Accept This Dandelion ~ Brooke Williams

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. 

My Review:  A local version of The Bachelor with the town’s most eligible male, Ben McConnell, finds Renee Lockhart in the competition. She’s been entered by a co-worker, but sees it as a way to a promotion at the radio station where she works while he has agreed to participate to let everyone know he’s not the womanizer he appears to be.
After a series of mishaps on Renee’s part she agrees with his public image and says so during an interview. Out of all the contestants he’s drawn to her due to her honesty. Her opinion of him slowly changes and they’re falling for each other, but try as she might, she can’t tell him why she originally wanted on the show. Another contestant interferes – will it ruin Renee’s chances?
Ms. Williams skillfully delivered an endearing romantic comedy. Her interpretation of Renee’s characters has this reader rooting for the underdog. Wonderfully entertaining.
