Three stars ( I liked it)
I really enjoyed this by Sally MacKenzie. I thought that Kit, the Marquis of Ashton and Jess had amazing chemistry. I thought that bought characters were very likeable. I also liked the plot. The story was very engaging. My issues with this story… I wanted to slap Kit. He was always insulting Jess. Ok, I get that he was hurt and angry because of a very stupid misunderstanding but he went overboard. He had no problem calling or insinuating that she was a vile women but no one else could… Also, there was on characteristic that I thought Kit possessed that was a little too exaggerated… I don’t want to give it away.
I liked Jess a lot but sometimes she irritated me too. Both Kit and Jess had very strong feelings for each other and I’m glad that Jess was not of the ton. It gets a little old reading about only women of the ton. Let’s face it very few people in today’s society would be in the “ton”. Overall, I enjoyed this story and I would definitely recommend it. Just don’t have any sharp objects nearby when you read about Kit :)
I definitely want to read more by Sally MacKenzie. I really liked her writing style and found her story to be very original, especially facing societal issues that are generally not talked about.
