THE BACHELOR AUCTION by Rachel Van Dyken (January 31, 2017; Forever Mass Market Paperback; $7.99; The Bachelors of Arizona Book 1)
NOW IN PAPERBACK!
The first book in an all-new contemporary romance series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken.
Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.
Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.
Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . . .
This story is a twist on the Cinderella story. Jane is the baby sister and lives with her two older sisters who use her and boss her around. Tired of being dumped on she chooses to spend three weeks cleaning the estate of Brock Wellington. There is an attraction between the main couple and after some push and pull they get together. The story was cute and the writing was really good. My issue with Jane was that she was weak for far too long. I was waiting for her to have her "big moment" with her horrible sisters and it never happened. She need more of a backbone and it never developed. So that was a miss for me. Brock on the other hand dealt with his issues of his parents death and his overbearing grandfather, Charles. I really loved his brother Bentley and Brant.They had several laugh out loud moments. Oh and Nadine!! I loved her and the love/hate relationship she had with their grandfather, Charles. I can't wait for the rest of the books and this was an excellent start to a new series!
