    I had read the previous book in this series and loved it and couldn't wait to get my greedy hands on this one. I love love LOVED Ainsley and Reed. They're both so stubborn and it made for the best banter and button pushing. I especially loved seeing both of their crunchy exteriors reveal just how soft and marshmallow-y they were. Oh, and don't get me started on their chemistry. I could have died from the delicious UST. Plot wise, it was a good am...

    This enemies to lovers story was a fun read! I’m always a sucker for a hero and Reed fit the bill to a T! Ainsley was a hot mess, but I still liked her-even when she was prickly as a cactus.

    I received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.The Rogue to Ruin is the final book in Vivienne Lorret's Misadventures in Matchmaking trilogy. The eldest Bourne sister finds her HEA with her annoying neighbour, Reed Sterling, a gambling hell owner. This book can definitely be read as a standalone, but if you're familiar with this series, then you've probably been waiting for Ainsley and Reed's book just like I have. Ainsley and ...

    I discovered Mrs Vivienne Lorret work with the second book in this series. And since I have read some more as I loved her style and humour.I confess I do not remember a lot about Ainsley from the previous book, Briar’s story, just she had often raw arguments with their neighbor Reed Sterling and she was rather blunt and had not a romantic bone in her.My first thoughts were confirmed as she appears as being haughty and having preconceptions abou...

Ainsley and Reed have such chemistry, their banter is witty and every time Reed’s in close proximity you can almost see the goosebumps that appear on Ainsley. She’s determined to run Reed and his gaming hell out of her neighbourhood, for the good of the Bourne Matchmaking business. This results in some funny antics that don’t faze Reed one bit,...

    This sweet historical romance had it all...A goodhearted rivalry!A cranky cat!A strong man that is actually soft and gets taken down by a teapot!There was a proper villain that was foiled by our rogue Reed, but Ainsley had a strength of her own. I loved their relationship and seeing some familiar characters. Lorret delivers another fun read with a lot of heart.

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. The Rogue to Ruin by Vivienne Lorret is the third book in her The Misadventures in Matchmaking Series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I enjoyed the other two books and recommend reading them as well. The story is a very well done tale of enemies to lovers with an excellent cast of eccentric supporting characters, a ragged old tomcat who ends up being a b...

    We finally get the oldest Bourne sister’s story and this was the best one in the series. The little war Ainsley starts with gaming hell owner across from her matrimonial office was a delight to read. Reed never really retaliated against her, but was there for her whenever she needed. I loved the banter between the two & their chemistry is off-the charts! The author did an amazing job, with little scenes full of sweet tender moments that bring t...

    The Rogue to Ruin is the third in the Misadventures in Matchmaking series. A wonderful series about three sisters who run a matchmaking business. Ainsley Bourne has been at war with the owner of the gaming hell across the street, Reed Sterling, since opening the family business. These two are happiest when they are arguing and annoying each other, at least until the first kiss, when other pursuits take the lead. Ms Lorret has such a smooth writin...

    3.5 StarsThis is the first book I've read by Vivienne Lorret and I will most definitely read more. The only thing that kept from giving this book a 4 star rating was the heroine. She got on my nerves here and there. The hero saved this book for me.

    Really enjoyed this with the sole exception of the inevitable part where things fall apart and he does something wrong and they're no longer speaking. It just didn't feel quite real to me. I couldn't reconcile Reed being both so observant and understanding and then so dense in this one particular area. Other than that, I loved it.

    Pub date: Jul 2019 4.5 Yay! Enemies-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes and Ms Lorret does it well in this wonderful historical romance. Ainsley Bourne, the matchmaker, and Reed Sterling, the gaming house owner across the street, have been sparring for years (and through two books of her sister's romances) and finally go toe to toe. I loved the prickly/flirty dialogue and the surprise of Reed's mum was excellent. Great end to this series of th...

    I had SO much fun reading this story! I immediately downloaded the first two in the series because I just HAVE to know about her sisters! *eeeppp*The perfect sparring between these two with an undercurrent of teasing and flirting! And then the #feels started to pour out of the pages! They both have a bit of past that doesn’t lend well to trusting others and it just so dreamy the way they both lean on each other to break thru the barrier and ta...
