I am not a fan of the virgin acts like experienced courtesan trope, so I did not enjoy Good Groom Hunting It took me so long to slog through this book, that I ve forgotten some of the things I disliked about it view spoiler One thing that irritated, were the sex scenes that went on for pages, that did not add to the story It s too bad, because I liked the premise and the close cousin characters, but not the execution hide spoiler 2 5 stars I am not a fan of the virgin acts like experienced courtesan trope, so I did not enjoy Good Groom Hunting It took me so long to slog through this book, that I ve forgotten some of the things I disliked about it view spoiler One thing that irritated, were the sex scenes that went on for pages, that did not add to the story It s too bad, because I liked the premise and the close cousin characters, but not the execution hide spoiler 2 5 stars On The Trail Of FortuneAdventurous Josephine Hale Is Determined To Live Up To Her Scandalous Heritage With Half Of A Crumbling Treasure Map That Belonged To Her Grandfather, The Legendary Pirate, In Her Possession, The Bold And Beautiful Lady Is Half Way To A Fortune Unfortunately, The Remainder Of The Map Belongs To Stephen Doubleday, Earl Of Westman, Her Family S Sworn Enemy And Josie Will Do Anything To Get Her Hands On It Even If It Means Seducing The Handsome RogueAnd A Passion Beyond DreamsUtterly Destitute, Stephen Never Dreamed A Fairy Tale About Pirate S Treasure Would Turn Out To Be True Bringing Him A Possible Fortune And A Passionate Lover But Will Joining In This Wild, Impetuous Beauty S Perilous Undertaking Be The Biggest Mistake Of His Life Or Will It Lead Stephen And Josie To A Treasure Far Precious Than Pirate Gold A Fiery And Forever Love Great adventure, great tension between the h h I love the banter and the tension This one was a lot of fun Cute story about a group of girls who swear off marriage and form the Spinsters Club Searching for a family treasure only she believes exists Josephine propositions her neighbor, Stephen, to an affair so as to gain access to the house where she believes the other half of the treasure map she possesses may be found Fun read.

was the worst kind of stereotype the independent woman who secretly wants a man to own her Because she just straight up caved to the hero on every front Every Single Front.Let s be clear here view spoiler the hero never did a single thing to earn her trust He hid things from her on multiple occasions He stole her section of the map He swore not to leave her behind, but then not only does he insist on leaving her behind as soon as they have the whole map but he outright betrays her Fucks her over with her family to try and get her trapped in her house hide spoiler He was The Worst And she never, ever, ever holds any of it against him, which makes her The Worst Worst view spoiler After that horrific betrayal, leaving her behind and fucking her over in front of her mom when she finally catches up to him, what does she do Throw herself at him Literally She doesn t make him pay even once for that, and it should have been the kind of betrayal that broke her affection for him he proved himself to be exactly the kind of man she feared, the kind of man she never wanted to find herself tied to, because she d never be his equal But it had zero impact on her relationship with him This shitbag hero never had to do a single thing to earn the heroine She just hurled herself at him at every turn Which then wrecked any interest I had in her character, because it made her a spineless, brainless twit hide spoiler I barely got through this Definitely not continuing on with this series.P.S Please, Avon, for the love of God, have someone do a copyedit on the Kindle edition of this book because I m assuming the print edition doesn t look like this The word tonight was constantly written as to night and even worse, the word pleasure was constantly written as plea sure This is a fucking romance novel Those two words well, four words when Avon does the copyediting, apparently are probably in this book 150 times, and it is goddamn annoying Or I guess that would be an noying to you, Avon 2nd book in the seriesI m new to this author, just started this series I m not sure how I feel about the book, the series or the author Personally, I think her sex scenes are too long One was 11 pages I like sex scenes, but I d rather see some of those pages devoted to character development The plot was a little better in this book, but the book still felt undeveloped and unfinished It felt shallow I saw sparks of promise and was able to read in one sitting It just feels like an early wo 2nd book in the seriesI m new to this author, just started this series I m not sure how I feel

become a pirate Her grandfather was a pirate, after all Josie owns half of her grandfather s treasure map but, unfortunately, the other half is owned by Stephen Doubleday, Earl of Westman, whose family is sworn enemies of the Hales So, of course, as they work together to find the treasure Josie so that she can be rich and independent and not married, Stephen because his family is destitute they become irresistibly attracted to each other and have quite a bit of naughty, out of wedlock sex Josie is thoroughly ruined and doesn t care, Stephen feels bad about it, they get into scrapes because other people want the treasure too There is a lot of romance in this book, but there is also a lot of solid adventure I liked Josie throughout the book I appreciate a woman who wants to be independent view spoiler Even though she ended up marrying Stephen at the end of the book, I like that she resisted it, and I liked that she made the decision because she loved him and not because she didn t want to be ruined hide spoiler I also like that Josie is a woman who is in touch with her sexuality, and genuinely desires to have sex with Stephen without feeling all embarrassed about it A lot of times, especially in historical romance, the women are shocked that they actually like sex, but Josie has a healthy curiosity about it.Stephen is a bit annoying at the beginning of the book he s quite pompous and acts like a jerk to Josie but I really soften on him as things go on, especially after it s revealed that view spoiler he ruined a girl who later killed herself and he feels incredibly guilty about it hide spoiler However, I was a bit turned off at the end when view spoiler he is described as wanting to claim Josie Of course, if she didn t want to be claimed, she would have told him to go to hell, but it still didn t quite sound right to me hide spoiler Overall, Good Groom Hunting was a good book that I m glad I bought for 25 cents at the library It s the second book in a series, but I didn t feel like I was really missing much although Josie s cousin and her husband were obviously the people the first book was about It was a good standalone book with a great amount of action and excitement and, of course, pirates That, alone, made it worth the time DNF 45% 18 years old sexually curious and impetuous heroine goes treasure hunting with neighbouring hero She

45% 18 years old sexually curious and impetuous heroine goes treasure hunting with neighbouring hero She tongue snogs him at their first meeting, without much participation from the shocked hero In fact, she tongue snogs quite a lot of men out there in the ton, and permits wandering hands on a not irregular basis Her outrageous conduct hardly seems stifled by her professed fear of being found out by her mother, who sounds like the latter administered well deserved punishments for her past transgressions and misbehaviour The hero s conduct is not much better He blew the family fortune through his reckless gambling and whoring lifestyle, which ended when he inherited the earldom following his brother s passing He decides to follow the straight and narrow path and to his credit initially tries to resist the heroine s shameless indecent proposal to him His resolve lasted one day, but to be fair, the heroine is rather pushy and forward and he is only a man after all What really turned me off this book, was the fact that he proceeded to happily initiate and enthusiastically participate in pre coital acts with another woman the day after he became quite sexually intimate with the heroine I said pre coital, because coitus interruptus came in the physical form of the heroine breaking into his house yet again Reading a few reviews, it seems that their conducts will not improve much by my standards later in the book It s a pity, because I just finished and really enjoyed my first book by the author, Third Son s A Cham, which is genuinely funny and heart warming, while the humour in Good Groom Hunting really fell flat for me Nothing funny about bad behaviour
