Hey everyone! Charlene and Robin here. We’re so happy to be celebrating the release of our Bachelor Auction books together! And being that we’ve never personally participated in a bachelor auction, we thought we’d have some fun and share our dream auction participants with you today.
It was tough narrowing it down to four, but since our series centers on four guys—high school football friends reuniting for a worthy cause—we picked that special number. So, here they are! The guys we’d like to bid a chunk of change on are…
Sign us up for any outdoor activity with the sexy, hot Chris Hemsworth!
We know we’d laugh until our stomachs hurt with the adorable Chris Pratt.
That tie is definitely coming off gorgeous Theo James if we get our hands on him.
And the very handsome Shemar Moore makes us want to stay quiet so we can just stare at him and listen to him talk all day.
So tell us, who is your ultimate bachelor auction pick?

About the Books:

She needed him to guard her body, in more ways than one… 
Ex-Army sergeant and security expert, Cody Matthews recently walked away from his company to work The Lucky B Ranch just outside of Marietta, Montana. The ranch is his refuge, but his hiding out is short-lived when he’s recruited into the Marietta Bachelor Auction and his high school ex-crush bids a small fortune to spend one weekend with him.
Hollywood starlet, Hayley Dawn O’Malley has had decent, honest, sexy Code Matthews on the brain ever since she left Marietta after high school to pursue her dreams. But now she’s back in town and someone is threatening her. Cody, a natural-born protector, is the only man she trusts to keep her safe.
Spending their weekend date in a remote cabin, Cody plays the role of reluctant bodyguard, yet Hayley isn’t going to let the tormented man deny his feelings for her, no matter the threat to her body or her heart.

When Navy firefighter Nick Palotay returns to Marietta to go on the bachelor auction block for a good cause, he expects it to be risk free. But when he needs someone safe to bid on him and his sister’s best friend is coaxed into stepping up, Nick isn’t prepared for the effect Cassidy has on him. She sends his mind to all kinds of dirty places…places his battered heart can’t afford.
Freelance photographer Cassidy Ware is in waaay over her head. She’s always been Nick’s other little sister, but she’s all grown up now and just a glance from him leaves her hot and bothered. Still, she can stay immune to his charms and keep him at an emotional distance because she’s got an agenda, too. She’ll help the too-handsome Nick with his charitable deed, and, in return, he’ll help her keep an unwelcome suitor at bay.
A deal’s a deal, but when their “business transaction” turns into more pleasure than duty, can they walk away from each other without losing what matters most?

My Review:

I am so excited about writing this review because I’m a huge fan of Robin Bielman’s but since I’ve worked with her on her Bliss books I’ve always refrained from reviewing them. When I saw she wrote this book I jumped at my chance to read and review it and trust me you don’t want to miss it! I meant to just read a few pages for bed but next thing I knew my clock read after 1am and I had finished the book. I just couldn’t put the book down until the last satisfying page.

Robin Bielman has an engaging style of writing that sucks you in and makes you fall in love with her characters. Both Nick and Cassidy have their own inner demons they need to face that prevents them from wanting to risk a more permanent relationship. However, the chemistry between the two is undeniable and soon lead to them blurring the lines between being friends, lovers and possibly more.

The story moves quickly and there are many moments that will leave you smiling and laughing over the witty dialog. My only minor quibble would be that Cassidy overcame her inner demon a little too easily to be believed and I wish Nick had played a larger part. Still I loved this book and I can’t wait for more. I would love to read Nick’s sister’s story!


Charlene and Robin will be giving away a $50 Gift Card – Choice from Amazon or Etsy Gift Card to US residents or (like prize for International winner)
