Overview

All Ellie Harris wanted was a life of her own.

In a shortsighted decision, she follows her high school boyfriend to college, only to get cheated on and then dumped. And to add insult to injury her overprotective family is suddenly clinging to her again, fighting to control every part of her life.

Bad luck follows her hasty decision and when her roommate steals her identity and leaves town, Ellie is left to clean up a gigantic mess.

Fin Hunter insists Ellie owes him seven thousand dollars from an online poker game and he is determined to get it from her. Determined to keep her family out of her life, Ellie agrees to work for Fin in his illegal online poker operation. He’s given her six weeks to pay off the debt.

Soon sparks are flying between them and the only thing keeping her from falling for him is the debt she still owes and the money she doesn’t have.

At the end either Ellie will have to pay the mistaken debt or bet in the dark that her feelings for Fin will be worth more than the money.

Meet the Author

I was born and raised in Nebraska, but spent my college years traveling the world. I fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka. But I came back home to marry my high school sweetheart and now I spend my days raising our growing family. In those few spare moments I have, I am either reading or writing Young Adult Fiction, because I am obsessed with it.

Five other things I'm obsessed with right now:
1. My Kuerig Coffee Machine. Genius.
2. 90's music. Oh man, the 90's speak right to my soul.
3. Chocolate smelling body wash. Who doesn't want to walk around smelling like a bakery?
4. Colored Chapstick. And if it's Dr. Pepper Flavored, that's kind of my nirvana.
And.
5. Spotify. It's like the mixed-tape of this generation and I have probably three hundred hours of music on there. Can't get enough.

    Loved it!

    Go all in and read this one! While Bet In the Dark is different from her previous work, the love story is in true Higginsin form.

    How Cute

    ***4 Stars***
    Oh what a cute Original Love Story...The almost ending made me cry. I just wished for a better Ending (although I did not want it to end) or a Epilogue.
    **231 pages**
    **Some hot making out (nothing real explicit)**

    I really, really liked this book. It is a YA story, but the chemistry between Ellie and Fin was fantastic. I fell in love with Fin Hunter right along with Ellie. Such a good story. I'll probably read it again eventually. I think Rachel Higginson is a fantastic story teller. Go read her Star Crossed Lovers series if you love good YA stories.

    Great Story!

    I really enjoy Rachel Higginson's books. She lets the reader get inside the head of the main character and experience their emotions in a real and honest way.

    Bet In The Dark is a good solid story I will read multiple times to re-live the feeling of new romance. Fin Hunter's a dream guy!

    I have to also recommend Higginson's Restless Magic series. I've read all the books three times each, and I miss the world of Eden and Kiren when I'm finished.

    oh my! I loved this book! It took a chapter or two to really get into it, but then I couldn't put it down! I absolutely fell in love with the characters! That Fin is just dreamy! I love most of Rachel's books, but this may be my new favorite! It is amazing and sucks you right in!

    Absolutley loved this book!! I was drooling over Fin from page 1! I hate whinny girls which is what I thought I was going to have to deal with but I am glad when she stopped holding back. I was also happy for a change of pace with a stand alone book, no more having to wait to find out what happened!!

    Bet i would read it again.

    This was just the book I needed! Funny, witty and just the right amount of sarcasm that I was waiting for Rachel to unleash.I laughed out loud a time or two. I was excited to find out the release of her first contemporary piece, she never disappoints. Bet In The Dark will have you rooting for a intriguing romance the whole time, and if you love a man that takes a challange and runs with it you will fall for Fin over and over again.

    Ever had your identity stolen? How about have a hot but strange

    Ever had your identity stolen? How about have a hot but strange guy comes knocking on your door for the 7k that you apparently owe him, even though you’ve never actually met the dude. That’s what happened to Ellie Harris. And yet again Rachel Higginson hits a home run. This book I simply could not put down. Once I started I could not put it down. Sweet and racy, funny and moving. Simply put another favorite to add to my list, and yet again by the same amazing author, Rachel Higginson!

    Honestly, this was going to be the first book I was going to pass up by Rachel because the overview just didn't appeal to me BUT... I am soo happy I read it! I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the star-crossed series

    Honestly, this was going to be the first book I was going to pass up by Rachel because the overview just didn't appeal to me BUT... I am soo happy I read it! I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the star-crossed series. I loved Fin and Ellie! Sometimes Ellie got to be a bit too overdramatic, but not much. I haven't been disappointed by Rachel's books yet!! Excited for more!!

    Another slam dunk! A fast read with fun characters and just enough heat. Rachel always keeps me laughing with the witty dialogue.

    I really liked Bet in the Dark! It was really nice to read a book that relates to me. I am also in college and it's always fun to read books closer to your age group! It was funny, witty, and full of romance!
