The Sinful Suitors #1
Pub date: June 21, 2015 (ARC review)
H/h - Jeremy Keane/Lady Yvette Barlow
Setting: London, 1829.
Read in July, 2015.
3.25 stars. I wish I could rate it higher but the beginning of The Sinful Suitors series wasn't as good as I hoped it'd be. I liked Jeremy in the previous series when he was introduced as Zoe's cousin. But he was a rather minor character so didn't think he'd be the hero of his own book; but I was glad to find that he was!
The story started out well but it fall flat pretty soon. Yvette was alright as a heroine but since she was new character, I had no idea what to expect of her. I found her a bit wishy-washy on occasion. Also didn't like that at first, she was being really nosy about Jeremy's past when he didn't want to talk about it. They were virtually strangers, yet she expected he'd open up about his personal life. Just like that?
Overall, what bothered me most was the lack of anything exciting happening throughout. It was all Yvette and Jeremy dancing around 'should we or should we not' regarding their budding relationship. Both were stubborn and wanted to have everything their own way, which caused more than one problem. After a while, honestly, it got old.
Because this is the first in a new series, I'm gonna overlook this. Ms. Jeffries is one of my favorite Historical Romance authors so I'll be awaiting the next in the series in hopes that it'd be much better. Fingers crossed!
