I loved the sibling relationships in this and the romance was fun but I didn’t love the male aggression and the 1800’s version of almost stealthing.

I thought everything I’d seen online that the books didn’t live up to the show and vice Verda but I was so wrong…

The reason I put “it’s complicated” for diversity is because obviously all the characters are straight and white so it does lack diversity  but then again this is England in 1813 and it wouldn’t be anything else. Shonda Rhimes skilfully created a colourblind and sexuality blind society however brilliant though her show is —- it is not the books. 

I think that if you are looking for a light summer romance this is AMAZING but if you’re looking for something to reflect what you saw on Netflix then you’ll be disappointed. 

I did finish it in 2 days if that helps anyone….

This book was a pretty easy and enjoyable read. I was entertained basically the entire book, which kind of surprised me considering I don’t usually read this genre. I loved the plot of the book, but I didn’t connect at all with the characters. 

I really enjoyed the beginning half of the book but there was a scene that turned me off of the book quite a bit. Not enough to completely stop reading the book, but enough to definitely lower the rating 

*spoilers*

The scene in which I referred to was when daphne impregnated herself by having sex with Simon, while he was drunk, and practically forced him to impregnate her. It was pretty disturbing how after Simon left and came back, he said how he wasn’t even mad at her because of that and it was another reason why he left. It excused her actions, the sexual assault that honestly mighty count as rape.
