The Reluctant Bachelorette Blog Tour

Welcome to the blog tour for The Reluctant Bachelorette by Rachael Anderson!

Unknowingly cast as the bachelorette for her town’s charity event, Taycee Emerson wants out. Especially when she discovers her old teenage crush, Luke Carney, is one of the bachelors and it's up to the viewers--not her--to decide which bachelors stay or go.

Coerced into participating, Taycee does what any self-preserving girl would do. She launches a subtle attack on Luke’s good name with the hope of getting him voted off the show. Unfortunately, Luke's an eye-for-an-eye kind of guy, and when he discovers what she's up to, it means revenge.

But when their pranks go south, will they screw up any chance they have at a future together, or will they be able to forgive and forget and prove that love really does conquer all?

About the Author:
Rachael Anderson is the author of four contemporary romances: Divinely Designed, Luck of the Draw, Minor Adjustments, and The Reluctant Bachelorette. She's the mother of four, can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.


Taycee is having a hard time with men. Mostly because she can't forget one guy in particular. Taycee and her brother were best friends, and they usually had a third member to be a part of all their antics. This third person, Luke, was the apple of Taycee's eye until he left town for college and never contacted her again. A decade later Taycee still can't get over the hurt she feels. These feelings come to a forefront when Luke suddenly shows up back in town, ready to start his own veterinary practice. On top of this, Taycee's friend has signed Taycee up for a charity version of The Bachelorette. Taycee would love to tell her no way, but her entire town is at stake. Will Taycee be able to work her way through tangled romances on and off the show and still manage to save her town?

This was such a cute book! It was a fun mix of reality shows and real life. I felt so bad for poor Taycee. I liked that she had some flaws and was able to acknowledge them. Taycee really had a good heart, and I wanted her to be very happy. Being on a Bachelorette-type show was very out of Taycee's comfort zone, but she did it for love of her town. I liked that Taycee always wanted to do what was right by other people, but she seemed to be thwarted by various things going on. Luke was someone you could get attached to easily too. He was smart and fun, and you could see that he and Taycee had something going from the start.

I breezed through this book very quickly. It was fun to read, and it kept me interested throughout. There weren't any huge surprises in this book, but that's not what this book was about. It was a fun way to escape for a bit. Another thing I loved (and this may seem random), but the chapters were mostly on the shorter side. This made it easy to sneak in some reading in between feeding kids and vacuuming and everything else I do in the day without having to stop in the middle of important things. Of course, I didn't want to stop at all, but that's another issue altogether. Overall this was a very cute book that will have you cheering for Taycee and hoping for an awesome romance for her.
