Review

In New York Times Bestselling Author, Sophie Jordan’s newest addition to The Debutante Files series, ALL THE WAYS TO RUIN A ROGUE we are reunited with Rosalie’s (A GOOD DEBUTANTE’S GUIDE TO RUIN) partner-in-daring, Lady Aurelia and the man she is most-likely-to-be-caught-arguing with, Max.

First friends, then enemies . . .

Lady Aurelia hasn’t always hated Max, Viscount Camden, her brother’s best friend. In fact, as a besotted girl, she thrived under his kind attention— sure that he was the most noble and handsome man in the land. Until her young heart discovered what manner of rogue he really was. Now, though she enjoys nothing more than getting on his last nerve, she can’t deny Max drives her to distraction— even if she tries to pretend otherwise.

Now something more . . .

Max cannot recall a time when Aurelia did not vex him. If she was not his friend’s sister, he would stay far away from the infuriating vixen. Unfortunately, they are always thrown together. At parties and family gatherings . . . she is always there. Mocking him, tossing punch in his face, driving him mad . . . until one night, she goes too far and he retaliates in the only way he can: with a kiss that changes everything.

The secret behind these intriguing characters from the first book and novella is finally revealed as we learn that the war began with a secret crush betrayed and a comically humiliating sketch falling into the wrong hands.

It was such a delight that I had to read it TWICE!

Even if you have not read the first two stories in this series, (which you should) you will feel perfectly comfortable falling into the madcap sphere of Max and Aurelia’s battle-royale, where the bickering, angst and sometimes completely hilarious antics of this couple are nothing more than cleverly disguised romantic foreplay.

From page one to the last, you will be enchanted and compelled by the love/hate relationship that propels this couple to the tippy-top of my personal “Favorite Couples” list and I dare you to finish it without a smile on your face.

It was such a delight that I had to read it TWICE!
