A high-flying investor
New Yorker Jake Harrington loves a lot of things about living in London. His lucrative hedge fund job. The way British women melt at the sound of an American accent. His just-sex arrangement with his gorgeous roommate, Jess. And, oh yes, being thousands of miles away from the girl who betrayed him.
His sexy British flatmate
Jess's deal with Jake suits her fine. No commitments, no risk of being hurt again, just friendship and mindblowing pleasure. And friends do each other favors, like agreeing to go on a trip to New York where Jake will have to face his past.
And a vacation that will change everything…
What friends shouldn't do? Suddenly find themselves feeling something much more complicated than simple lust. When "no strings" is no longer enough, will Jake be willing to take the ultimate gamble?

5 Elvis shaped stars for HEDGING HIS BETS!
Jake Harrington loves his life in London. The New York accent and high paying job make him irresistible to the ladies, and his NSA arrangement with his roommate Jess is perfect. No commitments, no promises, no problem, right? When the two travel to New York though, that's where things get complicated, and their just-sex relationship morphs into something more. Jake thought he was irrevocably damaged by his past relationship with Emily, but now that he's reconnected and reconciled with her, he realizes it was a pale intimidation of what he feels for Jess. Jake may be able to man up and tell her how he feels, but Jess is even more skittish than he is, so he'll have to tread carefully if he doesn't want to send her running.
Wooo! I've been anxiously awaiting Jake's story, and I wasn't disappointed! HEDGING HIS BETS, book 3 in the Brits in Manhattan series, was one delicious read from beginning to end! I am obsessed with the chemistry between Jake and Jess and the connection between the entire group of friends. I adore books I feel like I could jump into and become BFF's with all the characters, and HEDGING HIS BETS is one of those. This whole series by Ms. Carter is just fabulous, the character development is brilliant, the storylines are excellent and the sex is spectacularly hot. As always, I'll be anxiously awaiting more from this talented author!
Bottom Line: OM/OW situation, no sharing; some condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; no violence/murder.
