Publisher's Summary

In the fifth novel of the captivating Rhymes with Love series from New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Boyle, a young woman's hopes of a match encounter a wickedly handsome complication....
Lavinia Tempest has been eagerly anticipating a spectacular season. But one disastrous pile-up on the Almack's dance floor derails all her plans. Added to that, the very stunning revelations about her mother's scandalous past have become the ton's latest on dits. Lavinia's future has gone from shining bright to blackest night in one misstep.
Alaster "Tuck" Rowland admits he's partly to blame for Lavinia's disastrous debut. But it's not guilt that compels him to restore her reputation. Rather, he's placed a wager that he can make Lavinia into one of the most sought-after ladies in London. Who better than an unrepentant rake to set society astir?
Tuck's motives are hardly noble. But in teaching the lovely Lavinia how to win any man she wants, he suddenly finds himself tangled in the last place he ever imagined: in love.

STORY: The only reason I gave this tale 4 stars (4.5 would have been more accurate ) is due to the retelling of Louisa's story... Granted they're twins and it's all happening at the same time but still.... it wasn't as good because we knew half the story. But still it was so good!!!

NARRATOR: As usual Susan Duerden did an excellent job. I like all her voices both male and female.

HEAT FACTOR: Luke warm but for two very brief steamy moments!!!

Pretty good story, good narration.

This was a decent story, not my favorite of the series, but still an enjoyable listen. I liked the heroine Lavinia she was fun, and not always so proper LOL. I liked Tuck too. They did have some good chemistry and attraction to each other. It was real an not forced. There is one sex scene at the end that was very mildly nicely written.

The story line seemed to drag a bit until about 50% then picked up a bit. It did take me a little longer to get through this but I am glad I finished it. There is a lot of dialogue throughout the entire book. I love lots of dialogue.

As for the narration, it was good. I do like Susan Duerden, she reads with a lot of emotion and the men sound like men, all the characters have their own voice. Some of the singsong reading can get on my nerves sometimes, but you can get past it.
