Gabriel and Octavia both have claims on the same house. The couple agrees to hunt for the document that confirms Octavia’s ownership. Opposites attract in this romantic battle of wills.
I loved the premise of this book, and the storyline was excellent. I felt the novel was too long. There are times when the characters were too much in their heads and were overthinking the situation. I think the story could have been just a bit shorter; it dragged at the beginning of the second half. This brevity of the storyline would have had better flow and pace.
That being said, I loved the writing style and storyline. Gabriel and Octavia were vivid, outstanding characters. I loved Gabriel’s conservative nature compared to Octavia’s impulsiveness. The couple’s chemistry was spot-on and passionate. The secondary characters were well developed and added depth and color to the story.
Four Weeks Of Scandal is the fifth book in the Hazards Of Dukes series. I’ll be honest; my attention wandered through some of the second half; however, the last couple of chapters were excellent. Also, the pace and speed of a novel are personal preferences. I recommend this book based on the colorful, lovable characters and unique, passionate romance.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
