Olivia Brent has one summer to save the dairy farm she just inherited.

But there’s one problem, and it’s not her lactose intolerance.

Jake Milovic.

The brooding farmhand has inherited exactly fifty percent of Brent Farm, and he’s so convinced the city girl can’t work the land, he bets she can’t save it in a summer. 

Determined to prove him wrong, Olivia accepts what might be the dumbest wager of her life.

His strategy to win seems simple: follow her around, shirtlessly distracting her between bouts of relentless taunting. And it’s effective—if his dark eyes and rare smiles aren’t enough to sidetrack her, the sweaty, rolling topography of the manbeast’s body would do the trick.

What they don’t know: they’ll have to weather more than each other. 

Mysterious circumstances throw the farm into disarray, and with the dairy farm in danger, Olivia and Jake have to work together. But when they do, there’s more to fear than either of them imagined.

Because now their hearts are on the line, and the farm won’t be the only casualty if they fail.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Bet The Farm is so much fun! Jake and Olivia’s story is magical! From the first page until the very end, I was completely hooked on this second-chance romance. Does one kiss make it a second-chance story? Well, it’s definitely an enemies-to-lovers tale with lots of swoon, plenty of snark and a HEA that had me in tears.

When Olivia’s grandfather dies, she inherits half of her family’s dairy farm. The other half goes to broody, sullen Jake — Pop’s right-hand man who was like a grandson to him. Livi doesn’t want to give up her birthright, and Jake just wishes she’d go back to the city. As they work through their grief, they also attempt to work together in saving the farm. Jake is resistant to every one of Olivia’s “big city ideas” and his stubbornness causes her endless frustration.

I loved the history between these two, and how they were both suffering after Pops died. That common ground between them leads to a deep connection, and this story was so well-written as they cross the bridge from hating one another to being head over heels in love. This story is sweet, playful, full of sass and snark. The chemistry between Jake and Livi jumps off the page, and as much as I couldn’t wait to see what happens next, I didn’t want this story to end!

I was sad to see Bet The Farm come to an end! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
