BOOK REVIEW: Don't Bet On It by J.L. Salter

Don't Bet On It
Kindle Edition, 73 pages
Published April 20th 2014 by Astraea Press

Goodreads synopsis: Chloe Watson wants to keep her place in line for the Electronics Super Sale, but really needs a restroom break. Will that handsome jogger be willing to stand still for fifteen minutes... for a $10 fee? Brett Hardy agrees, but bets it will take her much longer to return -- if Chloe wins, she owes him nothing... but if Brett wins, she has to accept his invitation to dinner.

I enjoyed this book ( I guess it is really a novella) but all the talk in the beginning from the character of Joan, best friend of Chole, almost made me want to stop reading. The last half of the story was much better than the first. I wish the main character would have been less judgmental but I guess that is what makes this story go forward.

The book was easy to read and had good flow. I think maybe Chloe needed another friend that supported her venture into this abnormal way of dating. I wish the story would have been longer because from what there is here in these 70-ish pages, it seems like this is only the beginning of the story. I will look forward to reading other titles from J.L. Salter.

I received this ARC (Advance Reader Copy) from Astraea Press in return for an honest review. I thank them and the author for the allowing me to read this title.
