Title: Bound to the Bachelor (Bachelor Auction Book 1)
Author: Sarah Mayberry
Publisher: Montana Born Books -Tule Publishing
Published February 20th, 2015
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Montana Born Books that I’ve read in the last six months and this one in no exception!
Molly’s son, Josh, has been injured in a serious accident resulting in him now being unable to walk. Her friends, led by Lily Taylor, want to help them so have arranged an event to help raise money to help modify their home to make it more accessible for Josh and to help them generally. The event is something special – they are going to auction off dates with some of the town’s most eligible bachelors! The men concerned aren’t quite sure how they’ve been talked, cajoled or manipulated into agreeing to this, especially the brother of Lily’s best friend, Beau Bennett.
Lily is a lady with a tragic past which few know about but it is about to come back to haunt her again as her step father has died and left her a tidy sum. She left home when she was sixteen to stop him being able to rape her so she certainly doesn’t mourn him, nor does she want his money. She knows that Molly wouldn’t accept it as a gift so decides to use it to bid for Beau, despite the fact that she knows he dislikes her.
Is this a case of opposites attract? Are they actually both fighting mutual attraction? Her legacy also means that someone else will return to her life – and not with good intentions! Can she escape his clutches?
This story is a fast paced, romance seasoned with a good dose of threat, mystery and danger. A winning recipe as far as I’m concerned! I liked that Beau was prepared to enable Lily learn how to use self defence to help protect herself as well as wanting to protect her.
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
