Check-ins/Updates:

Before I begin:

Still a SBU pick and loving this season ๐Ÿฅฐ From the product description, seems like any other HR ๐Ÿง but it may surprise me ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Monday: Chapters 1 – 4

The beginning didnโ€™t go like I expected ๐Ÿค” From what I gathered, Sarah is unfortunately meant to marry Felix Foot but sheโ€™d rather lie about being promised. Sarah sees and injured ๐Ÿค• unconscious Colin and nurses him back to health. When we first meet Colin, he is captured ๐Ÿ˜ฑ but he escapes ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ Feel this will be encountered again later ๐Ÿง Sarah claims to be engaged to Colin ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ Definitely not hooked on the story YET but intrigued ๐Ÿค” Appreciate the action packed in already ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ and itโ€™s atypical typical start ๐Ÿง 

  • The way the story begins, we see Colin is different from our other heroes this season ๐Ÿค” What happened before this book? Colinโ€™s come ons ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚ Interesting reading a POV of someone whoโ€™s done wrong ๐Ÿง Canโ€™t say Iโ€™ve hadโ€ฆ Can only imagine ๐Ÿ’ญโ€ฆ
  • What did Colin do?Liking this season too ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ Get the bell comparison ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‡ #priorities ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tuesday: Chapters 5 – 9

In this section, we see more of Colin as a scoundrel from otherโ€™s POV ๐Ÿค” because, otherwise I donโ€™t see itโ€ฆ In that sense, feel like Iโ€™m missing something not having read the prior books ๐Ÿค” Like Sarah as a character, still TBD about Colin but the kids SHIP them ๐Ÿ˜

  • As always, great summary ๐Ÿ˜Š Get more information about Colin ๐Ÿง mr. Foot ๐Ÿคฌ Agree, we should count. Its like therapy, may be easier to be yourself when your past is unknownโ€ฆ
  • My notes are wrong ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ been spelling Foote Foot ๐Ÿ˜‚ In this case, it might be better thereโ€™s stuff we donโ€™t know ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

Wednesday: Chapters 10 – 14

Mr. Snyder adds an interesting dynamic to the plot. Like the relocation to London. With this relocation, we finally get kissing between Sarah and Colin. Family dynamics always test a relationship, but we see Sarah-Colin arenโ€™t ideal ๐Ÿค” Honestly forgot how Sarahโ€™s dad diedโ€ฆ Howโ€™d it happen?! Foote seems to be out of the story now.

  • 2 months laterโ€ฆ Is it me or was there a jump? Food is how some people show their love ๐Ÿค” Double fake engagement ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Did I miss desk sex?! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Whatโ€™s a red herring (besidres a fish)?

Thursday: Chapters 15 – 19

Honestly, mixing this up with

Key similarities are fake identity ๐Ÿค” Colin continues being plagued by his pastโ€ฆ Footโ€™s back in the story ๐Ÿ˜ฑ The threat he poses is pushing Rose and Colin together, not entirely to their ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ Seriously getting a better grasp on the old Colin ๐Ÿง 

  • Charlotteโ€™s going to add spiciness ๐ŸŒถ Whoโ€™s Charles? Fake dating (when done right) โ™ฅ๏ธ Liking the friendship with Jane ๐Ÿฅฐ Thatโ€™s SBU is so clutch ๐Ÿ˜ wouldnโ€™t get Colin context otherwise
  • Footeโ€™s role is bigger than I expected ๐Ÿคฌ I feel thereโ€™s more page time given to Foote when thereโ€™s another unaddressed conflict ๐Ÿค” Reading this with The Marquess Makes His Move and having bouts of ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‡ Built up the story forreal! 2 villains ๐Ÿฆนโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿฆนโ€โ™‚๏ธ now!
  • #priorities ๐Ÿด and ๐ŸŽถ sad ๐Ÿ˜ข to hear Colin was essentially prohibited from doing music ๐ŸŽถ nothing like a near death experience ๐Ÿฅฐ sucker for letters โ™ฅ๏ธ epistolary ๐Ÿ˜

Friday: Chapters 20 – 26

3rd act expected bored ๐Ÿ˜ but I enjoy Colin & Sarahon page together ๐Ÿ˜ Knew we didnโ€™t see the last of Felix Foot ๐Ÿฆนโ€โ™‚๏ธ They exchange I love yous a little late, but I get this miscommunication (just sad it happened after a kidnapping). What if Sarah really died?! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ No 3rd act break-up ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ and no epilogue ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿผ 

  • 4/4 for kidnapping so far ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Wedding skipped AGAIN. ๐ŸŽน ๐Ÿ”ฅ (just that it happened). The daughter should be addressed in future books ๐Ÿค” 

End of book ๐Ÿ“–

This story began unexpectedly but eventually followed the typical plot devicesโ€ฆ Contains care-taking ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ and a heroine I enjoyed. This story needs to be read in series order (for best reading experience).
