      WellI mean, of course I like it. But the question iswill you? Let me help you decide. If you enjoy the following things, you might like Sophie & King's story: * Romancing the Stone (or *any* enemies-to-lovers story)* Roadtrip romances* Men who don't know what's hit them* US Weekly, People Magazine, Defamer, or that sidebar of "news" on your Facebook page* Any of the following: Beyonce, the Kardashians or the Middleton Sisters* The idea of wildly-sexy afternoons in hedge-mazes* Heroes who end [...]

      Warning: There will be spoilers. And cursing. Lots of it.I'm a very unforgiving reader. My GR friends know this. I don't know about you, but I have a very low tolerance for assholes who can't respect and trust the heroine. I've always adhered to the belief that if you can't tolerate a man's bullshit in real life, you shouldn't tolerate it in fiction.And that's why I hate King. I hate him so much I want to go all Wednesday Addams on him.King, our "hero" (scoffs), may not be the worst asshole I've [...]

      Full review now postedSarah MacLean is one of the few authors whose stories will, without fail, take me on a wild ride of emotions, so it came as no surprise to me that this first in her new Scandal and Scoundrel series did just that. The Rogue Not Taken had me laughing, crying, and clenching my hands in fists of outrage because Sophia and her sisters grabbed hold of my heart from the start and never let go. And when you add a roguish scoundrel like King to the mix, things become (fanning myself [...]

      Aristocrats be damnedunless you fall in love with one.In The Rogue Not Taken we see how awful the aristocrats acted. With their belief that they are better than others and the lazy way they live their lives, they do not sound nice. I do love reading historical romance, but get very frustrated with them too. In this case my eye was twitching when a Duke had the power to ruin a whole family because his pride was hurt. Obviously, these things happen in modern times tooybe not with a Duke, but in th [...]

      3.3 starsI ended up liking this one way more than I thought I would, but the last twenty percent dropped my rating from a 3.7 stars (4 stars) to a 3.3 stars (3 stars). Because the truth was that women in Britain in 1833 did not have options. They had the path upon which they tread. Upon which they were forced to tread. Upon which they were made to feel grateful they were forced to tread. I flew through the first 40%, loving the snark and back and forth between Sophie and King. Did King's comment [...]

      what should have happened: hero dies for being an asshole. heroine marries someone more deserving. the end!!!

    • Natalie says:

      I'm giving this 2.5 stars because I loved Sophie, I enjoyed some of the road trip rompy stuff, it was funny in parts.But I can't give it any more because King was a raging asshole. He hurt Sophie so much, he was so cruel and callous with his easy words, and every time he apologized, he cut her two new wounds. He was cruel to her about her appearance, her personality, her family, her dreams, her life, her reputation, everything. And he never groveled or apologized sufficiently imo, although I don [...]

      I have read worse books than The Rogue Not Taken, books I DNF'ed, books that made me laugh because they were so ridiculous. Which is why it's taken me a couple of days to make up my mind about its rating. All things considered, though, I cannot rate this higher than I have. There were too many factors that made this book an unpleasant read.Let me start with the plot. Road romance, adventures, bookish heroine, a rake/rogue/scoundrel. All this reminded me of A Week to Be Wicked. It was just not an [...]

      *Review up*Finally! I made it. Whew.I feel like this took me a year to finish. I think I'm falling out of love with MacLean's writing. Three books back to back that haven't worked is one too many for me.This was way too melodramatic for me all around. The plot, the ever present overblown 'shameful secret’ trope, the hero, the heroine, the writing. It’s a 416 page book and it had no reason to be IMO. A good 100 pages could have easily been cut out. I mean I got to the half-way mark which felt [...]

      4.5¡Por fin! La primera GRAN LECTURA del año. Otro maravilloso libro de Sarah MacLean. Con ella nunca me equivoco y siempre es un gustazo leer uno de sus libros porque son ligeros, super-entretenidos, llenos de romance, aventura y unos protagonistas inteligentes y maravillosos. Las escenas y los diálogos son auténticos y enamoran a la vez que entretienen.La historia de Sophie y King me ha encantado. Hay mucha aventura, hay amor, hay pasiónKing y Sophie son maravillosos.Se lee en un suspiro [...]

    • Damaris *the perpetual dreamer* says:

      It's official. I'm giving up on Sarah MacLean. This book just re-affirmed my decision. The hero was a bloody assh*le, and I can't tolerate him.

    • Karen says:

      Loved this one!!!

    • Arshia says:

      There were times when I actually liked this book and then there were times I absolutely loathed it. King and Sophie had wonderful chemistry when he wasn't being an ass (but those times were very few.) I connected with Sophie right away her love of books, her awkwardness, not really planning her escape :D However, what I absolutely hated was that she became a shell of herself the longer she stayed with King. She kept compromising her being so he would want her and the selfish ass never did anythi [...]

    • Jaclyn says:

      I’ve been a big fan of Sarah MacLean’s historical romances ever since picking up Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake just when I was finishing school and getting back into the genre fiction game. Before reading her latest, I would have told you that Nine Rules is my favourite MacLean book, closely followed by A Rogue By Any Other Name. In my opinion, MacLean has out done herself with The Rogue Not Taken, it is, hands down, my new favourite. Not only is this book fun, but it also offers [...]

      I've given this a B+ at AAR, so 4.5 starsIn The Rogue Not Taken, the first in a new series from Sarah MacLean, she introduces us to the five Talbot sisters, daughters of a recently ennobled Earl who made his fortune in trade. Needless to say, given their origins, the family is tolerated rather than accepted by the ton, but instead of cowering in the face of society’s displeasure, the young ladies thumb their noses at convention, behaving in a manner which regularly sees their names gracing the [...]

      3.5en su conjunto no está mal y es muy entretenidoHe visto mucho cliché, pero lo cierto es que llega un punto en que lo difícil es no encontrarlo Ella la típica joven inglesa cuya familia plebeya de pronto (y eso no me ha convencido nada) se convierte en noble. Patito feo pero cisne al mismo tiempo depende de quien la mireEl el noble desencandado (con reputación de libertino) - aquí no quiero desvelar pero resulta de lo más previsible-el viaje está muy bien, situaciones que no te crees p [...]

      Pure garbage. Hero not worth it.

    • Ally says:

      Making this one quick (as if my other reviews are not =). I actually liked this book. I mean yes, there were parts of it where I was all, COME THE HELL ON, OVER IT! The hero of this story was a broken records more than like 800 times. BUT, despite all of that, it was an enjoyable listen. I hazard a guess, had I read this rather than listened, it would have found itself plastered against the wall. Great narrator, evil hero, fun heroine (stoopid at times), totally not believable. What more can I a [...]

    • Annie says:

      2-2.5Sophie was the only shining light in this book. King was downright cruel and unapologetic.The ending definitely dragged as well, though the epilogue was cute.

    • Lady Gabriella of Awesomeness says:

      4Almost a perfect score ! Stars You know to be honest,I wish she had made him grovel a bit more there in the end.After everything she's been throughNo ! after everything they had been through I can't believe he lost his faith in her so quickly and so effortlessly as if he hadn't know her character before that moment :( And also there the fact that the author re-wrote the exact same misunderstanding between the couple of Book 3 (which I gave a five star ) because it fit in with the story and the [...]

    • Katie Michaels says:

      Rakes and rogues are generally not my favorite types of heroes, but Sarah MacLean is one of those authors where I know I’m going to like the book without even having to read the blurb. And again here, she doesn’t disappoint. King didn’t make me fall in love at first sight, but there is more to him than meets the eye. He’s not simply the debaucher his reputation implies. But it takes a special woman to get to the truth of him.Sophie comes from new money and her family’s nobility is just [...]

      Cuando eres una dama y te encuentras en mitad de la noche, montada en la parte trasera del carruaje de un marqués de mala reputación, vestida como un lacayo, calzada con zapatillas de baile y camino del norte de Inglaterra sabes que estás en problemas. Esta es la situación en la que la tranquila y hasta ahora discreta Sophie Talbot se encuentra la noche de la fiesta de los Liverpool. Y este es el inicio de la alocada y divertida aventura en la que nos embarca Sarah MacLean en esta novela que [...]

    • Amanda says:

      It's not often I stay up until 1:45 a.m. reading, but when I do, there's a good chance it's because of Sarah MacLean.A Sarah MacLean book kicked off the Great Historical Romance Bender, so it should come as no surprise that I loved The Rogue Not Taken as much as I did. Or that I'm now waiting for the next in the series to be published. ( says end of August!) Or that The Rogue Not Taken will likely be a book I reread.Maybe even more than once.Sophie, youngest of five, isn't like the rest of her s [...]

    • Mei says:

      4,5 Stars!I love how Ms. MacLean writes! The way of innser questions and very dry answers is really great!The story is nothing new, but the heroine is excellent! I just loved her and her almost too level-headed way to looking at herself! Just great!Where everybody, even her family, considers her nonfun, boring, not beautiful and it goes on so much that she herself starts to believe it. But she's not depressed by that realization. At the beginning there's a really great scene that make her become [...]

    • Isa says:

      Bueno, el final ha sido como lo imaginaba y me ha parecido bastante flojo.Sin embargo, esta ha sido una novela llena de tópicos que no molestan porque la lectura resulta fluída.Buenos protagonistas y diálogos ágiles y chispeantes, aunque quizá muchos más en la primera parte que en la segunda mitad. No soy amante de las novelas de aventuras, pero esta me ha entretenido bastante. También era más que obvio qué estaba haciendo King con las supuestas amantes, por lo que el misterio me sobrab [...]
