She was the villain The Bachelor fans loved to hate. Now Courtney Robertson takes us along on her journey to find love and reveals that "happily ever after" isn't always what it seems . . .

Courtney Robertson joined season 16 of The Bachelor looking for love. She fit the casting call: She was young, single, a working model, and a natural in front of the cameras. Although she may have been there for all the right reasons, as the season unfolded and sparks began to fly something else was clear: She was not there to make friends.

Courtney quickly became one of the biggest villains in Bachelor franchise history. She unapologetically pursued her man, steamrolled her competition, and broke the rules—including partaking in an illicit skinny-dip that sealed her proposal. Now, Courtney tells her own story—from her first loves to her first moments in the infamous Malibu mansion. She dishes on life before, during, and after The Bachelor, including the tabloid frenzy that continued after the cameras stopped rolling. Complete with tips, tricks, and advice from your favorite Bachelor alumni, I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends is packed with all of the outrageous stories and details Courtney fans and foes alike want to know.

A model and actress, Courtney Robertson has appeared in numerous print, runway, and television campaigns and in the pages ofVogue,Self,InStyle, andFitnessmagazines. She lives in Santa Monica, California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read it! I absolutely loved this book. I will start by saying that I am a Bachelor fan therefore these books are very entertaining to me. If you know who Courtney is, or loved the Bachelor franchise and want some extra gossip and some extra scoop, this book is definitely for you. She also includes some personal stuff about her life growing up. I had a bit more sympathy for her once I finished reading her book since she didn't get the best edit on the show. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Entertaining! The Bachelor franchise is one of my guilty pleasures so I've read quite a few of these types of books...this was by far one of the best ones! It had so much behind the scenes gossip that I loved! I wasn't a fan of Courtney when I watched her season but this book really showed her in a different light and by the end of the book, I actually really liked her. If you're a fan of the show, you should definitely check this book out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Her side of the story This book was interesting because I often wonder what the villain's side of the story would be. I always like learning about the behind-the-scenes of the Bachelor so I enjoyed this book, but I'm not sure that I identify with her and fully understand her. I question how honest some of her stories and anecdotes are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book with all the drama As a Bachelor fan, I really loved this book. I thought it was amazing even though I didn't watch her season (because Ben was boring enough for one season).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great I really enjoyed reading Courtney's story, and I actually found this to be pretty well written as well. She divulges a lot of juicy things, not just about the bachelor world, but also about some celebs she dated. Very fun read, I couldn't put it down. Of all the bachelor books out there, I would say this one is the must-buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book as a fan who watched the season she was on. It gave a lot of good background info into the bachelor/bachelorette journey.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Was Good. I enjoyed reading this book; however it wasn't my favourite Bachelor memoir that I have read. But you get good behind the camera gossip about what went down during her season of the Bachelor. It by no means was bad but Ben F and Courtney were not my one of my favourite seasons. But I did love reading juicy details about other relevent Bachelor alumni.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED THIS I am a huge Bachelor fan. I remember watching Courtney's season on TV and even though she was the villain, I really liked her. It was so interesting to see her perspective. Prior to reading this book, I read some of the other books written by Bachelor alums, and this was by far my favourite one. It was hilarious and juicy and I craved more. #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth the read I am not a Bachelor fan, but picked this book up on a whim. It reads very much like an episode of reality television, but I couldn't put it down. It's salacious in its contents and is well worth the few hours it will take you to read.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quick and Easy Read I bought this book and read it in a day. I enjoyed learning some of the behind the scenes information I wasn't aware of before, as a fan of The Bachelor. It didn't really change my opinion of Courtney that much, and I wasn't a Ben F fan to start with. Easy read, nice for all Bachelor fans!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for you Bachelor fans The book isn’t well written, there’s a lot of cheesy humour and the grammar is subpar, but if you’re reading this book, chances are you’re not reading it for it's literary genius. She tries to defend herself a little too much with the same excuse of “it’s taken out of context” or “I was trying to be funny”. If you're mean, you're mean, just own up to it. But it gives some fun behind the scenes action for one of the most popular reality shows of all time, so that's at least an interesting component of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun! I had a lot of fun reading this book! As a Bachelor fan, it gives you a lot of insight of what happens behind the scenes, and what it is like to date in such a public setting. Also a great backstory of how the famous evil Courtney came to be. I understood her more after reading this book and had a blast reading it.
