for me Loved it from beginning to end Lord Griffin Reading was somewhat of an arrogant arse which I m sure is why I loved In Defense of a Liberal Education him so much Don t ask me why b For me very few aspects sours a book faster than the Hsaving smex time with OWOM still if the author must include such it HAS to be a fade to black Unfortunately the reader s first glimpse of Griffin our H is of im aving a romp with a married woman Worse is that Wybór wierszy he was found in flagrante by none other than theeroine Hero Bad intro for sure yet I 11 Before 12 held outope that the rest of the book would slough away that awkward scene Except it got worse Hero was engaged to Griffin s brother Griffin finds POISONS D'AVRIL he s falling in love with Hero Neither of them do the right thing Eventually theyave sex Bibi was not a The Theory Of Industrial Organization happy camper Overall I think the author introduced too much forced angst which made the plot convoluted and drearyDNF 80%.

bit like a throwback to the old 80 and 90 s not uite full bodice ripper but there were melodramaticsappening alongside numerous boot knocking scenes I feel a little traitorous but the many sex scenes detracted from the story for me instead of making me feel the closeness of Griffin and Hero I m going to put some of the blame on my personal distaste for The Math Workshop how Hero was engaged to Griffin s brother and still proclaiming to marryim until very late in the story both Griffin and Hero s actions felt pretty icky to me The author worked Babys Bathtime hard to make Thomas if not villainous pretty unlikable until the very end where she tried to redeemim through a love story didn t work for me There was something else She Left Me the Gun here as well It was a terrible sorrow a welling joy as if all the emotion she d evereld in check or pushed away was suddenly rising to the surface She couldn t control Alorns Treasure (Griffin Pirate Stories Series 2 Book 20) her face couldn t controler body She was coming apart and she d never be able to pin Its Just Been Glorious herself back together again With the brother between them I justad a Cell hard time really warming up to Hero and Griffin as a couple separately I thought they were good characters The sex scenes became over played and I started to skim them a tiny bit there were so many but again my dislike could come from dang Thomas not being shoved out earlier The gin story plot felt like an introduction for Hero s brother Wakefieldis aggressive stance against it The danger Griffin faced because of it the
