London's Perfect Scoundrel

London's Perfect Scoundrel - Suzanne Enoch 3.5 stars, I could have given 4 stars if I didn't read "Taming Rafe" from Enoch already, which is my quintessential 4 stars.

I think Enoch does well with the light-hearted romances. No dark heroes, but her rakes are very likable. Saint, the hero in his book, really is a scoundrel. He isn't noble but you still like him. Evelyn the heroine is nice enough. I don't mind a heroine with a mission but to kidnap Saint to convince him...........woman are you daft?
I think the plots are hard to believe, kidnapping, sex in public (albeit in a dark corner), sex in a cave, virginal heroine turned wanton, just to name a few. It is not a very tightly-knitted story. Plot holes, loosely constructed interactions. But Enoch put the romance on center stage and made the couple likable. I would have given it 4 stars but I think for a loosely-knitted light hearted romance, Taming Rafe was a better read for me and that book got solid 4 stars from me. So this book has to be 3.5. And in Goodreads system, 3 stars.
