How to Ravish a Rake - Vicky Dreiling How To Ravish A Rake is the third book in Dreiling’s How To series. I haven’t read the other books in the series so I didn’t have any expectations going into this. While I enjoyed Dreiling’s writing, I didn’t like this book as much as I was hoping. The pacing for the first half of the book felt really slow. I almost gave up at one point but kept going and the story finally picked up. I also got a bit tired of Amy’s inner monologue. She kept worrying about the same things over and over again. Will played the part of a rake well. He was charming and flirtatious and I could see why Amy would be attracted to him. I liked that Amy saw through his schemes and didn’t fall all over him like most women did. The banter between the two was good though I would have like more of it. I did enjoy watching Amy and Will get to know each other during their wedding wager. And there was definitely some chemistry between the two. So while I didn’t love this book, Dreiling is doing something right because I was totally invested in the relationship by the end of the book. I did feel that the story ended rather abruptly though. I really wish there had been an epilogue. This book shows promise and, given the chance, I would read another book in the series. Aunt Hester is particularly hilarious and I would love to see more of her. *An e-ARC of this book was provided free of charge by NetGalley.com.
