his money ye

Laci get a job for the Carolina Rey’s Baseball Team. It is her dream job, but her contract says she can’t sleep with any of the players. No problem, she grew up with hotshot baseball players and wanted nothing to do with them!

Jake is a star player for the Rey’s and when Laci is hired as their new “Mommy” he agrees to a bet with his teammates to sleep with her so they can get rid of her like they have the previous seven. Only problem, he doesn’t plan on falling for her.

This is a funny story with

Bet On It is my first book by Elizabeth Perry and I am impressed. I was immediately hooked. I love the characters. They are so well written, I loved their personalities. There was a depth there that makes you really feel like you know them. The heat between Jake and Laci is smoking hot!! This was a fun read with a lot of heat. The storyline is written so fantastically well that I know you'll enjoy it too. I highly recommend it! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

I enjoyed this book and had it read all in one afternoon. There was a few times I wanted to slap both of the main characters, but in the end I was happy with how it turned out. Laci and Jake had a chemistry that isn't easy pulled off and even though he has a reputation, he still has a good heart. And Laci has been through so much in her life that she is a fighter, so watching the two of them go back and forth was fun to read.

Oh my. I loved Laci and Jake's story. I was hooked from the very beginning. I will be starting book 2 as soon as I write this review. I could never get enough of Mr. Hotshot. His character is just on fire from start to finish. I like Laci as well. All the small scenes
that lead up to falling in love are on point. This one is one of my favorites I've read. I'm a huge baseball romance fan and if you like it then you will Love this book. ENJOY!!

Laci has been hired to revamp the misfit reputation of the Carolina Rays MLB team as their Manager of Media or “MOM”. Part of her contract is to refrain from fraternizing with any of the team members. If she violates this clause, she’s immediately terminated.

Jake is the Rays’ all-star shortstop. Although he generally refrains from dipping into the company waters, he is tasked by the team with ensuring her quick departure. And he only has 30 days or he loses the bet.

I liked the story of Laci an

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I honestly thought it's going to be an over the top, stupidly cheesy book with an Alpha wannabee . totally wrong. it's was a great read,thoroughly enjoyed it. perfect ending! Jake is perfect. I loved everything about him in this book. especially the last few pages I had a smile on my face he was so adorable.

And just because I enjoyed my first read of this author I will be jumping right into her book "one little word" next

I read this book all in one day! I was addicted from beginning to end. What a great read. Laci doesn't want to get involved with a baseball player but she finds herself attracted to one. I don't blame her. Some of those guys are really hot. The plot was great and I loved the interaction between Laci and Jake. I'll have to read more of this series as it comes out!

2.5 stars but I’ll round to 3. This was a quick and fun read that was tampered by the lack of editing, especially in the second half of the book. Words were spelled wrong, wrong words were used, words were missing, etc.

Also, I have a really bad pet peeve of sports being portrayed incorrectly.

Hilarious, crazy, wild, sad

Laci and Jake had so much stacked against them and as per normal they overcame. But his jealousy was hilarious and her insecurities were sad. But they persevered and overcame

Good baseball story

Story focused on the leads. Just enough baseball to put plot into context. It seems like a setup to more stories with Jake's sisters or the other team mates on the Ray's team.

Ame la atracción ente Laci y Jake. Los personajes son muy fuerte y con pasados muy duros, más el de Laci.
Eso sí, super caliente.
Hermosa portada
