This was perfectly sweet! It was everything I wanted and hoped for. A friends to lovers, house party and love triangle with unrequited love. I loved the easygoing Nathan and how he choose to enter buildings.
Margaret or Meg for short has very loving parents but due to an unfortunate sickness earlier, Meg missed the season. So her mother plants a house party and invites some gentleman. Nathan is allowed to come – to help entertain the other ladies. Surely Lady Hall doesn’t think of Nathan as a suitor.
All was going according to plan – as it always does until it doesn’t 😉 I couldn’t put this book down. It’s a short and quick read but full of great characters, scenes and swoony good feels.
I think Karen Thornell is making herself to be one of my go-to authors and I can’t wait to read more of her work! I received a ebook arc copy of this book from the author but these are my own thoughts and opinions.
Nathaniel Blake has been in love with his best friend, Meg, for as long as he can remember. Though a gentleman himself, his status in Society is inarguably below Meg’s own. Determined to avoid the label of “fortune hunter,” Nathaniel has long concealed the feelings of his heart. But when Meg’s parents determine to throw a house party for the sole purpose of marrying her off, it is clear that idleness is no longer an option.
The daughter of a wealthy baronet, Margaret Hall has always known she is expected to marry well. After illness forced Meg to miss her first London Season, her mother is not willing to allow her to sit off the marriage mart for too long. There is to be a house party that will include three eligible men for her to choose from. Meg is determined to make her parents proud. Still, she cannot help but be grateful that her closest friend, Nathan, has been invited as well. But when Meg begins to develop feelings that are far beyond friendship, will she have the courage to choose her own happiness over duty?
