The Reluctant Bachelorette: A Romantic Comedy

The Reluctant Bachelorette: A Romantic Comedy - Rachael Anderson Check out my other listens at Eargasms Audiobook Reviews

What a sweet funny romance!! I love the whole thing from beginning to end, It takes something that is very now, Reality dating shows, and put it into a small town setting. The story also held many elements that are very current concerning small farming communities. While it is hard to expect problem solving from a romance, this book takes on issues and gives workable solutions.

I loved Taycee from the start, even if her views of things were slightly off. It was strange she would see the others guys teasing as fun but when Luke did the same thing she thought it was baiting and mean. She was a big pushover to her friend, her brother and Luke. She found her backbone in the end, but it was a process.

Luke seems like a great guy, he is just bad at correspondence. I get it, I am totally the same, without Facebook people would never hear from me! Back to the hero, Luke is fun and sweet and everything a nice girl could want.

They have a really terrific banter and playfulness when they are together. You can see why they make a great couple. This is a totally clean romance, that means no sex. There are some really lovely kisses but things do not get to the bedroom. It is the kind of story that gives you warm fuzzies.

There is a lot of story here, and many bachelor to keep track of throughout. i really liked Jake and Miles and hoped they would have HEA of their own mixed into the story. It kinda looked like Jake might with Jessa.

This is a mixed narrative going between the lead character's POVs, although most of the beginning is Taycee. There are a could glimpses of supporting cast too. The peaks into Luke's thoughts are important for getting his motivations and understanding his feeling for Taycee.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Jennifer Reilly, who has a very smooth read. She had a great tone and pitch that really suit the story. The ladies' voices are varied and consistent, the men are kinda similar at times. She has a very stead pace to her read, I tend to like it quicker, but many will find it a perfect speed. I enjoyed her narration and would definitely try her again.

Overall this is a very sweet romance with some fun moments. This is a first read for me from Ms Anderson and I would definitely do another. She did a great job with the storytelling, great pace and plenty of twists and turns. Loads of story here to keep a gal entertained! Major Kudos.
