Barenuckle Bastards time | Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean

Romance at a Glance

As you all may remember, we were going to do book 3 of this series but realized that one of us wouldn't know what was going to happen because they really are not standalones. So we decided to go back to the beginning with book 1! We start with Devil and Felicity and get a lot of backstory about the Barenuckle Bastards and the world. One thing we didn't realize is that Felicity is featured in one of the other MacLean series and the Bastards are mentioned.  Thankfully that didn't  affect us too much! *** Leave us a rating and review on Itunes *** We discussed: The dark balcony meet-cuteFelicity's lock-picking abilitiesThe Barenuckle Bastards worldThe relationship between Grace, Devil and BeastDevil's powerThe whispering bench sceneOur desire to read Whit/Beast's story. *** Leave us a rating and review on Itunes *** A lot of additional listening on Patreon!
