This is a hard review to write.
In regards to the actual storyline, this was a good read. Not great, but better than some I've read. I genuinely liked both the hero and heroine, flawed though they were. The tropes of rake and bluestocking were written in a way that wasn't the "norm" and I found myself rooting for these two to get their act together and give society the finger. The ending was tough to read emotionally, but I think given time they will have a happy relationship.
Unfortunately this book is hindered by absolutely ATROCIOUS editing, and I do not make that charge lightly. Misused words, misspelled words and punctuation thrown around like confetti. One sentence had a comma after every other word and even if the author had intended that to be so, an editor should have caught this and questioned why. I can only assume that this was either A)not edited at all or B)edited by the author or someone who can't spell - necked for "naked" being just one example. Even forcing myself to overlook the plethora of errors, this should never have gone to print. I feel kind of sorry for the author.
A- for storyline. F for editing.
