About this ebook

Bought in an auction by a shy baker? No problem.

Pretending to be her boyfriend for her sister's wedding? On it.

I can pretend all day long because I'm Thatcher Manning, the guy who doesn't do relationships.

I'll give a woman a wild romp. Hell, I'll give her anything. Anything but my heart.

I decided a long time ago I'd never get serious with a woman.

The fact that I'm leaving town in a few months only cements that decision.

But then Astrid has to get under my skin. She hands over the reins in bed—and out—and now I'm catching feelings.

The kind you can't fake.

Trouble is—I wasn't playing for keeps. Now, that's a problem. A big one.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Received from Greys Promotions Hand Me the Reins is book 3 in the Bachelor Auction series by Vanessa Vale and here we go again…the final Manning up for auction. Thatcher Manning, just like his brothers (prior books) is up for auction, doesn’t do relationships and in a few months will be leaving. When he’s purchased by the town’s elderly librarian, Miss Turnbuckle, he thinks he’s home free…except she purchased him for her niece, Astrid. What starts out as a fake boyfriend for her sister’s wedding turns into so much more but will Thatcher stick to his rules of just wild fun, enjoy Astrid for now or will he finally see that the right woman makes all the difference and brings joy and love abound!

Wow!!! what an amazing story, to take a chance on love. I also want me a cowboy. Enjoyed this book the most from the Bachelors auction. Thatcher was more gentleman then his brothers. I'm still getting use to all the fudge bombs and filthy talk even though I cringe and think boy if a man said that to me I would knock his cherry dudes off BUT I keep on reading ....

Again, couldn’t put it down! Love this little series! So entertaining! A bit of a twist for the usual types of storylines, this one has a female and a male character that aren’t looking for love. Truly enjoyed the read!! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
