Megan Crane's In Bed with the Bachelor was nothing like I expected. When the story started I didn't even like Michaela, but thankfully by the end of the story I did. She was brainwashed by her fiancee into having an open relationship, which really meant the fiancee could screw anyone he wanted. Hearing Michaela talk and reading her perspective for the first half of the book made me really not like her. Jesse's perspective was a lot better and those points were what kept me reading. Jesse was a good guy with a messed up piece of family history. That history was coloring his interactions with Michaela. If it wasn't for Jesse, Michaela would have ended up married to a guy that was using her, so them meeting and falling in love was for the best. Despite not liking the heroine at the beginning, she did redeem herself and I am glad I read this story. It is the 5th book in the Bachelor Auction series and I'm one for reading all of a series if I can. This story only gets 3.5 stars from me tho, because it took me so long to like the heroine.
Our latest bachelor
has enough family in Marietta to qualify as an honorary native, but
hails instead from Seattle, WA, which is where he’ll fly you for a
glamorous weekend on the shores of the sparkling Puget Sound. Jesse Grey
will treat you the way a local boy turned construction tycoon should:
five star accommodations, gourmet dinners, and celebrated Washington
wines. We just can’t promise he’ll smile much. Or at all.
Sold to the highest bidder!
notorious bachelor and one of Seattle’s foremost construction tycoons,
has been roped into participating in the Marietta Bachelor Auction
thanks to an expertly executed guilt trip laid out by his family.
already has a fiancé and certainly doesn’t need another man in her
life. So when her family buys her surly, sexy Jesse at the auction and
wrangles him into driving her from Montana to Seattle, she’s appalled
yet disturbingly attracted.
As far as Jesse is concerned,
Michaela is forbidden fruit. Even though he knows her fiancé isn’t all
he seems, Jesse would never take what didn’t belong to him. But how long
can he resist the one woman he shouldn’t touch?
