What a wildly exciting read of an unlikely pair that work perfectly for each other. I love the premise of the storyline and though there are some times that I felt Mary Elizabeth was too naive and a little redundant it did not take away from how much I enjoyed this book.
Mary Elizabeth was truly a character that made me laugh with her antics while admiring her determination to stay true to herself and the life she wants without a husband. Though at times she seemed to have blinders on with regards to Harry she also saw parts of him that others did not see.
The portrayal of Harry intrigued me. He was humble, quiet, masculine, a conflict avoider, then all of a sudden he started to show a stronger side where he finally starts to fight for what he really wants. A refreshing change to the always have my way in charge dukes we typically read, Harry’s character was the perfect foil for Mary Elizabeth. I loved his character from page one.
The overall feel of this book is two people who do not fit in the cookie cutter world of society and are struggling to retain the essence of who they are while being forced to find their match and get married. It’s is a light entertaining read.
I give it 4 STARS and know you’ll enjoy this book.
