Ending felt terribly rushed Maybe because I felt it was missing the second act Missing something vital that never materialized At least it was missing something vital for meYour mileage may vary It s not a bad book not at all But it is not my favorite from this author ARC provided by publisher 15 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an Economia liquida: Policy honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my reviewGeorgiana was kidnapped by a fortuneunter but even though she managed to save Quaderno d'esercizi per liberarsi delle cose inutili herselfer reputation is in tatters Nicholas is called down from medical s I ad read and loved some of the previous books so I was than eager to get to this one I liked Georgie and Nicholas They re both good loyal people with a passion for knowledge and they ve known other for what seems like FOREVER I THEIR FAMILY BACKGROUND AND THERE S I enjoyed their family background and there s scene with the two family butlers that was absolutely the best part of the book Plot that was absolutely the best part of the book Plot it was fairly non existent The so called conflict was their arguing about the proposal and after that was solved I was nearly alfway through the book The entire book was a gentle meandering I did enjoy everyone s lack of experience but the chemistry was a bit lacking and the leap from friendship to lust to love was a bit telling instead of showing Overall it was a great set up with characters I did like Where Is the Vatican? however I wanted a lot from it Huge thanks to Avon for providing the arc free of charge Whether or not you like this book will be determined by 2 things is banter enough to get you through a 300 page romance with basically zero plot It s good banter it s J s strong suit But when I say there is no plot this is a marriage of convenience story where they don t decide to get married until page 100 and then they do get married and then I swear to god it s like a 100 page carriage ride for them to get to Scotland I get that falling in love is the plot of any romance but it would be nice ifaving dinner with the family carriage ride to Scotland were not like 150 pages of the book For me banter is not enough to Luce e ombra. Giocare con l'arte e la scienza. Con gadget hide the fact that there was zero plot It just feels like the whole point was to delay themaving sex until what felt like a reasonable amount of time Whereas I d say the reasonable amount of time is after they get married Is seeing a few of the Bridgerton kids as babiestoddlers enough to get you through a 300 page romance with basically zero plot Again YMMV on that Julia uinn s Bridgerton series contains some of my all time favorite Nell'orto.
