New Adult Spotlight! The Reluctant Bachelorette by Rachael Anderson

I have my adult blog, Clean Adult Fiction, where I post all of my wonderful clean adult reads, but sometimes a book is so wonderful that I have to share it here on my teen blog too. The main character is 24 so this would be in the “New Adult” genre. I was part of the tour with an AWESOME giveaway so CLICK HERE to see my blog tour post with the giveaway!

Title: The Reluctant Bachelorette
Author: Rachael Anderson
Publisher: HEA Publishing
Release Date: September 2012
Pages: 300
Series: none
5 STARS: I LOVED IT!!!

Unknowingly cast as the bachelorette for her town’s charity event, Taycee Emerson wants out. Especially when she discovers her old teenage crush, Luke Carney, is one of the bachelors and it’s up to the viewers–not her–to decide which bachelors stay or go.

Coerced into participating, Taycee does what any self-preserving girl would do. She launches a subtle attack on Luke’s good name with the hope of getting him voted off the show. Unfortunately, Luke’s an eye-for-an-eye kind of guy, and when he discovers what she’s up to, it means revenge.

But when their pranks go south, will they screw up any chance they have at a future together, or will they be able to forgive and forget and prove that love really does conquer all?

My Thoughts:
Wow I loved this book!! It was the cutest sweetest romance!!! If a clean romance is something you’re interested in (you’re reading my blog so it probably is) then this is the book for you.

Let’s start with the unique story line of the romance. Taycee (I love that name by the way) was twenty-four and an owner of a florist shop in the small Colorado town she grew up in. Luke was her older brothers best friend and her friend too. He left for college when she was 14, and she never seemed to get over her huge crush on the guy. I loved that! How many of us had huge crushes on guys 3 or 4 years older than us when we were 14? I know I did. I didn’t continue the crush after they left high school though, but I wasn’t best friends with the guys like Taycee was with Luke. I just loved how I could really relate to the memories of her youth emotions. So it’s been 10 years since Luke left, and now he’s back in town! Dun dun dun. Hahaha I loved it. I’m sorry if this review is full of giddy-ness. 🙂

The story also revolved around the fact her town was trying to save their farmers. The farmers in their town were losing profit and needed a way to raise money to change their farming methods. The Bachelorette show was a way to earn money for the farmers so there are a lot of emotions Taycee deals with throughout the show. She had a lot of pressure on her for different reasons which I think really added to the depth of the story.

All I can say is I loved this book! I recommend The Reluctant Bachelorette to anyone who loves a unique, beautiful, squeal worthy romance.
