A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean (2012)
This historical romance was recommended to me by a coworker. This post will be rather short because the book was not for me. Have you ever loved half a book? I don’t mean first half, last half. I loved the heroine of this story but loathed the hero from page 1. I firmly believe in taking personal responsibility for our own choices and this guy could not seem to do that. Not on page 1 and not on page 405 either. I kept reading hoping he would do so, but nope. I also kept reading because the heroine was initially awesome. She called him on his BS time and time again. Still, he never owned up to his choices. Eventually she fell in love with him and then I just felt sorry for her. This was one story where the hero needed much, much more self-reflection than the few pages at the end.
