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.

Cute and fast story about Cody Matthews who is back home after losing his way. He is out of the Army, worked in security and now is back home in Montana. He is using the excuse of helping his uncle at the Lucky B Ranch, but in reality, he is back home unsure of himself. 

Hollywood actress and fellow resident Hayley Dawn O’Malley is back home too. Her grandmother has passed away and she is tending to her affairs. Hayley also needs a break from Hollywood. When strange things start to happen to Hayley in Montana, she uses the excuse to hire Cody as her security. In reality, Hayley always wonders what would have happened if things worked out between them.

I love second chance love stories. This one was cute. The ending felt a little rushed to me, but it was still cute and a fun read!

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?

4 stars!!
Who doesn't love a sexy firefighter/former Navy man??? Falling for Her Bachelor, has the best of everything!! Not only is Nick Palotay a hot sexy fireman, he is also the older brother of Cassidy Ware's best friend. A friend turned lover book??? Those are my absolute favorite kind!!

Nick is back in his hometown and he is signed up to be a bachelor for a charity event. Not liking where the event is heading, he asks his "friend" Cassidy to help him out, use his money and bid on him. No matter what it cost. What starts of as a "business arrangement" turns into more when Cassidy and Nick spend time together and see that they have a lot in common and actually like spending time together. Their chemistry is off the charts hot. 

There is only one slight problem, Nick tells Cassidy right off the bat that this is only a temporary thing. He can't handle long term or falling in love. He has a sad past, and doesn't want to deal with love or loss again in his life. Cassidy agrees on his terms, thinking she can handle what he is offering. 

Cassidy and Nick realize there is more feeling between them then they thought. Can they handle more?

I loved this story. It was a fast read for me, probably because I loved it so much!
