Meredith Duran Ø Wicked Becomes You READER

Meredith Duran Ø Wicked Becomes You READER Longer works for her then it’s time to learn to be naughty Happily she knows the perfect tutor Alexander Ramsey her late brother’s best friend and a notorious rogue So why won’t a confirmed scoundrel let her be as bad as she wants to be Unbeknownst to Gwen Alex’s aloof demeanor veils his deepest unspoken desire He has no wish to see her change nor to tempt h Absolutely fantastic everything one could want in a romance and Wicked Becomes You is a fabulous read and I cannot recommend it enough You know those books where you find yourself going back and rereading paragraphs or sentences and grinning stupidly and foolishly despite yourself That was me with this book This is my first Meredith Duran though I own two others by her and just haven't gotten around to reading them yet April 27 was a blockbuster romance day both for contemporary and historical and I'm not sure why I decided to start off with Duran's book but I am so glad I did though she ruined me for the others I am a longtime historical romance reader and this book truly has it all My only fear about writing my opinion about this book and thus a glowing review is that when a person's expectations are so high they're almost invariably disappointed and I want everyone who reads this book to enjoy it as much as I did Oh well because I just have to share ; especially since after a number of bad new romance releases I seem to have miraculously stumbled upon a lucky streak with Sarah MacLean's Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake Anne Gracie's The Perfect Rake which isn't new but was to me and now this utterly delightful read that is definitely joining my all time favoritesTHE PROSI haven't written any cons so don't bother looking for that section The leading characters were fantastic complex perfect together though believable presenting one another with a challenge and two of my favorite leads of all time The tension between them was charged the chemistry sizzling and the banter absolutely a delight to read There were many many scenes and exchanges that had me literally laughing out loud and even now bring a smile to my face and the historical backdrop was detailed without being overwhelming authentic and vividly describedThe twists and turns were unexpected keep you on your toes and unsure yet don't overshadow the main feature of the hero and heroine's relationship and also don't seem obvious contrivances by the author well I mean taking into account that you are reading fiction of course and historical romance fiction at that This is one of those books where you wish there was a seuel that continues the main characters' story so you can encounter and enjoy them againOUR HEROINE AND HERO Gwen 23 and Alex 28These two characters were so wonderful which in this case was completely essential since it is really a character driven book You wouldn't think so because there are other plots going on uestions lurking in the background the story moves from London to Paris to Nice to Monte Carlo etc However when it comes down to it this book is about one woman discovering that she is not who she has been trying to force herself to be for so many years; it's about one woman actually living life for herself instead of for others And it's about the one man who has suspected she was different than she seemed has seen glimpses of this possibility in her for years and who joins her in her discovery and along the way faces his own fears God could I make it sound cornier But it's true And need I say wonderfully skillfully done Gwen and Alex are so perfect for one another though you definitely wouldn't think it at first She's the nice proper darling of the ton whom everyone loves Gwen lives strictly within the rules of society afraid to vary from the norm in any way living a careful balancing act and playing a part that she has come to believe or wanted to believe is true Alex lives to confront and deviate from any strictures or society guidelines he meets and of course holds nothing but gentle contempt and amusement for people like Gwen He runs from any hint of ties or roots to people or places what she yearns for above all has traveled the world is from the aristocracy but earns very successfully his own living and is comfortable in his skin no matter where he is Gwen is from new money and was sent off to school at a young age to learn how to be a proper young lady her parents died shortly after and then her brother died a few years later She is utterly alone and yettherefore has surrounded herself with people whom she has madecharmed to like her Honestly in the first two chapters she seems spineless and weak her friends are vapid and twittery and I was afraid that Gwen was not going to be a likable heroine This was not at all the case Gwen's transformation is wonderful and believable and a rocky roller coaster ride that the reader experiences along with her Alex's contempt and condescension for what he sees as an urge she will uickly repress is invariably turned on its head She challenges him at every turn while at the same time Alex also challenges her betting she won't take the plunge and then surprised when she does though always with her own twist and still tentative trying out her newfound wings He is overprotective yet not wanting to be anxious to see her change while at the same time afraid of no longer being able to stay away from this new Gwen and in the end so sweet and tender towards her Sigh Basically JUST READ ITUPDATE 532010 Just finished Duran's Bound by Your Touch was also fantastic and definitely a five star read though in some ways Wicked Becomes You was better mainly because the relationship was tenderersweeter and the book was so laugh out loud funny
