MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4 Stars!
"Out of all the stupid things I could have said and done, insulting the rich and influential guy who could make or break our business has probably topped the charts. Calling someone a creep isn’t so bad, is it?"
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.
“The bachelor” aka Tyler Becks isn’t old and ugly. He isn’t very business-like, either. In fact, it’s hard to imagine that someone with his brain and bank account can be this sexy.
He understands our cash-strapped situation and is kind enough to cancel the bid. Let us out of the contract. No hard feelings. Or so he claims.
He’s even kind enough to want to work with us. With me, in particular. I can’t refuse, even though working for him means I have to see him every day. My future depends on it.
I won't let my guard down. I won't fall for him, and particularly not now that I know he’s hiding something from me. Everything comes at a price. Even Tyler’s generosity.

4 “Lucky” Stars!
I loved this read! Simple as that.
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!
Emily Harding and her bff Brenda Walsh, have been struggling with their two-woman publicist company for the past two years, since they graduated college. Seems no one in the big city of New York will give them a starting chance to show off their skills. Brenda comes up with another one of her schemes and uses the last of their money to buy tickets to a charity auction in hopes to spread their business name. But when Tyler Becks CEO of Becks International, puts himself on the auction block, Brenda goes a little crazy bidding money they don’t have.
When Tyler comes to collect, Emily tells him they can’t pay and embarrassingly slinks away, but it seems Tyler Becks isn’t ready to give up just yet. So he set in motion a plan to win the girl.
I loved this read! Simple as that.
Emily was very cautious when she comes face to face with Tyler again. After her degrading meet-greet with the sexiest man she’s ever laid eyes on, she’s shocked to find he’s hired her company ... specifically her, to work for him.
Things are tense and you know what's coming from the start. There aren’t really any surprises, but the story itself is told in a cute, sexy way and I loved watching Emily lose herself in a man she obviously wanted.
Tyler was hot! This novella is told strictly from Emily’s POV and I wish we could have gotten insight into Tyler’s POV, because he was intense and those moments when he was staring at his phone in confusion, I would have loved to have known what he was thinking. The author does a good job of relaying that to the reader, but still, getting his inner thoughts would have been fun.
The Wrap Up:
The author packs a lot of story into just a few chapters and I found myself grinning like a love sick fool by the end, excited to see if these characters got their HEA.
A must read!
