Title: Hot Bachelor
Author: Katie McCoy
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 28, 2017


Dash Hennessy is the hottest bachelor in the country, looking for love in front of an audience of millions… He just wasn’t supposed to pick ME! 

I just landed my dream summer gig: working as a production assistant on TV’s smash-hit reality show, Ever After. Two months of sun and fun at the beach? Sign me up! Until the moment I come face to face with this season’s bachelor, racing’s bad boy Dash - aka, the mysterious hottie I just hooked up with at a creepy motel off the I-80.

Can you say, awkward?

Dash is sexy, charming - and totally off-limits. But the chemistry between us is way too hot to ignore. He’s playing to win, and he’s got his sights set on the prize: me!

Soon, the action is heating up off-screen. But between ratings-hungry producers, back-stage drama, and twelve of the most cutthroat glamazon contestants known to womankind, I’m in way over my head. Can I find my happily-ever-after, or will it be lights, camera, heartbreak? 

The Bachelor gets a rom-com twist in Katie McCoy’s hilarious, sexy new read! 

I enjoyed this title overall. It is light, and it is a romantic comedy, and those elements kept the book fun and also moving along fairly quickly from plot point to plot point, although at times a little too quickly over things that maybe could have had more explanation.

I loved the idea that Dash was "The Suitor" and that Paige an production assistant on the set...essentially a modern day royalty and commoner romance that was fun to watch them navigate. I liked the set up, the fact that it made them explore the attraction that was between them when they met on a flight.

The humor was a lot of fun, and the missed opportunities for them to have time together added a humor and a frustration to their relationship.

All in all, I enjoyed this, but at the same time, it felt like there was something lacking in the relationship and the connection between Paige and Dash. not enough to ruin the book, but enough to make this feel like a very light romance without a lot of emotion. This is often the case with the romantic comedy genre, as a lot of time is spent in the development of the humor, so it's not necessarily something that was a surprise, but I did feel that it took away from the emotional connection I felt for their relationship.

I still enjoyed it, and I do recommend the title.

This was a fun book, and a quick, light read. I've read some heavier books lately and this rom com really lightened things up for me. I enjoyed the peek into the world of reality TV as well. I confess I never watch reality dating shows but I sure like reading about them. 

I liked the concept of this book. The contestant of the a hit reality show falling for someone on the crew? kind of fairytale-esque and I really enjoyed that. I liked both Paige and Dash as people. I enjoyed them together. They had a good rapport, a good banter, but I wanted just a bit more. I wanted a little more depth from Paige, and feel if I had gotten to know her a little better I would have enjoyed this book even more.

The writing here was smart and quick. The plotting moved along fairly well, but again, because I wanted to know more about Paige there were some things that I think got glossed over. I did love the supporting characters here. They enhanced the story between these two in all the right ways.

If you're a fan of reality TV you're going to like this behind the scenes peek into that world that this book gives. This was a fast, light read, perfect for the summer. I do recommend this book.
