If it were possible I’d be giving this book no less than 10 stars !
Mia’s writing style is amazing, her books – please note that, for me this was my second book written by her that I’ve read so far, but I intend to read everything she’s written – are very fast paced, highly addictive, action packed and well written. Bet On Me promises to keep you on the edge of your seat. Her talent really pays off and you can see that in her books. I can now declare myself her forever to be fan, no doubt !
Bet On Me makes no difference when it comes down to how fast things go. It captivated me right after the first chapter to be honest, and through almost half of it in only one night.
Alaya, depicts everything that most of us want to be and do in life. Completely fed up with what her family wanted for her, she sets up herself for an adventurous and self discovery journey. A journey in which she promises herself not to fall in love, since that is one thing she doesn’t want in life. Or so she thinks…On her train ride to France, she meets the amazingly gorgeous and funny guy, named Cole or Hazel, how she calls him.
Cole on the other hand, doesn’t want to rediscover himself. He tries to fend off his past, leave all the bad things he’s done, as far away as possible. He’s been a bad guy in the past…but a bad guy with good intentions.
Laughing and talking their entire trip, they don’t realize what is growing up between them. A very deep, unwanted attraction towards one another that both tend to deny. One thing is for sure, following Alaya everywhere will make Cole fall for her hard and fast and there’s nothing he can do about it. Everything is well, until someone from his past comes up on his tail and he finds himself again on the run, even if he doesn’t want to leave her behind. From that point on, Alaya will face the dangers he warned her about on the train.
