Jane isn’t entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn’t she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes—or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire—maybe do exist.
Except Brock Wellington isn’t anyone’s dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk—even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it’s karmic retribution that he’s tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can’t have. But while they can’t have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . .
Once upon a time, Boring Brock and Plain Jane spent most of their lives living for everyone else, hoping to keep their family intact after the deaths of their parents. Both seem to be battling demons and running from ghosts, which doesn’t allow them anytime to live their own lives or be free to choose who and what they want to be.
But then one day, a fairy godfather gives Jane a way to get away from her sisters and see who she is without taking care of everyone but herself, and even though she feels like quite the pauper and has no reason to think a prince like Brock would be attracted to her because she’s just a maid, magical things occur and Brock and Jane’s attraction to one another force both of them to truly question how they’ve been living and what they plan to do to get out from underneath their self-appointed prisons.
And even though there’s a deadline of three weeks – when everything turns back into what it’s always been, if Brock can find the will to say no and Jane can find the courage to trust him, perhaps when the clock strikes for the auction, the future Mrs. Brock Wellington will be a woman who wants his heart not his money.
I absolutely adore modernized fairy tales. They are pure escapism from the crazy, cruel world we live in, and Rachel Van Dyken’s The Bachelor Auction does a great job of spinning Cinderella’s tale into a contemporary love story. Brock and Jane is the perfect pair for this story because they understand the need to take care of what’s left of their family even though it’s a role that’s slowly destroying them, and while they may come from two different worlds, their personalities complement one another and allow them to heal some of the wounds from their pasts.
Anytime readers are allowed time with Grandma Nadine, we know that there’s bound to be some shenanigans heading our way because she takes her fairy godmother role to heart and does everything in her power to accomplish whatever she feels is necessary, and because Brock and Jane seem to be in a stalemate due his grandfather’s grand auction plans, it’s going to take Grandma Nadine’s magic and conniving to ensure a happily ever after happens for Brock and Jane as long as the couple gets out of their own way.
