If that man calls her one more time…
So what if Gabe Campos is a model-dating billionaire who gets Keisha Jacobs hotter than a Ferrari’s engine on the straightaway? He keeps pushing her to sell her family’s furniture business, but she’ll never give in—not unless she wants to give her father a second heart attack.
All Gabe should be thinking about is how he’ll finally get revenge on the man who killed his father. But when he meets the man’s daughter, Keisha, instead of focusing on destroying Jacobs Fine Furnishings, he can’t get her warm-whisky voice out of his mind.
Forced by a snow storm to spend the night together, their passion ignites. The next day, however, it’s back to business. The only way Keisha can save her family is to win a bet with the billionaire. But neither realized their hearts are part of the bargain…

(Sorry this is a late post, I completely forgot to post it Monday, but nevertheless it’s here now and that’s what counts)
Betting the Billionaire consists of a sweet, swiftly paced romantic story of very modern and somewhat realistic proportions. Keisha lives a simple life but she is forced into running her family owned furniture business basically out of guilt for her sickly father. She plans to take an interior decorating job (which is what she really wants to do in life) but has no idea how to break it to her father, especially with the rich and snobby yet gorgeously attractive Gabe Campos crawling down her throat about selling the business to him. However, her perspective as well as Gabe’s motives quickly change when he comes rollin into town and (cue cliche moment) they see each other for the first time.
Gabe and Keisha quickly develop strong yet not necessarily welcome feelings for one another, which of course conflicts with the fact that they are supposed to hate each other. Gabe has justified yet misconstrued reasons for hating her which were super aggravating to read at first because frankly his mindset/inner reasoning with himself was just stupid and unrealistic… sorry… and when the truth is finally revealed it is astronomical to his relationship with Keisha and a welcome relief from the unnecessary conflict. Thankfully the problem between the two doesn’t last very long at all since Betting the Billionaire really is a short book.
As the two of them get to know each other and the plot continued, I found myself intrigued by their feelings and liking the story in general. It was very short and sweet, a little too rushed in places to be fully developed but overall was just long enough to be considered a good read. If you’re between books and want a quick pick me up, I would definitely recommend you reading Betting the Billionaire!

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both.
