Your date with Marietta local Beau Bennett includes a day on the slopes at Big Sky Resort, complete with a sumptuous meal in the Resort’s fanciest fine dining restaurant and door-to-door transport. Dig deep to secure the attentions of one of Montana’s most eligible - and elusive - bachelors.
Lily Taylor knows Beau Bennett dislikes her, but that won’t stop her from asking him to volunteer for the Bachelor Auction she’s organized to help her friend Molly provide for her tragically injured son, Josh. If Beau’s gorgeous face, piercing blue eyes and chiseled body inspires the women of Marietta to dig into their pockets for a good cause, then Lily will do whatever it takes to secure his participation.
Beau Bennett isn’t sure how he wound up on the auction block being eyed up by hundreds of eager women, but he knows who to blame for it - Lily Taylor, the sexy, distracting, off-limits best friend of his kid sister. As far as he’s concerned, the sooner this nightmare is over, the better.
The last thing either of them expects is for Lily to wind up bidding on - and winning - Beau, or that their date will lead to Beau stepping in to save Lily when her past comes back to haunt her. As Beau does his best to keep Lily safe, they discover that maybe they don’t dislike each other quite as much as they thought.
In fact, maybe it’s just the opposite…

Bachelor #1 in Marietta's Bachelor Auction
A fun quick read, Bound to the Bachelor is the first book in the Bachelor Auction series.
Lily Taylor wants to help her friend with the costs related to her son's accident that put him in a wheelchair. Not only is her friend a single mom, the injured child is Lily's godson. Deciding a Bachelor Auction would be a good fundraiser, she sets out to recruit candidates.
Beau Bennett is a former Marine with a quickly growing security business. He is also the brother of Lily's best friend who has made his disapproval of her very well known. He is also a very eligible bachelor, so Lily grabs her courage and convinces him to participate in the auction.
Fast forward to the auction, where Lily decides at the last minute what she wants to do with her unexpected windfall....and Beau is the only bachelor left to bid on. Lily is more than a little shocked when Beau decides to honor the date and the two spend the day together and have to admit the animosity has been to cover the attraction.
I enjoyed these two characters and getting to know them. The were such fun once they admitted they had chemistry.
I loved returning to Marietta and this was a wonderful way to see old friends and meet new ones. Lily was a strong character who worked hard to get past the challenges of her early life.
A great beginning to a new series that I can't wait to continue with. I am excited about the next bachelors Lily has convinced to participate in the auction.
Spicy & Sweet
I really enjoyed this book as a stand alone but I found it even more enjoyable as a runner up to "Make Believe Wedding". I'm hopping to read the rest of the Bachelor Auction series soon. I loved the chemistry between Lily and Beau. How they try to stay apart but ultimately can't and that they both struggle from past childhood hurt but they use their shared love to overcome it together. Maybe I'm a sappy romantic but this book was a little of it all plus a lot of spicy if you know what I'm saying😉😏 I know you'll love it and the rest of the series too!
Witty and laugh out loud good
A well written romance between an exstripper and her best friends brother. You will love it
