Stealing the Bachelor by Sonya Weiss





Book Description

 She needs his help, but he has a price...

Having missed out on the "drop-dead-gorgeous" gene in her family, Ann Snyder decides to kick a little butt in the business world instead. That is, until her skeezy manager's "side business" has the FDA raiding her chocolate shop. Now Ann's in huge trouble...and the only person who can help her is the adorkable guy who completely humiliated her in high school.
Lawyer Eric Maxwell has been in love with Ann as long as he can remember. He figured he never stood a chance-don't the beautiful girls always prefer the bad boys to the nerds? So he makes Ann a deal. He'll provide her with free legal services...if she'll move in and help transform him from nerd-without-a-clue to bona fide bad boy.
And once the transition is complete, all he has to do is prove that he's the only bachelor for her...

Ann Snyder is in some serious trouble.  After trusting the wrong man (again), she may be facing some serious jail time.  The manager of her chocolate shop had a nice little side business THROUGH her legit business that Ann had no knowledge of.  With her assets frozen by the IRS, Ann has to turn to Eric Maxwell, whom she has known since high school but never seemed to get along with.  

Eric has been in love with Ann forever, but she never really gave him the time of day.  Seizing his chance to show Ann he can be the man for her, Eric will take  Ann's case pro bono if she will show him how to be less of a "nerd" and more "bad boy".

I never really saw Eric as a "nerd".  Maybe a bad dresser, but not a nerd.  I don't know.  The description of these character's just didn't feel right to me.

I just couldn't get into this book.  Ann and Eric's relationship was worse than high school drama-filled "relationship".  Does he like me?? Does she think I'm a nerd? Ugh... I found the "transformation" for nerdy guy to bad boy almost laughable.  It was definitely deserving of a major eye-roll.
