Maybe He is Actually Right After All

The Scandalous, Dissolute, No-Good Mr. Wright by Tessa Dare

Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.

Summary: Miss Eliza Cade is a lady in waiting. And waiting.

Because of a foolish mistake in her youth, she's not allowed "out" in Society until her three older sisters are wed. But while she's trying to be good, she keeps bumping elbows—and, more distressingly, lips—with notorious rake Harry Wright. Every moment she spends with him, she risks complete ruin.

The sensual passions he stirs in her are so wrong . . . but Eliza just can't resist Mr. Wright.

Review: A sweet and quick romance read with enjoyable and likable characters.

The romance between Eliza and Harry really is a sweet one. Sure, there was plenty of passion and a few stolen kisses, but what stands out the most is how they came to care about and love each other. This story is told over a few years, which I enjoyed since it only helped to build the tension between them. Plus, I am getting very sick of instalove so it was a nice choice to have so much time pass in a novella. I always got a giggle out how the main male character is named Mr. Wright even though he is supposed to be so bad and therefore, very wrong for Eliza.

I adored Harry. He was an amazing man. I will admit that, at first, Harry really grated on my nerves and I was prepared to dislike him, but as the story went on, I came to care a lot for him. He had a big heart and thought of others before himself. What I liked most about him is that he held back his passions for Eliza. He didn't try to seduce her or force him to have sex with her. Big bonus in my book. Eliza was a bit naive at times, but she had a good heart and I was glad she got her happy ending.


Recommendation: I would recommend this book to those are looking for a sweet, slow romance story.
