5star rating for a 5star Series!!!, April 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Beauty and the Rake (The Rookery Rogues Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
I received this arc from the author for an honest review. That being said I have read the first book where Michael and Abigail’s story began. I’m thrilled to see a series about the lower classes in London’s history! It shows how policing was just getting started and the poor condition of anyone who wasn’t fortunate enough to be born into the aristocracy!! This book was beautifully written! Written as a twist on beauty and the beast. Abigail felt like s beast because of what the Larkers did to her while torturing her for information. But she was a beautiful girl and Michael was only seeing the beauty of her soul he didn’t care about her scar’s. But he had to convince her! Because he was a jaded rake who she couldn’t trust because he was a peeler (police) and if you were caught talking to peelers you ended up dead!! When he took her into hiding he learned he cared for someone beside himself!! And after a lot of cajoling he tried to teach her to have fun not be so serious there was a very touching scene in the garden which was the turning point in this story! When they both came to the realization that maybe together they could have more out of life than the misery they had both had so far I loved this book! And look forward to the next in this series!!!
