    I have received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.I absolutely loved this book While reading it, I had a happy grin on my face the whole time It just made me laugh and tingle, and it gave me butterflies whatcould I ask for Briar is so adorable She s a romantic and, yes, she is also a bit na ve but she is so sweet Some heroines can be a bit annoying when they are too unaware of the world, but Briar is so lovely, she made it so easy to like her, I just adored her She has suffe I have received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.I absolutely loved this book While reading it, I had a happy grin on my face the whole time It just made me laugh and tingle, and it gave me butterflies whatcould I ask for Briar is so adorable She s a romantic and, yes, she is also a bit na ve but she is so sweet Some heroines can be a bit annoying when they are too unaware of the world, but Briar is so lovely, she made it so easy to like her, I just adored her She has suffered her fair share, but we only know how everything has affected her almost at the end of the book, which was fine by me Nicholas was so sexy I mean don t ask me for a physical description because with the exception of his nose , I probably can t give you one Why Because characters in my mind, even the ones heavily described, don t actually have a defined face. There s always somewhat of a blur So no, it s not their face body that makes them sexy it helps, of course , it s how they act, and how they can make you feel like all their attention is on you, in a good way And that s how I felt Nicholas was about Briar He has other great qualities, naturally he s very loyal and protective of his family like Briar , he s been hurt before haven t we all and almost every single book character , and he s a rake But, who would have guessed He s a rake with a good heart Their chemistry was, at the same time, so strong and so subtle The teasing, and the friendship, the alone moments Everything made my senses as a reader tingle and be on the lookout for another wonderful scene The secondary characters help set the scene Briar and her family have a matchmaking agency Her friend Temperance and her brother Daniel, are looking for fiances And their cousin is Nicholas, Lord Edgemont I don t want to give too much of the story away because it s their adventures that keep us readers paying attention Suffice to say, Briar needs help with her matchmaking skills, and Nicholas isthan happy to help in exchange for a little something, as one would expect.The one thing and, let s be honest, it s a small thing that could have made this book even better, was to make the ending a bitclimatic And I think this was lacking a bit because what was preventing the happy ending was such a small thing that seemed almost not credible I really liked Nicholas dedication to try and talk to Briar, and I have to admit I was a bit disappointed that she didn t even give him a bit of credit I know, she felt hurt and deceived, but after her time spent with Nicholas, I hoped she knew better But, alas, miscommunication got in the way In the end, it was a great book, with only a small thing to point out Can t wait to read the next book in this incredible series

    A generous 2.5 i think Unfortunately, I found the heroine a little too immature and the constant mention of cup of chocolate kisses was tiresome.

    3.25 starsI received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review I mostly enjoyed my first Vivienne Lorret book Ten Kisses to Scandal drew me in despite the clich d premise that has been retold countlessly in the historical romance genre In fact, it is the retold premise that motivated me to read the book because it felt familiar and comfortable this is a story I am familiar with, a story that I find predictable, and a story that I have loved and enjoyed in the past I enjoy roma 3.25 starsI received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review I mostly enjoyed my first Vivienne Lorret book Ten Kisses to Scandal drew me in despite the clich d premise that has been retold countlessly in the historical romance genre In fact, it is the retold premise that motivated me to read the book because it felt familiar and comfortable this is a story I am familiar with, a story that I find predictable, and a story that I have loved and enjoyed in the past I enjoy romances that are based on a retold premise because I like being familiar with the story and its tropes However, keeping all of that in mind, Ten Kisses to Scandal pales in comparison to the non conforming historical romances I ve been reading lately That being said, I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a lighthearted, funny, and fluffy historical romance Nicholas and Briar are just so darn cute together and the romance is 100% worth it Onto what I loved and what I did not necessarily enjoy Let s begin with the meet cute I was not a fan I personally found it a bit distasteful for one particular reason that I won t go into you can read it and judge for yourself Fortunately, the meet cute did not taint my enjoyment of the story I adore the hero and heroine Briar is very na ve, but she is so lovely, bright, quirky, and charming that it is practically impossible to chide her for making dumb decisions Surprisingly, she very rarely made dumb decisions In fact, I thought she was very mature in the way that she dealt with her budding relationship with the hero Nicholas did not leave a good impression on me because of the meet cute, but he inevitably grew on me I ended up loving him so much The dynamic between Briar and Nicholas is honestly the best thing about this book Briar, the sweet, dramatic, and optimistic heroine paired with Nicholas, the jaded and cynical rake Briar and Nicholas made me laugh so much with their antics and I adore every single one of their scenes together Briar was perfect for Nicholas and motivated him to be happier andoptimistic On the other hand, Nicholas was perfect for Briar by bringing small doses of reality into her rose coloured view on life and love They perfectly balanced each other and their relationship had the most adorable quirks that constantly made me smile hello, rhinoceros lol My low rating doesn t have anything to do with the romance, but rather with the alarmingly multiple plot points in the story, some that were left unresolved The romance between Nicholas and Briar was the central focus of the story, but there were too many things happening outside of that circle Briar s relationship with her sisters somewhat resolved Their father s other family somewhat, but not really resolved Nicholas s first wife and how this impacted his relationship with his mother not resolved at all huge miss from the author here Nicholas s guilt regarding Daniel 100% resolved The challenge 100% resolved converges with the plot point above Temperance and her infatuation with John and how that made her completely blind to Briar s troubles not resolved in my book, no offense to Temperance The weird Mrs Teasdale what even is the point of this woman view spoiler I originally thought she would be the father s other woman which would have been a good way to tie up all the loose ends But I guess not hide spoiler I also didn t understand why Nicholas had to grovel when he didn t even do anything wrong I love a good groveling, but I m not sure it was necessary in this instance These plot points are all connected, some have stronger connections, others have a weak connection Regardless of these connections, I don t understand why there was a need for this much drama The author could have easily just focused on the romance and the familial strains in both Briar and Nicholas s lives I think this would have made the story stronger and broughtsubstance to the plot overall Anyway, I am extremely excited for Ainsley s story She s very different from Briar and I love the dynamic between her and Reed The next book seems like it ll be equally fun Hopefully there won t be too many supporting characters and their drama suffocating the story
