Okay, so you know that book that you've built up in your head and have super high expectations for and then when you finally get to read it, it falls flat? Yeah, this was not that book!
Yes and I loved this book! Hollyn and Jasper were so perfectly imperfect and 100% made for each other. Also…the sex is really hot. So there's that.
If I had to choose three words to describe Waiting for a Scot Like You they would be: Hot, hawt, and FUN. Seriously, I just had SO MUCH FUN reading Duncan and Beatrice's story.
So far January has delivered all sorts of tasty enemies/rivals to lovers, and The Ex Talk might just take the cake. And I love cake. A definite win for me!
I don't read a ton of PNR - not for any real reason, it just tends to run under my radar; I plan to rectify this in 2021 - but when I saw the description for Big Bad Wolf by Suleikha Snyder, I knew I needed to get my hands on a copy. And once I did, I was not disappointed!
I'm such a sucker for confident business women - determined to do what they love despite all the odds - and insecure but hardworking lords who are all too aware of their responsibilities. That's what you get with The Heiress Gets a Duke.
This is an absolutely freaking adorable intial-misunderstanding-to-ongoing-antagonism-to-maybe-I-misjudged-you-to-oh-crap-I-love-you romance! Henley and Graeme are super cute (I think I'm legitimately in love with Graeme?) and Henley's sister Walsh and would-be admirer Nikolai are wonderfully memorable.
I dove straight into Someday My Duke Will Come right after finishing the first book in the series, A Good Duke is Hard to Find. I loved Quincy Nesbitt as soon as he was introduced in A Good Duke and was excited for his pairing with Lady Clara Ashford - his best friend's cousin. And once I started reading, I didn't want to put it down.
So Alyssa Cole is just a fantastic writer and there were parts of How to Catch a Queen that were absolutely fabulous, but unfortunately there were also aspects that made it hard to enjoy fully.
Lady Ana Maria no longer belongs below stairs with the servants, but neither does she feel she belongs in the glittery world of the London elite. Where she does feel like she belongs? In a world of brilliantly colored fabric...and with her brother's best friend, Nash, Duke of Melvern.
