An Unconventional Wallflower…
Clarissa Ruthven was born to be a proper lady, but she’s never wanted to live up to the expectations her late father set. Determined to use her inheritance to help the less fortunate women of London, she’s devastated to learn that she won’t be inheriting anything until she marries, a fate she has no interest in. Unwilling to let go of her plans, Clary works at Ruthven Publishing for Gabriel Adamson, a man who’s always hated her. She’s always returned the feeling, but as she begins to turn her family’s publishing company upside down, she finds herself unable to forget her handsome boss.
Never Follows the Rules…
Gabriel Adamson believes in order. He certainly doesn’t believe Clary should be sticking her nose in the publishing company, and she definitely has no business invading his every thought. But Gabe soon finds he can’t resist Clary’s sense of freedom or her passionate kisses and he starts to crave everything she’s willing to give him.
Especially When It Comes to Love…
When Gabe’s dark past comes back to haunt him, he’ll do anything to make sure that Clary isn’t hurt…even if it means giving up the only woman he’s ever loved.
I have to say that I liked How to Woo a Wallflower. I adore Clary. I mean she's so bubbly and is willing to try anything. She's hard working, and extremely determined to help her cause. She's willing to overcome any obstacles even stubborn man. Gabe is totally awesome. I mean he's a good guy, but he likes order. He strides to live a different life than what he grew up from. He doesn't feel like he's good enough for Clary.
We have this struggle between Clary and Gabe. Clary doesn't understand why the guy doesn't like her, but it's the complete opposite. However, he doesn't see himself a good match for her, especially when his past is coming knocking on the door.
Overall, I liked the story. These characters are wonderful together. Plus, they seem to push each others buttons. She can be wild and chaotic, but sometimes you need that in your life. A fairly fast read, with romance and drama. I mean you have to people you push each others buttons the right way there is bound to be drama.
