Synopsis

Billionaire Lucas Oliver is hell bent on revenge. And his plan begins when Sydney Blake-the stunning daughter of his enemy-is tricked into bidding on Lucas at a bachelor auction. Then he serves up a little blackmail...followed by a marriage proposal Sydney has no choice but to accept.

Sydney has been controlled by her family her whole life. When Lucas threatens to reveal her father's shady business, she is once again forced to do her duty for her family. But worse-oh so much worse-is the rush of lust that Lucas ignites in her blood.
Lucas is determined to make Sydney suffer, but it's tough when he can't keep from touching her-or thinking about touching her-all the time. She's not fairing much better since she's engaged to a darkly handsome beast intent on destroying her entire family...along with her heart.

Each book in the Bachelor Auction series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

    Awesome

    When Sydney casually made her bid for the bachelor at the auction, she expected the masked man to be her fiance Tyler. Never did she expect the ruggedly handsome stranger, Lucas Oliver. Really though, what could it possibly hurt to have one dinner with the man. A lot apparently! Lucas Oliver is out for revenge. If it weren't for Sydney's father, his own father would still be alive. He assumes when he forces the man's daughter into an unplanned marriage that cancels out her planned marriage to Tyler it will devastate him. The only problem...his unexpected attraction to Sydney. I really enjoyed this one! It was so much more than the typical fake marriage trope. Lots of emotion, passion, and romance. I definitely recommend this one.

    Great story, lovely ending

    Lucas Oliver is a self-made billionaire. His focus; to destroy Jason Blake, his weapon, his enemy's daughter Sydney. For Sydney, it's out of the frying pan and into the fire. All her life she's done exactly what her family has told her to do and now she's being manipulated by Lucas. For Lucas though, the poor guy really tries to stick to his guns, he really does. But his cold heart is totally unprepared for Sydney's big one. She throws him off his game with her generosity and commitment to the youth centre. She's not at all what he pictured in his mind. And though the plan is to destroy the Blake family, he mans up and does the right thing in the end. I loved the chemistry between Lucas and Sydney. Their single-minded focus and natures are so similar but directed on to completely opposite paths. He's looking for revenge, she's looking for freedom and they both end up finding love. Since this is a series, I hope we will see more of them in the upcoming titles and hopefully more of Aiden and his woman-wooing ways. ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

    Fabulous romance!!!

    Lucas Oliver wanted revenge for events that took place when he was a child. Sydney Blake, the daughter of his target, is his way in. He blackmails her into marrying him but he just can't seem to keep his mind or his hands off of her. Can he stay married to her for the required year and not give into the feelings he doesn't want to be having about her? Fabulous! This author never disappoints. This is a well-written story, that has terrific flow and characters with great depth and personality. Lucas is a sexy billionaire, dark and brooding. Sydney is not your typical beauty but to Lucas she is stunning and everything he didn't know he wanted. This is a beautiful romance! I can't wait to see what's next for this amazing author. Maybe Aiden's story? Review copy provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

    sexy revenge love story!

    This sexy revenge love story is the romance between Sydney and Lucas. Lucas has waited 15 years to enact revenge on Jason Blake, his father’s business partner who had an affair with Lucas’s mother and destroyed their family. The best way to do this? Secretly buy out pieces of Jason’s company until he owns controlling shares and blackmail his daughter Sydney to marry him with threats of revealing her father’s shady business practices to the authorities. A 1 year marriage to Sydney should give him time to enact all his revenge plans, starting with the humiliation of having her break her engagement plans to another man, one who would have provided the wealth her father needs to fix his ailing company. But using innocent Sydney doesn’t give him the satisfaction he expected, especially when he discovers that she is nothing like the vapid society women he’s used to. When he finds himself falling in love with her, will it be too late to come clean and earn her respect and love in return? This was my first time reading this author and I really enjoyed her storytelling style and the plot of this particular romance. I’ve always been partial to enemies to lovers and revenge love stories, so the synopsis of this one quite appealed to me. Sydney comes across as a sweet and friendly woman, one who has blamed herself for many years for a family tragedy that occurred when she was younger and as a result has grown up with guilt and the desire to do anything that would please her parents. This includes marrying a man of their choosing, a family friend from a wealthy family whose partnership with her would ensure a good business investment for both families. She is horrified by Lucas’s accusations against her father, and the knowledge that breaking her engagement and uniting herself with Lucas will destroy what little credibility she has in her parents eyes. But she’s willing to do anything to save her father from jail. Lucas is a hard, bitter man, focused on his revenge. When he meets Sydney, having had his plans for her already laid out before even meeting her, he is struck by her openness and beauty. He doesn’t mind that she isn’t model thin like his usual conquests, and has an instant attraction to her, one that he will be quite happy to act upon if she gives him the right signals. Despite the circumstances, the chemistry between her and Lucas is evident from their first meeting and once the marriage takes place, Sydney decides that if she’s going to be married to this ruthless man, she might as well enjoy the fruits of the bedroom too. Their love scenes are hot and steamy, and full of emotion as Lucas battles his desire for keeping this as a sex only marriage with no real feelings involved. But over time, as they open up their pasts to each other, Lucas realizes that he wants Sydney to know the truth of why he wanted revenge and when Sydney treats him with compassion and understanding he realizes he’s falling in love with this woman who is not what he expected. But he doesn’t reveal all his secrets, and when Sydney finds out the truth of his ultimate plans, the betrayal cuts deep and it’s up to Lucas to convince her that his feelings for her are real and can be the basis of a real marriage. Sydney’s relationship with her parents is complex and changes over the course of the story as her father starts to realize how much he has failed his daughter. Sydney’s mother is a typical society matron, determined to put on a show for the public but with no hesitation to dismantle her daughter and her choices in private. I liked how Lucas stood up to her parents in her defense from the beginning (even though he’s the cause of some of her current problems) and how he becomes aware of how mistaken he was to use her in his plans. Equally, Sydney learns from her relationship with Lucas to stand up for herself and she changes for the better over the course of the story too. Lucas has one true friend, Aiden, who has been with him since high school and their friendship means that Aiden can always be counted on to be truthful with him, including his disapproval of Lucas’s revenge plan and his honesty in telling Lucas the mistakes he is making in using Sydney in this way. I liked their conversations and it was great to see this other side of Lucas, the caring friend side and not just the ruthless businessman. Of course, with Sydney he eventually shows his caring and tender side too so you get a real picture of all the facets of his personality. From the beginning of the story to the end I was entertained by this beauty and the beast tale of a man who wants his revenge but realizes how hollow it will be if he loses the woman he loves. 4.5 stars.
