Oh boy Philip Hawthorne you are confusing the crap out of me This guy takes the cake for the most arrogant haughty uptight judgmental hero I ve read about so far Plus wishy washy thrown in there too I just don t understand him He loves to remind the heroine every two seconds how she s beneath him in class Your position is far below mine yet turns around telling her he s never treated her like a servant Uh huh How does that work now She grew up as part of the working class you PAYED HER OFF when she wanted to marry your brother at the age of 15 banished her insult her at every turn love to remind her on a daily basis how inferior her existence is to you yet you NEVER treated her like a servant Pick a damn side Can t have it both ways there buddyYeah 2 seconds away from throwing this out the window There s only so much contradictory silliness I can take Update Managed to finish this but with a lot of skimming and skipping parts The plot was very dry and dull The blurb sounded interesting but the actual story left a lot to be desired Besides my issues w the hero Philip there were two things that didn t work First I was a little bit confused about the time setting of this book and how the characters interacted I thought it was unrealistic and confusing to read about an unmarried woman no matter her station opening up her own business burrowing money from a rich Duchess and having a man visit her at late hours with no one batting an eye It was completely inaccurate to the historical period this book takes place in I had to suspend belief and try to swallow the idea of the heroine Maria being able to open her own business by HERSELF and run around alone with no one raising an eyebrow Yeah Right It s the 1800s stuff like that doesn t fly in English society She wasn t shunned or turned away for any of it which made no sense I understand this was a progressive Victorian era maybe but still it was reaching and so unrealistic Second the hero in this was supposed to be secretly in lust with Maria for years since they were kids and as it turns out has loved her since childhood That was the most outrageous thing about this whole story I had a really hard time buying it His declaration at the end while sweet fell short and so forced considering through most of the book he was degrading her badgering her trying to kick her out of her shop bossing her around and giving her ultimatums and here I m supposed to believe he s loved her this whole time Yeah sorry don t buy it It was too contrived for me His reasoning for buying her off when she was 15 was kinda reaching for me I just didn t believe it considering the action behind his words Or rather lack there of If you secretly are in love with a woman you don t try to humiliate and belittle her at every turn And he even kept admitting he didn t understand his attraction to her and seemed rather pissed off by it Umwhat Makes no sense That doesn t sound like love to me It was very contradictory for me and so inconsistent Yeah so overall wasn t working for me It had some nice parts I liked Maria but found myself not caring much for the over all story or the characters Bleh

I love romances with the I ve always loved you trope I love enemies to lovers I love stuffy heroes A book that combined these three things should have been PERFECT for me if only the author hadn t forced some PP aspects that messed everything upLike in PPMr Darcy the Maruess proposes while telling Miss Bennett Maria that she s beneath him socially and how he s proposing against his will Like Miss Bennett Maria tells him there s no force in the world that would compel her to marry him This stupid proposal made no sense whatsoever in this booka Philip Maria knew each other as children Didn t he realize she wouldn t take well to a proposal of that natureb Unlike Mr Darcy he didn t confess his feelings but said he only desired her A man who had loved a woman for 10 years should have a better understanding of his feelingsc Unlike many of his peers he runs his own business so he doesn t mind flounting convention So he why would he mind marrying a social inferior specially when he s crazy in love with herThe public proposal at the end maddened me even This could have been so freaking good if the author would have just let the story unfold
