50 Ways to Ruin a Rake (Not Quite Ladies, #1)
Release date: May 5, 2015
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca

Series: Not Quite Ladies #1

Mellie has a plan…

Mellie Smithson is trapped in the country with no suitors and no prospects on the horizon except, perhaps, the exasperating—although admittedly handsome—guest of her father. She's looking for any excuse to go to London to meet more eligible men.

Trevor has a problem…

Trevor Anaedsley's grandfather has cut off his funds until such time as he gets engaged. Trevor escapes to the country—ostensibly to visit his old tutor, Mr. Smithson, but actually to duck his creditors—where he meets Smithson's lovely daughter, Mellie. The obvious solution is suddenly before him—but the lady has ideas of her own, and Trevor's going to have to measure up…

My Rating: 4 Roses

A really sweet and enjoyable historical romance, 50 Ways to Ruin a Rake was a great read. I really liked it.

Mellie was a strong minded heroine. When she set her mind to something, there was no doubt that it would be done. My only issue with her was that she let herself be put into a box and nearly ended up in a miserable life because of that. But, otherwise, I liked her.

Trevor was sweet, though woefully oblivious. He was charming and adorable, but he couldn't see what he had right in front of him. But, I still like him anyway.

The romance was nice. Mellie and Trevor were great together, even though it took them a long time to realize that for themselves.

The plot was well paced, though there were some parts that were slower than others. I enjoyed the story, particularly the bits of humor that were found throughout, and the ending was great.

50 Ways to Ruin a Rake was a lovely historical romance that I enjoyed. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out
