The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel by Jennifer McQuiston (Review)

When this book first came out, I had started The Perks of Loving a Scoundrel. The sad thing was I so close to finishing the story, but something stopped me from reading. I put it aside, and I finally finished the story. I'm kicking myself, because I was soooo close to the end😫. Moving on. 

Truth be told, the story was meh. I think part of the reasons I stopped reading the story was I had other things pressing, and I figure I can put this aside. It has taken me a few years to come back to the story, and I had to restart the story. We meet Mary Channing who came to help her sister out, but her sister had other ideas. Her twin sister wanted Mary to experience a season, and possibly find love. However, Mary is content with her nose in a book. Then we meet Geoffrey Westmore, a well known scoundrel. Always scamping around London, but he accidentally gets trapped into marriage with Mary. All she wanted to do is prevent an assassination plot that they over heard together.  

We have a mouse heroine and a rake of a hero. West is trying to keep Mary safe, but she doesn't want to be left out of action. Both finding that they might actually find themselves please to be together. There were a few surprises I didn't expect. Overall, not a bad read. I'm glad to finally finish the story.
