The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue, by Mackenzie Lee

9780062382801_p0_v1_s550x406Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven ‘t been able to curb any of his roguish passions – not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men. But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end.

I loved this book!!! Everything about it was perfect and so so sweet. The romance was swoon-worthy and the ship was so well written!!!!! I can’t wait for the sequel!!! 

Let’s do something crazy and talk about the writing style first. I loved it!!!! Ms. Lee’s style was so light and somewhat carefree. She was able to convey what she needed to with humor and ease. She was able to build up the characters so that I liked them a lot. Even when they were being stupid. I couldn’t help but root for everyone, except the villains. Ms. Lee made the worst of situations hopeful. I could honestly go on an endless rant about Ms. Lee’s writing style.

The characters were the best part of this book. Monty, Percy, and Felicity were one of the best squads ever!!! I really enjoyed their humor and their relationship. Monty and Felicity had one of the best sibling relationships I have read in a while.  It was very realistic and quite funny. Now for the most heart-wrenching part of the book. Monty and Perry’s romance.

The romance gutted me. I wanted them to get together from page one and they didn’t. Monty would say all the wrong things and I would want to curl into a ball and cry. These guys are just so pure and they deserve a happy ending. I wanted too smack them both on the head and tell them to both get together already. They were so cute together and can’t wait to see where their relationship goes in the next book.

The plot was very well-written. I loved how it constantly kept me on my toes and was always ready to break my heart into a million pieces. Ms. Lee was very skilled at dropping the right information at the right time (is there a word for that)!!! I always needed to know more and be reassured that Monty and Percy would have a happy ending. I needed that. And then there was the ending. It was then I’d ever dreamed of. I can’t wait for the next book to see where the trio’s journey takes them.

I really loved this book and can’t wait for the sequel. I recommend it to everyone who hasn’t read it yet. Go pick it up. Also, on an unrelated note. TRUTHWITCH HAS BEEN OPTIONED FOR TV!!!! Show your support and if you haven’t read Truthwitch then what are you waiting for? Go pick it up now!!!! I got the summary from the Library of Congress. Remember to do my survey. You can find the link to it on my about page. Thanks for Reading!!!! Have a Great Day!!!! -Annalee and Buttons
