Scandalous, by: HM Ward

Scandalous (Scandalous #1)
by H.M. Ward

My Thoughts:
Scandalous looks at an artist who paints nudes but who walks a fine line between art and pornography, and a preacher who is searching for a way to put her ideals into practice.

Abby left town ten years ago and hasn’t looked back. Her family was gone and all she wants is to start over. The boy she loved rejected her. She is forced out of her church and sent out on her own without any money. She has to survive for a full year on her own and then they will take her back.

Jacks life has been monochromatic for many years, then in walks Abby and his world turns on its axis. It becomes vibrant and full of color.

Abby returns home to her best friend who agrees to take her in rent free for the year. All Abby has to do is land a job that will pay her student loan payments for a year. For someone of her limited experience, she is unlikely to land a job that will pay enough to cover the costs. She gets a tip on a job and finds herself at the home of Jack. He is the one who got away. He is the one who she has been running from and he is the one who could save her.

This was a fast paced romance with some mystery and intrigue. I struggled a bit believing Abby’s responses to Jack given her sexual naivete. Abby also seemed to have a rather rapid paradigm shift that seemed a bit unrealistic. Having said that, I like this book, I really did.

About Reading Haven

I am a thirty something wife and mother of two. I read in all of my free time. I can't remember the last time I chose to watch television. I would prefer reading or hanging out online24/7 but one must pay the bills, thus my day job. I like UF but lately have been exploring more erotica and adult romance novels. I love a good Alpha male and I am not afraid of the dark stuff. I like historical romance as well. Sometimes I go for the YA stuff. I'm a sap for a good love story. I prefer a HEA (insert unicorns, rainbows and kittens). Genres I will read: Contemporary Romance and some Historical Romance, Erotica, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult, and Paranormal Romance.
