  • good story but annoying heroine

    This book started out quite charming with its self-taught bluestocking heroine but the more I read, the more intolerable I found her. I'm all for intelligent, educated women, but her arrogance about it as well as some of her inner dialogue on logic was just annoying. The hero, Bennett, son and heir of to a marquess and responsible for all of the family's interests, was charming enough, but I wished he'd been a bit more assertive at times. Their dialogues just didn't really do it for me either, especially during some of the steamy scenes, but this is probably just me being picky. It also bothered me that the highly logical Ida went on this impulsive, unplanned 'rescue' mission in the first place, and also that she was so naive in her views about the whole thing. It just didn't jive as believable for me. Ida's confidence just translated to arrogance and presumptuousness for me and I couldn't really connect with her. So many things about Ida just didn't add up and I couldn't get past it, especially her determination that she must get to her sister with no regards for what her sister might want or for her own reputation, which she then decides to worry about much later on, concerned for the reflection of her actions on her other unmarried sister. That bit of contradiction from the supposedly always-logical Ida also didn't jive for me. This was especially irksome given Ida's conviction that she's always right and knows what everyone else wants/needs, as well as her initial unwillingness to compromise. I feel like there was some unnecessary angst and drama in her and Bennett finally getting it together that was a little annoying, as was the fact that Bennett was a bit of a weak, submissive sort of hero for awhile, which is intriguing don't get me wrong, but near the end I was ready for him to step up already. I guess what frustrated me the most was the determination of each to be right and do what they perceived as right without thought to the happiness of others or themselves. After that rant, I will say I did enjoy the book, especially the last few chapters when really saw character growth and willingness to compromise. Overall I'd say it's enjoyable, just not really resonating for me. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
