Bachelors Three Series
by Kathye Quick
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Jack Reeves has loved Kinley Adams since the day he rescued her computer from a fatal blue
screen. In the two years since, the computer programmer has fantasized about a life with her.
Kinley, an Engineering Assistant, has come to think of Jack as more than just a friend. One
night, just when each had finally decided to reveal their feelings are deeper than friendship, a
terrible automobile accident puts their confessions on hold.

Doctors have no choice but to rebuild Jack's face, and the result changes everything. Can Jack
and Kinley overcome his transformation from geek to chic, a secret double life, and a horde of willing women who have discovered the new Jack Reeves? Will the frog ever become the prince and ride off with his princess to live happily ever after?

3.0 out of 5 stars Over the top but not awfulAugust 13, 2015
This review is from: (Bachelors Three Series) (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
This was a hard one for me. I enjoyed the story, but there were a few things that bothered me. So with the cons, then the pros
1. The title, really has no bearing on the story. You have a geeky friend who's in love with Kinley (this hot girl). He's in an accident, has plastic surgery and becomes hot. He owns a video game company. Where does the dotcom come in? I guess I just don't get the title.
2. There were some editing errors. Typical wrong word things, "At lot like you." instead of a lot like you.
3. The fact that every woman Jack came in contact with threw themself at him, was ridiculous. Yes I understand you're making a point that you're trying to show the difference between how he looked and how he looks now, but it was such an over exaggeration, that I just rolled my eyes.
4. It was hard to feel the romantic connection when they keep pushing each other away.

Ok, so here's some good..
1. I love best friend love stories. I'm sure we all had that friend we thought we were in love with. We felt those emotions of what if? What if they don't love us, what if it ruins our friendship.
2. Kinley trying to show Jack how to flirt or push away girls was silly. I giggled when she told everyone they were married. It worked.
3. If the writing had been a little more "realistic" or, not even realistic, but more believable and not over the top, then it would have rated higher. I would have enjoyed it much more.
4. The cover is cute, it's a nice change from the usual sexy man cover. I feel it gives a great idea of the story.

In all, it was an ok book. I enjoyed parts of it, but the other parts are what drug it down too much to rate it any higher. I think a little content editing would bring this right up in rating.
Why no voting buttons? We don't let customers vote on their own reviews, so the voting buttons appear only when you look at reviews submitted by others.

Kathye Quick has been writing since she used #2 pencils and Catholic School lined paper. She originally wanted to be President of the United States or an Organic Chemist,
but somehow life got in the way and she got married right out of high school and had a set of twins two years later.  The Presidency seemed out of reach and night school to get
her Ph.D. to create new molecule that would ultimately result in the betterment of humankind seemed a little time consuming while trying to raise twins, so she decided to
write instead.
First published in 1999, she has 20 books in print in several genres, and is working on an Urban Fantasy Series as P. K. Eden with partner, Patt Mihailoff. Their urban fantasy,
FIREBRAND, won two Reviewer’s Choice Awards and has earned 5-Star reviews.

In her non-writing life, she works in county government, and is married to her real-life hero, Donald.  Kathye and Don have 3 grown boys, all happily married and having adventures of their own.
