All the Ways to Ruin a Rogue by Sophie Jordan Book Review

All the Ways to Ruin a Rogue (The Debutante Files, #2)There was once a lady who loathed a lord... 
Lady Aurelia hasn't always hated Max, Viscount Camden, her brother's best friend. In fact, as a besotted girl, she thrived under his kind attention – sure that he was the most noble and handsome man in the land. Until her young heart discovered what manner of rogue he really was. Now, though she enjoys nothing more than getting on his last nerve, she can’t deny Max drives her to distraction—even if she tries to pretend otherwise.
...and a lord who was confounded by a lady. 
Max cannot recall a time when Aurelia did not vex him. If she was not his friend’s sister, he would stay far away from the infuriating vixen. Unfortunately, they are always thrown together. At parties and family gatherings…she is always there. Infuriating him, tossing punch in his face, driving him mad...until one night, she goes too far and he retaliates in the only way he can: with a kiss that changes everything. 

I’ve been looking forward to reading Max and Aurelia’s story ever since A Good Debutante’s Guide to Ruin- due to the awesomeness and sheer hilariousness of their banter. I became hesitant after seeing some bad reviews, but I was happy to be the black sheep in this case, as I ended up throughly enjoying All the Ways to Ruin a Rogue! Ultimately, I think it might even be my favorite in the entire series :)

Although I’ve given the previous novels in the series around three flowers, I’d still definitely recommend this series! I’m not too much of a fan of adult romance in general, but this series definitely merits an exception. Each book makes for a quick read, and I love how they’re all companion novels.

The book starts out with a prologue set several years in the past which provides a look at what stemmed Max and Aurelia’s intense dislike for one another. From there, the novels leaps forward to Aurelia and Max’s current feud with one another. While their banter was hilarious in the previous novels, it seems to turn caustic in this one with a newfound tension between the two. The chemistry between them was definitely abundant. Max does love his bachelor status, though, and it was interesting to see how he began to react when Aurelia started to have other suitors who weren’t him. As the book is told in dual povs, you can see both sides of the situation. I was definitely frustrated with both characters at a few points, Max more so, but the build-up to their relationship was so worth it. Aurelia is so fierce, something definitely unique for the time period this novel is set in, which made her and Max’s story all the more fun to read.

The ending (especially the epilogue) was so perfect for this novel! I believe this is the last novel in this series, and it’s definitely a great conclusion. I’d give All the Ways to Ruin a Rogue 3.5 out of 5 flowers. If you’re a fan of historical romance, I think you’ll definitely enjoy this series! :)
