Some Like It Scandalous by Maya Rodale | Audiobook Review

Why Did I Listen To Some Like It Scandalous by Maya Rodale?

Another day, another romance mass market paperback from the TBR Cart to be read via audio. Some Like It Scandalous by Maya Rodale is the second in the Gilded Age Girls Club series, but the first I’ve read from the series. The major appeal of this book to me is that it is set in New York City rather than London. I like when historical romance takes place someplace different.

What’s The Story Here?

Some Like It Scandalous is about Theodore Prescott the Third who is considered one of the rogues of Millionaire Row. He had this scandal happen in Saratoga and now his father wants to bring him to heel. Daisy Swan is just biding her time until she can be an old maid and enjoy the freedoms that come with it. Only, there’s a family secret that could come to light and so now she has to get married to protect her family. So, Daisy gets fake engaged to Theo. It’s mutually beneficial as Daisy will help clean his reputation and as said, Daisy needs the engagement for her family. Of course, there just so happens to be some chemistry between the two, try as they might to deny it. But, the plan is to still walk away from the relationship once both sides have achieved their aims.

How Did I Like Some Like It Scandalous?

Honestly, I really enjoyed Some Like It Scandalous. Maya Rodale’s historical romance felt pretty unique compared to what I typically consume. There’s the whole being set in America instead of England. Also, Daisy is an entrepreneur/ chemist. She makes this face cream that makes one’s complexion flawless. Theo has a degree from Harvard and is helpful in helping Daisy market her product. I loved that Daisy had a calling beyond living a life of leisure or just becoming someone’s wife. She’s very independent and that’s awesome. This book flows really well and does a nice job of exploring the whole enemies to lovers trope as well.

How’s The Narration?

The audiobook is narrated by Charlotte North and is 7 hours and 32 minutes long. It felt so fast compared to some of the other historical romance I’ve been listening to lately. I do want to listen to more from this series – both because North has a lovely voice and also because it’s so different from what I usually read.
