    Pros the heroine was kind of my fave The hero s reactions to her would constantly make me trolololol the way it addressed the imbalance of power between husband and wife in the regency era but in such a way that I felt that the hero and heroine reached a solid compromise I really, really dislike when the heroine has no power and doesn t push back, maybe that s just me being too modern but whateva whateva the handling of the hero wanting sex, boy howdy am I used to that from boys my age, Pros the heroine was kind of my fave The hero s reactions to her would constantly make me trolololol the way it addressed the imbalance of power between husband and wife in the regency era but in such a way that I felt that the hero and heroine reached a solid compromise I really, really dislike when the heroine has no power and doesn t push back, maybe that s just me being too modern but whateva whateva the handling of the hero wanting sex, boy howdy am I used to that from boys my age, and how it made the heroine uncomfortable to be pressured after one week s acquaintance THE LESBIAN AUNT YESSSSSSSSS the heroine poking holes through the hero s arguments about honor and behavior since it was super hypocritical yay I liked when the hero was all, but I want to spend time with youuuuuuuuu and the heroine was all, sry 2 busy 4 u bye Served him right hmph WHO KILLED THE SISTER I mean I wanted to know I greatly enjoyed the hero s delicious, delicious apologies at the end Aww yeah female fantasy tyvm Cons the stereotypical cuckolding first wife who FORCED the hero to be cold and convinced him that women are evillllllll sometimes I just really didn t like the hero which I know was the point but le sigh, it made me dislike men in general too NOT the supposed point of a romance novel I think The alpha ALPHA HE MALE hero tends to rub me the wrong way, and that is the general template romantic heroes follow Oh so it s not important to honor contracts with women Well, fuck you too But yeah, overall I enjoyed it They fought a lot but eventually worked it out

    1 Star for that time she drugged him without his knowledge,Whatever may be the reason I don t really care for her reason,on why she did soBut the fact that she drugged her husband on her wedding night instead of talking it out or finding some other way to resolve the situation is a bit too difficult for me to digest.And so was the fact that she deceived and misled him into thinking that he hurt and mishandled her that night Another 1 for the casual mention of domestic abuse every few c 1 Star for that time she drugged him without his knowledge,Whatever may be the reason I don t really care for her reason,on why she did soBut the fact that she drugged her husband on her wedding night instead of talking it out or finding some other way to resolve the situation is a bit too difficult for me to digest.And so was the fact that she deceived and misled him into thinking that he hurt and mishandled her that night Another 1 for the casual mention of domestic abuse every few chaptersFor example her friend asking her if her husband beat her yesterday in anger or her presenting her self to her husband ready for her beating because she angered her husband by making a mistake.Or even the hero just casually wondering if beating her on her wedding night went against a gentleman s honor Just no

    The hero in this one was an overbearing ass for almost the entire book and there were a few too many casual references to wife beating that drove me nuts And yet Why the 5 star rating Because Quick s writing is so darn charming It s frothy and fun and I absolutely adore the world she creates There were fun secondary characters, a lot of interesting mysteries and plot threads, hilarious banter, and some excellent logic that Sophy uses to her advantage to fight for the fair marriage she wants The hero in this one was an overbearing ass for almost the entire book and there were a few too many casual references to wife beating that drove me nuts And yet Why the 5 star rating Because Quick s writing is so darn charming It s frothy and fun and I absolutely adore the world she creates There were fun secondary characters, a lot of interesting mysteries and plot threads, hilarious banter, and some excellent logic that Sophy uses to her advantage to fight for the fair marriage she wants I loved Sophy She was quirky, constantly lost things, and looked for honor in all people She was refreshingly different without being unbelievable or too headstrong She was simply lovely Julian I didn t care for as much His arrogance and constant hateful thoughts of his first wife were tiresome However, I kept at it because I always loved to see what Sophy would do next She chipped away at the high handedness and I loved seeing how little by little she makes him reconsider his thinking until he started to recognize how Sophy had changed his life for the better That s not to say she changed him Rather she helped open up his worldview and accept Sophy as she was I loved this Too many books have this weird obsession with changing people to be the perfect partner I liked how the characters were the same but they came to understand and respect each other in order to build their marriage It kept me reading and reading quickly.This was an oldie but a a goodie as long as the hero s attitude doesn t entirely turn you off in the first 30% I stayed in it and ended up loving the ride

    I was so angry with this book On one hand, it had some truly great scenes and plot elements for a Regency romance the heroine duels a courtesan at one point How awesome is that The answer is very awesome.On the other hand, I have rarely encountered a character, in a romance book or otherwise, that I loathedthan the hero of this novel There s your stereotypical alpha male hero of the Romance genre, and then there s this Typical Romance alphole I can stand just fine This this I was so angry with this book On one hand, it had some truly great scenes and plot elements for a Regency romance the heroine duels a courtesan at one point How awesome is that The answer is very awesome.On the other hand, I have rarely encountered a character, in a romance book or otherwise, that I loathedthan the hero of this novel There s your stereotypical alpha male hero of the Romance genre, and then there s this Typical Romance alphole I can stand just fine This this filled me with rage and inspired pure, unadulterated hate This particularly distressed me considering how right Amanda Quick can get it with books like Ravished

    EDIT Whenever I remember Julian s behavior, I get so angry So I am correcting my rating it should be less because of him I hated him not the kind of hero I want to read in my romances gah, I can see changing my rating again to 1 in a couple of years I give this book 3 stars mostly because of Sophy I read this book like 3 years ago and then I forgot about it But one scene has been kept on my mind all the time when Sophy drugs Julian when he wanted to consummate their marriage EDIT Whenever I remember Julian s behavior, I get so angry So I am correcting my rating it should be less because of him I hated him not the kind of hero I want to read in my romances gah, I can see changing my rating again to 1 in a couple of years I give this book 3 stars mostly because of Sophy I read this book like 3 years ago and then I forgot about it But one scene has been kept on my mind all the time when Sophy drugs Julian when he wanted to consummate their marriage I found that scene very witty, and Julian totally deserved that I didn t remember the title of the book nor the author, so I posted that particular scene in What is the Name of that Book group, and after 2 weeks or so, I got the answer thank you Lauren I liked the story especially because of Sophy, she was strong, feminist, clever And of course, it was very fortunate that she knew about herbs to drug her stupid husband when he reclaimed his rights as a husband , even if she wasn t willing to I also liked her younger friends, Anne and Jane, they deserve their own book.As for Julian sighs I really wanted to like him, mostly because Julian is my favorite male name But he was a complete jerk Totally sexist, he even had the nerve to be angry with Sophy when she reclaimed her demands to be fulfill demands that he agreed to accomplish before they were married, but completely ignored after the wedding He was angry most of the story, I had no patience with this man In fact, I almost hated him, only after I reminded this was an Amanda Quick book I couldn t hate him.Anyway, I would recommend this book just for that scene where she drugs him Because of that this book is, if not great, entertaining

    I didn t really like this book The hero , Julian, was a hypocritical bully who continually broke his solemn word of honor without a second thought.The premise of the story is that Julian is a rich Earl with a dead first wife and no heirs His first wife was a slut who cheated on him with practically every man she met and even aborted Julian s baby so that she could continue to have her fun Now that she s gone, Julian has a strong desire to avoid scandal and wants his next wife to just sit qui I didn t really like this book The hero , Julian, was a hypocritical bully who continually broke his solemn word of honor without a second thought.The premise of the story is that Julian is a rich Earl with a dead first wife and no heirs His first wife was a slut who cheated on him with practically every man she met and even aborted Julian s baby so that she could continue to have her fun Now that she s gone, Julian has a strong desire to avoid scandal and wants his next wife to just sit quietly and dispense babies without ever putting a foot wrong.Sophy is a spinster with a small inheritance that provides her with some measure of freedom She s intelligent and an independent thinker and she worries that if she accepts Julian s proposal, she ll lose her freedom and by extension, herself Before agreeing to marry Julian, she asks him to promise her 4 things 1 That she be allowed to choose her own reading material, 2 That she be allowed to continue to use her inheritance as she sees fit, 3 That he take her with him whenever he goes to London, and 4 That they not consummate their marriage for 3 months so that they have time to get to know one another.Julian agrees to these conditions and is even offended by the last one He feels that by asking for his word of honor that he not forcibly claim her in the marriage bed, she s implying he d rape her, and that s akin to her besmirching his honor Unfortunately, Julian is a big fat liar with no honor at all, despite what he claims Even as he gives his word on these 4 conditions, he s privately planning to break every single one, and he does The only part of this agreement he doesn t break is the second one, that she be allowed to keep her inheritance, and that one only stands because he s about a million times richer than Sophy anyway so he doesn t need her money.But all the other parts of the agreement get broken within the first week of their marriage and Julian never, EVER admits that he s breaking his word He continually justifies it to himself by saying that it s his right as her husband to do whatever he wants, or that it s for Sophy s own good that he lay down the law because she s too headstrong, etc. Never once does he admit that he s completely dishonorable The worst example of this is when he finally decides to force Sophy to sleep with him and he s got no qualms about it whatsoever because he s confident that he ll be able to force her to feel pleasure and therefore it won t be rape.Overall it was a sad and downright scary story about how completely powerless women were in this time period Once Sophy is married to Julian, she really has no rights at all She d been counting on Julian s sense of honor to help keep the marriageof a partnership but unfortunately Julian has no honor so Sophy is screwed I liked Sophy as a character and thought the way she handled the blackmailing courtesan was fantastic but I didn t understand why she supposedly loved Julian when he treated her with no respect at all Likewise I had trouble believing that Julian loved Sophy when he clearly didn t respect her or value any of the traits that made her who she was

    Seduction would have been a solid 5 star read if Julian hadn t started out as a selfish, manipulative bastard who used Sophy s affections for his own purposes Granted, that was for her safety, but manipulation for whatever ends does not sit well with me I also didn t appreciate the fact that he all but demanded Sophy to continue loving him without offering his love in return Ugh, the injustice of it all.But meh, I have to admit that the ending did pacify whatever hatred I had for him In my o Seduction would have been a solid 5 star read if Julian hadn t started out as a selfish, manipulative bastard who used Sophy s affections for his own purposes Granted, that was for her safety, but manipulation for whatever ends does not sit well with me I also didn t appreciate the fact that he all but demanded Sophy to continue loving him without offering his love in return Ugh, the injustice of it all.But meh, I have to admit that the ending did pacify whatever hatred I had for him In my opinion, he wasn t able to fully redeem himself, but in retrospect, he did manage to understand where he went wrong and I believe he did try his best to make amends The writing was better than most of the writer s work, and Sophy was incredible I just wished Julian wasn t such an ass in the beginning


  8. Tammy Tammy says:

    didn t really like that she was so deceitful about the supposed rape I really disliked her after she pulled that trick and couldn t bounce back to liking her again Liked the hero but not the heroine She was obsessed with being forced a bit too much for me Especially when he did nothing to warrant such worry.
