Notorious by Nicola Cornick

Goodreads Description:

When the ton's most notorious heartbreaker…
Dangerously seductive and sinfully beautiful, Susanna Burney is society's most sought after matchbreaker. Paid by wealthy parents to part unsuitable couples, she's never yet failed to accomplish her mission of diverting a groom-to-be. Until her final assignment brings her face-to-face with the man who'd once taught her an intimate lesson in heartache….
Meets London's most disreputable rake…
James Devlin has everything he's always wanted: a title, a rich fiancĂ©e and a place in society. But the woman who's just met his eyes across a crowded ballroom threatens it all. Not because she'd once claimed his heart, or that every sinuous swirl of her ball gown takes his breath away. But because the secrets she carries could cost him everything. To put the past to rest once and for all, Dev just might have to play Susanna at her own wicked game….
Let the seduction begin!

My Rating: 3 out of 5

My Review:

This book had a very interesting story line and Susanna and James are interesting characters. I thought the story could have been presented a little better. I thought the story line was too wordy and redundant. It redeems itself at the end however. The one major thing I would have changed was added flash backs when Susanna recalled her passed to not make it so confusing. For a while you read and have absolutely no clue why she's so desperate or why she won't just go to James. It was VERY frustrating. It's round up nicely at the end however so all in all a decent story, but as I stated I would have presented it differently.
