Funny and safe read.
Hero was NOT a manwhore -> hurrah!
And I liked the heroine, she made him work for her attention *lol*

This story had a potential for a longer book.

Zero OW! The heroine wasn't a virgin. No slut-shaming. No OP at all.

I have to say novellas are pretty much hit or miss for me and this one was a hit! This is my first time reading anything by this author and I enjoyed the story, the plot flowed and the characters were enjoyable. I loved the tension between Tyler and Emily throughout the story, I also liked the banter with Lucky as well. Once you read it will all make sense. When the book was over I was wishing it was longer! I will definitely be checking out more back titles from this author!

Did I need to add to the already skyrocketing temps of mid summer? Absolutely I did when it came to this hot little read! Oh how I have missed Jessica and her men. I never know whether I should hug them, smack them or both.
When Emily gets roped into going to an auction with her best friend/business partner Brenda she's totally out of her element, and her mind is spinning a mile a minute. Particularly the moment Brenda bids of the man of the evening and places the winning bid. But not in her own

All is fair in love and business…

My friend’s plan is pretty simple: win the bachelor auction in a charity event and get the most influential man to sign a business deal with us. It’s a do or die situation. But plans rarely go as you would expect.

When the bids begin to take ginormous proportions, my friend can’t stop in her rush of excitement. We don’t have the money. We can’t afford him, and yet, before I can even comprehend what’s happening, we’re the highest bid.

This is a sizzling, short and sassy romance read. This story is told pretty much through Emily’s POV.
Tyler and Emily originally meet at the auction, when Emily’s business partner bids on a date with Tyler for business purposes. Emily’s business partner overbid too much and didn’t have the money there after winning. Tyler Becks CEO of Becks International is the hot bachelor who was bid on, and won. He is this sexy character who really has good motives for going thru this each year. Tyler looks t

The blurb pulled me in for this new to me author. Emily Harding and her business partner Brenda invest the last of their savings attending an auction where they hope to win a date with single and successful business tycoon Tyler Becks. Everything Tyler touches turns to gold, and Brenda firmly believes that he is the one that can put their business on the map. Emily doesn’t want to have anything to do with Brenda’s plan, but as they are out of options she goes along with it all.

There was a lot t

J.C. Reed is definitely one of those authors I always decide to read. After reading her Surrender You Love series I was hooked on her books. The books are always super sexy with hot alpha-male characters that totally have you swooning. The stories are unique and hold a bit of mystery that is difficult to find after reading 300+ books a year for five years. Needless to say, The Bachelor Auction had some high expectations to live up to.

This is not my first book by this author and it won't be my last. I had fun relaxing and reading this book. It was the perfect beach read for me. It was quick, easy, blunt, to the point. You were pulled in quickly from the get-go. The perfect lazy day read. I laughed out loud at times.

I may be the minority here but I really liked this book. I know he is pompous and arrogant. Especially when he was at the auction. I just can't help but like him. He is a bit of an alpha and he is career driven.

I found this book discounted on Amazon via eBookDiscovery; this is my honest review.
-Entertaining to say the least. Funny, sad, and a bit creepy for sure.
-In real life, I would stay away from Brenda as a BFF or partner in business.
-Predictable. You could see where this was going but without boredom. Loved the surprise at the end.
-I didn't like that the book finished at 72% to give us a sneak peek of another one. Romance, for one, was lacking and could have been worked on better.
-Open door scenes

I thought this was an OK read, but it finished way before the end of the book.
In my opinion, the Surrender your Love series is the best series that J.C. Reed has written so far.
This was a lighthearted romantic read, but the romantic suspense of SYL, and the dual locations of New York and Italy made that series something special. More of that, please.
This was OK, but there are a lot of rom-coms around, and the suspense is more gripping.

This was a great, short romance and I read it in one sitting.

Tyler and Emily originally meet at the auction, when Emily’s business partner bids on a date with Tyler for business purposes. I enjoyed how they interacted with each other, both for business and pleasure.

I really loved this little story and would have loved to see more from them.

That's where it ends. At least it was only .99.
The heroine was annoying. There's nothing likable about a woman who thinks like a hormonal teenager.
The H is ok. Yeah he confirmed who she was in a shady way, but she looked through his phone without permission. Tit for Tat.

I really liked the idea of this book. I was excited to jump in and get to know these characters. This was a super fast paced novella that made it a little difficult for me to get into the characters and story line. I liked the characters but really felt like I was missing out on connecting with them. It was a good read just a little bit too fast for me personally.

Different

Nice, clean, free flowing story. Where a young woman finds herself attached to this pain in the ass of a Greek God. After her best-friend bided on him, for charity and won him for one dinner date. In the hopes of helping them. The question is, will she give in to temptation or keep him at arms length or run?

Awesomeness, Sexual, Drama and Romance this book was all that and more! Funny how much two people who wanted each other found what they were looking for found each other after all that sexual relationship between the two lovers in this book. A delish book contained exceptional relationship between them! ENJOY!

Storyline is very nice.

Story ended too quickly. In general, J C Reed’s stories are very deep,lovely and meaningful. Storyline is pretty good, but I think this book didn’t reach the authors level.

The Review:
Fun, entertaining and super sexy, The Bachelor Auction was definitely a win! This novella was short and steamy and gave me those delicious tummy flutters I love so much. This isn’t my first read by J.C. Reed but it might be my favorite. I absolutely loved Tyler Becks! Yum!

The Bachelor Auction is a quick and sexy read. One hot sexy alpha businessman becomes distracted by a beautiful woman who needs to land a business deal to save her company. I really like the flirty banter and slow tease in the story that leads up to one steamy connection.

Going once... Going twice...

Quick read about a small start up, having confidence, online dating, and a pushy billionaire. You may wonder how all of those things can fit together in a novella, but they do. Story takes place in New York City and Las Vegas. Has teasing, innuendo, and electricity. And now a bit about the story...

Emily and her business partner, Brenda, bought tickets to a charity auction they can't afford. Their small business is about to go under. But it they can just land one big c
