Betting on You: A Danvers Novella (Danvers #4.5)

Living the life of a rich socialite was never in Mia’s plans, much to the chagrin of her wealthy parents.
She’s made her own way, studying computer science at Brown and snagging a coveted position with Danvers International after graduation. Her plan to avoid parental involvement seems to be going well until her mother buys her a date at a charity auction—with the hot resort owner who she’s been eyeing on her latest work project.

Seth never mixes business with pleasure, but something about Mia drives him to distraction. Giving into his desires for just one night will hopefully clear his head enough to keep his hands off her during office hours.

But when one mind-blowing night turns into weeks of flirtation, frustration, and companionship, Mia realizes that their workplace fling may be developing into more—and that Seth might be the perfect man she’s been waiting for…

My Review...

I absolutely adore the Danver series and this novella was a perfection addition to the series.

It was a quick fun read with some new characters. 

Seth was briefly in book 3 Fall For Me but here he is the main character. A typical billionaire bachelor ladies man who was looking for a relationship but once burned by Beth so is a little gun shy. But the minute he sees Mia bent over he and his little buddy are instantly alert.

Mia likes to have fun and when she meets Seth she knows he would be good to have an affair with just not a relationship especially with the work conflict. But meddling outside sources helps them bridge the attraction to one another only to have to come to a halt because of work.  The work deadline is near giving them the green light until Seth screws up BIG time. 

Sometimes novellas are hit and miss but with this one it had a good pace with the emotions and relationship development. My only let down was after Seth's screw up I felt the resolution phase between Mia and Seth was too quick and a bit swept over but otherwise it was a sweet Danver's story.
