Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received electronic copy for review
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book description: 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?

My thoughts:  This books is so cute!  It is  light and very fun.  I love the banter and one upping that Taycee and Luke throw at each other.  They really need to resolve all of their issues and get together. :)

Taycee is pulled into being the bachelorette to help save her small town.  The farmers are struggling.  Farms are going under and the remaining farms are trying to survive.  Her best friend comes with the idea to do their own bachelorette show on the internet to raise the needed money to help out the farmers and save the town. Taycee is not informed that she is the bachelorette until the wheels have been in motion for a while.  She really doesn't have a choice but to participate.

Before she knows that she is the bachelorette she nominates Luke to be one of the bachelors.  She is trying to get even with him.  She still is holding a grudge from when she was 14 and he left for college, leaving her and her broken heart behind.  Her goal changes, she is trying to do everything in her power to have him voted off the show.  The viewers get to say who stays and who goes. Her ideas are original and fun.

This book is one of the books that you sit down and read because you need a break.  This book comes at a perfect time for me, because I really need a break! It's clean and fun, my favorite kind.
