Some Like It Scot
When a mad lass in trousers shoots at him, Munro “Bear” MacLawry isn’t sure what impresses him more—the girl’s sure aim or her irresistibly tempting curves. Catriona MacColl has fled to the Highlands with her half-sister to escape an unwanted wedding and wants no part of him, or any man. But he can’t abandon the flame-haired, sharp-tongued wildcat now ...more
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Munro has played the hulking, big intimidating MacLawry brother, even saddled with the nickname "Bear", all his life and it hasn't bothered him until recently. With his family all married off and doting on their offspring, they can't understand why Munro wouldn't want to experience the same happiness, especially his oldest brother and clan ch ...more
The Good : Bear and Cat have some good chemistry at times, and the farther you get into the story, the easier it is to appreciate that chemistry. However...
The Bad : It is extremely slow going at first, and I’ll admit that it became tiring to slog through the dialogue of “kens, havenaes, donnaes, and someaughts.” Once I put that aside, there was also the frustration of the character’s actions not feeling entirely genuine.
Everything in Between : I haven’t read the earlier books, so I didn’t ha ...more
Overall I really enjoyed this book. I thought the very beginning was hilarious. The heroine, Catriona, was awesome and her meeting and initial inter ...more
Typically, going into a fourth book, the reader has a feel for one of the mains - either we've seen him or her enough to have already fallen in love with them, or have enough of their backstory to be interested in their problem. I think that the biggest issue with this book is that we didn't really have anything to go on with the 4th MacLawry brother - other than that he was large wall of highlander muscle.
It's hard to build a story around that alone.
But Eno ...more
This was the final installment of the Scandalous Highlanders Quartet. I read all the previous stories and enjoyed the entire series. However, there was a repetitive theme throughout. Each sibling fell in love with someone other than the arranged betrothed, which led to potential clan wars and an eldest brother Ranulf who acted like a pseudo-villain jerk even though he loved his brothers and sister and had also experienced his own true love and happily ever after in book 1. This got a li ...more
As a stand-alone book:
Because the main barrier between Bear and Cat living happily ever after is the threat of war and his own clan's (i.e. family's) disapproval, the conflict in this book is more about the potential crisis and less of imminent danger. The bulk of the story is the two of them slowly getting to know one another - and trust one another - then ultimately fall ...more
I am in love with the series. This series made me mad for highlanders. But, I have to say this book was a disappointment.;(
I was soo looking forward to Bear's story that maybe my expectations were too high. Anyway I didn't get the satisfaction I usually get reading an Enoch book.
The start of the book was intriguing. I was curious about Cat and Elizabeth, and it was nice to see Ranulf(my favourite in the series!)and Charlotte.
But the plot didn't built at all. It kept deteriorati ...more
Bear, also known as Munro, is the youngest brother of the MacLawry Clan. He is not known for his brains, but rather his brawn. He is enormous at six and a half feet, built with pure muscle. He is the enforcer of the Highland clan and a womanizer. Neve ...more
This is the 4th book in the Scandalous Highlanders series, but I have not read the first 3. This, however, did not take away from my enjoyment of Some Like It Scot.
I am a sucker for a sexy scotsman - seriously, my dream holiday is to go to Scotland, stand in the street and just listen to them talk!
Cat and her sister Elizabeth are on the run from a very unsuitable engagement. Cat has secrets she is hiding even from her sister. She is a ...more
In book four of the Scandalous Highlanders series, Munro MacLawry finally gets his book. Munro has been present in all the books so far so I was very excited to see who the big guy was going to end up. Perhaps out of the whole bunch, Munro is the one who is keen on sowing his oats and remaining single. So it comes as a big surprise to him when he meets someone that holds his attention for more than one night.
When Munro and Catriona first meet, it’s not your typical sweet, combustible moment. ...more
Hellcat Cat is in mama bear mode, ironically, fiercely protecting her younger sister from all-comers while they hide out in an abandoned Abbey (which just happens to be on Bear Munro's land). She's fit for the task too, having been raised a tomboy, but something about Bear allows her to show her softer side...eventually.
I love any hero called Bear, it seems. Or heroes that turn into bears, even. The idea of a big braw man that's as gentle as can be - unless you cross him! - ...more
Maybe 2.5 stars. It wasn't great but wasn't terrible. I didn't particularly love the H/h, and actually disliked most of Bear's family (Ranulf is an ass, plain and simple). Not much happens in the book until about halfway through and even then it's about every other chapter. The ending was very anticlimactic and felt rushed. And if you can't handle when speech is spelled like it sounds, this book is not for you. I found myself ...more

I love a good romance, and Suzanne Enoch is one of my favourites, second only to Julia Quinn and Eloisa James. They’re sexy, they’re fun, and they always leave me feeling like all is right with the world after another happily ever after ending. I had a really fantastic time reading ‘When A Scot Ties the Knot’ by Tessa Dare ...more
Loved the main characters.
Bear and Cat really made this book. They are lovable characters through and through. The magnetism between these two was off the charts.
Cat was raised like a boy so she swore, hunted, and wore trousers. Gotta love a historical tomboy. She is spirited as all get out and very protective of her little sister who is running from a potential bad marriage. She thinks she can control everything but Bear shows her how wrong she is. He inserts himself into ...more
Munro "Bear" MacLawry lives up to his nickname. Always the big and brawny one in the family, he has always been protective of his family. But as each of his siblings marry, Bear finds himself more and more alone. They all have their own families now and Bear is definitely not ready to settle down no matter how hard his brother pushes him. When he finds Catriona MacColl hiding in the woods, he finds someone in need of his protection...or does sh ...more
I really enjoyed this book. I loved Cat and Bear - they are perfect for each other!
Cat is on the run, at first the reader thinks the reason she is hiding is for her sister Elizabeth's benefit, which is true - but it's not the entire story. Bear meets the sisters when he follows Cat back to the ruined Abbey, after she beats him to the deer he had been tracking.
He is immediately intrigued b ...more
Catriona McColl was a stubborn woman, but a good thing for her, Munro MacLawry was a more stubborn man. Cat was raised by a father who wanted a son, teaching all the things he would have taught a son, refusing to even dress her as a female. Munro (Bear to many including his family) is a brawny Scot continuing to wear the kilt when others have adopted trousers. Both are severely misunderstood by others, others only judging the ou ...more
I LOVED this book. It is a wonderful love story about Munro (Bear) MacLawry and his wildcat Catriona MacColl. Munro is a huge man, six feet seven inches, whose family and friends see little of him except his size. They give him little credit for a ...more
Fondamentalmente un libro carino se non fosse che lo scozzese impiegato in quantitá smisurata dall'autrice mi ha quasi impedito di continuare la lettura del libro, specialmente all'inizio, penso poi di essermici abituata. Ora ...more
It took me a little while to get into this book. But once I did I really enjoyed it.
I loved Cat's and Bear's interactions and found myself laughing at their banter. Although Bear's family irritated me at times, I'm interested in reading their stories and will go back and read the other books in this series.

♥5 Things I LOVED about… Munro "Bear"♥
♥He's loyal, loving and not afraid to stand up for what and who he loves.
♥He's SO much smarter than the "lunk" he and his family think him.
♥He's a big strong "Bear" of a man, but also has a heart as cuddly as a cub.
♥He's big, braw and handsome.
Overall, this was a fairly ok read for me. It’s book four in Suzanne Enoch’s Scandalous Highlanders series, but as a new reader, I didn’t feel lost. It was the blurb on the book that d ...more
