Review by Anniek
Brooks is tricked by his sister to participate in an auction. Women can bid on him and the prize is sailing with him for a week. Brooks is not happy with the thought of having to be on his boat with a strange woman. To be sure he doesn’t end up with a nightmare for a date he turns to his best friend Skye.
Skye works as a mechanic at the marina which is owned by her father. She has known Brooks forever. When Brooks tells Skye that she needs to bid on him and to win the auction she is hesitant. Eventually it's his sail boat that wins her over. He promises her she can be the skipper and his boat is amazing. Skye wants nothing more than to sail on it.
After winning the auction Brooks and Skye are ready to leave with the boat. A photographer will be shooting pictures of them at various occasions to document how their trip is going. Being on a sailboat together 24 hours a day is triggering the attraction between them. When they sail into a storm and Skye falls overboard Brooks can no longer deny the feelings he has developed for her. Will they be able to overcome the old secrets which are inevitably surfacing though?
Bidding on Brooks is such a sweet story. Brooks and Skye are a perfect pair. Skye is a hard working mechanic and I love that about her. She's sweet and doesn’t deserve the rumors that people are spreading about her. I really like it when women are strong and capable of handling their own business.
This is not my first book by Katy Regnery and it certainly won’t be the last. Her stories are perfect for a romantic getaway. You will feel like you are out on the sea together with Brooks and Skye while the wind is blowing through your hair.
