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 I didn t think it would be possible for this series to get any better but Zoe Archer proved me wrong with Scoundrel Everything that made Warrior great only made Scoundrel better The ZA builds this world of The Blades of the Rose the need to want to know just keeps growing This time around the setting is Greece and their islands while it didn t go as in depth as Warrior did in the culture it turned out to be done very well with most of the story revolving around island jumping and the rag tag team racing against time and the vil Heirs in order to protect the magical Source As the world of The Blades of the Rose grows with ach book we learned about types of magical Sources because of the ancient language that surrounds the recent Source Lord

held At times this made him a little shallow with his feelings toward women but that was Bennett and when he finally gives his heart he gives his fully and wholehearted It s really cute and sexy how hard both London and Bennett fall for one another both Zack (Areion Fury MC evenach other out Bennett gives London the freedom and acceptance she always craved while London grounds Bennett and gives him the steady rock in the world whirl he may get stuck in The secondary romance also gave us another view of a growing romance between Athena a witch and Kallus the captain of their small boat The only really slip I had with the book is how uickly London went from hate to love for Bennett whom was a suppose foe of the heirs and her family This was just a blip in overall amazing book and really just overlooked it and continued to Shadow on the Crown (The Emma of Normandy Trilogy, enjoy this book The story moves uickly with London dealing with her father s actions and Bennett dealing with his

as possible I know for a fact this Blade of the Rose fangirl can t wait for the next installment to this amazing series.

Trigger warnings Super controlling parent torture35 stars Okay here s the thing I really like the stories in this series They re set in fun locations The magic system is super co caiue Greek fishing boad Loved this one Why did I wait so long to continue this second in the Blades of the Rose series It is a wonderful paranormal romance action adventure set in a stunning local Greece I njoy a good road trip story and this is one that takes place on the ocean Seems to me to have romance this time around than the first one did or is that just my imagination There s certainly magic in the air as well as on the sea A delightI was as Taxi ins Glück enchanted with the heroine London coming awake and aware of the world as much as with the superhero Bennett realizing there really can be just one woman for himspecially if it is London Bennett sure painted himself into a corner with his philosophy on the three little words and it was neat to see how Ms Archer was going to get him out of it Here is a hint view spoiler hide spoiler 45 StarsThis was an xcellent follow up to the fabulous first book Warrior I was pretty stoked about that because it gives me confidence about how the rest of the series will turn out Sometimes an author just cannot live up to how xcellent the first book in a series is and it is such a disappointment to the reader That s not the case hereI think the author made an Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas exceedingly smart choice by moving the location of this book We aren t in Mongolia with this one we re in Greece and the islands nearby I loved the Mongolian scenery but by having this one in Greece I didn tven have the slightest urge to stop and compare it to the first book We didn t get uite the same sense of culture and information about Greece that we did about Mongolia in the first book but that s understandable The characters were on a ship for most of the book and weren t visiting the islands The Magic Rolling Pin enough to give a well developed sense of the people there We did get a glimpse of them now and then but they did feel like scenery than full robust characters I really liked getting to watch the romance between the secondary characters on the ship We didn t actually dwell on their relationship from their pov we just got to watch it from Bennett and London s pov I liked that because I never felt that it took away time from London and Bennett s relationship as I sometimes do with secondary romances that have half of the book devoted to them but I did look forward to a glimpse of their relationship progress now and then I loved that they felt necessary to the bookven if it wasn t their story I Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, especiallynjoyed watching Athena come into her own with her powers It was really nice getting a glimpse of someone who has gifts that they were born with Although I do still wonder about Bennett s affinity with shadowsI really Not Without a Fight enjoyed watching London move past her initial restrictions Not only was she the daughter of thenemy trying to fit in with a group who hates her family she was raised as the traditional delicate English rose She didn t have adventures and she didn t know how to take care of herself in a fight It was nice that she wasn t magically a Xena like character right out of the gate I Garden Bouquets and Beyond enjoyed watching her become someone stronger and confident in herself I also liked watching the joy and verve she had forvery new The Unseen Wonder experience she came across Here was a girl who had longed for life and finally she got a taste of itI reallynjoyed the initial struggle and anger London had over the reveal of Bennett s past with her It added some much appreciated tension I also The Management Bible enjoyed watching Bennett circle around her trying to find a way to insert himself into her regard He wanted her to look at him and see someone she wanted to spend time with I also really liked that London did not cast aside the life that she had known at the drop of a hat I found her behavior much realistic and interesting than if she had known Bennett for five minutes and believe him right away Then I would have just thought she was an idiotBennett was such a fun character I reallynjoyed being in his head Just like with the first book his internal dialogue kept me giggling I really Zu schnell enjoyed his life outlook He was such an in the moment guy I don t mean that he didn t have the ability to think long term I mean that he could take pleasure from the little things that hencountered daily He didn t need much to stay happyI really felt for both of the characters when they had that discussion about what love meant to them I liked that London wasn t willing to settle for less in the long term but didn t dismiss his view as foolish She never dismissed his belief she just made it clear that it didn t mean the same thing to her My heart broke for them later when he kept saying something and she kept ignoring it vague on purpose to avoid spoilers Then when they talked about the monkey hats I couldn t help but sigh The only reason I gave this5 stars less than the first one was because I wanted a bit struggle on Bennett s part winning London Where I loved the first one for its lack of drama I really would have appreciated a bit here I just felt that Sleepless (Bird of Stone, everything cameasily to Bennett and I would have njoyed watching him work for it Like he did when she was ticked at him on the ship originally He kept sticking a hand out hoping for her to give him an opening and she just kept slapping it away Other than that tiny little niggle I njoyed the book immensely I can t wait to get my hands on Rebel This book was ven better than the first one and I didn t think that would be possible What I love about these stories is that we don t have silly fighting between our hh Instead we get them forming a strong and lovi.
