Bachelor is the second story I've listened to by Winter Renshaw and I'm quickly becoming a fan and looking forward to listening to more stories by Renshaw. While it's the second book in the Rixton Falls series, it really can be listened as a stand alone. I enjoyed the story, and characters, but felt the plot was fairly predictable, and Derek and Serena fought their attraction too much (mostly Derek).
Derek is a divorced single father who's focus becomes his career and daughter. Due to his cheating ex-wife, he's developed trust issues, and is unable to commit and only has one night stands. When he's called in to be the conservator over heiress Serena Randall's finances, she will have him questioning if he can ever trust someone enough to let them in.
Serena Randall's has been deemed not mentally stable, and her family files to take over Serena's finances, but instead, the court appoints Derek's law firm to step and evaluate. Derek's first impression of Serena does not jive with the tabloid's gossip, and what was filed at court. The articles say Serena's "lost it" after walking in on her fiancé with two of her best friends, and turned to drugs/alcohol, and goes on wild spending sprees. The court documents state she's tried to kill herself by running her car off a bridge, and her family is concerned about her mental health. However, after meeting Serena he's convinced, she is capable of handling her own finances and believes her when Serena tells him of her suspensions. Since Serena has been kept secluded at Belcourt Manor, she has no other place to go. Derek offers to take her to his place in Rixton Falls for a few days while she searches for a place to live and investigates her suspicions. They quickly start falling for each other, and give into their passions; however, Derek makes it in clear there could never be a relationship, well that's what they keep telling themselves at least.
Elizabeth Hart, and Nelson Hobbs performance was really good! They did a great job on the characters, dialogue, and emotions.
Overall, Bachelor was a great story, with lots of drama, angst, suspense, and some steamy sex. I would rate it between 4 and 5 stars. It's definitely worth a credit, but I used my Kindled Unlimited and added Whispersync! (Love whispersync deals!)

Omg! I LOVED Royal, but oh my goodness, I ADORED Bachelor! The angst was off the charts and I REALLY enjoyed the suspenseful element added with Serena's case.
I enjoyed the narration more in this book too. Elizabeth Hart and Nelson Hobbs did a fantastic job with their different voices.
Derek: MAN! I KNEW IT!! Ever since his appearances in Royal, I KNEW he had a juicy story. I'm happy to report that I was right! Loved the drama in this book. It wasn't lame or overplayed...it was exactly what the story needed. It kept things VERY interesting without dragging issues.
Serena was an awesome female lead!!! AWESOME. Filthy RICH yet humble and incredibly down to earth. Loved, loved, loved her!
To say I will be checking out Winter Renshaw's other books is an understatement!!! I'm HOOKED on her words! FIVE STARS!
