I really liked that the story didn't unfold how I thought it would. I liked how Taycee and Luke's story progressed and by the end you are totally rooting for them. Taycee was a really likable lead. You can't help buy feel for her sitation. I thought the idea and version of the Bachelorette that they did was really believable. In fact, I wanted to go onto their website and watch some of Taycee's dates! I liked that the show was for charity to help out the people of her town. Taycee has loved Luke for ages, since they were kids. He left for college and never looked back. Even after all their years apart she couldn't get him out of her heart. Luke had moved on, but realized he was missing something from his life and went back to his childhood home to try and find what he was missing. I loved their first encounter after not seeing each other for ten years. I actually liked all their encounters, they had great chemistry.
I thought this was a great story. The characters were well developed and while it's a nice romantic comedy type book, it also had nice depth to it. It's a nice feel good story and one I will definitely read again.
Rachael, I know this just came out yesterday, but I can't wait for more. When is your next book coming out?? :)
I’ve never had much luck with Amazon freebies. I think I’ve DNFed every single one of them so far. Until I stumbled upon The Reluctant Bachelorette. I was already intrigued by the premise, because I used to watch The Bachelor. Don’t judge me – you know you did, too. It’s really bad, just like your average reality show, in the sense that it is clichéd and cheesy, but I kept watching anyway because I was interested in a morbid way and I wanted to know what happened.
The Reluctant Bachelorette is the literary equivalent of that, except that it doesn’t suck, but you still need to know what happens next. It’s a really cute romance about Taycee Emerson, a girl who owns the local flower shop. She’s thrown into a blast from the past when Luke Carney decides to move back to Shelter Springs. You know, the Luke Carney she used to have a massive crush on back in high school. The one that was her brother’s best friend. She receives an even bigger shop when her best friend turns her into Shelter’s Bachelorette in an online version of the show. As it’s an attempt to raise money for their town’s farms, Taycee reluctantly agrees. However, the bets are all off when Luke becomes one of the bachelors vying for her heart.
It definitely made me smile on more than one occasion. When you have over twenty guys fighting over you, there have to be some rotten apples in the lot. We had, for instance, a guy who’s full of himself, and a guy who could not stop spitting whenever he talked. The idea was that the people could vote for the guys rather than Taycee herself, but she tries everything in her power to get Luke voted off. This causes some tension between the two, which was really enjoyable.
We see everything through Taycee’s eyes as she’s forced to be a part of this show – forced to go on dates with guys she doesn’t like. Her dates with the spitter were the most entertaining, I think. And then I got to swoon a little as we meet some genuinely charming guys. We also see her attempts to get Luke voted off the show, and her struggles to continue with the show when her feelings from the past start flourishing again. Especially when it seems like Luke’s into her too. Surely she can't fall for a guy the audience has already voted off? What would that mean for the show?
The dynamic between Taycee and Luke was really something. On the one hand, Taycee is annoyed that Luke left town after high school without saying goodbye. She's annoyed that he never called when he said he would. But she also knows that he's looking really good right now, and that he's finally paying some real attention to her. It's a double feeling, but it's so lovely to see them becoming closer. They're beautiful together.
It’s definitely one of those rainy day reads – it’ll make you feel light-hearted and fluffy, and you’ll laugh on more than one occasion. An instant favourite.
