REVIEW - All Bets Are On by Cynthia Cooke

The Book
Release Date: 22 September 2014
Goodreads Link

A paranormal category romance from Entangled's Covet imprint... 

The Prince of Hell needs to get laid. Well, according to his minions, anyway. Now Derek Wescott, ruler of the Eighth Level of Hell, has been set up on an online date. And worse still, his minions are placing bets that Derek won't be able to entice the sweet yet plain Jaclyn Reynolds into bed before midnight. But Derek has no intention of losing the bet. Not now. Not ever.

Jaclyn, on the other hand, is in danger of losing everything. The charity she runs is in trouble, and she is desperate for cash. The moment she sees her absolutely gorgeous—and insanely wealthy—date, she knows she's in way over her head. She also knows his type all too well, and it will be a cold day in Hell before she ever gets into his bed. Yet Derek offers her a friendly wager: he'll give $10,000 to her charity if she can resist him.

The wagers have been set. The game has begun. And Derek will do just about anything to ensure that Jaclyn is completely—and infernally—his...

My Opinion  5 STARS

Awwww. The Prince of Hell has a soft side, and he finds it along with enticing banter and increasing lust with Jaclyn.

Derek, The Prince of Hell has been set up my his minions for a date because they believe he is crabby and unhappy and therefore believe that he has to rectify this by getting laid.  However the girl that they had picked is a mousy little thing who tells him straight off that he is not her type.

A man not used to being turned down, along with having a bet with his minions can't believe his luck and so makes a bet with Jaclyn that she can't refuse.

The banter between them is fun, the tension ratchets up very quickly becoming hot lust and sexual encounters.

The minions are quite funny in their own way and seem to both annoy and amuse the Prince.  This mother and his sister however are more than annoying.

Jaclyn is a witty strong woman with a mind of her own, but finds that the more time she spends with Derek, the more she wants him.  With betrayal from a friend, Jacyln sees that the only one helping her is the man that she is falling for.  However his sister drops a massive bomb on her head.

Loved the ending.  The surprise father for Derek and the happiness that they have created seemed lovely.  Also loved how he was standing up more to his mother and not caring so much about the things his mother say is cool.

This book went far too fast for my liking and I would love to hear what happens with Deidre and Trish.
