  • Great book, fun characters, realistic relationship

    I really enjoyed this! Most M/M books I've read so far were too over the top or had annoying characters or some of the other typical flaws plaguing romance novels. This one was just great. The characters were both fun and likable and not too perfect, the sexy bits were hot but fit into the plot instead of making the plot seem like a thin excuse for them, everything was great. Will definitely look for more books by this author.

  • The Soldier's Scoundrel

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters and the interplay between them as well as all the period details. I will read whatever Cat Sebastian writes. Can't recommend her too highly.

  • Great M/M romance

    Thoroughly enjoyed this male/male romance. The characters were well drawn, and the sexual tension is handled beautifully. A great read.

  • Caught my attention right away

    I’ll start by saying that I rarely read historical romance because I’m just not interested in past worlds and ways, particularly the Regency and Victorian era. But this book was very highly recommended so I thought I’d give it a shot. A wonderful surprise and truly a big step out of my usual reading but I’m glad I took the chance. I loved Cat Sebastian’s writing and her pace was spot on for me. There was plenty going on in the story and I never felt like it was slow. I really enjoyed the opposites attract and class differences issues between Jack and Oliver. I also liked Jack’s work as a pseudo-investigator and the mystery that the stolen letters added to the story. It was a unique backdrop to bring these two very different characters together and keep them together while they worked out their feelings for each other. Jack was your perfect rogue hero, with a shady reputation but a genuinely good heart. He’s useD to relying only on himself and he has certain ways he likes to accomplish his goals and he’s certainly jaded when it comes to the ton. But even with all his blustering it was really sweet to see how he came to care for Oliver and want to help him whenever necessary. And even though he got involved with someone from the upper classes when he knew he shouldn’t, he always strove to keep his dignity and not be ashamed for who or what he was. Oliver himself was also an excellent hero in a slightly more stuffy way — at least at first. He’s lived with the chaos of war so now he wants things orderly and in his control and there’s just no way he’s going to control Jack. Oliver probably had the most growth in the book because he really had to learn to accept what Jack did and understand that sometimes things aren’t so black and white. I also liked his shyer demeanor when it came to the more intimate parts of their relationship and I loved when he really let his wicked side come out.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Pretty Good.

    This was a good read. Long, with a twisty plot of investigation, and a slow burn romance, but I enjoyed the overall story. I feel like it stuttered a little between the 30%-50% mark, and it could have been condensed a little. It felt *really* long to read, but it came together in the end. This is my first book by Cat Sebastian - one of those authors that I've owned, but never got round to reading, for too long - and I enjoyed their writing style. It was perfect for me, though I did notice a few editing/grammar mistakes, which I was surprised by as this was a purchase and not an ARC, which I'm used to having errors. It had a good start, a strong ending, and a sticky middle, but came together to make a good story. The characters were strong and intriguing, the plot was (mostly) nicely paced, and the investigation with given almost equal status to the romance, which I liked. I'm surprised Georgie is next, as I didn't really get the feeling he would have his story. Maybe that's part of the stickiness that kept me from loving it? I enjoyed the book, but I never really got that urgent, intense feeling of "Oh my God, I need x's book, right now!" and maybe that's on me? I do own the next book, so I'll give Georgie a chance to change my mind. I also own book 3, but I can't yet see where that character fits in, or if they're a completely new character. Time will tell.

    Thanks for your feedback!
