Twenty-four year old Addison Allmon went from Jimmy Choo shoes to Cowgirl Boots in just a matter of a couple weeks.

Addison lost her license due to drinking and driving, got laid off from her awesome marketing job at the hottest company in Southern Florida, and lost her fiancé Carlos to the pool boy.

The year is coming to a horrible end and she’s forced to move back to her hometown of Norton, IA and live with her mother.

While back home, Addison runs into her old best friend Stephen. Out of nowhere, sparks begin to fly, and things between them start to heat up. The only problem is…

Stephen is engaged.

Addison decides the best way to drown her sorrows is in alcohol. So she heads out on the town by herself for New Year’s Eve.

Lucas, a sexy tattooed man, catches Addison’s eye. They dance, make jokes, and even make a playful bet that Addison accepts thinking all will be forgotten by morning–thanks to a night of heavy drinking.

Will Addison find new love with Lucas? Or will she find a way to win Stephen over once and for all?

Will Stephen have a change of heart and cancel his wedding for Addison? 
This was a quick book that ends in a cliffhanger that leaves a lot of questions in the air of what will happen next. It is almost like a prequel to me. It sets everything up and now your left wondering who Addison will end up with. I wanted to yell at Addison for her getting an DUI and thought at first I wasn’t going to like her because driving drunk is unforgivable to me. But I ended up really feeling for her about her job and finding out the guy she was engaged to never loved her like a man who is in love with you should and especially with everything that happens with Stephen. I really feel for her. I feel her emotions and I am hooked. Now, sexy Lucas is just what this girl needs and I hope then just one night. 
I thought the book was well written and a quick read. It is short but hooks you right away. I hope I don’t have to wait long for book 2 The Bet. Go One Click this one and get hooked just like I did! I gave this one 5 out of 5 stars.
