Publisher's Summary

Courtney Robertson joined season 16 of The Bachelor looking for love. A working model and newly single, Courtney fit the casting call: She was young, beautiful, and a natural in front of the cameras. As the season unfolded and sparks began to fly, it became clear: She was not there to make friends. Courtney quickly became one of the biggest villains in Bachelor franchise history. She unapologetically pursued her man, steamrolled her competition, and broke the rules. Now, after a very public breakup with her Bachelor, Ben Flajnik, Courtney dishes on life before, during, and after The Bachelor, including Ben's romantic proposal to her on a Swiss mountaintop and the tabloid frenzy that continued after the cameras stopped rolling. Complete with stories, tips, tricks, and advice from your favorite Bachelor alumni, and filled with all the juicy details Courtney fans and foes alike want to know, I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends is a must-listen for every member of Bachelor nation.

Bachelor tell-all from shallow mean girl

As a Bachelor fan, this hit the spot as a guilty pleasure. Courtney really doesn't hold back, and is still as mean and shallow as she was on the show.

Would have been a nice touch to have the others who contributed to the book read those chapters.

Great for Bachelor fans

What made the experience of listening to I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends the most enjoyable?

Great book for Bachelor fans!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I couldn't stop listening. Started when I went on a run and ended up running 6 miles so I could keep listening.

Any additional comments?

The narrator has a very pleasant voice

My own voice had more enthusiasm than hers

Would you try another book from Courtney Robertson and Deborah Baer and/or Courtney Robertson?

No. The only relevant aspect of her life is her story about being the chosen one on Bens season.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I read this book on my own first and loved it. I was surprised about Courtney's lack of diversity in her pitch. It's like she's reading someone else's story. There just wasn't any expression in her voice - it was monotone

I love it

I am a big fan of the Bachelor Nation. I did not like Courtney in Ben's season but felt her pain at the Women Tell All show when the girls gang up on her.

I couldn't stop listening to her book. Very intriguing!!

Pretty good but ONLY for Bachelor fans

STORY (reality show confession) - So I must admit I'm a fan of the Bachelor and Bachelorette series. I will also say right up front that I didn't care for the choice of Ben as the Bachelor and I was one of millions who disliked Courtney, the author of this book, who is the girl Ben proposed to at the end of the season.

Anyway, I listened to this book hoping to hear the inside track on what goes on while filming the series. I learned some interesting tidbits and also heard some juicy gossip about past contestants, but I had to endure a lot about Courtney's early years, her introduction to sex, her modeling career and her name-dropping of famous guys she dated. She also gives details of her venomous relationships with the other contestants during filming, as well as a blow-by-blow account from the moment she met Ben, through their engagement and ultimately the failure of their relationship about a year later. It's her book, right, so this was her chance to vent about Ben and try to explain why she appeared like such a stuck-up b1tch on the show. All in all, I enjoyed the book, but would have preferred less Ben and way, way less Courtney.

PERFORMANCE - Courtney reads the book herself. I suppose it was good to hear her tell her own story and she does an okay job.

OVERALL - Recommended only for serious Bachelor fans and/or people who like Ben and Courtney. Some cursing and descriptions of sexual acts.

She's quite a woman great story teller

Is there anything you would change about this book?

She doesn't sound believable. Even though I saw the season I can hardly remember her, but she needs to clean up her life!

What was one of the most memorable moments of I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends?

Nothing major

What does Courtney Robertson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she's a great narrator

Was I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends worth the listening time?

I listened to it every night until I fell asleep and then rewound the next night to the last paragraph I remembered.

Any additional comments?

Not really!

So many juicy details

I'll probably review the cast of Courtney's season and re-listen- it's so jam packed with interesting bits you can't get it all the first time you listen.

Better than I could have imagined!

Would you listen to I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends again? Why?

I don't typically re-read books but I would consider listening to this one again to make sure I caught every little detail!

What did you like best about this story?

That she was honest, open, and left nothing to the imagination. She's the real deal!

Which character – as performed by Courtney Robertson – was your favorite?

Her!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wasn't planning on it but I couldn't stop once I started and the next day I finished and I wish I hadn't because I wish I was still listening to it.

Any additional comments?

People shouldn't judge. Courtney was being real and you can easily tell that after reading this book.
