I’ve had a cold since Monday and sleep is something I should be getting plenty of right now. I headed to bed on time for once last night, and settled in about 10:15 PM with my copy of this e-book, figuring I’d read for five minutes or so and then turn in. There aren’t many books these days, even my favorites, that can overcome my love of sleep. But for whatever reason, I just kept reading last night. And reading. Once I hit 11:45 PM I knew I needed to put the fool thing down and go to bed, but I just. Couldn’t. Stop. It was 1:15 AM by the time I finally forced myself to stop reading, and by that time I’d made it most of the way through the book. And honestly, the only reason I was able to actually put it down was because I’d gotten to the sexytimes finally.
I don’t know, I just reallllly liked this? It hit me just right. I loved Anthony, that stubborn a-hole. I loved Kate. Her love for her sister, her feisty nature. I loved them together. Hate to love romances can go very wrong, but when they are right they are SO RIGHT. Right in the swooners. Definitely need to buy my own hard copy of this one.
I enjoyed this book so much I have a hard time believing that books three and four can get any better than this one, but they are apparently everyone’s favorite in the series. To that, I say: BRING IT ON, JULIA QUINN. But I will fuck your shit up if you make me lose anymore sleep.
I realize this review is mostly about me and not the book, but tough shit. I got four and a half hours of sleep last night.
One more thing, though. For some reason I headcast Hayley Atwell as Kate, but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out who I’d cast as Anthony. The closest I could get was Henry Cavill, but he’s really not feisty or mischievous enough. Heellllp. It’s driving me crazy.
