Dandelions On The Road is a charming romantic comedy based around a Bachelor-style TV show, except that in this case it's the Bachelorette. Twelve men competing for the attention of one woman, except that they have a thirteenth rival none of them were aware of, because the show's host made the mistake of falling for Eva, the bachelorette, before the show even started filming. What ensues is a tragi-comic romp in which Brian, our male protagonist, has to deal with his own feelings of jealousy and try to act unselfishly in Eva's best interests.
The story is well-written and comes to a nicely satisfying conclusion at the ending, though I did feel very sorry for the last couple of 'bachelors' who were rejected. Especially considering the Latina heroine, I'd have liked to see a little more racial diversity in the bachelors themselves and there were a few word choice issues in the book which could be cleared up by a professional proofreader. Brooke Williams does an amazing job with her characters; despite a necessarily large cast (with the twelve bachelors) she shows a great talent for setting up each character with just a few words. I was worried I'd be getting the bachelors mixed up, but she gave every one of them such a distinct personality there was no danger of that at all. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and I'll be looking out for more of Brooke Williams' works. She's an excellent romantic comedy writer. Dandelions On The Road is a lot of fun.
