How to Seduce a Scoundrel by Vicky Dreiling book tour review + giveaway

Title: How to Seduce a Scoundrel
Author:Vicky Dreiling
Source: received from publisher
Genre: historical romance
Format: Mass paperback

When Lady Julianne Gatewick realizes the rake of her dreams thinks of her as practically his sister, she decides it's time to get even. The charming Marc Darcett, Earl of Hawkfield, is every lady's fantasy, but he's determined to evade virgins and their matrimonial traps - especially his best friend's sister.

Hawk reluctantly agrees to be Julianne's guardian for the season, but he's having trouble resisting his gorgeous ward. Worse still, she's taunting him by flirting with every scoundrel in London - and he's sworn to protect her! Certain she's learned her tricks from the authoress of that scandalous publication "The Secrets of Seduction", Hawk sets out to uncover the writer's identity. But he never expects to find the formerly angelic Julianne behind the mask - and between his sheets.



I really hate to say this, but I just didn’t care for this book. It’s not the authors writing style, I just didn’t like the story. I found it boring and dull. There was nothing remotely interesting that really happened in the book, unless you call Julianne getting drunk one night interesting or when Hawk took her to his love nest. Ooh yeah, like that was real fun Blch, not me. I wanted desperately to stop reading, but I got this for review, so I carried on.

I didn’t care for a flip flop of the heroine. First she loved Hawk then he would do something to piss her off, so she hated him and in the next freaking moment she would fall over him again UGH. This went on for the best part of the book. And don’t let me get started on when Hawk finally proposed Grrr. Even though she has loved him since she was a kid she acted more like a kid now than when she was a kid.

Hawk wasn’t bad for a scoundrel at least he kept from women during the time of his supposed to be Julianne guardian. What I didn’t care for was Hawk treating Julianne like a kid just about the whole time, it was just annoying for me.

The loves scenes between them took forever to get to them, they were wham bam thank you maam. The thing was I never really found the sexual tension between these two from the start. I love a good build up, but I never found it.

I know some of you love the tension between a coupling, but I just can’t hack it when it’s just about the whole book and no action (and I don’t mean sex LOL) to keep me distracted.

Even though I didn't like this one you may. The thing is you don't know until you try and hey, it's free so please enter.
