She's everywhere.

Ex-wife.

Love of his life.

The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.

And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.

Brant Wellington was certain of three things:

Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.

He really was losing his F-ing mind.

And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

              

The Bachelors of Arizona series is a guilty pleasure I can’t regret reading. It’s ridiculous but so sort of campy and funny.  The characters are impossible and larger than life.  Even the side characters have personality and are developed well enough to know them. The relationship between the brothers is hilarious, but even more Grandpa and now “Grandma Nadine.”

This was fun and sexy. Even though there is always some character angst over some issue, they eventually grow into dealing with their past. There is a lot of grief in the history of this couple; they were married very young. Nikki has managed well considering everything. Brant is a hot mess, using alcohol to block out all feelings.

I especially enjoyed Cole, well not at first, as he was Nikki’s boss and friend. He plays a key role. I wouldn’t mind seeing another book featuring him!  As crazy as this series is, I loved it for the laughs and the feels and the heat. I really recommend it.

 

Giggle-worthy quote:

 “He’s not…” Her eyes widened. “Oh hell, he is technically our boss, isn’t he?”

“Sleeping your way to the top. I’ve never been prouder to call you friend.”

              I seem to time the reading of the Kindle version of books in the Bachelors of Arizona series with the release of the mass  market paperback.  I can’t remember exactly how I ended up reading the first one; I think I was trying to work with the publisher and they offered it to me. Anyway, it makes zero sense I am reading them. They use two tropes which are my least favorite (one is the billionaire guy). I won’t mention the second as it is too spoiling. BUT I love them! Each book is also a very loose fairy tale retelling. The Bachelor Auction was a Cinderella story. The Playboy Bachelor is sort of Beauty and the Beast. Rich, hot […]


Audio Review: The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken

Audio Review: The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken

               This is a modern day Cinderella story. Which means it is a classic billionaire guy rescues penniless gal. This is not my favorite troupe. At All. I was offered both the ebook and the audio for review and decided on the audio. So how did this work out? I was pleased with The Bachelor Auction mostly. The characters were either well-developed or overblown caricatures of a cliche type. Our Cinderella, Jane, is easy to love. She is hard-working, kind, compassionate and honest, even when treated badly. Her sisters are unrealistic stereotypes but it works. Our prince charming, Brock, isn’t a bad guy either. He’s always been a serious hard worker, trying to do what’s right for his family. His […]
