Intro Babble: Connie Mason and Mia Marlowe have produced some of my favorite romances lately. The rakes are very rakey and the heroines are very relatable. It's a perfect combination.
Heroine: Serena- I really liked her. She was smart, strong and very likable. She was so even keel. Nothing really shook her. And I absolutely loved that. She was realistic in the best way possible. I became quite protective of her and I really wasn't expecting that.
Hero: Jonah- His intentions were so very bad at the start. He lived up to the term "rake" especially in the beginning of the novel. It took a bit for me to really trust him but I do think he really did truly fall in love with Serena. But I was surprised at how hard it was for me to trust his intentions with a heroine I really like.
Chemistry: I did love them together. I really did, but still, it took me awhile to trust Jonah. It definitely stayed in the back of my mind that Jonah's intentions weren't the best to start. I did wish that Serena had given Jonah a more difficult time. I very rarely want the heroine to give the hero more of a hassle but I did here.
Ending Babble: Connie Mason and Mia Marlowe write books that I like. All of them. Without fail. I love how rakish the rakes are, how relatable the heroines are and how interesting the storylines are. The rakes are especially excellent. They have this "nice boy who is also quite naughty" thing going. They are never too well-behaved but are never egregiously naughty. I absolutely love this series and I can't wait for the next book.
