Review: Wicked All Day by Liz Carlyle

41100099From the back of the book:

Miss Zoe Armstrong is beautiful, charming, rich – and utterly unmarriageable. So, while she may be the ton’s most sparkling diamond, her choice of husbands looks more like a list of London’s most unsavory fortune hunters. Since a true-love marriage seems impossible, Zoe has accepted – no, embraced – her role as society’s most incomparable flirt and mischeifmaker…until in one reckless, vulnerable moment, her future is shattered.

Stuart Rowland, the brooding Marquess of Mercer, has been part of Zoe’s extended family since she was a child. As dark and cynical as Zoe is lively, Mercer has always known they would be the worst possible match…until his scapegrace brother Robert does the unthinkable, and winds up betrothed to Zoe. Now, secluded on Mercer’s vast estate to escape a looming scandal and the ton’s prying eyes, Zoe and Mercer may find that a dark obsession has become a tempestuous passion that can no longer be denied…

I loved this book. It worked for me on several levels. Zoe is a fun character, she is full of life and doesn’t take herself too seriously. But there is more to her than just what people can see on the surface. She is much more vulnerable and uncertain than Mercer thinks she is, which leads to them butting heads on more than one occasion. Mercer is Zoe’s opposite. He takes life very seriously and doesn’t believe in acting recklessly. It was fun to read these two falling in love and taking what they wanted without thought to the consequences. This is my favorite Liz Carlyle book so far.

the book girl gives WICKED ALL DAY a 5/5

  1. I’ve never read anything by this author before. I think I read something similar to this by Teresa Medeiros a couple of years ago though Zoe sounds like a really unique character.
