Review: Bound to the Bachelor by Sarah Mayberry (Bachelor Auction 1)

Complete-A-Series Challenge: Montana Born Bachelor Auction series

Starting today until next week, I will be reading and reviewing books from the Montana Born Bachelor Auction series. The series consists of six contemporary romances, set in Montana during and after an auction for its young, eligible and hot gorgeous bachelors. Although the books are part of a series, the individual stories can be read as stand-alone.

This is part of my new Complete-A-Series Challenge. I hope to get to finish all six books in one week.

Wish me luck!

Lily Taylor knows Beau Bennett dislikes her, but that won’t stop her from asking him to volunteer for the Bachelor Auction she’s organized to help her friend Molly provide for her tragically injured son, Josh. If Beau’s gorgeous face, piercing blue eyes and chiseled body inspires the women of Marietta to dig into their pockets for a good cause, then Lily will do whatever it takes to secure his participation.

Beau Bennett isn’t sure how he wound up on the auction block being eyed up by hundreds of eager women, but he knows who to blame for it – Lily Taylor, the sexy, distracting, off-limits best friend of his kid sister. As far as he’s concerned, the sooner this nightmare is over, the better.

The last thing either of them expects is for Lily to wind up bidding on – and winning – Beau, or that their date will lead to Beau stepping in to save Lily when her past comes back to haunt her. As Beau does his best to keep Lily safe, they discover that maybe they don’t dislike each other quite as much as they thought.

In fact, maybe it’s just the opposite…

You’re in an auction, and you have ten grand somewhere in your pocket, would you bid for the most beautiful girl that you see?

Bound to the Bachelor is the first book in the Montana Born Bachelor Auction series. Lily Taylor asked Beau Bennett, as well as other hot bachelors of Marietta, to participate in a Bachelor Auction, to raise funds for their friend, Molly & son Josh who was recently involved in a tragic accident. Long before this auction bid took place, Lily & Beau had tried really hard to get away from each other. I basically didn’t really know what made Beau dislike Lily so much; is it just because she’s got the notorious reputation of being a stripper/exotic lap dancer once? I say, he was quite judgmental if that was his reason for avoiding her. But as the story progressed, we learned the real reason why Beau couldn’t trust his heart to be near her.

On the other hand, Lily’s past was catching up on her, haunting and taunting her, ultimately putting her life in danger. An inheritance of some sort, amounting to ten thousand dollars, shook up Lily’s nerves, and brought about the memories of her past. To get away from it all, she decided to use the money to bid on Beau Bennett. And their lives took a spin from thereon.

Loved this book by Sarah Mayberry. The author knew how to make readers swoon for the guy and cry with the girl. This book melts my heart, Lily & Beau have the perfect chemistry. Although their instant love connection and profession of love at the end of the book was too soon, I still liked that “having butterflies in my stomach” feeling after reading their book.
