PDF Reforming a Rake BY Suzanne Enoch
First the positive comments I liked the hero in that he had humor and sex appeal The secondary storyline and the characters cousin and auntwas plausible and humorous There was a cute little og in the book and being a og lover I liked thatNow the negative I idn t like the uickie sex I rather enjoy two or three pages of a sex scene and this book just Neville Goddard didn t steam I was saying to myself Is that all Also the heroine was stubborn to the point of really irritating me Maybe it was my mood because I wasistracted but I kept wishing the book would end and almost stopped reading it a "Time Or TwoI Don T "or twoI Paleoepidemiology The Measure of Disease in the Human Past Publications of the Institute of Archaeology University Col don t if I will pursue reading Enoch right now The Suzanne Enoch With This Ring series is not uite as popular as some of her others but I love Enoch novels so I wanted to give it a try The first installment Reforming a Rake is only recommended if you re willing to put up with some sillyrama in order to still get scraps of funny The Work and the Glory Volume 7 No Unhallowed Hand dialogue I m running out of Enoch novels so I was willing and because of my mindset going in Iidn t mind when the plot veered into the absurd and my first impression of the hero was that he was a pervAnyway the hero Lucien is a maruess looking for a governess to give his cousin some polish so he can get her married ASAP and thus out of his house and his life He is Railway Engineering dry and cutting and seems to be fueled entirely by lust When he meets the heroine Alexandra he ignores all of therama in her past and hires her on the spot simply because he finds her The Christian Topography of Cosmas an Egyptian Monk delicious He propositions her from the first interview and continues to be uite persistent I found this a bit creepy especially because she was supposed to be an employee However Enoch has a breezy writing style so I continued to fly through pages and see the real Lucien behind all the inappropriate remarks and cutting wit He was actually a pretty nice guy but he forgot how to be one because he spent so much of his life isolating himself from others Alexandra with her forthright nature beauty and Profits in the Stock MarketWith Charts decorum crept under Lucien s skin and made him grow addicted to her As their relationshipeveloped I grew to like Lucien and Alexandra less At first she came across as a strong woman who had forged her own path in a world that was often grossly unfair to women unprotected by family or fortune However once she was presented with a perfect solution to all her problems as well as Lucien s her brain cells started to The Night Country die off inroves and she swung from being a pragmatic graceful heroine to an idiotic shrew who Jupiters child didn t know her own mind I felt like most of therama was put in here to fill pages and it frustrated me because the heroine s behavior made absolutely no sense Lucien for his part actually redeemed himself in this book As a counter to the heroine s off the wall behavior he Abnormal Psychology decided if he couldn t beat em he join em and he came up with a hare brained scheme that was so ridiculous it somehowworked His antics and funny observations were the only reason I finished this book It is funny how a character that made such a poor first
#impression became my #became my of the book but that s Enoch for you She really Closer Stage Dive does create fun heroesOh and one thing the sex scenes were an enormousisappointment There was such a build up of tension and Enoch painted Lucien as some sex god so I was less than impressed when the scene came and went on a page I m not one who needs a sex scene but if its a huge theme of the book then the sex scene better be a good one or the book just Level Up!: Press Start doesn t uite work That was the case here I had one of those That s it moments To borrow from my GR friend Ally who always has such humorous but spot on observations it was one of those stick it in and be blissful situations that just felt MEH You have been warnedSo in a nutshell this book was silly It wasn t realistic and the heroine s brain turned to mush about 65% of the way through But it s Enoch and I still laughed and I still read it uickly It wasn t memorable by any stretch but I still liked it Ion t uite know how she Beasts and Priests A Selection of Portraiture does it but there you go 3ish stars for Lucien Reforming a Rake is the story of Alexandra and LucienOur H is an infamous rake with no concern for anything apart from his mistresses and gambling Whenistant relations are thrust upon him forcing him to sponsor his nervous poorly رجم الزاني جريمة يهودية وافتراء على الإسلام dressed cousin for the season while bearing her shrewd vapor prone mom he is forced to take matters into his own hand Hiring a governess for the same he never expects it would be the extremely beautiful yet infamous h Employing her on the spot he then proceeds to try to seduce her while the h stands her ground yet responding to his passionate kisses But whenisrupting forces smell a romance things get muddled up and the h is forced to thwart the H Will he win her back Or is it she who will reform the rakeHonest.

hair out of her face and saw her abductor Lucien she shrieked What in God s name are you I m kidnapping you he said calmlyAnd your littleog too For 40% of this story the hero was unnecessarily rude the saying honesty without tact is cruelty needs to be written on a chalkboard 100 times by him There was also an icky feeling to how he pursued and came at the heroine you know his employed at his mercy governess He mellows tow Oh ear Lord the stupidity in this novel is astounding I can t even believe that Suzanne Enoch penned this monstrosity This is efinitely one of the most frustrating books I have ever had the misfortune to read and I can t believe that a favourite author of mine wrote it What s wrong about it you ask Ha What s right about it would be a better uestion The heroine Alexandra was supposed to be this prim and proper and intelligent governess when in reality she s so fucking stupid it boggles the mind how she managed to breathe without assistance Seriously Whenever Lucien came on to her she Competitive Programming 4 Book 2 d go all Oh I am never going to be your mistress Shame on you And then she proceed on accepting his kisses and would kiss him in return

YOUR MIND AND START OWNING UP TO YOUR ACTIONS MOTHERFUCKER Everything would ve been less painful if Lucien was just likeable Noice He was an arrogant son of a bitch who spends his time insulting his cousin who idn t eserve his cruelty There was no character evelopment at all And by the 75% marker I stopped caring about them altogether I hate stupid heroines and bullshit heroes That s why this sorry excuse for a romance novel annoyed the bejesus out of me What a waste of Suzanne Enoch s talent This was so bad I wouldn t even recommend it to my enemy. Ke in London Though the sinfully attractive earl hired her to teach his young cousin his seductive whispers and toe curling kisses suggest he has something far less respectable in mindand that will never happen For although Lucien seems etermined to teach her about pleasure she has a few lessons to teach him about love. ,
