With over reviews here at GR and over 1, ratings Am I the last person on Earth to read this book? Why oh why did I wait so long to join the Wallflowers fan club? I adored this book! I love a good Cinderella story. And I love a scandalous rake. And I love Cinderella and a rake together!
I loved Hannah Appleton and dark and delicious Rafe his name just oozes sexiness Bowman--their chemistry was out of this world.
I liked Hannah a lot. She was a strong, practical woman with a kind and gentle heart. I loved seeing Rafe struggling with his feelings for her as he fell under her spell. The letter that he wrote to her expressing those feelings that was tossed in the fire but recovered by a maid --holy smokes but that was hot! And the little toy soldier that he gave her and the story behind it? It just about broke my heart. It made me understand Rafe so much better. Well enough about Hannah and Rafe.
They were perfect together and I loved them. Another thing I loved about this book was that we got to see all the wallflowers and their sexy husbands again as they gather at Stony Cross manor for a Christmas celebration. Westcliff, really?! I think Lillian lost her mind for a moment there! Annabelle and Simon Hunt are as passionate as ever, Daisy and Matthew are going strong and Daisy the booklover has a new career!
Vincent who is staying with his sickly father for a while. When St. Once again, when the four wallflowers got together, it was magic. I love when they get to chatting, because all kinds of topics come up. And I especially loved the aftermath when Lillian dared to suggest to Westcliff that he may be losing interest in her If I have one minor complaint, it was the length of the book! Too short! I wanted more! The updates she related in the epilogue?
I would have loved to read some actual scenes, rather than been told what happened. The wedding, the birth of a baby, the reconciliation in the Bowman family Too bad she had to end things so abruptly.
