Bet On It by Jodie Slaughter ~ a Review

by MK French

Aja Owens meets the man of her dreams in several awkward situations, but getting to know Walker Abbott is going to be a problem. As for Walker, he thought the only worthwhile things in Greenbelt, South Carolina were the peach cobbler and his ailing grandmother. The two settle on a bingo-based sex pact to limit the attraction they feel for each other, but some things just can't be controlled.

Both Aja and Walker have anxiety, which is a point of understanding and connection for them. There isn't any pity for having panic attacks or worrying about how others perceive her, which added points for Walker. The two have an easy camaraderie from the start as well as physical attraction, putting this as a cute friends-to-lovers novel. They have the ability to calm down each others' anxieties; Walker has PTSD from how he grew up, and Aja has generalized anxiety disorder. Gradually, Aja makes new friends and Walker realizes how much he'd closed himself off when he left town for the big city. They have great chemistry when they become lovers, trying to keep it to bingo wins only. 

This is a romance novel, though, we know the attraction is there and they fight it off as they go out together (but don't call it dates, even though that's exactly what they're doing.)
