The Reluctant Bachelorette by Rachael Anderson

 The Reluctant Bachelorette by Rachael Anderson

Unknowingly cast as the bachelorette for her town’s charity event, Taycee Emerson wants out. Especially when she discovers her old teenage crush, Luke Carney, is one of the bachelors and it's up to the viewers--not her--to decide which bachelors stay or go.

Coerced into participating, Taycee does what any self-preserving girl would do. She launches a subtle attack on Luke’s good name with the hope of getting him voted off the show. Unfortunately, Luke's an eye-for-an-eye kind of guy, and when he discovers what she's up to, it means revenge.

But when their pranks go south, will they screw up any chance they have at a future together, or will they be able to forgive and forget and prove that love really does conquer all?
My thoughts:
The Reluctant Bachelorette is a fun, easy read. I enjoyed every minute of it. It is my first experience with author Rachael Anderson: It won't be my last! 
I loved the idea of the Bachelorette concept to save the town. It made for some funny situations. To have the viewers decided who will win was a great idea also. 
When her childhood love is added to the show-let the fun begin! Poor Luke! He has no idea Taycee had a mad crush on him when she was only 14. He's back from college now, longing for the quiet life as the town's vet. Too bad he's not going to get it.
 Taycee's friend Jessa is hilarious, although after what she does to Taycee, I'd be a bit wary of friending her! This is a wonderful, clean read and I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys love and laughing.

I'd give it FIVE stars!

About the Author:
Rachael Anderson is the author of four contemporary romances: Divinely Designed, Luck of the Draw, Minor Adjustments, and The Reluctant Bachelorette. She's the mother of four, can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
