Renee Lockhart has her eye on a lofty goal…to fill the open position of morning radio show host at the station where she works. When her co-workers sign her up for a local TV version of The Bachelor, Renee goes along with it in order to raise her profile.
Upon seeing her bumbling audition, Ben McConnell, one of the most eligible bachelors in town, insists that Renee be placed on the show. But Ben gets much more than he expected in Renee… he gets a girl who can’t seem to do anything right…and a girl he can’t seem to resist.
Renee is a naturally lovely person, attractive inside and out. Her friends and co-workers at the radio station know that she has worked hard and hasn’t done much dating so they sign her up for a local TV version of The Bachelor. Renee doesn’t expect to find love but she hopes that she can put on a good appearance to the audience gaining recognition that could help her get the open position as the important morning radio show co-host.
Renee is different from the other a flawless model contestents. She bravely portrays more of the natural girl she is. Her less than perfect interview answers grab the attention of the bachelor who has remained secret. He tells the producer to keep her in the running and even takes one of her answers to rename the show to “Accept This Dandelion”.
Handsome and wealthy Ben McConnell is one of the town’s most sought after bachelors. He has decided this TV show will give him the chance to look for a serious relationship that could help him to dispel his playboy reputation. Although most of the female contestants are gorgeous, shining beauties he really hopes to find someone who shines from the inside too.
Initially Renee isn’t interested in the sort of man Ben is rumored to be, but she soon learns there is more substance to him and finds herself falling for him. Renee manages to do something accidentally bumbling in every episode. Although the producer is frustrated by her, Ben find’s her genuine character surprising and endearing. Ben and Renee clearly have a strong attraction but he is restricted by the show to act upon it and the further along things go the more she realizes that she should guard her heart.
But Renee has kept back a secret that could change Ben’s attitude and break Renee’s heart. Can the pair get past the glitz and rules of the show to begin, or continue, an honest relationship?
Renee’s bumbling incidents are fun and create good opportunity to expose more of the characters. Even though it is clear there will be a clash to pull the two apart, it was still fun to see the reactions and the recovery, which was charmingly done. Although I noted a couple of repetitions and typo errors they did not detract from my enjoyment.The writing flows well and reads quickly. I really enjoyed the cute, sweet story and I would enjoy reading more by Ms. Williams. I recommend this as a fun, light, easy romance.
