One Night With Her Bachelor by Kat Latham

Bid on a date with this wounded warrior for an unforgettable night of adventure. Aim high—and bid higher!—because no one comes close to local hero Gabriel Morales.
Molly Dekker hates being the town charity case, but when her son Josh is seriously injured she has no choice. She lets her best friend organize a bachelor auction to help pay her massive bills and make Josh’s life more comfortable. She can’t bid on any of the men, but a surprise bidder gives her a gift she never expected: a date with the man who saved her son’s life—the only one she’s in danger of losing her heart to.
Former Air Force pararescueman Gabriel Morales made a career of flying to the rescue, until a tragic helicopter crash stole more than his livelihood. Being auctioned off like a slab of beef isn’t in his recovery plan. But one look, one touch and one night unlocking Molly’s pent-up passion make him realize how badly he needs to be rescued…and how badly he wants to rescue Molly right back.

Will Molly and Gabriel’s never-quit attitude have them rushing head-first into love? Or will Gabriel’s secret pain stall their relationship before it can get off the ground?

I’ve been waiting to hear Molly’s story and I have to say I am over the moon with how it turned out.
Growing more serious but keeping his voice gentle, he asked, “What are you looking for, Molly?”
She swallowed again, but at least she didn’t look away. “Orgasms. At least three.”
When single-mother Molly Decker has an encounter with her brother’s best friend in the local shop, she decides to pay him a visit at his remote cabin. Although their tryst is interrupted by the news that Molly’s son, Josh, has been involved in an accident.
Former Air Force pararescueman Gabriel Morales survived the helicopter crash that killed Molly’s brother but he returned home wounded and stripped of his identity. Feeling useless, he’s decided to hole up in a remote cabin in the woods and go off the grid until Josh’s accident forces him to return to the job he left behind.
Agreeing to be one of the bachelors auctioned in a benefit to aid with the debt Molly accumulated due to Josh’s accident, Gabriel never imagined that a surprise bidder would gift his date to Molly. Undeniably attracted to her, Gabriel will have to overcome the obstacles in his way. And with Molly refusing to let him falter, neither can lose.
This is my favorite novel in the Bachelors Auction series. I could not put it down until I read the last page.
Both Gabriel and Molly have suffered and are still suffering because of the events that have happened in their lives. They were the perfect couple. They knew what the other had been through and what they were grieving for. They also knew what they wanted to fight for.
I was annoyed with Gabriel for not revealing some information a bit sooner, but I could see why he kept it hidden. Molly has this amazing ‘can do’ attitude, but she’s also fragile so it was nice to see her strength shine through.
The plot and flow of this book was simply brilliant. Out of all the books in this series, One Night with her Bachelor had the best backstory and character development.
It also had the best chemistry between the characters and I think that had to do with the fact both characters had suffered because of the same tragedy. This book was also steamy. I swear I heard my Kindle sizzle a few times.
The only problem I had with this book was the fact it was way too short. Given what the characters were up against, this plot could have been developed into a full-length novel. Not that it was lacking in anything, there just could have been more to their story.
Overall, I’m sad to see this series end but it went out with a bang.

This does have some appealing points and they sound good for each other.
