  1. 3.5 Stars, actually (Dear Goodreads: please allow half stars, some DO do things by half measures!)

    The premise of this book was refreshing; so often, Recency books seem to downplay the extreme classism that existed during this time period. Nobility and the untitled members of the ton really did look down on those whose money was recently gained by trade or commerce. Even those families that needed the infusion of cash and traded their good/titled/old names for money often considered themselves be

  2. I give up. I got about 69% through this book and I just couldn’t take it anymore. The book started well enough, but I just couldn’t make myself finish it. Gabriel was a total asshole.

  5. Ehhh, what can I say. This book started out interesting, and I really felt for Talia in the beginning of the book. Needless to say, it went downhill from there. I made it halfway through before I realized I was reading just to get it over with and decided to quit.

    Talia and Gabriel met twice before the wedding and then once (briefly) on their wedding day. Then they had magical sexy time on their wedding night, and that was apparently enough to make them fall in love, even though Gabriel shipped T
