The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

4 Stars

First, I’ll start with saying that while it was a good book with a lot going on, it definitely isn’t worth $10 IMO. Thankfully I got this copy for free (Thanks for bringing me along on this ride, Heather).

I’m not going to do a full review on this book because it was super long and RL is a wee bit hectic at the moment. I had such crazy high expectations for this book which is the story of my life when it comes to historicals and fantasy/magic. While it was good, it wasn’t great. I equate it to finding out there isn’t really a Santa. I still love Christmas time every year but it doesn’t hold the magic it once did with the reindeers, flying sleighs, and the North Pole. This book lacked the magic and could probably have been trimmed due to some of the ramblings and pages upon pages of descriptions.

I liked Percy and Monty together. They had some tension but if you’re looking for sexy times, you won’t find anything but a few kisses. They worked well together and I could feel the love between them. I really liked Henry, Percy and their respective personalities. In a way, I wish there was a bit less going on so I could get to know them without all the dysfunction.

Felicity is a badass. Seriously, I wanna be her when I grow up. She has balls of steel and stole the show throughout. During a time when females were meek and mild, she was a tigress. Kudos to the author for writing a strong female with depth.

If you like historical m/m and intrigue, this could be the book for you. I would recommend this book if it was priced around $5.
