From Publishers Weekly
The small town of Yorkshire Falls and its colorful inhabitants including a mysterious panty-raider and a fun-loving but devious mother are a sturdy stage for Phillips's (Erotic Invitation) romantic romp. After news of his mother's weak heart summons him home, globetrotting journalist Roman Chandler loses a coin toss with his brothers that determines who will relinquish his bachelor status to give their mother a grandchild. Roman decides to "settle down" without giving up his travel-intensive job, and as one of the most handsome men in town, he can have his pick of the local women except for Charlotte Bronson, his high school crush. Thoughts of her parents' miserable long-distance marriage keep Charlotte from accepting Roman's proposal, despite the sexual sparks that fly at their every encounter. Mutual attraction eventually proves too powerful to resist, however, but first Roman must win her trust. Though Phillips gives sensual friction and emotional introspection equal attention, the emotional chemistry between Roman and Charlotte merely simmers while the sexual chemistry explodes. The first in a Chandler brothers trilogy, this entry will encourage readers who enjoy dining on passion to pick up the next book, but those who prefer more emotionally bonded characters may chose a different course.

The story is fun and cute. Three brothers swearing off marriage and their mom who would do anything to get a grandbaby... It's funny and simple, the perfect beach book. Sit back, enjoy, and don't expect life-altering messages like Oprah, and you'll will love and anticipate the rest of the series!
I gave this one star for the author's savvy in actually getting it published.
Charlotte Bronson (her dad named her since his favorite actor is Charles Bronson and even calls her "Charlie") has secretly been in love with Roman since High School. Roman also had an eye for her since those days.
It is now 10 years later and both find themselves back in their hometown. The heat and sparks that come off of them whenever they are near each other was told well enough to have me turning the pages. We all know how the book is going to end but as any well read romance reader knows, it's not the getting there that is enjoyable to read about but WHAT they do in the meantime that is so wonderful to read.
Ms. Phillips can write one sensual love story and make a pair of hand woven bikini panties the best sex tool I've read about in a very long time. If you're looking for a light and sexy love story, The Bachelor is not to be missed.
