She needed him to guard her body, in more ways than one…

Ex-Army sergeant and security expert, Cody Matthews recently walked away from his company to work The Lucky B Ranch just outside of Marietta, Montana. The ranch is his refuge, but his hiding out is short-lived when he’s recruited into the Marietta Bachelor Auction and his high school ex-crush bids a small fortune to spend one weekend with him.

Hollywood starlet, Hayley Dawn O’Malley has had decent, honest, sexy Code Matthews on the brain ever since she left Marietta after high school to pursue her dreams. But now she’s back in town and someone is threatening her. Code, a natural-born protector, is the only man she trusts to keep her safe.

Spending their weekend date in a remote cabin, Code plays the role of reluctant bodyguard, yet Hayley isn’t going to let the tormented man deny his feelings for her, no matter the threat to her body or her heart.

Cody Matthews has returned to Marietta, Montana searching for his next steps in life. For the time being he is helping his Uncle on his ranch while he desperately tries to stay away from Hayley, who has just returned to Marietta and asks for his help.

Hayley is a Hollywood Oscar winner who comes back to Marietta to deal with the death of her grandmother. While in town, she is being targeted and asks her high school love to keep her safe. Cody initially refuses to help her, trying to stay away from the memories she brings with her of their last time together, back in his Uncle’s barn in high school.

During a bachelor auction to raise funds for a rooftop helipad for the local hospital, Hayley bids $10,000 for a weekend with Cody. They both quickly realize the sparks are still there all these years later.

This was a romantic, enjoyable quick read. Hayley and Cody are a cute couple and you knew instantly they belonged together. I love the little plot twist regarding who really is stalking Hayley. I enjoyed this book and look forward to book #2 in the series.

I give Bachelor for Hire by Charlene Sands 4 stars!

Reviewer: Kim

When Navy firefighter Nick Palotay returns to Marietta to go on the bachelor auction block for a good cause, he expects it to be risk free. But when he needs someone safe to bid on him and his sister’s best friend is coaxed into stepping up, Nick isn’t prepared for the effect Cassidy has on him. She sends his mind to all kinds of dirty places…places his battered heart can’t afford.

Freelance photographer Cassidy Ware is in waaay over her head. She’s always been Nick’s other little sister, but she’s all grown up now and just a glance from him leaves her hot and bothered. Still, she can stay immune to his charms and keep him at an emotional distance because she’s got an agenda, too. She’ll help the too-handsome Nick with his charitable deed, and, in return, he’ll help her keep an unwelcome suitor at bay.

A deal’s a deal, but when their “business transaction” turns into more pleasure than duty, can they walk away from each other without losing what matters most?

Cassidy Ware has come back home to deal with the sale of her parent’s house along with trying to figure out her next steps in life. She has been scared, literally and figuratively, making her very fearful of everything. Except her best friends brother, and her first crush, Nick Palotay.

Nick’s sister and Cassidy’s best friend, Rowan, asks for her help to save Nick at a bachelor’s auction. Using money that Nick put up, she is more than happy to bet on him. After some friendly teasing from Nick, Cassidy decides to let loose and be more courageous on their weekend date. Nick has lost a lot of people in his life lately and has become emotionally unattached, except to his family. He is staying far away from everyone fearing losing them too. A weekend away with Cassidy means nothing more than spending some time with an old friend. Spending a weekend together Nick and Cassidy share issues from their past and come to understand each other. However, that weekend leads to both wanting more but not being able to come to terms with it. They both walk away from each other only to question whether or not it is the right thing to do.

This was another romantic, enjoyable quick read. I think Nick and Cassidy’s story was even more delightful then the couple in the first book! There were some cute and awkward moments between the two that made them a couple you root for the entire time. I love the storyline on Cassidy’s college story and how she overcame her fears. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more books in the series.

I give Falling for Her Bachelor by Robin Bielman 4 stars!

Hey everyone! Charlene and Robin here. We’re so happy to be celebrating the release of our Bachelor Auction books together! And being that we’ve never personally participated in a bachelor auction, we thought we’d have some fun and share our dream auction participants with you today.
It was tough narrowing it down to four, but since our series centers on four guys—high school football friends reuniting for a worthy cause—we picked that special number. So, here they are! The guys we’d like to bid a chunk of change on are…
Sign us up for any outdoor activity with the sexy, hot Chris Hemsworth!
We know we’d laugh until our stomachs hurt with the adorable Chris Pratt.
That tie is definitely coming off gorgeous Theo James if we get our hands on him.
And the very handsome Shemar Moore makes us want to stay quiet so we can just stare at him and listen to him talk all day.
So tell us, who is your ultimate bachelor auction pick?

Giveaway:

Charlene and Robin will be giving away a $50 Gift Card – Choice from Amazon or Etsy Gift Card to US residents or (like prize for International winner)
