The Scandalous Flirt (Cinderella Sisterhood Series) - Olivia Drake

I had trouble getting into this one. It started out slow and didn't pick up until chapter 9 when she is caught in his bed chamber looking for the letters. Once they team up to find the letters and blackmailer, the story does get better. Their romance was slow to start and there were some surprise villains and twists to who stole the letters and with her half sister Celeste. The surprises kept it interesting and book ended well.  Lucas was a strong male lead and his dilemma about whether he should marry the woman he has loved for years even though she is poor, or marry an heiress in order to save his family added some suspense to the plot.  I can't say it was my favorite story I've read this year but it was enjoyable.

Fantastic Historical Romance!
The Scandalous Flirt (Cinderella Sisterhood Series) - Olivia Drake

The Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake is an amazing, well-written book.  Ms Drake has furnished her story with phenomenal characters.  The characters made this book a joy to read.  Lucas and Rory's story is full of drama, suspense, adventure and sizzle.  Be warned though, the housework may be put on hold.  Once you start this book you may not want to put it down.  I enjoyed this book from start to finish and look forward to reading more from Olivia Drake in the future.  The Scandalous Flirt is book 6 of the Cinderella Sisterhood Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

The Scandalous Flirt
The Scandalous Flirt (Cinderella Sisterhood Series) - Olivia Drake

Usually I am wary at picking up a book that is in the middle of a series that I have not read before. I always fear that I will feel lost and not know what is going on. Luckily that was not the case with this book as I did not feel lost or that I was missing anything. 

 

In the beginning I definitely liked Rory way more than I liked Lucas. While they both had their struggles, (Rory being banished from London after a scandal with a lover and Lucas dealing with debts) Rory seemed to have grown more and become stronger than Lucas. Lucas was just a plain jerk in the beginning and I feared that he would be like that throughout the book. Luckily the more that I read the more I began to like him.

 

I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this book. I did enjoy that this was not dominated with steamy scenes but instead you really got to know the characters. Don't get me wrong there were some great steamy moments between Rory and Lucas.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Marriage of Convenience Trope Done Right
His Wicked Wish - Olivia Drake

“I was an upstart actress who sold herself to you at auction. Now I’m going into trade. I’m afraid I won’t ever be a proper society wife.”
Nathan’s mouth curved in a wicked smile that put his gorgeous dimples on display. “Then we shall be improper together.”

What do you get when you pair together a virginal actress on a mission with the black sheep of a noble family who has his own vendetta? You get one highly enjoyable historical romance that had more than its fair share of desire and drama.

 

His Wicked Wish was actually a lot of fun in addition to the passion and the family issues both of our protagonists faced. Maddy and Nate’s relationship was what really stood out to me, with their quick, witty bantering and the romance that neither of them wanted to admit to.
