My Review:

I can understand a young woman wanting to help out her brother when he's gotten into trouble. Even doing something a bit on the risky side. But ignoring the fact that her brother was simply getting in deeper and deeper with the gambling while she was happily falling in love with his first debtor - what a fool! I just couldn't get that out of my head the whole time I was reading this book. She had a bet with the guy her brother owed. And he didn't just owe money, he owed the shares of their late father's business. Danger signs everywhere in this book. Her brother was SO scared of this guy, he was hiding in the worst part of town. This should have told her something about the nature of this guy. No. She goes to his place and makes this bet with him. Then for six nights she goes out with him. Waltzing around London town at balls and Covent Gardens. And I do literally mean waltzing. She falls for him, more and more. Of course, this IS a romance. Well, I leave it to you to decide if you want to read it or not. It just didn't make sense to me for such a great "Bad Boy" like him to waste himself on such a dumb broad as her. Personally I would have left her and her brother to their luck with the other gambling houses and found a smarter girl.

I purchased this book on BookBub (Amazon) for nothing. The opinions are fully my own.
