Story 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…

Read on for my thoughts on What A Bachelor Needs.  No true spoilers, honest.

Mardie was living a nightmare, and on the absolute worst night of her life she needed saved but didn’t expect to survive.  Out of the darkness stepped a hero.  A man who chased off her attacker, held her close while waiting for medical help to arrive and murmured the words she needed most to hear – that this wasn’t her fault, she was worth so much more than to be treated like this.  Battered and bruised she walked away from her old life that night and the hero she never expected to see again…

…until her friends presented Jett to her at the Bachelor Auction taking place in the bar/diner where she worked, already bought and paid for – hired as a week long handyman to get her run down newly purchased house in a more liveable condition for her and her baby girl.  This Olympic skier and her hero on that worst possible night – was going to fix up her house?!  Impossible.  Gifts from Heaven don’t happen to Mardie like this.  Until Jett.

I have to admit that this one is my favorite novella of the Montana Born Bachelor Auction yet (there are 2 unreleased ones at this time so there might be more favorites)… but this one won my heart and I really didn’t want it to end.

Jett and Mardie had an attraction since high school.  Oh, they never acted on it, but they were aware of each other.  Then life moved in different directions for each of them.  Jett lived his dream of ski champion and also was a silent partner in his brothers’ construction company – so he did know how to build and fix things up.  Maybe even a lovely young mom and her adorable baby girl.

It is so tempting to tell you the entire story here because I just loved it that much. But I won’t.  I do highly recommend What A Bachelor Needs.  I give it a 4 outta 5 star rating.  If you enjoy a truly loving, sexy, emotional, hot, at times tearful love story – pick this one up. This one is a Keeper for me.  I could read this again without hesitation and probably enjoy it even more.
