A Bid For Love

To FBI agent Asher Hall, offering himself to the highest bidder for a charity auction seemed like nothing more than good fun for a good cause. A romantic weekend in Italy, a chance to meet someone special, could be just what he needs. Until his anonymous "owner" turns out to be far more—and far more male—than he counted on.

Fellow FBI agent Scott Jamison has one chance to g

I really liked this story about two FBI agents who discover love. Actually, Scott decides to finally seduce Asher, after years of secretly loving him. Asher struggles a lot less with the new situation than I, or he, expected.

I loved the setup of a charity auction and the shocked surprise when Asher discovers who "paid" for his time. The romantic weekend in Italy was well described and I enjoyed the exotic locale along with the characters. What followed the weekend was a bit "fast", but I still e

Ok m/m romance about an FBI agent who participates in a charity auction and is "purchased" by an anonymous bidder he assumes to be a woman. Ah, the surprise that awaits him when he and the bidder meet up in Italy. Sadly, the language was too flowery and overwrought for my tastes.

The first time I read a book by this duo, McKinney and Wylis, I was surprised by the romance in it; actually it took me a bit to read that book because it was about two FBI agents falling in love under dangerous situations, and I was not sure that was an environment where the romance could grow strong but romantic. I was surprised that time, and so I was not this time. The setting is more or less the same, again two FBI agents, again two men who know each other in a office contest but that haven ...more

The language was just too much for me. I tend to like syrupy stories but this just was too much and unrealistic. I wanted to like this story and the story line and plot had lots of possibilities. It just was difficult to see the good with the rest.

I wrote it so I can't very well review it. :)

Have you ever read a romance, that the MC read a stereotypical romance out loud? Burning Loins, and syrupy dialog, and all? That's what this felt like. The MC's cheesy romance novel, that is inside your romance novel.

I wanted to like this, I really did. I liked the idea of Scott revealing his feelings the way he did...but it just went down hill from there. I kept thinking, once the weekend was over, things would pick up. But they got worse. They were supposed to be FBI, but they didn't seem like

Summary Review: A delightfully fun read that makes me want to auction myself, too!

The Review:

Asher Hall is frequently the butt of jokes in the office. People suspect he is gay because he likes roses, poetry and opera. It doesn’t matter that his last relationship was with a woman named (!) Poppy. Still, he puts himself up for auction, offering a weekend in Italy as the date, hoping to possibly meet someone.

Scott Jamison has silently been in love with his FBI teammate Asher for years. He’s bise

This was the first time I'd read Rachel Ann Nunes, brought about by curiosity of the plagiarism of which she was a victim. I, quickly, had to buy the next two books in the series and read them, as well. Now I am a dyed-in-the-wool fan! Not only is she a gifted writer, but a clean one, as well. Very fun (albeit a little wild) stories!
2 1/2 stars

This was really cheesy and the dialogue grated on my nerves. It was cloyingly sweet and over the top. If that aspect had been toned down it would have been an okay story if a bit on the boring side. I did quite like Asher and Scott but they said Darling and love too many times for me to take them seriously.

Sigh...this was lyrical and fun. I know that seems an odd pairing...but it worked so beautifully. I loved the characters: the way they interacted, their quirks, their insecurities. I wanna hang out with these boys cause 1) they're pretty, 2) they live to the max, and 3) did I mention they were funny too?

If there's one thing to say about this story is that it's so fluffy that it gave me a toothache. Cute but I didnt find it really deep but an enjoyable read nonetheless. Recommended to anyone searching a light romance.

It just didn't do it for me. it was too sugary. dearest, darling were just used too much and just didn't sound right with the characters. SOrry to say I was disappointed.

More like a 3.5. I LOVED the story. It was the writing that bugged me a bit. I thought it was not well edited. Felt very choppy. But the characters and the story were incredible.

Good story, the romantic scenes were a little uninspiring though. I like my love scenes hot and these were just luke warm...

An okay romance but a bit too flowery and the wording just didn't sound right or fit the characters.
