After a bet with his brother, Liam O’Connor has to date the next woman who walks into the pub. And he’s all in, because his pub is on the line. What he didn't expect was Casey Meadows, who at first glance with her big glasses and bulky sweater looks like a woman who has many, many cats—but her wit and smile make him wonder what’s underneath her bulky armor.

Casey Meadows aka sweet romance author Cassie O’Brien is about to lose everything. As in, her writing career is going down the drain because she can’t write the sexy stuff that’s selling these days. She needs inspiration in the worst way. That’s when she walks into the wrong pub at the right time. Sexy owner Liam is just what the writing doctor ordered. Her whole body is feeling inspired—and when he makes a proposal she can't refuse—he’s all in. Oh, hell yes. Best. Sex. Of. Her. Life. Thanks to Liam, she's about to write a best-seller.

But having an erotic romance alter ego is nothing compared to the real secret Cassie is hiding—and that one could destroy everything.

This was a cute and steamy read. I was expecting the cute – with the socially awkward heroine who’s a closet romance writer (I have a soft spot for these heroines) and the sexy as sin bartender (gruff exterior but big ol’ teddy bear for his h?. Yes, please!) – but the level of steam this story pa... ...more

3.5 stars
There are certain tropes/characters in romance that I cannot resist. Kinda grumpy heroes, nerdy girl writer heroines, secret bets, one night stand that turns into more, y’all know what I mean. You see those special little hints in a well worded blurb and you find yourself one-clicking be... ...more

Bet Me to Stay by Candace Havens a five-star read that you would bet the house on. I will be honest in parts this was only a four-star read but overall it deserves five full stars as there was just so much drama.

By Pbkreader June 17, 2019

Cassie and Liam are two characters that I didn't want to leave behind. Cassie is funny, honest (for the most part) and in need of some good loving. Liam is a gorgeous hunk with all the right moves. Oh, and let's not forget that Irish accent!
Please, please keep writing Ms. Havens...I'm hooked!

This book had me at the synopsis. I had high hopes, and boy were they met. When I first started reading this, I knew it was going to have some steam. But lord have mercy, it went from 0 to 100 real quick. (I’m not complaining) I mean what is better than a sexy Irish man dirty talking? Not much in... ...more

Talk about a heat wave! Deliciously sinful, decadent, and worth the sweet tooth.

Liam is the type of man any woman would crave. Sweet, sexy, supportive, a smile to rival any, and boosts Cassie's confidence, and lets not forget the Irish accent. He becomes the muse for romance writer Cassie after... ...more

By Rachel June 26, 2019

Bet Me to Stay is the first book I have read by Candace Havens and it won't be the last. This book wasn't super deep and the characters definitely jumped into a relationship with no build-up, but that doesn't really matter to me. Sometimes you need a book that is a light, fun, quick read and this... ...more

Watching his brother Finn constantly catch feelings for women, propose, and then bail, is going to lead to a disaster. Liam knows one of these days he's going to make down the aisle... which could mean that when it eventually implodes like all his other "spur of the moment" relationships, their p... ...more

By Regina June 17, 2019

I loved this book. This is not a style I usually read. I like suspense and adventure in my books. Cassie is a author that is so unsure of herself. No self-confidence. She meets Liam and boy howdy do the sparks fly. Can these to overcome the secrets between them, to find a true love of their own?... ...more

By Hayley June 19, 2019

While this book does fall under the erotic category it had lots of contemporary romance vibes to it which I really enjoyed. This story was well written and not overshadowed or hidden by the dirtier parts of the story. While it was a quick read it really left me connected to the characters. I enjo... ...more

I love that Cassie was a writer/loved books but she wasn’t what you’d expect people to think when you say bookish (and I was like YES FINALLY, because a lot of my non-bookish friends bought into the stereotype too - before they really got to know me haha ;) )



I adored the relationship between Finn... ...more
