Winning the Bet Means Losing Love

Friends Nick Martin, Drew Wilson, and Mike McCauley are betting on love—and the last man left single wins.

With Nick’s competitive, determined nature, winning should be easy. After all, he managed to pay off his land debts before he turned thirty—ahead of schedule. But Nick didn’t count on Addy Wilson returning to town. Now, with the risk of losing love, are the stakes too high?

While his friends may succumb to wedding vows, Drew is sure he won’t. And Melody Markwell only confirms his resolve. She’s hard-headed, competitive. . .too much like himself. So why does Drew suddenly feel that winning her heart is worth losing his bet?

Mike has waited for this moment for years. But now that he finally gets a chance to take the girl he’s been pining over on a date, he’s let down. Then to his annoyance, clumsy Johanna Smith keeps running into him—literally. Is this God’s way of getting his attention?

All bets are off, but will these bluegrass bachelors give in to love?

Editorial Reviews

Audrey Harmse

I enjoyed reading this book. The word that popped in my mind while reading was "sweet". All three stories were just that. I especially enjoyed how the author wove clear and precise Christian values and principals into the story. If I had a teenage daughter this would be a book that I will personally buy for her to read.. It was good to read all three stories in one book. It gave the feeling of reading one full length book instead of 3 short stories, which equates to value for money for me.

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Each book was equally fun and enjoyable to read. I found myself surprised at a few of the events in the book and I found myself smiling throughout the whole thing. The men in this book are great Christian guys and each of them is hero worthy. This is a great book for anyone looking for a fun, light, Christian romance.

    What an enjoyable book! This book is, in reality, three books. These three books are based in Kentucky and follow the lives of four men who have grown up together. At one point in their lives, the men made a bet about marriage. The man who can keep from getting tied down with marriage the longest is the winner, with the other three having to pay for his wedding.

    When the first story begins, you discover that one man, Wyatt, has already succumbed and has married a high school crush named, Gracie. The first story covers the relationship of Nick and Addy and is so sweet.

    The second story covers Addy's brother, Drew and a woman named Melody. All of the stories are inspirational and this story, in particular, delves into the subject of why bad things happen in this world and why God would allow those things to happen.

    The third story revolves around Mike and Johanna. It is very much a story of courtship and finding the one God made for you. The author did an amazing job with these stories. I love how they flow one into the other. You see the relationships of each couple continue to grow in each novel and truly feel a part of this group of friends.

    I was provided with a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing, Inc. in exchange for my honest review.

    I don¿t think I have read any Romancing America books before, bu

    I don’t think I have read any Romancing America books before, but Bluegrass Bachelor’s was a great introduction to the series.
    Bluegrass Bachelors is a three-in-one collection that follows the stories of Wyatt, Nick, Drew, and Mike who all made a bet to not get married. The bet was that the last one who got married, the rest of the guys would have to pay for the wedding.
    When the first story begins, Wyatt has already gotten married. The rest of the book follows Nick & Addy, Drew & Melody, and Mike & Johanna.
    Addy had a childhood crush on Nick, but she was always just Drew’s kid sister to him. When she returns from college, Nick can’t help but be attracted to her. However, he’s a stubborn boy and doesn’t want to lose the bet. Will love win out for Nick and Addy or will Nick continue in his stubborn ways?
    Drew is extremely competitive. He doesn’t want a girl because he is determined to win the bet. When Melody comes to town, Drew finds a girl who is just as competitive as he is. Will his competitiveness win out or will he lay that aside in order to love Melody?
    Mike and Johanna bumped into each other several times before they start to see a pattern. When Mike asks Johanna out, they quickly find themselves attracted to each other. 
    I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Each book was equally fun and enjoyable to read. I found myself surprised at a few of the events in the book and I found myself smiling throughout the whole thing. The men in this book are great Christian guys and each of them is hero worthy. This is a great book for anyone looking for a fun, light, Christian romance.


    I received a free ecopy of this book from Barbour Books through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions stated are my own.
