The Rakehell Of Roth Reading Blog


Before I begin:

Just knew the book dealt with gambling 🎰 

Chapter 1 – Chapter 5

Interesting start with their marriage of convenience, I’m curious where we go from here πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Like 2nd chance romances (normally), so this story has potential.

Behind on the chapters…. After Chapter 3, I’ll go full audiobook for a while πŸ˜‚ Isobel threw down the gaunlet, showing Winter that she’s changed. The beginning may have been untraditional but it is intriguing πŸ€” 

Isobel is visibly different and Roth sees that πŸ˜‹ He knows he’s got ground to cover πŸ˜‚ But he’s still insanely attracted to Isobel 😍 Challenge accepted βœ… 😏 

True though. Just wanted it somewhere safe for later πŸ˜‹

Dancing can be a form of foreplay, as Winter demonstrates 😏 

Chapters 6 – Chapter 10

The bet really amped the hijinxs up between Isobel and Winter 😏 Still need to find out more about what happened to Winter’s mother and sister πŸ€” Winter will be funny when he learns more of WHO Lady Darcy was πŸ˜‚ This will be fun πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Isobel continues to suprise and shock Winter πŸ˜‚ Isobel’s girl friends (Clarissa, Molly, and Violet) are still in the story and I love it πŸ‘πŸ½

Chapters 11 – Chapter 16

A more common occurrence πŸ€” Tie it back to Bridgerton, that show started it all πŸ˜‚ I think from that show, I saw the darker themes within HR, making it applicable to REAL life

The tension between Winter & Isobel πŸ‘πŸ½ Love it when they’re on page together πŸ‘πŸ½

Moment where we see how much Winter cares for Isobel 😍 and I loved seeing it β™₯️ We’ve gotten the impression (falsely) but that’s not true.

Up the stakes by endangering Isobel 😱 I believe it elicits the intended response πŸ€” The auction πŸ‘πŸ½ Not the most original plot device but a good one!

Chapters 17 – 22

Excited to post the quotes (been sitting on them since last night). These πŸ‘†πŸ½ were in 17-22 πŸ€— 

Talking with Clarissa the day after πŸ€” and talk with Astrid πŸ™ŒπŸ½ It suddenly got really exciting (though not completely unexpected). I knew Edmund Cain would re-enter the story at some point πŸ’‘

Chapters 23 – Epilogue

In this instance, Winter is a good big brother πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈ Siblings can be a complicated relationship πŸ€” It’s like an old, good friend.You may disagree and be different, but, at the end of the day, theyy have your back. Whether you’re related by blood or not (found family), they can potentially be your ride-or-die πŸ€— I love girlfriends in stories too, but I especially love seeing biological siblings ❀️

Resolution of the showdown fairly clean 🧽 

Still ❀️ Winter and Isobel!! They’re bold and brave πŸ˜‚ Have sex where they can be seen 😱

β€œWhat would Lady Darcy do” πŸ‘πŸ½ Very poignant!

End of book πŸ“–

Clarissa was a beloved character in The Rakehell Of Roth so I’m glad the epilogue provided more information for her ❀️ May not be a happy ending (yet) but it can be inferred 😁 Loved the inferred. The series characters here, made me want to read the series πŸ€— Glad to see on page, Winter and Isobel and their family ❀️❀️❀️
