Review: The Bachelor Contract by Rachel Van Dyken

She's everywhere.


Love of his life.

The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.

And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.

Brant Wellington was certain of three things: 

Alcohol wasn't going to solve this. 

He really was losing his F-ing mind. 

And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

Review:  4.5 of 5 Stars

I really enjoyed the previous books in The Bachelors of Arizona series by Rachel Van Dyken and I was excited to get started on Brant's story. While the other Wellington Brothers entertained me and I loved them, I was really anxious to read more about Brant. He definitely had the most history and the most intriguing story that I wanted to know.

When you meet Brant you see that he is an alcoholic that is trying to fill a void with a different woman every night-he has a history. And that history is the ex-wife Nikki he can't forget. Life dealt them some terrible blows and instead of facing it together, Brant did not know how to deal.

Nikki has been struggling with getting over Brant as well. And once Grandma Nadine gets involved, all bets are off. The unique thing about Nikki? She is blind. I work for an ophthalmology group, so I think for me, this characteristic hits especially close to home. Nikki is a great person and she is determined to keep moving. She is a survivor and I love that.

As for their love story, it is really well thought out and I enjoyed reading every minute. I mean, we all know that when Grandma Nadine is involved she is going to win and love will prevail, but I love to see the journey to get there. Great book, Rachel!
