I completed … The Queer Rules of Package Webb by Cat Sebastian
I additionally completed a gown! So satisfying. (You’ll be able to see the gown underneath the guide, in actual fact!)
Sebastian’s latest is a romance between nobleman-in-need-of-vengeance Percy and reformed-highwayman Package. The heist was actually secondary to the story, because it was concerning the two of them determining their futures — individually, finally collectively — discovered household, loyalty, all that.
In studying this I found that I am not deeply keen on 1760s vogue (or 1780s, I overlook exactly). Sebastian does an exquisite job of describing Percy’s flamboyant au courant styling — wigs, face powder, facial patches, fancy hose and jackets and no matter — and I cherished how a lot Package responded to that, despite the fact that I needed to maintain googling to remind myself that Percy was trendy, not a clown.
A great, strong learn however this wasn’t a favourite. I am unable to exactly put my finger on what made this a ‘tremendous’ learn versus a tremendous one as a result of it has the whole lot there. However it took some time for sexytimes after which, I do not know, it felt oddly rushed. And each fundamental characters take some time to open up with their secrets and techniques so we’re ready a very long time for that. And Sebastian is such a stellar author that the good books are SO GOOD.
