Anyway, I had the book wired to my kindle in just a matter of hours..(error on my part for it taking so long) and I began to read it. From the start, the Novel sucked me in. But as I went on, I started bracing myself for a sexual intercourse between Grey and Juliette. And I didn't much like the looming prospect. Is it possible to have clean romance novels? Anyway, I shall leave the rest to my review.
- Characters: I fell in love with Grey from the start. There is just something about slightly arrogant posh guys that charms me. Juliette is such a sweet dear, and her conflict tore at my heart almost as much as her own. Uncle Lucian was very laughable, and the dotting Aunts are all to adorable.
Romance. We all know it will be a happily ever after, but A Lot Like a Lady keeps you from putting it down. It is just to stinking hard. You read on and on, and before you know it, its over.
As before stated, the lovely writers just pulled me in so hard, I couldn't release myself.
Well...seeing how I got the book because of the cover...I must put my utmost seal of approval on it. Masquerade masks=total win.
Again, romance. We all know in the end, the Lady and Hero will live happily Ever After (Maybe thats why Romeo and Juliette is so popular and memorable..it is contrary to all romance stories). And Even though I'm not big into the genre, this ending left me with happy bubbles. Happy pink bubbles. because I like pink, and pink bubbles would be a very happy thing.
The studying that went into this novel was wonderful. I NEVER knew that the waltz was a risque dance in those times. I think the authors did VERY well on their home work.
(Is Chit a bad word anyway? I looked it up in the dictionary...)
There weren't any bed scenes (Thank God. I was crushingly waiting for them), but there was one questionable scene between Lucian and Harmony.
Needless to say, NO YOUNG READERS. And, honestly, if I had known there was so much detail....I can't honestly say I'd still read it. Even though I liked the main story, I liked the idea. The romantic details really weren't needed in my mind.
I liked the book. Don't get me wrong. I REALLY REALLY liked it. But the details in the kissing scenes REALLY weren't needed. And while the Lucian/Harmony scene was a little vague, I still wouldn't feel comfortable with my brothers or sisters reading it.
So, I give A Lot like a Lady a
Romance Novels. What are your thoughts on them?
