Eric Hamilton isn’t looking for love. Hell, he isn’t even looking for a girl. He has a five-year plan, and he’s one hundred percent focused on that. But then Shelby walks into his life, and suddenly, he can’t think about anything else. Unfortunately for him, she hates his guts, and wants nothing to do with him. But he’s a man who loves a challenge.

Shelby Jefferson can’t wait to get out of the city, and back to her country roots. She moved to Atlanta for a guy who promptly left her, and the last thing she wants is to fall for another man who might make her want to stay. But Eric is nothing if not persistent, and before long she’s inside his arms, in his bed, and falling for him. Hard. But when history repeats itself, she’s left having to choose between a man and herself…again.

Romancing the Bachelor by Diane Alberts was a very entertaining read.

The storyline held my interest, both Eric and Shelby were likable, believable characters that I easily connected with and watching them fall in love filled my heart with happy feels.
These two were going to have a wonderful l ...more

ROMANCING THE BACHELOR, the second book in Diane Alberts' new Hamilton Family series starts off great. Shelby's sass and dismissal wasn't what Eric was used to from women. He was hooked and so was I.

Once Eric convinces Shelby to give him a chance to be her "friend" (since neither wants a relationsh ...more

By Emily May 21, 2017

Eric Hamilton has no plan to settle down but when he meets Shelby Jefferson he is smitten. Shelby knows who Eric is, in fact they have been in the same apartment building and she has been court reporter for a few of his cases but he never noticed her until now. Shelby knows Eric is not going to leav ...more

I Voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

I definitely enjoyed this one, and I am going back and reading the first book

What I liked most about this book was that it captured your interest from the first page. And it actually copied what happens in a actual relationship.
People meet, they date, they f ...more

By Ofelia May 15, 2017

I was given this ARC by NetGalley for an honest review. I really enjoyed reading this book, it had a little bit of everything comedy, romance and steamy scenes. Shelby and Eric's relationship might have started as friends then changed to friends with benefits but it soon became a lot more. It was fu ...more

By Valeen May 24, 2017

Romancing the Bachelor is another great entry in the Hamilton Family series. This time it's Eric's (one of Anna's big brothers, from The CEO's Seduction) turn to fall in love. Shelby is the lady in question. She's a court reporter and has been Eric's neighbor for 6 months, but not once during that t ...more

I positively just blew through this book. I sat down to read it in the morning and then all of the sudden I was at the end of the book and I have no clue where those hours went. I was completely immersed.

I think what may have drawn me so deep into the book were the characters. Every single thing ab ...more

By Char (1RadReader59) May 16, 2017

Very cute book. I really enjoyed the transformation of the relationship between Shelby Jefferson and Eric Hamilton.
It was cute how they lived in the same apartment building and worked at the same courthouse from time to time. Not to mention Shelby had many a lustful dream about Eric. Yet, he never ...more

By Jessica July 13, 2018

So I was right ... the Hamilton men are a very entertaining read :)

The best part of this romance story is the actual romance progression. They meet ~ they become friendly ~ they date ~ they fall in love .. That's how it happens in life, mostly lol so I really like it when my stories mirror that and ...more

By Bette May 09, 2017

So very good! I really enjoyed reading this one. It's fun, sexy, and completely entertaining. Eric Hamilton is a hardworking dedicated attorney working on his five year plan. No where in that plan is there time for a woman. Yet when he meets Shelby, a beautiful court reporter, he knows he needs to m ...more

Eric knows how to back off when he needs too, “you’re about to tell me to back off. I can see it. Did I come on too strong?” He crossed his arms. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. Like I said, I don’t play games.” I liked this book, I loved the persistence amd patience Eric had. ...more

By Bec May 16, 2017

Shelby Jefferson has already been hurt by a man and she's not about to fall for a guy similar to the one that broke her heart, so she's determined to resist Eric Hamilton. However, her plan backfires, especially since Eric is a persistent guy that she finds difficult not to like once she gets to kno ...more

4.5 out of 5

There are several reasons why I got this book. Once again the shallow reason is the first one. The cover model reminds me of Oliver Hudson, who I think is very cute. Google it, you will see what I mean. Secondly, the price was right, and, thirdly, the story sounded cute.

And this is a rea ...more

After being at court had a meeting with George, Wallace, and Mark and then he had a consultation with a possible client. Eric didn’t really believe in love and wouldn’t be getting married anytime soon. Eric loved his brothers Cole. Chris and Wyatt even Brett his soon to be brother in law. And his si ...more

By Gwyn May 28, 2017

A fun, flirty read with just enough heat and sass!

Eric is busy. Plain and simple. He’s vying for a junior partner position at the law firm and he barely has time for his family, let alone a relationship. When he sees court reporter Shelby for the first time – or I should say notices her for the firs ...more

By Sherry May 17, 2017

Getting into the first few chapters I couldn't help but think
Pretty Woman/Sleepless In Settle. And that was good.
Eric's character reminded my so much of Richard Gere's character in Pretty Woman. The womanizing executive that has a hidden soft spot.
Once he notices and immediately desires Shelby he ...more

Posted on What I'm Reading

Talk about a fabulous read. We have Eric Hamilton who notices this girl at work and he was like I have to have her, and she shoots him down. Who doesn't love an opening like that. Shelby shoots him down hard.
"You're clearly quite accustomed to women swooning in your presen ...more

Eric Hamilton has a five year plan for his life with his career front and center, which leaves him no time, no desire for relationships, so he's not even looking. He's perfectly content to have random hookups on the weekend, until the day he noticed Shelby. Now his world is turned upside down, and h ...more

By Becca May 26, 2017

Eric and Shelby both had a plan. And in that plan there was nothing about falling in love. But then one day, Eric looked up from his work fog and saw Shelby really for the very first time. Shelby had her own opinion of Eric Hamilton. She'd known him for years, since he was a lawyer and she was a cou ...more

By Becky May 23, 2017

A fun read!

I really enjoyed both Eric and Shelby's early relationship (she won't give him the time of day, he's determined to win her over like a gentleman instead of his usual manwh*rish persona) and their "friendship"--because man, can he pull out all the stops when he wants to, and even though Sh ...more

Eric Hamilton isn’t looking for love. Hell, he isn’t even looking for a girl. He has a five-year plan, and he’s one hundred percent focused on that. But then Shelby walks into his life, and suddenly, he can’t think about anything else. Unfortunately for him, she hates his guts, and wants nothing to ...more

The man that could have any woman he wants, any time he wants, and in any way he wants has found the one woman that would sass him, ignore him, and just plain right out refuse him. Eric Hamilton was young, successful, determined, and on a mission to complete his five-year plan. Never was sexy, sassy ...more

By Stephannie May 15, 2017

Eric Hamilton has goals and women are not on his agenda. But in walks Shelby Jefferson and all of a sudden he can't focus on these very important plans and goals. All he can think about is her.

Shelby Jefferson followed her heart once and it led her to heartbreak and left her in the big city. She isn ...more

3.5 stars

Romancing the Bachelor is an improvement from the first book in the series. It wasn't without its faults, but it was better. That drama in the end, lasted longer than I would have wanted it to and I was wondering what the eff was happening. I kinda get Eric's side even if I don't like it an ...more

By JG May 15, 2017

This was a fun and lighthearted romantic comedy that would definitely drive you crazy since the main leads are just too funny and sometimes frustrating with the way their relationship develops. We meet Eric and Shelby as if the former was suddenly and instantly attracted to the latter. Turns out tha ...more
