The Bachelor Contract


I've been waiting for Brant's story and I knew that it would be chocked full of drama considering what a hot mess he was in the last book. Brant is all sorts of broody, he's a time bomb and is literally on the road to destruction in this book. Nikki dear gawd she has gone through so much I couldn't even imagine how she manages each day. Watching these two reunite was hilarious at times, gut wrenching at others and literally had me wrapped up in them. There is a lot of pain with Brant and his ex-wife Nikki. So much heartache and tragedy I wasn't sure how these two would be able to deal with each other. A lot of hurt existed between the two of them. There are a few funny moments in this book which helps offset a lot of the heavy we get with their story. The side characters in this book were just the best and never failed to pipe up and have their say which entertained me to no end whether it was one of the brothers, Nadine Titan and her meddling ways, even Cole had me smiling from ear to ear. I really do hope we get a story about Cole by the way. Overall this was a great read, it was full of pain, loss, hurt, anger as well as forgiveness and maybe even a bit of redemption.



(The Bachelors of Arizona Book 3)

A second-chance romance from the #1 New York Times bestseller of The Bet, Matchmaker and Elite series!

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.

It was Brant.

Always Brant.

Maybe that was because they’d never had any real closure. Just fighting, yelling, and then silence.

God, she’d hated the silence so much more than the yelling.

The silence crackled with tension—it was always filled with more meaning than when words were actually spoken.

It wasn’t the yelling that had killed their relationship.

It was the silence that had followed. When he had every opportunity to fix it—and didn’t.

Why was it so hard to move on? Probably because she hadn’t tried.

Instead, she’d worked. Tried to stay positive. And hoped.

Damn hope. Stupid hope.

“He’s not coming back for me,” she whispered, knowing that if she finally admitted he wasn’t coming, she would have to take her part of the blame in why. Because it wasn’t just on him to come running back. A small part of her knew that it was her job to meet him halfway. Instead, she’d ignored the need in his eyes, the desperate plea in his voice, and allowed grief to swallow her whole. Because at the time she’d needed someone to blame, and it was easier blaming him than herself.
