{eARC Review} The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona #1) by Rachel Van Dyken

The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona, #1)

The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona #1) by

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 . .

{Rating} 4/5 I really liked it


A contemporary take on the Cinderella fairy tale.  Bachelor Auction is classic Rachel Van Dyken with her strong family bonds (good and bad), trademark banter, meddlesome secondary characters, great chemistry, and a happily ever after. I was sucked in by the story from the fairy tale beginning - poor Jane with a shoe mishap, to Jane and her prince at the ball.

I liked both Jane and Brock. They're wonderful and infuriating, they love their families fiercely, are devoted to them, sacrifice for them, and feel trapped by them. As much as they are drawn to each other (and forced together over and over again) their actions are guided by their pasts and they have to work through the guilt and obligations that shaped them.

If you're a fan of fairy tale retellings, a spicy romance, crazy families, and banter, give The Bachelor Auction a try.
