    I know we're not supposed to play favorites. I know I'm supposed to love all my books equally. But I really really love this one, you guys. It's so close to my heart. An incomplete list of the reasons why: * Hattie: A smart, savvy, curvy girl with a talent for knots, who re...

    This might now be my favorite of Sarah MacLean's books, and that's saying a lot, since I absolutely adore her books. It's so well-written, so complete, such an altogether consuming story that it is absolutely and entirely satisfying. Swoon. ...

    One of the worst Sarah Maclean novels I?ve read. She?s getting pretty lazy with her plots and her prose. I think the sentence, ?she cut him a look? appears no fewer than 100 times. Every once in awhile she dresses it up, like: ?She cut him an irritated look.? Her sentenc...

    2.5 stars - Historical Romance This was just an okay read for me. I had some of the same issues with it that I had with the first book in the series, Wicked and the Wallflower. *Overused historical romance tropes *Repetitive *Slow pacing *Self-perpetuated and manufactured dra...

    Oh the horror, she was 29! Not even a spinster anymore, just forgotten. But Hattie did not care, she wanted to live her own life and make her own rules. You go Hattie! Hattie wants to rid herself of her virginity and the road she aims to take, well her rules. She also wants to take ...

    I official own three copies of Brazen and the Beast and sorry not sorry I'm keeping them all. I re-read my favorite book of 2019 via audio book, and let me tell you a grunting hero is a glorious thing to hear. Hattie and Whit are my ride or die couple and I'll be re-reading their story...

    'Brazen and the Beast' is the second book in Sarah MacLean's new historical romance series, 'The Bareknuckle Bastards'. I became OBSESSED with this new his-rom from MacLean, that is largely set in the "underworld" of London in Covent Garden, and is a bit of an upstairs/downstairs fo...

    5 ++++ stars I could write a long, detailed review. But I could also limit myself to just one word: perfect! This story is everything. I haven't read a book that fast in a long time. All the love and stars for Whit and Hattie ? ...

    I gave Brazen and the Beast a B at All About Romance. Brazen and the Beast is vintage Sarah MacLean. Which is, for me, a good thing. I was completely absorbed in the romance, which is perfectly paced and gets off to a good start, but unfortunately, not everything else is as good and...

    First Date: Lady Henrietta Sedley declares her twenty-ninth year the ?Year of Hattie,? and she has plans! But first, to get rid of her V-card. She has the night booked at a discreet club exclusively for women but things get complicated when she finds a man tied up in her carriag...

    I received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. What a colossal waste of time. I fear Brazen and the Beast marks the conclusion of my relationship with Sarah MacLean. It will take a LOT for me to ever read a new Sarah MacLean release. The standard for his...

    I liked both Hattie and Whit! I liked them a lot! What I didn't mind for was the way their inner thoughts were written: it seemed to me that there was a lot of repetition! It reminded me of Kerrigan Byrne style of writing: exaggerated! I found the whole story rather rushed, the endin...

    4.5 solid stars I have to admit I really liked Hattie. I can see how she could possibly come across as "too much" or not exactly accurate of the time but I refuse to believe every woman falls into one category for the time period. And that's the point of this book. The book was ente...

    Wicked and the Wallflower was one of my top books of 2018, and I was basically screaming when I got approved for Brazen. I love love loved Hattie and Beast. They?re both so smart and so opinionated and the bickering was the best. I adored their arguing and reading how their relati...

    Well, that was better than the first book (I still cringe at the mention of her terrible name, Felicity Faircloth) but it wasn?t as good as I hoped either. Hattie was a very sympathetic character up until (view spoiler)[ she accepted some bullshit behavior on Whit?s part (hide spoi...

    I really, really wish I didn?t struggle with this series like I do. Sarah MacLean is one of my favorite historical romance authors (she gave us the Rules of Scoundrels series, which I worship), but the Bareknuckle Bastards series just doesn?t seem to be working for me. It?s not B...

    I think SM and I are done. We are parting ways. This is a modern, with a push towards inserting political and culture view points, dressed as a historical romance (this stuff is not historically accurate or believable for the time period). In my humble opinion. And I found the di...

    ?I am the heroine of my own play, sir.? I?m an avid reader of historical romances, forever drawn to a world where dashing rogues fall head over heels in love with intrepid damsels, but few authors continue to amaze me with the way they engage so purposefully with female iden...

    Another entry in this wonderful series set in mid-19th century London, taking a rose-coloured glasses look at the criminal scene of Covent Garden and how it interacts with the rest of London society. This is Beast's book as he comes into contact with an aspiring businesswoman Lady Henr...

    Brazen and the Beast was a solid historical romance with some pacing issues and other small problems that just knocked it down from "great" to "good." I think I liked Brazen and the Beast slightly less than Wicked and the Wallflower, which seems to be a bit against the grain from m...

    ****4.5 STARS**** What do you get when you cross a tall, dark, handsome and wealthy king of the underworld with a no nonsense and spirited heroine....one hell of a novel!!! This has to be my favorite book this year. It had everything including the alpha anti-hero. Saviour Whitti...

    DNF @ 41% With chunks of Wicked and the Wallflower rehashed, multiple words (growl/growls/growled, grunt/grunts/grunted, mmm, Christ) used excessively, a growing hatred of Whit, plus what felt (to me) like box ticking inclusivitiy regarding a secondary character... I can't--and don'...

    I received an advance copy of this title from the publisher via Edelweiss. All comments/opinions are my own. Ooooh this book. This poor poor book. Where does one even begin... Let?s just jump right to it and state I am not a fan. If you?ve read the first book in this series,...

    Flowery Prose and Plot Holes Abound So I consider myself a fan of Sarah MacLean?s work; I?ve read all her books and I await each new release with breathless anticipation. Which is why it was strange how underwhelming this book was. There?s a common misconception that the ro...

    I usually love Sarah Maclean. I have read every single book she ever wrote. I can't finish this one. It's awful. It's crushed under the weight of the overused tropes and menagerie of unicorns. Having a forward thinking heroine is okay. Having her be fat and ugly but somehow attract ...

    2.5 stars rounded up to 3. Overall? I'm disappointed. I used to enjoy Sarah MacLean's writing a lot. But some of the reappearing themes in her recent stuff are starting to grate me, big time. First of all, plot-wise, this book seems to be almost an exact copy of the first i...

    Obviously, I host Fated Mates with Sarah, so I'm hardly an impartial reader. BUT. BUT. BUT. This book is fucking great. I loved everything about it, especially Hattie. Her determination to prove herself worthy of inheriting her father's company even though she's a woman is such a g...

    4 1/2 opposites attract sizzingly stars Despite what the title suggests, this isn't really a beauty and the beast retelling -- it's more about what beauty means when viewed through other's lens(es). In this story, the person who is considered by most to be empirically beautiful is a...

    This was not a winner for me. I really can't stand weight and being plus-sized as a plot driver of conflict. Can we please get a plus-size heroine that has body confidence and simply IS plus-sized without it being a conflict? The writing also felt verbose to me and the plot convoluted....
