Wicked and the Wallflower (The Bareknuckle Bastards #1) Reviews
I didn't like Felicity and barely tolerated Devil/Devon, the only bright spot in this story was actually, Ewan/Marwick. Sorry.
Not my favorite from Sarah MacLean. The story and romance were too slow and didn’t pick up until the last third of the novel. I felt for the heroine and her struggles, but I didn’t connect with her or the hero at all. I’m still intrigued with the overall story about the siblings and am absolutely dying for a certain couple to get their book. The series has great potential and I’m looking forward to the sequels!
Full review to come!

Sarah Maclean makes me so happy. I think I've reached the point where I can no longer give an unbiased reading of any of her books.
Book 3 will definitely destroy me, and I am ready for it.
How does she do it, time after time? A dark, sexy hero and one of my all-time favorite heroines in a story that's going straight to my keeper shelf.
Longer review will be posted upon release of the book.

I believed in the romance of Dev and Felicity. Their fascina ...more
Revenge plot between two brothers turns sour when one falls for the tool of that revenge!
Felicity, the wallflower, has been chosen by Devil as a tool to thwart his brother's plot of getting a heir, but almost since the beginning Devil is intrigued by the seeminly plain woman.
As the time passes he is more and more attracted to her. She's not plain at all! On the contrary, she's very much smart and intelligent and challenges his in unexcpected ways!
I liked both Felicity and Devil, but also Grace a ...more
Well, it's been out for a month and has nearly 450 reviews and an average rating well over 4. Time to give this author a try.

Soon after the mysterious voice appears at her home in her bed chambers offering her a bargain with the Devil. He will make Felicity irresistible and land her a Duke f ...more
This was my first Sarah MacLean book and I can definitely see why she is so popular!
