As a reader there is always a great deal to admire about Samantha Grace as an author and this book was yet another example of what I love about such stories. From the opening sentence I fell in love with this story as it is a delightful, entertaining adventure filled with passion, humor and a romantic plot to match.
By far this is my favorite book in the Rival Rogue series. I have liked the previous books in the series, but there was something extra special about Ben and Eve's story that swept me away. I think it was truly the sense of humor that highlighted this love story. It's rare for me to find such laughable nature in a romance novel and yet Grace did apply the right amount to this book without the humor seeming unnatural.
The romance is also worth applauding as well as the chemistry. Both were equally as strong as the other and I felt like Ben and Eve was really meant to be together despite the fact that they had a bit of a rough start.
My only fault with this story is that I don't believe that Johnathan, the second rogue in the book stood a chance against Ben. I valued John's character from the start though I did suspect that he was not the man that he appeared, he did in fact add mystery and new twists to the story. Still, I would have liked to have seen Eve perhaps consider John more than she did so that the title better represented the actual storyline.
Lastly, I want to mention that this book can be read as a standalone novel. There is enough detail from the previous books that a reader will not feel as if something is missing from the new release. Having written such details I would encourage readers to pick up not only The Best of Both Rogues but the other two books from the series as this historical romance worth remembering.
The worst thing Mr. Benjamin Hillary ever did was leave his bride-to-be on their wedding day.
The hardest thing he will ever have to do is watch her marry another man.
After two long years abroad, Ben finds Eve every bit as captivating as she was the first time he saw her, and he vows to set things right.
Lady Eve Thorne has a new man in her life, and Ben is nothing but trouble. She is no longer a starry-eyed young woman, and now that he's back, he can go hang for all she cares. At least that's what she keeps telling herself...
