From the Back of My Shelf is a bi-monthly event, that happens on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month where you pull a book from the back of your shelf (with a 2010 release or prior) and review it. It’s a way to read some of those books that have been gathering dust while new books came out. Feel free to join in and participate, and link your reviews up in the Mr Linky below. Check out more in my intro post here here.
Rating: 5 stars
A lady does not smoke cheroot. She does not ride astride. She does not fence or attend duels. She does not fire a pistol, and she never gambles at a gentlemen’s club.
Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always followed the rules, rules that have left her unmarried—and more than a little unsatisfied. And so she’s vowed to break the rules and live the life of pleasure she’s been missing.
But to dance every dance, to steal a midnight kiss—to do those things, Callie will need a willing partner. Someone who knows everything about rule-breaking. Someone like Gabriel St. John, the Marquess of Ralston—charming and devastatingly handsome, his wicked reputation matched only by his sinful smile.
If she’s not careful, she’ll break the most important rule of all—the one that says that pleasure-seekers should never fall hopelessly, desperately in love.
After finishing Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean I had to ask myself, how have I not experienced the awesome of Sarah Maclean before? I had heard of the awesome that was her books, yet for some reason I hadn’t picked up any of her books. I absolutely loved Nines Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake and am super exciting to get the rest of her books as soon as I can!
The story line of Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake is simply addicting – there is no other way to put it. I fell in love with the story and was sad when it ended. I stayed up quite late reading – I just couldn’t put it down. The romance in this one was HOT.
The characters were absolutely charming. I loved Ralston, Callie, Juliana, just everyone. They were all such unique characters. Callie had such spunk and I loved all her adventures.
This is one of those must read books! It was just so good. I loved everything about this one and this will definitely not be my last Sarah MacLean read!
