Bringing Down the Duke | Evie Dunmore

Unfortunately I didn't like this book nearly as much as I thought I would. I found both the heroine and hero bland, which is especially disappointing given Annabelle is a smart vice's daughter who's a suffragist and part of the first cohort of women admitted to Oxford. There was too much damsel in distress stuff, and I didn't get why Annabelle was so attracted to and actually sleeps w/ Montgomery given that he doesn't support her cause (at first).

Another wonderfully sweet installment in the Dirk & Steele series. Charlie is a trapped gargoyle who enlists the help of PI & clairvoyant Aggie to rescue a kidnapped child and they fall in love along the way. #romantsy

This book had a sub plot line I was not anticipating ( TW: domestic violence and emotional abuse), sometimes this can come off as insincere in romances, but this read as genuine and relatable. The characters are flawed but loveable. #romantsy

This is the 3rd book in this series and I just couldn‘t get invested in the characters... it was a fine #romantsy, but didn‘t live up to the previous 2 books in the series, but I‘m going to continue the series, I have high expectations.

Friends to lovers, my second favorite romance trope. I thought this was cute and sweet. The relationship between Kristen and Josh made me want to root for them. Much sadder than I anticipated, but a happy , if predictable ending. #romantsy

#BookReport

Another slow reading week for me, I'm afraid. I managed to finish Beloved and BadApple (my #romantsy bedtime book) and I've caught up with A Lost Lady for the #CatherBuddyRead. No progress on either West Coast or Mythos, so that's my #WeeklyForecast - get the former finished and get stuck into the latter.

LeeRHarry I only finished one book so you‘ve done well! 😊 4d
Cinfhen It took me more than 6 weeks to get through Mythos/ even though I LOVED IT!! It‘s just not something you can speed through. Stephen Fry narrated the audio and he was AMAZING🙌🏻if you want I can share the Audible with you, all I need is an email 4d
CarolynM @Cinfhen Thanks for the offer but I've already used an Audible credit on it🙂 I thought I'd like to listen to Stephen telling these stories. 4d

This was way better than I expected. I usually go into #romantsy that predates 2010 with lowered expectations. Balogh‘s novel exceeded them. I loved the heroine Freyja.

Now I‘m at a loss as to what to read next while I wait for my hold on Sarah MacLean‘s Brazen and the Beast to come in at the library. Help?

ravenlee Have you read any Tessa Dare? I love her romances. Also, Jen DeLuca‘s Well Met is a great recent release. 5d
Bianca @ravenlee I love Tessa Dare! I saw Well Met when I was at the bookstore but ended up buying a copy of Brazen and the Beast instead 🤣. 2d
