The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . A Lady's Code of Misconduct (Rules for the Reckless, #5) . . . This one took me a bit longer than usual to get into and to finish. I think that maybe I went in to this read expecting too much. Crispin had me with his name. Then the dark, broody, good looks, sharp political mind and fierceness stole my heart and turned me into a mushy pile. With further turns of the pages that turned in to new chapters, I found myself in love with Jane and Crispin together.

Jane found herself in a predicament. The only way she saw out of it was to do what needed to be done. She had to make a deal with a devil. But this devil was not the devil she was expecting. He was so much more and then some. Crispin put Jane’s world on a new course. She may have just change the scales in Crispin’s world also. Jane was strong, independent, resourceful, smart, capable, and fierce in her own rights. She was a very worthy female lead. She was able to capture my devotion on her own.

I loved Crispin and Jane. I would like to go back and read the other stories in this series. I have just added a new historical author to my repertoire. Pick up A Lady’s Code of Misconduct read it, enjoy it, fall in love with Crispin and Jane.
