Oh Rafe! I wish there was more of you because I could read about you forever! I loved this book and although I do wish there was more of the Wallflowers series, I didn’t think this book was too short. I thought its length was perfect. And of course, LK is capable of making us fall in love each time you open one of her books. This book is no exception.
You may have guessed my
obsession adoration with Rafe Bowman. I always love the rakes because their love is transformative. I felt so bad when Lillian revealed the story behind Rafe’s little solider toys. There is always something honourable about LK’s characters, even though they don’t see it themselves. I loved all the characters in this book. Even Natalie.
LK kind of threw me for a loop in the beginning because I was expecting Lady Natalie and Rafe to end up together. So reading Hannah’s POV really opened my eyes and I realized, of course it’s not as simple as that.
I LOVED that we get to see the other Walllflowers. Each gets their own little updates and snippets of their time after their books. I loved reading each of their individual stories and then having them all together was great as well.
And of course, Kleypas’s writing always shines. Despite the shortness of this book, Kleypas still writes with the same passion and eloquence as her full-length novels, giving Rafe and Hannah a love story that’s perfect for raising spirits and filling hearts. Loved it!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
