The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken
The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken, is a sweet, modern twist on the classic tale Cinderella. I am a HUGE Disney fan and this story that Rachel has penned perfectly ticked many of my bookworm boxes.
Brock & Jane were a brilliant pairing, both downtrodden and suffering from the impact of controlling, demanding family. These characters made me feel for them, smile and swoon. Once free from the clutches of the family, Brock and Jane really blossomed. It was a joy and pleasure to read.
My only downside of this book, and the reason for my four star rating is purely due to the book being in the 3rd person. I cannot say anything bad against the story or Rachel’s writing which was just WOW, as always. The 3rd person perspective stopped me from being totally connected to the characters. I missed some of the deeper internal perspective we get from 1st person stories. I must say though, this is just MY personal preference/perspective. The story, the writing is GREAT.
Rachel, remains to be one of those authors whose books I love no matter what. And I do love this one. It’s a beautiful tale, of breaking free and doing things for yourself.
The Bachelor Auction is a story you should curl up in a blanket with and fall in love with. Because you WILL.
Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.
Jane isn’t entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn’t she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes—or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire—maybe do exist.
Except Brock Wellington isn’t anyone’s dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk—even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it’s karmic retribution that he’s tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can’t have. But while they can’t have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . .
