I loved this book It had the humorous moments to the ones that caused me to tear up I m looking forward to reading the other books in Kasey Micheal s Daughtry Family series. Fun to read the first book of this series I was remembering my mum and how she loved these books Cute Likeable main characters I was interested in the twins, and their future stories Unfortunately, accordingly to the poor, reviews, they books are underdeveloped. More graphic than I enjoy reading. I don t give half stars, but I m sorely tempted to change my rules for this one It s mostly very good, with a vivid, engaging cast of characters and a romance I readily bought into on a story level, I want to give it a four However, there were some weaknesses in the writing that I couldn t ignore The story is rich and we re given plenty of time to get to know the characters, but the passage of time especially, but not only in the jump from part one to part two is patchy enough to detract I don t give half stars, but I m sorely tempted to change my rules for this one It s mostly very good, with a

rich and we re given plenty of time to get to know the characters, but the passage of time especially, but not only in the jump from part one to part two is patchy enough to detract from the flow of the story Or, rather, it doesn t really have a flow Michaels shows us some important passages of the leads relationship, but it doesn t unroll as a story I enjoyed that, but it makes the work feel oddly unpolished so I can t say it s a plus Also, because of the odd non narrative narrative, sometimes the characters behaviour was unnecessarily repetitive Definitely I failed to understand or sympathize with the heroine s self sacrificing reluctance to get involved with the hero when it persisted into the last third of the book And then when they do finally get together, it s all at once and in my opinion, all too fast even with the hero s grief at losing his friend as a mitigating factor The epilogue drops some important exposition in a noticeably clumsy way And, Michaels misuse of modes of address keeps me from being able to really buy into the world of her story a duke s mother doesn t become dowager duchess if she was never married to a duke herself a duke s sisters don t get the courtesy lady with their first names if their father was never the duke there might ve been others besides, but those were major and recurring enough to keep me from being able to drop this nitpick So, although the story s enthralling and the book s a good read, it could have been better and only gets three stars spoilers I m a bit confused as to how Rafe turned out to be such a good man given his complete lack of responsible and respect worthy parental figures Also, I was almost too upset to continue when I realized that Fitz would be Lydia s lost love by book 3 he s such fun and I was rooting for their sweet romance Michaels won me round by the end, though, so while I miss Fitz I m willing to give Tanner his chance And, at first I made many allowances for Nicole and told myself I should like her for what she is then her obliviousness and selfish immaturity got too much and I was thinking I wouldn t bother with the rest of the series because I couldn t stand her enough for a whole book and I didn t want to see Lydia without Fitz but, again, by the end, Michaels won me round, and I find myself again able to be in sympathy with Nicole even while being exasperated by her brattiness I guess it s impressive that Michaels creates characters it s possible to get so invested in 6 Aug 12 The book was rather disappointing It lacked pace and I found the lead charcters

heroine, whose name I ve forgotten because I did not really like her, a childhood friend and neighbour She helps him take care of his twin sisters, which is something like what the blurb says but I thought the sisters role in the story was quite pointless besides the fact that our heroine needed a reason to live at their house, with Rafe They had nothing else to do there And they were boring I hated the fact that mademoiselle la heroine was some poor chit or that s the impression I got whose parents and their say over her were sort of tossed into the background Oh, did I mention her mother was mad Yeah, loony mom And heroine madame thinks it s all her fault because she was nearly raped by Rafe s pervy cousins, who tried to cover up the incident by making it seem like she s the one who wanted to get all naked Her mother lost her mind Now, bite me But I don t really think discovering your daughter s a nympho is a strong enough shocker for someone to actually literally lose their mind, do you More dislike It felt like Rafe sort of woke up one morning and decided he likes this girl, kisses her and wantsNow, madame goes around behaving as though she actually was raped, instead of nearly being which gives the book reason foruseless pages and boring interaction between the two lead characters I did not see their relationship grow They re childhood friends, meeting after years of growth spurt We get that I ve been in a similar situation The author should have had the heroine hero discovering things about each other that changed or hadn t There was nothing of that And then, there was the whole thing of description Somehow I don t remember reading any that described the characters I can t even picture them in my mind Being a girl, I m thinking, What did Rafe look like again and I m drawing blanks That s not good If you picture a character, you can decide whether you like him or not His actions reactions and personality come afterwards as you get to know him I personally thought he was such a twat I mean, I m so used to reading other novels about Dukes who are born into the title their aristocratic ways are unnerving to the female character but in the end it s appealling, gallant, what ever you want to call it Rafe had none of that He was a soldier for crying out loud TheI think about this book, theI dislike it I wish I hadn t bought it really If you disagree with me on any of the above, by all means go read this book I m not stopping you I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to lovers of historical romance Both Rafe and Charlotte are very likeable characters Rafe s two sisters, both very different, added to the story and most likely the author will or already has told their stories in another novel I haven t checked A horrid experience closes Charlotte off to her emotions and to a man s touch Rafe is understanding of the truama in her past experience and lets her move at her own pace At times, however, the budding I enjoyed this

forgotten while they remain friends I also question Charlotte s role in the story Still a single womsn, though considering herself almost a spinster, she spends her time freely with Rafe in his home During this Regency time period, I would have expected an older chaperone available for the story to beappropriate to the expectations of the period For these reasons, I gave it 4 our of 5 stars Regardless, I seldom finish a book that I can t get into and this one kept my interest
