I completed … The Queer Ideas of Package Webb by Cat Sebastian
I additionally completed a gown! So satisfying. (You possibly can see the gown beneath the e-book, actually!)
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 trend (or 1780s, I neglect exactly). Sebastian does a beautiful job of describing Percy’s flamboyant au courant styling — wigs, face powder, facial patches, fancy hose and jackets and no matter — and I liked how a lot Package responded to that, though I needed to maintain googling to remind myself that Percy was modern, not a clown.
An excellent, strong learn however this wasn’t a favourite. I can not exactly put my finger on what made this a ‘superb’ learn versus an incredible one as a result of it has all the pieces there. However it took some time for sexytimes after which, I do not know, it felt oddly rushed. And each primary 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 nice books are SO GOOD.
