3.5 - 4 stars?
I really liked that the MMC did not call the FMC ugly, plain and stupid over and over. He was smitten pretty much right away. Like, low fucking bar I KNOW but some of these histroms really think they are doing something when characters constantly call the others ugly until they bang and then SUDDENLY the person is not longer ugly but ugly and fucked.

Anyway. There were some really dark themes in here - child abuse, sa of underage person, trauma from abuse, gaslighting, robbery, etc. but I swear I laughed so often - there were some truly hilarious parts. I loved Prudence and her schemes that just would not go right.… (mais)

The beginning of this book was so ridiculous and adorable (a rake sees a cute kid with messy hands, holds said kid and decides he wants to have a cute kid of his own but OF COURSE he has to find a wife, first). There is a lot of bad sex that turns into really good sex eventually and most of it takes place on a boat. I skimmed some but overall this was fine! I'd like to read more by Anne Gracie.

ok a handful of moments really did make me laugh aloud. it has the funniest meet cute i've ever read or seen. that said, this is still a gd mess.

i also have to mention that this man is NOT a rake. charm and humor does not a rake make. where is the debauchery?!

-.5 stars for pretending to be a rake! 2.5/5!!

Great book -- I liked the characters, the romances, the twist on the usual kind of plotline. Most of all, I really loved the kindness throughout, and the sense of humor.
