The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona #1)
ON SALE NOW!
Rachel Van Dyken is the New
York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling author of regency
and contemporary romances. When she's not writing you can find her drinking
coffee at Starbucks and plotting her next book while watching The Bachelor.
She keeps her home in Idaho with her Husband, adorable son, and two snoring
boxers! She loves to hear from readers!
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 is a modern Cinderella story at its
height of hilarious dysfunction. Brock
(Boring) Wellington 38, is the apple of his grandfather’s eye. Only because he’s a kickass basically at
least if you were to hear it from his twin other’s Bentley and Brant that is
exactly how they see it. Nothing less
they a yes man.
He became his grandfather’s yes man when
he found out their parents died. No one
knows why just that it he has terrible guilt over it. He can physically not say, “NO” to their
grandfather. No matter what it cost him
personally. Which, over the years has
been a lot.
When, his grandfather fell ill he took
over the business he never in a million years wanted and has resented ever
since. But does and is good at. Just like in his twenties he dressed in suits
and went to the college his grandfather wanted him too. Nothing ever for himself. He even dated the girls his grandfather
thought was best. So, when his
grandfather announced his was having a bachelor auction it didn’t surprise him
but what did is that he would auction him off for a date. He meets the girl of his dreams while the
announcement is made at the spring-off party.
Actually he rescues her. Like
Cinderella she leaves before he can get her full name or where she lives. She’s lost to him forever. All he can think about is his
It turns out Jane 22, has attended said
event under protest with her wanna-be evil older sisters. Esmeralda and Essence. Both lawyers if you can believe it. If you go by their behavior I would surely
say not. They are mean and both live
totally beyond their means and expect, (Plain) Jane as the call her, to bail
them out on the earnings she makes from her business, “Cinderella Cleaning.” A business her father left her before he
passed away, but it was becoming too much for her. With them taking their coworkers out for
drinks and charging it, charging for what they called fashion forward clothing,
and some other off the chart items.
On top of it all they left all the
housework for her and the cooking as well as errands. So, when they were at this over glam party
that she was trying so hard to hide in the shadows for. Although, Brock and Bentley had noticed her,
of the sisters decides she needs a rest and without asking grabs her to make
her dance with the other sister. Ripping
her dress and knocking her to the ground.
Brock seeing this happen goes to her rescue. She tries to stand breaking the heel of her
shoe and that is when Brock catches her scooping her into his arms and whisking
her away into the empty room set aside for them.
Brock sends Bentley off to Saks across the
street to buy her a new pair of shoes.
She’s so embarrassed. But Brock
feels so alive for the first time since he was twelve. They go back and forth about her shoes but
then notices she needs help maybe with her dress too. When Bentley returns with her shoes. She’s in shock since they are “Red Bottom’s”
she wants to scream because she knows they are worth more than her car. She’s attracted to Brock but knows he is
being auctioned off. She decides to
leave. He drinks himself into a stupor
knowing what he is facing with this auction.
But he asks his grandfather for a guest
list he needs to find “Just Jane” as she called herself. When his grandfather lays out the next phase
of his plan for him to go three weeks to his ranch the ranch that would become
his when he marries. His grandfather had
plans that were not something he wanted and his brothers were trying to force
his hand to get him to tell his grandfather “NO” but he was not following the
He doesn’t know it but his grandfather
hired Cinderella Cleaning too ready the house over the next three weeks. So the owner would be living on grounds
too. What a surprise for the both of
Can this be as simple and uncomplicated as
it sounds? Afraid not. See what his grandfather has up his
sleeve. Bentley and Brant add so much spice
to the story they just give it life.
They just make you giggle thinking about it. Can’t wait for the next promised book for
sure. I give this 5 stars. Provided by netgalley.com. Follow us at:

LET’S WELCOME THE AUTHOR OF:THE ONE KRISTIN VAYDEN Rad-Reader: Why this story? Where did the idea come from? Kristin: It started out as a bit of a satirical piece, that just kinda teased about some of the current stereotypes in romance. But once I started, I had this really clear idea of who "Kirby" was, and how he fit into the picture. Meredith, the main character, reminds me a lot of myself, while Kirby has several traits that are strong in my husband's personality, so once I started, the book really flowed quickly and easily.
Rad-Reader: The bantering, joking, and fighting filled with a friendship. Where did that come from? How did you find that happy medium? Kristin: It's always hard to find that happy medium, in any book. But with Kirby and Meredith, it was their history that gave the balance the book needed. The fact that Kirby and 'Merry' had this antagonistic history really added a depth to the book that gave me a lot of room to mess with their r…
