Book Review: Romancing the Bachelor (Hamilton Family #2) by Diane Alberts

Eric Hamilton isn’t looking for love. Hell, he isn’t even looking for a girl. He has a five-year plan, and he’s one hundred percent focused on that. But then Shelby walks into his life, and suddenly, he can’t think about anything else. Unfortunately for him, she hates his guts, and wants nothing to do with him. But he’s a man who loves a challenge.

Shelby Jefferson can’t wait to get out of the city, and back to her country roots. She moved to Atlanta for a guy who promptly left her, and the last thing she wants is to fall for another man who might make her want to stay. But Eric is nothing if not persistent, and before long she’s inside his arms, in his bed, and falling for him. Hard. But when history repeats itself, she’s left having to choose between a man and herself…again.


I positively just blew through this book. I sat down to read it in the morning and then all of the sudden I was at the end of the book and I have no clue where those hours went. I was completely immersed. 

I think what may have drawn me so deep into the book were the characters. Every single thing about Shelby and Eric was absolutely perfect. Shelby is this snarky little spitfire that will just tell you how it is. While this does come off as icy at times, I found myself frequently saying "DAAAAMMMMNNN" and then being jealous that she is so confident that she can just say whatever is on her mind. And Eric ... this man is stubborn and has just enough cockiness to back it up. It was sexy as hell. The poor man is completely oblivious though ... I don't want to tell you why ... it would spoil the surprise but it is definitely eyeroll worthy. I may have even called him an idiot. Both of these characters were just awesome and the further I got into the book, the more I got a kick out of how both of them were painfully blunt. Both of them! It created some definite sparks between them and made the book that much more exciting. 

The plot was great, the storyline was awesome. I literally read this book in one sitting and I wish that I didn't plow through it so quickly but I'm a greedy reader. I just couldn't get enough. Now I just need to read the rest of the books in the series because I have a feeling that they are all just as awesome.
