She lives in Wiltshire, England, where she squashes her writing in between looking after her family, who have been taught not to notice that she's rubbish at housework.

That was my issue with this. Frankly, Harry is awful at the beginning of this book. He has no regard for woman and especially Alice. Setting up an office betting ring to see who can bed her first is the lowest of the low and it put me off of him and the story because I knew that if someone had done something like that to me I could never forgive them and I would struggle to get over it.
Other than that everything else was fine, the writing and pace were good but nothing amazing. I loved the London setting and enjoyed many aspects of the story but that dark cloud of betrayal hung over everything for me.
The characters were alright. Alice was likable but far to up tight, there were times where she got on my nerves a little bit but I did feel really sorry for her. Harry was fun and charming but his revelation about love and woman came a little too late for me. There was not enough time between that realisation and the end of the book for me to forgive him.
All Bets Are On is an enjoyable romance which I am sure other fans of the genre will enjoy but the whole `bet' aspect really put me off.
This is an above average story for this publisher. The author has a very pleasing writing style. While I liked Alice immediately, Harry was a little more difficult to connect with, he wasn't a very nice man. I was surprised Alice who seemed very on the ball didn't put two and two together. But I did enjoy Alice and Harry's relationship there were moments of humour and sadness. Of course it's obvious what's going to happen and I was totally looking forward to a Harry getting his comeuppance.
