review å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ö Elizabeth Hoyt

New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt brings us the first book in her sexy and sensual Greycourt SeriesFreya de Moray is many things a member of the secret order of Wise Women the daughter of disgraced nobility and a chaperone living under an assumed name What she is not is forgiving So when the Duke of Harlowe the man who destroyed her brother and led to the down Why hasn t Jilly written a review for several days Because I have stalled out on this book I can tell how much a book is holding my attention by whether or not I am willing to turn on Netflix at night So the last few nights I have been rewatching the Schitt s Creek series That tells you how much this book captivated meIKR Jilly is a night reader not night watcherSo why is this book so boringIt had potential to be exciting There is a group of women who call themselves Wise Women which let s be honest is just a tad presumptuous and pretentious You never call yourself wise You wait for other people to do it Maybe start spouting philosophical terms and wear some smart person glasses It will happen naturally that way Just a tip Anyway these Wise Women are basically ye old feminists who try to help womankind in a time when we were looked at as chattel And of course fragile masculinity and all there was a group of men who wanted to kill them They were called witches for having crazy ideas like a woman shouldn t have to give up every cent of her inheritance to her husband the minute she s forced to marry him That s crazy talkThat s right He wears the pants AND the hat in the relationship Also stockings and a jaunty bow around his neck He s a man but he knows fashionAlso there was a terrible tragedy that started the whole chain of events that included murder an elopement a disfigurement a forced marriage and a disgraced family So there was than enough to have an exciting storySo what was the problemNone of the things I mentioned were actually shown in the book It all happened before the story or in the background All the book has is a VERY slow moving romance It wasn t bad exactly it was just that there were so many interesting things that we never actually got to Instead we had the usual stuff like dancing and walking in the woods and playing cards at a house party And holy crap am I glad I wasn t alive back then Talk about boring No wonder they died so young It probably felt like they d lived forever pissing in ceramic bowls wearing uncomfortable clothes eating jinky food and trying to find a way to beat back the boredom every night by candlelight Just fucking kill meNeedless to say I got bored I think that if I hadn t had such expectations then it would have been better It just had a lot of telling and very little showing
