Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie
Minerva Dobbs just got dumped by her boyfriend. So when she overhears her now ex-boyfriend betting serial dater Calvin Morrisey that he can’t pick her up, Min is just furious enough to let Calvin win the bet. She didn’t expect Cal to win her over with good food and even better kisses. Bet Me was amusing, romantic and witty. I especially liked the banter between Cal and Min. Ms. Crusie’s writing style is fresh and her characters were fun and believable. Overall, it is good way to spend a couple of hours.

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
Review: Very nice little beach read! I read this book in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ms. West created a contemporary, YA-romance/coming-of-age story that felt fresh. Yes, I knew that it was going to have a happy ending but it still felt original. I especially liked the heroine, Caymen Meyers. She was sarcastic and real. I think my only complaint—and it’s minor—would be that Caymen worked in and spent a lot of time in a porcelain doll shop. Every time I read about the dolls, I would picture some in my head and it was a little creepy. But who knows, maybe Ms. West meant for her readers to be thrown off-guard by the dolls.
