About the Book: 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: This was such a fun read! Taycee was such a down-to-earth girl-next-door type - and she gets coerced into being the town bachelorette on a webshow to try to raise money to help the local farmers. Of course this happens just days after her girlhood crush, Luke, moves back to town after a ten year absence. Wondering whether or not she will be able to get over him this time, she volunteers his name in the hat to be bachelor 21 before she finds out that she is the unwilling bachelorette. Never one to want the spotlight, she now not only has it, but also has 21 bachelors vying for her attention!
Well, you can see how this can become humorous quickly. Taycee doesn't actually get to choose which bachelors stay - that honor falls to the viewers who for $1 can cast a vote for the bachelor of their choice - but will it be Taycee's choice as well?
As Taycee and Luke relive some old high school memories, when Luke was Taycee's big brother's best friend, she is also setting him up to be voted off the show. Which bachelor will be the last man standing? You will have to read it to find out!
I loved the tension between Taycee and Luke as well as the misunderstandings. I just wanted to shake Luke and tell him to open his eyes! It was fun hearing about some of the dates that Taycee went on with the other bachelors as well, from the egotistical one to the spitter! If you are looking for a light-hearted romance, then look no further. And you can pick up for your kindle until Oct 31 for only 99 cents!
