The Rakess

Book: The Rakess

Series: Society of Sirens #1

Author: Scarlett Peckham

She's a Rakess on a quest for women's rights…

Seraphina Arden's passions include equality, amorous affairs, and wild, wine-soaked nights. To raise funds for her cause, she's set to publish explosive memoirs exposing the powerful man who ruined her. Her ideals are her purpose, her friends are her family, and her paramours are forbidden to linger in the morning.

He's not looking for a summer lover…

Adam Anderson is a wholesome, handsome, widowed Scottish architect, with two young children, a business to protect, and an aversion to scandal. He could never, ever afford to fall for Seraphina. But her indecent proposal—one month, no strings, no future—proves too tempting for a man who strains to keep his passions buried with the losses of his past.

But one night changes everything...

What began as a fling soon forces them to confront painful secrets—and yearnings they thought they'd never have again. But when Seraphina discovers Adam's future depends on the man she's about to destroy, she must decide what to protect…her desire for justice, or her heart.-Goodreads

Review: The positives: this is a really unique book. I've never read a romance novel with a female "rake" so that was an interesting twist. The not-so-positive: it was very repetitive and the constant back and forth between Seraphina and Adam was tiring. 

Overall, I liked this and may read the next book when it comes out. 

Grade: 3/5
