I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Montana Born Books that I’ve read in the last six months and this one in no exception! This is the second in the Bachelor Auction series and the background to all of them is that 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, but they have agreed to go on a date of their choosing with the highest bidder.
This story concerns Dr Rachel Cassidy, who has come back to Marietta after divorcing her cheating husband and becoming determined not to let romance into her life again. Her sister and friends attend the auction with her. Rachel is determined not to bid but her sister and friends actually buy her a very special birthday treat! One of the handsome bachelors up for auction is Rayan Henderson, a Parisian trained delectable pastry chef and his date is going to have a very special meal cooked up for them. He’s returned to Marietta to look after his Gram, who had brought him up after his parents were tragically killed because she has developed dementia and needs caring for. The meal won’t be a date for either of them – or so they say! But put together a couple who are mutually attracted to each other, some delicious food and desserts that are “better than sex” and you’ve a recipe for a great romance. Add in some spicy moments and misunderstandings and you’ve got a winner. As for the desserts that Ryan cooks up – they’ll have your mouth watering!
I love how these books are written by different authors yet all relate to each other with some characters, settings and events in common. Congratulations on whoever coordinated the series on doing a spectacular job!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
