Bachelor Number Four

Arden’s husband died eighteen months ago and she hasn’t been able to muster up enough courage to date again. With two kids, her own business, and virtually no prospects in the dating department, she’s simply convinced herself she doesn’t have the time. Her friends come to the rescue though, setting up potential men to provide her with a fun night out and possibly a fun night in as well. With the kids at her parents or with friends, she figures why not, and gives in, but dating now isn’t how she once remembered it.

With discouraging disappointment in her perspective dates, Arden finds herself reminiscing about the short affair she and Shane, a handsome construction worker, had many years ago, and wonders if the chemistry is still there. She knows it’s time to move on, to get on with her life and be happy once again. So, in an effort to prove she’s truly ready, she sends Shane an email via his company’s website but doesn’t expect him to reply. He does.

Twelve years ago, Shane was once the man Arden drooled over, but his bad boy ways stated loud and clear he didn’t want the same things in life she did. But now he says he’s changed. Is Shane what Arden’s been looking for all this time? Or will he be just another disastrous date, expecting more from her than she’s willing to give?

BACHELOR NUMBER FOUR is a wonderfully told story. The characters come to life, the main ones being just as important as the secondary ones. I enjoyed seeing Arden grow as a character throughout the story as she finally lets her inhibitions go. Shane, however hunky, was also sweet. A story not to be missed, I give BACHELOR NUMBER FOUR my recommendation.
