Release Blitz & Review ~ The Break-Up Bet by Cat Carmine

Title: The Break-Up Bet
Author: Cat Carmine
Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 31, 2019
Never make a bet with a man who plays to win… 
Especially not a man like handsome, arrogant Connor Pratt. 
AKA the huge PITA who’s currently crashing in my spare room. 
AKA my brother’s best friend since they were about six. 
AKA the one guy who still makes me feel like an awkward tongue-tied loser.
But when Connor moved in, I got a glimpse of another side of him. Because, like me, Connor’s going through a nasty break-up. And, like me, he’s just doing whatever he can to get through it. 
Unfortunately, his method involves drinking alarming amounts of whiskey and watching a lot of, um … movies … that make every inch of my skin flush. 
I’m just trying to be helpful when I tell him that he should try my way: copious amounts of baked goods, sappy romantic comedies, and late nights spent whining with girlfriends. 
But I should have known Connor would take that as a challenge. 
Now, he says he’ll try my way of dealing with a break-up … but only if I agree to try his. Six months rent to the person whose method works best. 
We call it the break-up bet. And I’m going to win. Except right now, it feels like there’s a whole lot more at stake than just rent money…

Lucy Sweet is a baking blogger living in Brooklyn, where the rent is high and she needs a roommate. Her brother’s best friend, Connor Pratt, has moved to New York to get over a break-up. He decides to move into Lucy’s extra room.

Lucy and Connor make a bet to get over their break-ups doing it the other person’s way. So a girls way is to eat ice cream, watch romantic comedies and drink wine. A guys way is to immediately get back out there and watch porn. This part of the book was actually kind of funny.

Their relationship blooms slowly, mostly due to Lucy’s insecurities and daddy issues. Her dad abandoned their family when she was young and she’s convinced that being with a good looking guy like Connor will end poorly for her. This part of the book drove me nuts.

One thing I really enjoyed about this book was Lucy’s ability to equate everything to baking. And ingredients. It was really cute and endearing.

I really liked Connor. He was such a sweet guy and he was very good for Lucy. I liked Lucy as well, but her insecurities got a little old after a while. Her group of friends were quite funny, and I enjoyed them. I hope the next book is about her friend Tess or her brother Kyle, because I would read both of those.

I would recommend this book. It was fun and sweet.
