With Valentine's Day slowly approaching I felt like reading some light romantic novels , and what a better way to start with The Bachelor , by Ms Carly Philips . This was the first installment of the Chandler Series

This is the story about the youngest Chandler brother Roman , an international journalist who enjoys his job , his freedom and his bachelorhood more than anything , but everything changes when he was called back home for a family 'emergency' and when he goes back to his hometown he g

The Bachelor is the first book in the Chandler Brothers series by Carly Phillips. I really wanted to go into this book and fall madly in love. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. However, I did get a good base for a series that I still have high hopes for.

Raina Chandler is the matriarch of her family and she’ll stop at nothing to see her 3 sons settled and happy. Faking a heart condition she mentions to the boys that she is to take it easy and avoid stress. If she happens to drop the hint that g

I read the book the Bachelor. I think the author’s purpose was to entertain, and provide a romantic fantasy for readers to escape in. I think this way because it was a fiction piece and the other books she has written have all been fiction as well. She tells a story about love and I think this has no other purpose than to entertain the reader.

I think the theme of this book is: You should never give up on true love. In the story the two main characters: Roman and Charlotte are madly in love but

Chandler Brothers, handsome, honorable, charming, women magnets, all against marriage though... Their father died when they were young, and Raina, their mother, mourned for a long time... (hence anti marriage - anti hurt?)... and they all love their mother a lot...

Charlotte - her father left for Hollywood when she was young, her mother (frail and depressed) refused to go - but they still loved... he would come home periodically, and her mother was only really alive (lively) when he is home... an

Shelves: romance
I don't normally read romance novels, but I picked up this book on a whim. I was looking for a quick and enjoyable beach read; that's exactly what I found. The novel is set outside of my hometown (Albany, NY) which gained my interest from the start. The Chandler brothers are likable characters; I was completely entertained by their girl dramas. For those afraid to read it because it is labled "romance," it wasn't too steamy -- I'm the kind that gets a little embarassed by that. It was just pure ...more

Roman Chandler, the foreign news correspondent, has returned home temporarily to find a wife and get her with child. He then intends to desert her and return to his own life of hunting down the next story. Admirably, he is doing this to appease his ill mother who wants grandkids before she dies. However, this scenario is hardly admirable. he's looking for a broodmare who will live alone with no assistance from her husband.

So I really can't say that I enjoyed this book. Roman is a nice enough gu

(Chandler Brothers #1)

I always like a story about a bad boy! Who don’t right?
I was not 100% sure though when I first started to read The Bachelor what I was going to think about It. It does have it difficulties though. A few times, I was thinking that it could be better and others I found my self lost in the pages.
There are some very interesting characters in the Bachelor.
I found it a fun and sexy read in the end. I am going to have to

I am rating this low mainly because it was a lot more risqué than I like. I had to fast forward through an entire disk because it was a lot more explicit than I like or am used to.

The story wasn't bad and really the only reason I finished the book. I was bothered that the female character blamed her life's problems on her father all the while repeating her mother's problems.
Blaire
OMG!! I laughed so hard!! Raina reminds me sooo much of my great aunt. I could actually picture her in some of the scenarios, especially when discussing "her condition". My mom is reading it now and she has called a couple of times just to laugh at some of Raina's conniving shenanigans! Roman and Charlotte are amazing. I loved the whole story!

Una porquer��a de libro, la autora debe tener un coagulo en el cerebro porque no logra hilvanar un gui��n que no sea lineal al cansancio. En fin, no gaste su dinero ni su tiempo! Si lo hace de todas formas, yo por lo menos no me voy a sentir culpable ya que YO SE LO ADVERTI :)
Kristelle
I enjoyed the love story in the book, The Bachelor. Like Phillips' other novels, this one includes adult romance. I would recommend this novel to people who enjoy books by Jennifer Crusie.
Christi
It's a fun silly romantic story that can keep a single girl dreaming that someday prince charming will come. Best to read during the summer!
Jennifer Probst
Phillips' wonderful series is funny and heartfelt - love her writing!
Holly
I liked the writing and flow of this book. I laughed when the Chandler brothers were together and appreciated the lessons learned about trust and taking chances.

Unfortunately, the whole idea of the story was sooooo unbelievable that it held me back from investing more of myself into the characters. Many times I asked out loud, "seriously?" Having said that, I still thought it was a fun read.

Not interested in reading more of this series. I don't think these characters will hold my attention past

Rating: 3/5
Characters: Average. Disliked the heroine.
Romantic: Not overly so.
Steamy: Absolutely
Funny: Nope
Pacing: Low end of average.
Cover: Cute and kitschy
Ending: Predictable

This was a re-read of a favorite-at-one-point. It is the first Carly Phillips book I had read back in the day. One of my favorite things about her books is her writing voice. Albeit more unique back then. I was drawn into the story again, even though I never really forgot much about the plot and characters. It's a very simp

This book is the literary equivalent of marshmallow fluff… sweet, but all empty calories and in the end, not all that satisfying. The Bachelor opens with the mother of three single, adult men who decides she is going to fake heart problems in order to guilt her sons into granting her greatest wish, that they get married and give her grandbabies. Really? I read this exact same premise in a really bad historical romance, but at least there with the inherited titles and fortunes it made sense. In a ...more

As my granddaughter says when confronted with something she doesn't particularly like "that's not my favorite." The Bachelor hit me that way. After all the hoopla about Kelly Ripa selecting it as a book club book, I thought it would be better.

Raina has had a health scare and her three sons are all very concerned and will do what it takes to make sure she has what she most desires, a married son and a grandbaby. Roman Chandler, the globe trotting foreign news correspondent son, lost the coin tos

After losing a coin toss to his brothers, Roman Chandler must marry and make his mother a grandmother. His mother had a grand scheme to make her 3 boys settle down by exaggerating her illness and telling them that she wants a grandchild before her heart gives out. She didn't intend for anyone to get hurt by her little "lie".

Roman is a foreign correspondent that loves traveling and has no intentions to move back to the small town that he grew up in. Due to his loyalty to his family, he accepts th

Recommends it for: contemporary romance lovers
This is a fun little read that would be great to take along on a trip or to the beach.

Roman Chandler is called home from his work as an AP reporter to look after his mother. She has been taken to the hospital thinking that she is having a heartattack. (turns out is was really indigestion, but she used this and her Dr's confidentiality to fool her sons and convince them to marry) Roman and his brothers flip a coin to see who should marry and have a child to fill their mothers fondest wish.

Will this bad boy make it to the altar?

Foreign correspondent Roman Chandler has always prized his freedom above all else. Now losing a coin toss has sealed this youngest brother's fate. Finding someone to escort down the aisle is the easy part—every wannabe bride in sleepy Yorkshire Falls is itching to get hitched to this gorgeous, globe-trotting Chandler man. But Roman still lusts after the woman who got away. Stunning heartbreaker Charlotte Bronson has come home to put down roots and get her e

2.5 stars.

I’ve got to say that I liked the first half part of it then the ending. I just kind of think that some parts of the book or more accurately the twists that the author think would make things complicated are just based on the characters insecurities and doubts about themselves, Charlotte not wanting to be like her mother who pinned for her absentee father when she realized that she’s falling for Roman Chandler, the guy she dumped before because of his strong resemblance to her dad and t

I'm gonna do this review as a whole for the Chandler clan LOL
I loved all three books. If I was to pt them in order of like it wold go as follows:
1. The Heartbreaker
2. The Playboy
3. The Bachelor
Let me say that all 3 books were very easy to read, cute, fun and witty. And I loved that everyone seemed to be in everyone's book in some capacity. That's my favorite part about reading a series, when an author incorporates previous H/h in further books, especially family series.

Pure drivel.

I can't remember ever thinking a book was completely worthless, but I've reached that point with this one. From it's shaky premise to its cookie-cutter characters, The Bachelor encompasses everything I've come to hate in chick-lit.

Only in a movie would the mother of three sons fake illness in some passive-aggressive plot to get her non-committal sons into starting a family -- and only in a bad novel would the sons acquiesce. The three sons resort to a coin toss to see who will fulfil

3.5 stars. I liked this one. Roman was sweet and determined and Charlotte was a good combination of strong and vulnerable. I think the thing that held me back from giving 4 stars here is that their shared history was so brief and they went from 0-60 in about 2.8 seconds. In other words, the story was written well enough that I could jump on board their train, but I had a hard time when I looked back justifying why I did it. But I can suspend my disbelief and buy into true love, so it's all good. ...more

I read this book in the middle of a Minnesota winter, but it would have been the perfect summer beach read!

The characters are sweet and fun, and I loved the storyline. The panty theft made me laugh.

The meddling mother annoyed me - this is the second series I've started back to back that have had meddling parents/grandparents pushing love on their kids - but that aside, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am part of the way into #2 already.

The Chandler Brothers are going DOWN! The Bachelor (The Chandler Brothers, Book 1) was a cute little romance. There wasn't really much too off the wall about it. I thought that the Chandler brothers were great. I am going to enjoy reading all of their stories.

The Brothers' mom, Raina was a trip. I hope to see more of her. The rest of the small townspeople had been crackin' up as well. I love when the town itself becomes a character in the story.

I thought Charlotte was a little too rigid at time

Recommends it for: people who have addictions to cheesy romance novels.
Cliché'

Girl meets guy. They chase each other. Conflict arises. Yada. Yada. Yada. Eventually everyone lives happily ever after. (I've concluded this and I am only on page 14.)

I suppose this book isn't that bad. I've seen worse. I'm not even sure where exactly I obtained this book, but I thought I would give it a chance. I wouldn't exactly say that the writing is terrible, just the subject matter. The main character in the novel wants to marry someone who will take care of his future child while h

Brenda Margriet
Really like Roman and Charlotte's story. The premise was a bit rocky, in that I find it hard to believe any modern man would marry simply to give his mother grandchildren. But that motive is dropped early, in favour of Roman falling in love with Charlotte, so it didn't bother me too much. And they were such fun people to spend time with I didn't mind in the end.

Ah, I should have known better than to pick up a romance book. These just are not me :-) But it was in the pile given to me years ago and my compulsive nature would not let me skip it. Learned my lesson - again. I've just never been a romance gal. Even as a child my favorites were mysteries with perhaps a romance developing within the mystery, but certainly not the focal point. Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys - those kinds of things. Never did branch into the Harlequin Romance genre.

Hey, it was an e
