Luke Carney has no idea what possessed him to move back to Shelter Springs, Colorado, to set up his veterinarian practice. His parents have long since left, the small farming community is on the brink of extinction, and only one close friend from his childhood remains--Taycee Emerson, his best friend’s little sister, who isn’t so little anymore.Review: Rating- 5
Then there’s the matter of Shelter’s Bachelorette, an online reality dating show created to raise some much needed funds for the town.
Unwittingly cast as the bachelorette, Taycee wants out, especially when she discovers that Luke, her childhood crush, is back in town and will be one of the bachelors. To make matters worse, it's up to the viewers--not her--to decide which bachelors stay or go. And they all seem to like Luke.
Unwilling to let him break her heart again, Taycee launches a subtle attack on Luke’s good name with the hope of getting him voted off the show. But she’d forgotten that Luke's an eye-for-an-eye kind of guy, and when he discovers what she's up to, it means revenge.
Rachael Anderson delivers another great story with characters that are relatable, scenes that make you feel every emotion they're going through, and a couple you can't help but root for.
This book is about a small farm town going under. Taycee's best friend, Jessa, has organized a fundraiser called Shelter's Bachelorette. Taycee is the Bachelorette and she's in this game dating 21 guys, one of which is a guy she was in love with when she was a teenager, but he up and left and never thought to call and talk to her again. Over the past decade she's dated a lot of guys just to end it before it gets too serious.
When Luke becomes a contestant on the show Taycee knows she has to sabotage it so that she can protect her heart. As the game progresses there are a few guys who are promising candidates. Before long Taycee is mixed up in confused feelings and stuck in a game show with everyone watching her every move.
I really enjoyed the fun banter throughout, the sarcasm, and Luke's goading. I absolutely loved the epilogue! I wish there was a sequel where we see Taycee expand her florist business into her dream business.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
