Cute novella. I liked Sophie and Rowan. I have a hard time with novellas, I find things to be rushed. This one wasn’t too bad. So my only real complaint is that I wish it had been longer. That would have aloud the MC’s more time to fall in love and for them to be more fleshed out and have more character growth. I feel this is a flaw with the format rather than the author.

This is a lovely addition to the Scandal Sheet series – it is well written and the characters are very likable.

Sophie is rich, very rich, and sees no reason she should marry. She saw enough of marriage and what it did to a woman before her parents died and she wants no part of it. So, she’s become known as Lady No – because she always says no to any invitation – dancing, carriage rides in the park, walks in the garden – just ever

The first problem was that the hero and heroine were hardly together. They didn't share the page for the first 29%, which is a lon

This was an engaging read. I did like the main characters of Roman and Sophie. Given Sophie’s past experience with her parents, it was no wonder she was sceptical of the members of society. Rowan had loved his father but now was left with his two half brothers, who were jealous and vindictive. I loved the way Rowan expressed his feelings for Sophie. Although this is a short read, it was a very satisfying read, although I would have liked an epilogue. I received a copy and have voluntarily review ...more

Honestly, this book felt a little too rushed for me to get really invested in the relationship between Sophie and Rowan but I still liked this book very much. I liked the relationship between Sophie and her aunt. Her aunt wasn’t pressuring her and was just giving her the nudge she needed. I liked the concept of the book of someone saying yes and giving everything a try even if she is miserable in doing so, most of the time. I admire her for taking the risks she does. There were sweet moments bet ...more

Rowan and Sophie came as a wonderful surprise when I was least expecting it. A small bundle of joy … literally! As the rest of the novellas in this series, the story is based on a ‘scandal’ and before you know it, we have reached our HEA. Readers usually have an issue of character development with a novella wherein one feels the need for more content to really etch out a character completely.
Jess Michaels seems to have no problem in this series of novellas, as she plots the story and the charac

Lady Sophie has been saying NO to dances, walks in the park and just about anything a young man might ask her to do since her coming out nearly four years ago. She has reasons to do so that eventually come out later in the novella but when challenged to start saying YES she surprises herself by hoping she might find the right man to marry – a man who will let her retain her independence and quirks and actually love her.

Lady No Says Yes by Jess Michaels is book Three in The Scandal Sheet Series. This is the story of Sophie and Rowan. I have read the previous books and feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.

This is my second read by Mrs Jess Michaels, an other novella.
It has a good plot, just because of the shortness of the story, it lacked some depth.
At first I did not understood why Sophie was so dead set against marriage, it was then explained but why live half a life?
As for Rowan, he has a reputation as a rake, whom he is not really, still I did not really figured out why being a rake would help him sell his work, gaining entries to the best entertainments, yes but how selling anonymously his p

In my very personal opinion, Jess' books are too short. Yeah, I am honest with you, there should be more about those who fall in love. This one is about a young woman who declined all invitations, dancing with suitors etc. - that's why she became "Lady No". Now her aunt asks her to change her behaviour and to give all the young men, the ton a chance, so she won't stay alone forever.

It's a cute and quick story and from the title, we already know that there will be a happy ending without too many

Sophie is known in Society as Lady No because she always refuses the advances of every suitor. She makes a bet with her Aunt and must say yes for one season. Rowan learns why Sophie has had a sudden change of heart and plans to use it to his advantage. This is was a good read with great chemistry and plenty of drama and suspense. I liked the characters as well as the story. Just wish it had been longer. A good read.

This is a shorter novel and very enjoyable. Lady No is determined to never fall in love or marry due to past family problems, and Lord Sinclair thinks he will never marry due to his life circumstances. But love will not be denied. Another great read from Ms Michaels - her books are an automatic must read.

I am a sucker for these little quickies by Jess! I have enjoyed the previous two in the series and this one did not disappoint. It's just long enough to fall in love with the characters and enjoy some sexy scenes. It is a nice Jess Michaels fix while waiting for her next full length!

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

FINAL DECISION: This is a nice story, but I wanted more time with the characters to more fully develop their relationship.

I like big books and I cannot lie. However, sometimes I just crave a quick, engaging read. I have found that Jess Michaels pens sweet, steamy and heartfelt novellas that totally fit the bill. I have quickly become a very big fan of hers. I especially enjoy The Scandal Sheet series.

Her lovely moniker of Lady No was bestowed upon her by the Scandal Sheet without realizing that Sophie's negative take on life has a direct reflection on the poor marriage she witness between her fortune hunting father and adoring mother. Now her Aunt has challenged her to spend one season saying YES and see what life sends her way.

The Scandal Sheet "All in Society are well aware of the famous-or is it infamous?-Lady No. The lady seems determined to enter into spinsterhood." Her aunt Louisa read out loud and Lady Sophie could not help but laugh. But her aunt told her it was about her!

Lady No Says Yes is book three in the Scandal Sheets series by Jess Michaels. This book reminded me of a memoir I read where the woman said yes to every man who asked her out for a year. Lady Sophie is an heiress that has a thirst for adventure, but not so much love, which has earned her the nickname ‘Lady No’. Her aunt Louisa challenges her to say yes, within reason, to every man who asks her do something. Rowan Sinclair is an artist and third son, and h
