The Reluctant Bachelorette by Rachael Renee Anderson
Welcome fellow readers to the book tour and giveaway hosted by Book Blasts and Blog Tours! I have a guest post and review to share with you, and hope you’ll enjoy learning more about The Reluctant Bachelorette and the author Rachael Renee Anderson. Visit the blog tour page for the full schedule.
Unknowingly cast as the bachelorette for her town’s charity event, Taycee Emerson wants out. Especially when she discovers her old teenage crush, Luke Carney, is one of the bachelors and it’s up to the viewers — not her — to decide which bachelors stay or go.
Coerced into participating, Taycee does what any self-preserving girl would do. She launches a subtle attack on Luke’s good name with the hope of getting him voted off the show. Unfortunately, Luke’s an eye-for-an-eye kind of guy, and when he discovers what she’s up to, it means revenge.
But when their pranks go south, will they screw up any chance they have at a future together, or will they be able to forgive and forget and prove that love really does conquer all?

Keep reading for a guest post and my review! Be sure to look through all the tabs for more details.
Years and years ago, when I started writing my first novel (pre-kids), I loved the name Kennedy for a girl. So of course that became the name of my first heroine. A few years later, my first daughter came along — who also received the name Kennedy. Fast forward several years, and that book ended up getting published. I happily dedicated it to my daughter and looked forward to the day when I could place the book in her hands and read the dedication to her.
When the book finally got back from the printer and that day came, something I should have anticipated, but naively didn’t, happened. My two sons asked, “Why isn’t my name in your book?”
So about a year later, my second book came out, featuring Brighton, my oldest son. He was thrilled that his name made it into a book and asked me to read the story to him (keep in mind that he was 9 at the time and Luck of the Draw was a romantic comedy). Against my better judgement, I agreed, and together we read a chapter or two every night. When we finished, I asked, “Did you like it?” “It was okay,” came his response. “Well, what didn’t you like about it?”
“That my name was in it.”
Haha! Your fault, buddy!!!
So onto my third book — Minor Adjustments — featuring child #3, Devon. Equal opportunity, right? But with this book, I took it a step further. Although the mc’s name is Devon, the child in the book (a darling four-year-old boy) was patterned after my Devon — who happened to be four at the time. Which means that someday, when he, too, gets upset with me for writing a love story with his name in it, I can also tell him that little boy who throws temper tantrums was based off of him.
And now, my fourth book, The Reluctant Bachelorette, starring Taycee Lynne (my youngest) is finally out. Although it’s a huge deal for me to see a book make it to the publishing stage, it’s an even bigger deal to know that I have finally evened the score with my kids. Better yet, Brighton is now a fan of my books — or so he says.
It didn’t take much convincing for me to read The Reluctant Bachelorette, and I’m glad I did. It was a thoroughly refreshing, fun read!
You’ve probably watched The Bachelorette or even The Bachelor reality TV series on ABC. The Reluctant Bachelorette follows their format on a much smaller scale. Not for personal gain and glory, but for a good cause.
The very small farming community of Shelter, Colorado is dying and Taycee Lynne’s BFF Jessa has a plan to save it. They’ll have their own Bachelorette show on the Internet! By having viewers purchase votes they’ll make enough money to save the town.
Taycee Lynne is a small-town girl who’s always lived in Shelter, where she owns her own florist shop. She’s been dating, but living a loveless life for years since her teenage heartthrob Luke left town, never to return.
Surprise upon surprise for Taycee Lynne. She’s reluctantly cast as Shelter’s Bachelorette -and- Luke is back to start his own veterinary practice. I won’t reveal more, but you’ll enjoy reading as Taycee Lynne is thrust into dating 20 eligible young men. I will mention that the book has a happy ending and I was delighted to read it.
Rachael Anderson is the author of four contemporary romances: Divinely Designed, Luck of the Draw, Minor Adjustments, and The Reluctant Bachelorette. She’s the mother of four, can’t sing, doesn’t dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
