The Hellion (Wicked Wallflowers #1) Reviews
I haven't read Christi Caldwell in years so when I had the chance to win an advance copy of her latest book The Hellion, I grabbed it right away. It did not disappoint. Christi is a fantastic writer and I like that her characters are not the typical members of the ton. Hate-to-love is one of my most favorite tropes and The Hellion delivered in slowly turning the antipathy between Adair and Cleo into reluctant attraction, respect, and finally love.
Cleopatra and Adair are well-defined characters ...more
The Hellion by Christi Caldwell is the first in the Wicked Wallflowers series. Christi has a wonderful way of telling a story. This book was fantastic. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.
This book has fires, paternity, miss trust, family feuding, romance, acceptance and much more. All things to find in a Regency Romance. I highly recommend this book.
I was so excited to get to read my first Christi Caldwell book and after reading the blurb I thought that this would be just up my street but unfortunately for me this was nothing like I was expecting. I really had high hopes for this book but what I found was that it was very hard and slow to get into with too many characters in the first few chapters that caused me a lot of confusion. As this is the first in a series it felt like that I was missing out on something and that I'd started in the ...more
I knew I would love this book when I saw it on Netgally. And I was so right! This book is the beginning of an offshoot series from Christi Caldwell’s Sinful Brides series.
Our hero has clawed his way up from the streets of London with his ‘brothers.’ Although not related by blood they worked together to become successful. Now all of his brothers have married into the aristocracy and Adair just wants to keep running his gaming hell. But then the fire happened. Now our hero is forced to help the ...more
I received this ARC from NetGalley and voluntarily chose to write a review.
This is the first book in a series, but it didn't feel like it. It felt as if I was reading a book in the middle of a series. I'll confess it was hard to orient myself because there are so many characters and there's so much history between the two rival families. I was lost in the beginning and it took me a while to get a strong grasp on who was who. Even after I was able to clearly put together the families and the hu ...more
I normally like this author and I had high hopes but this book was all over the place, I mean all over. There were just to many character and to much chaos that I totally lost interest..I could not go on..sorry folks just didn't do it for me..
I want to start this review by stating that I requested this book because it was touted as the first book in a new series. I would disagree - I did not read the previous Sinful Brides series, but every single person in this book (save one very minor character) is a character from that series - the hero in this book is a "brother" to the previous series heroes and the heroine is the "sister" to the villain in that series. I am all about authors bringing back previous characters for cameos - but t ...more
A New Series Begins
Christi Caldwell can tell a story like no other. As her Regency universe expands upon itself, she has taken her readers from the glittering world of the Ton with its incessant concern with propriety and scandal to Upper Ten Thousand house parties where ruin lurks in the next hallway to the agonies of wounded warriors returning home to deal with shattered bodies and shattered minds. But this multifaceted author does not stop there, no, Caldwell has ventured to take us on an ima ...more
