He’s the town’s most popular playboy.

She’s sworn off men and weddings for good.

Police officer, Rick Chandler, has managed to fend off the marriage-minded women in his small town but it’s getting more difficult with each passing day. After all, there’s something about the Chandler charm that keeps them coming back with hope in their hearts. What’s a man determined to stay single to do?

Kendall Sutton is a cliche, a runaway bride stuck on the side of the road, until she’s rescued by the sexiest cop she’s ever seen. In spite of her pearly gown and tiara, Kendall vows to never get married—which makes her the ideal fake girlfriend to ward off Rick’s legion of admirers.

But when their charade starts to feel real, suddenly the town’s most popular playboy has marriage on his mind – but will a woman with Kendall’s jaded past ever say “I do”?

In honor of THE BACHELOR’s 20th Anniversary all three books have been updated and will be reissued with gorgeous NEW covers with the same content but modernized for your reading pleasure. The BACHELOR was the first book that Kelly Ripa chose for her Reading with Ripa Bookclub.

This was a cute, easy read with some interesting characters. Both Rick and Kendall have their reasons to avoid relationships. So, they thought that it would be beneficial for both of them to be part of a “fake” couple. It would get Rick’s mother and other single women in town off of his back and Kendall would get help fixing up her aunt’s house to sell. There were some complications on their road to happiness.

Great reread

I loved rick and Kendall story. The fake relationship that ends up being real. The surprise child (even though it is a sister not baby). I loved Ed rereading this series and in particular this book. Getting to know the chandler brothers is so good. Carly Phillips never disappoints and getting to read the first series I read of hers is great.
