The Ruin of a Rake by Cat Sebastian

The Ruin of a Rake - Cat Sebastian
Now this is how one does a romance. I nearly fell into deep despair after recently attempting to finish another (not by this author) that had amazing reviews and fell so flat for me that I wanted to weep. I know I sound dramatic but I feared I was over romances forever and that made me feel ugh and burned out. Romances are my palate cleanser between dark and devastating horror novels and without them I'm not sure how long I'd continue to be drawn to books. Any books, if I'm being completely honest. But it wasn't me. It was the book. Phew. Now you'll have to continue reading my shoddy reviews for a bit longer, haha.

I listened to The Ruin of A Rake on audio and I didn't take any notes because I just wanted to enjoy the experience so I have no quotes or nothing much to say other than that if you love a romance between two very different people who make each other better people when they're together I think you're going to fall in love with this story. As I mentioned in my earlier update, I didn't realize this was book #3 in a series when I requested it from Overdrive but don't let that stop you. I never felt out of the loop or info. dumped upon. Knowing this is a mid series book makes me desperately want to search out the others but they are not necessary for you to adore this one.

Five stars for a most excellent story. I can't wait to read more by this author who has restored my faith in the romance genre.
