The Reluctant Bachelorette by Rachael Anderson is a terrific romantic comedy. It puts a new, charitable spin on the reality tv craze. I loved the humor and admired the depth of the characters. I did not put it down.

Taycee always ends a relationship before the guy bends to one knee--she doesn't plan on ever getting married, a concept that I can totally relate to. She just can't seem to forget about Luke, a guy who left and broke her heart without even knowing it. Suddenly, he reappears in her life, and she still acts like the same dorky 14-year old kid. For Taycee, the "past and present collide with a colossal bang." And can you blame her? Luke is gorgeous! Then a reality dating show to raise funds for a small town is born and Taycee becomes "the reluctant bachelorette." What's so interesting about this show was that Taycee wasn't choosing the guy. No, the audience was choosing him for her. The shy flower girl turns into a TV sensation overnight. You'll love seeing Taycee and Luke reconnect in a love/hate battle, reminiscent of their brother-sister relationship but now added with an undeniable attraction. This is a story about real love and heart. A funny, romantic comedy that would totally make a great movie.

I really enjoyed this one. It was fun, and different, and all-around cute. I was intrigued by the bachelorette part, and that's what made this story fun and unique. Taycee loves flowers. She owns a little flower shop in her hometown of Shelter and loves her job. However, she can't seem to settle down or find a serious boyfriend, because all her thoughts are tainted by her first love--a guy that left town 10 years ago, and never looked back or kept in touch. Until the day she finds out he's coming back to shelter. At the same time, Taycee's best friend Jessa has signed her up to be Shelter's bachelorette for an online reality dating show to help save the farms. And guess who's one of the bachelors… I liked Taycee, as she was spunky and independent but still minimal. She likes simple things, likes her small town, and doesn't like change. But she was fun. I liked the supporting characters as well, from Taycee's brother, to the bachelors. I did not like Taycee's best friend Jessa. Just couldn't stand her. The bachelorette show was a little iffy. Not sure if it really would have worked that way, as I feel like there wasn't much to go on in the episodes. But it was still a different plot point, and made things interesting. All in all, this was a cute and fun story that I really enjoyed reading.

This book was very funny, and turned out to be the perfect book to read while all of my friends were at homecoming! It definitely took my mind off of not getting a pretty dress - making me laugh, smirk, and smile the entire time I read it instead! Why did I enjoy it so much you ask? Well, it pulled me right in from the beginning you see, because Luke Carney is more than Taycee's childhood crush. After ten years she can't get over him, comparing every guy she dates to the image she's had all this time of Luke. I found that to be very sweet, and I loved how it all seemed so realistic. Then we find out that Luke is back in Shelter Springs, and of course there are the hilarious circumstances of the Bachelorette show, and the fact that Shelter Springs needs a miracle. All of this just pulled me in, and come on you'd need a heart of stone not to root for Luke! And she had just sworn off men! But before we get into that... I found Taycee to be very realistic. Her personality made her seem real and her reluctance to be the Bachelorette even if it was just to save her town? Well, it was very well done. Her sarcasm, humor, kindness, charm, and love of flowers made added so much to the book, making it come off the page. Jessa, Taycee's stubborn know it all friend, added another touch of realness to the book, because I can totally relate (though I'd never ever let them drag me into something like that) - but we're grateful to Jessa, because the plot just wouldn't have been the same without her! The undercurrent between Luke and Taycee was palpable. She was so determined to guard her heart from him so she wouldn't get hurt again, scheming to get him kicked off the show then attempting to ignore him. Luke? Well, his eyes had just been opened to the grown up Taycee she had become, and he was determined to get to know her no matter the crazy cirmcumstances! Cue hilariousness! Warning, warning, warning. Get ready to laugh and smile when you read this book!  I loved the parts of the book where Luke and Taycee were together. Their history! They were just so obviously perfect for each other! I was definitely swooning and smiling throughout those parts, and laughing (can't forget to laugh). This book was lighthearted at times, which was exactly what I needed but there was also just the right amount of depth to it, because let's face it the idea of the reality show the bachelorette, just wouldn't cut it for me - but this was so, so, so much better than a reality show! This book deals with facing and embracing change, letting go and holding on, learning how to trust again, soaring free, and honesty (always important).   I did not want to put this book down, ever - not while I was reading or when I was finished! As soon as I finished though I had to add all of Rachael Anderson's other books to my TBR shelf on Goodreads and I'm sure they'll make to a shelf on my Nook or wall really soon, because after The Reluctant Bachelorette I must have more! Why did this book sit on my shelf for so long? Well done Rachael Anderson!

How nice to read a completely clean romance! No profanity (of any kind), and no sex scenes--not even any innuendoes! This is honestly the major strength of this book. It is a clean, light read, and it will appeal to the hopeless romantics out there. I really did enjoy the premise of the book--a small-town Bachelorette show for charity. There were a few moments of irony that did keep my interest, but I also found the typical stereotypical characters. I didn't feel I connected with this romance the way I normally connect with them. I also felt that the characters were nice but only 2-dimensional at best. And--I have to say this--it is a sappy romance. Not as bad as some I have read, but it still is. This book is truly a nice, light romance that can be read in the span of a few hours. I did feel that I was compelled to finish it because I wanted to see exactly how things worked out. The humor is light (but I wish there had been more, as is the romance. I am glad that the message of telling the truth is stressed. That is probably the only moral message in the book, but it certainly comes across well. If you are looking for a clean romance, this is definitely the book for you. I certainly would read more books from this author in the future! I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
