{Release Day Review+Giveaway} THE BACHELOR AUCTION by Rachel Van Dyken

{Release Day Review+Giveaway} THE BACHELOR AUCTION by Rachel Van Dyken

The Bachelor Auction is the first book in Bachelors of Arizona series by Rachel Van Dyken. The Bachelors of Arizona series is an adult contemporary romance series, but I feel like it will have crossover appeal to the new adult audience as well. I enjoyed this book. It was a quick, fun and cute read, so a quick little mini review will do for this one. The Bachelor Auction is a a take on a Cinderella story, and I loved the main woman- Jane. She stole the show for me. I found her to be charming and delightful really. I also like Brock but I didn’t fully love him. I think Brock is the reason why out of all Rachel’s books I have read, this one is not my number one pick. It does have Rachel’s signature witty and fun writing style. I really love her writing, by the way. And because she is such a strong writer, her romances are always really enjoyable to read, but Brock was a… Read more »

{ARC Review+Giveaway} The Matchmaker’s Replacement by Rachel Van Dyken @RachVD

Please Note: this is the second book in a series, that should be read in order. If you are new to the Wingmen Inc. series, first check out my review of book one- The Matchmaker’s Playbook HERE The Matchmaker’s Replacement is the second book in a new adult contemporary romance series, called Wingmen Inc., by Rachel Van Dyken. As the title and series name suggests, the series centers around two college friends that have a side business where they set up women with their crushes. I read, and enjoyed The Matchmaker’s Playbook, and while technically speaking the stories can be read as standalones, because the two friends are very integral in each others stories, and in their business, I feel like I got much more out of the story having read Ian’s story first. Ian is present throughout The Matchmaker’s Replacement and it was kind of cool to see how he is now with Blake, knowing how he was before. That will be even more interesting with Lex. I used… Read more »

The Matchmaker’s Playbook is the first book in a new adult contemporary romance series, called Wingmen Inc., by Rachel Van Dyken. As the title and series name suggests, the story centers around two college friends that have a side business where they set up women with their crushes. The whole book had a very Hitch vibe (you know, the Will Smith rom com) They don’t advertise, you just pass around a card when you are done to a “women in need.” The main man of Wingmen Inc. is Ian, and the book is told in dual narrative between him and Blake. Blake is an athlete through and through and she goes to Ian for his help catching the eye of her childhood friend, and crush. Ian ends up falling for Blake. Don’t worry, I am not spoiling anything for anyone, you can tell all of this from the very first line in the summary. It is a very cutesey setup, and one that I really enjoyed. I can’t wait to… Read more »
