Love of his life.
The last person in the world he wanted to see...ever.
And now that he's working beside her every day, he can't escape her. Her scent, glimpses of her smile, even the tension in the air that makes his body hum with the kind of need he'd only experienced with one person-all of it is driving him over the edge.
Brant Wellington was certain of three things:
Alcohol wasn't going to solve this.
He really was losing his F-ing mind.
And his gorgeous ex-wife was going to be the death of him.

The Bachelor Contract by Rachel Van Dyken Blog Blitz excerpt
It was Brant.
Maybe that was because they’d never had any real closure. Just fighting, yelling, and then silence.
God, she’d hated the silence so much more than the yelling.
The silence crackled with tension—it was always filled with more meaning than when words were actually spoken.
It wasn’t the yelling that had killed their relationship.
It was the silence that had followed. When he had every opportunity to fix it—and didn’t.
Why was it so hard to move on? Probably because she hadn’t tried.
Instead, she’d worked. Tried to stay positive. And hoped.
Damn hope. Stupid hope.
“He’s not coming back for me,” she whispered, knowing that if she finally admitted he wasn’t coming, she would have to take her part of the blame in why. Because it wasn’t just on him to come running back. A small part of her knew that it was her job to meet him halfway. Instead, she’d ignored the need in his eyes, the desperate plea in his voice, and allowed grief to swallow her whole. Because at the time she’d needed someone to blame, and it was easier blaming him than herself.

Once upon a time Brandt found the kind of love that most people only dream about finding, and it lead to a marriage, but then life got in the way, feelings got hurt, hearts bruised and then he lost that love. And it has haunted him everyday since, if only he had done things differently, tried a little harder to hold onto it, then maybe he wouldn't be so miserable now. He has tried to move on from what he had with his wife, but no matter how many nameless/faceless women have followed him home and into his bed, she still manages to find a way to mess with his head and his heart. His family sees how he is struggling to move on, and tries to help, but forcing him to face his past isn't what he has in mind... nor does going on the date with the ex-wife that still holds his heart!
Nikki has never stopped loving her ex-husband, there is a part of her that still belongs to him, but admitting that outright isn't something you will see her do. She knows what they had is the forever kind of love that most people are never lucky enough to find, but what good is love when the person you have those feelings for leaves your heart in ruins, and doesn't return those feelings. She has tried to move on from what they had and find it with someone else, but no matter how hard she tries to let go of him and those feelings, they always seem to find a way to creep back in, and continue to hold her heart hostage. She knows they belong together, if only they had a second chance to fix what they broke...
The Bachelor Contract is a poignant story that inspires, makes you believe in the possibility of second chances, and reminds you that when you have love, you have it all! Settling down to read this one I thought I knew what I was in for, judging by the previous installments that I had read, but honestly I don't think I was prepared for what I found at all, this was such a moving read! I think for more than half of it my heart was in my throat, the tears were welling in my eyes, and my heart felt like it was in a vise, but every now and then there was a smile too... fair warning this one packs a serious emotional punch!! It was such a joy to watch these two re-discover what they lost, and I'll admit at times I wasn't real impressed with Brandt's behavior, but little by little he found a way to redeem himself, and by the end the man had stolen my heart! Of the three installments I have to say I favored this one the most, it had an emotional depth I wasn't expecting, and I feel like I took so much more away from it... but with that being said I really loved meeting all the bachelors from Arizona! Highly recommend this series, Ms. Van Dyken's bachelors are sure to win your heart and have you swooning throughout!!
