I read and loved this book in 2018 but in honor of the third and final book in the fantastic Bareknuckle Bastards series releasing today (Daring and the Duke), I have decided to publish my 5 star review of the first book in the series.
I am so glad I read this book; I loved Lina and her friends and family that helped shape the woman she was. Max was sweet and attentive to Lina and had a desire to learn more about her. Their love was worth working for and it was fun reading about them navigate the obstacles to get there.
This really sweet second chance romance is told in alternating points of view between the past at Camp Wawa, where two teenagers find love and adventure; and the present in Lennox, where a high power VP crosses paths again with the boy from her past, this time when he is a security guard at her office building.
I concluded the second book in the beautiful duet – I felt the genuine love between the pair – a love that spanned continents and years. Lennix is a strong and inspiring heroine with Native American heritage she is proud of. Maxim is ruthless and brave and adores Lennix. But I am not sure how much love I have for a billionaire turned politician, no matter how charming he is.
Oh how I absolutely loved this wonderful romance about Poppy, a shopgirl, whose crush, the Duke falls into a coma. She is mistaken for his fiancee and welcomed in by the Duke’s family, with the exception of the Duke’s sexy Scottish half-brother who has suspicions about Poppy. Lovely and just the right about tension, I truly adored this book.
We read Kerrigan Byrne’s How to Love a Duke in Ten Days for our book club pick this month and while I usually love this author, there was a lot I struggled with this book.
I saved the fourth and final book in Lisa Kleypas’s fantastic Wallflowers series for a time when I thought I would really need it. I am so glad I was able to escape into this book during quarantine.
Mr. Wright was oh so good in this novella by the always incredible Tessa Dare.
This book was intense and beautiful and the ending totally destroyed me – because I need to know what happens next!
A sexy novel about a beautiful rebellious blonde from uptown and the dark and reclusive casino owner whose mentorship she seeks.
