Publisher Description

USA Today bestseller Lenora Bell returns with a Grease-inspired rom-com about an innocent lady who clashes with a sexy rake, the first book in a brand-new series sure to delight fans of Sarah MacLean, Tessa Dare, and Julia Quinn.

Raised by an overprotective mother, bookish romantic Sandrine Oliver craves adventure, but nothing exciting ever happens in her sleepy seaside village. Until a handsome, mysterious stranger arrives and sweeps her off her feet…only to leave suddenly with no explanation. 

Lord Dane Walker, brother to the Duke of Rydell, is infamous for racing fast carriages and breaking hearts. But when his brother is mortally injured, Dane inherits the responsibilities of the dukedom—duties that come with a dangerous secret which threatens everyone close to him. 

In London, Sandrine is astonished to learn that the charming, honorable man she met at the beach is really a disreputable rake. And the infuriating nobleman acts as though he barely knows her.

Who needs a wild rake? Certainly not Sandrine! With a little help from her friends, she transforms into a glamorous belle. She’s out to make Dane pay…but can she stop her traitorous heart from longing to surrender only to him?

Mixed feelings

Ok, it starts out great. The characters are well written and the plot is attractive. I enjoyed that part very much. Unfortunately, to me, the second half seemed rushed. The dialog lost some of its humanity and the characters moved more towards caricatures which made me lose my connection with them.

Why 4 stars, then? Like I said, the first half is great. The conflict with the mother and controlling vicar really make you side with S. Dane’s “welcome” and subsequent stay in Squalton are believable and logical. The story idea is really well thought out. It’s definitely worth the read, but there’s so much going on in the second half that it’s a rush to the finish.

3.5 Stars!

3.5 Stars! This was a cute book starting out a new series, ‘The Thunderbolt Club’, and it can be read as a standalone. The main characters were Lord Dane/Danny Smith and Miss.Sandrine Oliver. I rather liked both of them and I’m glad Sandrine learned to have a backbone & standup for herself. A few surprising events happen in this, a few twists and turns you don’t see coming. As a ‘Grease’ fan, I approve of the Pink Ladies, the makeover and the numerous other similarities with ‘Grease’, though there are plenty of other details in this book, not relating to ‘Grease’. I really enjoyed this and can’t wait to read more from this series.
*I received this book at no charge & I voluntarily left this review.*

Cringe

I’m sorry but I hated this book enough to write a review. It was cringy from the start. I only finished it because mama didn’t raise no quitter.
