MY NEW RELEASE REVIEW of
Waiting For an Earl Like You
A Masters of Seduction Novel
by Alexandra Hawkins
St. Martin’s Press /St. Martin’s Paperbacks /Romance
LOVE ISN’T ALWAYS WHAT IT SEEMS.
Get lost in Waiting for an Earl Like You, the next lush, sensual Regency romance in the Masters of Seduction series by USA Today bestselling author Alexandra Hawkins.
Justin Reeve Netherwood, Earl of Kempthorn—a.k.a. Thorn—has never cared much for his neighbor’s daughter. But his twin brother, Gideon, befriended the wild, reckless, and wholly inappropriate Miss Olivia Lydall in youth, and two have been close ever since. So when Olivia finds herself in a state of romantic conflict and seeks out Gideon for advice, he’s only too pleased to oblige. Only problem: The man Olivia is speaking to is Thorn. And now it’s too late for him to tell Olivia the truth…
Thorn always believed that Olivia was too smitten with Gideon for her own good. So what’s the harm in steering her away from him? But Thorn’s charade turns out to be anything but harmless once he begins to see Olivia for who she really is: A woman full of spirit and passion…and someone he can’t live without. But how can Thorn claim Olivia’s heart when their deepening connection—and burning desire—is built on lies and deceit?
Olive and Thorn’s story is a very intriguing mixture of passion, comical dialog and just a touch of mystery near end. I would have never guessed this final twist in the story.
I most certainly look forward to the continuation of this series. I enjoyed the read. I had not read nor did I own any other book by Alexandra Hawkins on my Kindle but will endeavor to look for others to read.
After checking I found this to be book #3 in this series. Although this is the third book it does well as a standalone title.
I would give this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and 4 of 5 flames for heat. It is a book full of passion and the dialog between the hero and heroine is oftentimes very funny.
I received a complimentary digital copy through NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion.
