Reeling from the death of her daring Navy SEAL brother, reserved McKenzie Prescott decides to honor him in the only way she can think of--by finishing his bucket list. Suddenly, she’s doing things she’s never dreamed of--like jumping off waterfalls...and inviting the intoxicating stranger she meets in Las Vegas to help her with some of the more racy items on the list… Noah Payne used to be a Navy SEAL…until his job cost him his family. Now he wants revenge, and he’s not above playing dirty to get it. His current mission—to find a missing shipment of guns—is the last piece of the puzzle. But his only lead is Liam Prescott’s bucket list. Noah figures that by getting close to Liam’s sister, McKenzie, he’ll soon get his hands on the list. Only keeping his hands off a suddenly sexy McKenzie is turning out to be the real challenge!
I am struggling with not only how I want to rate Rouge but also with my review. There were aspects that I really liked others that I did not but I am not sure I can use the two against each other to come to a happy medium. I am going to go with this book was just okay, because I feel like that is the easiest way to explain it. It wasn’t great, it didn’t suck, but it didn’t wow me either so okay it is. I do wonder if it is because it is the first book in the series and it has first book syndrome.
I wanted to love this one; the premise is what had me wanting to read it. Noah and McKenzie should have been what totally drew me and kept my attention but I just didn’t feel the chemistry between them. While Rogue may have only been an okay read for me you may find that you enjoyed it more than I did, as always form your own opinions, what didn’t work for me may work for you.
