When a single independent woman falls for a single dad, she has to decide if she’s willing to accept the whole package.

Jennifer Palmer is not especially excited about attending the charity event, but because it helps homeless animals and because her best friend and roommate asked her to, she agrees to attend. Besides, it might be sort of fun bidding on an eligible billionaire and just what Jenny needs to move forward after the break up with her loser boyfriend, Brad.

Single dad, Chase Marlow is well-known in the community for his work with disadvantaged women and children. He also loves animals, so when he’s asked to be one of the auctioned billionaires, he steps up to the challenge.

Jenny isn’t planning on bidding, but when Chase enters the stage, all bets are off. After all, it’s just one date.

Can Jenny and Chase get that one date off the ground, or will there be too many obstacles in their way?

Billionaire Auction by Debbie White is a sweet romantic story about a nurse who met the man of her dreams when she bid on him at a charity auction.
Jennifer Palmer is a registered nurse who helps at the kennel on her days off.  Therefore, when her best friend and roommate approached her about taking part in an auction to raise funds for the Animal Defense League, there was no hesitation on her part. The one thing she was not looking for from this venture was any romantic entanglements. Fate however had different plans.
Chase Morrow is a single dad and the billionaire on whom Jenny placed her bid. He is not your typical billionaire in that he was not arrogant. His laid-back personality and the fact he wore his heart on his sleeve endeared him to me.
I found this to be an interesting story. However, an indecisive and insecure heroine took away from my enjoyment.  I understand that hurt from a previous relationship would make one cautious regarding romantic entanglements, but Jenny actions were extreme.  Thankfully, the hero helped to balance out her attitude with his patience. It also helped that her best friend could provide the guidance needed to put her on the right path. Thank goodness for friends with a positive attitude. Due to her actions, I had difficulty accepting that her declarations of love for Chase were genuine.
If you love steamy romances, then this book may not be for you. This was squeaky clean, which was not a problem for me.
Overall, this was not a bad read. It may not have delivered all I hoped for, but I still I had a good time. If you enjoy clean romances centered on family and friendships, you may enjoy Billionaire Auction.

  1. People bidding on other people at charity auctions always cracks me up. I can’t imagine what I would do with him once I bought him. I mean I could think of a few things but don’t know if he would be ok with it. lol

  2. yay for a billiioniaire romance…love em!! I really struggle with indecisive heroines sometimes. I mean it depends on how they are written but most of the time they drive me bat crazy hehe

    That cover and bow tie jump right out at me, and the title of the book is so catchy. Sorry this one didn’t work as well as you would have liked. Hugs and happy Tuesday! RO

    Yeah I can’t stand those kinds of wishy washy whiny heroines, yes you’ve been hurt news flash everyone else has too!

  5. I don’t mind a clean romance, but the wishy washy heroine would get to me. I could tell by the excerpt she’d be too indecisive for me, but I do love a bachelor auction story!

    Great review. Thanks for sharing.
