First of all: Close your eyes to the ridiculous book cover. I don't know what was happening here but it must be addressed. Maybe view it as high camp or something. 

This story is incredibly sweet and funny. Truly the manifestation of that meme text exchange where person 1 asks person 2 how they should confess their love. And once they do that person 2 responds with yeah exactly good luck with the person you actually want. Just that person 1 is actually a married couple including the king and person 2 is the court librarian pining away all while forgetting that he is a minor noble and therefore fulfilling the criteria for joining that marriage. There are some background shenanigans about power grabs at court but the main focus is just the married guys trying their best to flirt and seduce and it is glorious. Such a fantastic read. Just close your eyes to the cover. :)

An unexpected delight. Grabbed this one on a whim, not sure if I've ever read the author before but I'll undoubtedly be trying them again. I am kind of hard to please when it comes to angst, but the levels and type definitely fit my preferences. It also contained skulduggery (a fave) without letting political plotting overwhelm the story. Finally, I like oblivious characters when I can understand WHY they're oblivious.
