Publisher's Summary

Quirky and fun-loving American heiress Daisy Bowman is the last unmarried Wallflower. Her exasperated father has informed her that if she can’t find a husband by the end of her third London season, she will be forced to marry a man she hates - the ruthless entrepreneur Matthew Swift.

Daisy is horrified. A Bowman never admits defeat, so she decides to do whatever it takes to marry someone...anyone...other than Matthew. What she doesn’t count on, however, is Matthew’s unexpected charm, or the blazing sensuality that soon flares beyond both their control. And Daisy discovers that the man she has always hated just might turn out to be the man of her dreams.

But when a scandalous secret is uncovered, it could destroy both Matthew and a love more passionate and irresistible than Daisy’s wildest fantasies.

Rizzo the Rat had a better accent.

I had been waiting for this revamp for three months, it's my favorite story in the series and Daisy is my favorite character. So when I excitedly logged in and saw it waiting for me in my library I was extatic. If I had known what I was in for I never would have waisted my time. When I say this is the worst New York accent I have ever heard I am in no way exaggerating. I have lived just outside NYC my entire life and I've heard people's bad interpretations of the accent more times than I care to count. But this is a travesty. It is forced, poorly reaserched, and sounds like every man has a terrible cold. It sounds like the narrators only reference for a Manhattan accent was the muppet Rizzo the Rat, who doesn't even have a Manhattan accent, then didn't even do the impression the slightest lick of justice. The cartoonish accents ruin the entire experience. I cant enjoy a simmering romance when my ears bleed every time one of the main characters speak. Bring back the old version.

Painful American accents

I can’t say that this was my favorite of the wallflower series. It was fine. The male American accents were painfully bad - the New York accent was borderline offensive, and the Boston accent was not a Boston accent. They were hard to get past, even though the rest of the book was beautifully read.

That was rough

I made it to the end but it was tough. The story was blah. The accents were horrible. I need to stick to Roslyn's narration and all will be well in storyland.

Rough listen

If this wasn't a book I'd already read and love, I don't think I could have standed listening to this audiobook. All of the American accents are bad and since most of the main characters in this one are American it was difficult to listen to. I highly recommend the story however.

Enjoyable by accents were poor at best

Although the book was Predictable, it was still enjoyable. The accents were horrible New York and Boston accents they sounded like lower class queens. I grew up in New York and never have I heard these accents in such a crude Manor

Worst accents ever!

What is up with the terrible New York and Boston accents! I grew up outside of Boston and my mom was born and raised in Brooklyn. I hear my fair share of people butchering accents but this takes the cake. And I love MJW so I am so disappointed. I think I am going to buy a physical copy to read.

Great Story! Unbearable narrating

Had to turn on captions and just read the book without sound because every male voice was so horrendous it would immediately take me out of the story. I adore Daisy & all the Wallflowers stories, but in this one Daisy was read almost like a childs voice & noises. quite grating on the nerves.

Thank you… for the pregnancy loss and the rainbow baby.

This was my favorite of the set of 4. It’s true about the American accents being terrible; the other reviewers aren’t lying. But Daisy is so precious, Matthew’s love is so sincere, and the very small subplot about miscarriage was everything. After being hit with something so realistic and personal, every moment of this book became more poignant and important than any book before. Thank you, Lisa Kleypas.
