  • Fun, feels & plenty of swoon

    I feel so hard for this book. The storyline was fun, the feels plentiful and the swoon heart melting. I thought bot characters were amazing and I adored them individually and as a couple. If I am honest I will tell you that I felt a very personal connection to Elodie and could truly understand the struggles & challenges she endured because of my own. She was kind and very sweet. I know some readers have found her level of naivety to be off-putting but if you consider her history, I felt it made perfect sense. Anyway I loved her, quirks and all. Brandon was a delicious and delectable cinnamon roll hero that started out a bit crusty on the outside but once you reached that warm and gooey center, you realized just how amazing he was and your heart was a goner! I felt that there was a real underlying cuteness to this romance that somehow managed to only emphasize the richness of the emotions and the raw beauty of the romance. All thoughts and opinions in this review are entirely my own and freely given.

  • Hilarious with strong character development

    Ellie has been planning to marry George since they were children. But she’s 25 now, and he still hasn’t proposed in earnest. When she meets Brandon, she instantly feels things. Like maybe she’s having a heart seizure. The more time she spends with Brandon, the more she feels undone. But is she prepared to choose passion over the comfortable life she thought she wanted? I LOVED this book. It’s a bit of a slow burn, with the characters actually taking time to get to know each other as friends before they embark on something more. I wish more Regency romances focused on the characters like this, rather than a contrived plot. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series! Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.

  • The Fates Will Have Their Way

    4.5 stars I didn't want to put this one down! The Wrong Marquess pulled me right in from the start and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough on this hilarious and hopeful historical romance. It features a wonderfully grumpy (but truly romantic) cinnamon roll and a quirky and naive romantic. Fate grants these two a fantastic meet hate and they clash from the get go. I loved how that animosity and distrust slowly gave way to a beautiful friendship and more, as fate threw them in each other's paths time and time again. This is the 3rd book in the series and even though I haven't had a chance to read the others, I didn't feel lost or confused. This can definitely be enjoyed as a standalone. Brandon. *swoon* He was a wonderful hero and he gave me all the Mr. Darcy vibes with his gruff exterior, but absolute marshmallow center for those that he loves. I think this is the first time I have ever not rooted for the childhood friend/love interest (not that George's behavior was ever remotely attractive). Brandon's relationship with his sister, Meg, was the perfect balance of caring and overbearing. LOL. His tenderness and thoughtfulness had me swooning and I loved what a romantic at heart he was. His patience and restraint throughout the novel, giving Ellie time to overcome her fears and not settling for anything but being her first choice, made me fall even harder for him. Book boyfriend hall of fame here for sure! I loved him and Ellie together (the sunrises and bridge *heart eyes*), but Ellie's inability to see George for who really was grated on me. In the beginning I was able to look past it given their history, but once she realized her true feelings for Brandon, she really should have put an end to any of the George nonsense. Her behavior was very disrespectful to Brandon and though that wasn't the ultimate reason for the drama at the end of the book, I do wish Brandon would have put his foot down more firmly. Ellie had a wonderful character arc though and I appreciated that she realized her errors and took steps to grow and move forward. She also gave some good grovel (I'm always a fan of more grovel though LOL) and I was thankful that everything with George and his character was resolved once and for all. I wasn't a big fan of Ellie's friend, Prue, given what transpired, but my heart hurt for her and what she experienced. The end of the book planted the seeds for a wonderful (but likely emotional) second chance romance for Meg and laid the foundation for an intriguing marriage of convenience/arrangement for Prue. This is my first book by Vivienne Lorrett, but I can't wait to go back and read Jane and Wynn's books, while I wait for Prue's book next! CW: death of parent/family, anxiety, panic attacks, nightmares/fear of impending death/loss *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

  • *** CAPTIVATING ***

    Loved, loved, loved it. Ellie's character is one I will not forget anytime soon. It amazed me how open and honest she was despite whatever propriety dictated. Her relationship with George was so different than with Brandon. Brandon was 100 percent male and ever the gentleman. At the beginning one would not guess that to be so. But later he is tender, understanding, thoughtful, gentle and just amazing. It surprised me that Ellie was incredible naive in area of relationships, romance and marriage. It was beyond me that she could not comprehend the feelings and emotions that sparked to life when around Brandon. It was like she never had girlfriends who spoke of these things. I mean she was a complete blank slate. She reminded me of child in the body of a woman who was alien to the feelings of attraction, desire, passion and love. It was amusing though how Brandon adored her simple childlike view of what attraction and desire was. Ellie had a fear of death after her father died and was buried. That turned into fear of 99 percent of things people in life face without a thought. It was emotional the Ellie from the beginning of the book to the end of the book and how the changes took place. A hopeful read and I highly recommend it. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Entertaining Page-turner Romantic Steamy Unpredictable

  • boring at times

    Ms Lorret is another of my favorite authors and I always look forward to her novels. The prologue was excellent in that it gives the reader the reason the heroine was so afraid of living and the reason for the nightmares. Elodie and George made a pact at a very young age that they would marry, and George would always be there for his best friend, Elodie. Only George never seems to grow up, and takes Elodie for granted and he was verbally mean to her at times which I did not like. I didn't like the fact that Elodie let George walk all over her, she kept making excuses for his actions, Even when Elodie falls in love with Brandon , she is still clinging to George, and I wanted to kick her in the bum and say smarten up for God's sake !! Her anxiety and fear of dying took over much of the book, and it dragged somewhat. Elodie was a smart young woman for the era, but so much of the book made her look like at air head, maybe that is why I had a hard time liking her.. I thought Elodie forgave Prue to quickly, that was a rotten thing for a best friend to pull, even if she was lonely.. That said, I am looking forward to Prue's story.
