What they say: The worst thing Mr. Benjamin Hillary ever did was leave his bride-to-be on their wedding day. 

After two long years abroad, Ben finds Eve every bit as captivating as she was the first time he saw her, and he vows to set things right.

Lady Eve Thorne has a new man in her life, and Ben is nothing but trouble. She is no longer a starry-eyed young woman, and now that he’s back, he can go hang for all she cares. At least that’s what she keeps telling herself… 

Rival Rogues series:
One Rogue Too Many

Publishing 7th July by Sourcebooks Casablanca - ISBN: 9781492608103

I received a copy from the publisher Sourcebooks (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: Samantha Grace's The Best of Both Rogues is part of her Rival Rogues series. It works well as a standalone because each book focuses on a different couple. The rogue this time is Benjamin Hillary. Ben is trying to win back Lady Eve 'Evie' Thorne, the girl he jilted two years previously - the problem? Evie is marrying somebody else! 

I really liked Evie because although she was devastated by Ben's desertion she tries hard to move on with her life. She remains strong even when faced with potential ruin and the scandal of being jilted. 

I liked the banter between Evie and Ben, which was unusual considering the setting. Evie is very modern at times and I often forgot she was a woman living in Regency England. 

Ben has a lot of explaining and redeeming to do if he's going to stand any chance of winning Evie back. He goes on a massive learning curve throughout the story and discovers honesty is far better than excuses and half truths.

enjoyed their story and the crossovers with the previous books, although I would have liked a little more explanation about Ben and his past. 

3 - 3.5 Stars in my Sky!
