Throwback Thursday - The Bachelor

Author: Carly Phillips
First Published in 2002 by Warner Books

Will this bad boy make it to the altar?

Foreign correspondent Roman Chandler has always prized his freedom above all else. Now losing a coin toss has sealed this youngest brother's fate. Finding someone to escort down the aisle is the easy part—every wannabe bride in sleepy Yorkshire Falls is itching to get hitched to this gorgeous, globe-trotting Chandler man. But Roman still lusts after the woman who got away. Stunning heart breaker Charlotte Bronson has come home to put down roots and get her erotic lingerie business off the ground. She wants a man that won't go chasing off to the far corners of the earth for a breaking news story. He wants her to say "I do."

This is the first book by Carly Phillips that I have "read" (I listened to the audio version). I thought it was a cute romance. There were definitely some cheesy moments in it, but for the most part it was just fun. I enjoyed the relationship between Roman and his brothers. The HEA was believable. I really like romances in which the hero figures out that he is in love before the heroine. It just makes it much more satisfying.

My only problem was with the narrator of the audio book. His female voices were not very good. For the most part, they came across sounding like airheads or valley girls. That was a bit annoying.

I would recommend it, but maybe not the audio version. Pick up the physical or e-copy.

LOL It's amazing how many "valley girls" show up in audio books. Very annoying, indeed.
