    2. I ve given this a C at AAR, so 3.5 stars.I confess that I was feeling a little jaded when I started reading this book I ve read or listened to several titles over the last few weeks which I d classify as fluff light hearted, often comedic romances which, while enjoyable, are like the proverbial Chinese meal Half an hour later you ve forgotten all about it and want another one I should also make it clear that I have nothing against fluff in fact, I m a fan when it s done well, and when I started [...]

    8. This was on my list for awhile and I was eagerly waiting to read it Unfortunately, the book did not live up to my expectations There are very few books that can really capture the romance between people of different classes falling in love, in a somewhat believable way given the genre, a suspension of disbelief is almost a must and a few books do it perfectly I was hoping this book might be one of those few I began reading this a couple hours ago and was determined to finish it in one sitting wh [...]

    9. Entretenido Aunque Molly y Carver me han parecido pesados en ciertas ocasiones, el libro en general ha ido bien Es cierto que en algunos momentos la historia se ralentiza pero en general es divertida y bastante r pida Debo decir que ha sido mas que clich , as que si eres de las personas que odian los clich s, este libro no es para ti Si por otro lado, no te importa ese detalle y te gustan los romances predecibles, este libro es tuyo Me hubiese gustado un epilogo de unos a os mas all para saber c [...]

I wanted to like this book Dear god, did I It had so much potential The dialogue whenever it did pop up, which was rare was witty and even funny The characters were each different and enjoyable and the plot was a stray from the usual HR tropes Only it wasn t All of this was hindered by TOO MUCH FUCKING PADDING Now, I haven t and don t intend to read the other books in the series and I d never even heard of this author before but the premise was promising and I needed something fresh Something in [...]

    13. The benefits of reading Miss Molly Robbins Designs a Seduction 1 She was no longer just a person to whom things happened she made the happenings for herself One major trait that makes Miss Molly Robbins stands out is perhaps its unlikely premise Margaret Molly Robbins, a lady s maid turned seamstress, starts her own business in London with nothing but her strong country bones and some reluctant financial backing by her ex employer, the charming scoundrel Earl of Everscham Molly Robbins does not [...]

    16. Originally posted HERE.As one of eleven children born to poor but hardworking parents And right from the start, showing a touch of Northanger Abbey, I was won over with a bit of realism in this Regency romp It seems that, apart from the likes of Lisa Kleypas, my favourite historical romance authors tend to feature a little further down the scale of success With this fourth instalment of the Sydney Dovedale series, Jayne Fresina has earned herself a new fan.I ve never read anything by this author [...]

    18.

    19. Cute story, well written and fun, if rather improbable The heroine skips out on her wedding to go back to London and take the offer of her employer s brother to finance the dressmaking business she s always wanted The hero is a rake I m not sure why but he s always been attracted to the heroine, though he denies it even to himself Until she becomes his mistress I did have a lot of problems with Fresina s disaster of the forms of address for the English aristocracy The hero is the Earl of Eversch [...]

    20. I was given an ARC by the author, and I am SO grateful THE BEST ONE YET I could not put it down and if I had to, I came up with excuses to stop what I was doing so I could read I absolutely LOVE Carver and Molly and watching them succumb to one another was delicious I love that Molly was her own woman, ready to stand on her own two feet and start her own business yes, with a little help from Carver And I love how Carver was shown to be much than what was seen at face value The dialogue was wit [...]

    21. Until this book, I had never read anything by Jayne Fresina, but this was a great introduction, and I look forward to reading many , and have already checked out her back list adding Lady Mercy Danforthe Flirts with Scandal as one of my next to read books In this story, Carver and Molly are clearly drawn to each other and seeing them grow confident in themselves, and their relationship is a special journey, and I thoroughly enjoyed their story With lines like, The burden of carrying that halo a [...]

    22. For the most part I liked the book I really like Molly I thought she had a lot of guts trying to start her own business in a time that most women weren t independent Her frank banter with Carver was a lot of fun Carver was a little hard to like at first, but as I got to see his softer side, he won me over The ways in which he kept giving help to Molly s business were very endearing I also loved how he kept trying to seduce Molly The romance was sweet and very satisfying There was a little twist [...]

    23. Fresina s romance is a delightfully fluffy read, though she also aims for gravitas by endowing her hero with some nastiness in childhood and her heroine with low self esteem The cross class issues, which are serious in this context, are dismissed quite easily Read this wittily written novel for its humour and the banter between the leads, but keep in mind it s light on the historical detail and authenticity If you d like to read a extensive review, please follow the link missbatesreadsromance [...]

    24. This book was better than the last one by far Not only were the main characters likable with a decent relationship, but the majority of the secondary characters were actually nice people as well aside from the one snobby friend and the ex mistress The twist came as no surprise by the time of the reveal still, it was a pleasant twist I will probably give this author another chance since the writing was good even if the worst of her characters played to badly framed stereotypes One thing I should [...]

    25. Soon, once winter took the countryside in its firm grip, those same branches would be stark and bare against the bleak sky But buds would sprout again eventually, and birds would nest there By the time the next Everscham heir was born, the cherry and apple trees that bordered the lane to Sydney Dovedale would celebrate the occasion with festoons of pink and white blossom And thus the cycle of life began all over again I just love the way how Jayne Fresina writes her stories However I must say th [...]

    26. It was front loaded with a lot of backstory and flashbacks from various points of time Personally, that s difficult for me to keep all of that information straight in my head My preference as a reader is that it be revealed through story when its important because I m simply not going to remember all of those details 100 pages in When the backstory continued on into the second chapter I had to call it a DNF ARC provided by Netgalley
