STORY: Five years ago, Lord Sorin Latham fled England’s shores to avoid heartbreak and scandal in the form of one Lady Eleanor Cramley. On returning home, he finds the young miss he used to scold for lack of decorum is now a stunning woman who fires his blood. But he must resist temptation or risk losing his honor as a gentleman and the friendship of those he holds dear, including Eleanor.
Lady Eleanor is determined to be the paragon of propriety Sorin urged her to become. But now that he’s back, the man she once thought of as an older brother makes her long to be anything but proper. She must make Sorin see her as worthy of his heart and his desire without losing his good opinion, or her Season will end in disgrace.
REVIEW: If you’re a fan of friends to lovers trope, this one’s for you.
I really liked it and following Sorin as he tries so hard to put distance between himself and his feelings for Eleanor, was heartbreaking. As for Eleanor, loosing Sorin’s friendship and only communicating with him through letters, was hard and I thought these two would never be on the same page.
This is a well written, steady paced story with well rounded characters. However, there’s a scene that I wasn’t so found of, and that one scene made me alter my otherwise perfect score and total enjoyment of this story.
