After finishing the second book in the Union of the Rakes a few days ago I was ecstatic to be approved for the ARC of this third installment Now I knew that these books were vaguely inspired by 1980s movies but didn t really notice that much in the first two books I haven t seen many 80s movies But the references got a bit too on the nose for me here the whole we were than our simple descriptors bit at the end really pushed it over the edge Plus a character literally saying don t you forget about me The conflict between Duncan s strict rule following and Beatrice s longed for freedom is very compelling is this supposed to be a Ferris Beuller spinoff Both of their positions make perfect sense especially given their backgrounds The climactic failure to communicate was a bit blah but than made up for by the reunion I LOVED the secondary romance of this book I think there was a whole novel worth of story there which I would have eagerly read but it was sprinkled in and shown well in this book as well I generally just really like road trip stories There are so many opportunities for drama for confinement in a carriage for only one bed moments The pacing of their relationship was a bit off for me but overall just super well done I ve been recommending My Fake Rake for probably six months now and I definitely recommend you finish out the series Such fun I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC copy of this book provided via NetGalley
