Hot Southampton doctor Carson Reynolds isn't the kind of man Gemma Carr should be playing with. But his offer of a fake engagement comes with sexy, late night house calls, and despite her bad girl reputation, it's been far too long since she's taken two and called anyone in the morning.

When Carson sees Gemma at a charity event, he knows he has to have her. It's been ten years since he's had her in his arms, but that hasn't lessened his intense need for her. To save her reputation and get his parents off his back, he makes her an offer she can't refuse. It's the perfect set-up--until this fake engagement starts to feel a little too real...

I found Engaging the Bachelor to be a sweet, quick read.

This is my first time reading Cathryn Fox – a friend is in town and she basically shoved her eReader in to my stomach when I told her this. Read this! she demanded, lol.

It was a super quick read – although I did skim the sex scenes and the TSTL ending – and I was finished in less than 2 hours.

I really like Carson and Gemma. They make a sweet and happy couple with 0% drama between them. I liked Carson a lot but, unfortunately, I thought Gemma was a dumb as a sack of bricks. She and her BFF have this bad habit of talking about personal stuff – like faking engagements with the town’s most eligible bachelor – whilst out and about shopping. WHO talks about such personal and potentially scandalous things while in public?? FFS

I also had a problem with the “bad guy” being a jealous potential other woman. Come on, already. That part was just a little tacky.

Other than that, Engaging the Bachelor was a fun and quick read.
