ARC Review: What a Wallflower Wants by Maya Rodale

I love when one of my favorite authors does not disappoint! Maya Rodale is such a smart writer! She always pushes the limits with her hero and heroine. Although the previous (Bad Boys & Wallflowers #3) were lighter, the material covered in this book is dark and uncomfortable, but it does not in any way take away from the story. I also applaud Ms. Rodale for using her literary voice to discuss the importance of the issues she covered in this story. Her writing is always enjoyable and her characters are always lovable!

In the previous “Bad Boys and Wallflowers” books we saw how her two friends and former wallflowers, Emma and Olivia, find their true loves. Prudence is happy for her friends but realizes that her chances at true love were over many years ago. She finally takes her fate into her own hands, although she has always been happy sitting in the shadows and hiding, she does not want to be a failure. During her adventure her plans go awry and she finds herself completely alone on the roadside of a small town.

When we meet Prudence she is beaten down by life. She has given up all hope, she is jaded by men and by her fate. Enter our hero: John Roark, Viscount Castleton. I just loved John! He was so sweet and caring and fantastic. He gave Prudence insight into herself again and helped her find her own strength.

I highly recommend this fantastic novel. There are many twists and turns. Although the first half of the book is mostly about Prudence the second part is more about discovering who John is and how they become a couple. They both have heavy burdens to carry but both are worthy of a happily-ever-after. The ending does not disappoint, the villains are so vile that there is only satisfaction when they get what they deserve! Bravo Prudence, you were an admirable heroine and bravo Maya Rodale another fantastic read!
