A Bet Worth Making by Heather Hildenbrand
(Book 2 in the Grayson County Series)
Jordan DeWalter has her future mapped out—build the most impressive architectural design portfolio in all of New England, and use it to one day open her own firm. But when her father unexpectedly passes away, her plans, and her heart, are broken. Now, if she wants the money once promised to her, she’ll have to return to the town that threw her family out over twenty years ago in order to get it.
If there’s one thing Jordan despises more than small towns, it’s small town people.
Casey Luck has spent his life skating by on charm and a devil-may-care attitude. Never one to take life too seriously, he’s kept secret his dream of building custom dirt bikes. Instead, he fills the role his family expects: tractor mechanic, farm handyman, comedic relief. But, deep down, Casey’s restless for something more.
Then he meets his new roommate: Jordan.
Their attraction is instant, but Jordan’s not fooled by the chemistry between them. When the summer is over, she’s out of here no matter what. In fact, she’s willing to bet on it.
Will their undeniable connection be the push they both need to break free of their pasts, or will Jordan’s wager on their failure ruin the future for them both?

Mama says you should read this book! Continuing in the tradition of the first Grayson County book, we have a story that’s all too familiar to me, as I grew up in a rural farm town where a lot of people wanted to escape to “the big city” while others couldn’t imagine a life outside of their little hometown. I love the way Heather takes these roles and flip flops them around, making the girls have their escape, briefly, then they come back home, even if it is begrudgingly. I love the witty and sarcastic humor and sweet building to steamy romances. She’s got a great start to this series and we can only hope there will be even more!
