The Suffragette Scandal (The Brothers Sinister #4) by Courtney Milan


The Suffragette Scandal (The Brothers Sinister Book 4)

Synopsis:

An idealistic suffragette...

Miss Frederica "Free" Marshall has put her heart and soul into her newspaper, known for its outspoken support of women's rights. Naturally, her enemies are intent on destroying her business and silencing her for good. Free refuses to be at the end of her rope...but she needs more rope, and she needs it now.

...a jaded scoundrel...

Edward Clark's aristocratic family abandoned him to die in a war-torn land, so he survived the only way he could: by becoming a rogue and a first-class forger. When the same family that left him for dead vows to ruin Miss Marshall, he offers his help. So what if he has to lie to her? She's only a pawn to use in his revenge.

...and a scandal seven years in the making.

But the irrepressible Miss Marshall soon enchants Edward. By the time he realizes that his cynical heart is hers, it's too late. The only way to thwart her enemies is to reveal his scandalous past...and once the woman he loves realizes how much he's lied to her, he'll lose her forever.

Review:

Oh how I loved The Suffragette Scandal! This book is sooo much fun, just like the other books in the series. Going in I wasn't really sure if I would enjoy it as much as some of the pervious books, wasn't sure if I would like Free as much, but oh how I loved both her and Edward. They are amazing together! Their conversations are just so witty and fun! This was another book that I read with a huge smile on my face. There are parts that are so like me, so like something I would say, that I just loved it!

Free and Edward have risen to one of my favorite book couples ever. I cannot express adequately enough how amazing this book was. How fun and silly and smart and just amazing it is. From the first moment Edward saw Free he was drawn to her. He didn't know why, or what was to come, but he just was drawn in. He never thought anything would come of it, he doesn't think himself a good person, too much darkness in him, and he is only in town to seek some revenge against his family members who abandoned him. In order to do so he has to convince Free to work with him, something he at first is going to be easy to do. After all he has no problem with using whatever he needs to to convince her, including blackmail. Or should I say Huzzah! Blackmail! (Read the book - you will understand!).

Free is super smart. Smarter and stronger than Edward ever imagined. She has started a paper by women, for women, about women. She definitely doesn't need a man in her life, especially one that will try and keep her down. At first she thinks Edward is just a normal guy thinking like most men that women are weak and not deserving of the same rights. Only she quickly finds out he is not. He fully supports her causes, he just is so beaten down by his life thus far he doesn't think she will be able to do anything to enact change. When Free beats him at his own game, outwits him, she expects him to be angry. Only he is not. He loves that about Free. He loves that she can challenge him, she can stand up to him, she can beat him. Oh their conversations were so much fun! The conversations on exclamation marks alone were amazing, and popped up throughout. I loved it!

I loved that Free and Edward grew closer, but Free was strong enough and smart enough to know that Edward had some things to work out. They both have challenges they need to overcome to be together, ways of thinking and figuring out how to both be happy with their situations they find themselves in. Though it could have been a darker book, there are plenty of darker moments or things that happen, it was just fun! My favorite part was the bit about the puppy cannon. Seriously that is something I would have said! Read this book. Seriously, it is amazing. Beyond amazing. So much fun!
