Before I begin
3rd attempt 😂 Not a reflection of content, etc. Just hard to focus. Think being 1 day ahead of my readalong of This Scot Of Mine makes it so I can read more freely 🤗 Excited to finally delve into this series 🤗
Prologue – Chapter 5
The story was introduced well 👍🏽 My interest is piqued. Anabelle isn’t an unlikable heroine 🤷🏽♀️ The enemies to lovers vibe between Simon and Annabelle is fun to read 😂 Interesting dynamic Annabelle is pretty but poor 🤔 The fast friendship between the Wallflowers is cute 😊 Like how the chapters aren’t too long either 😉
Chapter 6 – Chapter 11
The girls’ friendship is growing in an interesting pace and way 🤗 Note: Didn’t keep track too well until after chapter 9! But in this section… Hodgeham makes me cringe, out-of-town hunting party 👏🏽 Simon Hunt and Annabelle 😂 Rounders 😏 The ball post rounders 😂
Chapter 12 – Chapter 16
The chapter read pretty well! 👏🏽 Hodgeham is slimeball! The lack of choice Phillippa gets is sad 😞 I don’t blame her. She is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Annabelle’s growing fondness for Simon 👍🏽 Especially the way he took care of Annabelle was swoon-worthy 🤗 The kiss they share was hot 🔥 The dynamic between Lillian and Westcliff 😂👍🏽
Chapter 17 – Chapter 22
Lord Kendall shoots his shot and Annabelle unexpectedly refuses his confession when she initially plans to trap him into marriage. Not a fan reading about entrapment and trickery. But I applaud Annabelle for not going through with it 👏🏽 Then Simon swoops in and cements his position at Annabelle’s side through marriage. I like them together 😁 They feel like a real couple.
Chapters 23 – Epilogue
I enjoyed the story! I feel the fire 🔥 was high stakes, but ended in a very satisfying way 🤗 Refreshing it didn’t end with a wedding (they’re already married 😂) and kids, just so happy with each other ❤️Love kids, but that’s not everyone’s end goal so I’m glad to see alternate endings 😁 The way Lillian and Westcliff were teased 😍 makes me excited for the next book 📖!
