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.
