The Reluctant Bachelorette by Rachael Anderson, Book Review
Luke Carney has no idea what possessed him to move back to Shelter Springs, Colorado, to set up his veterinarian practice. His parents have long since left, the small farming community is on the brink of extinction, and only one close friend from his childhood remains--Taycee Emerson, his best friend’s little sister, who isn’t so little anymore.
Then there’s the matter of Shelter’s Bachelorette, an online reality dating show created to raise some much needed funds for the town.
Unwittingly cast as the bachelorette, Taycee wants out, especially when she discovers that Luke, her childhood crush, is back in town and will be one of the bachelors. To make matters worse, it's up to the viewers--not her--to decide which bachelors stay or go. And they all seem to like Luke.
Unwilling to let him break her heart again, Taycee launches a subtle attack on Luke’s good name with the hope of getting him voted off the show. But she’d forgotten that Luke's an eye-for-an-eye kind of guy, and when he discovers what she's up to, it means revenge.
I grabbed this book when it was free one day on Amazon. I have had my eye on it and was excited when it went on promo! I was not disappointed from all the hype I have heard about the book! I loved Taycee, she was refreshing and forward. She loved her friends and family fiercely. When she found out she was tricked into being the town's bachelorette to try to save the farmers, she said yes, even though she really wanted to say no. Can we say people pleaser? Her old crush Luke comes back to town and she tries everything to push him away because she feels so strongly for him. Gosh she was frustrating at times! Luke was handsome and unsure of his feelings. He just wanted everything to be the same way it was ten years ago! At certain points, I could have smacked both Luke and Taycee and said "Wake up and see what is really going on!" But I guess that makes for a good story :)
I loved The Reluctant Bachelorette....it is an awesome contemporary romance in a small town. I loved the vibe and flow and this was one I didn't want to put down! I am a new fan to Rachael Anderson and cannot wait to get my hands on another one of her books! If you like small town drama and if you like the show, The Bachelorette, you will most likely love this book!
