Summary

She’s the woman of his dreams. If only she didn’t despise him...

Everything has always come easily to Caleb James. Everything, that is, but Mary Walker. Her stunning beauty and independent nature enticed him from the start and yet, every romantic overture he made went so horribly awry that she can now barely tolerate him. But that’s all about to change. He has the perfect plan to redeem himself. When she arrives at his family estate, he’ll finally be able to win her heart. Too bad he’s not the only one there with the very same idea...

The last thing Mary wants is time alone with the insufferable Caleb. But since he’s one of her twin’s best friends, declining his invitation is out of the question. She’ll just have to do her best to ignore the charismatic, overly confident rogue. Only, he’s not acting like a rogue this time. Surely the little glimpses she catches of his softer, kinder side are an act...right?

Can Caleb and Mary overcome years’ worth of misunderstandings and missteps - not to mention a persistent rival for Mary’s affections - to find their very own happily ever after? Or, when all is said and done, will the charming rogue be left alone once again? 

This regency era romance is a stand-alone novel and the third book in The Pathways to Romance series. It is rated "G" and features an enemies-to-lovers story line.

Lovely

A lovely, heartwarming romance. Once started I couldn't put this book down. I was rooting for Caleb all the way. He was so adorable in his attempts to impress. A really sweet and lovely romance. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reading audio copy.

The Charming Rogue

This book did not make me smile unlike the previous book and I did not feel any attachment to the two main characters. However, it was a quick listen with a good plot. I would still listen to the authors other books. This one is not as good as the others.

Unable to finish

I couldn’t finish this book (I made it a little over 1/2 way through the book). I had a strong dislike of both Caleb James and Mary Walker. Mary was extremely judgmental of everything that Caleb did and kept assuming the worst of his motives. Caleb behaved and spoke in ways that I found unbecoming. And while Caleb’s behavior was less than admirable, the women in his life kept singing his praises. I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review

The Charming Rogue

Cinnamon Worth is a new author for me and this is the first book of hers that I have had the pleasure of indulging in. Although it’s book 3, it is a stand alone. It’s a super cute regency romance. I loved it ABA couldn’t wait to finish it. I highly recommend this book.

You'll enjoy it best if you've followed the series

As with the previous book in this series, The Charming Rogue starts off right where The Duke and The Damsel ended. In it, we find the story between Mr. Caleb James and Ms. Mary Walker. Of course, as a reader who has been following these books closely, I found it intriguing that after all this time, even though Mr. James has always been talking (and been teased by his friends) for his affections for Ms. Walker, that said character actually didn't correspond his feelings and rather had a firm dislike of him. Thus, I really enjoyed how the author threw these two together, and how that created the most interesting outcomes. I liked Mary's change of heart, and how she (finally) learned, I think, not to judge someone so quickly, or not jump to conclusions. The romance was really sweet, and I really liked the ending. I also liked how through each book in this series, the reader can certainly see the growth of the author's writing. And while this book isn't one of her P&P adaptions, I felt it had certain nuances from it :) Of course, a great part of my enjoyment while reading/listening to this book came from its narrator since she did a great job with all the voices from the different characters (I certainly liked Ms. Walker's and Mr. James'), and how she managed to convey most of the nuances and emotions the characters were feeling. ~ 4.5 stars

Sweet and clean

Sweet, clean regency-era story about learning to appreciate differences and overcome judgemental attitudes--a pretty universal theme for any era. The narrator was not my favorite, unfortunately. I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review

Fun and sweet story

I loved this book even more than the previous one in the series (which was a surprise even for me, since I liked that one so much). This story had me laughing out loud at the choices the characters made. Enemies-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes and I loved how it’s done here. It was a fun time getting to be with this characters for a little while, even when Mary could get FRUSTRATING at times. The narrator did an excellent job! I received a free copy of this book upon request but this is an unbiased review left voluntarily.

Charming

Caleb has helped behind the scenes, as his closest friends have navigated the choppy waters of romance. Meanwhile, he has pined for Mary, the younger sister of one of his friends from university. Though Caleb is able to guide his friends to overcome their obstacles to love, every time he tries to get Mary’s attention, he makes a fool of himself, without even realizing his faux pas. When Mary agrees to spend time at Caleb’s estate to appease her brother, can Caleb prove to her that she was mistaken her assessment of his character and motives?

Misunderstandings abound in this courtship

Story: (4 stars) Just when the misunderstandings are about to be too much, and she is starting to seem downright shrewish, the heroine FINALLY gets a clue. The hero is adorably smitten and his every attempt to impress his hoped-for love, goes awry, even though for the longest time he thinks his Cupid’s arrows have hit their mark. An enjoyable regency story. Narrator (3.5 stars) A true British accent, good expression, Ms. Green reads a bit slowly, but once one adjusts, it’s as if one has stepped back in time to a slower, simpler era. Her sing-song cadence is unique. You will never mistake her voice for anyone else’s!

something was off

I had a hard time getting into this book, I don't know if it was the narration because to me it sounded like the narrator was trying to put on a aristocratic voice with a stuffy nose. I don't mean to sound harsh I just think that is why I couldn't really follow the story. But with that being said, it was a very sweet clean romance with a very sweet ending. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
