Posted in: Dee Tenorio, I love that bitch like a fat kid loves cake, reviews
Ahh, another blast from the past. I don’t know what it is, but I’m on a massive re-reading binge at the moment. I first read Dee Tenorio’s Betting Hearts in 2006, how amazing is that? Where has the time gone?
Anyway, I still enjoyed this book as much as I did the first time.
Without further ado, here’s the blurb
When Cassandra bishop’s ex-fiance shows up with the prerequisite, blonde haired, big boobed bimbo in tow, and announces that he’s getting married, she’s absolutely gobsmacked. Not because she’s still in love with him, but because, he broke their engagement a year ago, after telling her that he was gay.
Things go from bad to worse, when bastard ex-fiance tells cassandra, that the real reason he broke up with her was because she wasn’t woman enough for him. The swine!
Cassandra being the fiery tempered broad that she is, decides to rearrange his well-placed nose.
Devastated by this revelation, Cassie gets drunk as a skunk, and ends up at her best friend, Burke Halifax’s house at stupid o’clock. A ritual which Burke has long become familiar with.
For the past twenty-two years, Burke has made it his life’s work to make sure that nobody hurts Cassie. She’s the best friend he’s got, and he’ll be damned if a snivelling little fuckwit like bastard-ex-fiance is gonna hurt his friend.
Things start to get out of hand when bef issues a wedding invitation to cassie, out of spite.
Burke foolishly bets Cassie’s prized car that she’ll be the hottest woman at bastard-ex-fiance and big boobed bimbo’s wedding. Cassie herself is determined to prove that she is woman enough for any man, least of all her BEF, and thus the make-over of one Cassandra Bishop begins, with a few mishaps along the way, to keep things interesting.
Will burke and Cassie finally work out that they float each other’s boat, or will they keep looking for love in all the wrong places?
I. Loved. This. Book. (more…)
