  • Entertaining Historical Romance

    3.5 stars I'm still fairly new to the historical romance genre, but it's fast becoming one of my favorites. I love all the pining, yearning, and meaningful glances. A Rogue of One's Own definitely delivered on these fronts, but it was also a much more emotional and heavy novel than I was anticipating. What I liked: - Lucie and Tristan's banter. These two gave as good as they got and I loved their witty jabs and comebacks. It's a slow burn between these two, but I loved their shared history and that they knew each other as children. - The information and insight about the Women's Suffrage Movement. It was enlightening and truly heartbreaking. It seems worlds away to how I am currently able to live my life, but it's hard to believe that it actually wasn't that long ago in history. - The strong female friendships. I love this group of women and how they rally and come to each other's aid. It was especially wonderful to see Annabelle and Sebastian again and get a little update on how they're doing. SPOILERS What didn't quite work: - Some of the secondary characters were very cookie cutter and not really explored/fleshed out. The sexuality of one specific character was a plot point and I'm not really sure why it was relevant or necessary to the story. He was portrayed in a very contrived and negative way. The author did try to draw parallels to the similar challenges and constraints his sexuality and women's suffrage share, but it really left me more confused than anything. - The use of Hindu deities. I do not know very much at all about Colonial India or the Hindu religion, but what occurs in the book was enough to make me question why it was necessary to include this in the story and why it needed to play such a pivotal role in the final conflict. After discussing it with a friend and hearing her personal perspective, I definitely feel it was unnecessary and in poor taste to have this in the book. - The pacing of the book. It was a slow start for me and took a while to feel invested in the characters/story. Things definitely picked up in the second half, but I think that might be too late for some readers. - I'm never a fan of the reformed manwhore and it took time for Tristan to win me over. He ended up being a great anti-hero though and my heart definitely broke for him a few times throughout the book. He also gave some pretty good grovel, so that's a plus too ;) END SPOILERS Overall, this was an enjoyable read and I was rooting for Tristan and Lucie to find a way to overcome all the obstacles in their lives. I'm looking forward to Hattie's story next! CW: death of a child/sibling, PTSD, depression, child and domestic abuse *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

  • Fine, but not a new favorite for me

    Another one I wanted to pick up before casting my vote for GR Choice - this wasn't my favorite. There was nothing particularly that I can point out as being the problem, but it didn't catch and distract me with it's fluff the way I was hoping it would. I might still try the first book of the series and see if I enjoy different characters more.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Lost steam 3/4ths of the way through

    I had to skim the end, something about the largest plot point near the end struggled to keep my attention.
