ARC Review: My Notorious Gentleman by Gaelen Foley

Title: My Notorious Gentleman (The Inferno Club, #6)
Author: Gaelen Foley
Source: Edelweiss
Genre: Historical Romance
Length: Novel (452 pgs)
Reviewed by: CaroleDee

Notorious and fearless, Lord Trevor Montgomery must confront his greatest challenge yet: marriage!

Shy, warm-hearted Miss Grace Kenwood knows she has no chance of tempting her new neighbor, Lord Trevor Montgomery. Every eligible beauty is swooning over the brooding former spy. Even though he once kissed her senseless, he can have no interest in someone like her. Yet somehow, the seductive rogue unleashes her own inner devil…

Every lady loves a hero, but Trevor has no interest in any of them— except for the refreshingly candid Grace. If he had a heart left, Grace might steal it. She insists he's better than he thinks. He's sure she's absolutely wrong. Until danger threatens, and Trevor rediscovers how easy it is to be a hero…for the right lady.

The story was okay, the writing fantastic, but........Grace. 
Oh, Grace *Shaking head*

I couldn't relate to Grace one teeny tiny bit. She was SUCH a good girl that I'm pretty sure she would eligible for sainthood. I liked Trevor, but together they just seemed a bit like oil and water. He mentions a lot that after the hectic life of being a spy that he wants peace and quiet. 

Well, he's going to get it with Grace. 
Probably to the point of dying of boredom.

The only time I really got excited during the book is when I got a peek into the imprisoned life of a former comrade that turned bad. His book is next, so I guess I'll get my fill, in it, of all the baddie goodness that was missing in My Notorious Gentleman.

I have read the previous five books in the Inferno Club series and loved them. But as Dean Martin said, 'You can't love 'em all'

  1. Sometimes it's hard to relate to a character which makes liking the book that much harder.
