Review "The Bachelor Auction by Rachel van Dyken"

Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.

Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a fa├žade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . .

I liked this book it was really enjoyable. It was a re-told Cinderella story.

What is this book about
This book is about Brock and Jane. Brock is a 35 year old multi-millionaire businessman who lives with the guilt of his parents death and a very controlling grandfather. He has to brothers, twins, who unlike him are living freely. Brock's grandfather has raised and controlled him basically since his parents death. Even though he didn't like it he never said no to his grandfather. Until he met Jane.
Jane is a real live Cinderella basically. Her mother died when she was young of breast cancer and her father did a view years later. She lives with her two sisters. She cleans up after them, cooks for them, helps them out and gets nothing in return but ugliness and manipulation. One night Jane meets Brock after he helped her out when she fell. She never though she'd see him again until she took a job as a maid to clean a house and gets it ready for a new tenant. As you may guess that new tenant is Brock.

What did I like about this book
I liked how easy this story was. I really liked Jane, she is a good girl. I also liked the twins Brant and Bentley. They were some funny characters. I didn't care much for the grandfather, he was like grandma Nadine (who is a character in some of Rachel's other books), very controlling and manipulative.  Allot of people adore her and think she's funny but I think she is a bit too much.  Wich grandfather decides it's a good idea to auction your grandson of to the highest bidder and expect him to marry her as well.
Anyway, it is a bit of a predictable story but I liked it non the less. I look forward to the second book, which is about Bentley.
