Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie (2004)

SINGLE TITLE: Contemporary romance
SETTING: Contemporary US
HEROINE: 33 year old actuary

Minerva Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairly tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans, and it's not long before Min and Cal are dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kreme donuts, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a freakishly intelligent cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions that either one of them ever dreamed of. Including the biggest gamble of all--true love.

Rosario reviews Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie

Bet Me is a fairy tale romance with an edge. It is very much a romance, with the focus firmly on Min and Cal together, but it had many of the elements I enjoy of chick-lit, like a characters who are more realistic (no huge martyr complexes, no 30 y.o characters who are really 55 inside, no preposterous virgins, lol!), have friends and don't exist in a vacuum. The best of romance + The best of chick lit = a winning combination. (read more)
