Ere stars This book hit me right where I wanted it to right when I needed it Funny heart wrenching and incredibly romantic I had a very hard time getting this story out of my head when I had to put it down to go do those tedious things that other humans expect of meAs I said in my giddy post above Tessa Dare does all those things I ve been wanting authors to do Yes there s angst and some separation and misunderstanding but neither of the characters had to be struck TSTL in order to achieve these plot points Their misunderstanding was the most organic I ve seen in a long long time I couldn t fault either of them for believing what they did couldn t fault either of them for believing what they did though I knew they were dead wrong It wasn t a frustration because it wasn t manipulated by the author to fulfill a templateI do hope we get to see this couple in the companion books They re really delishI was drawn to this book by Dina s review and then by others who started piping up HMS Rane Alexis take a bow So I won t go into any detail about the story because it s been covered nicely I m looking forward to the next ones but I might do some rereads in between so I don t get burnt out Obviously I m very enthusiastic and excited about this new author D 45 StarsWow this book was a complete surprise for me after the Stud Club trilogy I wouldn t have tried this author again having failed to connect to two of the three books in that trilogy if a friend of mine hadn t praised this one so highly Thank goodness I did because this book was great I enjoy falls for sibling s friend storylines as is so that predisposed me to enjoy the relationship setup but Jeremy and Lucy and their dynamic are what made me continue to enjoy it I enjoyed watching Lucy confuse herself with her attraction to Jeremy She believes herself in love with another friend of her brother s but she can t resist Jeremy when they get in close uarters At times I was irritated with Lucy for being so fixated on Toby but most times I was just embarrassed for her Plus watching Jeremy try to protect Lucy from herself and watching him give her some hard truths really made me love him I really liked that he didn t do it in the beginning from jealousy or attraction He was just helping her because someone had to look out for her and clearly no one was taking the jobI loved watching Jeremy stumble over his feelings for Lucy He may not have been upfront with her but he didn t try to lie to himself about wanting her and wishing he could have her for himself I also like that he was honest with himself about how his friends were He didn t flinch from the fact that they had created Lucy s behavior through their own actions Jeremy wasn t dark and dangerous Lucy actually laughs when she hears that he s known as a rake in London but he is incredibly compelling He s distant and closed off but he can t help himself around Lucy He s always sticking his neck out to help her and and he can t deny that he wants her His honesty and his reluctant care were incredibly endearing It also helped that when Lucy and Jeremy got physical the book got very hot The wardrobe scene and their inability to resist was an excellent example of how delicious they could be togetherI loved Sophia and was glad that she struck up a friendship with Lucy How often does the heroine befriend the other woman even when she no longer desires the man Sophia was so desperate for excitement and adventure that I can t wait to read about her next I m sure her fantastical stories will be a trip And nothing but excitement can come from how her story ended in this bookThe only real disappointment for me was the misunderstandings that cropped up near the end Both were so willing to believe that the other person didn t really want them that I got frustrated I just wanted to stick them in a room and make them talk with each other They weren t a deal breaker for me and they didn t last for a large chunk of the book so they didn t drop my grade for the book much Also sometimes those misunderstandings could be hilarious like when Jeremy was incredibly disappointed that there was no dessert for dinner The humor and the great characters have really made me eager to read the next book Hopefully I ll like that one just as muc. He must give his passions free rein Their sensual battle of wills is as maddening as it is delicious but the longer he succeeds in managing the headstrong temptress the closer Jeremy comes to losing control When scandal breaks can he bring himself to abandon Lucy to her ruin Or will he risk his heart and claim her for his own. Rprised when the emotionally closed off EARL OF KENDALL IS NOT THAT of Kendall is not THAT offBoth characters in this book were great I loved the chemistry and the witty conversations between Lucy and Jeremy Whew I needed a cold shower from some of the scenes between these twoI m hoping the *rest of the series will be just as good as Goddess of the Hunt It was a fun and crack worthy *of the series will be just as good as Goddess of the Hunt It was a fun and crack worthy to read in a few days 35Can always rely on Tessa Dare to write stories that make me happy 5 StarsI LOVED itWho in the world is Tessa Dare and where has she been all my life Goddess of The Hunt had me hooked from page one I cringed every time I knew I had to put this one down and I hated the fact that my eyes betrayed me at night when I d fall asleep trying to read it I don t see a Best Seller on the cover et but I promise if this lady keeps writing books like this she s going to be the next Julia uinn the old not the new onePages 115 128 holds the most intense steam building mouth hanging open loves scenes I think I ve EVER r Kinda cute Kinda blah Lots of ups and downsPros Highly entertaining and fun with humor like all of Dare s other books The protagonist s character development Some cute scenes and bantering between Lucy and Jeremy Second half of the book shows maturity and adds a realistic touch with them sorting things out after getting together Lucy s developing relationship with her brother They started out rough but I really liked how things eventually developed between them His protectiveness was sweetCons The protagonist is immature and weak compared to Tessa Dare s other protagonists Lucy can get annoying while trying to seduce Toby at all costs and while initially being flippant about her duties and responsibilities as countess With that being said in the pro section I definitely do see some character development I would have liked a bit but I do appreciate that she matures a bit Even though the 2nd half of the book is mature and serious it is also very irksome Lots dedicating our horniest book to our husband is uite the power move ms darei m reading all of tessa dare s backlist for a video i m doing and to be honest if it weren t for that video i would not have picked this book up dare s most recent series Girl Meets Duke is one of my favorite historical series but her others um not so much so i didn t have high hopes going into this her first published novelbut i was very pleasantly surprised this book has an originality that a lot of her other books lack that s not to shit on her writing it just seems to me that a lot of her books have predictable plots and VERY similar character pairings grumpysunshine damaged herostrong heroine rakenerd this one not so much our heroine is oung and a little foolish with a LOT of spirit and our hero is not uite a rake or too overwrought with damage he s just a dude who s seen some shit i also appreciated that the plot didn t end at just a marriage proposal i think that s uite common in a lot of modern like 2010 present published historicals and i am finding i really appreciate when characters get married and then actually have shit to deal with which this one had i really liked the deeper level of intimacy the characters gained beyond fleeting attraction and sexoverall i really liked this i think if ou like dare s latest books this might not be a hit for ou but it really worked for me 4 stars If ou looked up the word minx in the dictionary I m sure there would be a picture of Lucy Waltham next to it Sure a lot of authors say their heroine is a minx but Tessa Dare shows us she is it s delightful Such a charming read it kept me up most of the nightLucy has been the bane of Jeremy Trescott s existence since childhood Now he s going to turn her into a woman and his countess in spite of himself I really felt his frustration in trying to fight his attraction to Lucy LOL This book is laugh out loud funny at times tender and sweet others and still the love scenes manage to sizzle Lucy Waltham has just found out the man she s been in love with since she s been a child is getting married Thinking of only way to get him to change his mind is seduce him but she needs someone to practice on first Thinking of her brother Dang Why aren t th.
