THE BACHELOR CONTRACT by Rachel Van Dyken
(; Forever Mass Market; $7.99; The Bachelors of Arizona Book 3)
A second-chance romance from the #1 New York Times bestseller of The Bet, Matchmaker and Elite series!
Love of his life.
The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.
And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.
Brant Wellington was certain of three things:
Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.
He really was losing his F-ing mind.
And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

“Rollercoaster of emotions, 5 stars”
If you have read the other two Bachelor books by RVD you know that Brant is a hot mess. If you haven’t that’s okay, you’ll figure it out soon enough. RVD takes us through a rollercoaster of emotions. I was so into the story that I didn’t move and forgot about my wine glass that was sitting right next to me until I hit the last page.
Brant is a disaster. I never expected to like him. But then I found out why he was a mess and I could understand it. And then when Nikki came back into his life he started lashing out until he decided it was time to man up and take what was his. Then I fell a little bit in love with him while he was busy working on making Nikki love him back. I thought he was the typical spoiled rich boy, but that is so far off the mark it’s not even funny.
Nikki is resilient. If I went through half the stuff she went through I don’t think I would handle it with near the grace she did. She has had a hard four years, but she’s made it with the help from her best friend. When her ex shows back up she doesn’t know what to do. Does she go with the man she still loves but left her broken hearted? Or does she start over with the man who’s been by her side through it all?
I loved everything about this story. All the characters were spot on. At one point I was really expecting everyone to have either team Nikki or Brant signs. I loved how RVD rounded out the Wellington family and I will cross my fingers that she gives Cole Masters a story of his own.
Writing style- 5/5
It was Brant.
Maybe that was because they’d never had any real closure. Just fighting, yelling, and then silence.
God, she’d hated the silence so much more than the yelling.
The silence crackled with tension—it was always filled with more meaning than when words were actually spoken.
It wasn’t the yelling that had killed their relationship.
It was the silence that had followed. When he had every opportunity to fix it—and didn’t.
Why was it so hard to move on? Probably because she hadn’t tried.
Instead, she’d worked. Tried to stay positive. And hoped.
Damn hope. Stupid hope.
“He’s not coming back for me,” she whispered, knowing that if she finally admitted he wasn’t coming, she would have to take her part of the blame in why. Because it wasn’t just on him to come running back. A small part of her knew that it was her job to meet him halfway. Instead, she’d ignored the need in his eyes, the desperate plea in his voice, and allowed grief to swallow her whole. Because at the time she’d needed someone to blame, and it was easier blaming him than herself.
