Sweet, sexy and deeply emotional!
She’s no Sleeping Beauty. And he’s definitely no prince . . .
Margot McCleery could have lived her whole life without seeing Bentley Wellington again-her ex-best friend and the poster boy for Hot, Rich Man-Whores everywhere. But Margot’s whiskey-augmented grandmother “buys” Bentley at a charity bachelor auction, and now suddenly he’s at her door.
Impossibly charming. Impossibly sexy. And still a complete and utter jackass. Bentley’s just been coerced by his grandfather to spend the next thirty days charming and romancing the reclusive red-haired beauty who hates him. The woman he abandoned when she needed him the most.
Bentley knows just as much about romance as he knows about love-nothing. But the more time he spends with Margot, the more he realizes that “just friends” will never be enough. Now all he has to do is convince her to trust him with her heart . . .
The Playboy Bachelor – second book in the ‘The Bachelors of Arizona’ series by Rachel Van Dyken was such an intriguing story and once I started reading, I was hooked!
The romance between the main characters was passionate, believable, and oh-so-sexy!
I loved how flawed, complex, and fascinating the characters were! Both Margot and Bentley had history that shaped them in such a way that it was hard for either of them to open up to anyone. Pretending, faking, putting up a front was their motto – just to forget what happened.
I went into this book blind, didn’t even read the blurb, just knew that I liked Rachel Van Dyken’s writing style, love her banter, and always enjoyed her books immensely.
The Playboy Bachelor was what I hoped for but also so much more.
The novel had depth, emotions, layers, and characters that drew me in from the very first page.
Margot and Bentley were fascinating in their demeanor and spellbinding in their flawed personalities. Both wore scars, some on the outside many on the inside and both needed each other to heal. To forgive each other, and themselves.
For me the book was all about forgiveness, and new beginnings.
Margot was such an amazing women. Strong, resilient, but also scared, and broken. My heart ached for her at times and was jubilant at other times. She really deserved a happily ever after and I’m so glad that Bentley came back into her life.
There was so much history between them. Attraction, sexual tension, but also friendship.
Bentley had so many layers. He was a caretaker deep inside his soul. He took care of his twin brother, he was the glue that kept his family together, but that alone wasn’t enough anymore. He needed a person that knew and accepted him the way he was underneath all those complex layers. And Margot had always had the skill to see him as who he was.
The Playboy Bachelor (The Bachelors of Arizona #2) by Rachel Van Dyken was an utterly enjoyable read, emotional, funny, sexy and sweet!!
It had everything I like in a romance and so much more!!
