So I picked up An Earl’s guide to catch a lady because the blurb looked really good. So Evelyn Tremaine wants to travel the world and of course doesn’t want a husband,she’s actually in the middle of running away from London to Bath because some Lord wants to comprise her. Evelyn gets drunk and ends up in Matthew Earl of Grey’s bed. My thought is why did she get drunk in the first place? this was never explained, does she have a drinking problem? was this just a one time thing? why was she left on her own? Anyway she gets drunk then naked and climbs into Earl Grey’s bed (hehe see what I did there?) Which then sets off a horrible chain of events in the form of weird passionate kisses, Alpha like behavior from the hero to the point I thought he was going to beat on his chest and proclaim her his woman….I think that might have happened. Mostly the book involved Evelyn running away from Matthew and then there was the sex, after how ridiculous the book was the sex fell flat with one exception. Another things that stood out was was Matthew had been hurt by his former fiancee who cheated on him,But after having sex with Evelyn it magically fixed cured him of his aversion to love, of course it did.Then the trainwreck…book had a threat of a duel,a fist fight and was about ten chapters too long. The books only redeeming quality was that hero read the heroine’s favorite book and quoted a passage to her which I thought was sweet. This entire book gave off that really, really old school romance where the hero basically forces the heroine to love him while acting like a jackass.
If you like the very old school feel and the overpowering Alpha and when I say overpowering it’s basically shut up woman I own you attitude. A total Trainwreck, I mean at one point the heroine calls the hero ‘an old fart’ I mean really? For $0.99 An Earl’s Guide to Catch a Lady: Misadventures of the Heart is very properly priced. I gave it 2 stars on goods reads and that was due the hero’s sweet gesture toward the end.
