This is the 3rd book in the Bachelor of Arizona series.  This book was not my favorite. I hate to say that, because you know I have nothing but love for Rachel Van Dyken, but damn! How come when a dude is all “I lost the love of my life” that he has to become a man-whore to fuck his ex-love away? That shit just gets on my nerves.  It took me a long time to read this book. I’d sit it down and then come back later and read another chapter. Very unlike me.  I just didn’t like Brant at all. Like, I actively disliked him. I was surprised by that, because I felt like in the other books of the series, that I thought he was funny. :/.

There were parts of the book that I liked. I liked the dates that he tried to recreate and show her how much he really did care, and how Brant and Nikki found their way back to each other. Being part of the healing process was heartwrenching, and of course I cried. The loss that they had to endure clawed out at me, even though I didn’t really *want* them together….. Speaking of which, I’m wondering if Cole is going to get a book! I was kind of hoping Rachel had written another Sanchez-y story line. No such luck….. I was still happy that they could be reunited.

To be fair, I’m not a huge fan of Second-Chance romances. I’m a grudge holder, so I find it hard to get involved in a story where two people try and get back together. Maybe that is something I should work on! Personal Growth! 🙂

This is the 2nd book of The Bachelors of Arizona Series. The first one was about brother Brock. This one follows Bentley.

Another Rigged Auction Casualty. The brothers are all going down thanks to their Grandfather and his 89-year-old matchmaking Girlfriend .

Bentley and Margot used to be best friends, but haven’t talked in years and years. Not a gentle growing apart that more often than not happens between best friends, but a ripping, crushing parting. Margot lost her parents, part of her leg, and Bentley all in one swoop. Bentley lost the grounding that Margot gave him.

Honestly, Margot forgave Bentley much faster than I think I would have done had it been me. Maybe. You really can’t predict how you’re heart will react to things. I mean… Look at all the people who give significant others’ chance after chance to break their hearts. Maybe it comes from wanting to see the good in people…..even when it’s clearly not there. Maybe we see the “best case scenerio” even when people haven’t lived up to it….  Ha…. there is some free therapy for you today… hahaha
