Now that s what I m talking about Scoundrel was the experience I was hoping and expecting to have with Warrior What a relief to know that there s nothing wrong with me after all Now I can completely understand the hype for this series Loved It I may even consider joining the fangirl ranks if the next book hits me like this one didBefore I go any further if there s anyone reading this review who like me was a little under whelmed by Warrior give the series another chance with this book I complained in my review of Warrior that the book just didn t grab me Well Scoundrel grabbed me with both hands gave me a good shake and didn t let goI also had some vague concerns about the pacing and narration of Warrior but there was nothing vague about my complete and utter enjoyment of this novel and the pace was absolutely perfectBlades of the Rose agent Bennett Day is dedicated to keeping the world s magical Sources from the hands of the nefarious Heirs That the cause provides him with action adventure excitement and danger on a daily basis is a very happy bonus The fact that seducing women can sometimes get him the information or results he needs well that s just the icing on the cakeYes Bennett is a scoundrel and he loves every minute of itLondon Harcourt is the daughter of one of the Heir s leaders Being a woman she has never been made privy to the work of her father and late husband also an Heir and killed by the Blades of the Rose Her life has been one of repression first by her father and then by her husbandWhen London s secretly self taught linguistic skills become essential to the success of one the Heir s missions London discovers the truth about her family and herself Despite the fact that they are potential enemies Bennett and London cannot deny their fierce attraction to each other and soon find themselves on the adventure of a lifetime through the Greek Isles Scoundrel is the perfect adventure romance with the adventure and romance elements perfectly balanced and immensely satisfying This book grabbed my attention from the very first page and never let goBennett was a wonderful hero I absolutely adored him with his devil may care attitude He was honest and upfront about his reputation and intention to continue as something of a ladies man believing himself incapable of committing to just one woman I really appreciated his honesty with London He determined that London should leave the richer for having known him and he allowed her the freedom to discover and be herself guiding and encouraging her along the waySeeing London find her wings was a pleasure to witness I shared in her joy of her long denied freedom and it was wonderful to watch her finally living and breathing unstifled life Her pleasure was infectious and her adventurous spirit once uncovered was a perfect fit to Bennett And watching him fall was just sigh Even better we didn t have to wait til the last pageI m really looking forward to Rebel because this book Monkeys in hats

Free download ¸ Scoundrel Ets Bennett Day Day is a ladies' man when he's not dodging lethal attacks to protect the powers of. 5 Monkeys in hats Stars This was a bit sci fi ishparanormal I don t know how to classify other than IT WAS AWESOMEI LOVED ITWHERE HAS THIS BEEN HIDINGThe story is about Bennett a cryptographer and consummate ladies man who is a member of a secret organization called the Blades of the Rose they dedicate their lives to finding and protecting magical Sources from those wishing to use it against humanity and London a self taught linguist and English miss thrust into a dangerous war between good and evil This was packed with flawlessly descriptive passages that painted the world Zoe Archer has created vividly It had all the elements of a great story humor action mystery great characters an imaginative plot and an epic love storyI loved reading this I enjoyed the adventure aspect the magical elements and even though Bennett had a history as a man who enjoyed his women I found him to be entertaining honest and it didn t take me long to fall for him Now normally a connoisseur of ladies like Bennett do not score very high with me but Bennett did a complete 180 as soon as his eyes caught sight of London Still it was hard to forget her even harder to ignore that strange vivid moment when his fingers had touched her hand In all his years after countless encounters with a vast array of women Bennett couldn t recall ever having so visceral so immediate a reaction to touching a woman And it had gone beyond the physical too A sudden profound connection with no known origin other than something in his body that recognized her knew and needed her He wasn t your typical player Bennett just loved women He loved all types or women and he wasn t callous disrespectful or disparaging towards them He genuinely cared for them in his own way He was a handsome guy who lived day to day He was charming and seductive and carefree Although he fought himself and denied deeper lasting feelings for London it wasn t long before he caved And London she was his perfect match Smart brave and so ready to live and love I liked her from the very first It was hard to resist her brand of magic When I am with the man I love everything else will disappear I ll see only him He will be the person I want to share everything with If I am walking alone and I see something beautiful like a wildflower poking up from the pavement or something ridiculous like a monkey in a hat I will rush to tell him these things And in the dark of night he alone is who I will want beside me and I ll listen to him breath in sleep and I shall put my hand upon him and hope he dreams of me for I couldn t bear even a moment apart from him She was a blend of sheltered innocent and daring adventurer She is the type of heroine I instantly connect with because she s everything you d want to be courageous independent and strong It was a blast to see her go from fragile to kick ass In the end someone so awesome deserves getting everything her heart desired and I think Bennett definitely gave it his all even if it did take him a few dense moments to realize it Lol It took a while but the wait was worth it Monkeys in hats he said again with a growing heat That s what I mean when I say I love you I mean that you re the woman I need beside me all day every da I mean that I can t imagine my life without you I mean that when you hurt it feels like a knife in me cutting me from the inside out I mean that I hate the idea of anyone but me touching you Just the thought makes me want to kill I mean that I hate the idea of me touching anyone but you I meant that when I see a goddamn monkey wearing a goddamn hat I want to tell you about it You and no one else Needless to say I was left with no doubt in my mindheart that he was in love with London That she was special significant and the ONLY ONE when it came to his love he was committed to her in mind body and soul and I loved that Not only did he give me that moment when he proved his love was forever but he was also damn alpha about it I don t care what words anyone uses Use the words of all the languages you know Or make some up Doesn t matter What matters is that I want to be with you forever only you This was a five star read for me because I know this story and these awesome characters will live in my memories and every once in a while I ll remember monkeys in hats or recall a snippet of a scene about sea strumpets and I ll find myself hunting down this book and sitting down to a nice comfortable re readThis is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone Ends with a HEA and doesn t have Cheating view spoiler There is a scene where a sea nymph demands a kiss from Kallas and Bennett as the price for some much needed info the life or death kind So Bennett tries to give her a fraternal kiss on the mouth but the nymph forces the issue and he describes it as kissing an amorous octopus That whole scene was funny and London was there and although she wasn t okay with it she knew that it meant less than nothing to her man so I was okay with it Didn t take away anything from the story and just solidified their love for each other hide spoiler
