Shadyside Meeting - "The Bachelor " by Carly Phillips

  • January 18, 2011 · 6:30 PM

Oh wow, January 2011! Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin, into the future... We chose the first in a series of books by Carly Phillips, The Chandler Brothers books, The Bachelor. From After news of his mother's weak heart summons him home, globetrotting journalist Roman Chandler loses a coin toss with his brothers that determines who will relinquish his bachelor status to give their mother a grandchild. Roman decides to "settle down" without giving up his travel-intensive job, and as one of the most handsome men in town, he can have his pick of the local women except for Charlotte Bronson, his high school crush. Thoughts of her parents' miserable long-distance marriage keep Charlotte from accepting Roman's proposal, despite the sexual sparks that fly at their every encounter. Mutual attraction eventually proves too powerful to resist, however, but first Roman must win her trust. Though Phillips gives sensual friction and emotional introspection equal attention, the emotional chemistry between Roman and Charlotte merely simmers while the sexual chemistry explodes. The first in a Chandler brothers trilogy, this entry will encourage readers who enjoy dining on passion to pick up the next book... Hope to see you all there! - Sue and Kelley

    Everyone was really nice! Sometimes it gets crowded in there so its tough to have conversations with people not near you and discuss the book. But I do like Pangea though!
