The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken

The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona, #1)


Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.

Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a fa├žade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . .


Evil sisters, missing shoe, fairy godmother, mice... oh my!!

I really liked Brock in the beginning, when they first met, how he behaved, how he carried the weight of the world on his shoulders... I wanted to know his story.
The twins are like non-other. Silly, crazy... a complete handful.
Jane was a bit of a pushover, I must say, and I'm not sure if finding her backbone so late in the book was enough to redeem herself for me.

There was silly/funny banter, boy-meets-girl, family/brotherly love and a couple sad moments, but overall this Cinderella remake was just an okay read for me.
