Road Trip Road Trip Road Trip Saddle up those ponies we are off on an adventureKasey Michaels has been around for uite awhile In fact a number of her older books are some of my favorites but I ve been disappointed in her newer offerings I opened The Taming of the Rake with a little trepidation Have you ever picked up a book and from the very first page just knew that it was going to be a humdinger Well my fellow readers Ms Michaels latest is that and I was than delighted to find a little bit of the old Kasey Michaels hiding in those chaptersThis is the beginning of a new series about the three illegitimate Blackthorne brothers Beau Puck and Jack The first story is about the eldest brother Beau and his nemesis the heroine ChelseaAs I read this story it became hard for me to say which of these two characters I liked best I love Chelsea she reminded me a lot of some of the women from a Preston Sturges movie rapid fire snappy smart dialog uick witted and always one step ahead of the hero This doesn t mean she s mean it s just she has a wise cracking mouth However she has a brain to go with that mouth She also sees the frailties of the people surrounding her especially our hero BeauBeau What a wonderful hero And the moniker of rake is misleading he s of a a bad boy Beau s character is also loaded with fun dialog but there seem to be layers to him And after being introduced to his mother and father a lot of his layers are explained Ms Michaels has created uite a fascinating dysfunctional family I m really looking forward watching the family dynamics unfold Beau s brother Puck plays a large part in this book and while he seems a bit of a frivolous fellow I suspect there s a lot that doesn t meet the eye Jack has a smaller part in the book however his character seemed to be a lot darker And wait till you meet the mother what an appalling womanBack to Beau I loved watching him as he fell in love it was a mighty struggle but pretty funnyThe is also a trio of villains or as they end up a trio of not very nice sleazy people They were even interesting but I doubt we will see them in the next books The Taming of the Rake was a great story of two people who have an adventure and along the way discover love I was on my way to giving this book a really high rating except there was just one too many adventures or maybe two to many And even though there was an explanation given for the enmity between Beau and Chelsea s brother I found it a little lacking considering how many lives were disrupted But those were just minor uibbles in an otherwise wonderful book For those of you who are fans of Ms Michaels you re going to like this one And for those of you who have never read her this is a good one to start with

There s a reason we tell people not to judge a book by its cover Nothing from the outside gives you a real feel for what you ll find on the page here First I take issue with the title Beau is not a rake and the book is in no way about changing his habits with women Second the cover is terrible the models his outfit blech And finally the blurb It makes this sound like it s about Beau s uest with Chelsea as a distraction when in fact our heroine is truly the driving force in the story Indulge me for a moment and let me tell you about what you ll really find if you open up this bookChelsea s boor of an older brother Thomas wants to force her into marriage with a disgusting clergyman So she makes a run for it heading straight to the door of Beau Blackthorn It s been seven years since she last saw him on the day he tried to propose to her older sister Madelyn Not only did Madelyn spurn his affections but Thomas horsewhipped him in the street for reaching above his station Beau may be a man of means and education but he and his brothers are bastards and will never truly be accepted by the TonOver the years Beau has been working secretly to ruin Thomas financially And Chelsea knows all about it So she presents him with an offer of marriage It will allow her escape from her brother and give Beau a chance for true revenge against the man who humiliated him all those years ago He accepts and the two of them go on the run to Gretna Green with Thomas Madelyn and the Reverend in hot pursuitOn their travels we see a real relationship begin to develop for our couple of convenience Chelsea is determined to press forward to create a real marriage that Thomas cannot impeach But she can t know how real the passion will be or that her emotions would become so invested By the same token Beau thinks he only accepted Chelsea s offer for its face value He thinks after the debacle with Madelyn he ll never love again nor does he want to But Chelsea is like no woman he s ever known She is bold honest and seems not to care at all about their social differencesI really liked Beau He s been kicked in the teeth but still manages to be a good man He s even appealing because he doesn t see his own worth Watching his tentative steps towards love is really uite nice And I ll admit I enjoyed the love scenes tooThere are also some really engaging secondary characters Thomas is a fairly good foil But the big draw is Beau s dysfunctional family His mercurial brother Puck his dark mysterious brother Jack his horrible selfish mother All were fascinating and will make for some great future booksThere were only two things that really didn t work well for me The writing style was at times a bit difficult to follow By that I don t mean the story was hard to follow but rather the sentences often felt like they had way too many words or phrases stuffed in them to read smoothly Sometimes there were so many dependent clauses crammed into one sentence I d have to go back and re read it a couple of times to understand what it meant The whole book wasn t written this way but it happened enough times that it bothered me Let me give you an example from the very first pageAnd so it was that with the clouded vision of a man besotted that the same Oliver Le Beau Blackthorn raised to think uite highly of himself the eual to all men did with hat figuratively in hand hope in his heart and a bunch of posies clutched to his breast bound up the marble steps to the mansion in Portland Place one fine spring morning and smartly rap the massive door with the lion s head brass knockerThat is all one sentenceMy second problem was of a plot issue In the last uarter of the book Thomas ends up changing his outlook on life several times in just a few short chapters I didn t really understand what drove the developments for his character once they neared Gretna Green and it kind of left me scratching my headBut overall I did enjoy the book And I look forward to seeing what happens with the other Blackthorn brothers especially Jack 4 stars ARC Provided by NetGalley
