4 stars-- The Rogue Is Back in Town (The Wayward Wallflowers #3) by Anna Bennett

I had such a lovely time with The Rogue is Back in Town--A sticky situation, a frazzled heroine and a rogue that simply will not go away.

The Gist: Sam's brother has tasked him with evicting a family from one of his properties. Not something Sam's all that keen on doing but it's that or be cut off completely. Financially and from the only family he has left. So off he goes. A simple task, really. Except the young woman in question? She refuses to leave. So Sam? He moves in with her. Mmhm.

Sam and Juliette were entertaining. I enjoyed watching them deal with each other as he moved in and got comfy trying to wait her out. As they tried to figure a way around Nigel's manipulations and find proof that her eccentric uncle really owned the property. As they became friends and allies and worked their way into each other's hearts. They were cute together. There's a little heat and a little frustration. And it was just a dang good time.

Her "crazy" uncle lives with her and I loved his parts, too. He is a bit of a handful but I thought it was so sweet how both she and Sam doted on him and cared about him. They're good hearts, they are.

I did find the final reveal a bit predictable-- honestly it was the first thing I would have done-- but it did make for a dramatic bit of reading and that's still pretty entertaining.

All in all, The Rogue is Back in Town left me charmed once again. Bennett always delights. And those covers!

Equal parts scoundrel and seducer, he’s returned to London determined to mend the rift with his older brother. All Sam must do is take possession of a tumbledown town house. A seemingly simple task, except the house is occupied—by an infuriating, whip-smart beauty who refuses to do his bidding.

Miss Juliette Lacey’s wallflower days are over. She has a plan to turn her eccentric family into the toast of the ton—but the devilishly handsome rake trying to oust them from their home thwarts her at every turn. How can one man be so vexing and make her simmer with desire?

As her attraction to Sam deepens, Julie’s problems grow—she may have, once upon a time, secretly shared a kiss with his honorable older brother. Suddenly, Julie’s caught between a rogue and a marquess, between passion and respectability. Torn between two brothers, what’s a girl to do?
