REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale

What a Wallflower Wants
Bad Boys & Wallflowers # 3
By: Maya Rodale
Releasing September 30th, 2014

In the third novel in Maya Rodale’s charming Wallflower series, London’s Least Likely to Be Caught in a Compromising Position finds temptation in a devilishly handsome stranger . . .

Miss Prudence Merryweather Payton has a secret.

Everyone knows that she’s the only graduate from her finishing school to remain unwed on her fourth season-but no one knows why. With her romantic illusions shattered after being compromised against her will, Prudence accepts a proposal even though her betrothed is not exactly a knight in shining armor. When he cowardly pushes her out of their stagecoach to divert a highwayman, she vows never to trust another man again.

John Roark, Viscount Castleton, is nobody’s hero.

He’s a blue-eyed charmer with a mysterious past and ambitious plans for his future-that do not include a wife. When he finds himself stranded at a country inn with a captivating young woman, a delicate dance of seduction ensues. He knows he should keep his distance. And he definitely shouldn’t start falling in love with her.

When Prudence’s dark past comes back to haunt her, John must protect her-even though he risks revealing his own secrets that could destroy his future.

First of all thank you to Tasty Book Tours, Avon Books and Edelweiss for providing us with a review of this book so that we could bring you this review. 
Okay the first thing that I am going to say is that this book deals with a few things that could be triggers for some. Maya Rodale does a great job of bringing these issues up without glorifying them or making it overly graphic. But I do have to say that I really liked the story, the characters and the historical aspect of it. Though I haven't read the previous books in the series it does well as a stand alone, even if I now want to go back and read the previous books, just so I can find out what Olivia and Emma's stories are.
Though Prue's story isn't the best one, and her loss of faith was a little hard for me to read. I found her to be such a strong and willing character. It does take her a little bit to trust John, but that is completely normal for what'd happened to her before. It was nice to see though that by trusting John she learned to love herself once again. She shows wonderful growth and even more strength by the end of the book.

John, man he is like the man we all wish we could have. He was strong, determined and patient. It is great to see how he used his past and knowledge to help Prue get past the hurt. It was wonderful to see him help her open herself up to love, and he has that sweet, soft, gentlemanly quality about him that instantly makes you fall in love with him, even after you find out what his secrets are.

This is definitely a great story to curl up under a snuggie and start reading now that the fall season has begun.

Happy Reading... Adri
