#review #NewRelease – The Bet (The Players #1) by Elizabeth Hayley

The Bet (Players, #1)

Jace “the Jet” Benning is a legend on the football field. And off. He has the arm, the charm, and the reputation of being the hottest player in the league.

Too bad Dr. Alessandra Mastrazacoma is not impressed.

With a busy schedule and a bruised heart, Alessandra doesn’t have time to date, but when she is lured into making a friendly bet with her best friend, she finds herself agreeing to go out with the next guy that asks…and to give him three shots, three dates, before pulling the plug.

Jace also has a friendly wager with his friends going, and it involves making sure the slightly klutzy, but very pretty, doctor will be his date to the biggest night in sports. With two wagers and two hearts on the line, will Aly and Jace win or are they betting to lose?




I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I love these ladies’ writings and have been a fan since their first book came out.

This book is a sweet and kinda predictable story about a guy and a girl who run into each other.  The girl, Alessandra, has no clue who the hottie, Jace, even is.   Then Jace is bet by a friend and he needs to get Alessandra to go out with him.  She is like not even close to thinking he is worth her time.   But her friends convince her to go out with the hottie and give him a chance.

The banter is funny between the characters but I didn’t feel the heat like I usually do and especially from their fist books.  One thing I did love about the story was Alessandra was kinda a hot mess.  LOL  She was super smart but kinda clueless in social situations…….like if you talked to her you would think AWKWARD which I thought was hilarious because the authors themselves say and do things that cause them to laugh at themselves.  So I kept thinking “Was the Elizabeth or Hayley who wrote that scene?”

I liked the story and if you are wanting to read something sweet and easy then this is a great book.  Its pretty angst free but has a fun feel to it.


Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands’ chagrin).

They live with their husbands and kids in a suburb of Philadelphia. Thankfully, their children are still too young to read.

Elizabeth Hayley’s writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: “I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.”
