Ex-Army sergeant and security expert Cody Matthews recently walked away from his company to work The Lucky B Ranch just outside of Marietta, Montana. The ranch is his refuge, but his hiding out is short-lived when he’s recruited into the Marietta Bachelor Auction and his high school ex-crush bids a small fortune to spend one weekend with him.

Hollywood starlet Haley Dawn O'Malley has had decent, honest, sexy Code Matthews on the brain ever since she left Marietta after high school to pursue her dreams. Now she's back in town and determined to get Code's full attention. 

After losing a female client he shouldn't have gotten involved with, Cody wants no strings, no ties to any woman.  Yet, Hayley isn't about to let the tormented man deny his feelings for her, no matter the threat to her heart.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars-quick and sexy read 3.5 stars--BACHELOR FOR HIRE by Charlene Sands is the first installment in the multi-authored, contemporary adult BACHELOR AUCTION romance series. Marietta, Montana’s medical center is in need of funding for a helipad, and what better way than for Marietta’s high school alumni -the school’s four most popular heroes- to return for Marietta’s Bachelor Auction. This is ex-Army sergeant/security expert Cody Matthews, and Hollywood star Hayley Dawn O’Malley’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Cody and Hayley) BACHELOR FOR HIRE is a second chance romance for two people whose lives went in different directions twelve years earlier. Cody and Hayley were childhood sweethearts; Cody the protector, and Hayley the beautiful young girl who wanted something more in her life. When Hayley headed to Hollywood, Cody and his broken heart enlisted in the Army, and following two tours in the Middle East, Cody returned to the States, and started Code First Security Firm. An invitation to participate in the town’s fund raiser finds Cody back where it all began, facing the woman he lost years before. What ensues is the rekindling of a romance between Cody and Hayley, and the threats against Hayley by an unknown source. The world building focuses on the rebuilding relationship between Cody and Hayley, and Cody’s dogged determination to protect the woman with whom he was once in love. Hayley wants a second chance at love with the man whose heart she broke twelve years earlier but Cody has a hard time letting go of the past-a recent past wherein Cody lost someone he had sworn to protect. When threats against Hayley becomes personal and real, Cody knows that to fall in love with his latest assignment would probably bring heartbreak when Hayley walks away-again. We are introduced to the secondary and supporting characters including the other three potential bachelors up for auction: Nick Palotay, Gavin Clarke and Colt Ewing. Nick’s story will be told in book two-FALLING FOR HER BACHELOR. Cody’s Uncle Brand plays a central role in our hero’s life, and we are also introduced to a number of townsfolk who like to gossip and keep a close eye on the comings and goings of their local heroes. I will admit I did have an issue with the revelation of the ‘guilty’ party. I am not sure if the reasoning made sense; it seems to be a little convoluted and not quite believable but, once again, it is a story meant to entertain, and I was ….entertained. BACHELOR FOR HIRE is a quick and sexy read. The premise is spirited and heartwarming; the characters are a mix of colorful and animated; the romance is a struggle towards a happily ever after.
