Everything and the Moon

Blurb from

Seven years ago she broke his heart... 

When Robert Kemble stumbles across Victoria Lyndon in hedgerow maze, he can't believe his eyes. The girl who'd torn him in two, who let him plan on elopement and then left him standing by the side of the road, was suddenly within arm's reach, and even though his fury still knew no bounds, she was impossible to resist...

Seven years ago he left her all but ruined... 

Victoria's father had told her an earl would never marry a vicar's daughter, and he was right. Robert had promised her marriage, then danced off to London while she suffered the shame of a foiled elopement. But even though Victoria doesn't particularly enjoy her new life as a governess, when Robert offers her a job of a different sort—his mistress—she refuses, unable to sacrifice her honor, even for him.

But Robert won't take no for an answer, and he vows to make her his, through any means possible. Can these star-crossed lovers learn to trust again? And is love really sweeter the second time around?

My Review:

The first 1/3 of the book really annoyed me, I agreed with Victoria's father wholeheartedly, stay the hell away from the rich dude who only meets with you in the middle of the night, he obviously doesn't have the best of intentions. In the "7-years-later" part it felt like I was reading about two totally different characters who just happened to have the same names as those in the beginning of the book, these characters were a lot less idiotic, but over time became equally annoying. The book did have some redeeming qualities, I enjoyed the banter between the h/H, I liked Ellie's sister...yeah that's basically it.

I wouldn't  recommend this book to most of my friends, it was basically the story of a stupid girl who risked her reputation and future happiness on a spoiled rich guy. Sure, in the end it sort of paid off, but taking that risk in the first place was  on a plane of idiocy all on it's own. I can't enjoy a book very much if I'm constantly disgusted by the characters.

Ever Yours~
