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—she'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.

Keep your fan handy and crank up the AC, you’re gonna need it because Bet Me to Stay is one seriously hot read!
The setting is simple, Liam bets his brother he can’t keep it in his pants for a month and in exchange, he has to date for the same amount of time. Casey is in desperate need of some sexy time inspiration as the new book she’s writing totally sucked in the hotness department. Perfect timing means Casey walks in Liam’s pub at exactly the right moment, and as soon as she is sitting at the bar their chemistry comes alive.
Neither of them is looking for a relationship but their attraction is too powerful to just ignore, so they enter into an agreement. Liam will… keep enriching Casey’s sexual knowledge for as long as they have fun together. No matter how good they are together though, when they’re both keeping secrets shit is bound to hit the fan eventually. And everything they’ve shared will be in jeopardy.
Casey starts off as a mixture of shy innocence and naughty vixen. She was funny and smart but had a few self-confidence issues in the beginning. Fortunately, Liam helps her out with that.
Liam was what Irish guys dreams are made of. Broody, intense and sexy as all get out, he had a dirty mouth that paired with the accent was absolute perfection. The fact that he was in complete denial of what was happening between Casey and him (feelings, lots and lots of feelings) made me want to slap him upside the head a time or two, but I have to say the guy really knew how to make up for his mistakes.
Fun, engaging, with great banter and incredibly hot and naughty shenanigans, Bet Me to Stay was an absolute treat to read I enjoyed from top to bottom.
