Waking Up with a Rake (The Royal Rakes, #1)Waking Up with a Rake by Mia Marlowe

Book Club Review: For the Frisco TX Barnes and Noble First Monday’s book club hosted by yours truly and sponsored by DFW Tea/Fresh Fiction. If you live in the DFW area we would love for you to join us!

What I personally thought: This was a great book with a spunky leading lady that I adored. While the story started out with a storyline that I wasn’t sure about, it quickly won me over. Connie Mason/Mia Marlowe did a great job of pulling me into the story, making me like the characters, and giving me quite a few smiles in-between all the action and romance. It was pretty much right up my historical reading alley.

What the book club gals thought: Overall this one was a hit with everyone who read it at book club. The overall consensus was that the leading lady stole the show. She was spunky, fun, and not a victim. Things only happened to her with the leading man when she allowed it. She had gumption, smarts, and was just wonderful all around. The story took a bit to get into in the beginning but once it started rolling it was an easy read.

Final Thought: This was a strong beginning to a new series! Definite thumbs up!

  1. So fun, being part of a bookclub, especially as they pick books you do like to read πŸ™‚ This sounds like a good one, I have put it on my wishlist.

  2. Adore the book club image! So cute! I wish I had of gotten it read before book club. I am not sure I am going to get any of the Cover Girls books read either πŸ™

    This sounds like a book that I would enjoy. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts along with what the bookish gals thought. I am so jealous of your book club. We have a great Barnes and Noble here, but very little interest in a book club. It has been a couple of years since I have tried, so maybe I should give it another whirl.

    • You might try starting one up again. Barnes and Noble will put you in their local store newspaper plus we have a meetup group. With 50 Shades (cough, gag, cough), I think people are open to more book clubs that don’t necessarily read Oprah book club selections πŸ™‚ We consistently have 10 to 15 people come and sometimes more!

  4. Yay! I love when the heroine is spunky and fun! I’m going to have to pick this one up for my romance TBR. Thanks for sharing your book club’s thoughts and introducing me to this book! πŸ™‚

  5. I don;’t know waking up with a rake might be a little uncomfortable since they have sharp prongs. I stepped on a metal rake when I was give barefoot. Still have the scar to prove it so me and rakes do not get a long. Alright all kidding aside. this sounds fun and I so wish I could be in your book club!

  6. There’s just something about waking up with a rake…reformed rakes make the best husbands! Sounds fun and definitely up my alley.
