The Bayside Blogger strikes again! As soon as former "it girl" Carissa Blackwell hits town, she's in the spotlight of the infamous blogger as the town tries to guess why she's back ... and more importantly, if she's returned for her long lost love Jasper Dumont! If you read the first book in the series, you will recognize a good bit of the primary cast, but if you didn't you will be able to pick the gist of the story up just fine. As always, the characters were fun to get to know and their conne ...more

Bidding on the Bachelor is the second book in the Saved by the Blog series by Kerri Carpenter. If you have not read either of these books you are definitely missing out. I have fallen in love with our Bayside blogger who seems to know all. I swear I think she has cameras all over town. This is a second chance romance between Jasper and Carissa.

Carissa left Bayside never to return. Yet life has a few other ideas. You know it likes to kick you when your down and send you running back to the one p

Short, cute & sexy second chance romance! It can be read as a standalone even though it is the second book of the series, although I would love to go back and read about Cam (Jasper's brother) and Elle. Jasper and Carissa's relationship felt real and her friendship with Elle and Riley did too. I loved the hint about who the Bayside Blogger is at the end - can't wait for the next book!

4.5 stars

Are you ready for a second chance? Carissa and Jasper were high school sweethearts and then one day it was over. What would you do if you had a second chance with the one that got away, or the one you left behind?

Kerri has delivered another must read in a series centered around friendships that are all too real, family struggles, and falling in love so hard it changes you forever.

I really loved this book. I'm mad at myself that I didn't read the first book but it's ok. I'll have to reread to get some info on Elle because I was wondering about her and Cam. Second chance romance novels are always ones that make you feel good. I really hope we find out who the blogger is in Book 3. ...more

Bidding On The Bachelor by Kerri Carpenter. Carissa Blackwell and Jasper Dumont were an item ten years ago in high school. Carissa left Jasper without saying why. Now Carissa is back in town. Both still have sparks for each other. A nice romantic story.

This is book #2, in the Saved By The Blog series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

Carissa just wants to start over. She has gone back to her hometown with her tail between her legs following a divorce. Now all she wa

This book was a great story about second chances. When Carissa returns to her hometown to pick up the pieces of her life after a failed marriage, she doesn’t intend on reuniting with her old high school boyfriend, Jasper. Doubts, chemistry and a meddling blogger made this a fun read. Well written with lovely side characters, the epilogue was actually my favorite part :)

Harlequin Books
"Carpenter’s latest in her Saved by the Blog series is a sweet, fun second-chance romance with minimal drama, maximum amour and lots of humor. Her charismatic eclectic costars (especially her mysterious Bayside Blogger), the quintessential small gossipy town and the OMG ending add appeal, but it’s definitely her star-crossed couple’s bumpy road to forever that makes this read fabulous" (4 stars @ RT Book Reviews).
