In high school, my crush on Flynn wasn’t so secret, but he was so far out of my league that I didn’t care. I had more important things to survive. Ten years have passed, I’ve built a new life, and it’s my lucky day. He’s one of the eligible bachelors in the fundraising auction I’m helping organize.

I saved money to donate to an organization that helped me escape a bad situation, but if I can give it to the same cause and buy a week away with Flynn, why not?

***

The girl I once knew as Crazy J, the one obsessed with me in high school, just won a week with me at my lake cabin. I’ve built my empire on reputation, it’s how I land accounts worth millions, but Tilly Johnson gives zero thought to what people think of her. From her Wacky Monday work clothes to her raucous laughter, I should be cringing every time she walks into the same room as me and opens her mouth.

Only I’m starting to crave it. I want more of what Tilly has to offer. Until her reputation clashes with one of my biggest accounts and threatens to bring my world crashing down. Helping her could cost me everything.

 

First to Bid is a full-length standalone novel in the Unraveled series. It was previously published as Highest Bidder in the now obsolete Fanboys series.

First to Bid by Marie Johnston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

You know what made me smile the most about this story; it was a second chance at unrequited love. And you couldn’t have asked for a better person to have that second chance than Tilly. Her history is not a positive one, but she came out of it strong and assured. When she wants something, she is all in and this story represented that characteristic realistically in her. She’s a relatable character or at least she was for me and I enjoyed the heck out of reading her journey to HEA.

Flynn has his own history/past, and it wasn’t rainbows and gumdrops either. That past is what shaped him to be what I say would be the Flynn at the beginning of the story, but he grew in this journey and he was not the same Flynn in the end. Tilly did that, or rather her personality did that and this is where I stop before I start giving away plot points. But maaaaaaaan, you guys, these two were so dynamic together that I was fascinated by their story! Two more opposite people you could not ask for but they worked and it was just glorious!
