She's no Sleeping Beauty. And he's definitely no prince . . . Margot McCleery could have lived her whole life without seeing Bentley Wellington again-her ex-best friend and the poster boy for Hot, Rich Man-Whores everywhere. But Margot's whiskey-augmented grandmother "buys" Bentley at a charity bachelor auction, and now suddenly he's at her door. Impossibly charming. Impossibly sexy. And still a complete and utter jackass. Bentley's just been coerced by his grandfather to spend the next thirty days charming and romancing the reclusive red-haired beauty who hates him. The woman he abandoned when she needed him the most. Bentley knows just as much about romance as he knows about love-nothing. But the more time he spends with Margot, the more he realizes that "just friends" will never be enough. Now all he has to do is convince her to trust him with her heart . . .


My Thoughts:  The Playboy Bachelor, which is the second installment in Rachel Van Dyken's Bachelors of Arizona Series, provides its reader with quite an entertaining story.  Bentley Wellington, the younger brother of Brock, who was the the bachelor featured in The Bachelor Auction.  He's also a twin, and the third Bachelor, whose book will come out next, is Brantley, Bentley's other half.  Bentley is pretty much, well not exactly pretty much, he is a manwhore.  He was also purchased at the Bachlor Auction by his grandfather and Margot's grandmother, who are both quite scheming.  Margot and Bentley have a past, who that was completely shattered in more ways than one, years ago by a horrible tragedy. 

Years have past, but the hurt and pain behind what happened in the past, misconstrued by both Margot and Bentley, has left a well of heartache in its place.  Margot is an author and a recluse, and Bentley, well Bentley is a jerk, but he's a funny and hot one, and he definitely grows on you to the point you can't help but like him.  Both of them use their own vices to cover their pain and their shame, but as they spend more time together, the walls begin to come down and the chemistry that has always been there boils right up to the top and runs over.

They go through a lot before they share their secrets and begin to work through their pain. There is a lot of humor and heartache in the mix, but it's all worth it in the end.  The Bachlor Playboy is a great second installment in this series by Rachel Van Dyken and one definitely worth checking out.
