What a Bachelor Needs by Kelly Hunter

Book Blurb:

Your date with ski champ Jett Casey is an either/or deal. He’ll take you off-piste for the ultimate Montana ski adventure or he’ll put his handyman skills at your disposal for a week.

Single mom Mardie Griffin has a run-down old house in need of fixing and a memory of Jett Casey as her saviour in a time of great need. So when her friends acquire Jett’s services at a bachelor auction and send him to fix up her house, she sets aside her mistrust of men and lets him in.

Elite athlete Jett Casey has the world at his feet and no desire for stability. But there’s one woman he’s never forgotten and if he can help make her safe this time, maybe she’ll stop haunting him.

No strings, no sex, no commitment. Just fix things. Surely it can’t be that difficult…

My review:

I really, really like Jett!  He is fun, easy going and gets things done!  He's thought a lot of Mardie over the years, and it was really unique how they finally meet again.  I really like how Jett is with Mardie.  He wants to help her and keep her safe, but he doesn't overstep her boundaries (too much!).  Jett is very attracted to Mardie, secretly he always has been.  Is Mardie ready for more though?

The last time they met was a night Mardie would rather forget.  She's moved on since then, and she is fiercely independent, determined and strong.  She is so independent she doesn't want to accept any help at all...even when she needs it desperately but won't admit it.  But with a young daughter to think of now, Mardie just might have to lean on someone else for a little while.  As she's accepting some help, she finds her walls slowly crumbling just a little.  If she has a little fun with Jett, what will it hurt?

Jett might do more than fix up Mardie's house...if she lets him he can help her heart start to heal.

What A Bachelor Needs is a fast paced novella with good a good romantic build up.  The characters are interesting (love Mardie's little daughter, and Jett's brother must have a story lurking in there somewhere!!) and kept me involved in their story.

What A Bachelor Needs is part of the Montana Born Bachelor Auction series, but can definitely be read as a stand alone (although the whole series is great!).  I'd recommend this to romance readers looking for a quick, feel good romance. 

4/5 stars
