Joan Bennet is tired of being a wallflower. Thanks to some deliciously scandalous—and infamous—stories, she has a pretty good idea of what she's missing as a spinster. Is even a short flirtation too much to ask for?
Tristan, Lord Burke, recognizes Joan at once for what she is: trouble. Not only is she his best friend's sister, she always seems to catch him at a disadvantage. The only way he can win an argument is by kissing her senseless. He'd give anything to get her out of her unflattering gowns. But either one of those could cost him his bachelor status, which would be dreadful—wouldn't it?
So What Did I Think Of A Love and Other Scandals by Caroline Linden?
J oan and Tristan’s relationship was a battle of wills, enemies to lovers romance filled with snark, wit and blazing chemistry that I ended up enjoying in Love and Other Scandals by Caroline Linden.
I really liked how even though they came from two different social standings with Tristan being the popular sought after rake and Joan being a spinster, they came to connect with their brazen out spoken personalities and showed that they were ultimately on the same level. I enjoyed how they fell for each other, everything that made Joan different was what drew Tristan to her and in getting to know him Joan saw that Tristan was more than a callous rake.
When Tristan and Joan finally came together they blazed the pages with how hot their passion was for each other! The issues that they faced being from different social standings, Tristan being this untrustworthy rake and Joan being the sister of Tristan’s best friend, made the story very juicy.
Though there was enough action to keep me interested and reading, I’m not really a fan of inner monologues and felt that there was a bit more of that with the writing than I would have liked though it didn’t completely affect my enjoyment. Overall I enjoyed reading Love and Other Scandal by Caroline Linden.
