Sweet Treason by Gail Ranstrom

I was disappointed by this book. The description for the book is what hooked me, but the story telling fell short.

Let me explain.

I loved Emily and Ryan. Both characters were strong, witty, and just all around wonderful. Their interactions were also great (save the overused joke of Emily changing Ryan’s last name “Sutton”).

​My issues were more with the secondary characters (especially those in London, all the gentlemen and ladies save Ryan’s friend Devaux, who was a very nice man). Certain subplots (especially the one concerning Ryan’s spiteful ex-lover) seemed insignificant, but more than that, they weren’t always seen through to resolution/closure. I also felt that the villains (can’t say who, or I’ll spoil the book) felt flat and predictable.

I will say, however, that the world was described extremely well, and the characters who I did like (Emily, Ryan, Lucy, and Devaux) were all colorful and fun to read.

I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
