YES. JUST YES.
This story had me hooked with its very first sentence. Gentleman's Guide is full of adventure and sexual tension and wit and sexual tension and danger and DID I MENTION THE TENSION?
A+ CHARACTERS. I CAN'T EVEN. Monty is a hot mess, yet it's in the most endearing way possible. He has got to be one of the sassiest, most sarcastic, sexed up lads out there but it's impossible not to be reeled in by those dimples! CAN YOU SAY CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT?! Holy Gods. Yes, Mackenzi, yes! This boy is the most intriguing onion. I'd love to hang out with him! He'd totally drink me under the table though, and probably attempt to *do* something under the table....
Speaking of under the table....FOOTSY. Footsy that I DON'T think was QUITE an accident. Oh, Percy, you sweet, sweet bloke you. He needs a prequel or a sequel, ANYTHING, I need more of this adorable and intelligent boy in my life.
The Percy/Monty ship is REAL you guise. I CAN'T. Just OH MY GOD. KISS YOU BRITISH BASTARDS.
I was all for the SEXUALLY CHARGED romance in this story, the freaking badass adventure, and the MYSTERY OF IT ALL. Yes.
Also, SHOUT OUT to my girl Felicity for being a smart lass who don't take no shit!
MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE! please and thanks.
