Jess believes she has to hide her true identity to gain the attention, and hopefully financial backing, of society’s most powerful people. When she catches the Duke’s eye, and eventually his heart, her lie becomes bigger than herself.
Although there are some ethical questions raised about lying to the one you love, I did really enjoy the second book in Eva Leigh’s The Union of the Rakes series.
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.
While I have adored Lisa Kleypas‘s historical romances, Sugar Daddy was my first of her contemporary romances. Unfortunately I didn’t develop a connection with the main romance in this book. I did like the parts that were a coming of age story and the writing was beautiful as always, but I did not care for either the hero or the heroine.
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.
Margaret Delamere is a well known playwright and Cameron, Viscount Marwood is a big fan of the theater. I loved how Cam was enchanted by Maggie and extremely supportive about her life’s passion. To see a man so enthralled with a woman for her skill and talent was very special.
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.
