We already know what our must-have beach read will be this summer: Bachelor vixen Courtney Robertson’s sure-to-be juicy new book about her life and her experience on the hit ABC reality show. Sadly for us, we’re going to have to wait about six more months to get our hands on it. But in the meantime, Courtney was nice enough to fill us in on the latest with her tome — and it only left us wanting more!

“We just shot the cover a few weeks ago,” Courtney exclusively tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “We did a bunch of different looks and just had a lot of fun with it.”

But she turns serious when talking about how much the project has meant to her...and how hard she’s worked on it. “It’s my baby,” Courtney asserts. “It took months to write it and I poured my heart and soul into it every day.”

And taking a hard look back at her experiences — including a painful, failed engagement to Bachelor star Ben Flajnik — wasn’t always a picnic. “It was a long process,” she admits. “It’s not easy reliving your past.”

Now that the first draft is with her publishers for editing, Courtney says she’s grateful for the opportunity and super excited to share it with the world.

“I’m so happy with it,” she says. “It’s going to be a light, fun read and I know fans of the show will love it. Women, especially, will really be able to relate.”
