    The Wicked Wallflower is a wicked good time read I adore wallflower stories because I love watching these women blossom They re always clever and exciting than society gives them credit for, and being there as they open up and let people see who they really are often with the help of a devilishly handsome and rakish man keeps me smiling and sighing throughout the story and, ultimately, falling in love This story is all that, as well as unique The addition of The Fortune Games is ingenious Likel [...]

    Man This book is just Stupid The premise is sort of embarrassingly ridiculous, any attempt at humor falls completely flat, the pacing is awful, and the characters are just badly plotted The hero and heroine never really get to know each other, making their pretense at some deeper connection wholly laughable, and the peripheral characters are shallow and uninteresting They re all rather watered down HR cliches, and even as cliches, they don t work It s been stated in other reviews, but I ll reite [...]

    Needs to be slashed with an editing pen many redundant scenes and dialogue Pretty much the run of the mill regency duke story, with a few cute pretty acts and colloquy Read like the author s first book it s not, but the first I ve read by Ms Rodale , there s something there but very infantile Oh, and you probably want to stuff any historical knowledge into a dark corner of your brain while you read this I mean, I could be wrong but the terms Lover Boy and God Awful and an unmarried miss, albeit [...]

    This book started out so good However when I got to the part where Emma, our heroine goes to a house party unchaperoned, I really should have stopped reading.However, I liked the Duke Emma, so I preserved.When Emma and her friends refer to her finance s presence as the Ashbrooke Effect I really should ve stopped reading Did I No.When I got to the point when Emma arrives at the house party unchaperoned and no one comments on it, I really should have stopped reading Did I Nope.The party itself the [...]

    4.5Review posted on Got Fiction Books gotfiction review wicked wI really liked this book You do have to suspend belief for the Fortune Games, and the dialogue was very modern, but I still had a great time reading it.Lady Emma and her friends are drinking one night, lamenting the fact that they are still unwed and beginning their fourth Season Emma meanwhile, has a boy Benedict who s been courting her these past three Seasons He and she have discussed their future life in detail, and yet he hasn [...]

    I ve given this a B at AAR, so let s call it 3.5 stars.This first book in a new series by Maya Rodale is fun, fluffy, and unashamedly pokes fun at a number of trends in current popular culture Now, I love well done romantic fluff It s hard to write convincingly, and Ms Rodale certainly displays a talent for writing sparkling dialogue that flows effortlessly The story is well written, there s plenty of wit, the chemistry between the hero and heroine is wonderful, the love scenes are steamy and th [...]

    I won t lie, I almost labeled this one as a DNF I wasn t the biggest fan of the beginning Both characters were kind of annoying and I wasn t really digging the way the scenes kept switching back and forth But I kept reading because I usually love Maya Rodale s work and I am so glad that I did Once I got to the halfway point I just couldn t put this book down I loved the banter and humor between Blake and Emma and I found myself really falling for Blake Once he became aware of his feelings for Em [...]

    This is my first book by Maya Rodale and I had several problems with her writing style and story construction I didn t like the constant back and forth between scenes that are taking place at the same time in two different locations just write one, then write the other There were also several inconsistencies or things that didn t add up her parents are in the carriage with them, but then they re back home to greet her when she gets back why would Benedict act so quickly and I don t believe Lady [...]

    Please note that if there was ever a book to be named a mistorical , this would be it Any resemblance to 19th century England is purely coincidental I m generally not a stickler for accuracy, important is story This story, however, did not even come close to compensating for the many, many baffling inconsistencies in the world building a newly betrothed couple traveling together for three days without a chaperone, nor anyone commenting on it, was the least of it Rote characters, incoherent plot [...]

    O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive Walter ScottThis book is delightful The humor is very dry and sarcastic, which I love The relationship between the Duke and Aunt Agatha is heartwarming And the relationship between the Duke and Emily , aka Emma, is hot.I usually think historicals are hystericals, but I truly loved this book I highly recommend it.

    The Wicked Wallflower is the first in an intriguing sounding new series that mixes historical and contemporary romance It will consists of three historical romance novels that are written by the protagonist of a set of contemporary novellas The author bases her novels on her own love life and the short stories show where the inspiration came from.I have been reading Maya Rodale ever since her debut novel, The Heir and the Spare, and have enjoyed all of them So I was definitely excited to try her [...]

    More of a 3.5, really It was a pretty fun read, but I had a couple of minor issues.I m one who can usually roll with some historical inaccuracies Forthright, independent, sarcastic regency heroines Sounds great Rakish, womanizing heroes who are almost always the impossible combination of rich, titled, built, intelligent, and charming, and who never ever have the myriad sexually transmitted diseases to match their alley cat lives Sign me up Because here s the thing a modern reader looking for a f [...]

    I like H in my HR That was my one line quickie review immediately upon finishing this book I planned to write a thorough review, but reconsidered If you like fun, fluffy, not badly written but utterly ahistorical romance, then you ll enjoy this book I do not and did not The author plans to publish a contemporary version of the same plot, but really it won t require much rewriting to do so.

    Guysis was a very silly book I have been reading about the Duke of Ashbrooke, who is an immensely sexy character appearing in several books throughout Rodale s later work he rescues Olivia in her book and it was swoon worthy Unfortunately, he wasn t as alluring in his own book Sure, he had his moments, but in much of the story, he was a pretty shallow playboy who cracked a kooky plan to grow up that I still don t quite understand It goes something like this 1 In a drunken state, three debutantes [...]

    Review posted Happily Ever After ReadsBlog rating B After a sherry filled tipsy night, three wallflowers, Emma, Olivia Prudence decide that the best and only way to get one of them finally engaged to be married is to simply write the engagement letter and post it in The London Weekly Emma has been counting the years now, up to 3, to when her love, Benedict, will finally propose The only issue, he s being forced by his father to marry a well off girl and Emma doesn t have much in the way of money [...]

    3.5 starsMaya Rodale s new series under the umbrella title of Bad Boys and Wallflowers consists of both Historical and Contemporary romances, in which I believe the contemporaries are modern re workings of the historicals.This first book in the series was a very enjoyable piece of well written fluff, although if you like a little actual history in your historical romances, this may not be the audiobook for you Good fluff is hard to pull off, and there s no doubt that Ms Rodale has the talent fo [...]

    My first and likely last Rodale Some redeeming humour, the occasional clever turn of phrase and good relationship portrayal between people who have difficulty expressing emotion like the duke and his aunt Last few chapters flowed well and everything was wrapped up very satisfyingly Tough to get to that point though as most of it was Torturous.Here s why 1 Endless repetition of the word wallflower We get it She s not the most popular gal at the party Repetition in general really but I ll keep tha [...]

    Lady Emma and the Duke are engaged at least on paper As soon as Ashbrooke strolled in amongst the ladies, ready to claim the fianc he had never met, I was hooked Lady Emma isn t sure how to fix the mess she has made, but she s surprised to find herself risking everything to go along with the pretend engagement While she might be saying yes in public, she keeps telling him no in private And that s when the fun begins.Blake aka Ashbrooke expects a meek, docile woman After all, she s a wallflower a [...]

    Utterly romantic story of a wallflower, Lady Emma Least Likely to Misbehave and how London s most notorious rogue, the Duke of Ashbrooke falls for her I enjoyed how Emma refused to fall to the Ashbrooke Effect but finds herself unable to stop thinking about himor kissing him Her lack of confidence in herself was a bit frustrating but Ashbrooke strives to help her see who she truly is, how he sees her some very romantic gestures happen We also see to Ashbrooke than the roguehe is deeply attached [...]

    I love Wallflower stories There was some funny, sweet dialoged moments in the book Just didn t WOW me, but am intrigued enough to want to read the next book in the series.

    The Wicked Wallflower was an enjoyable romance between a wallflower and one of society s biggest rakes and I really liked it.The Wicked Wallflower begins with Emma Avery s debut into society which doesn t go quite as she planned Flash forward three years and Emma along with her two best friends, Olivia and Prudence, are considered wallflowers and three of London s Least Likelies After the three indulge in too much sherry and a letter that should have been destroyed gets printed in the paper, Emm [...]

    Uh yeah, 5 for 5 One of the things I found out the hard way is that if you read almost 200 books from one genre, you will eventually be bored by repetitive plots But then Maya Rodale, who describes herself in her website as an author of smart and sassy romance novels, comes along and restarts my hope that maybe there are still some original historical romance novels out there, waiting to be discovered, or written, and read The super cute love story between Lady Emma and Blake, the Duke of Ashbro [...]

    I think I read a different bookLet me be frank with you I bought the book because I read the 3 star ratings and one of the reviewers was SHOCKED, shocked That the female and male leads got into some shenanigans, also mentioning that the storyline wasn t faithful to the epoch And then I began to read the book, became absorbed in the storyd I LOVED it, loved the male and female leads, the secondary characters How Ms Rodale weaved a story about dreams broken and conquered, of how a thoroughly moder [...]

    DNF a pity because this author is a good writer however, I can t be doing with the liberties she takes with the customs, rules etc of the period and the ridiculous story line I thought I might be able to enjoy it just as a light bit of holiday listening as I really like Carolyn Morris as a narrator, but even she couldn t save it

    Well done Contrived engagement, nobleman with his own purposes, a shy girl who puts a toe out of line with steel toed boots, as it were The title sums up what one wants from the genre nerdy girl makes bad with a very male man with a sense of humor The end

    So much fun and very ROMANTIC happy sigh 4.5 5 Stars, full review to follow closer to the publication date.
