The Bachelor Contract
Bachelors of Arizona
Rachel Van Dyken
November 28, 2017
A second-chance romance from the #1 New York Times bestseller of The Bet, Matchmaker and Elite series!
Love of his life.
The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.
And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.
Brant Wellington was certain of three things:
Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.
He really was losing his F-ing mind.
And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.
I could not put The Bachelor Contract down. Once I started I couldn't stop. This book had my feelies all over the place. The Bachelor Contract is definitely second chance romance that kind of breaks your heart. Man I'm tearing up at the thought of this book, and what it put me through.
Okay, we have Brant Wellington, he's a hot mess. Yes, he's hot and a total mess. Brant tries to escape his past with booze and women, but it isn't working. Nadine Titus has the solution, send him off to one of the Wellington resorts. Actually, he does fairly well until she pops back into his life. Nikki. Oh man, talk about walking heartbreak. She needs to talk to Brant to move on, but he wants nothing to do with her. Chaos ensues once they realize they are on the same resort.
The Bachelor Contract wasn't an easy read. I mean there was soooo much heartbreak between these two, and trying to put the pieces back together was extremely painful. Yet, it was such a good read. I love how Brant finally wakes up from his brain fog and realizes what he wants and needs. Talk about an emotion gut punch. Then again, Rachel does have the knack to gut punch. Seriously, I sat and read this book in one day, because I couldn't put it down. I haven't done that in a while. I hope there are more, because there are couple of people I would love see get there own story. For instance Nikki's best friend Cole Malcolm. Seriously, he needs a book. Anyway, totally fell in love with the story, even though it left me emotional all over the place. Then again can't go wrong with a Rachel Van Dyken book; at least I haven't found one that went wrong.

It was Brant.
Maybe that was because they’d never had any real closure. Just fighting, yelling, and then silence.
God, she’d hated the silence so much more than the yelling.
The silence crackled with tension—it was always filled with more meaning than when words were actually spoken.
It wasn’t the yelling that had killed their relationship.
It was the silence that had followed. When he had every opportunity to fix it—and didn’t.
Why was it so hard to move on? Probably because she hadn’t tried.
Instead, she’d worked. Tried to stay positive. And hoped.
Damn hope. Stupid hope.
“He’s not coming back for me,” she whispered, knowing that if she finally admitted he wasn’t coming, she would have to take her part of the blame in why. Because it wasn’t just on him to come running back. A small part of her knew that it was her job to meet him halfway. Instead, she’d ignored the need in his eyes, the desperate plea in his voice, and allowed grief to swallow her whole. Because at the time she’d needed someone to blame, and it was easier blaming him than herself.
