    First book EVER to give me goose bumps!!!

    An Irresistible Bachelor...WOW. Captivating from the start, I found this book entirely difficult to put down, a real and true page turner, and for the first time ever in reading a book, was rewarded with goose bumps within the story. An Irresistible Bachelor is one book that proved itself irresistible to enjoy.

    Callie Burke is a conservationist of art, a professional who restores paintings to their classic beauty through intricate handwork and cleaning. She is relatively new at this and nervous about taking on her first big job, a portrait that dates to the Revolutionary War and is important to the owner because it is his ancestor. She is more worried though, about her attraction to the owner. She fights showing her attracting to the owner, which entices the reader to turn the page, just to see what will happen next.

    Jack Walker is a multi-millionaire businessman and possible candidate for Governor of Massachusetts in the next election. He has restored the family fortunes after his father (who was not a good businessman but loved to give away money to philanthropic organizations) almost bankrupted the family. He has now purchased the last of the family portraits that had been sold off and he wants to hang it back in the study in its place of honor. He hires Callie at the recommendation of a friend who also happens to be Callie's secret half-sister.

    Callie, you see, was born into a non-family. Her mother was the mistress of a famous businessman who just happened to be married with another legitimate child. Callie lived her life knowing her father, yet unable to publicly acknowledge him and he failed to show Callie any love when he made his clandestine visits to her mother. After his death, she confronted her half-sister Grace, a celebrity in her own right, who accepted her as a friend, but decided to protect her parents' reputation by keeping it quiet. And Callie has agreed to that.

    Now, Jack has met Callie. He had just become engaged to an old family friend, deciding it was time to curb his playboy ways (which the press had definitely exaggerated) and to help in his campaign. He decides to break things with Blaire because he finds himself too attracted to Callie. Callie and he begin a love affair. But they hit rough roads when Jack starts talking about running for office and Callie will not trust him with the truth about her parents. When Jack's mother gets involved it turns ugly and something's got to give.

    I truly enjoyed these two characters and their intelligent interactions. They love but they are not dumb about it. They realize that they have issues to overcome and they talk. Even when they are angry with each other and they both choose to sulk, it is done with some sense of acknowledgment that this is not the best way to work things out. Circumstances work with them to finally resolve their issues.

    The aspect behind the story, which involves a secret romance story within the painting, is truly something that will draw you in and make you shiver with anticipation.

    An Irresistible Bachelor looks on the surface like one of the off-kilter romantic comedies that are currently so popular. But look beneath the cover and you will find a well-written, engaging and intelligent love story.

    For the first time in a very long time, I give this story and the well written love tale 5 stars out of 5.

    Steamy

    Really enjoyed this one. There's quite a bit of steamy action so younger readers beware! Good plotline that kept me entertained. One of my favorites by J.R. Ward.

    Never a Disappointment!!

    I have yet to read a book by J.R. Ward that I didn't like...An Irresisitable Bachelor was no exception!!! I love the flow of the storyline, how everyone seems to connect, and the character development is awesome. If you have read her paranormal series' and want a good ol' fashioned romance to change things up...read her writings as Jessica Bird, you won't be disappointed either! P.S. I love that Callie is a red-head with blue eyes....and Jack is that brooding tall, dark, and handsome!

    Highly Recommended - a great romance novel!

    I am a huge fan of The Black Dagger Brotherhood and therefore love to read any of J.R. Ward's novels. This was additionally very enjoyable to read and what I liked most is the relationship between Jack and Nate (The Rebel) as brothers and how she incorporates Nate into this story.

    Irresistble book

    This was an amzing love story I could not put it down. A love story behind another love story. It showcased that love is not easy and you have to work for it. Communication and compromise is needed for any relationship regaurdless of social class. The WARDen as always kept you wanting to turn each page faster to find out what happens.

    Not the greatest of her work but any means. Normally her books keep me turning the pages and wondering what is going to happen next and needless to say that I didn't really care about the characters. A little disappointing!

    JR Ward delivers another steamy romance novel. She always knows how to introduce a strong and wealthy sex pot. I will always read whatever she writes. Great story with a good storyline:) Wish it were longer. about 250 pages
