    I really struggled to get through this one.It did have some redeeming features hence the two stars and not the one star , but on the whole, it wasn t enjoyable.None of the main characters were remotely sympathetic In fact, I actually thought they were all quite unpleasant people The heroines were selfish, flirtatious and manipulative The heroes were all apparently rakes, although I didn t see anything much rakish about them, other than having had mistresses, slept around a bit, and wanti I really struggled to get through this one.It did have some redeeming features hence the two stars and not the one star , but on the whole, it wasn t enjoyable.None of the main characters were remotely sympathetic In fact, I actually thought they were all quite unpleasant people The heroines were selfish, flirtatious and manipulative The heroes were all apparently rakes, although I didn t see anything much rakish about them, other than having had mistresses, slept around a bit, and wanting to sleep with the heroines All the main characters were totally one dimensional to me and rather trite For example, of the heroines, you had the Mother figure, the Flirt, the Schemer and the Innocent one The heroes all rather melted together for me, into one Tall, Broad Man with Eyebrows.The plot itself is actually quite a fun one, and it could have worked better as a series of novellas, perhaps, or with one less sister, or a bitdiversity of characters and someplot twists, but the book doesn t make the most of what it could have been.There were a couple of things, which, for me personally, were just total killers First, all the heroines were drop dead gorgeous Yes, I know that some HR readers like to read about heroines who are beautiful, so they can live vicariously through them although I actually have my doubts about how many that actually is, considering the rave reviews for Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake However, considering that most of us are actually quite ordinary looking, and I know it s quite petty of me to care, but it really annoys me when an author takes a group of sisters heroines friends and paints them all as totally beautiful with only different shades of hair color, or eye color or height, to tell them apart As soon as I realized all of them fit this particular mold, it just turned me off and I started to read faster, not because I was really getting into it, but I wanted to get through it.Another thing that really bothered me was all the constant descriptions of clothing, and even worse, from the heroes points of view Sorry, in general, most men would only notice a woman is a wearing a dress, b whether it s bright, and c whether you can see her tits and her butt through it I know this is a contemporary way of putting it, but I struggle to believe that evolution has changed things that much over the last two centuries.And finally, my biggest gripe, is that I have no idea why each of the heroes, or each of the heroines, fell in love I mean, the eldest sister, Caroline, is supposed to be the main heroine, but you get no understanding of why the hero wants her, and is willing to marry her, other than she s got a killer rack Loads of woman are generously endowed, why did he pick this one Don t know Don t really care And this was the case for all of the couples As a result, I was left feeling rather sad All the romances seemed predicated on the heroes wanting to have sex with their chosen heroine, and realizing the only way this would happen was through marriage That doesn t leave me with any confidence of a HEA for any of them, to be honest, beyond procreating the Heir and the Spare.2 stars, and I m probably being on the generous side

    This is a good book but not an amazing one One of those that you will find nice to read but you won t remember in two weeks There are some better books by Stephanie Laurens out there.As usual with Stephanie Laurens, we are dealing with very well outlined and interesting characters And we re talking about four pairs here And in a fairly short book The main pair is Caroline and Max In my opinion, the least interesting of all couples Sarah and Darcy as well as Arabella and Hugo are muchThis is a good book but not an amazing one One of those that you will find nice to read but you won t remember in two weeks There are some better books by Stephanie Laurens out there.As usual with Stephanie Laurens, we are dealing with very well outlined and interesting characters And we re talking about four pairs here And in a fairly short book The main pair is Caroline and Max In my opinion, the least interesting of all couples Sarah and Darcy as well as Arabella and Hugo are muchremarkable I would like to see Arabella and Hugo as the main one Unfortunately, they are definitely on the margins of the whole story It is a pity.I am not entirely convinced about the motives that guide Max from the very beginning As soon as he meets Caroline, he decides to seduce her And without fail implements his plan For what purpose To make her his lover It doesn t really suit the romance hero This is a bit strange and vague.Anyway, the story is okay, could be better

    I loved the premise and the light hearted fun tone to the story I even liked the heroine and her sisters despite their perfection and beauty It was amusing to consider the horror that went through Max when he realized he was guardian to all four Also, the writing was good and professional and the plot moved along briskly.But the story did not deliver on its promise I just could not get past the fact that Max and Darcy were intent on sleeping with virginal debutantes and had no shame in doing I loved the premise and the light hearted fun tone to the story I even liked the heroine and her sisters despite their perfection and beauty It was amusing to consider the horror that went through Max when he realized he was guardian to all four Also, the writing was good and professional and the plot moved along briskly.But the story did not deliver on its promise I just could not get past the fact that Max and Darcy were intent on sleeping with virginal debutantes and had no shame in doing so Yes, they did get swayed to marriage in the end but not for wont of trying first It just seemed ludicrous to me that men of standing in the ton actually would think of setting up debutantes from good family as their mistresses with no thought to scandal And Max was a terrible guardian Despite some statements about needing to protect the three younger sisters forget Caro , Max seemedthan happy to allow his friends to debauch the the girls and actually seemed to havesympathy with the men instead Capping it off, I really didn t like the ending and how Max basically set up Caro s abduction and seduction so that HAD she wanted to not sleep with him or even turn down his proposal, she would have been thoroughly compromised anyway Not cool Basically, I guess I m saying that Max was not a great hero.Beyond that, I just felt like no one actually fell in love in this story It was all lust and wanting In fact, no one s HEA included a declaration of being in love, or even the thought of it Yet despite all that lust, there were no satisfying sex scenes, just vague allusions and after the fact summaries Disappointing At least give me the hot sex if there is going to be no love

    Four charming rakes and four strong willed rake magnets conduct a perilous battle of the wills throughout a series of London ballrooms, on terraces, in ante rooms and opera boxes, within gazebos, as well as the shrubberies A light, humorous, and escapade filled regency The narrator, Ashford MacNab captured the humor and sexiness of Laurens novel, and did a great job with the male and female voices.

    I m just thankful it s over This book took an inordinately long time to read when so very little happened None of the characters were relatable nor were they interesting in any way The end, however, was amusing Too bad it took so long to get there.

    Although the storyline of a rake finding himself saddled with four wards to fire off during the season should have been entertaining, much of the fun was lost by the portrayal of eight characters with twentieth century morals dumped into a nineteenth century setting It was almost gruesome to suffer through the four young ladies having to deal with the importunities of the type of males that those of us dating after 1960 know only too well One of the delights of Regency romances is not having t Although the storyline of a rake finding himself saddled with four wards to fire off during the season should have been entertaining, much of the fun was lost by the portrayal of eight characters with twentieth century morals dumped into a nineteenth century setting It was almost gruesome to suffer through the four young ladies having to deal with the importunities of the type of males that those of us dating after 1960 know only too well One of the delights of Regency romances is not having to put up with men who are all over a lady with the least provocation, so I found this book jarring to say the least I had hoped Ms Laurens earlier books would be better than the ones I have read recently where over a third of the books are sex scenes, but in this I was disappointed Even without the overabundance of sex scenes, it still was not that great a read

  10. Carrie Carrie says:

    Book read a little too much like a Cartland novel for me, too many rakes and longing and lusting I didn t feel any chemistry, just cock tease heroines and cocksure heroes To me at least it felt like the heroes were mostly proposing marriage as a last ditch attempt to get under their dresses And I feel highly doubtful all of them would be faithful husbands Maybe Max and his brother.
