You may not have heard of me, but no worries. Detroit knows me. I’m the old money that new money tries to be. Elite company that you wish you could be in. But if you’re ever lucky enough to get to see my life up close, you’d find that what I want more than anything is to be like you. No privileges. No status. No trust funds. The life I have, the same you seek, is costing me and I knew of only one way out. My escape was the reason for my downfall. Death. When I’m finally close to it, I meet the man who attempts the impossible. He tries to convince me to live. She is a job, the final payment for a debt owed. I’m not supposed to want her, but I have to have her. When she offers me money to kill her, I make her a deal instead. Now I’ve got seven days to change her mind or risk losing her forever. Convincing Bet to live will be the toughest job I’ve ever had. The payoff will be worth it… as long as we both live to see it.

Review by Jenny
4 1/2 Stars
I was given Convincing Bet for an honest review.  This is my first time reading from Author K.S. Adkins. I have to say this book was a little hard to get into at first. Once I got past 4% it started to get interesting. 

Bet Lennox  is a strong , rich, loving  woman that had everything going for her.  She had a husband, a beautiful daughter & parents that loved her.  Then one day in a blink of an eye it was taken from her.  Since then she has made some not so good choices in life.  She just wants to forget.  She feels guilty for living when her loved ones are gone.  Then she meets Rio on Mackinac Island.

Rio is a man on a mission. In order to get Adrian off his back he’s taken a job. His job is to bring Bet back to Adrian.  The plan was never to get involved with her. But when they get stranded on this island for days he learns so much about Bet.  Now that he knows her story his mission is to change her mind before time runs out. Can he make Bet see that life is worth living even after a tragic loss.

This story is full of emotion & there were times I found myself laughing.   I give it 4 ½ stars. I just find there was a lot of sex. I seemed that every time Bet & Rio was in the same room together that’s all they did. 

Sitting outside I wondered if I'd ever be warm again. No matter what I did, I was always so fucking cold. No, I'm not anemic; what I am is lost and alone. My family had kept me safe and warm. Without them, I've been eternally frozen. When I opened my eyes and realized I'd lived another day, the disappointment was crushing. Why can't I just be with them? I served no purpose here, I was in the process of giving my money away so what use was I? How much money did I even need? Even if I lit it all on fire, I make enough on my investments to live comfortably for three lifetimes. Only, I didn't even want to exist in this one.

Some people dream of being a doctor, teacher or social worker when they grow up. 
Not me. 
I wanted to be a sniper, ninja, rapper and a stripper (all at once). Since none of things happened to me, I write stories.
Stories about bad ass women (because duh, women are bad ass) the men that show up for the ride with a bunch of awkward sex thrown in.
I am dialogue heavy.
I swear a lot.
I like violence.
I like angst.
I am slightly insane.
I do the things I write about, consequences be damned.
I toe the line of morally corrupt and do it with a smoke in my mouth and a drink in my hand.
My name is KS Adkins, nice to fucking meet you.
