Bet The Farm Book Summary

Short-Summary:

Olivia Brent has one summer to save the dairy farm she just inherited.

But there’s one problem, and it’s not her lactose intolerance.

Jake Milovic.

The brooding farmhand has inherited exactly fifty percent of Brent Farm, and he’s so convinced the city girl can’t work the land, he bets she can’t save it in a summer. 

Determined to prove him wrong, Olivia accepts what might be the dumbest wager of her life.

His strategy to win seems simple: follow her around, shirtlessly distracting her between bouts of relentless taunting. And it’s effective—if his dark eyes and rare smiles aren’t enough to sidetrack her, the sweaty, rolling topography of the manbeast’s body would do the trick.

What they don’t know: they’ll have to weather more than each other. 

Mysterious circumstances throw the farm into disarray, and with the dairy farm in danger, Olivia and Jake have to work together. But when they do, there’s more to fear than either of them imagined.

Because now their hearts are on the line, and the farm won’t be the only casualty if they fail.

    Okay, a lactose intolerant girl inherits half a dairy farm...it's only going to get better after such a great beginning. Per usual, Staci Hart writes with plenty of soul, infusing BET THE FARM with wit, whimsy, and all of the feels, and I just loved it. Staci has plenty of tropes going with BET THE FARM...small town romance, opposites attract, resisting the attraction, city girl versus country boy, and they all meld together perfectly in this romantic comedy that had me from the very beginning. Even though Jake and Livi were fighting the very obvious pull between them, I couldn't wait for them to get it together and, well, get together. BET THE FARM couldn't have come at a better time. This is the kind of book that just hits all of the marks, and is a pure pleasure to read. Book slump? Read this book. Need a book to lift you out of the winter doldrums? Read this book. Just love a good rom-com that will deliver all of the 'com,' but with plenty of emotion? Read this book. And when you do read it? Enjoy. ❤️

    Emotional and Heart-wrenching! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic’s Read So if Staci Hart set out to keep me emotional the entire story... she totally won. Olivia and Jake have to work together to turn the farm around. Each of them have their eyes set in how to do this, but they both have trouble seeing each other’s path to get to that goal. It causes a lot of head and heartaches. I enjoyed everything about this book and would love to see more farm stories from Staci Hart! 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Farm-girl Stars!

  • Super Cute Small Town Romance

    Bet the Farm was a super cute, funny and emotional enemies to lovers story. I devoured this book as quickly as I could because I was always wanting to see what was going to happen next. Olivia Brent has been living in New York, but comes back to her family’s farm in a small California town when her grandfather passes away. He leaves her half of the farm. The other half is left to the broody farmhand, Jake. Olivia and Jake have different ideas on how the farm needs to be ran to make it more profitable. I enjoyed watching them butt heads and their witty banter. I laughed a lot while reading their story. This book was really well written and I think everyone will enjoy it.

    Enemies to Lovers Small Town Brooding Farm Hand Second Chance Romance What's not to love about this book? Reading about Olivia's attempts to become a farm girl were hilarious and totally worthy of a Hallmark movie. Jake was frustrating in his attempts to keep things on the farm the way they've always been. He was moody, mean, and contradictory in his feelings towards Olivia. The two butted heads more than they needed to in the beginning, but when a bet comes out that she will leave at the end of the summer if she can't pull the farm around, the story picks up and gets so much better. It's a fun, sweet, and emotional story with just a hint of angst.

    City girl vs country boy. Olivia inherits half a dairy farm. Jake inherited the other half. He makes her a bet. What could go wrong? Fun, flirty, just what I needed to read. Recommend. Just say yes.

    Rating closer to 3.5 This book is full of emotion and humor. Staci Hart really makes you feel what the characters are going through at times. My reduction in the rating is mostly for the feelings brought up when they talked or thought about Pop. Olivia moved away from the farm at a young age to stay with her aunt in the city. Even though she has enjoyed her life there, as soon as she learns about her grandfather she moves back to try and make his family farm more successful. Jake has become a grumpy old man set in his ways. The farm has been his whole life since Pop first made him apart of his life and family. He wants to make the farm a success but isn’t willing to take chances to get there. Of course they butt heads on their journey, must learn to work together to obtain their goal as well as deal with lingering feelings from years prior. Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Bet the Farm by Staci Hart was such a fun and charming read. Olivia has inherited half of the family farm. The farm is struggling and she needs to turn it around to save it, however, the other half went to Jake. Olivia is happy and carefree to the broody and grumpy Jake. Jakes does not believe Olivia has what it takes, but she is determined to prove him wrong. They shared such great chemistry and just loved watching them interact. A small town romance that was light and sweet. A truly fun rom com with great characters and a captivating story. Happy reading!

    Bet the Farm is everything and more I expect from Staci Hart . It’s absolutely adorable , fun and emotionally satisfying. From the mesmerizing writing to relatable characters this book was everything. I loved Olivia and Jake . Olivia moves back after her grandfather’s death to take care of the farm . She finds out her grandfather left the farm to both Jake and Olivia. Jake was the perfect grumpy hero . He was not expecting Olivia to stick around. It was such a fun read . I loved everything about this story. Don’t miss this fun and captivating story.

    I love farm books. Maybe it’s my own upbringing and current lifestyle that makes these types fun to read, that there can be romance in a conventional setting that makes it so perfect. These characters are EVERYTHING. I love Livi’s optimism, her spirit and joy for life was infection and wonderful to watch. Jake was the perfect grouchy farm turned soft with love and I swooned for him so hard. Staci Hart has a gift and it’s one that—thank goodness— keeps on giving.
