Review: Outrageous by Minerva Spencer
Series: Rebels of the Ton #2
From handsome hostage . . .
When Eva de Courtney kidnaps Godric Fleming, her only plan is to stop the irritating earl from persecuting her beloved brother. But once she has the intriguing rogue in the confines of her carriage, she longs to taste the passion she senses simmering beneath his rugged exterior. Her forbidden plan is foiled, however, when Godric turns the tables, taking her hostage instead—and demanding they marry at once . . .
To unexpected suitor . . .
The last thing Godric wants to do is make the fiery, impulsive Eva his wife, despite her delectable mouth and alluring innocence. He knows from experience that nothing is forever, not even love. But honor demands he do right by the lady, no matter how stubbornly Eva tries to hold on to her independence. And while the road to the Scottish border is beset with danger, Godric’s greatest challenge is to keep his hands—and his heart—from his captivating bride-to-be . . .
Ms Spencer knows how to write! This book has a lot of tropes enemies to lovers, one bed/carriage, May-December, and they're all written with Ms Spencer's flair.
We met both hero and heroine in the last book, the heroine in the last series actually, and I wondered how she would make everything work. In the 1st book in the series Godric is a complete asshole, not only that, he's actually the villain. When I saw that Eva kidnapped him, I couldn't understand her thought process: what did you think it will happen woman?!
Godric suffers from PTSS and that's what drives him in book 1 and also in book 2. He's actually not a complete asshole, but he can't see besides his perceived revenge. When he's with Eva, he can't not be charmed. She's kind of everything he's not: she embraces her emotions, she's not afraid to love, she's enjoying her life(not the season though) and she's being true to herself.
I had a lot of fun reading this and Ms Spencer made me feel so much! I cheered and cried with Eva and I never wanted this book to end... But when it did, it had a phenomenal ending so now, I just want the next book :D
