Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
Henry Montague was born to be a gentleman….but he would rather just have a really good time.
This story was just a wonderful romp of fun. It was so entertaining and was so compulsively readable. It follows our main character Monty the son of an Earl, his sister, and his best friend Percy as they head out on their tour of Europe. This tour is meant to be Monty’s last chance to prove himself to be a gentleman worthy of inheriting his fathers title and to rid himself of his thoroughly earned roguish reputation.
I was so impressed by how much character development actually happened and the important topics that were discussed and actually handled very well. The romance is written so well and not overplayed which I really appreciated. She made you work hard for that kiss that had you melting in your boots… and no insta-love…can I get a hallelujah, standing ovation, I tip my hat to you madam!
Their swashbuckling adventures were over the top and ridiculous in the most fantastic way and I was entertained the whole time. I loved all our characters and enjoyed how realistic they were written. They all developed as the story progressed and learned about themselves and each other. The only thing I think I would have changed was the one part of the conflict with supernatural like elements, it felt a little out of place and I don’t think the story needed it, we had plenty of conflict without it, I would have preferred it to be proved to be a myth.
Overall this was so entertaining and funny and I would definitely recommend it for an entertaining romantic romp of a read. Looking forward to more by this author.
